I love the food at Wharf 88 and this time the chef tried a Mexican flavor. It was a success, very delicious. We’ve been here before and loved it but, this time with the new flavor it was outstanding. Now I call it the “former wait staff curse”, you notice things and they irk you. The service was the worst.... More

I got the Steak Frites and it was fantastic, we sat on the patio overlooking the quiet river and it was peaceful and serene. The inside dining room looked just as quaint for cooler months. The server was very informative and quick. I will be back!

This restaurant inside a condo building on Neponset River has a lovely little bar and a good clientele. The restaurant is large and open, very noisy. The food is good but the menu very limited and a touch foo foo exotic. Overpriced.

Nice place to take someone on a date. The cocktails are good and the crab cakes are big and delicious. I ordered the risotto with scallops and shrimp and my friend ordered a pizza. My entree was a bit salty. 88 Wharf has outdoor seating with a nice view.

88 Wharf has one of the most scenic outdoor dining areas in greater Boston. The Neponset River and the moored boats are a pretty picture for those eating on the patio. The patio seating is very comfortable. The patio itself has attractive plantings and flower beds, so overall the outside experience is extremely pleasant. The interior seating appears attractive and... More

This was our fourth visit to 88 Wharf in the last couple months, and we have had consistently good food on each visit. In particular, excellent fish tacos, sea bass special, crispy salmon - always a good burger and a beer thrown in free on Monday nights. Enjoyed the soba/salmon salad as well. Quiet and peaceful inside, and very pleasant... More

Our server was very attentive. The atmosphere was cozy and comfortable. Nice views of the waterfront. The food was great and came out quickly. I had the chicken piccata and it was perfect. A lot of the parking seemed to be reserved and it wasn't very clear where to park if you were just coming to eat but that was... More

The view here is lovely -- order a drink, sit outside, and enjoy the little estuarial basin of the Neponset. Food was disappointing -- bland, boring, expensive. Service was slow.
