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.

    Way overpriced for what it was. A $19 cocktail to start? Even the high end local places are more reasonable than that. Food was just okay. Again, overpriced for what it was.

    The overall experience was just okay. Everything seemed to lack something. Service was just a bit too slow, food was under seasoned and price was too high for what we got. I can’t say the drinks we very yum. We asked to relay the message to the chef since she is supposed to be well known and the server seemed scared. All I can say is, we didn’t hate it but we didn’t love it.

    Pretty solid wine list, adequate but unspectacular beer list. Decent food, but the reason to come here is the excellent service and hospitality at the bar- top notch bartenders and great vibes.

    The cauliflower dish had good flavor. It was a lot of cauliflower. The combination of music from the Barking Crab combined with the less poppy music coming from inside was annoying. It cost too much for what we had. Paying for location but there is no view.

    Didn’t live up to our high expectations, but met the need for late evening dinner with a nice view of the passers by walking along the waterfront. Pleasant waitress took our drink and food order and then followed up to make sure everything was OK. Delicious paella and mussels for dinner, but both were served after a substantial wait and cool in temperature. They might need to turn up the heating lamp! Otherwise, good location and outdoor dining made it a wonderful evening.

    We chose this restaurant because of the information about a young female chef--how refreshing! But we were sorely disappointed. We had to wait at least an hour for our meal. The server was a lovely woman, by the way, not her fault. She gave us chips and salsa because the wait was so long, and the salsa was "off"--tasted as if it was about to spoil. The meal finally came lukewarm. Nothing about it was special, certainly not justifying the price, except the potatoes, which were ok. I would never go back there for dinner.

    The food was very good and I would definitely go back and explore more of the menu. The restaurant was very quiet/mostly empty, but it was a Monday night. I do think they needed more staffing though as service was somewhat disjointed despite the lack of customers. Though the 2 servers we interacted with were both very personable and courteous.

    Was here Saturday 7/30/22 celebrated my daughter’s birthday and the place was fun and vibrant. Very pricey but but we had a great time so worth the experience. Our server Alex or Alexa was super nice and attentive. Kip, we think he's the manager walked us up to the Outlook Rooftop - very hospitable. All around great time!

    Absolutely horrible. I reserved an outdoor table for a birthday brunch. I had also reserved and paid a deposit to have drinks at the rooftop. Para Maria was completely empty, the hostess / server was incredibly rude and off putting, she claimed out door seating wasn’t available neither was brunch. We could stay for breakfast but we had 10 min to order because the kitchen was going to prep for lunch. We were so upset we canceled the rooftop and left to find somewhere else to celebrate. The envoy rooftop did not refund me the deposit I made and myself and I had to pay 30$ for parking for the 15 min we were there. They need to update open table info as well as their website as I checked both and no where did it say they no longer serve brunch or do our door seating. Worst experience I’ve ever had and a major waste of time and money.

    OMG this meal is an EXPERIENCE. Just Wow! I have a gluten allergy, my friend has a dairy allergy, and they accommodated EVERYTHING so kindly. Ok let’s get down to it. The mussels are the best I’ve ever had. The chef’s preparation is so unique, flavorful, and delicious. I used the GF bread to soak up every lady drop. And the mussels themselves are so big and delicious. The guava BBQ salmon is quite simply one of the best things I’ve ever eaten anywhere. The salmon was perfectly cooked and the sauce is so unique and perfectly layered symphony of sweet and savory. I am already craving it again. The patatas bravas were crispy, with the perfect hit of spice and savory. The tostones are amazing, and the street corn is soooo good (and they kindly made 3 versions for us: one regular which my husband said is AMAZING, one GF which was soooo good, and one DF, which my friend said was also amazing!! Also who is great enough to do THREE versions?). And did I mention the cocktails are off the hook? Highly recommend the rosarita! It’s beautiful and delicious.

    Amazing, gourmet cuisine and wines. Try the mussels, tuna tartare and paella-to die for! Not many ingredients and they tasted superb. The whipped cheesecake with guava sauce and crackers was super delicious! And the pricing is not high. Can’t wait to go back!

    SO DISAPPOINTING!!! Wanted to try something different before a concert at Leader Bank. Here’s why I won’t be returning:1) made a reservation through open table for outside seating. Told when we arrived that outside is first come first served (this was not noted when I made the reservation; actually, it specifically said that if it rained they couldn’t accommodate us inside) & there were no tables outside. 2) Hostess handed us the regular menu (not many items & very expensive.) I asked to see the bar menu that was listed on both open table and their website. Hostess said,oh, we don’t have that menu anymore. 3) Waitress came over & barely said hello and seemed annoyed…she was either having a bad day or doesn’t like her job, either way she made us feel very uncomfortable. She was not happy when I asked for a glass for my can of beer. …at this point we would have left , but there was no where else to get a table before the concert. So, we ordered calamari & burgers. The food was good, but $18 for a small burger & fries is ridiculous. The cocktails were $19 each, so we stuck to the beer.

    Breakfast while staying at the hotel was excellent. The menu is limited but well chosen... there are enough interesting items to please the foodie, as well as eggs any way you'd like. Ingredients are of the highest order. Chef Tatiana Rosana, who gained fame from her wins on the TV show Chopped is in the kitchen, nice to see she's hands on. I'd highly recommend the Mexican French Toast and the Smoked Salmon... both very impressive. Be warned, you may become addicted to one or both of these dishes. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    Ridiculously expensive!! Chips and salsa cannot cost $13. I ordered the cauliflower entree. Saw the price on the menu $27 so I figured it would be a good sized entree. I got a slice of cauliflower that was smaller than my hand. The food tastes good but the portions are NOT worth the money at all. I can’t believe this place is still in business. Never going back. Also the menu I saw on their website is completely different from what we got in the restaurant.

    Just across from the barking crab, which unfortunately blocks the Boston skyline, but otherwise this location is great. You can sit inside, outside or in between at the open windows. The servers were friendly and the food great. Especially the olives were to die for.
