Rowes Wharf Sea Grille Ratings and Reviews
This is not a complaint email at all. I was only surprised at the expense of the meal!
My friends birthday dinner was the occasion. Everything was outstanding and I imagined the bill for the dinner would be somewhat expensive - I just didn't think it was going to be $175!!
Y'all can charge whatever you'd like for dinner (I live local in Boston), and I realize you cater to a high end clientele, but WOW! I wasn't expecting that.
I think I'll just come for coffee and dessert instead. And probably just once a year for a special occasion.
I am glad we went, but I don't think we will return. Although we made a reservation, we were told our table that was outside was promised to a bigger party that was staying at the hotel and we had to leave at a certain time if we wanted to stay outside. We were offered a table inside. Our reservation was for outside. For the price, the food was disappointing. We expected more.
The service was rushed. No one came by to offer a second drink and it felt like there was relief that we didn't order desert. Our check was lost because someone rushed it away to settle it without telling our waiter. Since we were being rushed the entire time (we stood to leave and three people were clearing the table before we even stepped away), and the food wasn't very good, it is unlikely that we will return.
I eat here fairly regularly and while the menu is not huge, the food is always consistently good. The service is also white-glove and very accommodating. A great place for a work lunch, especially this time of year. The music is fun at night too, but rather loud, so may make it difficult to hear your companions.
We were celebrating our 32nd Anniversary and chose the Boston Harbor Hotel, Rowes Wharf Sea Grille, one of my favorite places to stay and enjoy a meal. I love sitting outside where you can hear music and people watch. During the summer they have live music and movies on their back outdoor restaurant facing the harbor. The views are amazing, the food was delicious, the staff was outstanding and attentive, friendly and kind. Kudos to each staff member that treated us with such special kindness for our anniversary and reminded us of why we continue to go back to the Boston Harbor Hotel and restaurant.
Price was definitely not what we were expecting. Try $30+ for entrées. View was great, I suppose that's what we were paying for. Food was good. Halibut was a little salty. Cod was good. Grilled tuna was done lovely, though the purple rice was a little al dente. Desserts were lovely. Expresso was good but for the price I would have liked a bit more than a few drops. Service was nice, minus the awkward asking if everything was tasting good when we hadn't received any meals...
We had a great time and the service was awesome. The restaurant was so accommodating with my requests and everything was just the way we wanted. We were celebrating birthdays and watching my brother in law play in the band. Will definitely make this an annual tradition.
My first time here, but it left a great impression. We came in late around 8:15pm for dinner. We sat inside the restaurant, and it was very empty and quiet, which we preferred, honestly. There were 7 of us ( 2 of which were 4 and 3 years old). The service was quality, the restaurant had a nice clean look to it and the food was incredible.
The next time we're downtown, we were planning on coming back. Definitely worth it.
Our party of eight was seated inside at 7:25. By 8:10 we had not gotten our drinks nor had we placed our order. It was downhill from there. The manager got involved at around 9:30 once it was appatent that the entree order of one of us had not been put in. While the food was very good, the incompetent service ruined our evening. We were comped for a couple of dishes and given a 15% discount - too little too late. Very disappointing. Will not return. Will not recommend.
My now fiancé and I had dinner on the patio, the ambiance was perfect, we had excellent food, wine, service and music with the view of the tall ships that were in town. After dinner, we walked along the harbor to fan pier and that is where my boyfriend proposed with the beautiful Boston Harbor in the background! Thank you for starting our night off perfectly.
The staff was very accommodating of a change of seating when a very loud band played outside. Calamari and clam appetizers were just ok. Several of the dishes were disappointing. The cod loin entrees (2 of them) were good but small end pieces, maybe 4 oz each - not thick like you would expect of cod loin. A grilled swordfish was rather dry and tough. Salmon and halibut entrees were good. But with entree prices of $30 and up, you would think they wouldn't serve anything they weren't proud of.
Came here for dinner after viewing the Tall Ships docked in Boston. Came with my parents and my family. Location is scenic and the dining area is beautiful.....but there was a major problem with the kitchen that night. Our server blamed the busy-ness of the Tall Ships exhibition, though the dining room wasn't full. We had to ask about our meal several times. Our server did look into it and was apologetic and was nice......but we did not get our food until a good hour after ordering. Our girls ordered pasta -- there is no excuse for the delay. When our food arrived you would think it might be piping hot, off the grill or out of the oven -- but no. All of our food was just warm. Made no sense. I didn't get one of the side dishes on my plate, which was the same exact order as my mother's. The person bringing our meals tried to explain how our meals were different and get out of bringing me the side dish, until he realized they were in the wrong.
They tried to make up for the tardiness by giving us a couple of free desserts -- but they never told us that was happening so it was a strange miscommunication -- the desserts were brought to the table and we turned them away since we didn't order it....then we figured they were giving it to us for free, etc. Honestly, I feel we should not have had to pay for our meal. A couple free desserts really wasn't enough. Not planning to go back.
