enter a secluded island and enjoy the charms of the past: no buzz, no rush, elegant atmosphere, great food - we had foie gras, salad, swordfish and steak variations - and a nice wine selection. Staff is knowledgable and courteous. A great dining experience in the heart of the city.

Our family of three wandered in here from the Freedom Trail. I was worried we be "too touristy" with our casual clothes but we were welcomed and seated. We enjoyed the rolls (!!!), an incredible Chicken Waldorf that was large enough for two, a crab cake salad and a turkey club. Service was spot-on. There were several people there on... More

We had brunch and Boston cream pie here on a Sunday morning. The atmosphere is pretty impressive, fantastic old paintings of boston landscapes, rich colonial architectural features like pillars and moldings to admire as you eat. The service was among the best we've ever had. The food was fantastic and the prices were reasonable for Boston brunch. This will be... More

We stopped here because Emeril had this on the food network recently. He said this was one of the first places he worked and highly recommended a stop for BCP if in Boston. When we were on the trolley, they pointed out the OMNI hotel, so we jumped off and rushed to find the restaurant closed. One of the employees... More

I made my reservation through Open table for Sunday Brunch. I really enjoyed the experience as i was traveling and it was my first Boston experience. We ended up trying Belgian waffle, fruit plate, lobster cake, an omlette and of course finished with the delicious Boston cream by which is worth a try no matter how full you are. The... More

The service from the wait staff is amazing. they even gave us tips on where the good seats are at the red socks game! Got the pre-theater menu. Clam chowder is amazing. The entree wasn't that impressive. Dessert (boston cream pie) was AMAZING. It is a very good deal.

Great breakfast, but I would recommend passing on the overpriced Boston Creme Pie.....I know that it originated here, however, I'm not comparing the taste, but the freshness...ours had a taste of day old refrigeration....and it costs $9 each!

Located in the Parker House Omni, the dining room is all dark wood, pictures and historic design. We had the Buffet breakfast with made to order omlets and it was delicious. Attentive staff and hostess contributed to a wonderfull morning meal

We stepped into the Parker House late in the afternoon, wondering if we might buy some rolls in the hotel gift shop. But an employee we met in the lobby suggested we head up the stairs to the bar, where we could not only sample the famous hot rolls, but also their world-famous Boston Cream Pie. Were we glad we...
