Okay, most hotel restaurants are a little stale or safe. On top of that, our visit to this restaurant was to celebrate a graduation, so we had a set menu. However, the food choices, although conservative (with a small "c"), were well balanced and very well prepared. The traditional ambience was very good. The wait staff were attentive, without being...

We decided to try the hotel restaraunt. The menu was interesting and typical of Boston. The famous Parker rolls were soft and tasty. I had fresh oysters and then risotto with lobster. It was tasty however the risotto was slightly under cooked and a little gluggy. I tried the famous Boston cream pie which is essentially a sponge cake with... More

The food was very good, particularly the seafood and the sliders. However, the bar did not have any beer on draft.

What do Boston Cream Pie, Parker house rolls, historical ambiance and Ho Chi Minh all have in common? All have a connection to the Parker House! Yes, Ho Chi Minh worked here as a dishwasher. The elegant dining room is a throw back to the 18th and 19th century with its atmosphere. The service is outstanding including the friendly and... More

Just went to the Parker Restaurant Bar to get some Boston Cream Pie from the place where it was invented!!! Good stop. It was around $9 and about the size of a baseball. Just go in the Omni Parker House Hotel and go to the bar, or restaurant for a quick treat.

My wife and I ate at the Parker's Restaurant with old friends. The place is very elegant and there was no problem getting a reservation on a Saturday night. Francisco (sp?) was our waiter and he did a great job--very informed about the food, he made great recommendations, and he was charming. We ordered one lobster meal, one scallop, and... More

We were forced to take refuge in the Omni Parker House Hotel by back-to-back cancellations of our European flight. The staff was most pleasant and professional! The ambiance of this landmark hotel is absolutely awesome (I actually say 5 year olds looking up at the ceilings with their mouths open in awe!). We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast of Boston Benedict...pricey... More

We bought travelzoo voucher but we were NOT able to use, the restaurant claims you can only show up under reservation. Basically you cannot enter if you do not have reservations and reservations needs to be done 2-3 weeks in advance ( they claim to be always booked), we try to make a regular reservation and we have to wait...
