Our best dining experience in Boston. Our waiter, Danny, was pleasant and professional. We started with a delicious escargot. Our entrées, tuna and shrimp scampi were both excellently prepared. We enjoyed the meal and ambiance of this restaurant.

This past weekend, 12/11/16, I went to Marliave for the very 1st time for a friend's birthday dinner. A few of us got there early so we ordered drinks and a cheese plate at the bar. I got a glass of red wine along with the Tres Curieux and they were absolutely delicious. For the meal, we headed upstairs and... More

This is always a great choice for dining in an iconic Boston setting. They have terrific cocktails and a menu with a nice blend of the classics and modern favorites. I had dinner here last week with a friend and it was just as lovely as my last visit 6 months ago and the previous time, too. Consistently great.

The Marliave is located off the beaten path not far from the Common. We dined in a vintage room upstairs and every order was terrific. We love raw bar and the clams on the half were amazing. The mussels that followed were about the best I've eaten. Garlicky and yum. The entrees were a cider brined Berkshire chop and a... More

Our hotel manager recommended this restaurant to us the other night....it is tucked down a tiny little side street so could be a bit challenging to find. The restaurant itself has been in the same location for over 100 years. We started with escargot and Henri's onion soup -- very meaty broth - a hardy French onion soup. We shared... More

We have a thing for historic restaurants, so , after stumbling across the Marliave while staying at a nearby historic hotel, we decided to try it. The ambiance is delightful, and the menu is varied and inventive. The service,which includes unveiling entrees from under silver domes, was marred by delivery of a totally different eternal I had ordered, but it... More

This historic restaurant is often teeming with "millennials" who dominate the bar area. The restaurant has a nice ambiance, that is if you don't care to converse with your dinner partners because it is so noisy it is impossible to have a conversation. Food was good but not overly generous. Little necks nice and fresh.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
