We’re Row 34. If we could eat oysters and drink beer for every meal period, we probably would. Professionals Only.

Our menu changes daily. Visit our website to take a look at our most up to date menus.

Row 34 serves up a seafood-heavy menu in an industrial-inspired setting. Chef/Owner Jeremy Sewall's menu offers fish entrees and an extensive oyster selection, along with craft beers and an eclectic wine list. Classic comfort food side dishes round out the menu.

Due to recent mandates, Boston requires all guests to wear a mask indoors.

Food was delicious as always. Our service was very bad though. We had to ask the guy who delivered our food to get our waitress for wine and she came over angrily asking what we wanted. Was not impressed.

It was a dining experience just as fabulous as always! From the curated cocktail to the freshest oysters in town and a lobster roll that made me wonderfully happy. I was completely content. My husband raved about the NE IPA and the salt cod entree, his oysters were also perfectly enjoyable! Row 34 is a place we visit often because it's awesome EVERY time.

We had a great dinner! 4 stars only because the lobster roll wasn’t as amazing as I wanted it to be… but maybe I just had unreasonably high expectations

Warm butter lobster roll was excellent. The oysters were delicious, but was dropped off at the table and no one bothered to tell us which ones were which as we ordered 4 types. Brussels Sprouts were not a hit. Ambiance was lovely. I think it was way overpriced. It was good to experience once, but not some place I'd go back.

Row 34 is (in my opinion) the best restaurant in Boston. The oysters are always amazing, the tuna crudo is delicious, and the overall menu is fantastic. The service is always top notch. I would highly recommend Row 34 to anyone!

Tuna Crudo was very good. My Lobster was rubbery and over cooked but the meal had a lot of flavor.

After perfectly shucked oysters and ceviche from the raw bar, the mains were a disappointment with over cooked lobster, some shells in the lobster roll, and undercooked parsnips and sunchokes with the salmon dish. Lobster roll should be advertised as “half the lobster, twice the price.”

Oysters were phenomenal, especially the mookie blue and island creek. Monkfish dish was pretty good, but a little too salty.

Our favorite restaurant that we went to while in Boston! The space is contemporary and cool, the ambiance is lively, the food is delicious, and the gin drink was the best I've ever had. We will be back and will happily recommend to others!

We had been to Island Creek in Kenmore Square several times and expected something similar here. Although we enjoyed our experience, and the food, service, and atmosphere were solid, there was nothing particularly memorable.

Love. Always. Oysters. Wine. Everything. And to our surprise: the French fries were the best my partner has ever had. So, again, everything.
