This place is great for those who want authentic French food. I had the croque monsieur and escargot. The escargot was probably the best I had ever had, and the croque monsieur was decent. I do have to say the service can be a bit pretentious.

It is a big place (that is around for a very long time) allowing us to get a table for the same night even on a Friday. Big doesn't mean one big room though, rather there are quite a few choices to sit inside and outside. We were on the 1st floor at a table near a window and had... More

It was great sitting outside on a beautiful night in September. The cocktails and food were both great.

Nice older French restaurant in the centre of Boston. The menu had good variety. The portions were great with very smart presentation. The Salmon was excellent!

An old building with steps up to the front door, so not suitable for the disabled. We ate upstairs but I noticed that there was a downstairs dining room as well. Service was ok. We had steak which was delicious and frites which had far too much salt on them.i m surprised this is still happening as there have been... More

We went to Marliave to get some average French food. So glad we did. The food was well above average and the restaurant had the old time charm. The service was initially a bit disappointing, but it improved to a very good level at the end. The beef Wellington and seared tuna were both very, very good and Martinis were... More

If you want to get away from the tourist areas go down the side street to this wonderful place. The food was wonderful, service very good. It was a blast to watch the kitchen staff work. We actually asked them not to close the doors so we could watch them in action... Our bartender was Tommy and he took very... More

Lovely hidden gem on a side street. Very old building (and in Boston that means something) surrounded by newer and much newer buildings. Many different levels and experiences for eating including a casual outside deck and more formal dining in a windowed gallery up a narrow flight of stairs. Food was varied. The menu included both smaller and casual plates... More

I have been to this restaurant in Boston many times on business. My last experience was a few days ago - I was not disappointed! I have never had a bad meal here. The restaurant is a little hidden, but once you find it you will be happy you did. If you are staying at the Omni Parker House this... 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.
