$1 oysters from 4-6 daily, an excellent cocktail menu, and splurge-worthy entrees. Loved our table in the upstairs dining room.

While the dinner was wonderful, my husband and his friend both ordered the Beef Wellington, which was fabulous, BUT, that was all that was in the plate, they weren't told that no vegetable would be served with it at all, we all thought it was a bit odd, that while my friend and I we got a full meal, the beef wellington is all that you get....I think if it was served with just some greens, or any vegetable my husband would have liked the place more.

Despite being greeted by our server with "How are you gentlemen this evening?", my wife and I decided to chalk it up as an awkward start and move forward as we were meeting with friends we had not seen in a bit and were excited to try out a new local restaurant together. While our main dishes were across the board great, our server was constantly inattentive to our needs especially when he forgot to put in our appetizer order and we were continually waiting to place drink orders. He must've given up on us toward the end because our final interactions, including paying the bill, were with someone completely different. Hopefully this was a one off experience as the food was truly delightful but as far as first impressions go, this was not one that'd compel any of our party to return or recommend any time soon.

We had a concert at the Orpheum and I wanted to have dinner close by. Parked on Province St. Everything was close. The restaurant is old, been there for a while. Menu was eclectic. Many different choices. The clams were excellent. Beer good. Pasta excellent. Can't say anything bad about the food. Will go back there again.

Really cozy spot in old Boston with an old-school atmosphere. Food was all top notch. Beef Wellington was perfect. Chicken was tender, Brussel Sprouts were delicious. Excellent cocktail offering. A great place for a date or romantic evening.

Overall the place was nice. All the workers were friendly and the service was fast. The food looked amazing but it was all bland. The Sunday Gravy looked amazing but had no flavor, same with the potatoes au gratin. The beef Wellington said medium rare but it was borderline inedible. If the food had more seasoning I would have been happier. Will try a second time to try and give it a second chance.

My girlfriend and myself went here to celebrate Valentine's Day. The service was excellent, our waitress was very friendly and made fantastic food suggestions. We were impressed with the detail and flavor in all the dishes we ate and particularly enjoyed the scallops entree; my girlfriend thought it was one of the best dishes she'd eaten. All in all we had a great night and plan to eat here again!

Marliave has been on a slide of late. Their food is not what it used to be and as other diners have commented, the people shucking the oysters leave bits of shell and dirt in there, not so good at $3/piece. The silver dome reveal is always cute. Sad that the quality is dropping.
