10 years in, Eastern Standard is still a gem, constantly improving. No better place for a quick bite/drinks before a Red Sox game.

We had breakfast two days here, all meals were great. The Continental breakfast was amazing. Our second day, the waitress from our first day came over to say hi, see how everything was, and how we were enjoying our stay in the middle of her busy shift!

Beautiful restaurant. Pleasantly surprised to find the perfect cocktail perusing the bar's creative throwback cocktail menu. We over ordered apps, more cocktail refills, dinner and dessert. OK, I'm not a sharer when it comes to eating out but, I wanted to try everyone's dishes that I had to break down and share mine. Glad I did. Three words. Ah! Maze!... More

We opted for the A/C. The dining room is beautiful with dark wood, marble, leather booth seating. Service was excellent, the best we encountered in... More

This place turned out to be a great way to cap off our 4th of July after watching the Red Sox win! We were greeted and seated immediately outside. Best seats in the house! Our server was delightful and very attentive. The four of us asked for suggestions and she didn't try to sell us the most expensive dishes but... More
