Love this place~ Great service and amazing food every time.
Always a great meal. Excellent service. Great ambiance.
Another wonderful meal in the North End, feels like I'm in Italy again! We will be back!
Love this place, the halibut special was amazing! Fresh bread from their bakery great for soaking up delicious sauces.
The seafood was mediocre for the price we paid. I was expecting more from this place
The bartender and staff were all amazing. The Calamari was very good. The espresso martini was one of the best that I have had
Had an amazing night. Thanks to the hostess for holding our reservation even though we were late. Our waiter Diego was the BEST! First time here and I highly recommend it.
Wonderful food, great wine, overall very happy! Service was ok - it was very busy. We had a desert gifted to us that was forgotten - a friend called ahead. We will still be back :)hand sanitizer on tables was a great addition.
Great value, efficient system to handle pandemic situation.
Food and ambiance were excellent. I was quite unhappy that even though I listed it on the reservation and reminded the person that sat us at the table, nothing was done or mentioned about my sons birthday as I requested.
Celebrated my birthday here and fell in LOOOVE this place. It’s location is conveniently tucked away in the North End and easy to get to. This place is such a gem! Everyone from the hostess to the waiter and all other staff members were extremely nice and welcoming. The food was great and so was the ambiance. I will definitely be back.
Amazing ambiance! Food is incredible!
The best lobster ravioli I have ever had. Treated out of town friends to dinner. They were blown away.
Out of the brick chicken. Reason we went!
Spectacular food, rivals my time in Italy! Wonderful European service, I will be back!
Food had very very low portions. Food was nasty. Tasted like i could go that at a 2 star restaurant or McDonald’s
Beautiful ambiance, drinks were delicious and food was great. Waiters were attentive. Overall good experience, romantic vibes.
Fantastic as always!
Seared tuna entree was veiny. Not the best quality
Took my wife out for her birthday and enjoyed both the food and the ambience. I highly recommend the lobster ravioli
We had a birthday reservation for 645. While we were waited to be seated looked like they overbooked as they were very confused with reservations. They seated us at 715 at the table next to the exit( when I specifically mentioned that its a birthday reservation and it was a special evening for us). We asked to be relocated and they said no as well as told us that we have 1.5 hours to eat as they are very busy that night. We planned on staying for longer than 1.5 hours as well as spend a good amount of $$$ as we were celebrating birthday and it was 5 of us. We also asked for a vase or a bucket as we had multiple flower bouquets and had server said they dont have any so we had to put flowers on the floor. Multiple times we had to ask for a change of dishes as they were dirty.Looked like everyone was in a rush and we felt like we are on their time and not ours. We decided to get couple apps and one round of drinks and had to make reservation somewhere else to continue our celebration. Definitely very disappointed with service and attitude at the restaurant. Appetizers were yammy though.
Good food good service, overall nice experience
Good family dinner for sisters birthsay
Absolutely loved the atmosphere and our service was great. However the food was not the best I’ve had in the north end. Definitely a place for drinks and a great view!
Great food and spot in the north end for seafood/Italian
Two of us had the hot lobster rolls, and they were really disappointing. They included a lot of chives or something similar, which overwhelmed the lobster flavor. There was way too much butter sauce, which made the roll instantly mushy and unappealing. Given the quality of lobster rolls at other restaurants in the area, I won't likely return to Mare.
Great ambiance, excellent food and good service. A must try experience if you’re in Boston.
Service was very poor- we had a reservation and they still had us wait over an hour. Did not offer anything as we waited and it was raining outside. Food was excellent though!
Went here for my girlfriend’s birthday- great dinner. Super fresh seafood, hip music, great fireplace and ambiance. The cocktails were superb and our waiter was excellent!!
Great time awesome staff and food we had such a good tune !
The atmosphere was great, the hostess was very nice, and the food was delicious. However, the server seemed like she was having a bad day or in a mood. The oysters were great, I would recommend the Abigail oysters. The espresso martini was, eccellente! Aside from the service, the manager seemed to accommodate guests and was very professional and upbeat. Maybe next time we will sit outside for a different experience. Overall, I would recommend this place to a friend.
It was great Atmosphere
Food was fabulous! Waitstaff was very good!
Food was lovely! Cocktails were awesome and staff was friendly!!! Highly recommend!
Food was incredible. Complimented the chef on our way out. Only issue was wine was served way off temperature.
Excellent experience and great food
Celebrated a birthday.
A great evening. Outdoor space was fine (not perfect) as we were in the alley but overall excellent
Food was amazing as usual. Drinks on point. Server was a great server but slightly scarce, he seemed to be spread pretty thin with a lot of tables so no fault of his own. One of my favorite places but a lot of the other clientele is obnoxious and don’t follow distancing or masks but there’s only so much staff can do while they are doing their jobs and can tel people to follow rules and have signage. Still highly recommend. Amazing staff and food/drinks.
Went here for my boyfriends birthday dinner, he ended up surprising me by proposing to me! The staff was so professional and nice and did an amazing job keeping it a surprise and setting up everything! The food was also amazing! I would deff go back here :)
