The Marliave restaurant was opened in 1885 by Henry Marliave, a French immigrant from Paris, who arrived in Boston with simply a collection of recipes and a dream of bringing a taste of France to America. His dream was realized with the opening of the Marliave, which has become a Boston landmark, surviving the test of time and bringing a piece of history into the present.

    You should have your reception or really any party here.

    I had a wedding of about 80 people. I chose Marliave because they're a good value, I've eaten dinner at the restaurant before, and the upstairs had the aesthetic that I wanted (black floors and white walls, marble bar, classy and simple, cool lighting fixtures). Oh what a good choice I made. The managers I worked with leading up to the wedding were super helpful, responsive, and always made me feel confident leading up to the big day. The place looked beautiful on the day of the wedding- they received the flower delivery, printed menus, organized the DJ's set up, and put out votive candles. During the cocktail hour everyone was wandering around with delicious mojitos, old fashioneds, aperol spritzes, and more. The dinner came out quick and easy, and everyone LOVED their food. My salmon was perfectly cooked, the beef tenderloin was "melt in your mouth" according to several guests, and everyone was stealing the mushroom risotto from my cousin's plate. Despite having to wrangle a large, rowdy crowd of Bostonians all night, the Marliave staff was cheery and helpful up until the very end. I honestly wish I could have more parties here. I may. A+, Marliave... A+.

    Really great experience to have our wedding reception here. They are a great value - there is no venue fee - you just have to pay a minimum for food and drink. What a breath of fresh air in the wedding industry. We had an easy time coordinating with the employees there - and they were extremely accommodating whenever we would "stop by" to look at the space and plan, etc. For brides looking for a restaurant venue - this is a great choice!

    We had a small wedding reception for 26 in the upstairs bar. Fantastic food, drinks, and atmosphere, and the staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. I received several compliments from our guests on the choice of reception location - my brother even told me it was the best steak he had ever eaten! Absolutely a wonderful place for a small reception, and a great value!
