Amazing restaurant. Lush food - highly recommend
We had a wonderful waitress very attentive food was amazing great wine and fab desserts
Oysters are amazing, 14 different types. Other foods are good only
Oysters, NE clam chowder, and scallops were delicious. My wife thought the black bass was a bit salty, but otherwise fine. The complementary bread and butter was quite good too.
The portion size was fine for us (we're not big eaters), but I think hungry people might find it on the skimpy side, especially given the price (>$30 for an entree).
Superb as has been the case every time we go to Island Creek
Service was very slow. Had to wait nearly an hour for our 7 pm reservation. Still even after that, no wait staff came to get our drink orders till we begged the hostess. Food was decent but high priced.
I took my niece out to dinner here and we loved it. Excellent oysters and seafood. We'll be back!
Great drinks, great food, great vibe and great company all made for an awesome evening!
The server seemed like they were having a bad night unfortunately
Went here for a date. Food was great. The timing of the courses and drinks was very disconnected. Raw bar items came very fast, hot appetizers lagged and essentially came just before our entrees. Overall it was fine and the quality of the food and ambiance trumped the timing disconnects.
Island creek always provides an incredible meal with amazing service. They’re servers are extremely knowledgeable of the menu especially the oysters. I’m never disappointed by my time spent there.
Excellent food and great service. The clam chowder and lobster pasta were amazing.
The wine list is AMAZING! The wines are interesting and well curated, and the wait staff knowledgeable, friendly and helpful! Their recommendations were spot on and paired very nicely with the wide range of very delicious seafood. Specials thanks to Michele our server and Lindsay the wine director for making our experience so enjoyable and memorable!
This is one of my favorite restaurants, and it devastates me that I no longer live close enough to go regularly. The food is always fresh and delicious. The service is always great and the staff are attentive, but they are definitely on the slower-paced side.
Waitress was very knowledgeable about the oysters.
The food and service were amazing! The seafood was really fresh and delicious! I have a couple of dietary restrictions and our server was lovely and willing to help.
Fantastic oysters and amazing seafood dishes!
Really good quality oysters. Great service and ambience.
Went for Saturday lunch ahead of afternoon Sox game. Hostess was unpleasant and perfunctory, does it cost more to get a smile? Place was mostly empty and she wanted to sit us on top of large party, at a cramped corner table. We demurred and sat a table away, out of corner and she beat a hasty retreat, bah bye. Our server was great and had good knowledge of oyster selection and was refreshing after hostess snub job. Oysters were fresh and tasty, a little more expensive than, other venues ( Summer Shack for ex.). Limited lunch fare menu, but adequate enough and food was good and timely, lobster roll really good. Bathroom was in adjoining hotel and through exit door and up flight of stairs, not so bad but a little inconvenient. Good location relative to Fenway, but perhaps a little too upscale for casual pre- game lunch, better for more formal occasions, perhaps?
We love the oysters here. Waitress was terrific, apologizing for the way-too-slow bartenders. Drinks are small, too. Too small for the $13/each price.
Island Creek continues to deliver quality seafood in a lovely setting. The bar area is lively and has a nice vibe. We prefer sitting in the back where conversation is easier. The fried oyster sliders are served on a soft roll with pickled onion and a tasty remoulade like sauce. One of these with a few large, perfect shrimp & the half lobster are my perfect meal. My husband agrees ( had two sliders and 5 shrimp. Our friend had striped bass and gave it a big thumbs up. Don’t miss the banafee pie, a deliciously light riff on banana cream pie. If you like mint chocolate chip ice cream, this is the one by which all others pale. The fresh mint flavor is heaven. Our server,Michelle, was attentive and knowledgeable. It is clear she enjoys her job and just added to our enjoyment of the evening. The women who greeted and seated us were friendly,efficient and welcoming.
Recommended by a friend. Food was outstanding and service was superb. We will definitely return!
First time to Boston. Decided to take a recommendation from a sales clerk at Valentino and dine here after a baseball game. I tried oysters for the first time. Great place!
Good food and service. Good location. A bit pricey for what it is.
Falls within the category of "dining experience". Everything about the meal was apparent that the chefs and staff take pride in their products.
The majority of the menu is locally sourced and all was expertly prepared. The oysters were phenomenal - delicious and fresh. The scallops were rich and succulent. Even the Colorado angus burger was amazing. And the Boston cream doughnuts were decadent.
I hope to be able to visit again.
Really good place for outstanding food. Waitstaff was very good but not outstanding. Atmosphere was very good. Would definitely recommend this place!
Oysters good, nothing else positive worth commenting on. Row 34 is a far better choice!
Everything was amazing! Island creek oysters were my favorite! Jumbo shrimp cocktail, oyster sliders, clam chowder, and their banana pie were fabulous! We’ll be back! Loved their wall filled with oyster shells! Definitely need reservations.
Excellent bartenders. They steered us in the right direction both with raw bar and entree selections (monkfish and scallop entrees). Could not have been happier.
Absolutely wonderful! The seafood platter was awesome.
A perfect way to end a day after a nice afternoon at Fenway.
Opening Day for the Red Sox!! First Class!!
Not the freshest lobster in the lobster roll
Food is wonderful - service was great - we never felt rushed and the server was very knowledgeable.
Tasty and refreshingly fresh, as always. A real delight.
Always enjoy coming here, and sitting at the dining bar in the back. Much quieter, and great service.
Brooke was amazing, we’ll be back soon
Great place. High quality, very friendly services, reasonable prices.
My favorite place to eat and relax in Boston. Try to stay at the commonwealth 1 night and Battery Wharf another. It was great.
