We had a fantastic dinner at Row 34 tonight. We couldn’t decide between appetizers, so we just ordered them all (except for the chowder, because we just didn’t feel like having chowder), plus a glass each of their sparkling wine, and called it dinner. Plus the Cured and Smoked Board to start. Good lord what a feast. In between appetizer courses we switched to IPAs (I know, quite a jump from sparkling wine, but the menu and our thirst level demanded it). Our server didn’t blink. He advised us on beer pairing with a twinkle in his eye, and made sure timing was right so the table wouldn’t be overwhelmed with plates. And what plates! That Cured and Smoked Board is to die for — the uni toast is unctuous and decadent, and balanced well with the rest of the board, which includes bread, house-made pickles, and creme fraiche. The steamed mussels are savory, not overly salted (a common error), and spiked with coins of chorizo. The two salads were beautiful, so tasty, and perfectly dressed — although the snap pea salad was a tad fibrous. The salmon collar? If you order no other app during your visit, order this one if it’s available. It was cooked to tender, crisp-skinned perfection and served with a glaze that was a sweet-umami delight. Of course we had to try a dessert after dinner. If cheesecake is on the menu, and you like cheesecake, order it. It’s custardy, luscious, and served with macerated strawberries and a cannelle of barely sweetened whipped cream. Try it with a blushy dessert wine and your evening will be complete.

We had our first oyster experience at Row 34, and it was tasty! Jesse helped us determine our food based on preferences and what’s amazing here. Oysters were great (from newbies). The tuna crisp was AMAZING!!!! And the chicken salad (sub shrimp) was delicious. Our experience was fabulous! Jesse paired champagne and beer (respectively) with our food for us. All around, we loved our visit!!

Row 34 is a fantastic spot for fresh delicious seafood and craft beer. My wife and I visited for dinner and waited about 30 minutes for a table. We started with a dozen oysters from various parts of the New England area and they were fresh and delicious! Next we had the Warm Buttered Lobster Roll. The roll was warm and soft and filled with a generous portion of fresh, tender, and buttery lobster. The restaurant also has a large selection of craft beer on draft and in bottles including numerous local options. The restaurant could be successful solely as a craft beer bar. Overall, Row 34 is a must visit when in Boston.

Taken here so be prepared to wait. Tuesday night was busy so we had an hour wait for a table at this hip seafood place. Tuna ceviche was awesome order lots. Rest of the meals were also very good. Lobster rolls really good and the squid pasta and other . Service started strong but faded at the end, the only reason it's not a five star review.

The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated. We had oysters which were fresh and excellent. The seafood entrees were wonderful as well. Our server was a delight.
