To avoid the crazy St. Patty's day celebration in Boston, we came out here for a quick lunch/brunch.

While the restaurant was busy, the bar was completely empty - which meant great service and attention from the staff.

Their brunch menu is pretty decent, but I'd have liked to see more salad options. We had a very good lunch and the bartender was great - very friendly and helpful.

They have a great bar menu for dinner here as well - you must get the truffle popcorn!

Definitely will go back again in the future.

The food is pretty bad. Even the bar food like turkey burgers and traditional ones are bad. It has become a neighborhood place you can go to get a drink - nothing more.

I really like the Met for a nightcap. It's open late, it has a great drinks menu and the vibe is good. Very nice to sit at a high top or at the bar. I've eaten at the restaurant only once and found it pretentious and expensive (words I rarely use). But I love the bar. Highly recommend on one's way home ... when you're just not ready to call it a night.

We went here with 13 people. The atmosphere was good and the decor was
clubby with a nice fireplace. The food was very disappointing for such an expensive place.The server kept forgetting about us.It took 45 minutes to get our food and they were mixing up the orders.My husband 's pasta was cold and his veal parm was overcooked.We complained to the manager but they ignored it. I hadn't been there in a while so maybe it is under new management.If they are going to charge those prices they need to provide better food and service.

Had a reservation at 7:30, but waited for half an hour to get seated. The restaurant did not appear to be full, at most one other party was waiting for a table.

We were served appetizers which consisted only of cold plates and salads one hour and 15 minutes after arriving. I wouldn't say mediocre, but nothing special.

By now, main courses were served almost two hours after arriving (one hour and 55 minutes to be exact). Needed a chisel and hammer to handle a stake, and side potatoes dry as a bone.

Need I say more?
