Food is consistently good, but it would have been nice to know ahead of time that they were in the middle of a remodel.

This is my favorite restaurant. We enjoy coming here after the show at the Carpenter Center. We both had the Chilean Sea Bass. The best ever! It was so light and flaky. It just melted in our mouth. Parking is hard to come by, so we just used the valet. Very convenient! Our waiter, Austin, was great!! Can't wait to come back. Love that the view also includes the Queen Mary.

The location and ambience was wonderful. Option to sit inside or outside waterfront. Outside has wind blockers and heat lamps.
Service was pretty good but restaurant made no acknowledgement of celebration of special occasion.
Food was fine but nothing special. Best dish was probably the clam chowder. Seafood pasta was so so, a bit salty though the seafood was fresh. Fish and chips was good but for the price is not as good value.
Overall it was still enjoyable but definitely room for improvement.

We were celebrating our 30th anniversary. We we seated at a table next to some pretty loud and obnoxious guests. We were seated at 6:00, ordered our appetizers and entrees at 6:15 and didn’t see any food until 7:00. We ordered shrimp cocktail and sushi for appetizers and it took 45 minutes to get just that. The entrees about 15 to 20 minutes longer. The waiter was only attentive to the six obnoxious folks at the next table, continuously bringing drinks and checking on them. We felt that it was because there was more of them and the tip would be better. Horrible service. And trying to pay the check was no picnic either. Took over 15 minutes to get the waiters attention, even though he was at the loud table next to us, taking more drink and desert orders. The food was mediocre at best.

The views were amazing. The food was good ,but way over priced. We are from the east coast, Mass .
Two drinks each $60 could have purchased to Large bottles of Tito's for that. Again beautiful views ,not impressed with the food and drinks whatsoever.

The view is amazing. The food was good especially the lobster roll. The only downside is there was no bottomless mimosa option you pay by the glass.

Fish Tacos were skimpy on the fish and not well-presented
Service was a little slow - can't tell if it was the kitchen (most likely) vs the wait staff

Environment is beautiful; wait staff was fantastic. My lunch companion’s baramundi was excellent but the chicken on my salad was very tough and overcooked—couldn’t eat it and should have sent it back but did not. Overall a bit pricey considering.

The food was good. The family enjoyed the food. The service was bad.the server brand out the main dish first then salad after then soup after that. Then brought out bread last. We jeep have to ask to fill up our drinks. I think the drinks should come first then salad or soup then main course. Had to eat my steak first so it won’t get cold. I don’t think we will cow back. I paid a lot dinner

I have been going to Parker’s Lighthouse for years and will continue. The food was good and the service was really good! The ambiance is nice and the nighttime views are beautiful! They did make a few changes to the menu items, so I missed having my cheese toast with the seafood linguine. Still good, though!

Parker’s had good setting for my occasion. Very formal, service was also great with how they spoke to us and took care of us. Only complain was on our food we got the salmon ponzu roll and it did not really have too much ponzu on it and was not as good as the first time I had it, but still was greater.

Not handicapped accessible. Went with a person in a wheelchair. Bathroom was upstairs and there was no elevator access available to us. I had to take her to a public bathroom in another building. Life is hard enough folks. Spent over $309 on lunch, spent 2.5 hours because the staff was low, and couldn’t use a restroom.

We were seated outside giving us a magnificent view of the Queen Mary. Our waiter, Mario C. was proficient and courteous. My friend and I were out for a day of catching up. The waiter did not rush us. Everything was just perfect. Thank you for a memorable day and scrumptious lunch.

Overall a nice experience. Originally we were seated inside but the chairs at our table were not clean. Waitress left to get someone to clean them but after 5 minutes of standing, we went back outside to the hostess desk and were re-seated outdoors. From then on everything was good. Good food and service.

The service was good and the food was good however, it was very disappointing that we came on our anniversary, which was written in our reservation and mentioned during dinner by us but was not acknowledged once by any one on the service team, nor was anything done. We had an anniversary dinner last year at a similar priced establishment, but their service was top notch and not only were we told happy anniversary by everyone we encountered, we also got an anniversary dessert, just because they saw it in our reservation notes. Not trying to sound horrible but when you pick a restaurant to celebrate a special event, you want it to feel special and not just like any other dinner out.
