"Byblos has fantastic Lebanese food which is always consistent. A definite family favorite. The wait staff worked hard and hustled through the crowd but their personalities could use some overhauling."

"Extensive GLUTEN-FREE MENU and NO-CORKAGE POLICY." <br /><br />Hurley's Restaurant & Bar is in the town of Yountville located in the heart of Napa Valley. The restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere where great food, wine and service come together. Executive Chef/owner, Bob Hurley combines fresh ingredients with a little Mediterranean flair to create a local California cuisine high in flavor. Wrought iron fencing encloses a large, heated patio for casual dining. Or relax and enjoy a drink at the lively bar that is graced by warm mahogany and amber lighting. The inside Dining Room, highlighted by a stone fireplace, is a favorite among locals and winemakers.<br /><br />The menu has been expanded to include late-night dining and can be enjoyed every evening (at the bar or on the heated patio) from 9pm to midnight.<br /><br />Hurley's Restaurant has the perfect dining areas for groups of varying sizes. The management staff will be happy to assist you to arrange your next party.

"This restaurant was highly recommended by some other tourists we ran into and received great reviews on Open Table. Thought we'd give it a try. Beautifull view if you sit outside. Appetizers were good, not great, but very pricey for the small dishes served (there were TWO whole squash blossoms). I did not like my entree, gnocchi with vegetables. It was in a brown butter sauce or I should say swimming in a brown butter sauce and had a strange flavor. My husband ordered the wild boar which he said was good but it was very dry. Did not bother with dessert. Will not be returning here if back in the area."

"The meal here started off rather strangely. Ordered the juicy dumplings which containes 6 (3 pork, 3 crab roe). We wanted all 6 to be pork. That was a decision that had to be made by the kitchen, not the waitress. Really? Wild Boar Noodles were very good. The Kung Pao chicken was not. Chicken was overcooked and dry and there was no sauce. When we told the waitress, she said she'd let the kitchen know. No taking it off our bill, no offering a different entree. That was $15 down the drain. I so wanted this to be a perfect experience but sadly it was not."

"The food was good, the service was good, the atmosphere was good. Nothing special or out of the ordinary. The fish was fresh but the sides were not great (i.e. the risotto). Our dessert was a total failure and the waiter took it off the menu. Overall, a decent meal was had by all but I can't say we'd rush to go back."

With our black pasta dish: Aglio Olio rated top 100 in the country, The Daily Catch - Seaport is considered by many as the best place to enjoy Pasta, Seafood and most importantly Calamari in Boston. Footsteps from the water, you can enjoy the ocean breeze while sipping wine or cocktails on our Outdoor Patio. Or you can sit in any of our newly renovated dinning rooms with stunning views of the Boston Harbor and City Skyline while taking in the aroma of fresh ingredients from our open kitchen. We are the #1 Seafood Restaurant in Boston's Seaport District according to Zagat Food Ratings. Your reservation is only a click away! Please note: The Daily Catch - Seaport gladly accepts online reservations for our indoor dining-room. We are, however, unable to accept online reservations for our outdoor patio due to our inability to guarantee favorable weather conditions. Patio seating is offered to patrons, as weather and availability permits, on a first-come, first-serve basis. Thank You!

"This was our first time eating here. The pros: friendly staff, good menu selection, yummy black pasta, excellent scallops, nice outdoor seating area. The cons: my yummy black pasta was swimming in about 3 sticks of butter with two heads of garlic. Way, way too much. Also, I feel the menu is very expensive and there are places nearby with a similar menu (maybe not the black pasta) that are not as pricey. We do not plan on going back any time soon."

"This restaurant is consistently good. We really enjoyed our dinner. The service was a little off perhaps due to it being extremely busy but overall it was a very enjoyable dining experience."

Legal Test Kitchen (LTK), a Legal Sea Foods concept, ventures into uncharted waters and pushes the boundaries of innovation in premium food and drink. Multicultural dining options and inspired seasonal cocktails cast a wide net in attracting those who have an appetite for fun. <br /><br /><br /><br />Located in the Seaport District, our restaurant is within easy walking distance to the Institute of Contemporary Art, the World Trade Center, the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, the Bank of America Pavilion and hotels including the Renaissance Boston, Westin Waterfront and Seaport. LTK is both a destination and neighborhood hangout and our extended hours of operation make us a late night lure. <br /><br /><br /><br />In season, you can eat sea fare while smelling the salt air in our patio seating. <br />

"This was our first time here. I thought the place smelled old when we walked in and the decor looked old. However, the food was very good and fresh and arrived at our table quickly and piping hot. The service was also very good. We would definitely go back."
