Waterline - Marriott Longwharf Ratings and Reviews
It was a Tuesday night and most tables were empty. The view is great, even on a rainy night. Food delicious, service excellent except that a "Dewars"on the rocks was reversed with a "Jack Daniels" on the rocks and was not replaced but just swapped to customer's surprize.
I have been to Oceana twice this spring and thoroughly enjoyed it each time. The views are among the best in Boston. Prices are quite reasonable, the service is attentive and the seafood dishes are fresh and nicely prepared. THe amibiance is pleasant and quiet. You don't get rushed out. The coffee is quite good and one can linger and enjoy the harbor and your friends.
While the hostess appeared knowledgeable, she was not especially friendly.
My waiter was very attentive.
I thought that the list of food items was not as good as it used to be when it was called the Harbor View. It used to be exceptional.
The champagne was very good.
Calamari good but not great (needs to be thinner rings and more crisp); Lobster is lobster (always excellent!); drinks a bit pricey (average $15 for a martini & $7 for bottled water); Key lime dessert is advertised as "creamy," but is think and "cheesecake-like" in consistency - not as light as it could be - also served with heavy crust; service was impeccable.
Disappointing, to say the least. While the view of Boston Harbor is spectacular, the Sunday buffet was only ok. There were the standard breakfast items you can find anywhere at half the price. Other brunchy things such as oysters Rockefeller were barely recognizable versions. The peel-and-eat shrimp and some of the desserts were the only notable items. Even the service was lacking. Our waiter spent most of his time chatting with the other staff. We had to take our used plates over to him.
They are coasting on their view.
Felt like a dying restaurant with only four tables being served during prime time on a Saturday night. Filet was overcooked and had to be sent back. By the time it came back I had finished my meal. If I hadn't, it would have been cold. Very disappointing, would not go back. For such a great view, one would think that a quality restaurant would do well.
The food and view were wonderful. Very nice place for a special meal. The only let down was the waiter. He was a very nice guy but carried on conversations with other diners while neglecting his other customers. The bus staff were very attentive. Will go back for sure.
This was a HUGE, and expensive disappointment. I went online to find a good seafood restaurant in Boston, one that was on the water would have been a plus. The website did not at all make it clear that this was a HOTEL restaurant, with overpriced, undersized meals. Also, the much acclaimed view of the Harbor was not to be seen from my table. It was a monumental waste of money in that the food was not only miniscule in scale, but also of second-rate quality. I do not even recommend this restaurant for people who decide to stay at the hotel, and I do not know why the website would advertise it as a top-rate restaurant for non-hotel stayers.
We had a wonderful Sunday brunch on a clear but cold-d-d day, but still could experience an "outdoor experience". The six of us were celebrating a family anniversary and truly enjoyed the varieties of food choices and appreciated the professionalism of the staff. Our only difficulty was the arrival of a large group whose noise level was probably more suited to a pub.
We ate at the Oceana while attending Yankee Dental in January 2009. It was very quiet and empty. We enjoyed our meals and the convenience of eating at a lovely restaurant in the hotel and walking down the hall to our room afterwards.
There was one table with a couple of people when we got there. They left, and we were alone, then another table came in. I chaulk it up to the bad economy.
I will never eat at this restaurant again.Everything (except for the bread) was horrible.After watching the waiter pass a platter full of food on top of my friend's head I respectfully asked to be moved to a table where we would not be in the way.The restaurant was essentially empty (I understood later why)so there was no reason to sit in front of the wait staff station where the columns, chair, etc cut the passage way to less than 2 feet.He denied the request and simply said he would not come that way again.The food was cold when it arrived and needed to be sent back. When they brought it back they it was over done.The filets were still alive. For the very first time in my +30 years of casual to elegant dining I did not tip.
The resaurant was average. Took my clients for lunch. The food was good, except for my entree. I ordered the tuna, listed on the menu for $29, seared rare, as rare as can be. It came completely WELL-DONE. I sent it back. They sent another one out that was completely raw and fleshy, not seared at all, maybe 10 seconds per side. I sent it back again. It came out for the third time, not the way i wanted it, but I couldnt send it back with my clients there., even though they agreed that the fish is not cooked accordingly. This was not a good impression on me, nor my clients. The only good thing, I will admit, the desserts were very good.
Lovely evening. Restaurant was quiet as there were not a lot of diners making it great for being able to chat with everyone at the table without being loud. View of the harbor was perfect as the night was clear. The appetizers (crabcake, chowder, salads, etc, were quite good, those needing to be warm were served so. Entrees of crusted cod, scallops were tasty and accompanying sides quite good. Creme brulee to round out the meal was delicious. Easily would recommend for dinner.
I had been to Oceana in the summer for outdoor dining several times and always had a wonderful experience, but this past Saturday night was one of the worst Boston dining experiences ever. They were severely under staffed and that showed from the second we sat down- I had to get up several times to find our waiter-to request drinks,to let the waiter know that one of our meals was under cooked (nearly raw- when medium was requested)and to also cancel dessert since it had been over 30 mins since our meal was done. I was the one that suggested Oceana to the group I was with and at the end of the meal felt that I had to apologize for the mistake I made in making the reservation.
The waiter was great. We asked for a window seat which would imply a view. There were only one or two other couples there the entire time we were there and we were given probably the worst window view in the restaurant. One person had a view of the closed bar on the outside patio. Most other tables were set so both parties of a couple could view the ocean. What as the maitre'd thinking! We did not say anything on arrival but I guess we could have. But we should not have had to.
big disappointment and horrible food. Wait staff was impersonal although the bus person PEI was very sweet and attentive. The food was on the par of a Denny's seafood night as the scallops were overcooked and chewy and I had to hide them in my too standard mashed potatoes. The onion soup was ok, but it's onion soup. Overall this place is a disappointment for where it is and that it is on the Long Wharf! Go to other places. Next time i will not resist the pull to go to a north beach italian place as i have yet to have a bad meal there ever.
