Had an excellent dinner with friends on our recent visit to Boston. Suggested by our concierge at our hotel, this restaurant was just what we needed after a long day. The service was exceptional and our food was great. The lobster was de-shelled at the table by our waiter who performed the feat with careful expertise. The steak my wife... More

Had breakfast here, not expecting much as most restaurants attached to hotels are overpriced but this was an excellent beginning. I went back for happy hour which included oysters on the half shell for $1 each ! They also had a good rib eye steak dinner for $20.

We had a good, late night dinner. The dining room is option til about 10pm. The servers were friendly. The food was very good. But the cocktails were very expensive compared to food cost.

The dinners were so delicious and well prepared. I had the short ribs and loved the flavor of the mushrooms with meat. The food is so good you would expect to pay a lot more in this convenient downtown location. A gem!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
