Steakhouse
A creative nod to Fenway Hotel’s original architect, Herman Everett Wendell. To ‘hew’ also means to cut or chop.

Comprised of three show stopping elements, each identified with a slightly different rhythm. Discover our intimate parlor bar, showcasing an extensive whisky and Scotch collection inspired by Dunedin’s Scottish heritage. A lively lounge atmosphere is accentuated by water views.

Chophouse cuts and chef-driven seasonal preparations. Authentic and far from stuffy. This is the new neighborhood gathering spot.

Taking center stage is our chef’s dining bar affording front seat views of the hustle and bustle of a production kitchen. The interaction with our culinary team makes this the most sought after ticket.

An alfresco poolside option just adds to the allure.

I thought the food was excellent but the ambiance not so great. I expected the restaurant to be a little nicer. But it is loud; the lighting was bright, not dim like you would expect for dinner; and it seems more like a lunch place. But my filet was delicious and I highly recommend the Brussels sprouts. Lovely facility. Bar very cool.

We were looking for a nice special dinner for two, and were very disappointed. Will not go back. Entry up fairly steep front stairs which are difficult for me, impossible for handicapped. If there is an easier entry we were not directed to it. Extremely noisy so we could not hear ourselves talk (there are nothing but reflective surfaces - glass, floors, walls -- so sounds just bounce around - wretched.) Our server would be at home in Applebee's -- clean, but sloppily dressed, called me "dear"!!! and chatted excessively, complete with many personal details. We did not come to this expensive restaurant in order to form friendships with the wait staff. I had the hangar steak, which was tasty, but served on a cold plate, requested "medium" but it was bloody. The brocolini was tough (had to cut it with my steak knife) with a peculiar sauce which fought with the steak presentation. The dessert was cake - forget the name - which was dry, again with a most odd presentation. Little pomegranate pips burst in your mouth very bitter, not complementary to any other flavors, although the cream had a good flavor alone. Everything was very clean, although it was unpleasant to sit near the area where the dishes are kept after the tables are cleared. The whole experience felt pretentious and gauche, greatly overpriced for what it was. We did not try any wines or cocktails, so cannot comment. The initial greeters were very pleasant and appropriately friendly and efficient.

Our first time trying out the rooftop bar and restaurant. For a new restaurant they are doing a nice job. The food was quite delicious - could have been delivered hotter. Service was very good. The dining room feels a little casual for the price and style of food. However, very comfortable.

The place is gorgeous and all the food was delicious. The problem was that after we were done eating we waited a half hour for the waitress to remove the dirty dishes. By then it was too late for desert and coffee. The rest of the experience was great so we will be back😊

Service slow to begin with. Sat for 20 minutes before service was offered.
Restaurant not busy.
Waitress very friendly.
Had a cafeteria feel and atmosphere was a little cold. Lighting way too bright.
Coffee barely warm
All in all not a great first visit there but will go back and try the rooftop bar.

Still too new. The service was rough, forgotten drinks, food and coffee orders. Food was overall delicious except for the steak preparation. Three filets all ordered medium. One came out medium rare, one medium and one medium well. At $35 a steak this is absolutely unacceptable. It took so long to get the food and we already had forgotten orders, we didnt want to send it back. We were ready to move on. The ambiance was non existent in the dining room. It was reminiscent of a cheap hotel, not a Marriott Autograph Collection hotel. They are very new, now is the time to fine tune and up the level of service. I would go back in 2 months or so and try again. The roof top bar bar was great. Awesome drinks and view.

The food was fantastic. The beef tender, the salad delicious, the veggies cooked just right.
The service was befitting a middle priced establishment like Chili’s or Applebee’s. Not the kind of service you expect in a first class restaurant.
The hostess were sweet but once again not fitting for this type of restaurant
The noise level in the dining room
Was awful. Put up
Something to absorb the noises .

Very disappointed, the staff were wonderful particularly the Valet, but for a historic hotel it has absolutely no ambience. Other than vegetables the menu had no vegetarian options- didn’t even have a vegetarian soup. The salad was good, but way too much dressing- it should be served separately.

