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.

My family and I we're shocked that the place wasn't packed with a line. Paramount cafe is famous but the food isn't that special....spend your money here!

Our concierge recommended this restaurant for an early dinner. We sat in the window and enjoyed people watching, the food was good. The Louisiana style shrimp small dish was very good, as was the chicken entree.

We have already enjoyed a lovely breakfast at this eatery and returned to it for dinner last night. I ordered tuna and the beloved ordered scallops. Both very good. Neither of us could fault the meal or the service. The portion sizes were perfect. We then followed with the cheese platter and it was very good also. The service was... More

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at our hotel and it was a very good recommendation. It was close to 9 on a Saturday night after a long day of touring in Boston and we were all a bit tired and just wanted to have something to eat. We sat down at an outdoor table and greeted by Chris... More

A nice, spacious, trendy yet relaxed, friendly interior. Very welcoming serving staff. A terrific selection of wines and you can pay to have 'sip' quantities of these to enjoy your... More

Sat outside on a pleasant summer early evening. Felt relaxed and this place complemented this well. Good initial welcome was followed by drinks being brought promptly. We followed with a white bean soup and a tomato soup, both of which were rustic and very tasty, though the tomato soup might have been served hotter. Then came the big service flaw... More
