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.

Terrible service didn't wipe table or offer waters. Gave take-home bag (no box) while still eating. 18% tip already in the bill maybe explains

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.

My boyfriend and I came over Valentine’s weekend. We booked Tamo last minute and ended up loving it! Our server was had such a great personality and was super helpful and funny. I didn’t ask his name - tried to look at his name tag I think it was Devin? The espresso martinis and avocado fries were so good.

Well our server was great very attentive friendly great vibe. We ordered steak and pasta they didn't have a steak knife. They had 3 people looking for one in the whole restaurant. The food was okay the steak was chewy and some of them were uncooked we ordered medium well.A gentleman was cleaning a table and sprayed my husband with the cleaning product on his head and said "sorry it's just sanitizer." We laughed it off but if we had food on our table that would have been a problem. The drinks were good and the overall experience was okay.

I made reservations about two weeks ago. I got to the restaurant and it was closed.. I was not informed that their hours and day of services had changed! We got there it was freezing outside and had to make reservations elsewhere last minute for a birthday! Very disappointing to say the least!

Recent dinner during Covid was outstanding. Delicious food all around for our party of three. Atmosphere was quiet, quaint, comfortably fitted with two inviting fireplaces... and we couldn't be happier with all of the safety measures that staff and management employ. Kudos to our waiter. A delightful and comforting representative of such a fine establishment.

We enjoyed the friendly, excellent service and the good food, nice drink menu, all at reasonable prices. Very nice ambiance. Will return and happy to recommend. The Seaport is the best destination in Aniston these days and this place is just a perfect drop-in for not-too-fussy food.

I decided to make reservation at this restaurant a week ago because we were staying at the Seaport to celebrate my daughters birthday. We were a party of 5 and they sat us down in couches with a coffee table. I had them change our table. How can you eat on a coffee table. No apologies. It took 15 minutes to even take our drink order and took forever to get get our food. The steak was good. The chicken sandwich had no taste and it was buffalo. The drinks had no alcohol. It's an expensive restaurant. I just expected more. At least kindness. I'm not a picky person and never complain. We couldn't wait to leave.

I feel like the reviews and photos were very misleading. This was simply a classic hotel restaurant and bar- nothing special. $14 cocktails were watered down. Our server was very kind and attentive, the only positive thing about the experience really. I really wouldn’t recommend going here unless you’re staying in the hotel and need a quick drink and bite

Years ago Tamo used to have a great outdoor area
That is no longer the case
We booked thinking that it was

We ate there anyway since we were very hungry and Saturday on a gorgeous night in the Seaport area is hard to book

All that said we were pleasantly surprised to have a delicious meal at this hotel restaurant

The food was delicious
I opted for the Dine Out Boston menu charcuterie scallops and molten chocolate chicken
Good value for $33

My daughter-in-law had the grilled avocado as an appetizer (this was THE BEST!!) and wedge salad with sirloin steak added
