Another simply outstanding meal. They serve Krug by the half bottle which we love. Susan and Janice are "rock star" servers never saying no to our requests. The food is well prepared and delicious. Outdoor seating has a spectacular view.

We went for our anniversary. The dessert plate I ordered had Happy Anniversary written in chocolate ganache on it next to the dessert itself.
Thoughtful and unexpected surprise by the restaurant. Food and service were great as always even though it was their first weekend open during the quarantine. Grilled halibut Provençal was mouth watering.

We visited on the second day of opening after COVID closure. The staff were extremely well prepared for and respectful of COVID precautions, with options offered based on customer comfort level. We chose to have our food and beverages served on disposable plastic, versus dishes, silverware and glasses. Everything was served with masks and gloves. We sat on the terrace overlooking the Harbor, which is a beautiful view. The food was delicious. This was a special occasion and they were mindful to make it special for us. Wonderful experience.

The restaurant was sparkly clean, the food was prepared immaculately, delicious, and arranged beautifully in the buffet. The staff was exceptionally attentive. I have eaten here on four occasions and I have nothing but positive things to say about the restaurant. For the record, I almost never post reviews, but I have been so impressed with the restaurant and my stay at the Boston Harbor Hotel that they have earned the extra effort it takes for me to make this post.

I ordered the clam chowder and the wife the lobster. Both were beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. The service rendered by Adrian was phenomenal. The conversation was full of genuine curiosity and interest while remaining courteous to our meal time. We ate at this location for breakfast where I had the ricotta and lemon pancakes, not to be beat. Highly recommended.

We were there for new year and the experience was wonderful. Abundant and excellent food. Our waitress was very attentive (forgot her name, I think was something like Maylenna). She also deserves credit for this rate.

My husband and I have serious allergies that are a huge concern when eating out. I've never felt safer than at RWSG. Every app, entree, and dessert we've had there has been cooked to perfection. Along with staff that is attentive and caring and a location that can't be beat, you'll not find a better meal in Boston.

The food was excellent and the service was good, but it was rather expensive for a dinner out. I had the mushroom soup, crab cakes and halibut. All wee excellent. Most people felt it was too much food.

There was a fixed price menu for New Year's Eve, for which there were two seatings. We had reservations for the second. I thought they'd have been better prepared. Th restaurant called ahead of time and questioned about food allergies, but our waiter hadn't been told. Service was just...lacking. It was so difficult to catch waiter's attention, and once he took our orders someone else delivered everything. Pre-dinner cocktails were hard to order and slow in coming - the wine came before they did. We never got to order more wine. Getting coffee with our dessert wasn't possible...it came after dessert. The menu offered multiple selections for each of the four courses. The lobster bisque and chocolate dessert were my best choices. I had crab cakes but they were not as good as Legal Seafood's. My husband and I both had the filet and mine was overcooked. The final bothersome issue was that I let the restaurant know ahead of time that Dec 31st was our 10th wedding anniversary, and we were unfortunately seated at the smallest table for two tucked against a wall. Luckily we were in good humor, enjoy each other's company, and took it all in stride.

Only reason I did not give food a 5 was because my fish was quite a bit too salty. Tasted like it was brined - not my favorite.

Ate here several times during our stay at th Boston Harbor Hotel. Excellent food on all occasions, including breakfast (4 times), Sunday buffet, and dinner (the latter 4 times, incl. room service). Favorite main courses were the duck, the butter-poached lobster, and the halibut.

Not worth it for Thanksgiving. It wasn’t advertised as a buffet before 4. Did not have many accommodations for kids, which went against the advertising. 70$ for a buffet thanksgiving is just not worth the money. Server was not very communicative of what our dining options were as you could order off the regular menu or have the buffet. The experience was so disappointing for our family outing. My daughter hardly ate for 30$. It was like lighting money on fire. Maybe it’s better for regular service, but I would pass for Thanksgiving especially if you eat before 4.
