Went here with my daughter after some shopping. We had so much fun, just coming in out of the cold. They have anything you could ever want on the menu! Friendly service, delicious food, great menu in a great part of town!

My husband and I had an interesting night at Stephanie's on Newbury. We started at the bar while we waited for a table, and the drinks were great. For dinner, I had the pot pie, which was also quite good. The location and overall atmosphere of the restaurant are wonderful. The only negative that I remember is that the guests... More

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
