    I ordered the scallop appetizer as my server said there were five scallops. Turned out there were only three and it was $22. The presentation was beautiful but you could not cut the scallops as their presentation was on a shell that slid off the base. They charged for a half order of bread. And the bread was so stale, inedible! Very disappointing for a restaurant of this quality.

    The food are not what we expected, please see what we think: First the drinks are good for both of orders, the oysters, only one kind which was very disappointed and cracked shells in some of them and some of them didn't cut through, no spoon for the sauce..the chowders are cold, it should be hot...the octopus does not taste grill and not grill marks..magical mushrooms are very salty.. the Japanese wagyu fried rice it is cold too and the beef is tough to chew on....(I don't believe it's wagyu beef). We are celebrating my husband's birthday that day and I thought there may be some surprise, because when I book the dinner, they asked me "what occasion for the reservation" it's for a birthday... anyway I think this review will tell the future customers, be aware!!! it's not worth of you $$$.....

    2LB Baked Lobster was fantastic. My date got the lobster Mac, which was also very good. Location is great with views of the water. Went around sunset and it was beautiful. Would recommend to any seafood fan.

    We had an outstanding birthday celebration for a dear friend. Everything was perfect but a special applause to the bartender. I can’t remember his name but he is from Morocco. He went over and above to make our event truly wonderful.

    The Hostess was very pleasant and accommodating; sat us at a nicely set up table. Susan V greeted us within a minute. The steps of service was very precise and professional. Plating was exceptionally beautiful to the eyes but not so much to the palate. It was very nice of her to surprise us with the anniversary dessert plate. Much appreciated. 10 out of 10 for Susan.

    This was an impromptu dinner after a ferry ride over from the Logan. Food was good and service was good, but with only one other table with diners, they seated us in a corner. Very Strange. The bar had 6+ people seated, but we felt like we were on an island.

    We made a reservation for lunch on the patio, but it was raining so we ended up dining inside. While we initially went for the view, the inside is very pleasant (also with a view) the food is well executed and the service exemplary. The prices are what you would expect for a restaurant in a top-rated hotel, but not out of line for the quality of the food. Good wine list, and reasonably priced. The lobster roll is especially good - generous amount of lobster, just the right amount of sauce, perfectly toasted brioche bun, and a excellent french fries.

    The Sea Grille is a lovely outdoor dining venue, but, they need to revamp their reservation system. Although they require reservations and you can designate "patio", the patio is actually "first come, first serve" within those with reservations; what is the point of a reservation if it is not honored? They should only allow patio reservations for the number of reservations that are available....like a normal reservation system. It is frustrating to have a reservation for 2 months, and then be told, "Sorry, no tables available on the patio."

    We enjoyed an absolutely beautiful early evening dinner! The location is spectacular. Sitting outside overlooking the Boston Harbor from Rowe’s Wharf Sea Grille is an instant special occasion which also happened to be my birthday. The shrimp cocktail was generous and delicious. My husband ordered the halibut, me the scallops. The tastes were only surpassed by the presentation. Dessert was the Dark Chocolate Bar with Raspberry Sorbet.

    A Gem within the city on the waterfront!!! The outdoor seating is perfect!!! Not very busy with bystanders. Not noisy. We've come several times, and never disappointed. But this time, the salad was a little wilted, and the delicious mushrooms app was very salty. The fish and chips were plentiful and delicious! Fish was really fresh and flaky. The scallops were very fresh, tasty , and tender but few. The service was good, friendly and attentive waitstaff. We will definitly return.
