Diner Reviews
  • "Apparently a gem of Boston...my first time but the two I hosted had great experiences and were reminded to return. The food was fantastic and I had their signature Scrod, rolls and Boston Cream Pie. Just fantastic!!"

  • "So, why not? We had been to their brunch on a previous visit three years ago so knew what to expect. The hotel is very nice. They have good choices of cocktails and wines by the glass. But, the food is ordinary and overpriced. In that area of the city, just northeast of the Common, it isn't easy to find a good place on OpenTable. Chowder, iceberg wedge and french onion soup were all good. Schrod, branzini and scallops were all okay. No expectations, no disappointments. A lot of food, our party of four each split two servings of the Boston cream pie."

  • "If you go before 6:30 pm, there is a pre theatre menu of 3 courses for $38. We had the clam chowder which was excellent and served really hot the way soup should be. The steak portion was larger than the size indicated on the menu and cooked as requested. The service was excellent. Of course, we had Boston cream pie for dessert. The menu choices are perhaps considered old-fashioned by some but the food was excellent."

  • "Stopped in for lunch during Boston restaurant week. My salmon dish and my wife's pasta dish were very nice. The signature rolls were great and the slice of real Boston creme pie was fantastic."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "I was very disappointed in my meal. I had the baked schrod and it was tasteless and the vegetables with it had no seasoning or flavor whatsoever. My daughter had the salmon and it was a bit better but nothing exciting. The Parker house rolls and Boston cream pie were good and probably the reason we ate there in the first place."

  • "We came for Dine Out Boston on Monday, but unfortunately they weren't starting that menu until Tuesday. Our waitress, sensing our distress, let us order from the pre-theater menu, which was actually better than what was being offered through Dine Out. The food was delicious and the service attentive. The waitress overheard us toast to my boyfriend's birthday and brought him his own Boston cream pie to take home! I would definitely come back"

  • "room is dark and menu limited -- service was excellent and the spacing between tables was lovely -- allowing privacy and lack of interference. Food was good if unexciting -- precisely what i expected (hadn't been there in years). would go again with those who have difficulty hearing in bustling restaurants, or whose dining tastes are less than eclectic or daring."

  • "Boston's History at it's finest. The hand-carved coffered ceilings, crown molding, paneling….is exquisite!!! So rich, quiet, elegant beyond words! The Restaurant lives up to that with a wonderful menu with a great selection of entrees. Not to mention…The ORIGINAL PARKER HOUSE ROLLS!!!!!! Yummy! A MUST in Boston!"

  • "My girlfriend and I recently spent a weekend at the Omni Parker house and decided to dine at Parker's restaurant. We were treated to some of the best food that I've ever tasted in my entire life. I ordered the scallops and she got the osso bucco and both were delicious. My scallops were a little on the smaller side but she received about 2 pounds of pork so there was plenty to share. For dessert we had the boston cream pie (how could we not?) and it was excellent, albeit small to share and obviously had been made earlier and kept in the fridge waiting for someone to order. The rolls were amazing and they let us have as many as we wanted (I think we ate about 3 baskets...) Although pricey, totally worth it. Perfect for a special occasion."

  • "If you make reservations for Sunday Brunch, be sure that the buffet is open for your reservation. If not, you will have to order off the menu. The menu is fine, but the buffet is the reason to go. Also, good accommodations for gluten-free."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "High ceilings, dark wood panelling and chandeliers make this a smart and elegant dining choice. The service is very good but the food is only average. My filet mignon came out well done as opposed to medium as requested. Some quiet music in the background would be nice as othwise it is dead quiet."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The best part wasn't even the restaurant. It was Seamus, the concierge. What a wonderful man. The food was only okay. The parker house rolls are great, the boston cream pie is terrible. For having invented it, I expected waaaay more. My local bakery in Eastie does it better. The chowder has good flavor, but it is extremely thick. I couldnt even get through a cup. My boyfriend had the french onion soup, which he liked a lot. The service was TERRIBLE. So slow. We were one of 3 tables so I have no idea why. It took ages to get the check, or even to get a waiter to look at us so we could ask for the check. I highly doubt I will be back."

  • "The best annivsary dinner/ experience I've had in my 42 years of marriage. I had only put a two word note " our annivsary " in the reservation form. The staff at the Omni Parker House made a point to give us the special table that JFK and Jackie sat at., along with giving us the history ! The wait staff was so attentive ! The food was amazing ! The ambience was just what I needed.. Especially after all these years .....the wine was delightful enough so, that it called for another glass. To finish off the night we decided to try the famous Boston Creme Pie, it's a Must ! Then the waitress came with chocolate covered strawberrys just to say " Happy Anniversay " from the Parker House. We spent the night !"

