Great

Great food and drinks. We love pairings for breakfast. My wife and I make a trip here every time we travel to Boston. It can be a bit pricey. We spent $80.00 on a breakfast for two.

$70 for 2 for breakfast - standard food, nothing special, way over priced. Not sure I'd go back. We only ate there b/c we had a hotel food & beverage credit.

The food was good. The seafood risotto that I had was amazing. The service was professional. Prices were reasonable. I would definitely go back.

We had read some relatively negative reviews of Pairings......untrue! I would definitely go back. The service by our waiter Alberto was superb, attentive, but not intrusive. The atmosphere is lovely and the food even better. We went with a Travel Zoo coupon.....what a deal! My husband's caeser salad was really good and very large....a meal in itself. My mussels were...

We went to Pairings as a belated Valentines Day dinner date. Being the last minute planners that we are, we failed to make reservations in advance for a restaurant in Boston. We were skeptical that Pairings was going to be any good, as it was one of the only restaurants nearby the had any open reservations. When we arrived, we... More

This is attached to the Park Plaza Hotel, so you're going to get hotel prices. But, if your breakfast was comp'd like ours was, you wouldn't care about prices!

The service at the bar was very good, and the bartender was friendly, polite, but not overly invasive seeing my desire for some alone time. Wine was excellent, can't say too much about food as I only had a salad and it was fine. With tip, paid $38 for one glass of wine and a simple salad. Seemed excessive to... More
