Enjoyed a relaxed happy hour dinner on the patio. It was shaded and across from the park. Felt cool and comfortable after a long day touring the city. Atmosphere inside was elegant yet comfortable, like visiting friends. As we were traveling with our four legged friends, we really appreciated that they allowed our pups on the patio and even brought... More

Recently, we enjoyed a reception for my daughters graduate school graduation at the Living Room. The staff was amazing, so accommodating and flexible! The food was original and delicious. I would recommend the Living Room for anyone who would like top notch service and food with a friendly personal touch.

Nothing quite like it in the area. As the name says, part of it is set up like a living room with sofas, tables and chairs. The menu changes but some of it is italian and there is always seafood, but there is also Mexican, Asian, Middle Eastern and a lot of combinations you wouldn't have thought of. They even... More

My daughter picked this restaurant to celebrate her 23rd birthday. We had never been here before. Very good food. We loved the pretzels instead of roles, although they filled us up a little too much for everything we ordered. The brussel sprout chorizo flatbread was delicious, and also filling. My daughter and my wife were torn between the burger and... More

We appreciate your feedback and will pass your comments onto the team! I hope that you mentioned the chicken to your server. She would have had the manager take it off the bill. it is one of our favorite dishes here, so perhaps it was a bit overcooked to the point of being chewy. Hope to have you back soon... More

The owners named it well. The bar/lounge area has three massive sectionals as well other “living room” furniture, plus plenty of tables and stools… a refreshing change from other restaurants. The dining area was well-appointed: A very appealing and comfortable place to enjoy a nice meal. We went here several times since it was so close to the Marriott Long... More

This is the sixth year we have hosted a Holiday Party at the Living Room. I honestly can't say enough great things. From the ease of planning the party, to the exceptional pricing, to the super attentive staff, delicious food....all fantastic! Our organization would hold our parties at a different venue in Boston each year for the past 50+ years.... More

We were traveling from MT and my friend called the restaurant ahead to enquire about the gluten free menu. When we arrived the gentleman greeted us with a smile seated us at a nice table. I appreciated how he remembered their conversation and was so accommodating. Nice staff, good, food, fun atmosphere, I would eat here again.

We have had our daughter's birthday in the function area two years in a row now. The passed heavy hors d'oeuvres and Mac and cheese for the kids is very high quality and consistently so.

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
