The olive oil that came with the bread was the best I have ever had in America. The food was superb and our waiter, Carlos, was a joy! A very special anniversary indeed!
Wonderful atmosphere- the food is not only outstanding but served beautifully- the waitstaff was friendly, attentive, and personable. Highly recommend an evening here!
Better than average but not by a lot. Solid but not especially elegantly presented for the money.
This is my favorite north end restaurant!! A hidden gem!
Great service and food.
It was delicious. Our waiter was very attentive. Would definitely return.
The very best in the North End. Everything about Mare is top notch!
Everything was spectacular.
Mason was the best manager, accommodating and incredibly attentive. The seafood was impeccable and the tiramisu was flawless. Thank you!!!
It was excellent Great atmosphere
Awful experience today. Food took over 40 minutes to come, waiter came to the table 3 times letting us know it was on its way. Fourth time he came to the table to tell us he forgot to place our order. Think we received dining on the house? Nope! We got a free water that was served as we’re heading out. Unbelievable! No plans to return.
Loved Mare and will definitely be back soon. Food was delicious, drinks were perfect and the vibe was really cool here.
Mare has very good seafood and nestled in a corner of the North End it is a fun place to go. A previous iteration of the restaurant had imaginative offerings that are absent from this menu. Service was great. My only complaint is that we were seated next to the exit ramp for the tunnel and the view and sound was not appealing.
Everything was delicious. Especially loved the fish tartar, trio of crudos and swordfish. And great oysters!
Food, service and atmosphere was fabulous.
We brought our daughter here for dinner at the recommendation of a friend and it did not disappoint. We loved eating outside and the food was amazing. Our service was good. Not great and the bill was pricey. We would dine again for a special occasion.
First time there. Great food and really nice outdoor availability. Good wi e list and just totally pleasant
Excellent food and service
Food was average and was lukewarm at best when it came out. I liked my husbands gnocchi better than my pappardelle. He liked the lobster bisque though. Our table was right next to where the servers hang out and it was distracting. Was never given a refill on my Coke.
Great menu with with excellent ambiance. The food was outstanding. The device was outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant in the North End.
Excellent service and atmosphere. Espresso martini is a must!
Overall, a very nice experience. Food and service were very good.
The starters (grilled octopus and three crudos) were excellent. We shared the main course of stuffed lobster - I prefer lobster au naturel. Overall, fine.
However, the Ladies’ toilet left a lot to be desired - no toilet paper and an overflowing thrash can.
Such a disappointment! We were excited for Mare but this was simply not good seafood. I had the gnocchi; most of the mussel shells in my dish were empty and those shells that did have meat were difficult to scrape out and tough. The shrimp in both the gnocchi and in the Mediterranean salad were hard and chewy, like they'd sat under heat lamps for too long. I usually try to say good things about a restaurant on OT, especially when the economy is so tough, but there really is nothing good to say about Mare.
Recommended by friends. So good we are returning tonight.
We went there for my birthday dinner. The foods were great! But when we order muscles, the server asked us the red or white source. We told them the white but they brought the red. But the taste was good Also on the drink menu, they mentioned Wine Chanti the 2018 but actually, we got 2020 one. Again, the taste was good!
The timing for severe was a little off. They brought appetizers quickly, but we had to wait for a long time for the main dishes.
Tiramisu was so yummy and not too sweet.
Overall it's all good and I want to come back again!
This is my second time dining at Mare.
My first time there we had a very small table next to the host stand on the covered terrace. While the seating was not very well laid out, the food was delicious.
I chose to come back here for my birthday and promotion dinner with my family.
The restaurant accommodated my request for a fire pit table (although my mother decided she couldn't hear us well enough so we moved to a traditional standard table that was very nicely spaced on the terrace.)
Unfortunately, this time was lack-luster at best. The service was okay although my mother had to remind her to put a birthday candle on the dessert and she came back to ask me if I wanted a candle in my dessert and dropped the check off to me. Easy mistake. The food was nothing in comparison to the first time we dined here. My mother and I got the lobster ravioli which I remembered being delicious. This time the lobster meat was rubbery and hard. My partner got the salmon which he had also gotten last time and thoroughly enjoyed and this time found bones in it.
I appreciated that for our 10 yr old, they were more than happy to accommodate for us and make some plain pasta and tomato sauce.
Overall, it was just an alright experience and we won't be in a rush to dine there again soon. Consistency is key. This time just didn't hit the mark.
High energy—crowded and noisy. Food was wonderful! Had tagliatelle with lobster, porcini mushrooms, and lobster sauce. Dining partner had a tomato-broth with half a lobster, langoustine, mussels, clams, scallops. Last night visiting Boston was perfect!
I had a wonderful experience! The food was superb and the staff were very attentive. They made my birthday dinner very special!
I have eaten here twice before and walked away loving the place. On this visit the Hors d'oeuvre and oysters were excellent. The main meal, however, did not come out all at the same time for our party of 4. The Pasta dish was not the portion size expected as I have eaten here before. Ordered a baked lobster and the stuffing was slightly burnt and dry. The claw meat was shelled and placed in front of lobster but there were no knuckles. Probably wont go back.
Quality food with a extremely attentive wait staff.
Great fresh seafood. Loved the oysters. The lobster raviolis were amazing! Great bottle of white Italian wine. Service could’ve been a bit more attentive but honestly I think it was just our waitress and sometimes it happens. Loved the outdoor patio option although we sat inside. The ambience was much nicer than I expected. Def a must try!
Absolutely outstanding!!! Best seafood we’ve had in a while!!
Great oysters great service fab linguine with clams
We loved everything about this restaurant. Fabulous authentic Italian, fresh delicious seafood. Well trained attentive staff. Ambience that was magical. One of our favorites.
Food was amazing - ordered the zucchini blossoms, surf and turf app, and the baked stuffed lobster (which was alittle pricey). Mason, the host, took special care of us and went above and beyond for our special occasion. It was a fabulous dinner and evening!
It was a great evening. The food and service were world class.
