    The view is outstanding and the servers sweet, but inexperienced…. food was awful and expensive (fried shrimp could have been Gordon’s frozen) and lobster roll (is there such a thing as fake lobster like the fake crab)? Bar manager did ask on the way out and we were honest. He was also very sweet and bought us a drink…. So there’s that going for them. Again… the view and atmosphere is still worth the trip.

    Beautiful evening to be served in outside deck waitress efficient and pleasant My dish of breaded shrimp although tasty was a very small portion and tiny shrimp. And no sides served with it in general prices too high for portion sizes. Value for food not good. Ambiance on deck great No bread or crackers served with drinks I’m not a “big eater” but with a dessert I went away hungry

    This restaurant has greatly improved. The location was always attractive, but the service was confused and spotty. Now, someone manages the floor, watching the tables, and keeping things in order. A few tweaks to the menu have also made a nice difference. Book early, book often.

    Food was just OK. Crab cakes were not " lump" as advertised. Far too much breading. More like crab meat stuffing with very minimal portions of crab. So $21 for two disks of bread. Web site has bottled beer at $6. It is $7. Service was excellent. The menu is very limited with virtually no sides offered. Not even French fries. The outside area where the band and the second bar is is the highlight of this place and would go back for drinks and live music. But for a restaurant experience, will not be back.

    DO NOT GO..WAY OVER PRICED. 3 CRAB CAKES $29.00 were the size of hockey pucks Chowder was cold..lobster grill cheese had the least amount of lobster they could get away with. They add a 10% tip automatically and then want you to leave more.

    We had lovely afternoon lunch at LaMottas. Food and service were terrific. Baked clams (whole clam, not just breading) and Calamari to start were great, mains were the Tuna BLTA, grilled tuna with wasabi mashed potatoes, and Caesar salad with lobster salad - everyone was happy and setting was delightful.

    We love this place, is a waterfront restaurant, with a lot of ambiance, they have a bar outside and other inside, outside they have live music . You can eat there less formal, but we choose inside, because there is view too , over the marine. We had claws chowder , very good, and swordfish. Good wines by the glass, our server was very good. We had a great time, we went back to the hotel by water taxi, so it’s make our experience amazing.

    Lovely place, and great service, especially since the lunch crowd was thin. Been going here for years, and service has been spotty at times, especially dinner. But a breezy day at the harbor with some seafood and white wine is as good as it gets.

    The restaurant was obviously understaffed, starting with waiting to be seated and having a waiter take our order. We had to ask for bread or rolls, which were rather stale. The waiter was inattentive and took a long time to eventually deliver our order. The food was OK, but it was not a really pleasant dining experience.

    We came to LaMotta's to celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary. I made a reservation requesting a table by the water. There were several tables by the water available and the hostess said they were reserved. That was an immediate strike. The soup my husband ordered was luke warm and tasteless. My Caesars salad was romaine lettuce, croutons, no fresh grated cheese or anchovies. The dressing was mediocre. We ordered the salmon. It was served with the skin on top with the seasonings on top. When you removed the skin you also removed the toppings. It was served on clumpy cold couscous. Not great. My son ordered fish tacos. They arrived fried and tasteless. He said the mangos were not fresh. My husband asked 3 times to get his coffee refilled. It was very cold in the dining room. There was an outside band and bar. I might recommend older friends to attend and have bar food and drink. It seemed like an active scene. Mostly 60+ men.

    Service on the patio for dinner (6:30) was really poor/substandard - excuses from a waitress who has been around long enough to know better. A grilled seafood platter for 2 @ $70 was fair, nothing exciting. Drinks were good. The best thing going that evening was mild weather/ nice view.

    We had fun since we went there to see a friend of us playing on a Friday evening. The restaurant is beautiful and right on the water. The food lacked flavor and salt and my crab cakes were burnt. My husband ordered fish tacos which were ok. Burger was fine according to my dad and my mom enjoyed the avocado and burrata bruschetta. Pricey but I guess you pay for the location.

    Waitress not the nicest of people. Older woman not too happy to be there. Raw Oysters were good. Baked Clams the size of a quarter sprinkled with breadcrumbs woohoo. Linguine and Clams NG! It was more like soup. All it was was chicken broth, very little garlic if any. Mushy pasta Fish Tacos. This place is a seafood resturant? We had sodas with the meal and we only had 1 each at $3 per. Waitress very came to ask if we were good our wanted anything. Oh yeah I had to go to the bar to get parmesan cheese.

    We reserved ahead of time, asked for an indoor table, nice view. On our way there we phoned ahead saying we were running 10min late and had 1 extra person. When we got there, on a hot humid day with the heat index over 100 we needed to wait over 10 minutes although there were no other diners. Then we were seated to a 1/2 indoor, 1/2 outdoor table. It was unbearable to stay in that space much less eat there. We tried 2 other tables, both hot, both with bad water views and the 3rd too close to a noise bar. When the heat index is over 100 degrees and someone asks for an indoor table it would be nice if you told them “indoor” means open windows, and lame air conditioning.
