Central Wharf Company Ratings and Reviews
I was in Boston for a night and went to dinner with colleagues at Central Wharf. I was very disappointed. I ordered the linguini with clams but they were out of clams so I settled for a buttermilk fried chicken dish but the chicken was not very crunchy and the mashed potatoes were cold. To top off the night, my colleague noticed a mouse scuffling about and we notified the waitress who said she would tell the manager. The manager never apologized to us and charged us our full bill even though I couldn’t finish my meal. I will definitely not be returning.
Not a good experience starting with being sent on a wild goose chase to the wrong location to find a hostess, up a second floor then sent back down to a different first floor location to find the right spot and still waited there a few minutes for a hostess to appear and seat us.
That was followed by a 45 minute wait for drinks and food that was mediocre at best. Everything we ordered was heavily breaded and fried including a Thai shrimp wrap. We had to scrape excess breading from the shrimp. Given an an almost complete lack of any sauce, not sure what made this a "Thai" wrap as opposed of a wrap of fried glop.
To add insult to insult to injury, Central Wharf reported to Open Table that we did not show up for our reservation. Wish we had been smart enough not to show up there. Won't happen again.
Food was good. The service was the worst ever experienced by this reviewer. Our server was incredibly distracted and walked away before complete order was placed. There were no refills on drinks (or offers for any other drinks). Order was slammed on table. Our server was having a bad day that sadly had to include us.
I reserved a table for a group of 12 for an office lunch last minute. They had 12 seats set up and did not have any problems getting seated. They gave us a good amount to figure out drinks and what we wanted to eat. Our server was super attentive and checked in on us the perfect amount of time. We had lunch on a rainy day so it was pretty quiet here. The food was fresh and I loved the clam chowder! I ordered the cod sandwich, which was light and crisp but could use a bit more lemon aioli. We all had a great sit-down meal together here and everything was great especially on this rainy day.
Food was good. Oysters were yummy. Lobster Mac &Cheese was more pasta cheese with lobster. Beer salad was ok. Lobster roll meal was good. Shrimp flatbread was fine but wasn't sure were the pesto was.
Scene was ok. Waitress was nice but often no where to be found. Only two stalls in the restroom, one was clogged and the other had no TP. At least the food was good.
The menu on open table is not accurate to the menu at the restaurant. The only vegetarian options at the restaurant are salads and 1 pizza. We went here expecting the menu that was advertised on open table which had many vegetarian options and were very disappointed and ended up leaving without ordering anything.
first bad review I've written because I was very disappointed since I booked for 10 workmates sight unseen based on the reviews and rating here and we were not happy. Service was very, very slow and not friendly. no real check ins for water or drinks and though we waited a very long time for entrees after apps, most items were cold (meaning they sat waiting for pick-up) and one item, originally forgotten, came out with the center completely cold/uncooked.
nachos had a whole top layer of burnt chips, and were generally eh, hummus platter the same, people said the chowder was good.
Overall the mediocre food and really slow service could have been overcome with a friendly and apologetic waitress who brought us more drinks before we had to flag her down.
first time in 20 years of business dinners I gave the minimum 15% - and she was lucky to get it.
too many other great places in Boston - would not recommend or go back.
The nachos were scrumptious and hearty. The eggplant and portobello mushroom sandwich was perfectly layered. The eggplant was well prepared (not mushy) and the balsamic was the perfect compliment to the vegetables. The atmosphere and service were excellent.
Waitstaff service was really slow despite the restaurant being very empty and we were the second table seated. Asked for bread and after waiting for a while, two slices arrived on a plate with no butter. I ordered the grilled octopus and it was so mushy (not grill tasting at all), I had to order a chicken salad wrap. I wasn't charged for the octopus. The French fries (although I asked for them to be left off my order) were very nice. My friend's cod sandwich was nice, but the accompanying salad was overdressed. We won't be going back.
We had a table by the door on a cold night and there was a private party upstairs so he had cold gusts of wind, loud music and it was so dim it was hard to read the menu. Food was ok but I would not make a special trip. If I wanted a meal and drinks near the financial district or Fanuel Hall then I would come back
I loved this place! We had our company holiday party here. There are only 12 of us, so a private room wasn't really necessary. We were concerned that we would be too loud with our large party playing games after dinner. The ambiance was perfect for a holiday get together and the menu wasn't overwhelming and had something for everyone!
Had a delicious lunch. As this was a business meeting, I appreciated the host seating us at a table in a quiet area. The menu was well-priced, which is especially important when someone else is picking up the tab! I would highly recommend Central Wharf Company for business lunches, and I plan to go back for non-business dining soon!
Overall it is a great spot and I would visit again. I went for dinner with to other friends and after we stayed for the Boston Plant Nite (I bought tickets online). It was a great venue for the event. The food was very good as well as the music. I can not believe I have never gone until that night. I do plan to go again soon.
The food was great but the service was lacking. My husband ordered chowder to start and it took quite a while to get it. He had only tasted it and the waitress brought our entrees.
Seriously?? I took mine since I didnt have an appetizer but we asked to have his held in the kitchen and kept warm.
The wait staff needs to know something like that should not happen!
