After a long days walk around Boston, we stopped in for a couple of drinks. Great service and atmosphere! On one occasion we ordered spicy chicken wings at the bar and they were abundant and delicious.

This place is so warm and inviting, and has great outdoor seating in the summer. They have a signature pineapple vodka which is delicious. Great food, great atmosphere!

Very popular sidewalk side place to go in the nice weather to eat outside. The food definitely does not live up to the hype. There are definitely better restaurants in the Newbury street area. If you go over to Boylston or on the sidestreets you can do much better.

Had brunch here on the first weekend of the new year and can't think of a better place to kick off the day. The Bloody Mary checklist is spectacular and the drink ended up being one of the best bloodys I've ever had. Eggs Benedict were perfection!

We arrived just when the doors opened. While the hostess was being pulled in several directions (phone/customers/small children) we were seated promptly. Our server was friendly. She told us this was the last week open and then they were closing for a mulitmillion dollar renovation that will include a heated patio. Our food was really good. The coffee was fresh,... More

We had heard a lot of good reviews of Stephanie's. We were surprised it was not a better experience. We were sat in a back room with a large noisy (swearing, loud) party. We must not have had any one waitstaff assigned to us, because each of the times we requested a wait person, a different one came. We had... More

This is a terrific Sunday brunch choice. Service was very attentive (thanks Lisa D), no wait on a busy Sunday for our reserved table for 6 people. Handled food allergies extremely well. A bagel came out burned but was whisked away by the server and pancakes were raw in the very center (bananas and blueberries require longer cooking time). We... More

Recommended by the hotel where I stayed in Boston as a nice place to lunch with a friend. Since it would be my last meal before departing, my friend and I thought that I should have a nice last lunch before going to the airport and would be saved from "airplane" food. As it was a Wednesday after one p.m.,... More

The atmosphere was nice, but the acoustics need some help. It was so noisy it was hard to hear the person across the table. The food was good, but nothing special.

The food...it was okay, nothing to write home about...the atmosphere...watch out!!!! I entered the restaurant with my wallet in my purse (sure of this because we parked just outside and used my credit card in the parking meter). My husband and I sat at the bar and I hung my purse on the chair. Left 45 minutes later without my... More
