    3rd time I've been at Tano, still good. Just this time the pasta was not as fresh and HOT as the last time I had it. It was later dinner 9pm rsvp dinner came out around 930ish. So just hope the same live that happens at 7pm dinner time happens at 9-10pm.

    The space and the food were both AMAZING. The cioppino in particular was out-of-this-world: we've never seen it in that tomato/onion agrodolce treatment, which was perfect against the richness of the shellfish. The wedge and steak tips were also far beyond reproach. Ditto the Manhattans. The only knock is that the noise level limited intimate conversation. But overall, far above expectation for a hotel restaurant. We both felt very happy to spend the evening with you!

    Food was mediocre at best. We thought we were going to have a nice dinner in town but we ended up eating in make shift hotel lobby. Service was poor and we had to ask server if we could place order for apps, drinks and dinner.

    The food was just okay. I treated myself to the lobster roll and the roll was clearly burned and they scraped off the burned part. Disappointed.

    Seating was very comfortable and noise level was low enough to have a conversation with friends. Server was inexperienced with the menu. We enjoyed our cocktails, but the food was uneven in quality. The baked scallops were ok but not particularly good while the chicken was quite good.

    Right down the middle food-wise. Pretty average across the board. I'd recommend it if you were staying in that hotel, but there's just so much food in Boston that I'd give five stars to that I wouldn't bother elsewise.

    Based on the previous reviews we were hoping this would be a special meal for a friends reunion. This turned out to be a very average/below average “hotel restaurant” meal. The appetizers were all microwave defrosts, the mains lacked any taste, the waitress (otherwise lovely) couldn’t answer what the stuffed salmon was stuffed with. There are so many great places to eat in Boston, even the Seaport…this isn’t one of them and I wish the OpenTable rating better reflected that so I wouldn’t have made a reservation here.

    Waiter was awesome. We asked to have the olives on the side with our nachos and they did that but they forget to bring out the salsa, sour cream, guacamole? We expected it on the nachos as described in the menu. Maybe they thought we wanted those on the side too like the olives? By the time the toppings arrived so did the food. The nachos were comped without asking. The drinks were fun, unique, and yummy!

    There was a wedding in the hotel and the guests were between events and crowded into the bar and restaurant. We had asked for an outdoor table on our reservation request but when we arrived we were told they only served drinks on the patio. When we expressed our concern about dining in a crowded restaurant due to Covid, the hostess set us up in a quiet part of the lobby, set the table for us there, and waited on us herself. She couldn't have been more accommodating. The food was quite good an once the wedding crowd went to their reception, the ambiance in the lobby was lovely. The hostess turned what could have been a very unpleasant dinner into a lovely evening for us.

    Be aware that this restuarant automatically adds on an 18% gratuity, no matter the number of guests. We arrived at the restaurant and had to wait 10 minutes to be seated, the hostess was off finding someone’s take out order, The food came out lukewarm, my husband and I shared the clam chowder and a scallop entree. When both arrived we mentioned our plan was to share and was hoping (at the very least) for an extra plate, which we didn’t receive. The waiter never came back over to see how things were, had he I would’ve asked if the food could be warmed up. When the check came and if included the 18% gratuity I contested it and adjusted the tip to a more appropriate amount. The waiter still received 15%, I know they depend on tips but 18% is what I would give for very good service, which we did not receive.

    Food was good, space was nice, but the service was terrible. It took 15 minutes to receive our drinks and 45 minutes to receive our dinner. Our server never checked in with us throughout the evening, as we sat with empty glasses during our meal. A food runner brought out our dinner, so our server never interacted with us after they took our order.

    We were seated promptly for our reservation, and put into the bar area...that was good for us. No one came over to our table to ask if we wanted drinks within 10-15 minutes, so we had to go up to the bar ourselves...not a big deal to us....waiter finally came over and we ordered....food was good; pizza & wings...You could tell they were struggling with lack of help, but overall it was good

    We went for the menu shown on their web site. 1/2 the items we had interest in were not on the restaurant’s menu. We should have known when they charged a mandatory 18% gratuity for two drinks at the bar- for a good reason- we would have left no tip for our meal. Food was plain tasting, took forever to be served, and my wife ended up with a salad and something off the children’s menu because there was little that looked appealing to her. I felt sorry for the staff- not their fault, just really bad management. Do not recommend!

    It was over 30 minutes before anybody greeted us and that was after we got up twice to ask where our server was. We waited another 45 minutes for our food and one of the dishes wasn’t even cooked. We had to go to a concert so one of us shared our dish with the other. Even after comping our drinks, the bill didn’t add up to the quality of food. Never again would I go to this restaurant.

    Thai mussels were perfectly prepared. Fried sugar snap peas -- very interesting. Floor to ceiling windows are not really "harbor view" since restaurant is street level; more like Seaport Blvd view with some glimpses of harbor in the background.

    We were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of service and food here! We were at the Seaport Hotel for a concert at the pavilion and had a meal at the bar. The quesadilla app was excellent and my lobster roll was really great, lots of lobster meat and very flavorable. Generous wine pours and the bartenders were efficient and friendly. Recommend!

    We were delighted with this restaurant and will definitely return. Location is great and convenient to Leader Bank Pavilion for concerts. Service was a bit slow, but the hostess and waitress made every effort to get us served quickly as we were attending concert. We chose items from the menu that wouldn't take long to prepare and were served in a timely manner. Very pleased with everything.

    Service was friendly and patrons were cheerful. Service was slow, although we understood everyone is having staffing problems. Our two main dishes were a problem. The large nachos plate was primarily dry corn chips, with a little cheese, some unattractive clumps of meat, and no flavor. After we finished the chips that had at least cheese on them, we had a whole plate of dry chips. The salad was just edible, not attractive or interesting.
