We had a reservation at 8:15pm and were not seated until 8:35. Service was incredibly slow and the waitress at the bar and our table seemed like she did not want to serve us or be there at all. We’ve been here a few times before and the service was never this awful

The seating went well -waited about 10 minutes w/reservation. Nice atmosphere. The food was good but portions compared to price were quite unbalanced. I would not go back.

I had forgotten how good a restaurant Rabia's is, since I had not been there for a while. I won't wait so long to go back again.

I am celiac and got the Lobster Risotto and it was PHENOMENAL! The staff was really kind. I was kind of shocked, we went on a weekend and it was surprisingly not packed. They also have gluten free pasta which I was super pumped about. They have a TON of options and they have lobster alive in the restaurant and my friend from out of town got really excited about that. I love this place, I want to keep going over and over again, it is so delicious and definitely a hidden gem!!

We love Rabia and go every time when in Boston. The grilled squid appetizer is our favorite.

I've said this before: Each time I go to Rabia's it's better than the last visit. My companion arrived first, 15 minutes early, (7:15), but was seated right away. You know how you go to a restaurant and you want it to be everything you said it would be? That's Rabia's. The service was thoughtful, the meal was excellent, and afterward to strolled around the North End. What's not to love.

Rabias will always be my favorite north end spot. The seafood dishes are unmatched amywhere else. I came here for the first time on a trip to Boston 4 years ago and have continued coming back ever since.

I have never been to this restaurant before. We went with a group of eight people. The waiter was not friendly at all. The average meal on the menu is $23 the specials did not have any price. We all ordered specials and then asked the special meal prices and were told they were $45-$65 and a special appetizers with $30. We did end up changing our order to order off the regular menu but very very turned off that they did not have prices on the special menu. Will never go back

Service was unfriendly and inattentive. Food was spotty - my husband's chicken francese was delicious, but my chicken piccata was tough and inedible. I would avoid this restaurant if you have kids in tow. There is no kids menu (not a problem, I just wish I'd known in advance) and the menu makes ordering for kids a bit difficult (ravioli is made with smoked mozzarella, which was not a big hit with my kids). The waiter never offered a wine menu and never checked on us once he took the order. I would try somewhere else next time and would recommend the same to others. They do take reservations, which is nice for the North End.
