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

We really enjoyed our meal at Stephanie's! The concierge at our hotel recommended that mac n cheese and it lived up to expectations! Delicious! We visited on a Tuesday evening and whilst they were very busy we expected quicker service but overall a nice evening.

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

Great cocktail menu and nice selection of wine by the glass too. We had a cod dish and also hanger steak. Both were... 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.
