Only buffet available at the time of our stay. Many delicious choices at the breakfast and dinner buffets.

I ate here several times while staying in the hotel. Service was spotty overall and quality was not good. One morning I ordered the french toast which was honestly inedible, it was so poorly cooked. However, the server noticed I hadn't eaten it and took it off the bill, which was appropriate. Another time the eggs had shells in them.... More

We had a few drinks here after dining out in Boston and coming back to the hotel. Setting gives great view of Boston skyline. The Craft Beer selection is not great, but there is a full bar and wine options. Did not dine here, but does have full dinner menu.

This is now the only restaurant at this Hyatt hotel. On the 2nd floor, all seats have views of Boston and the Charles a River. However, select a window side table. I found the servers unusually honest and appreciated the service for that reason. For dessert, unfortunately, the churro so had been sold out. Of the other 3 items, our... More

The food at this restaurant is quite tasty. The serving size is however small. I would eat there again.

Here on a family trip with kids, we ate here a few times over our stay, we ordered pizza for take out then wanted to change it to sit in they said no, there where plenty of empty tables. Very disappointed with the service for the price you pay. We complained and said due to the high volume this weekend.... More

Nothing like sitting for a nice lunch looking over the Charles River. It was a little cold so we had to sit inside. Would definately return.

They have a pricey breakfast buffet, but the menu was decent enough. A bit over priced, but everything in the vicinity of MIT and Harvard will be overpriced. Nice enough, if you're staying at the hotel.

Good food and nice service. Located in the Hyatt Regency Hotel this is more a Bar than an actual restaurant. However, the food is really good and the service is friendly. Just the price level is pretty high and due to a mostly fully booked hotel the place can be crowded in the evenings, reservation recommended in case you want... More

The restaurant is part of the Hyatt on the river and the view is lovely. Rowers can be seen as you eat your breakfast. Several tables as well as a counter are available -- and some couch seating which seems a bit odd for breakfast -- but might make sense of cocktails later in the day. The buffet is pretty... More
