Staff is well training and very attentive. Besides food one criteria I judge a restaurant on is attention to details. A pet peeve is always having to ask for water. Server ALWAYS kept glasses FULL even though a bottle of water was left on table. Row 34 passes that test.

We were there for lunch. I had the Tuna Pole Bowl and it was delicious. My colleague had the fish sandwich that came with what appeared to be homemade chips (crisps) which I stole every time he looked away. My first time there and commenting on foot. Was a bit difficult to find.

Outstanding food and service, plus an energetic atmosphere! Went here for the oysters and was not disappointed. The shuckers did a great job of separation and presentation. The beer selection was fantastic, one of the best I have seen in a while. Love the Rothaus! Our fish was also fantastic, no complaints. My only criticism is there should be a tart desert (key lime or lemon ice box) to counter the seafood. Recommended!

Your Front of House needs retraining especially they are the very first group of people most guests will meet and the faces of your establishment. Our experience on Sunday, March 1st for Brunch was our first and could lead to our last at Row34 simply because of one of the front desk staff that was working Sunday Brunch shift with a terrible front of house attitude.

My husband and I came to your restaurant as it came highly recommended to us by our Bostonian friends who frequent your establishment. As we've just moved into the West Square on Friday night and will be staying in Boston for the next 4 months to film our AMC new drama series. Our friends took us to lunch at Legal Sea Food at Harborside and proceeded to give us a few neighborhood eateries so we can explore. They know we will be working long hours and won't be cooking much.

We would have bring the rest of the productions cast and crew over to frequent your restaurant if our experience there was similar to that we had on Saturday night at Blue Dragon. We certain we won't now with the cold and unwelcoming attitude I was shown by your front greeter on Sunday. The experience left me with a soured taste, even though your Brunch menu was delicious. We had ceviche, oysters, shrimp & grit, calamari, and scramble egg. All are fresh and delicious - though we have a home in Tulum, Mexico and ceviche portion is generous for the same price at Row34. Your ceviche portion is smaller than tapas side dishes for $14 & $15 price point, the portion is small. Our previous evening dinner experience at Blue Dragon was the exact opposite. It was both warm and fun with every one who worked there seemed to have a great time with their work that it did not feel like they were working but were having fun with guests at their place. The food was excellent and the service was welcoming to us as newcomers to the neighborhood. We will certainly be there again and again from now until July when the filming is wrapped.

Got there early, our table was ready! Did not once feel rushed by the waiter. Oysters and ceviche were delicious. We enjoyed the tuna tartare as well. Then we split a couple of dinner options. Didn't taste one bad thing between the beer and food all night. We had a great time and will be coming back at some point! It's worth booking far out if you have to!

I’d been before and it was excellent. This time was just eh. Fish slightly overcooked and it isnt cheap so I expected a bit better. Especially after my previous experience. Just OK.

I had a business lunch here and was specifically looking for a place that serves good lobster and fish. The food was absolutely delicious, the ceviches are to die for. The restaurant itself is very cool - high ceilings, steel and brick. Would definitely come back here next time I am in Boston.

Amazing restaurant. Great assortment of seafood, loved the oysters and the sauces that accompanied them. Loved our server too, she was so nice. If I had to pick a flaw it would be the wine list. Considering that it’s beer and wine only, no liquor, there weren’t a lot of options for wine by the glass. We opted for a bottle thinking it would also save us a little money, however it ended up being pretty much a wash because of how high the bottles were marked up. Would still definitely recommend for dinner though, it was an overall great experience.

We didn't check out the menu before we booked it. I was having lunch with my sister. We wanted martinis but they only had beer and wine. We stayed for a glass of vino and some mussels. It was great. I remember this for the next time I just want wine or beer. I will definitely go back to try the rest of the menu

The crunchy fish sandwich, fries and Brussels sprouts were fantastic and so was the service. Great place to share a special meal with a friend visiting from out of the country who wanted delish seafood!
