Very cool and popular restaurant in Boston. So happy we had a reservation because the place was packed. The menu changes every day and the seafood was very fresh. Many different options of oysters to order with a great presentation. Nice wine list, great seafood selection and good variety of desserts. Server was attentive and knowledgeable. Will definitely return the next time we visit Boston.

We booked a 4:30 table, to make it for the first Fenway pitch. A good idea, since this restaurant's great food has made it popular and crowded. This was our 3rd wonderful meal experience here. Terrific seafood, served by a friendly, knowledgeable waitstaff. Ambiance is 'Boston maritime' complete with an entire wall of genuine oyster shells! Lively bar scene, good music & great wine selection! And lots of oysters! (did I mention the wall...?) Clearly a rising star (5 of 'em) in Boston!

This restaurant is owned at least in part by oyster purveyors, so if you are an oyster lover, you will find an assortment here, with information on their origins. Located at the Commonwealth Hotel, this is not your usual hotel restaurant but elegant in its contemporary simplicity - grey and white with weathered wood surfaces, glass and tiny white lights. I had the best fish sandwich I've ever had - FRESH-and the bun soft and fluffy meltaway. Service was excellent.

I have now been here twice - once for dinner and once for brunch. All of the food is fresh and delicious. If you are an oyster fan, you will want to come here. The variety of oysters is great, but the Island Creek signature oysters are my favorite by far.

Food was par excellence of course. But what I really loved was the depth of knowledge our waiter had of the wine list and local seafood. Wine list was equally extensive and impressive with a range of old and new world wines. The only down side is that our mains took over an hour and they had the music cranked a bit loud. Otherwise a boston highlight.
