This place blew us away this past week when we were in Boston on business. Smoked Fish App and both lobster rolls were absolutely fire. Will be back next time I’m in town.

Had a six o’clock reservation last night, seated right on time. Service was friendly and efficient. We shared the “fish board”, which was whitefish and bluefish pate, pimento shrimp, and BBQ rainbow trout. Comes with toast and crème fresh. SO good! I also had a...fried oyster slider for $5, she had the Whole Black Bass, which was delicious. Butterscotch pudding dessert to finish things off perfectly.More

After our first lunch at Row 34, we were so impressed we returned for another lunch and dinner. The food was excellent and the quality was consistent over our three visits. Highlights were the clam chowder, crab pasta, crab cake and oysters. Never before had...we seen such a variety of oysters on the one menu and they were delicious and fresh. The service was friendly and efficient. We appreciated one waiter who took the time to explain differences between the various oyster varieties. The only criticism was their tendency to try and seat customers on the high tables, even when we had booked a standard table. This was something we noticed with other patrons, even when the restaurant was relatively quiet.More

Row 34 has a great interior and although the weather didn’t allow I’m confident the outdoor seating is excellent in warmer/drier weather. The food was good (I opted for the fish sandwich) and the bier selection was even better -something for every taste. Staff was...also vey kind. Only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars was that I saw the lobster roll listed for $42 online but it was priced at a whopping $64 on the restaurant menu. But if you don’t mind paying $64 for a sandwich by all means go.More

We love Row 34 and visit just about every time we are in Boston. Excellent oyster selection, delicious hot lobster roll, and the rest of the seafood array. Great selection of craft beers on tap; always excellent friendly service…our server Brooke this time was terrific!...In the Seaport District.More

Wow. Service with Jack F. - on par- 5 stars. Phenomenal sharing of Boston info, recommendations and places to visit. Chefs kiss - smoked trout. Literally to “die for”. Make this your last bite. Buttery, light smoked morsel with a dill crème fraiche. OMG. Heaven...on a plate. Also had the calamari - best in my 49 ish years on the planet. Cooked to perfection. Beet salad was amaze balls. Shrimp cocktail worth the wait. Oysters - phenomenal. Row34 is worth the stop. Did not disappoint. Torontonian by birth. Bostonian as a rebirthed foodie.More

This was a great spot for a nice dinner. We shared several plates and we really enjoyed the Salmon Crudo. The prices seemed to be in line with other similar restaurants. The atmosphere was enjoyable and did not seem too loud. We did make reservations...which always help in quick seating. The arrival of the plates was spaced nicely as well. Service was good and we would return here.More

This is a large seafood restaurant on the edge of the Seaport. The food is excellent: my salmon over a corn ragout was terrific. Service is quick and friendly too. One drawback: It is loud inside, and if you are seeking to have a quiet...conversation this would not be my top choice. But to repeat, this is a first rate option.More

We moved away from Boston a year ago, this is our #1 pick for when we return and last night was the night. We were thirty minutes early but were quickly seated in the outside area. Jill took great care of us as we had...a few of their smoked options and other small plates, including the crab cake, both sliders, and a couple other items. Water pitcher was kept filled, and the warm chocolate chip cookie for dessert capped off an excellent mealMore

I’ve never been anywhere in the world where I’ve had a choice from 11 oyster varieties. Great service. Would highly recommend. Lovely food and drink. Atmosphere was good and very likely to do a return visit during our vacation

The food here was very good as was the service with just one glitch. There was a problem with one meal which was corrected so late that others were almost finished eating but the manager did apologize and comp that meal. Unfortunately, the noise levels...here are so high that none of us would choose to return.More
