First off I must say that Aris was the most helpful, friendly, and efficient waiter. So willing to help the elderly and impaired with servings and plates. Just a breath of fresh air! My thanksgiving was special just watching this gentleman being so thoughtful. Dinner was amazing and the stuffing was to die for. Turkey was moist and tasty. The... More

In the Newton Marriott, easy to reach just off highway. Pleasant atmosphere overlooking kayakers on the river. Have had business lunches here for many years and have never been disappointed. Waiters are attentive and knowledgable. Try the lobster roll! Parking is fantastic for small or large groups.

The Lounge had terrible service. Asked for whole grain bread got Rye. Was not offered the specials, waited 10 minutes for bill, and only got it when I actually stood up. Waitresses only paid attention to guests who were building up a tab, because of tip money.

We checked in late at the hotel, but luckily the restaurant was open until 9:30 p.m. Service was very good, food was excellent. A bit expensive but it was worth it. My husband had the Steak and he raved about it. Scallops were also delicious.

Stayed at the Marriott and had dinner here one night for convenience. Good service, standard selections - nothing stands out yet still a good meal for the cost. Great view of the water and boat house. Still a number of options off the property if you're looking for more basic or upscale, this was perfect for quick, good quality and... More

We live down the street and thought it was worth checking out what could be a convenient option for our frequent dining out. Let me begin by stating that we ate at the bar because we wanted to watch the Red Sox/Yankees game, so this review is only for the bar and not the full restaurant. The layout felt like... More

Amazing food in a fabuloulous location. So beautiful to eat and look out to the water. The service is high quality, with a a huge emphasis on customer service with a smile! I would recommend to anyone from a family with small children to executives dining for business & drinks. We can't wait to go back on Mothers Day!

We had breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the Riverbend during our week long stay, and enjoyed them all. The food was really excellent, the service just a bit slow, but good. Prices are "hotel" prices, so a bit on the higher side, but not unreasonable.

We just had brunch at the Marriott in Newton, Ma and it was awful, if you want a good brunch look elsewhere, it was truly a disaster. Service left a lot to be desired. It is not the Marriott we use to go to. Puppylove

This restaurant is located within the Marriott Newton hotel. The only meals I had were breakfast. A breakfast buffet was offered, but I chose to order from the menu. A Classic breakfast consisting of 2 eggs, meat, hash browns, bread, coffee and juice is $16. It was a generous portion and they allowed me to substitute fruit for the potatoes.... More
