Was very grateful to the staff who provided my fiancé and I along with our friends free champagne to celebrate our engagement.

Service was pretty good but the food was nothing exceptional. Fish was very greasy had too much breading and the first time around undercooked. Great location but need to work on food quality.

Good food. Server was attentive. Like other reviews noted, it was a little dark in the dining room in certain areas.

It’s Thanksgiving. We’re thankful that the host was such a dick we left and went to Legal’s instead. The place was empty. No wonder.

Parking validation didn’t take at the Westin garage, so we paid $20 more for parking than we should have.

Food was better than I expected and I would go back again. I recommend the fish and chips pizza and burgers

There really are no restaurants close to the Westin. The food is great and very cost effective pricing. We had the Fish & Chips, Cajun Burger, MJ Burger & a Pizza they all were excellent

Everyone was very nice and efficient, the food was all good, and the beer/wine selection was also good.

Interior spaces were a little dark for my taste.

Went here after a comedy show at Laugh Boston. Nice, quick service and good food! Reasonable prices.

I chose this restaurant out of a variety of options in Boston because the menu was able to accommodate a vegetarian, a meat eater, a child and someone on a diet. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was awesome. Our server wasn't super friendly, but honestly we didn't need that from him. He was attentive and we didn't lack for anything at our table. This is a great place to meet friends for a fun meal. In our case we met friends we hadn't seen in twenty years and the atmosphere was conducive to conversation. Everyone felt comfortable. For example, we were sitting outside and noticed a chill and without even asking the staff turned on the overhead outdoor heaters for us. It was a lovely evening and dinner out with friends at MJ Oconnors.

I loved the atmosphere. Our waitress was very friendly and energetic and the food was enjoyed by all of us! I can't wait to go back again to try something else out on their menu. There is a great comedy club next door, so you can make a nice night of dining and entertainment without having to move your car. And they also also validate parking for a discount.

Two families celebrating together on the 2 Dad's birthdays. Called ahead to let them know and we were "surprised" with 2 super decadent slices of chocolate cake/ice cream with candles (and spoons for everyone)! As a group we ordered cocktails, beer, appetizers, salads/soups, & pizza as well as main entrees ... and the food disappeared instantly! Highly recommend the calamari and truffle steak flat bread pizza as appetizers and the salmon was terrific and very fresh! Quick and friendly service was very much appreciated.
