Rooted in tradition and steeped in nostalgia, Para Maria (Located in the lobby level of the Envoy Hotel) is a Latin-inspired restaurant located in the center of Boston’s Seaport District. Translating to "For Maria," The Envoy Hotel's latest dining experience is dedicated to Chef Tatiana Rosana's grandmother, or abuela, Maria. It was through her grandmother's lessons that Tatiana first discovered her passion for cooking and love of food, the same passion that drives the menu.

                                        Amazing food , great service and great ambiance. Carly was our server and she was fantastic. We enjoyed the NY strip, Arroz con pollo from the large tapas menu and chili rub potatoes with Aoli, tuna tartare, from the small tapas plus chips and fire roasted salsa to start. We brought our 7 year old and she had the cheeseburger with fries. Never seen her eat so much. She loved her meal plus some of our food. Fun cocktails for adults and nice selection of mocktails. Over all great experience!

                                        The food is actually really great and it’s awesome you can go right up to envoy, the food is just MINIATURE. The $15 tacos are 2 bite sized tacos and the ahi tuna is 1 chip with tuna on it….

                                        Para Maria is one of my favorite spots in Boston. Chef Tatiana always brings creativity and great flavors to her dishes, and there's always something new to try. Service is excellent as well, and we always feel at home when we visit.

                                        Vibe and ambience was nice, and even the server service was pretty good. Unfortunately we didn’t enjoy the food and were quite disappointed. It took over 20 mins for us to get chips and salsa… we were told the kitchen was overwhelmed due to large parties. We only ate the two apps we ordered, and were underwhelmed. The table next to use who arrived 30 mins after we did, got their food in less than 10 mins. Quite disappointed with the kitchen and food service.

                                        The service was REALLY slow. The food portions were tiny and definitely overpriced for what you got. I would not go back there again.

                                        It was very busy and the service was good. Mushroom tacos very good. Whole fish on a plate- well, guess you have to have a stomach for that. Fish was good but bland. Nice atmosphere.

                                        Beautiful place but very small menu. Most of the things pictured online was from the summer. No corn, steak tacos, etc.

                                        Honestly over hyped. We reserved an igloo, but were only allowed in half an hour late due to the previous party but we were still kicked out promptly at 11. So we had to hit the minimum in an hour and a half. The waitstaff didn’t come frequently enough so we had to order multiple rounds with each order. It also felt cramped in the igloo and started to feel claustrophobic after a while. Would recommend the rooftop but not worth it to rent out an igloo. Just get there early so you can avoid lines then just stand by the bar and grab the other seats on the roof.

                                        The igloos were so much fun! We reserved one for our bachelorette party. It was the perfect place for the occasion! Service was excellent and you cannot beat the city views. I definitely will be back again in the future :)

                                        Fun time, but they do not serve food on the rooftop. Minimum 500 to reserve an igloo. You are required to drink 500 in alcohol in 2 quick hours and cannot buy a morsel of food. Don’t waste your money. They literally toss you out of the igloo right at the 2hour mark. Honestly I’m shocked they are allowed to do it without offering some kind of food.

                                        The igloos were a blast! The service however was terrible! Our waitress thought us middle age people were stupid. When the bill came it had $90 as a service fee. And when we asked she didn’t tell us it was gratuity already included until we did the math. So Taylor was going to end up with $250 tip for bringing 3 rounds! Ya not this time T!

                                        We had a great time recently for a co-workers going away party. The igloo is really fun and the view is amazing. Our server was great and very attentive! The only thing I would change is I wish they served food/apps of some kind. Doesn’t even need to count towards the minimum, just would have been a nice option. Would definitely recommend for a fun special event!

                                        My friends and I all had a great time. We were given a bell inside the igloo to contact our server if and when we needed drinks. We did not use it most of the time because she always came in to check on us which was good. The view was spectacular and the music that played in the background was not overbearing. The only downside is that there is no food. If I could make a suggestion I would say offer finger foods that are not messy if the idea is to keep the igloos clean with a quick turn around after the two hours are up.

