Great quality food and good service! The view of the harbor was awesome. The location couldn't have been better for our Mother's Day brunch.

I would not recommend this restaurant. It was in the lobby of a hotel and was a typical average hotel restaurant with minimal ambiance and mediocre food. I only had two nights in Boston and chose this restaurant based on the 4 plus star reviews on Opentable. I was very disappointed.

The bacon appetizer is not to be missed, it's​ a wonderful marriage of spices and maple. The lentils​ are complete perfection with the beets and goat cheese! Don't forget the yummy and refreshing sangria blended better than any I'd had in a long time!

Having not been to Tamo before, I expected a fun experience based on the menu. When I walked into the restaurant, I had to make sure I was in the right place. It seemed like a dull hotel bar, which is what it is. Four of us went and we were all disappointed with the food. Fine place if you want to meet your 80 year old-aunt for a 5:30 dinner and she likes bland food.

My friend and I decided to try Tamo for our first time after attending the Flower Show on a Saturday night. We were thrilled with all aspects of our dinner, starting with the cozy seating by the window. Our server was polite and friendly - helpful with menu suggestions and gave me a sample of a wine I was asking about.
Our meals for fun and creative and we enjoyed that there were many different levels of food to try from fun bites to "truck food" to more serious full meals. We were too full to try some of the great options for dessert, but plan on coming back soon to try again.
I cannot wait to try Tamo out for a date night with my husband!

Good food. Could be better about gluten free options, or explaining options that could be made gluten free.

Very noisy. It was really busy, so it was noisy. Nothing you can do about it, it's just hard to hear the person you're with.

If you are at the convention center at the Seaport and want a quiet getaway for a business meal, this is a good place. The atmosphere is nice but the food relatively casual and not crazy expensive. Just what I was looking for

This was a great location for a birthday lunch after an event in the area. We sampled many tasty small plates. Unfortunately, our server was offensive and made us feel uncomfortable. He repeatedly made comments about my outfit (not wearing a costume) I addressed it and was dismissive, he returned and kept making comments. He then referred to my friend with a physical disability as "hop along" and informed us of his equal opportunity offensiveness. We were all quite uncomfortable. Then his extensive absence and inattentiveness was a mixed blessing, we were no longer the butt of his jokes but also waited over half an hour to get our check and settle the bill. The rest of the staff was great and generally attentive and the food was great. Unfortunately the service put a damper on my birthday festivities.

Tamo is a wonderfully comfortable dining experience. My host sat me next to a fireplace on a chilly Boston night. My excellent server presented to me a nice Samuel Adams Oktoberfest beer and delivered a delicious lobster roll for dinner. I topped off the evening with a rich, yummy vanilla crème brulle with two chocolate covered strawberries on top! Wow, I felt the love! What a lovely way to end the day, thank you Tamo!

I love Tamo when I'm in the Seaport area. Has an informal but upscale feeling. Food is terrific, varied and a very good value. Service is always friendly and accommodating. The wait staff is mature and they seem to have very little turnover. Bar crowd can be a little noisy, so ask for a table by the window (street level.) Lots of business dinners happening here!

Went to dinner, was pleasantly surprised at the seating and variety of different food on menu. We also came back for desert- both times service was extremely slow whether it was getting our meals, waiting for our drinks or bill, we found ourselves looking for our waitress/waiter multiple times. Luckily we weren't in a rush because it took 35 minutes for our desert (cheesecake and peanut butter mousse) to come to the table. I would recommend for the food but make sure you leave enough time if you have plans after. Also the tip was already included in our bill- it was convenient although may have contributed to the extremely slow service.

Tamo is like an oasis in the desert of the Boston Convention Center district where nearby eateries are few. The restaurant is located in the classy Seaport Hotel just over the bridge across from the Convention Center within a five minute brisk. There is a good variety of food available for selection. Turn around time back to the Convention Center is just over an hour so plan accordingly.

Mediocre food chosen from a confusing menu and served by a confused waiter who got most things wrong. Upside is that the tables are well spaced so permitting a reasonably private business conversation in a convenient location.

We had a reservation for dinner before a concert. When we were seated, they asked if we were attending the show, so they were aware that we had to leave by a specific time. After that, all was downhill. No waiter appeared for 20 minutes, while one waiter spent a full 15 minutes speaking with a table nearby. We finally grabbed someone from kitchen staff and asked if we could please place our order. Our waitress came by only twice later- when we asked for the order to be corrected & when we had to ask a busboy for our bill. Then they put on an automatic 18% tip for 2 people-which they certainly didn't earn. No need to return here when there are much better options nearby where they provide real service

Atmosphere and host staff were pleasant, however our waiter was really lacking. Our experience took an hour and a half for one adult and one child; no alcoholic drinks and no dessert. The calamari was so spicy it was inedible, and we ordered it as an appetizer. When it arrived, so did my child's meal, while I waited another 25 minutes for my own entree. The location is convenient, the ambience is lovely, but the food was mediocre and the waiter had trouble.
