Great Service, Great Food, Great Drinks

I've been to Eastern Standard four or five times at this point and I've never had a bad meal. The food is exquisite, especially for the price, and the drinks menu is diverse. In addition, the service here is always fantastic and very quick.

This place is a stones throw from Fenway Park. The building and interior is beautiful. The food was delicious and staff were very accommodating. We arrived at 3pm which was ideal as not too busy, where as after the game it was packed. Would definitely return.

We went here as it was close to our hotel and the staff had recommended it. I am not sure if we just ordered the wrong thing. The building itself was beautiful inside and the hotel seemed lovely! We chose to sit outside and the area was lovely! We both opted for the breakfast muffin with bacon, cheese, egg and... More

Love Eastern Standard for breakfast, lunch, dinner and/or drink. The food is excellent, beautifully prepared, great menu. Have been going almost since it opened and consistently have had a wonderful experience.

Loved the atmosphere. Food was quite good. The only really odd thing is that the appetizers arrived simultaneously to the main course. No apology or even acknowledgement of this by the waitress. Otherwise is was fine and I would dine there again.

Had a wonderful dining experience here. The waitress we had was top flight, attentive, sweet, and sincere. The bone marrow, while sounding gross was delicious. The calamari light and airy. The bread pudding, which I don't even like but was thrown in by our waitress, was like French toast and the ice cream, that is homemade, was sublime. My sons... More

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The drink menu is enormous - three times larger than the food menu. Really appreciated an extensive wine by the glass list (grenache was great). The daily specials are really good too - had the saffron fettucine with shellfish and enjoyed it. Desserts also were fantastic - I highly recommend the butterscotch bread pudding.

While our daughter was at Orientation my wife and I decided to grab a quick bite at Eastern Standard. The dining room was rich, comfortable and very "supper club". Service was quick and efficient and the food was great. The salad I ordered was huge and I only finished about half. The fries we ordered to share were unbelievably good... More

They sat us immediately, waitress was not one to smile much, seemed disinterested in her job. The food was very good. My daughter claimed the "best grilled cheese sandwich ever" she is 15. My salmon was amazing. Son enjoyed fish and chips, and husband had steak with no complaints.
