    WOW. Coming from out of town we really wanted some good seafood - this place hit. The energy was popping, the service was attentive and gave great recommendations. The oyster selection was fantastic and the salmon crudo was beyond fresh. The buttered lobster roll had us speechless - chips were crispy. Ended our meal with the chocolate chip cookie and a scoop of ice cream. Delish. We will definitely be back!

    Overall very disappointing- have been to multiple locations and previously had a good experience, but this time was quite different. The oysters were quality as always, but our mussels were bad, probably a few days spoiled, and had to be sent back. Tartare was also very mediocre, and drinks took a long time to be refilled Service was challenging as our server was nice and accommodating despite the challenges with our food, but they were seriously understaffed and couldn’t accommodate for the parties in the room. Clearly needed more people, and things moved very very slow I would expect this from a typical pub/bar, but when spending a few hundred dollars you should turn elsewhere

    Aside from some weirdness at checkin, it was a really great meal. Our server Michelle was excellent and the food was pretty perfect. The front of house manager saved us from the checkin staff and turned an unpleasant start in a great experience. Note. If your customers have arrived and checked in and are standing 5 feet from you, where you told them to stand, don't text them (the text leads back to open table) telling them the table is ready and asking if they are on their way. Just look up.

    The entire staff in the bar area seemed to be having a really bad day! No one returned smiles, the bartenders (# different guys) were so abrupt as to border rude. Noise in that area was high enough to make it difficult to hear/ order/ask any questions. We tipped 20% plus, due to an attempt to remember staffing difficulities in this day of covid. Chrisian, our waiter, was great, as was the red haired manager who was overseeing the restaurant.

    My husband and I reconnected and then got married at Row 34. We recently came back to Boston to visit and made sure we had dinner there. The staff couldn’t have been more warm and welcoming. The service was exceptional. Every member of the team make sure we felt incredibly special and taken care of. And of course the food was delicious. Thank you Row 34 team for making our visit so special. You’re truly an amazing place!

    Recommended by a customer. Made a reservation a week in advance as they book up fast and for good reason! Drinks were great and strong at a typical price. Highly recommend the appetizers and crude and of course the oysters. We decided to eat “tapa style” and share a LOT of different items rather than get a main course and of course the oysters! Servers and staff very friendly and we followed their recommendations to a tee. Highly recommend!

    I had a simple lunch for one, at the bar. The service was not so great … everyone behind the bar seemed to be distracted … but it really wasn’t a big deal. After the super fresh and delicious Duxbury oysters arrived, plus the warm buttered lobster roll, I was in heaven. Add a nice Bloody Mary, and this was as good as it gets! So good.

    Food was great, fresh and well prepared. Our server appeared miserable. Never once cracked a smile. I was entertaining a friend from out of town for a long weekend. We went out for lunch and dinner very day for several days. Everywhere we went over the past few days we noticed friendly service until we got to Row 34. She was just miserable and unpleasant and it dampened our experience.

    If lobster rolls are your thing, this is the place. Really limited wine selection but we found a great - if unusual- red from Tenerife. Crab cakes are awesome. Tuna is spectacular. Skip the banoffe pie. Amazing date night.

    For my birthday we planned our first trip to Boston, I read a TON of articles and Row 34 was written about as one of the top restaurants for a lobster roll. Well they sure didn’t disappoint! The lobster was divine! We enjoyed a bunch of oysters and calamari as well. Our server, Thomas, was amazing! He described each type of oyster and was super knowledgeable. We will be back!

    Having the Seafood tower was the best experience while the service was subpar. Seafood tower had interesting ceviches. Bucatini was too heavy and had too much garlic. It lacked squid ink flavor. I’ve had better clam chowder at museums in the area - this one had too much potatoes and not enough clams. Generally the food was salty.

    Shellfish tower: oysters were too salty. Shrimps we’re good flavor but a bit hard (overcooked?). Ceviche tacos were good. The other ceviche (on a shell) had pineapple pieces that didn’t quite worked… the plantain and cassava chips weren’t as crispy as expected… white wine list was ok. Service was average. It was pretty busy but not providing ice bucket for white wine or cleaning the table after all the water dripping from the tower was kind of … Sadly we didn’t had the interest to order entrees or dessert after the “raw bar experience”

    The oysters were superb, the caviar toast was delicious, lettuce cups were very yummy, and the cornbread was awesome. The only thing I would not order again was the green salad, which was just kind of boring. Just like the salad I make at home. But all the food was extremely fresh and tasty. I would definitely go back for a special occasions.

    First time here in quite a while. Had a great waitress. Oysters were good but the food menu selection was limited. Biggest downer was the huge increase in prices. This has been our experience here and elsewhere. It makes us more reluctant to go out.
