Living in NJ and planning a celebration in Boston, in February, with guests from 4 different states should be a stressful situation. Fortunately, I had the direction of the banquet manager, Darina who worked to make our celebration festive and flawless. The staff was attentive, helpful and informative. They took the time to explain the history behind the building adding ... More

We stopped in for a late dinner. The filet was cooked to perfection. Our server was very helpful with menu suggestions. Nice rustic decor: exposed beams, brick walls and wrought iron.

First time at the restaurant and they were on their game. Between the two of us we had a chopped salad, clam chowder, one of the tuna entrees, the lobster stuffed scrod and lava cake. The chopped salad was amazing. This was the highest quality piece of tuna I have had in at least a couple of years. My wife... More

We went there for lunch on February 4 to celebrate my 50th birthday. It was our first trip to Boston and the Chart House was recommended by a friend that use to live in Boston. The service and the meal was excellent. They even sang to me which was a surprise. It was enjoyable hearing the history of the building.... More

I ordered the chopped spinach salad, minus the radishes and mushrooms, no problem they said, were supposed to be made to order. I picked out the radishes and mushrooms, but it wasn't like a mistake in the order, Bc if I had ordered as normal, there should have been plenty more...not just a few dropped in, and partial, not whole...)...

We were a bit hesitant after some reviews, but very happy we went. We were early for our reservation so we headed to the lounge. The bar staff were friendly and our drinks were perfect. We were seated upstairs on the 3rd floor. The food was very good, seemed to be a long wait for our food though. The food... More

Really enjoyed having dinner here on a Friday night. Everyone in the restaurant was friendly and helpful. Food was really good! I had New England clam chowder, baked cod and mashed potatoes. The building is the second oldest building in Boston and it has been preserved beautifully. Great atmosphere. I highly recommend it!

Great service and good food. Nice wine list and beer wasn't bad either. I had fresh fish and we were given a complimentary dessert. A wonderful experience.

Having spent only a Day in Boston I was looking for a decent place to get some Seafood, to be precise lobster. As i was getting a recommendation from a friend I gave it a shot and was not dissapointed! Our waiter, Joseph, was very attentive and had an excellent taste of what one could seek coming to this spot.... More

This restaurant is very historic and charming, located right on the water. There was a reception held there that I attended and afterwards we had dinner there. The reception was held on the third floor and I did not see an elevator so someone who is mobility challenged might have some difficulty. Their specialty is obviously seafood but my companion...

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.
