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.

Birthday lunch. The restaurant recognized our birthday guest with a small complimentary dessert with a candle - extremely thoughtful. Bright room with great energy. Food variety and quality outstanding!

Outstanding salads, burrata toast and shrimp risotto. Scallops (3 tiny bay scallops) and gnocchi disappointing. Loud and energetic atmosphere for a Tuesday

For what you are getting this place over priced, for example, 22 bucks for three over cooked scallops. We left the restaurant and went next door to eat because everyone in party was still hungry. The services was slow and not the best. The waiter allowed bottle opening to touch the rim of our water glasses, fortunately no was sick but that's quick way to spared a virus or something. Overall don't waste your time or money on this place.

We chose Trade because we never have tried small plates concept and a restaurant owned by a chef. Plus had great reviews on yelp and google and we looooove Greek food. It was our 16th wedding anniversary evening. When we came in we felt a warm atmosphere and instantly fel in love with the dim
Lighting and the view of Boston roads. Our server was exceptional and explained everything to us patiently. Hummus with pita was delicious. Lamp chop and rib eye was mouth watering and we enjoyed it every bit. Would recommend it to anyone who likes small plates concept. We would recommend it anytime.

Great food, but small portions. Service was friendly but suboptimal - slow, we sat for quite a while with empty plates and empty glasses and no server in sight. They seemed to be short-handed, or at least our server seemed overloaded and not able to provide sufficient attention.

Unfortunately it was about the worst chowder I have ever had. It was lukewarm and tasted more like leftover creamed onions than clam chowder. As a rule, I don’t comment - good or bad; but I will not order their chowder again. The burgers, however, are awesome!

The food was excellent, but the service was very, very slow. It was 15 minutes after being seated before we were greeted and given water, 23 minutes until we had our first drink, and 45 minutes before our appetizer order was taken. Fortunately we were not really hungry and had time to spare. The entire experience took nearly 3 hours.

First visit to Trade and it exceeded all expectations. Welcoming from first minute in, great service from Marisol. The more time we spent, the more we appreciated the wonderful design and concept by Jody Adams. Food was outstanding, the Halibut was hands down the best piece of fish I’ve had in recent memory. Will be back soon.

We enjoyed our most recent visit to Trade. We arrived with luggage which the front staff graciously stored for us. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable and the service was prompt. Our food was excellent. I was particularly impressed with the roasted beet salad which was full of delicious chunks of beet. My Arctic char was slightly undercooked despite my request for ‘medium’ but this was a small matter. We had an excellent experience here and will return.

The food was pretty good overall. Service wasn't the best and we ended with a hair in our desert. This was our second time dining in with a gift card from a previous experience because we had issues before too. The over ambience and vibe is great though.

Ironic that most portions came with three of what ever and we were a table of three, yet the price doesn't change.

Pasta on the butternut squash ravioli was not cooked or overly undercooked at best, dough like. Scallopes were great. I'm forgetting what the peanut sauce came with, but it was not a combination (in my opinion) that works, almost awful. The other dishes we had were great. A serving utensils would be nice with a number of these dishes, we were each using our own forks and knifes.

The round table behind the entrance is very exposed for three people, it would have been fine if we were 6 people.

I gave you a fair amount of negative feedback, but overall dinner was enjoyable.
