Avenue One at the Hyatt Regency Boston Ratings and Reviews
Avenue One is a pleasant surprise: Upscale dining with reasonable prices in a refreshing, relaxing setting, with friendly, helpful waitstaff. The menu has enough variety to please everyone in your party. The White Bean and Tomato soup was both healthy and hearty. The Roasted Shrimp dish is under the Share section of the menu but proved to be perfect as an entree, especially when paired with a side order of the seasonal vegetables, which was broccolini the night we were there. In addition to the delicious food, our party especially appreciated the quiet ambiance - -we could carry on a conversation without having to raise our voices.
I chose Avenue One to use points that were about to expire from my airline membership. It was far better than expected from the time we arrived till we left. Service was flawless; a very professional server and food was outstanding. we were able to sit and enjoy without being rushed. It was a fabulous evening and I do plan to return.
Food was poor. The haddock tasted as if it had been frozen for quite a while and was very dry.
Martinis good. Service was good. Restaurant and bar were not crowded and the atmosphere was not inspiring. Close to Opera House/Theatre District and offers discounted parking.
A large group from my office went to Avenue One this afternoon for restaurant week. At first it was completely empty (11:30AM), and by the time we left, it was totally packed! The service was excellent throughout, and we never had any problems. Everyone was very courteous and no one had any problems with their food or order. The food was all delicious and more than worth the Restaurant Week prices. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to large groups, particularly office groups that may need to get in and out quickly.
My waiter was engaging and courteous. I had the New England clam chowder which was pretty good but felt a little too salty half way through. The steak and frites were cooked medium rare as ordered. The place was quite at around 1:30 which suits me perfectly. However the whole experience was ruined at the end when the waiter could not work through the system to redeem my points for the meal. He and this other staff also spent over 10 minutes working with the cash register with the same thing for the guests at this other table who was ahead of me. This meant that I waited at least 10 minutes between the waiter dropped the bill on my table and picked it up again and then I waited for another 10 to 15 minutes until I told the waiter that I have to leave for work. I paid cash for the tax and tips and leave the waiter to figure out the points for my meal.
The system they use to redeem points seem to be very particular about certain data but was not clear about what it needs. There was no one staff in the restaurant at the time knew how to do this thus I fault the management for this unpleasant experience which was very pleasant to begin with.
Our waiter was very attentive and took time to be sure that we had plenty of time to get to the show. The bar is located separate from the dining area so if it had been loud, it wouldn't have affected us. My son had fish and chips, which he demolished, and I enjoyed the (small) crab cakes and a salad. I neglected to present my Broadway in Boston card until after my bill was printed, but our server graciously redid the bill to accommodate the discount. Easy in/Easy out. We were glad that we stopped by.
We were going to an 8pm show and had a reservation for 6pm, 5 adults and 3 children. Ordered the calamari and chicken satay as appetizers. They were very good. We ordred dinnet at 7, thats when it went down hill. Some of the dinners came out by 730, one other came at 740 and they either never recieved the last 2 orders or they overlooked preparing them. Needless to say several members of our party were not happy. We kept inquiring on the status of our meals and were told, 5 more minutes. The staff tried to appease us with an order of calamari to go, but that is not something you would bring to the theater. I would go again, but when with children this time after a matinee.
It's not the experience was horrible, it was just very average. There are plenty of average dining opportunities, I try to find something of distinction to bring me back to a new restaurant, and I can't find anything of distinction that would entice me to return.
I went to Gather after visiting the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), which is a short walk from the restaurant. The restaurant is not large but also was not crowded at 2:00 on a Saturday afternoon. The lobster roll was perfect--not dressed in mayo, but pure, tender lobster in a brioche roll. Our server was attentive without being intrusive while we ate and was helpful in our lunch selection. I will definitely return.
Our group of 4 dined here after the theater. We had 5pm reservations and restaurant was empty. Waiters hovered over us and when we asked to just enjoy drinks before ordering they checked back in on us twice - it was very annoying. However, the food was outstanding.
This experience is a good example why and was a bit disappointing. Initially seated close to bar area and with open design the sound really is amplified. Reseated but hostess seemed perplexed that we asked. Then some confusion among wait staff as to who had our table. Food was enjoyable however they did not have the bottle of wine we requested from their wine list. It was convenient after a day of traveling as we were staying at the hotel but this experience just feeds into our hesitancy to dine at hotel restaurants.
Great location for parking for events at the Boston Opera House. The restaurant week selections for dinner were wonderful. There were several options to chose from and each one was as good as the next. The servers and staff were professional and friendly. I know I will be back and will refer friends there.
We decided to try Avenue One because it is steps away from the Boston Opera House. Our waitress was very diligent to get us to order our food so we had time to enjoy it and the wine selection. The food was plentiful and delicious. We even had time for dessert and I'm glad we did...the Boston Creme Pie was spectacular!! I look forward to returning for future dinners before shows!
