Great food and service. Our server Grace was very knowledgeable about the menu. I was also very pleased with all the gluten free options. The oysters were delicious as was the ahi tuna. The only negative is we were sitting outside and there was a sewage smell at times.
Great food and service .
The appetizers were wonderful -recommend the tuna crudo and crab leg. The frutti de mari was very bland. Seafood was chewy and overcooked (shrimp and calamari). The service was very slow and not very attentive. No follow up on how entrees were or we would have said something. My guest did not eat most of the meal & the server did not ask why. Just asked if we would like it packaged, which we did not. Wine and aperol spritzers were great.
Amazing food! We got the oysters, grilled octopus, lobster mashed potatoes, wild boar pappardelle, tagliatelle con aragosta. Wow. All of it. Service was fantastic.
Amazing dinner! Wow. We live in Alaska and we were touring around Boston and had the most delightful dinner
Great all around services!!! From the receptionist to the waiter. Staff are overly welcoming and attentive to your every need. Foods always amazing here. Stop by the bar and have some exceptional gin and tonic before heading to your table.
Such a great birthday dinner!! The oysters and grilled octopus to start were great and everyone loved their meals. The gnocchi was delicious. Great service too. We will be back!
Wish the shrimp were chilled more but overall great experience. Love the outdoor seating
Mare's management seems to have changed for the worst. We had a lovely waiter who was very accommodating and kind/friendly- however the management was not on the same page. Our waiter was calm and flexible and stated we were in no rush to order our food, then when we finally did a few minutes before the kitchen closed, the manager was very rude and was angry with us that we ordered so late- even though we had tried to order earlier in the night. It was like our waiter and management were NOT on the same page...which lead to the experience being awkward and slightly hostile. I have always loved Mare and usually they are extremely organized and professional- but this was not the experience I had. They told my friend that the chicken she ordered would take "45minutes" to cook and would be too long for them and forced her to order a different meal that she did not want....it was extremely unprofessional and strange that no one was on the same page. They also turned the lights on on multiple people. They need to figure things out now that restrictions have been lifted, because I am turned off from this past experience. Food was good as usual but service/experience was unusual for Mare. I would not recommend Mare to a friend for anything later in the night, hopefully in a few months they will figure it out.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Always a great time!
The food is stunning and the surroundings are hip and dramatic. Great wine selection too.
Good food and service — don’t let them seat you on Hanover St! Tables are very slanted and dirty, chairs uncomfortable and dirty, people watching great but due to street exhaust the air, too, just feels dirty. The outdoor ambiance was not what I expected given the price — other North End restaurants have done much better with their street-adjacent seating with more comfortable chairs, table cloths, candles, etc.
My friends had a great time at Mare. Ambiance and service were great. We loved oysters and some of the meals, but risotto and some appetizers were not tasty and overpriced.
Fabulous restaurant, attentive service, wonderful food, great location
Mare is a wonderful restaurant in the North end. Although some may be taken aback by the prices, it is so worth it. We have dined there many times and are never disappointed. Whether summer or winter the setting is unique and energetic. The staff is always pleasant, personable,and very competent. Whether it be appetizers, lobster, pasta or dessert it is always presented creatively. Definitely worth the trip.Their baked stuffed lobster or lobster salad is delicious and the mushroom tagliatelle is out standing. The tiramisu is unlike any other. A big shout out to our fantastic waitress, Grace who made our dinner so enjoyable!
Overall we thought it was an over-rated restaurant. It was recommended to us by a local, but it was quite noisy. And very expensive for what we got - I suppose it’s “trendy” but didn’t impress us at all. The staff was very nice and the food was okay but not worth the price. Sorry we were hoping for something fabulous but it was just all right.
The service was fantastic, Artimus our server was extremely attentive, informational and had a good sense of humor. The food was outstanding. From the appetizers to the main courses and through to dessert the food was 5 star great. The risotto de Mare and lobster ravioli was tremendous. Will be back again soon.
Food was excellent ,great if you want good selection of seafood choices, service good, its a little over priced we thought but the vibe is nice,fireplaces,little hidden treasure of norhthend,a little noisy though close to tunnel trafic,but over all great
The food was fabulous- grilled octopus, lobster bisque, branzino, pasta with lobster, swordfish! Our waiter Jio was lovely and the manager, who just arrived from Positano, was helpful and delightful. I am looking forward to coming back soon (if not weekly!).
All the staff were excellent especially our main server, Jio. Food was very good and plentiful. Found some of the prices excessive however this wansone our first times out with eased Covid restrictions so we may be rusty on the price scene nowadays. Overall highly enjoyable and will consider Mare again.
Wife and I went up to Boston for a Bruins Playoff game. We wanted to hit the North end and always like to hit Mare. Wasn't sure what to expect since covid. Everything was great. highly recommend. We will go back for sure.
The food was excellent and the servers were friendly and knowledgeable. Very enjoyable evening with our family.
I had the best night!! The food was awesome and the woman at the bar took such good care of us!
We did wait 13 minutes after being sat to be acknowledged but after that the service was very good. The drinks were delicious but a bit pricey for the environment. Food was amazing and excellent value.
If I wanted to be ignored by a man, I’d call my ex-boyfriend.
Everything was amazing! Marcel was our server and he was awesome, extremely helpful with the menu.
We’re definitely going back.
Food was good as always!
Mare never disappoints😋
The zuppatta di maré was large and fresh, with lots of lobster, prawns and shellfish. The swordfish was fantastic. The bread pudding was a great ending. Very good service, good ambience.
Great food and service; more selection of better wines by glass would be a plus.
For appetizers: trio of crudos, fritture mista, whole Nelly fried calmas,
Pastas: wild boar papoardelle, nerano pasta, lobster ravioli, tagliatelle con aragosta,
And just all the desserts
Excellent environment, friendly service, great menu choices and really amazing tasty food. Best fresh seafood restaurant! Can’t wait to come back! This is now my favorite seafood resto!
Awesome birthday celebration!
Mare was wonderful! Wait staff was excellent and very helpful. A joy to feel safe in an intimate setting. Food was superb. Grilled octopus to die for!!
Always a pleasure at Mare. All around great little restaurant.
Prefect date/birthday spot! The outside patio with the heaters were so nice
Very good food and service. Great restaurant
The outdoor seating is a wonderful oasis shielded from the crowded hustle and bustle on Hanover St. The lobster rolls were excellent. Jordan is a great hostess!
Sooo delicious! Everything was better than expected and exceeded my expectations. Would definitely love to come back!
