Beer selection and beers we drank were, of course, exceptional. Smoked platter and lobster wonderful. Fried clams and oysters..........sad. Totally over-fried. :(

We had a wonderful experience again at Row 34. Went there in 2019 to celebrate our daughter’s college graduation and couldn’t wait to go back on this visit to Boston! Peter, our server, was personable, informative and engaging. Will definitely ask for him again! Of course, the food did not disappoint.

We had a wonderful meal celebrating our anniversary at Row 34. Our server was attentive and sweetly treated us to a dessert and some champagne for our special night. Totally unexpected and very much appreciated! The oysters, peach & burrata salad, and sea scallops were standouts of our meal, but everything was delicious.

The food and atmosphere were fabulous. Our server was very knowledgeable and made some good recommendations but forgot to bring a beer from the cellar she described so well and then took forever getting my oysters out with the entree. Seemed obvious that she forgot to drop the order at the same time as our other entrees. Would have been fine with a simple “sorry for the delay” but to act like it wasn’t a problem when everyone else at the table was finished with their entrees was bad form. Otherwise an amazing experience.

We had an amazing time at an anniversary dinner. Our waiter was superb. The staff even brought us complimentary dessert and port wine because I had indicated "anniversary" on my Open Table reservation. Very nice touch! We will be back many times.

Outstanding! Our Father’s Day dinner at Row 34 was above and beyond our expectations. The staff is fantastic-knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating. Every dish was perfectly cooked and arrived piping hot-not easy with different varieties of fish😊. Highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for excellent seafood and a fun experience!

The oysters may be the best I have had, from the fried to raw bar! Service was excellent with a very attentive server. The atmosphere is amazing and can be enjoyed during the day and into evening with a causal vibe. Date night would be perfect here. The only disappointment was the crab cake - tasty but didn’t have the lump crab meat like I expected. Otherwise I would give this the top rating !
