Mediterranean
TRADE opened it's doors in 2011 with a very simple and effective approach:
great atmosphere, great service, great food.

Our James Beard Award Winning Chef, Jody Adams, partnered with Eric Papachristos and Sean Griffing to bring an upscale casual restaurant & bar to Atlantic Wharf. Guests enjoy small plates and shareables, wood-stone oven flatbreads, creative cocktails and more - all featuring bold flavors inspired by our team's travels. Untethered to just one cuisine, we offer a variety of tastes reminiscent of the coastal Mediterranean prepared using locally sourced ingredients.

TRADE features an unparalleled atmosphere with floor to ceiling windows showcasing views of the Greenway. Our bright, energetic lunch service transitions to a sleek and sexy scene in the evenings for cocktails and dinner; reflecting our location on the edge of the Financial District and the Seaport District.

Even though on the high side of price, the food was delicious and just right portion size. Would definitely recommend.

I would recommend the food for two... however, we were a group of 9 and were basically ignored for hours. What food we were served was outstanding but the services was awful. We ordered $600 worth of food and never received several dishes (tapas style). We were mostly ignored and our waitress was among the missing most of the night. I had to look for someone to pay for 15 minutes. We were there so long we didn't want to take more time to debate the check for all the items we did not receive and just paid so we could leave. They dimmed the lights shortly after we arrived and it was actually dark and the music was booming. Not a good experience at all which was too bad because the food was delicious (if you get it).

Alex our waitress was fabulous, we were a big party and were all served at the same time. Food was hot and delicious as were the drinks!

Great setting for a work lunch. I am obsessed with the tuna poke bowl -- gluten free version.

We loved all of the small plates we ordered and the server's recommendation for how many would be good for two people was spot on. Everything was delicious and we left feeling full but not stuffed.

The items we tried were fresh and delicious— we had the fried chicken with watermelon and feta and the panzanella with heirloom tomatoes and lemon oregano dressing. They were incredibly good!

Interesting menu with delicious food that is cooked to perfection. I'm still daydreaming about the hummus appetizer and falafel sandwich. Good space, conveniently located, good value, and top service.

We went on a Thursday evening at 6:00pm and we ordered our cocktails and food at the same time. Our food came out very quickly but our cocktails didn't arrive until we were almost finished with our food, and then one of the cocktails was incorrect. Our server never came to see how the food/cocktails were (other servers delivered them to our table) so we had to flag him down from across the room to get the correct cocktail. We would have stayed longer and had another round or two of drinks, but he never came back to the table. A different server brought us our check when she saw or cards sitting out on the table.

Really nice! A little bummed at first that upon arriving, the waiter listed several foods/drinks that were no longer available. But better to know this early on.
Otherwise, the food our group ordered was on point. Tasty and varied menu. Please note that the dishes are tapas-style so 2 per person was recommended. Nice ambience out on the patio as well.

Trade is one of my go-to restaurants in Boston. Love the atmosphere and range of flavors. Went there for my boyfriend's birthday. Sat at the counter, which we love. Service was impeccable. Most dishes were excellent. Some were very good. We still have a few that we didn't get to, so we'll have to hit those on the next round!

Solid, very good place for lunch in the fin district. Seated immediately for our 12PM reservation. Classy joint and the Med style food was so, so, so good. Our waiter was very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Have eaten here a dozen times and will definitely be back.

It’s always a perfect experience, and I go a LOT! From the moment we step in, Sari helps us out and is always a pleasure to talk to. Nanard and Melissa are always our waiter/waitress and each is fantastic. We all love the food, service, and every single person that works there- plus it’s a beautiful place inside and outside.

Energetic is an interesting way of saying the room was VERY loud. Food was good, service, Meh.
Busser was more helpful than waiter.

Trade isn’t fine-dining yet somehow the food is cheaper at Menton.

The Ribeye Calotte had 4oz of meat with literally 1.5 fingerling potatoes for $22. This wasn’t Wagyu and there were no hipster gastronomy tricks to attempt to justify it.

The Freekah and Tartare we’re substantially smaller than they previous trips as well. The coconut yogurt nowhere to be found. How does a line cook forget what’s in a dish? How does a chef not notice?

The Spaghetti and Crab may have been good - I wouldn’t know because Trade was all out at 7pm. It’s always a bit ironic when a restaurant abutting the ocean can’t order an appropriate amount of seafood or call their vender to rush more.

Two small people spent $100 and left hungry. Are guests supposed to fill up on dessert? I left for Duexave instead of taking my chances finding out.

The noise, drinks and ambiance are all slightly redeeming but that’s likely the result of the restaurant never seeming to be full. I can’t imagine how cutting the portion sizes by 75% and keeping the prices the exact same is going to draw more reservations.

Great food, our waiter was very slow and inattentive. We ended up flagging down another server half the time to help us. Not somewhere you go for a great value for your dollar but hey that’s the city.

There were four of us and we tried 8 different dishes and the food was outstanding. There's enough variety for any palate. Our server was Nenad and he was exceptionally professional and friendly. We'll be back and would recommend it to anyone.

Food was just OK. Best item was baby kale salad, which isn’t a great indicator. Octopus was better than average. Shrimp dish was not good at all. Service was slow as molasses. Trade is also very loud. I have had good lunches here but I wouldn’t go back for dinner.

Nice location, service was slow, the flat bread entrees had lots of bread with minimal toppings and were a bit dry. I had the falafel wrap and it too was bready and a bit dry, but otherwise tasty. The hummus was great.

Do not recommend for large groups. We specifically asked that kids eat first but our adult apps came out while they waited for their entrées. Drink service was slow and food was sub par. Way too expensive for value and quality of food delivered. Do not recommend!

Limited menu choices and traffic is a bit annoying if you choose to sit outside as we did. Our waiter was wonderful though.
