This is another of those restaurants that prove the adage that you can't get everything -- a great view AND great food and service. This has a nice view of the harbor, although it's a narrow passageway that it looks out on, not the main channel. The service is generally really good. The menu is quite limited - best bet is stick to the kobe sliders and the Mac & Cheese. On weekends there is a build your own breakfast burrito menu and a pour and make your own bloody mary bar. Efficient free (tips only) valet round out the experience.

Stopped by 3 Thirty 3 for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. It was a beautiful day out, and eat in the resturant with the nice view of the Newport Back Bay.

We were at our table for at least 20 minutes and still no sign of the waitstaff. Tables that were seated after us were waited on, and still no one to take our drink order. We finally went to the hostess table and asked if she could send someone over. You would think we were asking for her to take the order, cook the food, serve it and wash the dishes.

The waitress finally came over, she was rude and short. We saw her a total of three times. Once to take the order, once to ask if we wanted dessert and once to drop off the bill.

The only three things that saved this lunch were, the busboys, the good food, and the incredible view. We appreciated the bus boys so much, left them a nice tip. As for the waitress, well, she got a $1.00 for her time.

I have been to this resturant several times, but after this visit, never again. They are not the only game in town and I would rather give my business to a resturant and waitstaff who truly wants it.

I even emailed the resturant to share our experience, as of to date, still no response. I guess that should give you a good indication of how they feel about their customers.

It is obvious this place exists for it's over 40 bar scene, not for the food. I found the food to be mediocre, and the service poor.

Loved this place!! The atmosphere was amazing, with a nice view. Tables are set up with a lounge area. Nice bar, excellent drinks and bartenders! Can't comment on the food, but this was a great place to hang out. On a Wednesday night, it was even happening!

Very good food and looked like a potential hangout on Friday and Saturday. I thought it was good.
