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!!

It was my friends birthday and she came into the city to have a fun dinner! We absolutely LOVED the food, but the service was relatively poor. We felt a bit neglected, especially for a Saturday night. Would still go back for another chance, it was delicious.

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...

This restaurant is amazing. The food and drinks were outstanding. We got the Finish Line and Strawberry mimosas which were delicious. We had the brunch menu and ordered the chilaquiles and the lobster benedict, both were nothing but perfection. Definitely coming back and extremely recommend it.

I really enjoy the space at the outlook. Has huge windows for people watching and soaking in the atmosphere. We had a nice brunch for 6, food was good but best part was a really nice private table that was beautiful and interesting.

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!!

Thyme cocktail was basically lemonade with a sprig of thyme. Not well balanced, just sweet. Octopus appetizer was fishy. Duck fritters were almost entirely bread with no duck substance detectable. The scallop entree was 4 scallops on a large plate. Ordered the steak frites medium rare, but came well done. The look of the place is great, but everything else was lacking.

I think we came on an off morning but we had a terrible experience at Sunday brunch. They told us the bartender didn't show up that morning, so they could not serve alcohol. The service was very slow.

We had a good time with delicious food and great service. The crowd, in addition to the open space, does make it a little more noisy than a regular restaurant (similar to a bar’s noise level), so plz be alert if that’s what you’re looking for. The rooftop has fantastic view, and wasn’t that crowded on the weekdays so we were lucky. It’s overall a good experience.

We had the best dinner here that we have had so far in Boston. The food was outstanding. We started with a sausage and fennel
flatbread and blue fin tuna which were delicious. Our entrees included salmon, scallops, strip steak and lobster mac and cheese. I have to say we all loved our meals. Each dish was presented beautifully and full of flavor. The service was excellent. Thank you Tim for taking such good care of us. Such a great night. Will definitely be back soon.

They messed on up the same drink twice. The first time it was ordered and then the second time when we asked for another round. It was a prosecco and instead we got a mimosa. I understand once, but twice?

Disappointed with service and execution! When we arrived our waiter looked less enthusiastic to serve us. He brought water in plastic cups. I looked around and noticed tables around us had a mix of plastic cups and glasses. That looked tacky to me so I asked for glasses. Food was OK, nothing spectacular about it. After dinner, I mentioned to the manager that it was my birthday and we wanted to go to the Rooftop for drinks. He told us to go outside and get in line for that. I was surprised by the response, after spending a substantial amount of money on dinner you would assume it would be OK to go straight to the rooftop. We got in line, and was disappointed by what we saw. Apart from the views there’s nothing else to it. Very limited seating and you could barely hear the music!

Food was good but too pricy for the entire experience . Place was too loud, packed, service was poor and food took a while to be served. Overall, there are other places way much better for the same price.

My father was visiting and I spent some time trying to find sth different ... I failed

The food was very good and our server Michael was really wonderful. He was very attentive and friendly. It was a wonderful evening. The bar was a bit loud but it attracts a young hip crowd after work so it’s undrstandable and we could speak and hear our fellow diners
