We are never disappointed
We are never disappointed with this restaurant - good food, service and ambiance. There's a buzz but you can still hear your own table's conversation. It is our go-to place before theatre events at Boston Center for the Arts.

Had a great business lunch
Had a great business lunch at Stephi's on Thurs. My first time there from out of town. Menue diversity was excellent and interesting. I had the Miso Salmon salad, which was very good. Service was attentive and cordial. Sat out front on the patio--beutiful sunny day--and my only complait is they really need some umbrellas. While the day was mild and sunny, the sun in the face for over an hour was a little tough after a while. With an umbrella it would have been perfect. Would definitely go back.

4 of us enjoyed various meals at Stephi's, my first time at that location. It's a very pleasant room with a medium sized bar. Our server was fine if a bit awkward. The cod w/ bacon/corn chowder and potato was very good and people seemed to enjoy their bacon mac n cheese, pasta w/ sausage and rabe and pork cutlet. Good pour of gruner veltliner. OK fudge bread pudding for dessert.

Great as always!
I chose Stephi's on Tremont for a birthday lunch for a dear friend. The food, service, and setting were perfect and made for a fun and relaxed occassion.

Stephi's is exactly what they
Stephi's is exactly what they say they are: great, high-end comfort food. The restaurant is small but still spacious enough, and the look of the place is very pleasant. I ordered the macaroni and cheese with bacon, and my wife ordered the seabass. We were both very satisfied and would return here any time.

Celebrating a graduation with five. Everyone loved their food. Service was great. Loved the warm goat cheese app.

Prompt is good!
Dinner before theater was fast and good. Drinks arrived in minutes, dinners were served simultaneously and hot, and food was very, very good. Just what one hopes for and doesn't always achieve. Even the valet parking worked to our advantage: park once, walk to theater, car reclaimed in 5 minutes. I wouldn't do Stephi's for a special occasion, but it works beautifully for lunch, for a South End stroll, for pre-anything nearby.

We loved going here on a Wednesday night! It was fun, warm and a great meal! Definitely going again!

Lovely lunch before the theater
The location in the South End was perfect for lunch before seeing a terrific show at the Calderwood. The menu was ample with many choices but not ooverwhelming. Although we sat indoors, the outdoor seating on Tremont looked appealing. We did make our reservations based on the valet parking which, although notmentioned on the website, is NOT available at lunch......very disappointing and we were late for lunch and the theatre seeking parking in a very crowded area.
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had an early dinner so restaurant was not crowded. Service was very good and the food was wonderful. Air conditioning was a bit much but this could be due to the fact of few diners early on a Saturday evening.
I will go back and would recommend Stephi's on Tremont; and send thanks to the person who passed on the recommendation to me.
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
great accidental find
made a reservation on opentable as a "back up" for the night and ended up loving it! happy with food all around and service was great as well. would definitely go back.

Favorite Brunch Place
Great service and wonderful food. Loved the crab cakes Benedict.
6/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful lunch with coctails
Went to Stephi's for lunch on the mid-week holiday, and had a wonderful lunch with friends. The menu familiar but also interesting with a few unexpected ingredients & twists on classics, so each of us had difficulty picking a meal amongst the the many appetizing options. Coctail list was great and creative - lots of good pitcher options as well. Everyone enjoyed their meals and drinks. Overall a great experience and I'd highly recommend Stephi's. No complaints.

Tasty with great service
We were a party of 6 on Saturday night and Stephie's gave us their private dining room. All 6 had entree salads which were fresh, interesting, substantial and delicious. Serve with loaves of hot complimentary garlic bread- it was the perfect pr-bachelorette meal.
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
hostess very responsive
I called ahead to note that my guest had requested a quiet table so we could talk. They said they would do their best, but the tables were close together so the layout wasn't optimal. When I arrived, I discussed this with the hostess, who offered me one of the tables upfront, set apart from the rest and where there was less echo. When a family with a small child was seated next to us, the hostess came over and asked us if we wanted to be re-seated. She moved us to a table against a wall, which helped to reduce the sound some.
I appreciated her sensitivity and attention to a situation that could have put us in a difficult spot (had we asked to be moved). Meal was good and the server was friendly and helpful in answering questions.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Both the food and the service were excellent as always. The Bloody Mary menu is very creative and extremely well executed. It's hard to find something we didn't like about the place.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very high end dining experience. Didn't expect something like this from a comfort food restaurant. I definitely recommend it!!!!!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
BEEN HERE FOUR TIMES IN A
BEEN HERE FOUR TIMES IN A 18 MONTHS ... ALWAYS EXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICES... GOOD SIZED PORTIONS... SALMON WAS DELISH !!

