Made a reservation...was put at a table directly next to the server work station...requested to me moved to an open table that was next to the window to avoid having to sit next to the very busy and noisy work station...was told no...could not move as the women seating us said...she had to seat us where she was told to seat us due to the servers. The tablw was very awkward as servers were right on top of us and bumping in to the chair that my husband was seating in...Head hostess heard me complaining to my husband about the seating and she came over and offered us another table.

Thank you to Andrew for the wonderful table and appetizer and for the great service from Sydney! Can't wait til September when we host our rehearsal dinner with you in the beautiful second floor! You have been nothing but a pleasure to work with thus far!

The seafood at Turner's is the best in Boston and the atmosphere makes it a neighborhood gem but we had a 7:15 reservation and weren't seated until 8:00 even though there were empty tables. The hostess offered a free app but the wait left us wondering.

Mussels were fair with good broth though bread was hard, even for dipping.
My wife's crabcakes were very good. My shrimp over humus was poor as humus was tasteless, faelaf dried out and hard and shrimp very overdone and dried out.

Outstanding service--we arrived early for our reservation and were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation time. Service at the bar and table were both excellent. The manager checked in with us twice to see how our food was--it was amazing. Baked seafood medley and baked scallops were superb. Even the dinner rolls were awesome. Dessert--crème brulee was delicious. Incredible bourbon cocktails to boot. The atmosphere was perfectly cozy for a cold November night--we were seated next to the fireplace, great ambience.

Special "mystery weekend away" for my husband included dinner at Turner's. I did not know this restaurant, but booked it because of the reviews. Our food was delicious, and our server was the nicest. She was attentive without hovering. We will definitely return to this restaurant.

We have enjoyed several lunches at Turner's Seafood after visiting the Peabody-Essex Museum. The food is always really delicious, nicely presented, generously portioned, and the waitstaff are great. Try the coconut shrimp!

We used to have date night here until early 2015 when service went downhill and food quality was just terrible. Not sure if they are under new management or what but this weekend the food was excellent. Its a bit loud for my liking but service was really good. Ide definitely go back.

Wonderful and romantic restaurant with great service. The most delicious lobster bisque we have ever tried! A bit overpriced but very good. I ordered the shrimp and grits and my husband had stuffed lobster, both did not disappoint! Incredible history of the building too. Would definitely return!

The food was delicious and perfectly cooked. The bar and wait staff were professional, friendly, attentive and all n all outstanding.
It was extremely busy when we arrived so we had a drink at the bar while we waited a few minutes for our table. I noticed it was a little loud but again it was very busy. Once seated, it seemed to quiet down a bit and although the restaurant was still pretty full, my husband and I felt like we were the only ones there.
I cannot wait to go back.

Delicious meal in warm ambience with wonderful and attentive wait staff. Have really enjoyed the Shrimp Scampi and the Grilled Salmon pasta on the 2 occasions I have been here. Excellent sea food restaurant. Highly recommended and a delight to return to.

Turners never disappoints! The food is outstanding especially the incredible lobster bisque and clam chowder. Fish is fresh and well prepared. Although the crab cake is offered as an appetizer, the portion was very generous and enough for a meal if you have a cup of soup.
