If I owned a restaurant I would want it to be just like Buckley’s. The wait staff is well trained, the décor comfortable and warm, and the food good. Do you want your steak rubbed, marinated or naked? It is your choice. Sides are reasonably priced as are a wide variety of sauces…love that! I judge a steakhouse by the creamed spinach not the steak. Buckley’s gets an A+. My prime rib was flavorful and perfectly cooked. Everyone in our party was very happy with their meals. My only gripe, and I would have knocked Buckley’s down a star for this had everything else not been perfect, is that when we got there for our reservation my friend and I were dropped off at the door while our husbands parked the car. When asked if everyone in our party was there we said that our husbands were parking the car in their lot and we were told that we would have to wait to be seated until they came in. If this restaurant was in downtown Boston where parking can take quite a while, I would have been fine with this, but our husbands could not be more than five minutes away from walking in the door. Being ushered to the table would have made me feel more valued as a customer and we all know how first impressions can set the tone for a visit.
