The portions were extremely small. The quality was also poor. Can’t believe this was rated 4 out of 5 stars. Huge disappointment! Will never go back nor recommend.

The mussels were very good but about 5 of them weren’t really open but the fish was tasteless and the polenta fries were bland could be served with maybe a basil dipping sauce or a choice of dipping sauces . It is a great place for a drink

Usually very good.....food was very greasy last night. Server at the bar was wasn’t the best we’ve had by far, she seemed like she was doing us and others a favor. We love the Hyatt and the Harborside Grill....seemed a bit clunky on this most recent visit.

New Years Eve in years past here has been better. The menu was not broad enough this year and the staff was not as friendly as usual. In years past the wait staff handed out little hats, dimmed lights , and allowed access outside to get better photos of the fireworks, and were over all happier. This year was not as festive, wait staff seemed to be just getting by (new management?), and if you touched the door - you were getting yelled at (watched a couple get scolded).

The view was amazing while we dined and waited. The service was extremely slow, we were seated for a 6 o’clock reservation, it took forever to put our food order in, my husband had to flag a waitress down to get someone come over to us. We didn’t order appetizers only our main course and food for our kids and we chanced desert and we were there for 2 hours...and the restaurant was not busy at all. We dined early just so we didn’t catch the busy time of New Years Eve. Food was ok not the greatest meal we’ve ever had, but because of the views we would dine again for maybe a lunch.

The waitress seemed to rush us and didn’t appaear overly friendly. The wings were bland. The lamb as well. I had the salmon and it was just ok. For the cost of the food, it wasn’t worth it or the drive from the south shore.

Harborside Grill and patio offer Inspired cuisine and a striking view of the Boston Harbor. You can have signature selections prepared with fresh regional ingredients as you overlook Boston Harbor and the city from the comfort of the luxurious dining room at waterfront restaurant in Boston.

We booked in here for dinner to celebrate (quietly) a friend's birthday. The view across the river to Boston was stunning at night. We were served by a very efficient and helpful waiter (Andrew), and nothing was too much trouble for him. Once we had finished dinner he kindly allowed us to move tables to one of the fire pits with sofas where we had coffee and dessert. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good food with a fabulous view, especially on summer nights. We will definitely be back next time we visit Boston from Scotland.

I made a reservation for a birthday brunch on Sunday at noon after reading reviews that the brunch here was good. I wanted a nice waterfront location so this seemed perfect. When we got there we were told that brunch ended at 12. I was pretty shocked given that this was not mentioned online for the hotel and honestly, what Sunday brunch is EVER over at noon?

The manager offered us breakfast which was nice of them, but I have to say the only good thing about the restaurant is the view. The view is spectacular. The food was mediocre. While the wait staff were nice enough they were very slow and not very attentive. In fact I felt like somehow we were imposing on the restaurant by wanting to eat there. I had the lobster sliders. The rolls were toasted making them hard and the lobster had no taste. Just not good unfortunately. Everyone else said the food was just ok.

So I was pretty disappointed and I really wanted to like the place. Go for the view but if you are looking for a good meal go elsewhere.

We have dinner and breakfast once each summer at Harborside Grill en route from Logan Airport to Cape Cod, and enjoy the dining experience as much as we do our stay at Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor. The food is exceptional, as is the outside ambiance and view of the harbor. We especially appreciated the excellent and friendly service from each of our servers, especially Elizabeth M at breakfast.

It has a fantastic view of Boston Harbor. The menu is very limited with few meals available. Mostly apps. The food was good, great chowder. The bread is awesome! A little pricey. $5 parking with dining at the grill. Go to concierge for that after dining.

Went to watch Harbor fireworks on June 30, and it couldn't have been more fun. The patio was crowded, but our server Jewel was attentive and our party felt well taken care of. Last time, I didn't think to have the parking validated and it was Very Spendy. This time, it was $5! A big win. Thanks, Harborside Hyatt!

My kids and I took my husband to breakfast there for Father's Day yesterday morning. We were looking to go somewhere that had breakfast buffet with omelet and waffle stations. The menu description sounded great and listed omelet and waffle's made to order. As soon as we got there I knew something was wrong because the buffet area looked so small and weak with no chefs. Turns out that what they mean by that is not what I thought. You order your waffle and omelet by your server and they bring it out to your table. Considering it is called a buffet this was odd. I think they need to be more specific in the description. After placing our order for waffles and omelets we went up to the buffet. We were there at 11am and all the stations were empty. There were no plates, the scraps of the scrambled eggs were left only. The greek yogurt was out. Even the fruit that was set out was in a tiny bowl. We picked up our toast, and sides (from whatever was left) and went back to the table. After 20 minutes of waiting our orders came out. The waffles were about 4" in diameter, thoroughly disappointing! The eggs were small portions as well. Our server was dry at first and very hard to track down for things like ketchup and coffee, he warmed up in time for the check. There was a huge difference in my expectations of this place and what it was. I can't believe Hyatt would operate this way. I have to say it really spoiled our breakfast because all we could talk about was how bad the place was. We had to pay for parking but after validation it was only $5. Also, the buffet is advertised online as $25pp but they've raised the price to $26 and haven't updated their website.

My wife and I were staying in another airport hotel with mediocre food, so we walked along the Harbor walk to the Hyatt. It was a lovely evening around sunset, so we sat outside. There was a wedding party, which was festive but not too loud. We shared tacos with carne asada and arancini to start. Both were fine. My wife had a salmon filet as an entrée, which was quite tasty; my pappardelle with vegetables hit the spot. I had a well-mixed martini with a local gin, Wire Works, that the restaurant was featuring. I wouldn't make the trip across the Harbor just to eat in this restaurant, but if you're at the airport with time for a sit-down meal (and a 10-20 minute walk or shuttle ride from the terminals) and the weather is nice, I'd recommend it.

Fabulous View from across the harbor!

If you're looking for a different view of Boston, check this place out! It's spectacular!

It's a lovely restaurant with indoor or outside seating. Fun cocktails - my Blue Harbor, blueberry vodka and lemonade hit the spot on a hot day. I tried the Seared George's Bank Scallops with fruit de mar risotto, tomato fennel broth with mussels. It was out of this world delish! As was the Clam Chowder.

Service was attentive and friendly. They did not rush or intrude at all. The prices are conducive to any Boston restaurant and they have validated $5 parking in a huge lot. A definite place to take family, friends or visitors.
