The menu is quite limited. Their wine is over priced. The view of the river is very nice. Service left quite a bit to be desired. It was very hard to get the attention of the person serving you. Ate there because it was late and I had no time to go out of the hotel where I was staying.

“If you must eat in the hotel, it is OK”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Definitely not a destination restaurant given all the choices available within a 5 mile radius. Who puts obvious thickener in clam chowder in Boston? We live in Florida and that is all you can get there, but in Boston most places have good clam chowder...not here. Who makes dipping sauce for bread from sugar syrup? They do here. Uninspiring restaurant but tolerable if you are staying in the hotel.

“Great food, lovely view.”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Two terrific dinners here overlooking the Charles River with excellent service- well priced. Also able to sit outside and watch the rowing boats go by which is a bonus.

“Unexciting Menu options”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

I had lunch and there wasn't anything I wanted to order. When the food arrived it lacked flavor and the fries tasted as if fried in Old Oil. The staff lacked life. Room service was a little better. The staff was friendlier but maybe because they wanted an extra trip.

“Great breakfast”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We had breakfast at the Zephyr and were pleasantly surprised. My husband loves hash and has ordered it all over and stated that the hash here was the best, bar none. I had the Cranberry French Toast and was delighted. The portion was huge (actually too big) and well presented. The staff was very attentive and we lacked for nothing. They serve a buffet that looked great (plenty of people were taking advantage of it).
