    The drinks took too long. Not sure if our server had tables in different areas and pricy for wine. Some plates were pre bussed but then others left on table. My wine carafe was chipped The calamari was blah is it frozen? Tastes cheap

    The service was extremely low. The server spilled wine both times. I felt the oysters may have be frozen. The location and the ambiance are the best things about the Boathouse.

    The kitchen was behind which impacted the time it took to get our food. Over two and a half hours is far too long to sit for a meal with two children under the age of ten.

    The food was excellent, no complaints there. The low rating is due to the fact that food delivery was extremely slow. We arrived at 4:30pm and it took 3.5 hours to complete the meal. We did not dilly, it took nearly two hours for the entrees to arrive. When I asked if they were understaffed, the server said no, the kitchen had just under-estimated reservations and had not done enough prep work. It was Mother’s Day! Our server was nice and friendly but did not check in with us for a whole hour while we were waiting for our entrees and apologized only at delivery. Additionally, they kept a lot of people waiting in the lobby while there were many empty tables. I do not understand why they did not seat those people - it’s more comfortable to wait at a table than in the lobby. The restaurant should have informed customers (both those waiting in the lobby and waiting at tables) that food delivery is unusually slow and apologize for it. Many customers can be quite understanding when the situation is explained. Next time, just let us know what’s going on…and also, plan ahead for Mother’s Day. All the best to the crew. I’ll still be back but hope not have to be there 3.5 hours.

    This feedback is specific to my visit on Mother's day. I made a reservation at 3:30pm, thinking that this would be a quieter time to enjoy a meal with my mom. We showed up to our reservation about 15 minutes early and checked in. The person at the desk asked me to come back in 5 or 10 minutes as our table was being prepared. We returned and we were seated. Our waiter then came by and let us know that the kitchen was running behind and that it would take between an hour to an hour and a half to get food. We decided to leave as a result. This was very disappointing! I would have really appreciated being told this before we were seated.

    Food is fine but service could not be slower. Seated shortly after our reservation time of 1:15pm (within five mins which is fine) and our food (which was selected from a limited 8-item brunch menu) arrived at 2:40pm. They did bring bread but the wait times and efficiency of this place are a real deterrent, which is a shame because the food and location are good. Not the first time I've had this issue at the Boathouse.

    We went yesterday for Mother’s Day brunch, and this was hands down the worst dining experience of my life. We didn’t get seated until 30 minutes past our reservation. It took 1.5 hours to get our food, and almost 3.5 hours from the time we showed up until the time we left. This basically ruined our Mother’s Day plans. Theres no reason it should take 3.5 hours to go for Brunch and they even had a small set menu. There was no apology or explanation from any staff. They at least got my 2 year old daughter’s food out, but it was another 30 minutes until ours came. By that time she was finished eating, and getting antsy and we still hadn’t eaten. It felt very unorganized from the very moment we walked in. I worked in hospitality as a caterer for over 10 years, and the lack of communication to us was very concerning to me. If the kitchen is behind it’s important that the front of house staff steps up its game and also apologize, offer explanation, do something. But our server was barely ever around. There were very long stretches of time, where we had not seen our server, to ask if we wanted anything else to drink. We had to ask 3 other servers about our orders and also just to get drinks. We only received 1 round of water, 1 coffee and a Bellini in a 3.5 hour span. Was completely unacceptable. Ultimately, in the end the food wasn’t even worth the wait, and definitely not the price. It’s too bad, because we love the Boathouse. We have been there many times, and have had very good experiences, even on days when it seemed busier. But yesterday was simply an unacceptable experience. We will not be returning for some time.