                                        It’s an experience, but I will never ever return. The drinks on their menu were absolutely terrible! We left over $200 of drinks untouched because they were DISGUSTING! The service was very very slow. The music is sub par! Thank goodness for the gorgeous sky line. Spending $500 is way too much there were 10 of us and it was near impossible! Beer and wine are cheap and the $15 specialty cocktails are disgusting.... they should offer snacks or some type of food!

We were allowed right up and our waitress was outstanding. One thing to note is that if your slot is until 11, last call is at 10:30. We will definitely be back!!

                                        This was a 30th birthday celebration. Igloos are amazing great vibe, great music. and fantastic city and water view. Our waitress was great she proactively checked on us making sure we were all set. Drinks were delicious and the overall service was great. Everyone party of 10 loved it a memory was made at the igloos. Already trying to find another occasion to celebrate at the igloos again. I highly recommend - for a fun and memorable night go to the Envoy Igloos

We had 2 hours of lots of laughs and the igloos were warm and toasty inside. Love the light up colors and being able to see outside into the Boston Night sky! I would recommend to others for a fun night out!

                                        $50 per person for 10 people was great. There is a bar minimum of $500 in order to reserve igloos. We divided amongst 10 to be fair for all. Almost 2 hours later and we were only up to 365...so a few order extra drinks to spend the 500. There is no food available here and that is a lot of alcohol to drink in a short time. A few of us drank more than we had wanted but The experience was awesome!! The Igloos are plastic as well as chairs inside and they are all lit a different color and heated! The music was great and the service was outstanding! I say it’s a must do event! I just think that they should have food or some kind of buffet available for people to soak up some of the alcohol...could be dangerous for some that don’t know limits.

                                        Loved the experience! It would have been a lot better if they served appetizers but I definitely recommend it. Keyla was also amazing!

                                        Best time. After 2 hours we were looking for more. Pricy but worth the experience.

                                        The Envoy Hotel has a gorgeous view, and the service is lovely if you actually stay at the hotel. The servers on the rooftop, however, are very rude and slow. I would not recommend getting a table in the summer or an igloo in the winter.

                                        We had a blast in our igloo! I think the only thing was that because there was no food, it made it hard to make sure everyone came with a full stomach. I think having even an appetizers menu would make this even better!!!

                                        They should probably tell people that there is a $500 minimum spend for 2 hours. Also it was really cold and the heater that they provide is not adequate for a cold night in Boston.

                                        Very disappointing experience with Igloos for NYE. While we were told this was the place to be for NYE, we booked an Igloo for 10 people and confirmed a $500 minimum and a reservation at 9 pm. The manager called multiple times to confirm the reservation in the days leading up to NYE including 10 people and $500 minimum. All sounded great.. NYE at 8 pm, I went to the host to confirm that they would not give up our table if our dinner ran late and we were not there by 9. It was then that I was informed our reservation was only for 9-11 - i.e. they would kick us out of our table at 11 for a new reservation celebrating NYE at midnight. While I knew there was a $500 min. and a $200 cancellation fee, being kicked out of our table at 11 was new information to me. The Igloo manager offered no solution and just stated that was their policy and I'd be charged $200 for cancelling the reservation. I received a text with a screen shot of the policy after debating the charge - there is no mention we'd have to leave at 11 on the reservation confirmation sent from OpenTable. Who books a NYE reservation for 10 people so that they have to leave the table and bar at 11!? While the manager was so prompt to call me 3 days in a row to confirm I knew about the $500 minimum, why wouldn't he have confirmed we would have to leave at 11 and not have the reservation at midnight as desired? Even worse is that Igloo is at the Envoy hotel (owned by SPG) and I'm a loyal Platinum member with SPG. We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights during our stay and still spent our money within their property anyway at the hotel bar which would accommodate us at midnight. Igloo feels like a simple tourist trap. If you're looking for a cool view of the city, I'm sure you'll enjoy it. If you're looking to feel good about your experience then look elsewhere - Igloo left a very bad taste in my mouth. For the record, I enjoyed the Envoy (location and hotel) and had a good time at the hotel bar.

                                        The service was great but very disappointed in the available drinks. Given that there is no food I would have expected a better selection of beverages. We asked for coffee. They had none. They ran out of Baileys. In general the drinks were awful. A Jameson and coke was red! Very disappointing
