Delicious steaks and oysters. We have only sat at the bar, but have never had a bad meal. Usually packed before a Red Sox game, but worth trying to get in.

Read about Eastern Standard on Trip Advisor and tried it for a business meeting. We had a nice table and enjoyed the food. Service was a bit slow, but we lived through it. I can't say the food was memorable but certainly good enough!

We used this restaurant, attached to the Hotel Commonwealth, for breakfast throughout our stay at the hotel. Service was always good and our food hot and freshly cooked. Coffee was plentiful. What's not to like?

Lovely place to get a meal.... Menu is very simple really. Most people seem to go for steak! Nice cocktail list. Great room.

Great place for any meal. Laid back, elegant, classic old Boston spirit. I had the house smoked salmon on a bagel for brunch and - that will always be my favorite.

We went to the Eastern Standard after a baseball game at Fenway. The atmosphere at night was very cozy. The staff was excellent and recommended great drinks. The steak and hamburger were amazing!! Will visit here again.

The cocktails here are great and the bartenders really know what the are doing. The food is always good as well. I would recommend lunch or dinner. It is a great place for meeting up for drinks with friends, though.