I expected more from a Marriott Autograph property. Only 4 tables were occipied when we were there for brunch and the room was so loud that two old friends who were hoping to catch up could barely hear each other. Food was expensive and tepid, few "brunchie" choices, and service was slow. Might have potential, but clearly not ready for primetime.

We went for Thanksgiving and enjoyed our dinner. The ambience is nice casual, comfortable setting. Our meals were delicious, turkey was juicy, sides of stuffing, cranberry, mashed potatoes were tasty. There is a decent selection of wines to fit most price points. Overall we enjoyed our meals, waitress Jessica was friendly and we look forward to going back to try other items on the menu.

We love the ‘new’ Fenway and the rooftop bar is awesome. The Thanksgiving dinner was good, but not really as spectacular as the price...I think the turkey dinner with all the sides and dessert was $70 per person. Everything was good but not very exciting except for the honey and harissa carrots. It’s early days so we’ll try dinner there again and see how it is after a few more months.

My wife and I were interested in trying out the new Fenway Hotel restaurant after it had been closed for many years. As former practitioners of Tai Chi, we had been afforded the opportunity to tour and review the building during its previous run-down state after the International Tai Chi organization had purchased it a few years ago. Therefore, we decided to combine a Thanksgiving Day dinner with recognition of our November wedding anniversary. Having previously visited restaurants for holiday meals in other areas and enjoying a less than satisfying experience, we were slightly dubious about this event, but our concerns were unwarranted. The service was outstanding, the food was excellent, and the ambiance quite satisfactory. Other's reviews may have indicated a noisy main dining area. We did not have that experience since after an effusive, warm greeting by the hostess, Laura, we were seated in one of the side dining facilities, which was quiet and delightful. Julia, our server, was very attentive to all of our needs and she even brought others to assist when our meal was served. The meal was turkey breast with all the trimmings, accompanied by a selection of desserts. Accordingly it was a non-standard menu. But the quality of our meal far surpassed any holiday meal we had ever experienced at any restaurant and most likely represents the standard menu. We heartily recommend this establishment for its food quality and service.

The Outside Bar was Great . The Chop House was very disappointing very loud like a cafeteria. It was only 1/3 full but it took a long time for apps . The food was good it would have been better if it wasn’t seasoned with a salt based seasoning way too much . The staff were not very welcoming and seemed to be put off when we mentioned the food was below our expectations

Fantastic flavors - the food was superb- the wine list was wonderful - waitress is new at serving and struggled to open the wine bottle for a good five minutes, after trying to find the manager to open the cabinet where the wine was kept. Then she spilled the wine on every attempt to pour it into a glass but everything else related to serving was spot on. Water glasses were filled frequently which is important to us. We are sure that once the rhythm and experience is established with this new restaurant it will be hard to get a reservation!

It took 10 minutes for the host to make a showing! The host should always be there to great the guests. I had a 7:00 reservation, got there 5 mins early and no one addressed us until 7:05. We were seated and we didn't see a server until 7:20. The server was attentive thereafter. The food was good and we thank you for the desert for our anniversary we were celebrating!

Perhaps this is part of the learning curve and we will try again before making full judgement!

We dined at Hew Nov 11, less than a month after it opened I believe.
Upon first sight, ambiance is completely lacking. There is a combination of faux white marble tables and dark faux wood. With the chairs, it looked like patio furniture. The table itself only had water glass and utensils, no tablecloth, flowers, or candles. I can see that for breakfast and lunch, but when I am paying $45 for my entree only, I expected more. Service seemed hit or miss. Ours was inexperienced and a miss. Never introduced herself, water glass empty over 10 minutes, brought the wrong wine, and charged me for both. At least I did notice and manager corrected it.
It is quite loud as there as nothing to absorb sound, so not good for a romantic evening.
I must say the food was very tasty. We had the pork belly and steak tartare appetizers. The steak tartare did not look appealing as it was small cut up pieces of steak, but was tender. For entrees, you do get choice of 1 side. No salad included. We had the wild boar chop and rack of lamb, with mac n cheese and brussel sprouts as sides. They were all very good.
They are off to a decent start, but lots of room for improvement if they want to be a fine dining chop house.
