Terribly ordinary and very much overpriced.
By A Yahoo! Contributor, 10/25/07
As a native Bostonian I am surprised that I picked this place. Thought it had a great reputation but was surprised with overcooked boiled lobster (what could be easier to cook?) and priced at $85!! Other fish
dishes like Red Snapper and Salmon equally overpriced
and nothing special. No tablecloth..a sad disappointment. LEGAL SEA FOOD and that old standby PIER IV (which has free parking!!) would have been a much better meal and a nicer atmosphere.
How do they get such good waitstaff
My wife and I were in Boston for our 25th wedding anniversary and we were looking for an elegant spot with linen table clothes and great seafood. Fortunately the hotel concierge understood exactly what we were looking for and recommended Turners Fisheries, which was a restaurant in a different hotel. When we arrived I was a little concerned because it is a hotel restaurant, but it was wonderful. The crab cakes were the best I have had in Boston. The even had some outstanding wines in half bottles and glasses. My wife and I enjoyed different wines. She like sweet and I prefer dry. They had Puligny-Montrachet in a half bottle and that is a rare find. The dessert menu was also very good. I simply cannot recommend this restaurant enough if you are looking for an outstanding dining experience. One caution; we had one cocktail each, appetizers, rather expensive wine, dinner, and dessert for two and the bill was $200. For me, it was well worth it on this special occasion and I would gladly do it again. However, you should be aware of the cost. Bon Appetite.
