We had a table for 6. The service was horrible. Very slow and had to be asked several times to take empty glasses and plates.

The service was great until our food arrived then everyone disappeared. Three of our party of four ordered the burritos. French fries in a burrito? Never heard of it and they obviously use it as a low cost filler because the chicken and steak in both burritos was nearly non-existent. The chicken was also nearly non-existent in the chicken tinga burrito, it was all rice. For $15 I expect some amount of protein for it to qualify as a meal. They may have a good bar scene, but the restaurant isn't worth it. Overpriced and mediocre.

I loved Scorpion Bar for my 22nd birthday , my waitress was extremely helpful with the menu and her service was wonderful. All the staff is super friendly and outgoing! Deff recommend this place to anyone wanting to enjoy a night out in Boston or for any special event. I would reserve again!

There were two of.is and we were sat immediately. Pretty dead for a Saturday night which was obvious to us by the end of the meal. We had Empanadas, chips and salsa, a variety of tacos and margaritas. The margaritas were terrible, when spending $14 on a drink I don’t expect that they will be using a Margarita mix. Food was ok....would have maybe been good if any of it was actually hot. The hottest item we got were the chips that came with our salsa. Literally everything else was cold. With tip spent $136, totally NOT worth it. Experience explains why restaurant was still nearly empty when we left.

The room was nearly empty. The service was slow at best. Server did not know the menu. When asked about ingredients she said the burrito had no lettuce and tomato of course it was served with lettuce and tomato.She also said it was served with rice and beans and of course they had to be ordered separately. We kept looking around for her to no avail.The food was standard Mexican dishes. Nothing special or Out of the ordinary. Seems like a good place if you want to sample 100 different tequilas.

Great food, great drinks, and great atmosphere! Been here both for date night and for group dinners, and it’s perfect for both.

Absolutely awful. Terrible service, each course was cold and tasteless. I’ve never written a review but felt compelled to let people know how terrible it was to save them from going

Food and atmosphere was good; the service was a bit slow even though the restaurant wasn’t that busy and server left all dirty plates on table until after we left.

Everything was well, until I was told it turns into a club so we had to rush the dinner :( ... over all, nice place to eat. Just choose a dinner at 6pm specially if its a big group

Great place in a great location. Service was decent, but could be a little better. Portion sizes were small for the price and not much selection, basically a choice of burrito with no sides, a small burrito bowl, tacos, fajitas.

Place was really cool especially the deck where we ate, food was good. Service may have been the worst I've ever had though. Wanted to get more drinks but waiter never came by so we decided just to leave. Had to find him to ask for the bill, then after 20 minutes had to find him again to hand him the bill to pay. He forgot my box so I had to find him again for the box. Also got my food and drink order wrong. If the service was good I'd give everything 5 stars because it was a sweet place but the service was just awful. I've never felt the need to leave a review for any restaurant on any site but the service was just that bad especially for the price of food and drink.

Disappointed. First time there and expected more from a place that has so many employees and Bouncers. Food was just ok. Table service was sub par. Drinks were good. disorganized staff and layout.

We went there to celebrate our anniversary. However, we waited half an hour to realize that they haven’t even served us water yet. The waiters knew that we were there, but didn’t even go over to offer water. We understand it was busy, but it was not that busy. They could have fixed the problem if they at least offered water and informed us that they will attend us shortly. Half an hour without being acknowledged is unacceptable. We ended up walking out and no one cared to stop us. They honestly didn’t care in having us there or not which is sad. Even the manager saw that we were waiting for so long and didn’t even care to attend us either. I would never recommend this place.

This is the worst place we have ever been in Boston. The food was disgusting, the drinks were horrible. Took one sip and couldn’t drink it. The margaritas we ordered were disgusting they tasted like a vodka sodas. Not to mention all our food came and we still had not gotten our drinks, and we had not gotten any water either. We couldn’t get our bill fast enough. Absolutely a classless dirty place. The bench we sat on was dirty. There are so many great places at the seaport Boston! This is not one of them. I actually never write reviews either but this place was horrible.

Despite running late for a reservation with a large party the management and staff were extremely flexible and welcoming! We enjoyed the music and drinks were delicious! Great place to celebrate birthdays or graduations. We didn't stay for the club but the music puts you in a party mood! Overall great experience!

Way too loud. Could not hear the server over the music and he could not hear us. Waited 20 minutes for drinks and they were wrong. Food service was worse. Would never go back.

Cool ambiance and good views of Seaport Blvd. That’s about all that’s good. Apps were ok, but tacos were way overpriced ($5-$7 for one) - even for the Seaport. Food potentially made some upset stomachs. Service was spotty - we had to ask for silverware and drink refills. Probably better as a bar than for dinner!

Though our server was not always present my buddy and I waited about 30 minutes for a beverage order and including another round of water it could be better with service being taken care of but the food served the justice it was a good spot to
Go to and loved it. Thank you Scorpion bar!!

Reservation for 9pm. $20 cash cover at door (not made clear when making reservation). At table, told to order quickly because kitchen closed at 10pm. Repeated order 3 times to waiter and still got chicken, not steak.

The food was not very good and the service was horrendous. Received food after 50 minutes of placing the order. Had a hard time flagging down any waiter because the music was very loud and they did not come and check on their customers.
