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.

                                        So meh. Server seemed bothered to wait on us. We joked that he had another job across the street in between table visits, he took so long and seemed so disinterested. Host was rude, even though we had a rez and restaurant was 70% empty. Won’t be back.

                                        Delicious food, terrible service. I ordered a cocktail and the prices weren't on the menu. It was $19 which seemed a little high.

                                        Good food, but half of the menu was "not available that evening". The shortage of menu items extended to the drinks list as well. It is fine for a hotel place, but I wouldn't recommend if you have other options.

                                        We were seated right away for our reservation. Overall service is extremely slow, took over an hour for our food to come out and when it did some of the food was cold. The waitress was nice but completely unaware we couldn’t even get water refills in between drinks because she was no where to be found. I ordered the octopus and shrimp and both plates were so salty I couldn’t eat it. When we booked this for a party of 8, I was specific on getting a desert as we were celebrating a birthday but no desert was even offered to us. For the location we thought the service would be outstanding, but it wasn’t even mediocre. I’d never book here again and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

                                        Stayed at the Envoy which was a nice experience, room was great looking over water. Went to dinner at Para and was pretty empty for a wednesday night, but our meal was very good. Had the fish that was black bass and deep fried, tender, extremely meaty and was really wonderful. Sides were nice as well and my spouse had the fish tacos which were good. Imagine could be a busy place and if so with staffing could be longer waits, but this night it was very good.

                                        It took over an hour for someone to take our order, and we waited even longer to get our order. I will not be returning.

                                        We went during Dine Out Boston week. I got the tuna tartare, yuca gnocchi, and tres leches. My boyfriend got the tostones with guacamole, cuban coffee steak, and the tres leches. Everything from the drinks to dessert were amazing!! Would definitely come back.

                                        First off the waiter without asking took away the table setting even though it was a reservation for 2. They then after my friend arrived still only provided one menu. The drink I had did not taste like a margarita and after finding a bug in my friends drink I was over it.

                                        Great food. Hoping to see more people going there as the weather improves. Service was great. Totally recommend the Coffee Tres Leches cake for dessert.

                                        Went on a Monday night for my birthday and the place was quiet with less than 10 guests seated in total. Food was such a disappointment—NO flavor, large plates included NO sides, and the drinks had more ice than liquid. I would NOT recommend or visit this place again, sadly. I really did want to like it.

                                        I had somewhat high expectations ‘cause most times we walk by there the place is packed, but I was disappointed, the food and drinks were “good” at best, but our server was so out of it, forgot to put about 40% of our order in, we had to keep reminding her with a kind “we are still waiting for X item” several times, forgot some drinks altogether, the outstandingly bad item was the guac, so bad, overall, I don’t se us visiting this place again

                                        Beautiful room with scenic Seaport location. Service friendly. Cocktails --delicious and inventive. Menu is carefully curated latin inspired small and large plates. We enjoyed the sautéed shrimp small plate and whole bronzino "fish of the day." Plenty of food for two. And tres leche for desert with champagne. Highly recommended for a date, night out with friends or special occasion.

                                        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.

                                        We were there on a Sunday and it was pretty empty, (says closed Sunday's on website!), but the ambience was warm and inviting. Yummy food--we will definitely be back!

                                        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.
