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

We had last dined at Marliave more than thirty (yes, 30) years ago, but were pleased to find renewed charm in this grande dame at Downtown Crossing. The menu reminds that Mr. Marliave came to Boston from Paris in 1875, so 30 years pales in comparison to 140! I recalled Café Marliave as an Italian restaurant, which influence may have... More

After a long day walking the freedom trail, it was lovely to dine here. The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed seeing the sun go down on the patio. Cocktails were perfectly crafted. We had appetizers and then shared an entree and dessert. We are used to great food in Louisiana and we were not disappointed here.

A group of 20 met here for dinner. They have appetizers from $10 - $16. Entrees run $18 - $36 I had a pork chop that was approximately 1 1/2 inches thick, potatoes and asparagus. Everyone raved about their food. They never appeared to let a glass get empty regardless of the libation.

It was hot, too hot for Boston and, after visiting the Commons, we needed a place for lunch. We walked first in one direction then another direction in search of a real Boston restaurant and finally, while standing on a corner, we saw the sign. We walked in the back door; it was cool, dark and comfortable. Someone directed us... More

We visited this restaurant mid-July and had high hopes based upon the menu. The dining room is nice with a partial City view and contemporary design. It was a Wednesday evening and the tables were roughly 70% full. Our waiter was taking on much of the dining room and it clearly appeared under staffed that night. This showed in promptness... More

The atmosphere, food, and service was impeccable. The waiters revealed our plates with flourish from under silver domes. Highly recommend this dining experience

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

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.
