Marliave has been around for well over 100 years and I have no clue how I am just now finding the place! The building is historically old, the story of Marliave, the menu is awesome, and the drinks menu is insanely great! Get the W.C. Fields drink!!! The meatball sliders were delicious and the Steak Frites was perfectly cooked!!! A... More

Mariave is hidden away in downtown Boston, but very close to well traveled areas ( Boston Common, Govt Center ).It's interior is eclectic old school but a nice change from the cookie cut look of more modern restaurants. The food was good and so was the service, but the prices were high. If you are visiting Boston it's worth the... More

One of the city center's most historic eateries, accessible by means of a raised stone patio and wrought iron barrier, intimate, although the attraction of the place is largely the idea of its history, rather than the actual space, which is fairly standard at best. Marliave can be very busy, and the staff rushed, but for good reason - the... More

About 100 dollars for two people with desert . Their drink selection is different but there is still an open bar . It's... More

We ate at a random time when it was really slow - 3pm lunch on a Saturday. The waitstaff was attentive, and the restaurant has lots of character, having been around since the 1870s. However, the food was meh. The lettuce in the Caesar salad was cut too small to pick up with a fork. The truffle mac and cheese... More

This was a hidden gem on a great walking tour. The scallops were some of the best I've had. A great little restaurant. Definitely make reservations, there is not a lot of seating.

Saw reviews about the happy hour oysters and had to make this a pre-dinner stop. They're now half price ($1.50) not a buck but that is still a great deal. My dozen were small to medium (three types- the server identified each type) but very fresh and sweet. The vibe here is "old school" Boston restaurant which is a great... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
