A traditional seafood restaurant serving a varied menu suitable for a pleasingly business lunch. Attentive staff insures seamless service. A bit pricey, but, worth it while experiencing an elegant setting. Dinner menu changes daily, giving you a variety for repeat visits

This is a place your parents would have loved back in the Mad Men days. We liked it but didn't love it. We're more casual types and would not have been here if we didn't have a Chart House group gift card. It's in a...More

Located in a former bank the restaurant and surroundings have a very classy feel. High ceilings, white table cloth, professionally trained waiters and a long bar for those preferring that. The surroundings are fit for the lonely traveller, a couple like us, families or larger...More

great ambiance, service was incredible AND best seafood dinner I have had in a LONG time. I will visit them in other cities to compare but this was a great way to spend an evening with a loved one or heck by yourself even.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
