    The raw bar is second to none. We always have the freshest oysters and crude when dining at Row 34. The whole fish is absolutely gorgeous and so flavorful.

    Ambience, oysters, and cocktails were terrific. The main dishes were generally good, with the notable exception being the crab pasta dish, which was mushy and had no crab taste.

    Row 34 never disappoints and I didn't even get oysters or lobster this time. My dinner companion got the warm lobster roll and loved it; that was served with homemade chips. I ordered the redfish ceviche, which really was fabulous. It came with sweet potato chips. I also had a small salad and the clam chowder. It is one of my favorite places to eat - but going there on a semi-full stomach wasn't the best idea because I didn't order what I normally would have. Wonderful service and great food as always.

    Good selection of oysters and raw bar items. The smoked bbq fish was the best item. The seared tuna was disappointing. I didn't love the flavor combinations for the scallops and the monkfish but the crab campenelle was delicious and the wine options were reasonable and tasty. Overall I would come back but I would choose it for when I want light bites and rawbar only instead of dinner.

    Food terrific as always. When we arrived, however, we weren’t greeted warmly, or at all, for quite some time. The three people attending the hostess station were all preoccupied doing other things. Nobody said hello or let us know they’d be with us in just a minute. We just kind of stood there for what seemed like too long. We eventually were shown to our table, of course. But, the OpenTable reservation interface specifically asked whether we wanted a high top or a regular table. We chose high top, but were seated at a regular table. Dinner was great and our table service was very good. We were just disappointed to get off on the wrong foot.

    Staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. Food was really great. Seafood is expensive so there is no getting around that but feel the quality was top notch and totally worth it. Very cool vibe in the restaurant without any pretense. One suggestion would be to advertise that they do not have a full service bar. The bar tenders did an amazing job to accommodate us, however if a patron drinks something very specific they should know in advance. Overall, looking forward to my next trip to Boston to eat here!

    We arrived early and were easily accommodated then decided to sit at the bar. The staff made great suggestions and we met friendly people at the bar. The bar staff even communicated with the hostess that we were celebrating my husband’s birthday and brought us a cookie with ice cream and a candle. Our dishes were fantastic and could not be improved upon. All around great experience and would recommend.

    Visiting Boston from out of town for the first time and we landed on Row 34. The only available reservation was for 9:30, which didn't work with our packed itinerary. The staff was exceptional at getting us in early whether it was at the bar or a table. The waiter, Christian, provided us a fantastic time! We had oysters, calamari, salmon gravlax, and monkfish and the food was mind blowing. We would definitely recommend and would most certainly return if in the city again!

    I always have a great meal at Row 34. But twice I’ve made reservations and then had to wait an additional 35-60 minutes upon arrival. What’s the point of making a reservation?? The bar is extremely small too so we’re left awkwardly standing in the way. Their food is excellent but the experience is ruined by the wait.

    Row 34 just never disappoints. Between the drinks, food, and friendly service it is always a quality experience. The lettuce cups are a mainstay in our ordering and it is always fun to mix in a new dish. Loved bringing friends from out of town to get a good chowder. The drinks are unique and fun to try. Can’t recommend enough!
