Was with a group on business for the night in Boston. Wanted to try since it was down the street from our hotel. We did not have a reservation but was greeted and was shown to a table in the dining room. We had 2 servers this night, one was in training and they both did a great job. We... More

This place is a gem! The calamari appetizer was perfectly cooked and quickly devoured. Arugula salad and beet salad were very fresh and nicely balanced. For entrees we chose the bouillabaisse, tuna wellington, and scallops with risotto. All were perfectly cooked and delicious. For dessert, we shared a dulce de leche cheesecake and a banana bread pudding with caramel sauce.... More

Ate here on a recent trip to Boston because it was near our hotel. What a find! Started the meal with glasses of a lovely Chianti. The tuna bruschetta appetizer was unique, delicious, and visually appealing. For the main plate I had the scallops which were very fresh and cooked and seasoned to perfection. It was served with an unusual... More

While on business, a large group of us walked from our hotel (Courtyard Marriott) to this cute little restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious. My risotto was amazing, and we all shared desserts, which were all equally amazing - especially the pumpkin creme brulee! The service was very friendly and seemed to be the right pace, despite having a very... More

We were in Boston and had been stuck in traffic for a long time. We checked into the Holiday Inn and asked at the desk about a local restaurant. They directed us to 224. The service was very good. I thought the food was tasty but a little expensive for what we got. I guess that's normal for the area... More

Our group of 6 were actually staying in the rental right next door and had only read a few reviews about 224 Boston but we were so pleasantly surprised! The lobster mac was to die for. The service was amazing. And to be able to accommodate 6 plus 3 others that showed up on their outdoor patio (which was beautiful,... More

I almost thought I'd entered Cheers for a minute but this place is a nice neighborhood corner restaurant. It also has a garden area for drinks or dinner. The food is decent too but definitely not spectacular. Wine list adequate. Unfortunately management has chosen not to train their wait staff in the basic skills of serving patrons. Otherwise a good... More
