Great time for a birthday celebration!
Crystal our waitress was lovely. The food is always delicious and again did not disappoint. They took some items off the menu and we missed our seafood pizza. Paul the manager corrected a hiccup. Overall it was excellent!
Fresh and tasty seafood. Exceptional service and nice atmosphere. Would highly recommend.
We love the restaurant.. it’s one if not our favorite when visiting Boston. The food is superb, service excellent and the environment very friendly.
Went for anniversary dinner with the hubz.
Place is very nice, tables spaced well. Loved the patio area.
Wine list had great selection at all price points.
We shared the octopus appetizer (with eggplant burrata) which was AMAZING! Hubz had the linguini with clams and I had tagliatelle with lobster. Both were good but the appetizer blew them away.
Why not 5 stars? Service was meh. Not sure if they were short a person, or had some training issues or if being back with full tables was stressing but... The waitress was not very talkative and seemed stressed, the busboy was lost/not paying attention. We waited 20 minutes after our plates were cleared before snagging the manager (which I hate to do) to get our check. Would have stayed for coffee but the service was getting slower and slower.
I'd go back for that octopus though.
Amazing service and even more amazing food! Would highly recommend anyone come here for a special occasion
Lovey date & delicious drinks
One of my favorites and lived up to its reputation. Hasn't missed a beat through COVID and it was packed on a wet night - testimony to the loyal customer base it has.
Great selection of seafood. Great cocktails
We had a very interesting evening. I was there with my great niece (17 yoa) and were offered a table by the door. I asked to sit elsewhere but was told there was only one other option which we declined. As we were ordering 4 men in the 30-40s came in and were seated next to us. They were loud and crude with every other word being a profanity. I looked around to find some waitstaff to see if we could be relocated. I couldn’t find any. I knew it was only going to get worse as they ordered shots and continued with their profanity. A few minutes later the manager/owner came up and asked if we wanted to be reseated. I said yes. He then went to the table and asked the men to stop with the profanity. We were reseated and the men ordered food. A few minutes later a table of other men were speaking with the manager/owner at which point the manager owner and one of the men went over to the table of 4. Shortly thereafter the 4 men left. So the restaurant handled it well.
Now our meal was delicious. I had tagliatelle with lobster and truffles and cherry tomatoes. It was so very good. Then even though I am nit a big dessert person I ordered the tiramisu. They made it up in front of me. Nice touch and also very good. Thus I give them high marks for the way they handled us and the obnoxious guys along with delicious pasta.
Wonderful birthday dinner. Seafood is so fresh and prepared perfectly. Raw oyster bar had a good variety and they were delicious. My favorite restaurant in the North End!
We love the location and the vibe is usually pretty good. The service is always exceptional. Having been here several times with multiple friends, for the first time two of our party of four were unimpressed with their meals, both seafood dishes.
Repeat diner, terrible experience this time. Waited 20 minutes for water to get to the table. Ended up leaving after appetizers and going elsewhere.
Our waiter, Rosario, was so great and accommodating. The food and ambience were perfect, but Rosario took it to the next level. Awesome service. We will return and hope he is our waiter!
The best seafood, one of the top 10 meals ive had in Boston
Great time for a small group dinner with coworkers!
Great food, great atmosphere, great service!
Mare was a great experience. The food was so good, although, it is not necessarily traditional Italian food. For appetizers, we had oysters and the grilled octopus which was amazing! I had the Branzino which fileted in the kitchen and delicious! My husband had the Frutti de Mare, which was good, yet messy to eat. Aside from the fact that our waittress did not warn us about cracking the lobster shells and peelingthe shrimp ourselves in the Frutti de Mare, she was outstanding! She recommended a great wine and did tell us that the Frutti de Mare is large. We will definitely dine again here and would like to try their dessert next time. Overall, a great North End dinner.
The ambiance was nice but food lacked flavor
Great night out! Beautiful atmosphere and yummy food! Loved it! Cant wait to go back!
Lovely food (very pricey) but worth it for a nice meal out. All the staff were incredibly friendly, professional, attentive, and kind. Service was great. Really great drinks, too.
Excellent server, Grace made our special night out even more special!! Her recommendation of the tiramisu ...YUM!!
We will return
Great dinner! Would recommend. Great bar and spacing of tables was good.
Everyone loved their apps of oysters and lobster bisque. The entrees were excellent and the staff was friendly and attentive. We sat on the deck with plastic walls pulled down. It did get a little chilly, but I didn’t notice it being loud like other reviews have mentioned. Will return.
The food was very good everything was excellent our waiter Lucas was exceptional definitely recommend this place and definitely will be back
As usual, a great dining experience. The food and service was over the top. Private dining suite and Chefs Dessert sampler was a great touch. Linguine and clam macchiato, the best I’ve ever had. We’ll be looking forward to going back soon.
Food, service, ambiance!!! Everything is so good.
Expensive but probably the freshest seafood I have ever rated !!! Absolutely amazing
Overhyped and overpriced. Wouldn’t go back.
Lobster ravioli was amazing. Everything else was - eh. The lobster mashed potatoes were actually terrible - we didn’t eat them. Asked for some extra sauce from the ravioli to put on them to make them edible - and they charged us extra. Wouldn’t go back.
Delightful evening with spendid seafood; my black truffle encrusted tuna paired exquisitely with the 2017 Napa Valley Silverado sauvignon blanc! Wait staff were excellent!
Everything was excellent
We had a great dinner and experience!!!
Everything was sooo good
We thought we were seated too close to a couple next to us. Also, the music and noise levels were very high, too high.
I wasn’t really fond of my waiter home he wasn’t around a lot but the food was delicious it is on the more pricier side but I think it’s worth it
the food was excellent but pricey. Beautiful restaurant
Will be going back soon!!!
