The staff took every step to make you feel safe and yet comfortable during these trying times.
Food was executed perfectly.
Heard the hype of row 34 for a while now. Tried it out and was a little disappointed. The crab cake was amazing, but the cocktails were brutal. The clams and pasta was pretty sub par. The Brussels sprouts and salmon was ok could have cooked the Brussels more
Always amazing. Our favorite restaurant in Boston.
Great date night spot! Food was excellent and the lobster roll might be the best we’ve ever had.
The food selection needs to be expanded and they should also serve spirits and just not beer and wine. The Boston seafood restaurants is competitive and so this restaurant ranks below the others. Positive notes is that the waitress was nice and the atmosphere was decent.
Despite reduced COVID seating with a quieter atmosphere than usual, the staff made it a fun night out with a positive and enthusiastic vibe. Excellent food and service as always. Let’s keep supporting our restaurants!!!
great food! oysters are so fresh!! must try lobster roll!!
The seafood was really fresh and delicious! Some of the dishes lacked seasoning and we ended up having to season the lobster risotto ourselves. Overall, great food and a great place for raw bar.
After hearing from locals I thought this place would be more than what it was. Food was the worst I’ve had in Boston and the service could have been better. I wouldn’t come back, but I appreciate the surrounding area to walk around and enjoy! The reviews are very overrated compared to the place.
Fantastic tuna crudo, excellent mussels, tasty oysters, and the best Brussels sprouts we’ve ever had!
Always great food and service! Our go to place any day
Always a great meal, love the oyster selection. Servers are top notch.
Three of us went to dinner Saturday night - the food was outstanding! Did not seem impacted by COVID at all. Everything we had was great - we shared the fish tacos which were amazing.
The service was good, a little bit slow but that was ok as we didn't want to rush out. Due to COVID very few people in the restaurant so it definitely felt different. But the same great experience as we used to have! And they still have the cornbread with maple butter, which I describe as the best food I've ever eaten. And excellent craft beers, including IPAs from Lone Pine and Brick & Feather. So an excellent dinner all around!
It was the first time my mom met my fiancée and this was the perfect place for us to break bread and the two of them get to know each other. It was a glorious weekend over lobster rolls and Row 34 fries!!!
OUTSTANDING FOOD FOR A GREAT PRICE! SERVICE WAS ALSO GREAT! We ate all over Boston including fine dining, and this was by far, our best dining option! Best and cleanest oysters in the city, clam chowder was a grand slam and the warm lobster roll..... WOW! We loved it so much we went back twice!
What I love about Row 34 is the consistency of the quality of food and service by the restaurant. In today’s world that is an achievement that doesn’t go unnoticed!
It's pricey, but one of the best lobster rolls ever! Raw Bar is outstanding as well. If you love seafood, you will love it here.
Food was Amazing! Taylor picked a great beer for my husband and I. She helped us pick our food. Everything was Fantastic ! Will definitely return!
Food looked nice but didn’t taste particularly good. Trendy look but curt service.
Row 34 consistently delivers some of the best seafood in Boston. The best lobster roll in the city and the nicest, most well-shucked oysters. Very nice heated patio seating during COVID.
Best oysters in town, amazing crudo/ceviche, stellar food overall
Everything was great!
Wonderful. Wow the oysters were fresh. Wonderful staff.
ROW34 is our favorite spot in the city. The food is always consistent and exceptional. The service is outstanding. We consider them an extension of our family and we are happy to be able to support them as frequently as possible!
I had a fantastic recent experience at row 34. All of the food was perfectly cooked with amazing presentation. Fresh, well shucked oysters. Flavorful tuna tartare. Always love the wine and beer list as well. The creme filled cider donuts were also a nice finish to the meal -full of flavor and not too sweet.
The bartender (turned server due to Covid) was also extrememly friendly and attentive.
Everything about this place was fantastic! It was nicely socially distanced which made me feel safe. The waitress was so much fun, she created such an enjoyable atmosphere. Lastly, the food was phenomenal. The warm buttered lobster rolls were some of the best I have ever had. The bread was toasted to perfection, the rolls were filled with the perfect amount of butter, and lastly, they stuffed the roll with a generous amount of lobster. Overall I could not recommend this place enough!
Service was absolutely incredible! Samantha our waitress was beyond kind and so well informed on every detail even the % of alcohol in beer(lol). She treated us like family. The food was delicious the fish pate and the crudos were great.
I would pass on the oysters believe it or not. The scallops were delicious. It was over all amazing.
Food was excellent! You can’t go wrong with anything you pick. Great for a date night spot or friends night out. Highly recommend checking this place out!
Service was outstanding! Drinks were delicious as was the food. I will be returning.
Being a big fan of Row 34 in both your Portsmouth and Boston locations, I decided to take my boyfriend on a special occasion date for hitting his yearly sales number (where his manager would normally bring him if things were normal). Anyway, we ordered a bunch of our favorite apps and drinks to celebrate and as much as I still love the foot and vibes of Row 34, I was very put back with my last experience. My waiter (who at first appeared to be very nice and on to of things, shorter bald guy that moves very quickly) he forgot 2 of our 4 apps that were sitting on top of the seafood bar for 35 minutes. We didn’t want to be rude nor grab them ourselves so we politely reminded him after finally flagging him down. I watched him fully realize what he had done and that he completely forgot our apps (for a significant amount of time) and there wasn’t even a single apology spoken but the check afterwards. This was extremely distasteful in any scenario, but especially for the level of excellence I typically experience with you guys.
Perfect,as always. This place is the best!
I love this place. The staff and food are always great. And they are taking all the protocols serious.
As always a great experience. Love the atmosphere, food, service and beer list.
Extremely accommodating as it was some of the new moms first night at a restaurant since the pandemic which was well deserved, they made sure we had a patio table even though it couldn’t be guratneed everything was timely and delicious and the wine recommendation was phenomenal (we had 3 of them). Again since they hadn’t been out in a very long time we over stayed our 90min window but when we asked they were very pleasant and since you were not extremely busy at that point (were getting busy) they let us stay for more wine :)
Very good experience! Food was good. Service was smooth. Great ambiance!
Excellent service! We ordered the seafood tower which was amazing, fresh and quite filling! Followed by the tuna ceviche which was excellent! For dessert we had the butterscotch pudding, yum! We felt very safe inside the restaurant as the tables are appropriately socially distant.
The staff was diligent with Covid protocols while making us feel safe and relaxed. Service was amazing and food incredible.
I give the team lots of credit in balancing all the new protocols while still making sure you are enjoying your experience.
There were so many things wrong with this experience: Host who sat us never spoke to us, sat us at a poorly located table and we had to ask to be moved because it was by an open door in an heavily traveled path (other groups also asked to be moved from same table), service was incredibly slow with no explanation as it wasn't busy, waitress couldn't answer question about menu items and didn't seem to care, food was mediocre and not seasoned correctly - this is a seafood based place and my salmon was over cooked and bland. The setting is very industrial and cold - nothing inviting about it. I will give them credit for good beer selection (not my thing but my dining partners ). Based on the above I wouldn't return or recommend.
Best clam pasta ever! I wanted to order pick up of same next night. The heat lamps on the patio did the trick. This is one of our favorite places in Fort Point/Seaport.
