Go for Brunch

This place has the best brunch in Boston. The stuffed french toast and omelets are superb. I would recommend sharing an order of the french toast sticks with nutella dipping sauce and then having an omelet. Be prepared to wait a bit on a weekend morning but it is very worth it.

I was looking for an Easter brunch while in Boston. I checked on line and found the North Street Grill. Mostly excellent reviews for the food, but tight space. We had 7 in our party and I called for reservations ahead. I have to say, it is very tight! Only a handful of tables in the entire restaurant. We were... More

Went here for brunch with 8 girlfriends after a night out. Good thing we called ahead to make a reservation because it was jam packed! We still had to wait outside for about 5-10 minutes, but it was totally worth it. I had a hard time choosing something to eat because the menu is so big and everything looks amazing!... More

My husband and I had breakfast here on Valentine's Day, OMG it was out of this world. it was busy, for sure, but we were seated within 5 minutes. I would say this was one of the best breakfasts I have ever eaten. I am excited to return! I had a tall glass of pink grapefruit juice, a blueberry muffin... More

as a server myself I can't believe I am even writing a review like this but the slow, RUDE and negligent service was too much to handle. waited over an hour outside the building with a promise of a 25 minute wait. BREAKFAST took 45 minutes to be served and 15 minutes to cash out due to errors on our... More

Would have received 5 stars if we didn't have to wait outside in the cold for 40 minutes! We had a reservation (they take them for 6 or more), but 1 couple cancelled last minute. We went to see "Art of the Brick" & were ending with a 12:30 brunch. When we arrived, they said we would have to go... More

My wife and I are breakfast people. Well...we're also lunch and dinner people but we really enjoy breakfast out. We stumbled into the North Street Grille a couple of years ago and have since been back more than a dozen times. It never disappoints (except for the wait). The menu consists of many kinds of omelets with a myriad of... More

We had breakfast here Saturday morning. I called ahead to get our name on the list since you can't make reservations for under 6 people. We got called earlier than predicted since we agreed to sit at the bar which actually was nice and cozy. Bloody Mary was okay but I'd ask for it more spicey next time. Food was... More

This place was worth the wait. I ordered the pesto omelette with steak and also the stuffed french toast with nutella and banana. I also got to try a few other french toast dishes they had and I gotta say it's worth coming for this french toast alone. I called in 20 minutes before I got there and I had... More
