Had a lovely meal at this restaurant quite different than your normal American diners. Good choice on the menu helpful staff, dessert a little pricey. Would highly recommend.

Got into town late and had limited choices for dinner so landed here and it was good enough. The service here was nice, good cocktails and wine, and service was nice. Food tries too hard to be gourmet -- stick with the basics and you'll be fine.

First night in Boston, walking around the neighborhood near our rental apartment; we were really just looking for a nice place to have a cocktail or two. Looking in the window of Scollay Square it looked like it had an inviting bar area. Very good cocktails (martini and cosmo), and on looking at the small plates menu a few things... More

A great casual dinner. We started with the goat cheese appetizer, which was absolutely fantastic! I had the haddock which was cooked perfectly. My husband had the fish and chips. The beef was tasty and tender, I was surprised how good it was, the fries delicious.

We made a reservation here prior to seeing the Lion King, the Boston Opera House is within walking distance. We were able to enjoy the patio seating during the nice weather. The food was decent but rather average. We ordered the herbed chicken and pork for our entrees. Would likely try other places in the area before returning here.

Nothing was bad. Polite server, decent presentation and a good menu selection, but for the price we were a little underwhelmed. Sauces and flavors lacked definition. Things we're just a little bland: the tuna was cooked perfectly but flavor of the Asian slaw and sauce was a little too subtle and the pan roasted haddock also didn't have much flavor... More

The scallops were great, swap the coleslaw for plain greens. Patio style, great for a brunch. Location - right near Boston Common.

Dropped son off at Stonehill College for soccer camp. We decided to tour downtown Boston. We'll saw many cool historical things. We worked up an appetite walking through this beautiful city. We saw this quaint looking cafe/pub/tavern. So we stepped in. The atmosphere was very nice. We ordered seared scallops and fish & chips. Holy smokes they were the best... More

My husband and I got back to our hotel quite late & the concierge recommended this restaurant. We had a pleasant experience. We both ordered flatbreads which were very flavorful. We also ordered the kale salad...Yummy!

Had the salmon dinner with lobster mashed potatoes, along with a great bottle of red wine. The food and service were outstanding. Highly recommend.
