    The meal was great. Delicious and the ambiance can’t be beat. One server ( not assigned to our table) offered to move the umbrella as I can’t be in the sun, and was most gracious to think of us! Our server was good but when I went to pay I had some gift cards purchased from PapaRazzi that she insisted was not part of the Newport Group. I have the app and showed her they were still listed and she said she would try to use them. She came back and said they did not work and wasn’t sure if Paparazzi even existed anymore. I told her there was one on Wellesley, where I’m from and she again said they were no longer part of Newport Group. I paid by credit card. When I got home, I contacted Newport Group and they replied immediately that the gift cards should have been taken and Papa Razzi was still very much part of group. Granted, they were purchased pre covid but I feel our waitress should have checked with a manager or helped get me the correct answer. It tarnished an otherwise lovely meal.

    Service was friendly. Wait staff very attentive and accommodating. Meals promptly served. Portions a bit lacking considering the up-pricing since last visit and pricing not commiserate with other restaurants in the area. Inflation adjustment appears to be over 25% on most items.

    Amazing! Went for my birthday for lunch. Everything was perfect, from the front door to our perfect table. Server was attentive and did not rush us through any part of our lunch. Food was the best I’ve had anywhere by far. Topped off with a complimentary dessert with a candle. Dessert was delicious. I really can’t thank the Boathouse enough for making this birthday so special.

    We frequent the Boathouse often. Unfortunately last evening we had a poor experience with management. We had reservations for 4 at 7:30p and was seated at 7:35p which was fine. Our waitress Amelia was wonderful. She took our order immediately but we did not receive our dinner until 8:50. Amelia was more than embarrassed and kept apologizing for the delay. It would of been more appropriate that the manager come to the table to explain the delay. This shouldn’t be put on the waitress!! In the end they took off the one salad and one soup we ordered and said it was for the delay. That was appreciated but putting a more personal touch during the hour and 15 minute wait and keeping us updated would of been better customer service. I hope this review will improve management etiquette to this great restaurant. We will definitely return since this can happen. Thank you.

    It was a beautiful day, and we were seated on the covered porch with a fine view of the water. Service was friendly, with special kudos to Holly for being knowledgeable and helpful. The food was beautifully prepared and plated and was all delicious. Our children surprised us, having found out where we were eating, they arranged for a fancy dessert and for them to pick up the charges for the meal (combination celebration of Father's Day and a birthday). The restaurant kept it a secret and pulled it off mischievously and masterfully. We'll be back, for sure!!

    Last minute grabbed available reservation for Father’s Day dinner for husband. He loved his veal and said it was it was perfectly cooked. I ordered paella but it came out lukewarm so they brought it back where it was redone- took 10 (?) min so husband ate while I waited. While hot the second time round, rice was not crisp at bottom and dish was overly salty. Just ok. Nice they comped my drink (thanks) but wish I’d have enjoyed the entree more - not up the usual BH experience for me.

    Very good food, with somewhat slow service, in an attractive atmosphere with great views. Very high ceilings and lots of open air dining spots make this especially nice during any kind of flu season. I always have the lobster roll which never fails to please.

    Outstanding service Nice variety of dinner choices. To begin we chose the mussels —-outstanding, and the calamari of course, so tasty!! Our dinner choices were delicious,, well prepared, and on time! Waitstaff was very attentive, professional, also very welcoming. We chose to dine outdoors on the patio in spite of the chilly weather. How can you resist that beautiful view of the sunset over the bay!
