Empty restaurant, excellent meal

Myself, my wife and her best friend went to dinner after a performance and the restaurant was close to empty at 9 PM on a Sunday night. That is no slight to the place as everything was very good. For a starter, I had mussels. They were fat, hot and delicious. I had the rabbit and was very happy... read more

The food was pretty good. They have quite a lot of options. We just happened to walk by and came upon it. So happy we did!! :) Will probably head back for the half off oysters and clams later!!

One of the best mid-priced lunch restaurants in downtown crossing with some interesting food options fairly well cooked. Not a destination, but worth going to. I've had and would recommend the rabbit, ravioli, pork chop, and broccoli rabe.

The upstairs dining room is lit with soft candle light, The menu was varied and the execution was delicious. Perfect for our very special dinner.

I use Opentable for local restaurants and decided that this was where my BFF and I were going for our year-end lunch. If we had read the latest reviews form TripAdvisor, I would have given it a pass. Anyway, we ordered the tuna which was good but the scallop was ourstanding. The staff was pleasant and appropriately attentive. So, for... More

If I can't say something nice. But so what? I've been to this place twice in ten years, both times for group outings when I didn't have a choice. For all the time in between, I had plenty of choices, and Marliave was never one of them. This place has been around forever, and maybe for some Bostonites (I'm a... More

First off, I have worked in the service industry and this menu looked amazing online. I came here tonight with my mom who is visiting out of town. Initially it was okay but the area around the hostess stand had an odor that was a bit off. We were seated upstairs and the aromas from the kitchen smelled awesome!! We... More

Food was over cooked. Restaurant was not busy and very slow service. Management did not address the problem as expected in food service. I would not recommend .

My husband and I had a fabulous dinner on our mini honeymoon visit to Boston in October. We both ordered the french onion soup to start off and we both agreed it was the best we ever had. The husband ordered chicken under a brick with the mushroom risotto and it was easily five stars. I ordered the scallops with... More

Marliave was recomended by a family member as a must visit on our recent trip to Boston. My wife and I visited on a Friday night and the place was hopping. The downstairs has a large bar area with some booths perfect for big groups. We dined in the upstairs dining area which is a little more intimate, but still... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
