As my title states the food was amazing. They have an amazing cheese selection sourced from France, Italy and New England complimented by great fig jam, honey and fresh baked bread. I had the Wellington and my wife the ravioli. Everything was great. Our only regret was eating in their courtyard instead of the dining room we feel like the... More

I can't quite believe I'm giving this place 3 stars. Service was not great. I ordered Beef Wellington, but the menu said it was medium rare, so I asked if they could make it medium. The waitress said yes. Well it came out mostly rare. When I caught her eye I said the steak was rare. She took it back,... More

I have been to this restaurant several times and it absolutely never disappoints. From the creative cocktail menu to the exquisite homemade ice cream our meal was fantastic from beginning to end. I enjoyed the scrambled eggs and fries which although sounds simple are to die for. My husband had the salmon which he also greatly enjoyed and I have... More

Had a lovely meal here last night with great service from a knowledgeable waiter giving us just the right amount of attention. Didn't feel either neglected or intruded on :) I had Henry's Soup a nice French Onion Soup and the Ricotta Ravioli with a really nice Italian Red. Would highly recommend and really perfect location in downtown area.

My husband and I are local and were in Boston for a weekend getaway and noticed this restaurant right near our hotel. We went early and sat upstairs near the windows so was not yet crowded. I loved the ambiance but is definately not your typical modern-restaurant experience - so if you are looking for contemporary and new this place... More

The food was delicious, especially the onion soup we got as an appetizer. My bone in pork chop was very tasty, though had a couple chewy bits of fat I wasn't expecting. My companion said that her tuna was also very good. Unfortunately the restaurant was far noisier than I would like for a nice dinner place - even though... More

We went for a late lunch on a beautiful afternoon in Boston. I hadn't been there in a number of years, and after reading a review in the Boston Globe decided to give it a try. Not much has changed. The wait staff is younger, but not necessarily better. The menu has changed. There is not a heavily Italian menu... More

Yours truly is always at a disadvantage in places, in Boston, that serve 'Italian' dishes. Misspelled words put me in a bad mood, and knowing what the original ossobuco or carpaccio (raw meat) look like, I need a lot of imagination to associate the Italian thing with what lands on the table. Then the recurring question: why do the locals... More

Marliave is definitely one of the better restaurants in Boston. If you have time for just a couple of meals in Boston, there are definitely better choices such as Yvonne's and Row 34. However, if you have more time to try out more places in Boston, you should not regret eating here. Food and service are better than good, but... More

I have been walking right past this restaurant for a couple of decades and finally stopped in for drinks one night on our way someplace else. What took me so long is the question. Like so many of Boston's best hidden gems it's tucked into an old building that has managed to keep its original bones. Still haven't been upstairs... More

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.
