Waterview dining

I have just spent quite a while trying to identify restaurants in Boston that have an actual waterview. Many restaurants bill themselves as "waterfront" and I suppose that this is sort of accurate. However, on closer inspection one finds that they are NOT located overlooking the harbor but away from the harbor but along the streets running by the harbor.

I have identified Anthony's Pier 4 but we ate there a few weeks ago and while the view was superb, the rest of the experience was dreadful. Food sent back, small portions, strange preparations, etc. I have also identified Rowe's Wharf Sea Grille and Meritage, both located in the Boston Harbor Hotel. The Intercontinental claims that Miel overlooks the harbor, but my recollection from a year ago is that this statement is a stretch.

I know that the Daily Catch is on a pier in the harbor and that the No Name is also on a pier. However, I am trying to bring along guests for a really nice dinner and these places are much too casual for the occasion.

So can my co-chowhounders give me the names of any places I may have overlooked?
