We were out to celebrate our daughter being home from NYC. It was my second visit to the Outlook Kitchen (had been there for a yummy lunch) and my family's first visit for dinner.
It is a restaurant and bar with a high energy and the feel of "the place to be in Boston". It is casual and on trend with the scene at the Seaport. If you are looking for quiet, white cloth restaurant with simple or traditional menu items...this is not for you. Perhaps you should select another spot if Granny is with you unless she is fun and trendy.The setting is really open, loud and electric and when we got there for a 7:30 reservation the bar and outside area were jammed. Even with the big crowd, the restaurant honored our open table reservation by seating us immediately.
We are foodies and appreciate inventive menus and creative food presentation. Outlook's menu was perfect for us. We had a hard time deciding what to order because there were so many great choices. We tasted the Blue Hills mussels, tuna tartare on a tostada and watermelon & burrata. All were delicious. Perhaps the best mussels we have ever tasted ....our plates looked like they were licked clean. The meal was off to a great beginning. I can't wait to channel Chef Tatiana and service my version of the watermelon burrata dish this summer since it was so refreshing and presented beautifully .
For entree's we had the chicken, george's bank scallops and red snapper in a banana leaf and the yuca gnocchi with a side of shishito peppers( which comes life at the table). I wish I could remember the exact description of each item how ever they were amazing. Any one of these dishes would be reason enough to run back to Outlook. The gnocchi was so flavorful and delicious. I am not typically a gnocchi fan, however I would order this dish in a heartbeat. The scallops were sweet and fresh on a bed of pea and something puree. The Snapper had soft and crunchy flavors and palate teasers and the chicken was tender and flavorful.

We were referred to this restaurant by our hotel concierge, for the view and the jazz brunch on Sunday. As a result, we were able to make a reservation for outdoor seating. We were seated right away, but were disappointed in that there was no view (I think the concierge was confused with the rooftop bar), but even more disappointing was that there was competing music from The Barking Crab that was across the alley. While the music from each place was fine in its own merit, the combination of the two was a big noisy mess. Upon talking with the hostess, it was revealed that it happens every Sunday. While the Seaport area is lovely, given the location of the restaurant patio, it could be confused with any other noisy restaurant corner in Boston. Disappointing.

I took my cousin who was visiting from New York City and she found it very similar to restaurants in the city. We went for dinner in early June. Both of our meals were great- the grilled chicken is consistently excellent. The drinks and food are highly overpriced, but it’s all about the ambiance. It was my second time dining there and I’ll return many more times.

Food was "good" and the service was "good". Nothing about it was great. We had brunch on Sunday and between the singer with the ear-splitting voice and the TV's with the Jerry Springer infomercial on the ambience was horrendous. All while the Red Sox were playing as well as a golf tournament. Despite asking twice for the Red Sox game we were forced to watch Jerry...

Live Jazz music during brunch. This was my second time here.Brunch menu is well rounded and classic. Food was very good, two of us had omelets and other two had shakshouka (I have menu envy)! Price was reasonable for an upscale hotel restaurant. Great location, bright and modern decor, not overly crowded and the music was a nice touch.

I dined here on a Saturday night with a group of friends. We were seated past our reservation time, but it was not the restaruants fault as it was a nice night and people wanted to sit and enjoy the open windows. My only true complaints are the service was extremely slow. It took forever to receive waters, let alone our alcoholic drinks. Almost 15-20 minutes. We shared three appetizers; the grilled octopus, steak tartare, and tuna tataki. Each was prepared beautifully, except the portions were not exactly generous for the price (between $15-18). For dinner, we had the filet, steak frites, salmon, and paella. The paella was a very small portion but delicious. All the other entrees were good size. The ambiance is not exactly romantic or a place you'd like to stay and hang out. Between the food and the service, the experience was average. I most likely will not be back due to there are better restaurants in the vicinity for the price and better ambiance and service.

Food wasn’t good. Not worth the price. Lobster Benedict was overpriced and they don’t even use real lobster. Regular eggs Benedict was lackluster and the ham on it just looked like one slice of deli meat. Hash browns and drinks were good, service was okay. Inside of the restaurant is pretty, nice atmosphere.

I visit Envoy often but this time the service was pretty bad, the waiter didn't seem to pleased to have his job. It took multiple times to get the attention and requests for common things such as silverware, water etc. My party also got the sense that the waiter wanted us out quickly, he attempted to deliver the receipt before we even made out dessert request. The food and ambiance was decent and that's probably the reason I'll come back again. Highly recommend to order multiple starters and treat it as a sharing style meal.

My group sat in a glass room that overlooked the kitchen. We could see everything going on.

Came in for Sunday Brunch. There was live music, the decor is inviting with edision lights and an open dining area. The lobster benedict is one of the best, if not the best I've had in the NE area. There was a generous amount of lobster on both halves, the egg was poached were the yolk was still soft- overall delicious! The sandwich was alright in comparison but there seemed to be too much mayo. The coffee was good but there were no refills, or we weren't offered a refill which was upsetting as the mugs were deceivingly small.
