Nice place, if not a little pricey. The hotel feels a little bougey but a nice dinner

Very first time at Outlook for a special occasion. Aubrie was very knowledgeable and charming. Maintained excellent service standard throughout our time at the table. French Toast and Pancakes were excellent choice to start off with. Thoroughly enjoyed it and definitely will go back.

The food was delicious. Executive chef Tatian Rodman’s is very humble. She came and met my group. She didn’t get weirder out that I found her on LinkedIn LOL.

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

The waiter was very attentive and met our needs.

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.

Really good food. The risotto and Mac n Cheese are amazing. Also, the salmon is really good. We were a group of six and shared the flatbread as an appetizer; it was excellent and enough as a starter!
Really good ambiance, we went for a birthday celebration and it was a great place for it!

The Pancakes are really good! We had the Chilequilles with checken and that had too many nanchos and not enough meat.
Also the mimosas were not the best, except for the Basil one.
Will get take out from there in the future for some of the sweeter stuff but that's about it.

I requested for a regular table and the hostess still asked us if it was OK to get a high table. She was very grouchy and not friendly at all. And when we got situated in our table we waited for more than 10 minutes to have a waiter come to us. I even had to ask for one. Otherwise we could have waited longer for the waiter to come. Not a good experience for us

To be honest I’ve been out a lot lately and am catching up on reviews. The fact I can’t recall with any great fondness the meal I enjoyed here speaks for itself I suppose. I keep coming back but I’m not sure why. I always leave feeling like I want it to be nicer than they do. Great hotel. The food is serviceable but the whole thing lacks soul.

Had a dinner with my friend, we loved the food and the vibe of the place, but the restaurant was freezing (we had to ask to have the heat turned on?) and our waiter was honestly terrible. He would barely wait for us to finish our sentences before walking away, he never asked us if we wanted another drink after our first one (we did), and when we ordered dessert and coffee the dessert came out right away but the coffees were MIA until we asked about them, and when we did he acted like we were bugging him and was like “yeah yeah yeah they are coming”. Overall I would go back for the food but maybe in the summer and definitely not with that waiter.

The Outlook is a WONDERFUL addition to the Seaport District!!! The dishes created by Chefs Tatiana and Sam are original, unique and yet comprised of simple ingredients. The staff is friendly and available but does not rush anyone. The rooftop offers a breathtaking view of the Boston skyline.

Each time I visit I find new menu items and I am amazed that, as busy as the restaurant is, the crefs make time to personally greet me.

Chefs Tatiana and Sam are amazing and CANNOT be replaced!!

Food was very good, but portions were small for the price (Octopus appetizer has only one leg). Kitchen was tied up serving "large" party according to manager, no offer to compensate for extensive wait time while we were seated, other than to offer to let us leave before we were served our entrees...

While the scene is vibrant it seems the kitchen cannot handle a crowded Saturday night! The waiter was very knowledgeable and good, but food took about an hour to get to us, then the NY Strip was hard and scallops cold and rubbery!! A little disappointed based on reviews, but plan to give them a second try next time in town!!
