When this place first opened a few years ago, taking over from the execrable Caliterra, it was a real shot in the arm for the dire Financial District dining/drinking scene. Creative, fresh takes on New England seafood, inspired upscale cocktails, and a really interesting crowd that included people not necessarily staying at the hotel. I'm quite disappointed in what it has become - service is awful, food is lackluster, and the crowd is just the usual mix of shouting finance bros you'd find at any random faux Irish pub. The space still looks striking though - I'll give the designer major kudos for bringing a taste of our Cape architecture into the city.

I had two meetings today at Nix's and feel compelled to write. I received a pleasurable experience dining and also at the bar. The meal was called Chicken-Cooked-Under-a-Brick and it was worthy of recognition - large portion, intriguingly seasoned and layered with three full baked carrots plus fresh mashed potatoes. My next meeting was at the bar with and we were greeted and served by friendly and knowledgeable Jessica who poured a sample from the beer tap to answer my question. Decided on Honkers Ale from Goose Island Beer company. Thank you to Norb and Alex for introducing me to this place!

Hotel lounge bar in the Hilton just outside Financial Dist/Fan Hall area of Boston. They close early (at midnight) so go on the earlier side if you plan to check it out. They now have live bands instead of a DJ which is different for that area with no cover. Overall not a bad place to start the night on a weekend out with friends.

I'm pretty skeptical when it comes to hotel restaurants, but Nix's Mate was a pleasant surprise. Appetizers and cocktails are bit pricey (most of both are in the $12 - $15 range) but the entrees are surprisingly reasonable (most are $20 - $25) and the food is very good. The ambiance is pleasant as well; nice decor, a touch classy but not overly so. You could walk in with jeans and a shirt or a suit and not feel particularly out of place either way. The service when I was there was average. I was there late in the dinner hour and it was not busy at all but the service was a bit on the slow side and the waitress wasn't particularly pleasant. I would certainly go back - the food is well worth it.

A hidden bar inside the Hilton hotel, great place to grab a drink after work. They have live DJ on weekends, so good lounge place to chill on weekend. The food menu is pretty good too, had their pork belly dish, it was delicious and good price.

I stay at the Hilton every year,and this time I am inclined to review. This a Hotel food outlet that wants to be something else. Food doesn't come close to the menu descriptions and the staff would rather be somewhere else at someone's party. Better choices across the street. Hotel is saddled with this leased operation. Only if you have to...

This review is for Nix's Mate, Boston Hilton's room service provider. It has become my mission to inform anyone that may be staying at the Boston Hilton, not to! Beware, do not order your food from Nix's Mate, the hotel's room service! My boyfriend and I were staying there over the St. Patrick's Day weekend, when he became violently ill with the worst food poisoning case. What is upsetting to me, is how he was treated during this violent experience and the days that followed. The Hilton doesn't own the restaurant and was quick to tell us that they could not be responsible for any bad food delivered to our room. We had not eaten a thing all day. When we ordered room service we were told that it would be 30 minutes. An hour later, we called and room service immediately showed up with what appeared to us as "whoops" we forgot to deliver your food. My boyfriend had the lobster which was cool and mushy and the shrimp was translucent and cool. In the early morning hours, my boyfriend starting vomiting with diarrhea, which last for 15-16 hours straight. When I called the front desk asking for help, I simply got a "sorry." Our weekend was ruined. We had Celtic tickets, that too was ruined. And to make matters worse, my boyfriend has made a claim for his damages, only to be told that the insurance company for Nix's Mate required a stool sample. Are you kidding me? In the midst of feeling like he was dying, he was supposed to stop everything and provide a stool sample to Nix's Mate. It is now my duty to warn anyone that wants to stay at the Boston Hilton or order food from Nix's Mate, don't do it! It is obvious to me, that customer care and satisfaction is not a concern of the Boston Hilton or Nix's Mate.
