Summer 2014 schedule to be revealed this coming Spring!
My husband and I shared several small plates. The next was better than the last, right down to the salad. I don't think you could go wrong. Exquisite!!
My husband and I went here to celebrate our anniversary. The ENTIRE staff were attentive (without being over baring) knowledgeable and courteous. The food was perfect. Each course was paired with a specific wine selection and the pairings were matched brilliantly. Go here for the beautiful view of the Boston Harbor, but stay for the 5star dining experience. Everything was absolutely perfect.
Rowes Wharf Sea Grille is located right on Boston Harbor. There are beautiful views of sail boats gliding by as you enjoy your outdoor dining. There is a band playing almost every night during the summer to provide entertainment. The seafood was very fresh and delicious.
This space is just so perfectly unique. You may feel like you have left Boston and been transported to a spot in Italy or France.

A classy looking place with professional bar tending and a refreshingly non-pretentious atmosphere make this a great spot to meet friends or colleagues.Aside from being fairly easy to get to from the financial district, the thing I like about Rowes Wharf Bar is it's relative spaciousness. The bar can be doing a lot of business without its patrons feeling like they are packed-in like sardines. Definitely a place to be Bookmarked for future reference.

Did not expect this degree of quality from a hotel restaurant. Because you can order smaller portions, you can have more variety than just a traditional appetizer and entree. The swordfish was incredibly fresh and cooked perfectly. The Colorado lamb was delicious, equal to any lamb we have eaten in Colorado or elsewhere. The food has a light quality, so even eating a good amount did not make us feel overly full. The service was professional but yet relaxed. Highly recommended.