  • "For past 2 years my wife & I have gone into Boston and stayed at the Omni Parker house as our Christmas Gift to each other. We dined at Parker's Restaurant last year and enjoyed it so much we dined there again this year. Upon arriving for our 7:00 reservation the Maitre D showed us to "table #40". He then went on to tell us that there had been a cancellation for this table and we were the lucky ones to be seated there. It was a lovely corner table. He told us the history of table #40. It was the table that JFK proposed to Jackie at. My wife and her family were big supporters of the Kennedy's so she was very excited to be sitting there. The service was 2nd to none and the food was amazing. Looking foward to going back next year!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "we spent the weekend at the hotel, and had our anniversary dinner in the restaurant the first evening. The staff was very attentive, and the food was perfect. We both order "Boston classic" dishes, and they didn't disappoint. Overall a great experience-"
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "We went because this was the famous home of the Boston Creme Pie dessert, but when we finally got it at our table it was bland, felt packaged, and not at all what we expected. It was just so-so, and we have had dessert at many restaurants from many different levels of fanciness, but this was probably one of the worst dessert choices we have had. We also had the chocolate mousse dessert and that one tasted like it had come from a grocery case as well. The Boston Baked scrod, known famously as well, was bland, a nice piece of fish, but really just ordinary. The butternut squash ravioli was really tasty, but for the price we paid for the whole meal, the meal was really just mediocre. We were disappointed."

  • "Serving American standards and its famous creations in high quality and style. May it never change."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "My husband and I stayed at the Parker House hotel and decided to try Parker's restaurant. We had the pre-theatre fixed price menu. The moment we stepped into the elegant restaurant, we were impressed. We got to sit at the table where John F Kennedy proposed to Jackie! Malcolm X was a bus boy there and Ho Chi Minh was a pastry chef in the kitchen, who knew? We had a charming and attentive waiter named Francesco. The food was delicious, Boston cream pie and Parker rolls lived up to their reputation. We will plan another meal there soon, and we will now recommend Parker's restaurant to my parents for their anniversary who are looking for a restaurant to replace the Oak Room which is no longer as it was."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "When the restaurant found out it was my girlfriend's birthday dinner, they sat us at table 40 which is where JFK proposed to Jackie Onassis! So right away we were pretty pleased with the service. The wait staff was very helpful, even took a few pictures for us to commemorate the evening. The food was fantastic! We ordered the Filet Mignon & Boston Schrod and both were very well prepared. Would highly recommend this wonderful restaurant!"

  • "My friend loved the hotel lobby and dining room. We were greeted, our coats were taken and we were not questioned when I wanted to wander around the lobby for a little while before sitting down. After a few minutes we returned to be seated and the table was not in a spot I wished to dine but the person who escorted us said that this was predetermined..although I sensed flexibility from him. My companion was happy with the table so, I accepted. Now the food. Several issues, some courses good (my friend loved her salmon, prepared exactly as she requested). Some not so good. She sent back her spinach salad which had not been warmed (and loved it once it was) My Baked Alaska was superb. Her Molten Chocolate Cake cold without whipped cream."

  • "My wife and I enjoy our dinner on the night before New Eve. The plates are well presented and the food is very good. I recommand the schrod (the fish is cook as it should be) and the filet mignon. We also took our breakfasts at the restaurant and I recommand the brunch in Sunday."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "The Parker House is a gem. The sense of history one feels upon entering is unique. The menu, too, is timeless (when was the last time YOU were served a salad with Russian dressing - ?!) and includes Parker House rolls, Boston Cream Pie (both of which originated at the restaurant), etc. The crab cakes were superb. The homemade corned beef hash, very good. Cranberry/Apple crisp for dessert - delicious! Coffee flows non-stop (though it was almost lukewarm, alas), and the wait staff is friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable about the history of the place, etc. Best thing about the Parker House: beautiful, classic interior. An elegant joint!"
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "Service was very good. Easy going pace that allowed for a relaxed meal. Only issue I had was a wine selected was not what was delivered to the table and had to select another. It would have been better if they just said they were out and what they brought to the table was the " right" wine."

  • "My wife and I often travel to Boston to have a mid-week dinner at Parker's. Parker's represents all that is 'old Boston': quiet environment, fantastic service, romantic setting and an excellent dinner menu; all set in a hand-carved wood paneled dining room that is steeped in history. I would recommend their 'pre-theatre' selections that are priced reasonably ( 3 courses for $38). I normally have the salmon. The drinks are reasonably priced for city dining. At times, we have gone for just appetizers and dessert. We still enjoyed the same great experience."

    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "compared with the last visit the menu is very dull. The restaurant was not very busy so the service was good and friendly. The osso buco needed more time in the oven and the risotto was not the best I have tasted. The scallops were good but scarce, the cesar salad was excellent."

  • "Our family enjoyed their Thanksgiving celebration at The Omni Parker House. If you are looking for a place to enjoy good food as well as a great evening with company, this is it! The waiters and waitresses were wonderful and made our family dinner one to remember!"

  • "Great to find some foods not easily available elsewhere, such as foie gras, beef tartare, and tripe. Scallop entree was gluten free! Still the best scrod in town. Tables not crowded. You can have a conversation. Waiters most attentive."
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "Read about the restaurant and the amazing history and decided it was a must. The history is cool, but that's about it. The waiter was extremely nice but we waited a long time to even order. The food was ok, we had the schrod and the scallops. It was not very flavorful and we didn't finish out meal. The best part was the French onion soup and the shrimp cocktail. We also tried the Parker house rolls- they were good but couldn't carry the rest of the meal. Finally we tried the original Boston Cream Pie. It was ok, but tasted very prremade. I'm glad we tried the restaurant because of the history, but I wouldn't recommend if looking for a great meal."
