yikes.........

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... read 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

We were very excited to have brunch here as it was recommended with good reviews. The pros: nice hostess & waitress, love the North End area, French toast sticks were tasty The cons: food was mediocre, at best, ie, Luke warm coffee & tea, smoked salmon sandwich comes with a pre-packed preservative container of cream cheese spread, bagel clearly frozen,...

We went here on our first morning in Boston , having arrived to late the night before to go out for dinner. It was excellent and very busy, we got there as it opened. The portions were huge!

The North End is cramped with restaurants and it was hard to choose where to eat. We found this place off the path and decided to try it. Great food, drinks and the service was outstanding. We ended up eating there several times.
