Crab cakes at this place use to be my favorite when I lived in Boston. So here I came back and they still are as good, especially the appetizer ones with avocado! A bit sad about the service, slow and not friendly.

Amazing restaurant, amazing service, waiter was very knowledgeable of the food and wine selection. I work at The Westin Houston Downtown and I know amazing service when I see it, my waiter was ED and I truly recommend him and the restaurant.

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

It is a little more formal, but casual nice is good too. The earlier you go the more causal, I would say. Later in the evening, I would not wear shorts.
