The view, the sunset, the lights on the waterfront make this a wonderful location for dinner or a drink. We found the Za'atar Chicken and Salmon delicious. The lobster roll and clam chowder very good. The fish and chips was OK, at best. The cheese cake and sorbet good. Sadly the grilled peach dessert , which sounds like a warm peach cobbler, was not. The peaches were not ripe, it was cold, and not tasty. All in all, a very good evening with excellent wait staff delivering to food quickly and quietly, turning on the fire table just as the lights of Boston begin to sparkle. Thank you for such a memorable evening.

Very limited menu, no lunch at all in the restaurant. The meals were not very tasty. We expect more of a menu on the waterfront and in such a nice hotel. Not impressed.

The ambience was great ! I would definitely give 5 stars for the ambience, but probably not for the food or service.
As others mentioned, the restaurant was pretty understaffed -- one waitress was serving about 5-6 tables. Our waitress was not too friendly, but not unfriendly, just okay.
Regarding food -- while we got our clam chowder (as an appetizer) almost immediately after placing the order, it took 40 minutes to get our entrées served. I got the steak-frites and my friend got the crispy chicken sandwich. The food tasted mediocre -- what was slightly disappointing was that I asked for a medium steak but it came pretty well-done. But because I waited too long I didn't send it back, and it was pretty tender for a well-done steak.
I guess this is a good place to grab food for those who are staying at the hotel or those who are willing to pay $30 for a meal for the ambience and to enjoy the harbor-view. But otherwise I don't think, as a visitor, I would return.

The food was very poor.
calamari was way too salted, my fish was over cooked, the pizza looked and tasted like it was reheated.

Wonderful view of Boston skyline and harbor. Schedule your dinner at the right time and you can see an amazing sunset. Food was quite good, but not great. I worried about the noise of the airport nearby but we heard one small plane take off the entire time. I will go there again!

Absolutely the best view of Boston skyline and harbor in the entire city! Tables outside, right by walk and bike path, with a few fire pits and comfy chairs or high tables. The waitstaff was exeptional, from the host at the reception area to our server (awesome) and kind and helpful bussers. We felt well taken care of and completely relaxed for a few wonderful hours. The menu had enough variety with 3-4 items in each category: appetizers, soup and salads; sandwiches; and a few entrees - plenty of choice but not overwhelming. We ended up sharing Buffalo brussel sprouts (delicious!) and two flatbread pizzas - the roasted pear, arugula and balsamic drizzle was exceptional. Highly recommend!

Harborside Grill is a beautiful location to overlook the Boston skyline. Our waiter Andrew was phenomenal and very personable. We were disappointed that all outdoor seating was taken (come early since it's first come first serve), and he worked with us to make sure we could get outside for drinks as the sun set. Although the menu is a bit limited and the prices on the higher side, the food was very tasty. We especially loved the popovers as an appetizer. Overall, great restaurant and amazing service!

Took my 3 year old son on a very spontaneous “date” on the end of a very rainy Memorial Day weekend.

I noted that I would have a child and that we could be stuck in a corner, as long as we could see out the window on my open table reservation. (I was probably more nervous about this than the waitstaff 😂.) It was my first time taking him to a nice restaurant alone.

My son LOVED the hotel. He’s obsessed with stars, the city, airplanes and playing ‘I spy’, so I thought it would be a hit. There’s so much to look at that we didn’t need to break out YouTube.

The entire staff could not have been nicer to us. Sarah, Vinnie and the other dark haired gentleman server were amazing to my son and I. They gave him a toy soldier as soon as we sat down. There was already a kids menu at the table. As much as this restaurant is not typically geared towards kids (rightfully so!), they made accommodations for us, and it made for a really sweet and memorable time.

I had an awesome salmon dish and he had delicious Mac and cheese.

Food was average. Unless you are sitting outside which we couldn’t due to rain, the ambience is more like train station. Service is great.. the saving grace.

The Chicken pot pie is AMAZING! Definitely order this if you come here. The outdoor seating is peaceful, the views are gorgeous, and it's a great place to take pictures. I recommend outdoor seating if it's available. However, we had a 7:30 pm reservation and there were a lot of bugs since you are close to the water so just be aware of that.

Food was great and came quickly. Couldn’t beat the view. It was a little sad how empty it was, but that’s not the restaurants’ fault. Perfect hidden gem for safe COVID dining.

There were only 3 visible staff members but they were all fabulous and working so well together.
