I was actually just talking about this place with friends and how cool it is. It has a speak-easy vibe and the drinks are all made as they used to be. Very simple ingredients, resulting in a classic cocktail. The food was excellent as well. My girlfriend raves about the Sunday Gravy and says it is one of her favorite... More

A big, wonderful surprise! It was very cold and we were looking for someplace close, and Marliave was right down the block from our hotel. At first we got a seat downstairs, which truthfully wasn't great, and when we asked if we could move they nicely explained that they were full and we just got the last table, but when... More

Marliave was recommended by my hotel concierge. As advertised and reviewed, it is pretty much a landmark, and the decore and atmorphere reflection that - which I enjoyed very much. Dining is upstairs. We were there on the evening of a big sporting event, so the place was pretty much deserted. Service was fine, and as other have noted there... More

The room was stuffy very hot and that made it a bit unpleasant the food was not served hot as probably this was a timing issue in the kitchen and we had a large group over 30... More

Around the corner from our hotel (Nine Zero), third oldest Boston restaurant. Lovely ambiance, excellent oysters and clams (half price at certain hours). Ordered steak frites and scallops with pumpkin ravioli. Steak tender and tasty and fries were fairly well done (how I like 'em) with herbs. A fairly large portion. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the pumpkin ravioli... More

Good drinks but really expensive food with small portions. Went with friends after work. Of the apps we got, the meatballs sliders were the best.

Marliave was a charming spot in a lovely building. The cuisine was way above average back then. This is now a bar scene with bar food. Dined there Sat. night; had the steak frites. The frites were soggy and way too salty. Steak was pretty good. My dinner partner had the trout. Neither of us thought it rose to the... More

This is a very nice old restaurant, located on a dead end street of Tremont street in Boston. I was invited and I was worried that would be one of those old Pubs servicing Burgers and hot dogs. It was a very pleasant surprise when I first saw the extensive Menu' and later on very surprised when I tasted my... More

We were recommended by our hotel (the Kimpton) and just squeezed in before the pre-ballet rush. 3pm. I had swordfish, my other half had rabbit -it was delicious - not overly sized! Looks nothing from the outside and looks a little stark when you first go in but the meals are fab, waitresses are very efficient. This has been the... More

Having recently completed a European trip I have a new found appreciation for old. Marliave is old but its menu is quite contemporary and innovative. We were here for lunch today and the two of us had the trout and a hamburger, respectively. The food was very well prepared and was served in timely fashion. Our server was pleasant, friendly...
