That day was no customer at all, I put reservation for birthday. After ate she just brought the check and after I paid she just said I had reserved for birthday. I went to get cake at other restaurant instead.
I’m not sure why just 2 people you are gratuity the bill 18%. But it’s ok, I don’t paid 20%

Our granddaughter flew into Boston on business and stayed at the Seaport, we met her for lunch at Tamo. Very happy with the experience! We had a mid afternoon lunch, restaurant was quiet, seating was comfortable, food was very good and Michael our waiter was most pleasant and knowledgeable, he made the dining part of our meeting terrific.

Lovely restaurant in Seaport Hotel offers an interesting menu, which includes a few surprises (e.g., Nepalese Dal). A gratuity of 18% is automatically included in the check for parties of all sizes.

The restaurant setup is very comfortable. Feels like sitting in a lobby with comfy chairs and you can dine. The service was friendly. We shared chicken nachos, which was a generous portion and had a varied combo of toppings. Tasty! I had scallops with sweet and sour cucumber "noodles" that was delicious. It had a good spice level and was cooked well. Everyone else said dishes were delicious - mixed grill with seafood and chicken curry. Would recommend for casual dining and excellent value. Excellent cocktail too.

It's not easy to find a restaurant where every course is a gem. We even returned for lunch the next day! The Grilled Avocado appetizer is a must. Also very much enjoyed the Sriracha Glazed Scallops and the Ora King Salmon. Perfect ending was the Maple Cheesecake. Service was professional with just the right amount of friendly!

It was our first time at Tamo and it was Okay. Just Okay. It seemed to be in an extension of the lobby of the Seaport Hotel and full of young families. We had the steak tips, medium which were small thin rectangles, fairly tender but not very flavorful. We asked for honey mustard dressing even though it wasn't listed as an option on the menu. They said that could whip up some for us but it seemed to me mostly mustard and a little intense. It was an adequate meal but we probably won't go there again.

The food was just ok. Nachos were loaded with refried beans little meat and cheese and just seemed like a big pile of goop on top of nacho chips. My taco was good not fantastic but good.

Made a reservation for two just in case I was not able to get a spot at the bar for a quick date drink wnd apps before going to a Laugh Boston show. Glad I did as the bar was packed on a December Friday evening at 6 PM Definitely very loud, and I had forgotten or didn’t realize this was effectively a hotel bar/restaurant, which you don’t really notice when you check out their website Host sat me very quickly although my date was not yet thei but was moments away. Initial service was a bit slow before a waiter came to us, but he recovered with great service overall, and was mindful of our time constraints because of the show. My date enjoyed the maple Mojito and I was drinking red wine, though my first glass of the Makbec was horrible ( perhaps a corked bottle or just one that’s been open two long ) and I sent it back which is something I literally have never done… Thankfully the waiter allowed me to change it out for the super Tuscan which I enjoyed with the steak and cheese spring rolls which were a lot larger than expected but were quite tasty. We also shared the candied bacon which always sounds better than it’s going to be, and they serve it cold in a small paper bag as part of its presentation, it was good but didn’t knock our socks off. Overall a little bit pricey for what you get value wise but still a good experience

Tamo was closed until 11:30 serving lunch so allowing a reservation at 9:30am was confusing on arrival. We did eat at Aura in the Seaport Hotel and the buffet was great.

The service was a little slow given that my party of two were the only people sitting in our area. The salt was rock hard due to the humidly, but what really concerned me was the fact that the tip was included in the bill. (for 2 people). I must say the food was very good to bad the other issues I indicated spoiled my overall experience.

Loved the Summer 2018 menu - lots of different choices for all types of appetites. The lobster roll was amazing (as one would expect being so close to the fishing docks of Boston). Service was on point as there was never a point when someone needed their water glass filled. Excellent cocktails too!

We were, perhaps, a little extra disappointed in our experience because we have always enjoyed eating at Tamo in the past. The shaved asparagus salad and the grilled avocado were both woefully under-seasoned...I'm actually not sure if they seasoned the avocado at all, and it was under-ripe. The farro salad fared better, but was almost too salty. The one dish we truly enjoyed was the French Dip sandwich.

We were particularly dismayed by the lack of attention from the serving team, given the low volume on the patio that night. We were at our table for a little over an hour and our water glasses were never refilled. Empty plates and glasses piled up on the table. We did not receive clean flatware when our dessert arrived.

Overall, I would say it is unlikely we will return or recommend Tamo again in the future.

Cool area. Food over priced, even for the area. Nice outdoor sitting area, but not impressed but much else. They add 18% gratuity and then tell you that you can adjust it up or down. A pretty scummy trick because most people won’t adjusted. Not s big fan of places that use tricks to get your money
