OpenTable Diner (New York Area)

We had wonderful service, all three meals we had one Asian waitress. Couldn't ask for better hospitality...She was filling shifts, the restaurant was short staff for the holidays.. I look forward to coming back...

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...

Did not expect restaurant to be a bar extension. Although views are great and food is good, expect the ambiance to be that if a bar, with the noise level loud.

Just underwhelming ...the food was ok, with the exception of the cole slaw (inedible). Very few other diners made it seem cold.. Mike was good and attentive as the waiter.

Had an amazing and wonderfully accommodating staff on hand and we enjoyed ourselves immensely! The food was good but I would have liked to have seen more options, I felt rather limited.

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.

My daughter's friend was in Boston with her kids. I thought Joes in the Waterfront. Winner of 2016 Battle of the Burger, perfect fit for all. Great setting outside, food kids could get and one more burger for me. What's not to like? Love Joe's!
