Rowes Wharf Sea Grille

Rowes Wharf Sea Grille is perfectly situated at the most picturesque spot along the Boston waterfront. Chef Daniel Bruce’s vision for the restaurant celebrates the sea—inventive seafood dishes artfully presented, and a contemporary space with design accents that mirror the ocean beyond the windows. For great food, harbor front views, lively conversation and an upscale yet comfortable atmosphere, look no further than Rowes Wharf Sea Grille, located at the Boston Harbor Hotel..

"Overall good experience. Great environment. Satisfied with the food. The waiter interrupted our conversation couple of times by asking "is everything OK?". Clearly he should choose better timing."

"Grabbed breakfast here -- very quiet/reserved setting. Ideal for a quiet business meeting (as in, getting work done rather than catching up with old friend where one might be a bit more boisterous).
Food is always dead on, reliable."

"Seagrille is always about the view, if nothing else. They have a chainlink fence between the restaurant and the harbor, totally messing up the view. I brought a friend from out of town to dinner for the view.
The management said the fence will be there until June. I would not recommend to go there if you care about the view until you confirm the fence is gone."

"The food was pretty good, but not great. If you are looking for a great value, this is not the place. I ordered the lobster roll, and the bread was stale. The waiter never came back to check on us, otherwise I would have told him and given them an opportunity to correct it. The fries were fresh, but didn't taste good (I think it might have been the oil they used). We ordered the Pumpkin cheesecake for dessert, and it was not very good; seemed like it had been sitting for a while. Not sure what to tell you. I really want to like this place. It's a beautiful place in a beautiful location, the food was OK, and the service was unattentive. I would really like to go back, but just hope that the food could be a little fresher and the service a little better. It wouldn't take much, and this place could be a homerun. Given so many other options, we may not go back for a while. Or maybe just for drinks or order something simple. It's a shame because it has so much potential."

"The Sea Grill is a nice location and ambience, but the food is grossly overpriced. I understand that restaurants in hotels tend to be a bit more than independent venues, but nearly $20 for a sandwich is really over-the-top. As a result, one hesitates to try the more elaborate items on the menu. Basically, you pay for the view, but I would recommend stepping outside to the wharf instead. There, the view is free."

"Aside from the fact that this restaurant was overpriced, the food was not good by any stretch of the imagination. The lobster was overcooked, and the sea scallops all had sand in them. The service was terrible to say the least. The server seemed like he was just there to hang out and we were in his way. We had to wave him over to order our meals because I guess it doesn't make sense that a table of two on valentines day at 6 p.m. might be there to have dinner. I waited 20 minutes for him to bring a refill but he wasn't even aware because he didn't think to stop by on his own even one time after bringing us our initial drinks. Another server brought our food and we went through the entire meal waiting for a refill to swallow down the dry lobster and sandy sea scallops. He didn't bother to come by even one time to ask how the food was or if we needed anything. You might be thinking, maybe the restaurant was busy, or maybe it wasn't busy but it was understaffed. I've worked at plenty of restaurants myself as a cook, a busboy, and a server, and I assure you that the restaurant was far from busy, it was dead (4 tables including us to be exact) and it was far from understaffed. In fact, our server had time to walk around on the other side of the restaurant, hang out at the register, pace back and fourth while checking on his other tables, and do everything in the book but provide us with any service. You might also be thinking, maybe we were rude in the beginning or maybe we were demanding. I wish that was the case, the interactions with him were so short and impersonal that we had no time to do anything but smile and put our drink and meal order. I can honestly say this was the worst service I've had at any restaurant and that includes fast food restaurants."

"While visiting Boston with my boyfriend in the Spring of 2015, we stumbled across this delightful restaurant. We had just come from the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum and were looking for a quiet place to sit and eat lunch by the harbor. We noticed the outdoor seating and took a chance that we might be able to get a table (inside or out) on short notice. With luck we were given a table outside and everything that followed was perfect. The food was delicious and the staff was courteous and attentive. We had such a wonderful time that we decided to go back for dinner the same night. I am so happy that we did. This time we sat inside by a window that looked out onto the Harbor. As usual the food and service were great, and to top things off... my boyfriend proposed to me. Rowes Wharf Sea Grille will always have a special place in my heart. We can't wait to go back the next time we are in Boston!"

"This low-key gem in the Boston Harbor Hotel provides lovely dishes of reliable high quality without fanfare or pretention. A favorite of the more-refined business set, it is equally suitable for a discrete rendezvous with a paramour."

"This has always been my go-to place for out-of-town visitors. The view is lively and the service, impeccable. But something certainly wasn't working food wise on Tuesday. My companions both ordered salmon and remarked it might have tasted better the day before... My salad nicoise was a tad chintzy and served on so small a plate it was impossible to snag a bite of tuna without jettisoning all four of the cherry tomatoes, the olives etc. For the price, meh."

"We chose the Rowe's Wharf Sea Grille for our special anniversary brunch because it received the best reviews online. We were met with a beautiful waterfront table. Beautiful food. Service was excellent. It definitely exceeded our expectations! I would highly recommend their brunch!"
