On a busy late Saturday afternoon, the restaurant was packed but we were seated after only a ten minute wait. The service was friendly but slow. The larger problem was the food. The taste and texture of the chicken quesadilla was like something from a frozen package that had been heated in the microwave. The chicken had the consistency of... More

I'm an avid reader of trip advisor reviews and almost avoided Stephanie's because of its rather low rating. But, I couldn't resist the menu - stepped up comfort food. Upon entering, I realized this was a dramatically underrepresented place. It's lovely inside - comfortable and well decorated. I had a delicious cocktail - the harvest - followed by pumpkin ravioli... More

Saturday night, can't find a place for 8 to dine, Copley Hotel area concierge " has an in" at Stephanie's , "you're in Mr. Chips". Front door staff lovely! Après entre, le deluge. Fair appetizers are attacked before finishing by staff bringing main course! No room on table, no one took notice but the diners! Meat loaf loafed, pasta passé... More

Goat cheese appetizer both nights. We get it everytime its her favorite. And the chocolate dessert cake is almost enough for four it was soo dense and fudgy. I had the Stephanie cheeseburger it was good. She had the pressed chicken and will be getting it again. Stephanies is consistently delivering great food and memorable times. Thank you.

Stephanie's is one of my go to places when people are visiting or when I just want a good meal. I went for brunch with friends and a friends' parents who were visiting. I wasn't feeling well so only had one or two bites of my breakfast quesadilla, but took it home with me and had it the next day... More

We are locals and frequently go to the Back Bay for dinner, theatre, etc. Stephanie's is a very good choice. In summer, it is quite enjoyable to eat outside. This past weekend we ate inside. Service was excellent--very quick, and an attentive waitress. The food was, as always, quite good. Portions for salad and appetizers can be on the larger... More

The French toast was shared by our entire party. It is an enormous dish and very shareable. Soooo good. Everyone then ordered their own plates including omelets, salmon platter, Belgian waffle, grilled cheese and salads. No complaints. Everything was on point. The coffee is very good and the bloody Mary's are designed by YOU! The staff hustle and anticipate your... More
