    Our lead server was excellent and the wine list was equally impressive. They did, however, rush our visit - bringing entrees almost simultaneously with the appetizers. And, they had managing staff surveilling and regularly walking through the room with their iPads, marking how long guests were at tables and how quickly they were being turned over. I understand this is common practice in a lot of restaurants, but this was obvious to the point of intrusive. You want to feel comfortable eating your meal, not as if you're in an Orwellian state. On the food: fried oysters, burrata and beets were all top-notch. The naked lobster rolls unfortunately had some overcooked and rubbery meat. When you got a bite of the beautiful brioche bun and properly cooked meat, it was really quite good. Just needed more consistency.

    Arrogant condescending manager refused to validate our parking as the ticket was marked 4:58 and the manager claimed they don’t validate before 5:00. The website clearly states they validate after 4:30 on Saturday and Sunday. What a jerk!! Long time customers who are now former customers.

    Very good place. Didn’t go with their “native” dishes like raw oysters or lobster rolls. We both had fish and chips. We both liked it. Great and and friendly service. Not an expensive place. Although we both agreed that food was good - probably one of the best fish&chip meals - the price is a bit too high for lunch. Overall a very positive experience and would love to return for dinner. The place is very casual, so I’d return for a regular non-special occasion meal.

    The service and restaurant itself were pleasant. The food was just ‘ok’ taste-wise; I was shocked by the prices, given the small portion sizes. I’d always heard good things about Row 34 - but will probably not return given the cost for the size of the portions and quality we received.

    We notified the restaurant we were on our honeymoon and though we did get a free dessert- the table we were sat at was horrible. Food was ok but in Boston we have had better. The noise level was too much. This place was recommended but We cant imagine who would find it a good spot due to noise and what we considered lack of ambiance. The service was good but seeing as we were sat next to the serving station I expected that at least. Overall we would not recommend!

    We came for a lunch on Sunday. Food was delicious, we enjoyed raw bar, and several entrees. Everything was well seasoned, fresh, and thoughtful. It was pricey but quality was really top notch, and everything is expensive these days. We will definitely come back again.

    I will say that this place matches my expectations every time we come. This is my first actual reservation made as before we just showed up and just to speak on this lightly, the host (who dressed a bit more like a manager…maybe) took forever to seat us and was very non personable. We sat from there and the server was absolutely great, from start to finish. We came in for a light lunch and got the oysters and hamachi crudo which were amazing. We planned on getting the lobster roll but hearing that it was 49$ and only served with 4oz’s of lobster meat threw me off completely. Being a chef in the industry for a few years and knowing that prices are outrageous these days I and my wife (a server) are fully respectful and understanding of situations such as these but 49$ for again…….4oz’s…..I’m sorry but this is absolutely ridiculous. We’ve enjoyed your lobster roll twice coming to Boston for our so called “food tour vacation” lol and will hands down put you guys at the top of the list for the best one here…that being said…there was no chance I was ordering a technical sandwich for 50$ with minimal lobster on it. All of this being said I think you guys should have someone look into the pricing. Good coat works in both directions, you win most you lose on some. The lobster roll should by now means be that price with that amount. If there was more on it I would’ve enjoyed the H*^! Out of it but no not this time. Thank you and don’t think we won’t be back but just some constructive criticism Thanks again for doing what you do

    We enjoyed our food and service very much!! We had a few of the raw bar starters, followed by the halibut collar for two for our entree. It was all delicious, but my favorite was the cured salmon for the starter. Our server was excellent!! (Can’t remember her name, but she had a long ponytail and Tattoos on both arms). She was very good at her job and made the experience great!

    If you can - eat inside. We arrived for outside seating and found the space to be loud (passing traffic) and smelly (overwhelmingly defecating type smell.. smelly). We had a hard time just sitting with the smell let alone eating in the smelly environment. It was a shame. We were looking forward to eating here but we had to leave. Things happen and I don't want to speak badly of any establishment but they really didn't seem to care that we had a problem and were leaving. The waiter never came to the table after 10 minutes (maybe he couldn't handle the smell) and when I told the hostess of the problem she basically didn't care. Shame.
