We went to dinner at Stephanie's. First time. At best average food, wine, drinks and dessert. Nothing special especially for the price. Expected more. Nice ambiance and location . Overall dissappointed in the experience and can't recommend.

We had a fabulous dinner at Stephanie's during our recent trip to Boston. The atmosphere was lively and friendly, the service was great, and the cold local fruit beer really hit the spot on a very warm day. The warm goat cheese appetizer is one of the best appetizers I've ever had, and the lobster roll was superb. It was... More

Stephanie's used to be my favorite Boston meal! I ate there for my daughter's birthday on July 10th this summer and I thought the service piss poor and the food inedible. If you had asked me two years ago, I would have thought that impossible. Perhaps the competition in the area has slighted Stephanie's? I hope they have a come... More

We had a good meal here - food was really good and the bread particularly delicious. Very hand for all the shops too!

We were able to grab a table outside and enjoyed the hustle/bustle of Newbury. I ordered an omelet, which was so good and totally hit the spot. Our server was so nice and took very good care of us. However, a friend of mine ordered a lobster roll and it was amazing. Best I've ever tasted. Well worth ordering the... More

Stephanie's is a great place for dinner - especially if you can get an outside seat on the picturesque Newbury St. Great ambience, nice cocktails and the food was lovely. I highly recommend their special, the meatloaf. Would definitely go back again and recommend to others visiting Boston.

Excellent food, cold beer in the middle of busy Newbury. Have a sip with a snack (mandatory) on their terrace and watch the busy shoppers. Certainly one of the top spots in Boston.

Despite some recent reviews that complained about the staff's courtesy and friendliness, we decided to finally try out Stephanie's. We reserved a table for 3 on a busy Friday evening and asked for a quiet table. The host was very friendly, and he really did have a (relatively) quiet table for the three of us. We started out with cocktails... More

Very nice menu and vibrant atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and nice to accommodate us when we walked by - decided to stop as it looked like a fun place. The waitress was great, food good and we had a good time.

I don't know why anyone would eat here. The burger was overcooked, bacon burnt and the bun was toasted dry. If the burger is bad don't expect anything else to be good - it wasn't. The shrimp was overcooked. $50.00 for two people to sit on the patio. They wouldn't even remove the inedible burger from the bill. The service... More
