Excellent service!! I have some uncommon food allergies, and everyone was so attentive and responsive.
Oyster novice here, so the waitress offered a chef’s selection and we ended up with a great mix of flavors. Everything else was delicious as well. Highly recommend.
Brussels in the lobster roe pasta were out of place
First time and will definitely return. Having heard raves about Row 34, I booked here not realizing that it was the same team behind it. Phenomenal oysters - of course - great service, spirits and everything else was really top notch. Among the best meals I've ever had in BOS.
One of the best sea food places well beyond the Boston area. The oysters and fish never disappoint.
The night was running right on schedule so we were able to be seated upon arrival for our reservation without having to wait! (We were even given an option as to where we wanted to be seated, which is always nice.) The waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine selections. She had a great sense of humor and we left ICOB satisfied with the exceptional service and delicious food.
Perfect date, one of the best experiences in a very long time
The lobster roe noodles were extremely salty. Fish and chips were pretty bland. Drinks were good.
Quality seafood for fair prices.
Very limited menu options for dinner. A friend recommended several dishes which none were available.
We had marvelous oysters, superb salmon, and delisheous lobster noodles. Creative, authentic, and tasty presentations by excellent service.
I was impressed with the attentiveness of our server. She was very nice. Great service!
My husband and I went out for my birthday and had a wonderful evening. The food, drinks, and service were all excellent.
The service was a little slow but the food was very tasty
Fun place for seafood in a clean, modern setting. Excellent raw bar and food for meat lovers, too. Attentive and friendly staff. Bright and happy place for a good meal.
Fantastic celebratory lunch for our engagement! Always an exceptional meal and service at Island Creek!
It was a mellow New Year's Eve celebration but still a fun night out with friends. Food was delicious!
good good food very good
great restaurant! the food was fantastic. best biscuits ever.
Kayla our server was best ever . Icob never disappoints💜💜
We first ate at Island Creek Oyster Bar in the summer of 2012 and were delighted with everything. We have been dreaming of going back to Boston for another meal. Nothing was wrong, really, but the quality of the main dish I ordered did not reflect the premium price, in my opinion. We will go back, I am sure, but if we only get to Boston every six years, I might consider trying a new restaurant for dinner and hang out at the bar and eat oysters instead.
Food is consistently good, we had great service. The food is very fresh and always able to find parking.
My Montauk fluke was a tiny bit over-cooked but was overall excellent, and was a daily special. The place has great food, menu doesn't do it justice. Initially I had a "green" server and seems like someone figured it out soon - someone much more experienced server took over quickly - nothing said, appreciated! Great cocktails and ambiance also. Will definitely go back!
Server was excellent and provided solid recommendations.
the waiter was rude ... perhaps he had a bad day (?)
Food was excellent, wine list was limited.
The oyster selection was impressive. They only deal with oyster farmers they know and list which oysters came from what oyster provider. Service was little iffy at first, but as soon as I said something the manager stepped in and overall the visit was great. The food was fabulous. Needless to say, trying the oysters is a must!
Disappointing experience at what we thought was a highly regarded restaurant. Very slow service, poor and limited selection of items on menu. No oyster stew nor fried oyster dinner at an oyster bar!!! Very noisy.
Can't believe anyone gives this place positive reviews.
Sense of thought and smarts in the menu, and genuine care for the customers' experience. Hipper than anything comparable in New York City I can think of off hand.
Consistently amazing food. Great atmosphere. Friendly staff. I've only had good times here.
Ended up staying for dinner at the bar where wehad a cocktail before dinner. Bobby was our bartender and he was awesome! Great drinks and great food. Bobby made it a very fun evening.
First time in Boston and would like some seafoods. I saw yep review and it is among the top 3 popular restaurant. Foods quality is more than what I can expected. I ordered lobster roe pasta. It was so yummy and so many lobsters that I couldnt finished. My husband ordered salmon and it was so fresh and delicious too. Oysters has so many kinds and server is familiar with all of them and recommended few to us and we loved it very much too. Overall it was an excellent experience in Boston. I would def recommend to everyone.
Kind of expensive, but it's really nice for ocations . Great service
Food is very well prepared. Great lobster!
Awesome food and great service.
Snail like service...particularly/strangely drinks. Cocktails didn’t arrive for 10min after ordered, but the primary gripe is that waitress failed to offer us a second round until our entrees were served...and it didn’t arrive (a canned beer) until I had already finished my entree.
Good celebratory spot. We were concerned about the noise level in the entire restaurant, but we found a quieter table in a back corner. Pre-dinner drinks were delicious, but arrived very late. Oysters were outstanding (we tried 12 varieties!). Food is delicious but the wine list is odd and pricey. We settled on a $90 bottle of sparkling rose.
Very good service from Ryan and Patrick.
Absolutely love ICOB. Service is phenomenal and one of the biggest reasons I keep coming back. Obviously, some of the best seafood in Boston as well. I’ll keep coming here for special occasions and get togethers :)
Very professional service! Thanks for a nice dinner.
