"Menu is very unique blend of Italian, French and New England classics;building also very old and unique. Atmosphere very casual and friendly, and wines a little pricey for the setting. Waitresses very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly."

"I highly recommend this place. Was visiting Boston with my mom for a long weekend and found this place on Opentable. It had mostly good reviews so we decided to check it out. We read that it was one of the oldest buildings in Boston so we thought it would be a fun vibe and it didn't disappoint. The best part was the food. It was delicious. I had the mussels and then the scallops. Cooked to perfection. The service was also good. Friendly and attentive waitress. The only negative would be the price. It was on the pricey side."

"Pub-like in appearance upon entering was not appealing, but once escorted to table clothed tables upstairs, the exquisite food received the stage that it deserved. Delicious food, beautifully played and very attentive waitstaff made for a lovely experience. Highly recommend."

"This is our second time dining at Marliave - the last experience was exactly one year ago. Both times, the food was great, service was fantastic and very attentive. Every dish, from appetizers to desert, were delicious. We will definitely come back again when we are in Boston!"

"This is tucked away near the State House and is quintessential Boston. The building is historic with tin ceilings and period details, and the food is divine. Love the oysters and the scallops, yet everything was tasty and cooked to perfection, including the asparagus. The Henry Marliave specialty drink is a sweet treat. My party of 3 was out for a special occasion; we'll be back."

"All in we had a great meal and very fun dining experience... Our server was terrific and knowledgeable, OK wine list, it could have more French choices, but the food was really great. Both our meals (sole meuniere & chick under a brick) were outstanding. Hot tapioca was delicious (if you like tapioca). Good buzz, dining room was packed but sound was not overwhelming. Looking forward to outdoor dining when it gets warmer."

"The Marliave was kind of just OK...both my friend and I thought that. The prices were too high for the portion sizes and what you actually get.
As an example- for some reason they have FOV- fear of vegetables. I ordered a tuna nicoise salad appetizer...NO GREENS at all! and like 3 olives, 3 green beans and 3 teensy tiny potato balls. No tomatoes, no onion, In fact if you look at the pics here on Yelp...you'll be hard pressed to find any, or very much veg anywhere.
Most of their dishes had little to no veg in them. And if you want veg...well that's $10 for a side.
Their steak frites (which I didn't get but usual love to order anywhere else) comes with steak and frities..nothing else...every other place I've ever had it (any French place) it comes with Arugula or some kind of green to off set the richness of the dish.
The $18 hamburger is a bun and a burger and slice of cheese...no lettuce tomato onion...nothing
I also got mussels, they were cooked just right but it was a small portion for $15 and of course, came with nothing else, I eat mussels a lot in restos and they always come with toasted bread or frities. Here, nothin'
My friend got the fillet of sole which was a special for the night ...it was too thick to be fillet of sole, and too brown. for veg it had 4 little melon-baller sized potato scoops. like each one was the size of a grape. She didn't finish it she said it was too mushy. it was something like $23.
..I was seated in the glass room on the second floor with bad acoustics, too many hard surfaces and since it was full it was very loud.
Service was good, not great the waitperson we have was running around constantly...we had to wait a while to order anything at all. We sat there with water only for a little too long I thought. After that the service was fine.
Their truffles which my friend got for dessert, and I of course had to taste one, are pretty amazing. Super rich and chocolaty!! You can't just pop one in your mouth- they are to savor!!"

"A great place to meet friends. It is lively in the main dining room without it being annoying loud. The waitstaff is good even though usually busy. The upstairs dining room has a great little view of the street review and is cozy without being crowded. A great place for a date to a nice meal with friends. Great bar for drinks or to eat a casual dinner. Food is good and consistent. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice evening out and looking for tasty familiar dishes on the menu."

"My girlfriend and I split the beef wellington and mussels. The mussels were absolutely delicious and the BW was even better. The Wellington looks small but don't be fooled, if your light/medium eaters, the Wellington can easily satisfy two people."
