There is outside seating which is very nice if you can get it. Inside we sat upstairs which is also nice but the noise level in very bad. The food and service are above average. I recommend it.

My husband and I have eaten here many times, including anniversaries and their marvelous Christmastime seafood dinner. I love this restaurant! They have great bistro food at a great value- not cheap, but worth the money. I love the rarebit, the steak frites and the Wellington. The multi-course Christmas seafood dinner they did last year was truly memorable. The service... More

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner on a Tuesday evening after work. We chose to sit outside and caught a wonderful cross breeze from the ally and abutting streets. The architecture of the surrounding buildings and the Marliave itself is classic and beautiful; it's easy to forget that you're sitting just a few hundred yards from downtown crossing,... More

Definitely a good experience. The environment is nice, and perfect for a date. Service is good. Little bit overpriced but the oyster happy hour will chill the check.

It is an old building, but the food was good (though not cheap). My mom claimed the French Onion Soup was the best she's ever had, and the couple next to our table also loved it. Friendly staff and made a reservation ahead of time by phone at 645 on a Saturday and got right in around 730. Hostess said... More

Came here with my boyfriend for dinner. We got escargot for an appetizer that was pretty good (not as good as in France). I got chicken over risotto and he got steak and fries. We both loved our meals and were very full. We got brussel sprouts as a side because we thought the portions would be small. Definitely don't... More

Marliave is hidden on a side street between Downtown Crossing and Park Street. I walked by it every day and never knew it was there till a visiting friend found it. We had a really enjoyable experience. The atmosphere is french, dim, a lot of white and black. The service was good, and the food was excellent. I recommend the... More

6 of us traveled to Boston for a celebration and girls' weekend. After spending a fair amount of time researching places to go for our celebratory dinner we picked Marliave based on the variety of menu items and the reasonable wine selection and prices. I made our reservation on Open Table 3 weeks prior to the night. There were a... More

We tried to get into the owners other restaurant "The Grotto" which was highly rated but no luck. We were up on Beacon Hill and walked into and out of a lot of tourist dives. At the end of this street when you feel you could be mugged anytime, there is a quaint restaurant with a French but eclectic menu.... More
