Diner Reviews
  • "Our party started w the marrow, salad and table olives. We then had the burger, lasagnatte and bone-in pork chop. All were fine, and solid. The ice cream trio and beignets were OK too. Again, nothing objectionable, just not that impressive. Service was a bit rough around the edges. A nice place for a meal, if you are in the neighborhood."

  • "We ate at 6:00pm so it was still early enough to get really good service. Once it got more crowded, we had to wait a little for dessert and the bill. The starters were great - pei mussels were fantastic and no complaints against the bone marrow. I was a little disappointed with the entrees - porkchop with wild farro seemed brined in a really salty brine and the farro seemed undercooked and chewy/hard. The rabbit ragut seemed to have underseasoned polenta (almost like grits). The honey lavender panna cotta was a great treat to end with - I wish I ordered 2! I'd come back here for the starters and dessert."

  • "The food is great but I recommend sticking to the charcuterie and small dishes."

  • "Same place, atmosphere,service, but somehow not as good as last time. Great starters, good to really good burger. Problem? The ragu was watery, like soup and not rich as it was before. Two of our four diners ordered that dish. Too bad. I would go back for a third time, but my wife says no. That means we will not go back."

  • "I was excited to try this place but probably won't be back. I ordered the lasagnette which had duck ragu. Unfortunately, there was very little sauce and what I was delivered was just a pile of noodles with a scant drop, seriously 3 tablespoons worth, of sauce and meat. I tried my boyfriend's dish, the pre fixe/house special for the evening, some kind of olive pasta with tomato sauce that regrettably was not much better. The noodles were clumped together and it was like eating ravioli....however this was a flat pasta... Both of us feel like we got the bottom of the barrel servings. Additionally the house red that came with pre fixe was almost undrinkable. On a positive note, our waitress was great, regrettably our food was not."

  • "Went there with 4 people. We started with two orders of the beet and mozzarella arancini. I had the lasagnette, one person got the rabbit and two people got the mussels/fries. Wine list was a little pricey so we stuck to wine by the glass and beer. The place is small, but we didn't have to wait for a table. Service was great as well. We never had to ask for another drink or signal the server the entire meal."

  • "We used a Living Social deal but were allowed to be flexible and try the whole menu. The home made charcuterie selection is one of the best I have tasted (and my dad was a butcher who made his own meats and pates). Be sure to try a selection, especially the duck and pate. Mussels were sweet and perfect with the fries, whole branzini was cooked perfectly but next time I'd ask for the sauce on the side. Generous portions so we ended up taking some food home. The pickle plate is a treat, the beignets with caramel, blossom sauce an ideal end to meal. Great staff, did not rush us. Nice Russian River wine for $48. Cheaper wines available. Large central table for parties. Kids were made welcome there and didn't intrude on the experience."

  • "If you like meat this is your place. Unusual dishes, cooked to perfection. And the pickled vegetables are among the best I have ever tasted."

  • "Overall a worthwhile dining experience. There are many who are far more qualified to review this restaurant than I, and my impression is that the chef was experimenting with a target diner in mind whose palate is more refined than mine. I did enjoy that sometimes an initial bitterness gave way to interesting flavors. When we left, we asked our server to call us a cab. When it arrived, a couple of people tried to jump into it, but she chased them off. Go server!"

  • "We sampled two entrees and a charcuterie plate plus olives. Everything was spectacular! Service was great to boot. Would definitely return, and have heard that the brunch is fantastic. Planning to make it one of my new go-to spots for a late night snack."

  • "What a great restaurant. We were blown away by the quality of both the food and the service. The bone marrow was outstanding, as was the charcuterie. The wine list, too - short, but hit every mark as far as I'm concerned. The dry riesling was a perfect accompaniment to the meal, and I was thrilled with this recommendation by our server. My only complaint would be the tight quarters and overall noise level, but what can you expect from a popular, surprisingly affordable restaurant of this quality? Our experience was fantastic on pretty much every level - I HIGHLY recommend this place!"

  • "amazing food, the rabbit and bone marrow were my favorite. We had the travelzoo deal, 2 appetizers and 2 entrees plus one dessert for 50 bucks. Totally worth it. But they have specials where you can order 2 entrees for 25. The service was excellent, definitely going there again to try out the rest of the menu"

  • "Everything A-Z is great here from those that answer the phone, seat you and greet you, serve you the delicious food, make great recommendations, and keep you happy and filled up where it matters! :) It is always a huge treat and something to definitely look forward to for weeks if I know I will get the opportunity to have a meal here!"

  • "Came here for a date and loved the atmosphere- dark blue walls, wooden bar in the back with views of the kitchen. Thoroughly enjoyed the wine and rich food on a cold January night. This is a solid spot for a tasty and affordable dinner if you love meat."

  • "The house salad with Prosciutto, shaved fennel, butter lettuce and Pomegranate was excellent. We also had Smoked Duck Breast, di Norcia, Coppa and Spanish Chorizo all was perfect."

  • "I've had a couple of great brunch experiences here but dinner was only so-so, and overpriced for what we got. So good for a drinks and snack, but not a good choice for dinner. Service good, but too overt -- we needed more quiet time but she was clearing our plates as soon as the last bite was off. That said, go for an early cocktail and snack before the show, or after work relaxed happy hour -- only because the ambiance is so chill"

  • "Beast and the Hare is a comfortable neighborhood restaurant that I tried out largely because of the 1000 pt. Opentable bonus. The deviled eggs were a good start, bright and flavorful. The duck bolognese pasta was even more flavorful but the portion was pretty stingy. Would have been happier with tad more pasta. The burger was juicy but not very memorable in spite of the cheese and bacon that was also piled on. Thankfully, the service was warm, friendly and attentive."
    Dined on 12/10/2013
  • "Was surprised that one quarter of the menu was chacuterie. For main food options there was 2 pastas and 3 meats with one of them being a burger. There were 3 salad options but at $9 each that seemed pricy. Kale salad was grilled and unusual but over dressed so ask for dressing on the side. Did love the rabbit over polenta and would go back for that. Just don't go with vegetarians or non game or non pork eaters."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "...but really good chacuterie, small but well focused menu, and an similarly interesting wine list. Very friendly and helpful waitress as well. It was extremely quiet early on a week day but the food was very good."

  • "Service wasn't great and they weren't busy either. I've had better antipasti/charcuterie elsewhere. The proportions were off as well. I'll probably loop back around at some point to give it a try, but it's going to be a while."

  • "I went to this restaurant with my friends for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the dishes that were offered. The ingredients are fresh and serving sizes just right. They have good beers on tap as well! We were there around 7 PM but quickly filled up towards 8 PM."

  • "Really enjoyed Beast and the Hare for a group weekend brunch - the restaurant wasn't crowded and the staff were happy to give us all a lot of attention. While the menu isn't conventional brunch fare, it isn't intimidating, either - we really enjoyed the duck hash and the brunch salad was well received, too. Overall, a great, very presentable place to spend a Sunday morning."
