The buffet was fabulous. Made to order omelets and huge blueberry muffins crusted with coarse sugar like Aunt Mary used to give us.

Ate in Parker's Bar. Had Steak Tips, The tips were served in delicious steak sauce, the mashed potatoe was whipped and presented as a flower. The vegetables were raw and included string beans and a petite squash and zuchini.Also included were of course the parker house rolls. As excellent as the food was the service was even better.

At 8:30 p.m. we went into their gorgeous, formal dining room for Boston Cream Pie which was originally created in this Parker House. The host said it was fine that we were having only dessert. The dining room had a only a few tables occupied. The Boston Cream Pie was delicious but looked and tasted nothing like the Boston Cream... More

The décor, furniture and service blissfully took my wife and I back to the 1950'S. That's a good thing. The menu is broad (at many high level restaurants today we wonder what is the least bad thing on the menu that we can order), the service is prompt but not intrusive and the food is well presented. Each of our... More

JFK proposed to Jackie there. Malcolm X was a busboy there. Ho Chi Minh was a baker there. The Filet Mignon was amazing. The Boston Cream Pie was... More

The filet mignon steaks were tender enough to cut with a fork, salmon was grilled to perfection on wild rice, crab cakes were not breaded but were cooked well, breakfast buffet feature a chef to cook omelets, belgian waffles, pancakes along with the standard fluffy scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage links and patties.

This is probably THE best meal I have ever had in a restaurant. The ambiance is wonderful. The food...absolutely awesome. The famous Parker House rolls, the filet Mignon, the chef's special creamy vinegarette dressing on the salad, the Boston Cream Pie. Every time my husband and I visit Boston, we make a point of making reservations at Parker's. Francesco greets... More

We stayed at the Omni and as part of our package we received a food and beverage credit. I was a little leery, but we ate there twice and it was wonderful. The first day we had lunch. We both had the lobster rolls, that were hands down the best lobster rolls I have had. I am still thinking about... More
