The kitchen has really got it together. I was rather unimpressed the first couple of times I went after they first opened but it has gotten consistently better. My wife and I had a fantastic dinner and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend enjoying a meal there. The service also should be called out as the servers were all very attentive making it a great experience all the way around.

We have been to this restaurant many times. Best time to visit is during brunch on weekends. You will receive attentive, professional service and it's quiet. They made me a lobster roll even though it was not on the menu. Breakfast was enjoyed by the remainder of our party. Large portions. Great price point for the city. Marriott Rewards points earned and we were able to get into the rooftop bar without a wait. It was busy because it was a nice day, but not overcrowded. All in all a great time. We'll be back.

Chef Tatianna does it again! Came here with friends and the food was absolutely perfect. Ordered some apps including the tuna tartar tostada and they hit the spot. Also had a bay scallop meal and it was incredible. Whatever they used as the sauce on it was so flavorful and almost dessert like. Not sure I’ve had something like it before. The scallops were so fresh and the presentation was 5 star. Love this place and hope to visit again.

Wonderful service from staff members and a great ambience. The food was a bit pricey for the portion sizes and overall selection. The “Rooftop” advertising is a bit misleading as the restaurant is on ground level and no reservations can be made to actually eat on the rooftop. There is only a bar located on the rooftop and it is first come first serve to get in even if you made reservations for dinner on the ground floor. I would recommend skipping the food and going straight up to the bar for a drink and a beautiful view of the Boston skyline. The view is worth the trip.

The menu had a good variety. Food taste was excellent. Wait time was not too long, before being seated. We were hoping to get direct access to the rooftop after dinner which they said we couldn't. Disappointed for sure, having spent over $150 for a fine meal/drinks to not have access to the rooftop but to step out and wait in line again. They should have a min. bill threshold to let people dining have direct access to the rooftop if they don't want everyone abusing this easy access. At least make some positive changes in this regard.

The staff did no receive my reservation, which luckily they weren’t busy but they seemed annoyed at that I claimed to have a reservation but didn’t show in the system. We weren’t asked if we preferred to sit inside or outside and they sat us close to another table when the place was practically empty. Our waters were never refilled and the drink menu was taken away prior to us staying we were finished. The waitress was busy chatting with other staff and didn’t check on us; I could see if it was busy... but it wasn’t. Also, we were celebrating a birthday over brunch and the overall experience was okay. The food however was phenomenal.

I made a lunch reservation for the restaurant at the top of the hotel but they confirmed for street level. This was a goodbye lunch for an associate who was returning to her home in China. So we wanted the city view for her. We got the Crab Shack. The hotel did not make it clear that they’d switched the reservation. They could have bee more explicit when they originally confirmed and explained that the rooftop location wasn’t open at lunch. Their marketing seemed to imply it was. Otherwise I wouldn’t have booked it.

The worst service we received. First off we didn’t get any service for the first 10 min. Then when the waiter took our order, we ordered our meals and coffee. We got our food way before our coffee and had to remind them about the coffee multiple times for them to then go and just grab a thermos of coffee right next to us.

Food was excellent -- the breakfast hash was exceptional with tons of really fresh veggies. The ambiance was great with patios outside and basically shielded from any road noise which is rare in Boston. The service on the other hand was really bad (took ~20 minutes to be greeted after seating, server forgot my OJ, received meal covered in sour cream after asking for none, server's attitude was careless). In Boston, there's enough restaurants that you really can demand great food AND great ambiance AND great service.
