My fiance and I were seated immediately in the outdoor area, which provided beautoful views of the nearby piers and buildings. The service was exemplary and the food was delectable. Our waitress even apologized for the wait on certain items when they didn't seem to take much time at all. Due to the heat, a waitress came around with alcoholic popsicles for everyone outside, which added a nice note of caring about the customers. I will definitely return when I can!

service was not good nor bad; we sat awkwardly for good 5 10 min for our waiter to actually fill our water/attending our table. But after that, everything seems ok

Fun atmosphere...had "fish bowl" drinks...menu was varied..i think i ordered the wrong item..the beef skewers were 4 tiny skewers in a mason jar stuck into lo mein. Not a large portion for dinner.

We sat outside which was nice but also noisy since the cars were being typical Boston drivers and honking freely at the light nearby. The sangria was delicious and overall it was a good time. I have to note that this was the worst pizza that I've ever had in Boston. I'd compare it to chuck E. cheese level pizza from over a decade ago when I last went.

Lobster roll was delicious. We made a reservation and were able to choose our table.
Service was great from the hostess to the server.
Like that gratuity is included.

A very impressive dining experience at Tamo. To be honest, this was a last minute reservation and wasn't our first choice. But we loved our food and the ambiance was wonderful. Our server was friendly and personable. Our food was fresh and tasty. And a spectacular location in Boston Harbor to boot!

When I couldn't get a reservation anywhere in the Seaport District, I remembered Tamo and was able to get in on a Saturday night at 7:30. The seating was so comfortable, big plush upholstered chairs, lovely view of the harbor. I ordered the soft shell crab special which was really good and the others seemed quite happy with their choices too. The service was terrific and you didn't feel rushed out like I've felt the last few times at other places in the Seaport. I'd definitely go back. Definitely a good spot for a quiet, laid back dinner.

Tamo is in a great location, and has a great vibe to it. The menu has a wide range of options, and is reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend going here if you want to dress nice, and can't decide what you want to eat. Ordered sushi, and was nicely made. Chicken nachos were tasty as well.

We booked this restaurant not realizing it was part of a hotel. We almost left as hotel restaurants are typically sub-par. However, we were hungry & tired, so we stayed with very low expectations. We were so pleasantly surprised! The menu seems a little "all over the place" but every person in our picky party of 4 LOVED their meal. Gratuity is added into the bill, so we expected poor service- but again we were mistaken. Gio, our waiter, went above and beyond to make our dinner special. We will go back here the next time we visit Boston.

The restaurant is nice. The chairs and table are very comfortable. Our server was nice and friendly. I was out with friends but we were mostly disappointed at the limited menu. Other than that service was good. I had the lobster roll with salad. The roll was overstuffed with lobster meat and the salad was nice and fresh.

I would go back if the menu is revamped.

I wasn't sure what to expect as there were mixed reviews and a number of reviewers were confused by and a bit skeptical of the diverse menu. But the app and dinner selections we made (calamari, steak tips, and mussels) were all delicious. The other food that passed by us looked excellent as well, and we look forward to returning to try out some of the other items. However, when we return, we'll skip the S'mores in a Crock. It sounded great and tasted pretty good, but it was served in a burning hot bowl (not a crock), and half of the dessert stuck to the dish, so we missed out on the best parts. And it took way too long to be served. Other than that, it was an excellent choice for a hotel restaurant/bar that doesn't seem to get a lot of notice with all of the newer places in the area.

Don't miss out on the Lobster BBQ macaroni and cheese waffles- they were unreal. My husband and I got sushi for our main course and our friend got the steak. The food was phenomenal and our server Irene was incredibly nice and on top of her game. Great experience, we will definitely be back!

This restaurant and hotel do not accept gratuity. You can definitely tell in the service at Tamo's . Wait staff did not tell me specials although I noticed some customers were told. I ate there twice for lunch and dinner. I had to ask both times. The Lobster Roll was not lobster. Sorry, I know the difference in fake and real lobster. The other meal was French Onion Soup. It was not good at all. The broth was tasteless and the cheese and bread on top was one big blob and couldn't be eaten very well. We asked for butter with our rolls when served the soup and never received the butter. The waitress was very curt and not helpful. Boston has great restaurants. Unfortunately, sometimes you need to eat at the hotel. Tamo was disappointing.

We went to Tamo because we were staying at the hotel never expecting the food to be so good. There was a really interesting selection of food items and they were delicious. The service as excellent until our server disappeared and didn't tell us - we weren't sure what happened. Someone took over but it was strange. Regardless, the restaurant is great. The seating is very comfortable and the view of the harbor is lovely.

I usually don't write bad reviews but have to say this restaurant is not that good at all. There are so many other great places to go than TAMO in the Seaport area. Appetizers came out cold, and a "beet salad" only had two slivers of beets that I could hardly see. Service was very good, though and it is convenient as it is right next to Seaport Conference Center. Sorry Tamo.

I was visiting from California on the coldest weekends in history of Boston. My sisters came all the way in from the burbs with weather conditions and we couldn't have made a better choice for Valentines brunch. The waiter was superb and the rest of the staff were so friendly and accomendating for my handicapped sister. The food choices and food we ordered were terrific!

Go and stay at the hotel as well, it's a happening area in my favorite city...Boston Rocks!

Had a good lunch here. the chicken waffle appetizers were excellent. my chicken avocado stack was great too. waiters were very nice, as usual. the menu is a bit hard to read - it's very busy and spread out...not sure it makes sense. Some of the pricing seems all over the place too. But good food and good service. I'd go back.

Was not the best night. There were kids in the lounge running all around playing with the empty tables and just behaving terribly. Parents didn't seem to care and wait staff just ignored the behaviors. Put a damper on the drinks and the meal. The meal was luke warm and the chicken nachos were just plain cold. Just was an all around off night in all aspects. Been before and was pleased. Hope it is not a trend downward

A group of seven of us are a very relaxed dinner for New Year's Eve! Great food and the waitstaff was amazing, giving us space to enjoy our meal and each other's company. The food was very creative and quite delicious. The wine list was also impressive. A bit on the expensive side, but great do a holiday dinner, anniversary, or Valentine's Day.

Really is just a hotel "restaurant". Fine if you're looking for a low key time out of the house, expensive and sub par if you're looking for a good dinner and night out. Also, expensive for what it is. I think there are better choices close by.

We had a really nice dinner. The chicken curry and fisherman stew both exceeded our expectations! Don't pass on dessert - the bread pudding was light and the root beer float was decadent! Service was a tad slow and place was definitely noisier than what we are used to. As tables are pretty close together. But ambience was still nice with table by the eindow.
