Waterline - Marriott Longwharf Ratings and Reviews
Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this restaurant. The service was great...our server was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The menu was interesting, and the prices seemed fine for a nice restaurant. But...and, this is most important, the food was not as fresh and flavorful as it should have been. In such a competitive restaurant scene as Boston, and, with the Marriott tradition of excellence, the food should have been better...specifically, the salmon was overlooked and the quinoa /veggie salad it was served on was dry and flavorless. The lobster was over boiled, the baked potato and corn over cooked . I hope this is helpful...there's room to improve.
Overall, B+. The service and place were at a good location, we probably expected a nicer setting given its proximity to the wharf but is nothing they promoted, just something we assumed...
For the place and service, the September lobster special is a good deal, just slightly overdone but a good deal nonetheless. Shrimp cocktail has good room for improvement, but big, quality meat used in it.
Drinks are quite unremarkable, another restaurant where their signature cocktail lacks personality.
Would we go again? Sure, not a bad deal, we'll just set expectations to the right level...
Made reservations here because it had solid reviews on OpenTable. I definitely regretted not taking into consideration that people were likely leaving reviews in relativity to other hotel restaurants. On a good note, the appetizers we got (chips and beer cheese dip & clam chowder) were great! On the not-so-great note, my boyfriend ordered the salmon, and it had virtually no flavor. I ordered the cobb salad, which was also pretty lack-lustrous and not very enjoyable. That being said, great place to come for apps and drinks, but there are SO many better options in town if you want a decent meal.
Waterline is a great example of a fine hotel restaurant. The service was totally up to standard and the food was delicious. They accommodated children and special diets with perfect professionalism. The restaurant has a lovely view of the Long Wharf and as it was Navy Week we had great views of sailors and Marines parading down the wharf. The prices were in line with what I would expect at a major hotel, but since I not am accustomed to dining in major hotels all the time, they felt high to me, hence the 4-stars for value. But, again, it is what we would have paid anywhere else for dinner downtown. The Fish and Chips was perfect, the cooks really know how fry; my husband had a gorgeous salad presented on a long and perfect piece of prosciutto. Kids' hamburger and hot dogs were cute mini burgers and dogs. Looked like two pieces of what might have been a three-piece adult appetizer. Both loved their food. Looked like a great place to meet friends downtown and a nice atmosphere to hang out at the bar.
The Waterline is so convenient coming in to Boston to meet friends. The service was excellent this time and with a "reserved" sign on my table, I felt like they appreciated the many times I come back . They expanded the menu and the fish tacos and the sliders are great. Prices seem more reasonable than in the past. And the waitstaff was extremely efficient and professional this time. Never felt rushed. I'll be returning soon.
I was traveling in Boston with my husband and wanted a nice, quiet restaurant where I would feel comfortable eating alone. While he was attending a business function. The chowder was yummy, the atmosphere comfortable and the servers' level of attention was just right. Thanks for a nice meal/evening.
I have always loved this place because it's a nice, secret spot that is a great last stop for the night or a quick lunch. Their food is creative and delicious and the wine list is spot on. The bartenders are always super friendly and the ambiance is fantastic.
This restaurant in the Marriott Long Wharf hotel has a nice view (for a select few tables ) of the harbor and the overall interior is airy, modern and pleasant. The food is just as good, if not better, with a wide-ranging menu of the usual favorites (salad, burgers, sandwiches, but also the random Indian dish and more innovative appetizers). the prices are quite reasonable, and portions decent without being excessive. The only complaint is that on a recent night the music speakers were turned up WAY too loud. I would definitely return if in the neighborhood.
We went for my wife's birthday and had an amazing experience. The service was top notch and they even brought us out a piece of birthday cake without asking. I had the fish of the day and it was spectacular. My wife had the lobster roll which was also great. We were really just wowed by the service overall and would highly recommend this restaurant.
I brought my future sister-in-law here for a low key bachelorette party. The service was great and the view was amazing. We ordered a few appetizers and drinks. The food was amazing and everyone there was very nice. I would go here again with my husband for a fun night out!
My boyfriend and I went here for dinner after a sailing cruise on the harbor. We had a corner booth which was very comfortable and romantic and had a nice view of the water. The food was delicious and they were extremely accomodating of my allergies. They brought my boyfriend a large piece of cake and ice cream for his birthday, and sorbet for myself on the house. Our waitor Barry was so friendly and made our experience!
I frequently use Waterline as a place to meet for business. The food is very good and they have the flexibility to make what
you are looking for if it is not on the menu. Rob was our waiter this time around and his service was excellent as always. He was very accomodating and attentive with a personable demeanor.
I'm a regular and have often commented on how noisy the restaurant can be when large groups are there. On Tuesday evening there were no groups and it was a perfect place to get together with 4 of my former colleagues. It was extremely quiet, allowing us to carry on a conversation without shouting. The service was excellent (Michael always does a good job.) and we had drinks and 4 different appetizers which were tasty and served hot. No rush, relaxing, and just fine. The prices are 'hotel' prices but work for a quick meal.
I'm a frequent diner at the Waterline because of its convenience to Rt. 93 and the 2-hour free parking. The food has been secondary but this past experience was so much better and more enjoyable than previous ones. The salad with chicken was a good portion and chicken very fresh. Server Michael is always the best and no one took our plates away before I finished. The price of wine is on the high side but if you're going to spend just two hours in a casual convenient place, go here. And there was no large crowd to make it difficult to speak. Nice evening.
