Dining next to the fireplace was a respite from the cold and rainy January night. Our server was very attentive and provided details of several items due to some dietary issues. The crab cakes were good with a spicy aoli. The Ipswich clams were tasty with a bed of tarter sauce. The diver scallops were perfectly cooked and beautifully presented.... More

This is the perfect go to place for both a dinner/night out or meeting friends at the bar for cocktails and light bites. The fish is amazingly fresh and prepared beautifully. If you love wine, very impressive wine list.

Great Fish dishes and wine list. Comfortable booths as well as tables. Right in the middle of Marlborough near Starbuck. Plenty of parking in the adjacent lot and surrounding area.

Nice bar with gas fireplace. Good wine list and other drinks. Can't speak to the food. Had the cheese plate that was good. Bar atmosphere was great, cozy, busy but not too busy that you couldn't get a drink efficiently and good set up with several high tables. Visited on a Thursday evening

Was impressed with the food and service from our waiter but overall service from the manager and restaurant was disappointing and downright insulting! I chose this place for the food and wine and for a business holiday lunch. Over the course of 4 hours we had bread, 3 appetizers, 3 entrees and 3 bottles of wine along with water throughout... More

Not fond of the decor or ambiance for this price range. Wine recommended was great. Octopus appetizer was good, not great as it was served with chick peas or the like. Baked haddock was not as good as haddock normally is. Service was sluggish. Price was reasonable.

For the money in Marlborough, you should should expect more. Fish used to be really good and could get one to overlook the strip-mallish location, but ownership and management changed and it has definitely degraded. Still expensive, but the service is now spotty and food hit-or-miss. Sadly, there are no really good business-suitable restaurants left in Marlborough.

We met friends here. Service was good. Ambience was good too. Wine list was decent also. .... Apps (Octopus was average, Oysters too). Main course Tuna/Corridor was just ok. Saw Restaurant on Phantom Gourmet ---did not live to their ranking ........Restaurant just falls short of great restaurants due to food. Bathrooms according to my wife were a "5" after last... More
