went on the restaurant week
went on the restaurant week for dinner. The Cream of Hot House Tomato Soup is OK but the the Sacchetti is the best. The Petite Filet & Foie is excellent. Dessert is disappointing.
They do not have the Marshmallow Creme Brulee as on the restaurant week menu instead a velvet cake which is toooooo sweet! The Molten Brownie Sundae is nothing special but sweet either. The presentation of the food is very nice. Service is fair.

Great place for dinner! Food
Great place for dinner! Food was amazing. I was a little concerned when I learned BOKX was in a hotel, I travel alot for work so I know how hotel food can be. This place will not disappoint you! Steaks were cooked perfectly, sides were hot and Delish! Wine menu was fantastic!

Bokx 109 has the best brunch
Bokx 109 has the best brunch in or around Boston. I had the Pulled Pork Benny, my wife had the Dougie, my sister had the Crab Louie, we got the Red Velvet and White Chocolate Pancakes and the Mac Cheese Stuffed Grilled Cheese to share, everything was incredible. The service was great, the General Manager Jay wheeled his Bloody Mary cart to our table and made our Bloody Marys which were garnished with celery, lemon, lime, a pickle, a slim jim, a mozzarella stick, an olive, and a blue cheese stuffed olive, delicious. I can't wait to go back.

This was my 3rd visit yo Bokx 109-- the food was delicious as usual!
I ordered from the restaurant week special menu, the salmon was delightful.
Hopefully this will become part of the regular menu!

I was surprised at the the quality of atmosphere, food, and service. It all fit together brilliantly. We had a wonderful brunch and tasted some wonderfully unique things. Even the coffee was spectacular. The prices were very reasonable. A huge value for what we received.

Great New Find
Our first trip to Bokx 109. Great food and the service we enjoyed from Lea was the best service we have had at any restaurant in a long time. Her command of the menu and knowledge of the food preparation was outstanding. We'll certainly be back and we live in Plymouth.

Excellent meal and service.
Excellent meal and service. We were staying at the hotel and was surprised to find such a great restuarant with great live but not overpowering loud jazz music there. We were travelling up from the Philadelphia area to pick up our son from college in Boston and will come here again (and stay at the Indigo hotel too).

BoKX in Newton Mass. is a beautiful, stylish restaurant with great food & excellent service. Our steak was cooked perfectly and, the fresh vegetable sides were tasty, and high quality. The room has many options, depending upon what you are looking for. There is intimate seating as well as options for big groups. Highly recommended.

The Executive Chef, Exceptional
The preparation and presentation of the food was outstanding! It almost didn't belong in the atmosphere of the room, it was sophisticated and it felt like it belonged in an upscale New York Restaurant. We do truly appreciate it being so close to home...The Chef Steve Coe is talented in a way that shocks and pleases every sense of the palate. Thank you for such an incredible food experience.

Great food and friends
Great everything - steaks are delicious and service was fantastic. There were 6 of us in the group and our needs were definitely met.

Great food - mediocre waiter
We came back after a period of absence and food was worth the trip. Waiter on the other hand said he was there a while but offered little and didn't visit much Not back on our frequent visit list yet but we might try again with a different waiter
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
Large portions! Great for some, but not for all. That said, two of us split an entry and there was no charge for splitting,

This a great "go to" restaurant for us. The food is delicious and it is convenient. It is a bit pricey but worth it.

From the moment we arrived our host Larry was super attentive and when he sensed something was not a fit..he snapped right to it and made the adjustment. I would say it was a 10 - really awesome waiter who answered a ton of questions from my high maintenance guests and delivered and served up some truly delicious food and wine.

EXPENSIVE but tasty
My husband and I had dinner here for our anniversary recently. We knew from browsing the menu online that we were in for an expensive evening. The steaks are essentially served a la carte, with the sauces and side dishes at an additional cost. The short rib mac n cheese side dish was delicious and could have been a meal in itself. I had the tenderloin with horseradish and must admit that I've had better and for less money. My husband had the NY strip and loved it, however. We shared a brownie sundae for dessert - it was nothing special but definitely tasty. Other than the food, I was surprised to discover that the restaurant is located in a hotel, opening right out onto the pool deck. Our waitress was Leah and she was great!

The service was outstanding, she described everything on the menu to a T. She also got us awesome plastic wine glasses so we could go sit out by the pool. The outside pool deck is awesome, like a bit of South Beach in Newton.

Bokx 109 doesn't actually
Bokx 109 doesn't actually serve brunch. They have breakfast , primarily for their hotel guests but open to others, until about 10:30. That timing was what we were looking for and they allow you to stay and talk for as long as you like. Food was simple, basic breakfast fare but tasty and well-prepared. Seating is very comfortable and conducive to conversation. Pricing at breakfast also is very reasonable.

The warm asparagus and mushroom appetizer, with the poached, breaded, then fried egg, was most impressive. The crab cake and strip steak were very good, and the deconstructed prime rib was imaginative and delicious. No room for dessert, although they did bring a bowl of cotton candy with the bill. The service was a tad slow but forgivable given the complexity of the dishes. Beware of west-facing seats in the back of the dining room at sunset. The sheer curtain is not enough to keep the sun out of your eyes!

Crowd over 40
The meal was very good, the crowd is a 40 ish crowd with many older singles.

Great place to meet friends
The food was very good, the service was also excellent and nobody is in a hurry to kick you out or to order. Friendly and helpful waiters. Vibrant scene, great outdoor fire pits. The only complaint is that you cannot take your dessert outside, if you want to eat anything outdoors, then you need to start a new check outdoors and pay whatever you ate inside. The drinks are great too! A bit noisy, but fun for a weekend night with friends.

Great Anniversary Dinner Experience
Upon making the reservation, I let them know that this is wedding anniversary dinner (for no other reason than to get a decent secluded table). All employees were notified of this matter and they made every effort to make the experience special. We were greeted with glasses of champagne, later to be accompanied by a complementary appetizer. We received just the right amount of attention and service. The food and ambiance were great. I would highly recommend Bokx 109 to food lovers (especially steak lovers) and those who enjoy good service.

Good food, not so good service
Great girls night out. Food was great! But, the service was not. Waiter was not attentive and mixed up the food order .

A place ofr good steak
We went there for steak. It was above average, not the best I've ever had but much better than "average". Price was reasonable.

We will not be going back.
Just don't think the cost = the food quality.

Red glasses to wide for many hands. Very hard to hold.
Dining chairs too low for tables. Booth benches also too low.
Dining chairs too hard to move in and out. Need glides or casters.
Menus are too stylish and not very patron friendly. Ditch them for something easier to navigate. They are also difficult to read because of the poor lighting. Classy lighting is no good if the guest cannot read the menu.
Food very good and beautifully presented. Just fix the other stuff and you will have a really nice place to dine.

A fabulous dinner for two!
Most of my time spent at Bokx is for corporate functions during the week. However, my fiancé and I decided to hit Bokx for a Friday night date night. We had a wonderful night. Our server was fantastic and the food was out of this world. The best steak tartare and carpaccio I have had yet and amazing fries. We will def. be going back to Bokx.
