My son had the flank steak again which was wonderful. I ordered the Prime Rib - it was more like a mini roast! Every bite was fabulous! The only disappointing thing about dinner was the wonderful bread - the bottom was burnt.

Eastern Standard exceeded my expectations. I live in New York City, so consider myself to have a fairly high standard for a restaurant experience. Eastern Standard was perfect. They have an excellent wine (and beer) list. The service was flawless. The waiter was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations. The steak tartar was delicious and perfectly paired with a spicy Syrah from Ardèche. We sat outside under the heat lamps on cool May night. It was warm and cozy with a great view of Commonwealth Avenue. The interior is beautifully decorated and very lively. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This place is great - there is always a really good atmosphere, the staff are lovely and really helpful without being overbearing, and most importantly the food is delicious.

I came here with some friends for dinner on a Tuesday evening and it was packed. But you never feel it's too much because tables are well spaced out. Our waiter was really helpful and recommended an excellent wine for us. I had a salad of asparagus and goat's cheese to start which was lovely. Followed this with the rib-eye - a honking piece of meat!

We had a great time.
