A word from Kingston Station
Kingston Station is conveniently located in Downtown Crossing, near Boston’s financial center, theater district and Chinatown. The menu provides a variety of American bistro favorites like Seared Tuna Nicoise Salad, Steak Frites, and Seared Scallops with Lemon Risotto. Kingston Station provides a casual downtown environment reminiscent of a classic railway station. Walls are a mix of vintage white subway tiles and tea stained paint. Tables and chairs are mismatched to create a comfortable atmosphere. The front café area has marble mosaic tiles, flooded with natural light. The restaurant is perfect for a fun and casual night out on the town.

    We loved the food - our 20 something kids and friend had Kingston burgers which were fantastic. I had veggie burger which was best I've had in Boston. Cocktails were very good. We went on a Friday night and there were lots of after work groups dining-- a very energetic and enthusiastic atmosphere.

    A small menu with creative choices, excellent drink options. We loved this unexpected find in the middle of the business district. It had a hoppin' happy hour but thankfully we were seated in a quieter section in the back. Pear salad and brie sandwiches were delicious, as were the scallops and the blackberry margarita.

    FYI... they only offer valet at dinner, so lunch is self park/self pay. Food was very good- Steak Frites is their specialty and they spare no expense (or calories!) on making it wonderful. My companion had the fish and chips; the filet was HUGE and it came with a mountain of chips and homemade tartar sauce. Service was good and unobtrusive, but the later it got, the busier it got and we were pretty much left alone with empty drinks. But, it was lunch rush. I would certainly return.

    My husband and i tried Kingston Station for first time saturday night. Food and service were excellent. The menu is not overwhelming. Easy to make a decision with the various options of apps and entrees. The chef's take on ice cream could not have been better with the infusion of lavender and other offerings! The owner cam over and introduced himself making us feel welcome. Strongly recommend!

    Love love love the food and drinks here! Came with a girl friend for a low key girls night and it was perfect. The truffle gruyere fries are a must! My only complaint would be that the servers/bussers were overeager to clear plates before we were ready which got a little annoying on the third time. The service as a whole is excellent though!

    We went to Kingston Station before seeing a show at the Boston Opera House. We were expecting pub fare (which would have been fine), but the food was surprisingly good. The portions were a little small, but maybe that's just because we loved everything we ordered. Our servers were also really friendly and provided spot on service. I would definitely recommend it and I hope to go back soon.

    Food was very good. Dissapointing was only that we did not get any bread which would have been good for the mussles sauce (we had the mussles as appetizer). Dessert was delicious (Crepes). Restaurant is a little bit dark though.

    Had six for dinner and everyone enjoyed their dishes. The staff was super attentive. The atmosphere is nice quite nice. Dark for early evening but I got adjusted and was able to read my menu. The one issue I had was tip added to the bill. Added at 20% they may or may not have short changed themselves. This really aggravates me.

    Fair to disappointing. My food was ok. My guest's food was done incorrectly, though we had inquired ahead of time as to how the meat was done. Fries for the steak frites were uneven - crunchy when burned, soggy when not, over-salted. Pass

    A really nice "hidden" spot on a nearly empty street close to Downtown Crossing. It was busy, but definitely not crowded to too noisy to hear the conversation at your table. Our waitress was very friendly, fun (she seemed to genuinely enjoy how much we enjoyed our meal!), and was very helpful when it came to making a good wine selection (which it was!) The food was INCREDIBLE. The mussels appetizer had such a flavorful broth, and as for my main meal (the steak and fries): hands down, this place has the BEST (truffle oil?) FRIES EVER. I will be back for more of those! The cheese sauce that came with it was the most delectable dipping option for both the fries and the steak. And the pot de creme dessert was heavenly!

    A usual lunch spot, Kingston proved a good location for a relaxed dinner. Plenty of places in Boston to have mussels with fries, but at Kingston, they were garlicky, and the fries smothered in truffle oil, cheese and rosemary - unbeatable and fully addictive. staff are attentive and professional, and it's a nice atmosphere with the lights down low.

    Kingston Station has a very busy bar scene, but even with the Friday crowd, we were seated right away in a quieter room. Our server visited us immediatly, introduced herself and took our drink order. She was also quite helpful in answering questions about the menu. The appetizer came faster than expected and our dinners arrived after we were finished. The dinner and desert courses were brought by team so everyone was served at once. The menu is varied and everyone found a wonderfully meal to their liking. The portions were well sized, we all let full but not in pain. We would highly recommend Kingston Station.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 1/19/2013
    My only complain about Kingston station, is that on this occasion our reservation did not guarantee us a table at the time specified. I know this happens from time to time, so I didn't make big deal out of it. The host told us that it would only take 10-15 minutes to get a table. We sat at the bar to pass the time and got drinks. We sat there for a total of 45 minutes waiting for table. We ate at the bar so we could catch a movie we were about to run late to. By the time we ordered, our table was ready, but it was too late. Probably not typical, but frustrating none the less.

    Great place for lunch if you're looking to just escape the office, meet up with some friends, or host a business luncheon! I ate here for a business lunch and was very impressed the Ahi Tuna was outstanding, I have never had it prepared that way before. Their dinner menu looked quite good too, definitely a return visit needed!

    My fiancé and I wanted a calm, not over the top New Year's Eve dinner. That's exactly what we got. We were early for our reservation, but they sat us right away. Our waitress was attentive and welcoming. I had the steak frites with the truffle fries, which are amazing. My fiancé had the Station Burger which he thought was really good too. Drinks were well priced and very well made. The only issue I had was the seating, which is bistro style and the tables were quite close together which lead to a few uncomfortable moments. As we started to leave it started to fill up and get noisier, but that's normal for a festive time.

    The ahi tuna sandwich was awful! It wasn't what I expected at all: a fried patty, that looked like a veggie burger, with a faint rawness inside. It should have been described as a tuna burger, not an ahi tuna burger. Plus, it was way too oily.
