Very Nice Restaurant

We ate here while staying at the Omni Parker Hotel. The food was fantastic as was the service. They offer a great selection for Breakfast (a little pricey) but great if you want to treat yourself. For Breakfast, the Seacoast Benedict (an eggs benedict using a Crab Cake) was superb. We sampled a... read more

Beautiful restaurant in a magnificent, older (but far from falling apart) hotel. We only went to have dessert - we were told this was where the Boston Cream Pie was "born," and we were NOT disappointed. Service was excellent, and the pie (with coffee) was even better!

We went to the restaurant for brunch because, conveniently, before our trip to Boston I got a Travelzoo voucher for this restaurant. What a fantastic deal that was! It's a historic restaurant in the oldest Boston hotel with great ambiance. The staff are very aware of all the history and very willing to share it with you, also take your... More

We lived in Boston for a few years and loved the Parker House. Back for a business trip, we made a reservation for dinner and were so pleasantly surprised.... The room, the food, the service were all as wonderful as we remembered. This is exactly why The Parker House is known a the bastion of Boston tradition... It's consistently, traditionally,... More

While it is true that the decor is dated (but not shabby), we had an extraordinary dining experience here. We had pate de fois gras and tuna tartar as appetizers. Both were exceptional. I had the scallops which were perfectly prepared and presented in a light sauce and pureed sweet potatoes. The order had 4 scallops which I thought was... More

If this is the restaurant in the Omni Parker House, our dinner was most delicious! Very good service, as well.

Breakfast was ok, the buffet choice was just about adequate for the home market, but any international traveller would have struggled. The décor is dull and with the blinds all closed, it does have a rather funereal feeling, especially when eating breakfast on a brilliant summer’s morning. It also is galling that you are expected to add a gratuity to... More

This was just a bizarre experience. We were seated by the staff and told our server would be right with us but never showed up. After waiting awhile we just decided to go to the buffet. During our meal we had to stop passing servers as they walked by to ask for drinks. There was someone refilling the coffee and... More
