Newton >Riverbend Bar & Grill
Very nice for a local restaurant, as well as in hotel. I've been there twice in the last yr. I wouldn't say it's "romantic", but it is a nice space. They may have renovated since '06, as there are lots of booths, and the tables aren't close together. I recommend the lamb and the lobster mac & cheese.
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors. Newton Marriott's house restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner to go along with river views.
Not the romance I was looking for. My husband and I were looking for a quiet romantic place for our first night out in months. Reviews listed this place as romantic but it was not what I was expecting. It was a nice place but if you are looking for romantic this isn't really it. We did have a wonderful waterfront view and it is quiet, relaxed place to eat. The food was not spectacular but it was good. However, my husband had the Lobster Bisque and for $8/ bowl it was below expectations.
Excellent Restaurant, a new regular!. I was astonished by a hotel restuarant being this good. I have dined in many hotel restaurants and this compares to some of the Big name Steak & Seafood restaurants in Boston! Great Service, Great Food, Beautiful View. I was nervious after reading a bad review about Lamb, but I didn't even see Lamb on the dinner menu! The Sirloin was great and my husband had the best Halibut he has ever tasted! I found the Waiter to be very knowledgable. Suggested some great pairing wines! I have since returned 4 times in the last 2 weeksfor all different meal periods!!! Each time it gets better.
Great Food, Great Service!!!!. What else could you look for in a restaurant? I read a review about bad Lamb... I had the Lamb and I thought it was better than Capital Grill's!!! Do not know what the previous review was talking about. The server did such a good job. I was amazed at her knoledge of both Wine and Food. I would highely Recommend this Restaurant.
Cold rack of lamb w/fake green mint jello!. Major disappointment. Rack of lamb was cold, sloppily prepared, mint jelly was Stop & Shop's own brand, I bet. Waitstaff zombie-like, not knowledgeable of food or wines. I wouldn't go back if it were free.
Absolutely Fabulous!!!. This is the best deal in the city. Unbelievable Filet mignon for under $25, great wine list and service was uncomparable. Very unusual for a hotel restaurant!!! I have since been back for their breakfast buffet and found myself a regular customer. Great location @ mass pike & 128. I now host all business meeting there!
