Everything we expected in a Boston staple restaurant. All the food options you could possibly want. The perfect location when doing to Boston tourist walk around. Our food and wine choices were excellent! Service was just right. Attentive but not intrusive. If you haven’t tried it, go. If you have been before, go again. Great food. Great value. Great fun.

The fish dish was excellent although on the pricey side...but it was free for me being a retired vet. Of course we tipped the attentive waiter on the regular prices on the menu. Both my husband and I are vets and we enjoyed the trip into Boston for the celebration of Vets Day. Thank you for offering the free entrees in honor of our service to this great country.

In the past we always went to the restaurant at Park Plaza in Boston. No comparison what so ever. Everything involved in our fiasco at Fanueil Hall was a total disaster. From the time we got seated and where we got seated was a catastrophe. Leading up to the meal? An epic mess. Service disastrous Wobbly table,almost spilled our drinks. whoops ! My spouse said The worst meal she had ever ate My dearest never complains in restaurants, this time she did. Oh the manager was very suave we will treat you better next year Hah hold your breath. My fellow veterans do not go to that place unless somebody is holding a gun to your head.

M&S. Is a good restaurant chain. They take care of Veterans which I thank them. I visit as many and as often as I can. However- today the meals where cool to cold. The staff /management just needs to pay a little more attention

The food is consistently wonderful here. The service is always outstanding. This visit was no different. Mussels, lobster bisque, and the tuna were our appetizer choices. Each was amazing but the tuna gets extra points for presentation and then yes, it tasted as good as it looked. We tried Parmesan crusted flounder and chicken. They were both cooked perfectly and the light seasoning was unique and flavorful. Even better were the pasta sides. Cooked the way past should be -firm no mush-and again delicious. And of course, there is location, location, location. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We chose this restaurant because of the reviews but we found it boring, ordinary and expensive. Our waiter was very nice but slow and kept us waiting. Our table wasn’t made up correctly and the table behind us was a catch all for extra salt/pepper shakers and silverware. The food was good, but it didn’t knock our socks off.

Dinner with friends. We eat at M&S restaurants a lot, although first time here. Food and service were fantastic. Daniel, our server, was friendly, attentive and professional. The calamari was well prepared and went fast. Lobster bisque was full of chunks of lobster and very tasty. We also enjoyed the stuffed salmon, new York strip steak and baked cod. All well prepared and delicious. Well worth a visit if you want great, fresh seafood.

One meal was barely edible, the other so full of bones it was not edible. The service was horrible and the restaurant and bathrooms were dirty. Never got bread and had to ask for water. Saw the waiter once to order and once for check. The bathrooms were as dirty as a truck stop.

Pleased when they were able to sit us early as we arrived before our reservation, not as pleased when it was a 15 minute wait before we even saw our waiter to take a drink order. However after that the waiter was attentive and there were no further issues on that front. The food was good, over priced for what it was, but good. Drinks are pricy but in line with the area.

Good food and ambience. Only problem is they always put us as a "no show" time after time so it is a hassle getting our open table points. We even made it clear we had an open table reservation this last time and put us as "no show" once again! Makes me wonder if something is going on like not wanting to pay the open table fee?

We were incredibly disappointed. How often do you go to a national steak house chain and have the waiter return after you place your order to inform you "We're out of strip steak?" Service was below average (the restaurant was almost empty). One plus -- the Makers Old Fashioned was pretty good.

Service was lacking. We were seated and although there were an abundant of serves we were not greased by any. After 15 minutes we approached the mattradie. For a fish establishment the fish taco was deep fried, calamari had carrots and artichokes (little wierd) the lobster rolls where filled with lettuce. Overall a very disappointing dinning experience

A little pricey for the quality of the food. I had a chicken dish and it was obvious that the chicken had been freezer burnt prior to cooking as the consistency was totally off. We ordered coconut shrimp for an appetizer and it was $13 for 4 shrimp. Luckily there were only four of us but it certainly should've been more. Two of us got cod dishes that were heavy with butter. The waitress was attentive but we were overall pretty disappointed.
