Had breakfast here - very relaxing atmosphere and great service. Hard to rate breakfast, but food was very good, portions average to small, and prices average to slightly high, but still a great spot overall.

An extensive drinks list lead me to try the Cuban Mojito, wow was I amazed! I've asked for this drink elsewhere & most places don't even know what it is, and those who have tried to imitate it only fail. All of the food I've tried has been top quality, taste, and presentation. I make a note to go here every time I'm in Boston.

My wife and i had very nice dinner at Eastern Standard. Most importantly, while waiting for our dinner companions we had a great time waiting at the bar. In fact, we would have been happy just eating at the bar watching the bartenders make all types of interesting martini and bourbon drinks. What truly made our dining/drinking experience was the interaction with the bartenders. They were attentive and very entertaining while explaining how they made the various drinks.

If you're in the Kenmore Square area and want a really nice bar scene visit Eastern Standard, you won't be disappointed.

We stayed at the Hotel Commonwealth for four days and ate at this restaurant at least 4 times. Each meal was a taste delight and the service from hostess to server to bartender was outstanding. It was very busy all the time, but the wait was always minimal. I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant!
