No, sorry....where do you people normally eat? Mcdonalds?? It was good, I guess. And yes, I had the premier "lobster 3 course" dinner, and had a dozen oysters for appetizers. Ok....I guess I didn't eat what you had. And it was decent, 3 stars, but 5 stars!?? It's a food factory, it's not fine dining by any means. Sorry to burst your bubble. If you're looking for good decent food at standard prices with ok service, than this is your place. If you're thinking fine dining 5 stars, keep driving.
This is the second time I've eaten here in two years and I must say its beautiful. The restaurants intimate but the views are spectacular and the food AND service are a step ahead. Start with the food, I had the giglante de peici(bad spelling) and it's a plate of everything, scallops, lobster, fish, shrimp, and langestein all of it grilled. It was fresh and tasty not over seasoned. The clams were fresh and service was some of the best. Next year I will definitely return. Tip...go early.
It's the best food, and by far, best service I've experienced in a long time. The staff members are courteous, friendly and really know their products. It's a beautiful place with lots of "oyster bar" charm. The owner/host is accommodating, charming, and makes everyone feel welcome.If there were more stars available, I'd give more! I can;t wait to return next time I'm in Boston.
Ate here as it was close to children's museum. Enjoyed our lunch and had a good server. Crab dip appetizer was delicious. Burger was 1/2 lbs, split it and had enough. Crab chowder was good. Bowl was sufficient for a meal.Kids menu includes fish, burger, hotdog, and Mac N cheese.Outdoor seating had live band. Indoor seating is tight.
ok iv been here about 5 times ,rather take food to go, due to messy establiashment,but over all there salt and pepper shrimp and lobster is awsome ,thier service also needs some work,before i could even put tip down ,waiter was down my thraot saying no tip,id rather take it out ,overall good food
Ate on the bar and had the daily special, wild salmon on a "capressi salad and a mug of clam chowder. The salmon was cooked just right and the bed of heirloom tomatoes with capressi cheese really was a nice combo. The place is packed so reservations in advance our suggested.
This is the second time we ate at Mare at its new location. We started with the crab cake and bruschetta salad. Both are delicious. We then proceeded to enjoy the lobster ravioli and lobster casserole. Both are really good. We hope to return to Mare in future.
Very popular place - chose to eat at the bar since it was a wait for the table. A bartender, Amelia, greeted me with a friendly smile and recommended the chowder and sole. Both were terrific and the service was excellent.
If you like seafood and are in Boston this is a great place to stop for a meal. I was never disappointed in any of my selections especially the oysters.
Legal Harborside Seafood is totally the best seafood restaurant I've ever been at if you like fresh oysters or clams raw this is the place to go
