I'm not easily impressed by restaurants around Boston--either the food
is sometimes off, or the service is awful and slow (usually the waiter
/waitress is a college student part-timing, so they're not exactly food connoseiurs). Eastern Standard is a totally different story. The waitstaff know their food and wines backward and forward, and I've never been disappointed by the food here or the service. It's a must-try!!

It's literally right in the center of Kenmore:

No reason not to give it a go while in town:)

Eastern Standard is a must see! Not only are the drinks and food fabulous, but the place oozes atmosphere. There is year round outdoor seating complete with outdoor heaters and comfy chairs. The interior is low-lit an conducive to lingering at the bar to enjoy another cocktail with friends. Drinks are pricey, but going to Eastern Standard is a treat, so you won't mind treating yourself to a tasty, upscale beverage. Lastly, my favorite thing to order is the raw platter. The portions are generous and when in Boston, one must always
sample the local seafood!

Very disappointing. Don't believe the hype.

My FAVE restaurant. If I could afford to eat (and drink - oh, the cocktails are amazing!) here every night, I would. Classy with a great ambiance, a drink list that tops all others in Boston, and classic French cuisine.

Swank! This place is a very groovy place to take a date. Very high class but not too rough on the wallet.
