I was so impressed with the menu here that I ate here twice in one week. Both food and location are excellent. Sunday brunch drinks were a little expensive, but I am sure they were everywhere.

Enjoyed very much the lively atmosphere at this busy place on Boston's Newbury St. Large outside seating area if you like people-watching but we opted for a booth inside. Good service and I particularly liked the selection of local craft bottled beers from local breweries on the bar menu. Huge portions throughout - a "starter" of bruschetta was enough for... More

Very busy place, nice seating outside, although we sat at the bar since it was a 30 min wait outside. Drinks were good, clam chowder was tasty, and we ordered the lobster roll and ham sandwich. For our app, tuna tar tar was perfect, would definitely return!

The adult beverages made the wait pleasant. Once we were seated, we had a great time, great service, and a great meal. We shared several appetizers - the bad thing was they were so good we were too full to get an entree!

We've been to Stephanie's a few times before and when a friend was coming to Boston from South Carolina, we picked her up at the airport and headed to Stephanie's. We were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation and had a table in the back looking at part of the kitchen (not an attractive spot at all). Our waitress... More

We come here often. We love the brunch. Had the best blueberry pancakes! Great service and nice ambience on a warm summer day.

A busy, buzzing place with very good--but not great--food, especially for breakfast. Are they complacent? Always there is a line for a table for brunch on Sunday, and the outdoor tables and the attentive service create an inviting space. The waitstaff is polished and professional, but, at times, that may create an odd dynamic with a clientele which is predominantly... More

When in Boston after a long walk either admiring the many wonderful place Boston has to offer. Or after a nice shopping day on Newbury Street, Stephanie's is the place you want to choose for Lunch or Dinner. If you want to use their out door patio, make sure to get there a little earlier as they are always busy.... More

We've eaten at Stephanie's several times over the years and were looking forward to our Saturday evening dinner here. However, we had a less than positive experience. The staff were not particularly welcoming and I felt they just wanted to turn our table as fast as possible. Some of the food was ok but mine was poor. I had the... More

I normally do not write reviews about poor service because I do not believe one bad waiter can be reflective of an entire restaurant, but there was nothing good about Stephanie's except maybe the location! We wandered over to this place to take a mid-afternoon break from shopping/touring around. We were seated immediately in the middle of the patio. Our... More
