Avenue One at the Hyatt Regency Boston Ratings and Reviews
Went for a Saturday evening dinner. Had a reservation and we were seated immediately - that was the last good service we had. It seemed they were extremely understaffed - dinner for 2 took 1 hr. 45 min. In addition some of the food was cold, so it clearly had been sitting a while.
Crab cakes were good but small - would have been better if not room temperature. Salmon sandwich was delicious. Unfortunately spinach salad had barely any dressing, a teaspoon of quinoa and was boring. Risotto was paste-like.
Will not be going back!
My daughter and I dined at Avenue One prior to attending a performance at the Opera House. Unfortunately, the service was quite slow and not very attentive. While bread plates were on the table, no bread was served. All food items that should have been served hot were lukewarm at best. We opted not to send the food back as the service was so slow that we didn't feel we had time for a correction despite being seated a few minutes prior to our 6:30pm reservation. As subscribers to Broadway in Boston, we are interested in finding convenient, new and interesting places to dine before the performances. Sadly, Avenue One, was a miss on all counts.
I'm going to put some of the blame on the timing: it was the Thursday before Easter/Marathon weekend and maybe the hotel had lots of extra guests ordering room service. But there were only two waiters for the whole room and both service and the kitchen were very slow. We were trying to get to a show at the Opera House, which the wait staff knew, and we barely made it in time and only because we paid the check right when our main courses arrived. The food itself was excellent with some nice imaginative choices, and the waiter was very nice (if over-busy), so we'll be back when we're not in as much of a rush.
This was a very reliable pre-theater meal. We were able to quickly order several good appetizers and wine in advance of the show. While it's not a gourmet meal, It certainly met our needs and exceeded our expectations. Further, the waitstaff is all very friendly and accommodating.
We've become pre-show regulars, the food is great ((lobster grilled cheese is to die for). Be seated before 6 and an appetizer or dessert is included free. Appetizers are excellent, from lobster and crab fondu to bison chilli to their signature clam chowder. Service is friendly and appropriately attentive. Overall, just a hidden gem.
Food was really great, unfortunately the service was terrible. We waited almost 45 minutes for our appetizer, were never asked if we wanted another drink, nor was bread ever offered to us despite other tables getting served a bread basket. The hostess and bus boys seemed to be the only ones hustling. Too bad, the food was great, but won't return due to the poor service and lack of concern about the poor service.
I was headed to the theater on a really, really cold day so I chose Avenue One (based on reviews) for the proximity to the Boston Opera House. It is a hotel restaurant and the atmosphere is typical of hotel restaurants. The food, however, was not. It was amazing and they try to use local ingredients. My mom and I had a wonderful lunch - my mom could not stop talking about the food she ate. I am on a slightly restricted diet and our server was very helpful. I will definitely go back there the next time I am in the area!
Note: they validate for the parking garage - $6 less than you'd pay on SpotHero or driving in off the street. Also, the garage and hotel are connected. The hotel is also connected to Macy's so in inclement weather, you don't have to go outside. Bonus!
My wife and I had dinner at the Hyatt Regency Boston to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We loved it! The place, the food, and the service were all excellent. We'd definitely recommend the Irish Nachos (huge plate to share!) and the Charcuterie Plate. To be fair, the Veggie Risotto wasn't the best we've tasted, but it was good enough. We'll certainly recommend the place to our friends.
We were really disappointed by our experience. We went for dinner during Dine out Boston. The menu looked nice, so we thought we would give it a shot. My Caesar salad was ok, but my wife's clam chowder was at most lukewarm and she did not like it. The entree was grilled beef medallions which looked nice as a presentation, but was extremely salty. My wife asked it medium rare, but they brought it TWICE medium. The deserts were mediocre. So do not waste your time, as there are lots of other options around.
We were staying at the Hyatt and decided to visit this restaurant. To be honest, we weren't expecting much from a hotel restaurant but the food here was exceptional! Everything from the cheese plate app to our dessert was so delicious. Even our two picky kids loved it and asked if we can eat here again. It's extremely clean and is very tastefully decorated.
We enjoyed a very nice Sunday Brunch with all the items you'd expect, including an Omlet, pancake and french toast station--The young woman in charge of this station was outstanding and certainly worked hard and was still polite and respectful--our server was also a hard worker and anticipated our need for coffee, and more water--and he , too, was polite and respectful--all in all a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning and a meal!
Good new find for pre theater dining on a snowy night. Parking below the hotel is validated (discounted), which is a perk. Attentive wait staff. Food is good and abundant. Nothing fancy, but good quality. Our dishes were split and they provided separate plates for each of us, which is generous and helpful. Would go back again.
Mediocre food, mediocre service.
I made a reservation to have dinner here (solo) because I figured it would be easy, I was staying at the attached hotel. When I showed up, there was noone at the hostess desk for over five minutes, during which time a line started to form behind me. Finally someone came over from the bar and tried to help us out, but "didn't want to mess anything up in the system". Eventually the hostess showed up seeming a bit confused, and seated me.
I ordered fairly quickly, a glass of wine and the vegetable risotto. It took probably 15 minutes for my wine to arrive, and about 30 minutes for the risotto (given the pre-fab feeling I got while eating it I don't think it was from the lengthy stirring that attends a risotto made at home), during which time the waiter never stopped by to check on me. I overheard another table being told that the kitchen was busy, although the restaurant did not appear to be overly full.
The risotto itself was very uninspired -- the right consistency but salty, with diced "seasonal" vegetables that I mostly couldn't identify. I did identify asparagus (which is not seasonal in winter) and mushrooms, but there were a lot of other things I couldn't tell what they were. I suspect that the granules of parmesan cheese sprinkled on top came from a green shaker can. While I was eating, the waiter never came by to ask if I needed anything.
All in all, the food was OK, but just OK. The service was inattentive at best. I had hoped at least that it would be relatively quick as I had plans for the evening, but alas that was not to be either. There are many other good restaurants within walking distance of the Hyatt Regency, next time it will be worth putting a coat on to go someplace with better food.
Food was fine. The sandwiches we ate were of high quality and different from typical chain fare. Service was rather slow, with our waiter bringing me sour cream and bacon for my baked potato when my request was for butter. In addition, after being served coffee we asked for a dessert menu which never arrived. The server made no mention of this when bringing the bill. The place was not crowded at dinner time but we will look at other options when going to a show in the area.
While the appetizers were great, two of us ordered the risotto and it was literally inedible. When we asked if it could be re-made with less garlic, we were told it was made in a big batch so we'd have to order something else. Garlic was so strong I have to believe that the batch was just made incorrectly. They were nice about it, but it was a big disappointment.
The entree tasted okay but it was not warm when it got to us. The molten cake was okay but we thought the cheesecake did not taste quite right. It was also interesting because the server brought out our dessert and left it on a table next to us as we were still working on our entree. Since I got the molten cake and it comes with ice cream, I had to watch the ice cream melt into a puddle by the time I finished my entree. The only thing I really enjoyed about this restaurant was the interior design. Overall I was pretty disappointed in the restaurant and would probably never come back or recommend it to a friend.
