We tend to be skeptical of hotel restaurants, as so many serve, overpriced, mediocre food, but this place was a wonderful surprise. We ate dinner here both nights of our stay. Food was delicious and reasonably priced, atmosphere was warm and inviting, and service was friendly and on point.

Tamo’s dining room is timeless. It reminds me of an elegant room from the 50’s, but modern, spacious, and sleek for today as well. The tagliatelle bolognese was especially delicious with perfect pasta. Prices are more reasonable than most places in the neighborhood. Excellent, helpful, and warm service.

Tamo didn’t disappoint. My family and I are staying at the Renaissance. Ventured across the street to Tamo.
The food was unexpectedly really good.
The burger was fantastic—grilled brioche bun, hand formed patty. Kids chicken fingers and fries were very good.
Steak tips were very flavorful and the salad was crisp and tasty.
Great ambiance and great experience.
I’m a frequent business traveler and I dine all over the country—Tamo is a great find.

This may have been the worst service I’ve ever had in my life. Our reservation was at 7:15 and our waiter didn’t come over to introduce himself or take our order until well after 8. I understand being under staffed but under no circumstance should it take an hour to have our first interaction with our server. He didn’t even apologize for the delay. The service didn’t get any better as it would be 30 minutes + from when we ordered a drink to when we received them. We actually got up and went to the bar to get a drink mid meal at one point the service was so slow. Honestly it was embarrassing to see the restaurant was operated so poorly and they didn’t even acknowledge there was anything wrong. Would not recommend.

They do not have a wine list on their menu. When we asked staff, they did not know wine names or prices, only that it was a Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, a Merlot etc. We ordered New England steamers & they were out of them at 6:15 pm! So we had the worst loaded nachos ever. We did speak to the manager regarding no wine list & he had a totally lame excuse. I would never recommend this restaurant & there are certainly many choices folks can make in Seaport Boston area.

Our service was wonderful but the food was disappointing. Drinks were very sweet and not worth the price point. A very lackluster experience for a $200 bill.

The host was not at the station when we arrived and had to wait for a while; a server noticed us and sat us down. Had a great dinner and our server(aka acting host) was wonderful and conscientious of our time constraint. Will definitely dine there again.

I had a pretty good time! We saw a lot of dogs that passed by, had drinks that were either a little too strong or not mixed with the right proportions, and the fried avocados and chicken quesadillas hit the mood on the dot.

1. Got a drink and there was red lipstick on the rim.
2. Loaded nachos app were requested to just have cheese on them (and nothing else), but received everything on it.
3. A waiter (not our regular one) cleared drinks from one of our tables when the 3 kids got up to use the restroom.
4. Waiter said the system wouldn't allow him to split the bill on different credit cards, but later figured it out with a fellow employee.

No compensation/deductions made for any of these issues

The Seaport Hotel has a wonderful restaurant that
has a nice atmosphere, comfortable furniture and a distinctively delicious menu of pasta, meat, and seafood entrees. It’s become one of our family favorite restaurants. The TAMO Bistro is pure class and elegance. The wait staff are welcoming, friendly and personable too!

The food is alright and the service is awful. The waiter charged us for another table’s dinner as well as our own and rushed us out of the restaurant after having told us that we would have plenty of time to eat. It was very difficult to have the charge corrected by the establishment and the staff acted like I was lying.

Would not return. It’s a hotel restaurant that is very well marketed with the photos on open table. We got the charcuterie board (does not come with cheese) and steak tips (would not recommend). Also, the cocktails were not well prepared.
