Mare

Mare, Italian for ‘sea’ , opened in the summer of 2005 in Boston’s historic North End - only 100 steps away from Paul Revere’s house. Mare has quickly become this city’s most acclaimed seafood restaurant with accolades such as “One of the Top 80 Tables in the World” by Conde Nast Traveler and “Go to List” Food & Wine.

Mare is not your typical North End restaurant, the menu is light and healthy it treats all the ingredients with respect in order to highlight their natural flavors and not cover them up. Further, Mare’s modern interior, unbeatable city views and solicitous service draw crowds of all ages for the grilled Octopus, homemade pastas, whole roasted sea bass, stuffed lobster and more. Beer, 33% organic wine list and cordials served.

"This was my second time -- and I think this is my favorite place in the North End, and some of the best seafood around. I didn't like my dish nearly as much as the seafood canniloni I had the last time, but I guess I need to just order that again! My friend got the ciopinno and said it was outstanding. Melissa McCarthy was dining a few tables down with her husband Ben Falcone so if it's where visiting celebrities come it must be doing something right :)"

"Mare at its previous location was one of our favorite North End spots. It was in a quiet location and although small, the atmosphere was very pleasant and relaxing. The new location off of Hanover Street is the opposite! We ate on the deck, which might've been okay, but the tables were too close together requiring the wait staff to be constantly squeezing between tables pressing against the backs of diner's chair. This was very annoying and needs to be fixed."

"I work at the restaurant myself and I know how it works. So waitstaff here actually impressed me. Everyone was very nice and even when I spilled my delicious Nutella Martini on the floor, they made me feel like no big deal and quickly made me another one, without leaving me feeling guilty that it was totally my fault (which it was!). The food was wonderful! Definitely would go back!"

"Highly recommend. The oysters are amazing. The tartare and mussels were spot on. I got the truffle crusted tuna..holy heaven and my friend got the halibut which she loved. Desert was the fig bread pudding. Unreal.
Portions are perfect size here and everything is so fresh. They were 30 min late on our reservation but bought us a round of drinks, which was very nice. Overall, it was a great experience. Always has been."

"Nice setting and location in Boston's Italian quarters. Food was way overpriced - don't mind paying even more when it's really worth it - and service was rushed. They had us finished in less than an hour. lobster and big shrimps were dry,"

"Had six of us for dinner. The food was good but two of the pasta dishes that came out were quite starchy. The linguini and clams was just ok. Wine list is terrific. I expected a pasta that was fresh and el dente . Not sure if I would go back due to very expensive meals"

"This was our 2nd time at Mare and we were not disappointed. While the noise level is quite high, the quality of the food and terrific service makes it totally worthwhile. The mixed grill was delicious and mire than enough to share for 2."
