Perhaps I am just too old for this restaurant. On the plus side, the food was very good. There is a nice menu, varied and somewhat eclectic. Everything was well prepared and all of us enjoyed what we had. The wine list, while not big, is adequate. The restaurant was a bit frenetic, however, and we were often forgotten by... More

I would never 'write off' a restaurant based on only one visit and one menu item. Having said that, my husband and I had brunch here on a recent visit to Boston simply on the basis of walking by and thinking 'this looks good.' I was in the mood for something light and had the heirloom tomato and burrata salad.... More

The food was okay we were there for lunch and it was really good. The restaurant offered gin from my favorite local distillery Short Path which was a pleasant surprise. Make sure you try the calamari the sauce which goes along with it, is like a appetizer all in itself very nice

Maybe we were unlucky, but on the night we visited, service was chaotic. Apparently there was confusion among the wait staff about who was on which section - which meant long delays even to get a drink. The table to our left walked out, and the diners to our right were also irritated. Food was good and portions substantial. Hopefully... More

Stephi's is popular in the South End. Food is simply mediocre so the emphasis must be on the bar crowd because it is always crowded and quite noisy.. A lobster mac & cheese, at $27 was just awful; a pasty cream sauce with over cooked pasta and very little lobster. It appears to be understaffed; our waitress was hassled and... More

We wandered into Steph's on a busy Friday and they provided attentive, thoughtful service. The Ahi Tuna salad was crispy and refreshing, and the half chicken dinner flavorful and filling.

Came here for an early dinner (group of 4). We ordered miso glazed salmon salad, our famous meatloaf, pan roasted haddock, pan seared scallops. Every dish was made to perfection. Fries were delicious, yucca chips - not so much.

Was in Boston for a week for a special occasion. Came about this place and was in the mood for a Bloody Mary. The bartender handed me a sheet and I was able to check off exactly how I wanted my bloody mary. Needless to say I returned a few times especially for the very creative chef's daily specials. Will...

Neighborhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
