We were very pleased withWe were very pleased with our experience at Post 390. We ate there before theater so we didn't have much time. We let the restaurant know that we only had a little over an hour to eat, and we were very happy because we were able to each order appetizers and entrées and eat comfortably during the allotted time. The crab and watermelon appetizer was refreshing and delicious! My husband also enjoyed his tuna appetizer. The chicken was savory and well prepared. The swordfish was also excellent! My friend was very pleased with the steak frites. Our server understood our needs, and we were able to enjoy a relaxing meal despite the time constraints. We definitely recommend this restaurant, and we will return in the future.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBeat our expectationsHad heard good things but was never on top of my list. The seafood was fantastic. Also had the watermelon salad which I would recommend. Impressed with the wine list and the knowledge and service provided by the sommelier. Wait service was just average and the noise level was high with tables tooclosetogether but overall we recommend Post 390 for the food and wine. Bar scene is good to if you are into that.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood foodWe saw a play then went to dinner with friends. Found a reservation for 4 right away. Waitress was fun and energetic. Food was good and well made.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ServiceEveryone was very friendly. When we told our waiter that we had less than an hour for lunch and wanted the check with the meal, he delivered. I noticed good team work between the staff at the restaurant, as well.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is a big place with a lotIt is a big place with a lot of people and a lot going on but it wasn't overwhelming or overly difficult to continue a conversation. The food was very good and our group of six had five different meals, highlighting the variety of the menu. The wine list is good and it's easy to pick out a nice bottle from most of the well known regions.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived at 6:15 for a 7pmWe arrived at 6:15 for a 7pm reservation, expecting to wait in the bar. We were seated immeadiately at an upstairs window table and enjoyed cocktails and appetizers before ordering dinner. The service was great. We weren't rushed. The food was delicious and interesting. The room filled as the evening progressed but the noise level never hindered our conversation. I would gladly dine there again.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter was very attentiveOur waiter was very attentive and the food was amazing!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderfulBeautiful without pretension.

Can't wait to retunr.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went here for our pre-marathonWe went here for our pre-marathon dinner and I was the one running, I was happy with my pasta dish, did the job I ran my fastest marathon to date :-), my family all raved about how good their meals were... someone had the smoked whole fish, very impressive presentation. My husband and a few others had the flank steak and raved about it. The best part was our service, so impressed, our waiter Matt spent a lot of time making sure my 19month old daughter was happy, she was on her best behavior and I think its bc the waiter was really going out of his way to entertain her.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was wonderful andThe food was wonderful and the service was top notch.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite restaurants,One of our favorite restaurants, always great food and great service...very highly recommend.

Staff were friendly, food and drinks were great, and the atmosphere was a good mix of lively and romantic.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMVery credible food, nice BackVery credible food, nice Back Bay view. The downstairs fireplace is the highlight.
The service played a shell game with the sparkling water bottles which became an interruption, along with many check in to see if we were ready to order. Over-touch is a rare service problem, but that's why I dig the service to average.
I'd go back. Its a good place, but not yet a gem.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMI went to Post 390 for dinnerI went to Post 390 for dinner one night during restaurant week and was overall very pleased with the experience. Post 390 offered the option to add a wine pairing to each course, which was superbly done, as to be expected, and really made the meal. The service was fantastic, our server had great drink recommendation for my boyfriend who was looking for a new beer, and had a sense of humor to boot. We always a great time when we take the trip to Post 390, it's well worth every penny.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe portions were huge andThe portions were huge and we had not complaint on the food. We loved the ambiance of the place, but our server was such a sourpuss that we felt most unwelcome at this establishment.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMHad restaurant week menu foodHad restaurant week menu food was plentiful.

I will definitely come back.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Place to Relax After WorkI did recommend Post 390 for lunch. BEWARE,though - you need more than an hour. The downstairs is really pretty with a fireplace in the center of the room. We were seated on the second floor - which was nice and bright with the natural sunlight coming through the windows. Service was slow, but our server was knowledgeable about the menu and once he did come over, he never rushed us with our questions. The food was great! The lobster bisque was amazing and not heavy like most bisques; my eggplant panini with olive tapenade was refreshing.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant Week menu was fabulous,Restaurant Week menu was fabulous, presentation awesome, the wait staff very attentive but not intrusive and the wine pairing an excellent match. Nice place for a dinner meeting or a date. Upstairs is much quieter than downstairs.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service at PostThe food and service at Post 390 was excellent. Post 390 is definitely a great dinner option for small groups or dates.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful place. The serviceWonderful place. The service was excellent and the food was wonderful. I never would have thought of having a fried quail salad. My only complaint was that the restaurant week menu posted online listed a different dessert that I was VERY excited for and was quite disappointed in the change. The chocolate dessert was still good but not what I was hoping for so I felt a bit cheated. The decor was wonderful and it was great that me and my date were seated a bit away from most of the patrons.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMRequest a table near the fireplaceRequest a table near the fireplace for additional ambiance.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingWe have been there for dinner twice and both times everything was outstanding.

Great food, good service, and nice atmosphere.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is just a lovely restaurant,This is just a lovely restaurant, a nice experience from the inviting fireplaces to the friendly staff. Two levels keeps the energy from getting out of hand, and bars on each level provide convenience and choices. The menu is not too large, which is a plus, just enough choices to be interesting. Service matched the quality of the food. We will be back!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly incredible foodOne of the best meals I have ever had. Truly a gem in Boston. Do not walk, run to Post 390.12/15/2012 12:00:00 AMFrom soups to creme brûlé - YUM!Eight of us enjoyed great food and service at Post 390 during Restaurant Week! It's unusual for everyone to enjoy everything. From soup to calamari, the appetizers were hits. From macaroni and cheese to salmon, the entrees were yummy! And, the desserts from creme brûlée to banana cream pie, were to die for!1/1/0001 4:00:00 PMGood food and atmosphere butGood food and atmosphere but price was too high for the experience. Captive audience in Back Bay probably the reason1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
