Food was "good" and the service was "good". Nothing about it was great. We had brunch on Sunday and between the singer with the ear-splitting voice and the TV's with the Jerry Springer infomercial on the ambience was horrendous. All while the Red Sox were playing as well as a golf tournament. Despite asking twice for the Red Sox game we were forced to watch Jerry...

Had an outstanding experience at Outlook! Enjoyed several appetizers, mussels, ceviche, then the amazingly delicious steak! Would be more than happy to point people in the direction of this place when looking for an impressive experience and courteous yet respectful service. 5 stars for sure!

Live Jazz music during brunch. This was my second time here.Brunch menu is well rounded and classic. Food was very good, two of us had omelets and other two had shakshouka (I have menu envy)! Price was reasonable for an upscale hotel restaurant. Great location, bright and modern decor, not overly crowded and the music was a nice touch.

I dined here on a Saturday night with a group of friends. We were seated past our reservation time, but it was not the restaruants fault as it was a nice night and people wanted to sit and enjoy the open windows. My only true complaints are the service was extremely slow. It took forever to receive waters, let alone our alcoholic drinks. Almost 15-20 minutes. We shared three appetizers; the grilled octopus, steak tartare, and tuna tataki. Each was prepared beautifully, except the portions were not exactly generous for the price (between $15-18). For dinner, we had the filet, steak frites, salmon, and paella. The paella was a very small portion but delicious. All the other entrees were good size. The ambiance is not exactly romantic or a place you'd like to stay and hang out. Between the food and the service, the experience was average. I most likely will not be back due to there are better restaurants in the vicinity for the price and better ambiance and service.

Food wasn’t good. Not worth the price. Lobster Benedict was overpriced and they don’t even use real lobster. Regular eggs Benedict was lackluster and the ham on it just looked like one slice of deli meat. Hash browns and drinks were good, service was okay. Inside of the restaurant is pretty, nice atmosphere.

I visit Envoy often but this time the service was pretty bad, the waiter didn't seem to pleased to have his job. It took multiple times to get the attention and requests for common things such as silverware, water etc. My party also got the sense that the waiter wanted us out quickly, he attempted to deliver the receipt before we even made out dessert request. The food and ambiance was decent and that's probably the reason I'll come back again. Highly recommend to order multiple starters and treat it as a sharing style meal.

The food was delicious. Executive chef Tatian Rodman’s is very humble. She came and met my group. She didn’t get weirder out that I found her on LinkedIn LOL.

My group sat in a glass room that overlooked the kitchen. We could see everything going on.

The waiter was very attentive and met our needs.

Came in for Sunday Brunch. There was live music, the decor is inviting with edision lights and an open dining area. The lobster benedict is one of the best, if not the best I've had in the NE area. There was a generous amount of lobster on both halves, the egg was poached were the yolk was still soft- overall delicious! The sandwich was alright in comparison but there seemed to be too much mayo. The coffee was good but there were no refills, or we weren't offered a refill which was upsetting as the mugs were deceivingly small.

Really good food. The risotto and Mac n Cheese are amazing. Also, the salmon is really good. We were a group of six and shared the flatbread as an appetizer; it was excellent and enough as a starter!
Really good ambiance, we went for a birthday celebration and it was a great place for it!

The Pancakes are really good! We had the Chilequilles with checken and that had too many nanchos and not enough meat.
Also the mimosas were not the best, except for the Basil one.
Will get take out from there in the future for some of the sweeter stuff but that's about it.

I requested for a regular table and the hostess still asked us if it was OK to get a high table. She was very grouchy and not friendly at all. And when we got situated in our table we waited for more than 10 minutes to have a waiter come to us. I even had to ask for one. Otherwise we could have waited longer for the waiter to come. Not a good experience for us

To be honest I’ve been out a lot lately and am catching up on reviews. The fact I can’t recall with any great fondness the meal I enjoyed here speaks for itself I suppose. I keep coming back but I’m not sure why. I always leave feeling like I want it to be nicer than they do. Great hotel. The food is serviceable but the whole thing lacks soul.

Had a dinner with my friend, we loved the food and the vibe of the place, but the restaurant was freezing (we had to ask to have the heat turned on?) and our waiter was honestly terrible. He would barely wait for us to finish our sentences before walking away, he never asked us if we wanted another drink after our first one (we did), and when we ordered dessert and coffee the dessert came out right away but the coffees were MIA until we asked about them, and when we did he acted like we were bugging him and was like “yeah yeah yeah they are coming”. Overall I would go back for the food but maybe in the summer and definitely not with that waiter.
