I went to the Aura restaurant for breakfast. The menu was full of delicious items and I initially ordered only from the menu but both my hostess, Ashley, and my waiter, Michael, advised me to have the buffet because everything I wanted was there and much more and it would cost the same. I really did not want a big... More

I went to Aura for breakfast one of the mornings I stayed at the Seaport and my colleague told our server what her ideal breakfast was (and it wasn't a menu item). He was all over it and served her her perfect breakfast. It was delightful to see.

My husband and I frequented this restaurant on the 2 mornings of our weekend stay. He ordered the buffet and I ordered an omelette. On our first morning, our server brought me a selection of fruit from the buffet as he felt my meal would take a few minutes to come out. I felt this was very thoughtful of him... More

We went the week-end of Jan 16-17 to a late brunch and the $21 buffet was essentially inedible. I am not sure the food was good to start with but all of it had been left out for several hours and it was hard, stale, and gross. I should have asked for money back. One of us got the huevos... More

We ate Thanksgiving brunch here. Our server was excellent. The buffet was plentiful but it was hard to locate some of the items which were not clearly marked and spread out over the entire restaurants. The raw bar was excellent with oysters, shrimp and clams. The breakfast bar was hidden but the food was good. The traditional Thanksgiving portion was... More

Neighborhood Profile
Seaport District / South Boston Waterfront
This area has been expanding and becoming more and more popular, for good reason. Not surprisingly, the seaport district of South Boston is located beautifully along the water. The area is designed for easy strolling along the HarborWalk, and there are bars and restaurants for all ages and budgets. The Institute of Contemporary Art is located in this area in a contemporary building with an absolutely stunning deck overlooking the water. In the summer time there are Friday music concerts on the deck of the museum. Nearby, there are many green spaces to enjoy.
