Great scenery. Limited food choices, more like finger foods and not much to choose from. Not sure if it’s due to COVID but will give 2 over 10 for food

It was my birthday and no one sung happy birthday and I added that into my reservation notes so that was very poor. I should have gave a 1 star but I am being nice. When it got cold out, it felt like an insult when they moved us inside right at the door so I was still freezing. Then my brother in law got into a small situation when he asked to use another pen to sign the receipt because the pen he was using didn't work, another waitress said something about it. We had to get up and leave. We are very nice people and we should have been treated better. Thank you.

TERRIBLE SERVICE!!! The food was priced so high yet served in biodegradable paper trays and drinks served in plastic cups....even an expensive martini. SUCH A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE for the price.

This place is AWESOME!!! From the ambiance, to the service. The food is great and fantastic drinks. I had Stephanie as my server and she was an absolute sweetheart. Iona was the hostess that evening and was just as lovely! It was a great experience and I can’t wait to return! :)

Wait for almost an hour to get seated even if we already had a reservation. We do understand the situation of weather or no matter what, Should tell us earlier about their shortage of seats... just a call would be fine actually.

We had 8:00 reservations for a party of 5 (4 adults 1 child). Upon arrival I checked in with the hostess who informed me there would be a 15-20 minute wait. After 45 minutes I went back and spoke with an older man and explained that we had been waiting 45 min although we had been told 15-20 min wait. He told me that due to the cold weather they had downsized their tables from 80 to 12 inside dining. I told him that if I had known I would have to wait 1 hour for a table I would not have remained. We had a child in our dinner party and that was totally unfair treatment. After an hour wait we were sent upstairs to dine. The food was okay and the service was not attentive. Btw even after I spoke with the gentleman I overheard the hostess and him telling new patrons there would be a 15 minute wait. This practice of lying to customers regarding wait time is unconscionable. I shall never return to this restaurant. They are polite liars.

What a great place to go for a drink, we went when it was snowing but we were kept nice and warm within the enclosure with the heaters. The staff were fantastic and the drinks and food were very nice. 10/10 would return and would recommend.

The atmosphere is great, you are looking out over the water, and have the most beautiful view of Boston. The menu was extremely limited and paper (which no restaurant has at the moment) we looked at the menu online and when ordering got instructed that the paper menu is the only option, and the server seemed annoyed with us. All through our meal, we felt as if the staff wanted to flip the table rather than having us stay to eat and drink more. We never got asked if we wanted a second beverage or anything else but instead got the check dropped off, making us feel rushed. This was a special day for us as my engagement was being celebrated and my birthday and I'm highly disappointed... want to come back due to the view but hope experience overall will be better. Willing to give this place a second chance.

Excellent views, great location. The patio is decorated really nice. Not enough heater coverage if cold and windy. All bar food and very greasy but good for drinks. Everything was served in disposable due to COVID-19, including wine. Not very convenient if you are looking to have food. Our server was very nice but the manager was an anxiety ball. After 90 min, we wanted to be respectful and asked for check. Server was busy so it took her another 15 min to get the check. Manager comes over and was a bit rude to my husband, without knowing it was the delay at their end. Regardless, would recommend it.

Our waitress was good but one of the managers was rude and unprofessional. We asked to be seated at a different table next to the heaters and we understood that it was a busy place with reservations only but the way the message was delivered to us was rude and unprofessional. The manager on duty that night did not service our request with kindness. She was blunt and mean unfortunately. Other than that the place and ambiance was good and beautiful.

The restaurant isn’t as advertised. We had to sit inside because they overbooked our reservation.. and we did not get to sit outside or enjoy the “Lookout Rooftop”. Also, bartenders don’t wear their masks correctly.

Disappointed in our seating. Made reservations several weeks ago for 5 pm. When we arrived, we got seated on the backside and not even along the edge where there was a nice view of the water, no heaters or fires on our area either.. When leaving I saw the prime seating. How early do you need to make a reservation or leave to get a nice spot? Maybe you need to be a regular or slide a big tip to everyone prior to being seated.

The woman downstairs ended up checking us in for our reservation but made us wait in the lobby for 30 min bc we were early. We got there at 8:30 and reservations were at 9. She never came in to get us so i walked up to her at 9pm and it seemed like she completely forgot about us and told us we can go upstairs to the roof bar. When we got upstairs the hostess was confused bc it said we checked in at 8:30 and she was extremely rude about it. Then we get seated INSIDE... the only reason why we wanted to go was bc it’s a roof top bar and we wanted a nice view. We asked her if we can go outside and she said nothing is available. Also they only give you a 1.5 hour time limit and we were sitting for at least 20 min and no one walked up to us to get our order so we left. Such a waste of time.. i would never go there again after that experience.

Poor service, rude hostesses and not worth the money, since there’s only a “chance” you’ll get a table with a view and the food is subpar.

Venue was physically nice. Food ok but not substantial. Weather is unpredictable, extremely foggy. No view. Management cavalier with COVID protections!! Allowed large group, 20+ to overwhelm one end of restaurant. Groups of 8 ant 10 crowded around couches designated for 6. This breaks protocol. Should be reported to state. Very unsafe for wait staff and those seated near.

The vibe, food, and drinks were great. Not many options for other dietary restrictions. Would still recommend for a cute date or night out with the girls
