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.

OK for a hotel restaurant with limited selection. Eveything was pretty good, but nothing exceptional, save for service.

Wonderful view of the harbour. Otherwise bland and ordinary. Restaurant has to be all-day cafe, bar, lunch spot, and dinner restaurant, and since it is open to the hotel lobby as well, it has zero atmosphere. Rooms are comfortable but very plain at the high price.

The food was mediocre and the service was poor. The staff were very unfriendly. The prices, especially drinks, were very high for the limited and quality of food on the menu. The view was great but they wouldn’t seat outside. Not impressed.

We got married here 17 years ago and often come back to dine on our anniversary. We like to eat outside as it is lovely to watch the city light up as the sun goes down. We enjoy watching the scene - people come and go, some with dogs, some are jogging, some with luggage. The seating outside is comfy with firepit tables. Our order got a little bit delayed and the manager and waitstaff were very courteous and accommodating - the manager comped dessert and sparkling wine since it was our anniversary, and even comped parking. We will clearly return, as we have done several times since our wedding day. The food is excellent and the ambience is too. It is a secret gem at the airport!

My daughter and son-in -law took me for Mother's Day dinner. The view of the Harbor was perfect!Skyline view of Boston wonderful. Food was good but needed some vegetarian choices other than a salad. We had to order lobster mac and cheese without the lobster for my vegetarian daughter and son-in -law.Staff was very nice and accomodating. Lovely patio with little fire pit at each outdoor table. Would highly recommend for special event or date.

The staff was incredibly helpful in meeting and seeing our foreign guests through the lobby up to the converted ballroom for a business lunch. Construction initially was noisy, but the outcome will be terrific. THere was a wonderful time allowed for our meeting and meal at one of the tables. Andrew in the dining area was the best server I have ever had. Our German guests will never forget this US hospitality and New England seafood!
Keep up the good work!

We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated right away. The server came over shortly thereafter and arrived with coffee, but it took quite a while for the tea to arrive.

The food at the buffet was typical of a breakfast buffet; however, not very hot. The strawberry jelly was delicious as was the bacon.

We ordered omelets, pancakes, French toast and waffles. It was all good. That said, I expected some additional offerings.

Regardless, the best thing is the view.

I booked this reservation for a birthday lunch for my sister and family. We had an awesome server who took good care of us and a great outside table. Some of us had the buffet and ordered french toast and waffles. The only negative of the whole experience was that they were getting cold when delivered.

I would definitely come there again. You have a great location and setup for a memorable dining experience. We enjoyed walking out to Jeffries Point after lunch.

The hostess did not know if they could take our reservation even though it was confirmed. Then she sat us. Then the table and menus were sticky and seating was low and table was high. Busy and noisy and some party in ballroom that spilled over. If there were other restaurants close we would have went.

We returned to the Hyatt for dinner and drinks as a yearly tradition because we love the beautiful view and atmosphere. Much to our disappointment, the hostess was unfriendly and acted rudely inconvenienced to check for any patio availability, despite having a reservation. After being seated, we quickly realized that our waitress was also notably unfriendly and would ask a question and walk away before we had the chance to say "yes we're ready to order". Overall, the view is worth a return trip but I cannot say many good things about the service.

We had a beautiful evening celebrating my niece's birthday. It was highlighted by the Fireworks show we were able to enjoy! The waitress was very good, however, it seemed to take a long time for our dinner to arrive, which consisted of two salads, cheeseburger and chicken. Also, there appeared to be some confusion when we checked in with the Hostess with a reservation as to whether there was any seating available for us. All in all, we had a wonderful evening.

Go for the view of Boston, but try the seafood. The chef knows how to correctly prepare seafood--the fish & chips, scallops and halibut were all great. And dine while watching the sun set over Boston..

We were on time for our reservation and given the choice of a fire pit table or a high top. We chose the fire pit. A comfortable couch in front of a fire with the Boston harbor in front of us. Does it get any better? Our waiter was great. The food was good. Very nice drink list. We were there for 2 hours and never rushed out. We are looking forward to doing it Shaun

This dinner was a special occasion because my family was in town visiting. We chose it for the ambiance and view of the water and city lights, but also wanted to treat them to good seafood. The menu was extremely small, none of the appetizers were large enough to share (and were pretty pricey), and the food was flavorless. We noticed the menu said they try to practice portion control and stick to daily calorie values, so perhaps they cut down on sodium and spices but we all ordered different things and no one was wow-ed... the waiter barely came by, we had empty water glasses half of the meal, no silverware sets for so long we had to eat with our hands for a while, and the area was basically empty. Not enough tables were filled to be ignored like that. Not pleased. Will not be back unless maybe for drinks only.

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.
