A real treat, close to many Boston sights

We happened upon this restaurant while walking from Long Wharf to the Boston Common and were lucky enough to find a table open on their patio. The pasta dishes are delightful, as were the burgers we tried (with rosemary fries to die for). The cocktail list is inventive and extensive, and portion... read more

This is a lovely old style French and Italian restaurant close to the theater district on a quiet street in the financial district. On my first visit it quickly became my favorite Boston Restaurant. We went back the next night because we could not get the taste and aroma of the truffle oil and reggiano laced frites off our minds.... More

One of the few remaining old-Boston restaurants. Sadly, much of the original detail was removed in the last renovations (the downstairs room has lost its charm!), but there's still a bit of the old-fashioned feel. You can still climb the steep wooden steps to the second floor and sit by the windows with the view of older, narrow commercial streets.... More

Great surprise. We came in late after touring all day to our Hotel - Nine Zero. This restaurant was a suggestion by the hotel. It would be good to call for reservations, but we did not have any and got right in. Great dinner!!! Very unique. Its in the alleyway on the side of the hotel and could possibly, be... More

For our 2nd Anniversary, my boyfriend and I thought we should try going to Boston for the day. After a day of adventuring, we found the Marliave. It has a beautiful vintage exterior that was very inviting. We went inside and loved the ambiance. We had wonderful service throughout the whole evening. We both loved the escargot we got for...

Good food, great drinks. One waitress very pleasant, one not so. Would I go back? Yes. Little parking available but it's Boston.

Marliave does the bistro vibe pretty well, great selection and tasty food at boston city prices. Pity there is no prix-fixe. Dropped in there on a Tuesday before a concert - seating and service were very efficient and food was very well executed - had excellent and well-portioned fish and chips - beautiful fish. Good wine selections by the glass.... More

Stopped in and had a brew and noticed the wall of Nutella buckets and was informed they had a very tasty dessert pizza make with it. Didn't have any but was intrigued! Beer selection was nice and so was the bartender. Good atmosphere as well.

I have eaten at Marliave twice because it is right near my hotel. I really liked it. I thought it was going to be French, from the name, but it leans more toward Italian. It has a pretty varied menu, so it is pretty easy to find something you might be in the mood for. Both times, I ate at... More

You might think that one of the oldest restaurants in Boston would be stuffy and stodgy. Not here. The feel in the bar is cozy, warm and intimate. A good place for a drink at the bar or in one of the plush booths. Try one of the signature cocktails (named for notable Bostonians) or have a relaxed meal. Upstairs... More