Great find! We were visiting
Great find! We were visiting Boston and wanted a local restaurant. Stephi's on Tremont was a short walk from the downtown area. The restaurant has outdoor seating, open windows, great menu, and excellent service.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
When I made the lunch reservation on OpenTable, an 11:30 am seating was the only reservation available. However when we got to the restaurant it was empty for nearly the entire time we were there. Surely a later time would have been available. Service and food was very good...would recommend and will go there again.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, service and comfortable
Really a four and a half stars, only negative was noise level makes it a bit hard to carry a conversation, but if that's the only problem then I can live with it. Server Jonathan was excellent, we casually mentioned we'd be sharing the two entrees we ordered and he brought them out already split, really a classy move. He was available without being annoying. Food was excellent, comfort food with great taste, the turkey club salad I could eat every day. Comfortable space, tables not too close but close enough for good energy. Definitely on the go to list.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great night out!
We had a great night out here! The drinks and food were delicious and the service was great!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went early at 6:30 so restaurant
We went early at 6:30 so restaurant was pretty quiet when we arrived and surprisingly empty for the rest of the night. Not sure whether it was the time of year (big vacation week) or the fact that other restaurants were offering specials for Restaurant Week.
There was nobody at the bar so can't comment on a vibe but it didn't matter. The evening was fine for what it was....a business dinner.
I'd go back.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice. Pricey as all south
Nice. Pricey as all south end places are. $48 for two lunch entrees and one glass of wine

A delightful surprise
Wanted some place close to SoWa Market for brunch. Pleasantly surprised. They were very accommodating even when I was late for my reservation b/c I got lost (GPS :( ) Very attentive staff.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a great time as always!
Dined outside.... Enjoyed seeing the neighborhood out and about at 8p.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Get the meatloaf hash...my fav brunch in city/south end.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been to Stephi's a number of times for dinner and lunch, and have always enjoyed it. I finally made it to brunch and it was delicious. I had Banana Pancakes with Brown Sugar Butter! YUM! My friends had the French Toast which was also Amazing. I will definitely return!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my parents here for brunch while they were visiting. We all loved our food (omlete, meatloaf hash, and crispy veggie salad). My parents want to go back every time they come to Boston!
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Noise overwhelmed the good food
I went to Stephi's after seeing a Saturday matinee - arrived at about 6:30. The place was jammed because of another event in the neighborhood, and NOISY beyond belief. The food - nice comfort food- was good but it was impossible to converse with my dinner companion because of the din.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
En route to South Station for a drop-off, we detoured to Stephi's for a sunny fall lunch. The food - shared duck confit spring rolls, followed by tuna salad and roasted salmon salad - and service were perfect and the weather just incredible. It was a great choice for a beautiful day.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Super Meatloaf Hash
Great Service, great food and atmosphere. Will be back!
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went with my Father for brunch. They have a really cool build your own bloody mary thing but since I am new to bloody marys I just asked for a generic one which was awesome. Best bloody mary I have ever had. I would definately go back just for that. As for food we both ordered the smoked salmon bagel. It was delicous but also a little disapointing because all it consisted of was a bagel with cream cheese, smoked salmon and the skimpiest shreds of red onion and when we asked for more red onion she brought out like 5 more tiny shreds. We are from NY and are use to a bagel loaded with salmon, red onion and tomato so it was just not what was expected but still super yummy. I would 100% go back here however. Great place!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went during weekday lunch
Went during weekday lunch and there was quite a crowd! Had it not been so crisp would have loved to sit outside.
Were seated quickly but took a bit for waiter to first approach. Our drinks were brought out quickly and we ordered, would have liked a munchie while waiting on entrée as it was mid-afternoon...food came out and portions were very generous. We both really enjoyed our selections and will definitely go back!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Romance and comfort
I love Stephi's on Tremont! But only if I can score a booth, otherwise, I can't hear myself think.... the noise level is the only ( and it's constant) problem.
The food is consistently fresh, perfectly prepared, and the salmon salad I typically order never disappoints. My niece and I love to rendez-vous there. The wait staff is wonderful, efficient , and personable. LOVE IT AT STEPHI'S!!!!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is very seasonally appropriate and delicious. Our server was so friendly and helpful. Great neighborhood place!
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
It was my second time at Stephi's and my first brunch. The food was delicious and interesting. My companions had brunch and I had a wonderful turkey salad. The server was sweet and didn't mind all our comings and goings. I definitely plan to go there again.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Comfort Food Comfortable Place
Excellent pre-theatre dinner. Walked in, sat down, felt like we belonged. Sincere, gracious service. Comfortable seating. When a pine nut accidentally landed on my daughter's plate, the manager immediately came out, offered to remake the plate immediately, assuring us no nuts were in the preparation.
Appetizers were special...tuna tartare and duck spring rolls. Dinners were good to very good. Only comment is that on the Short ribs with gnocci and Bolognase richness factor was a bit much, and dishes would have been as good or better with a little less oily density. Still delicious and satisfying. Desserts also solid and "comfortable".
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
The roast turkey salad is still one of the best meals on one plate on this menu. My dining partner chose the salmon, and the staff were happy to substitute a side. This survey does not offer a noise level of "too loud," which it is. Once the restaurant is hopping, the dining room is quite loud. Definitely energizing, but may not be everyone's choice. Great location near the Boston Center for the Arts.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a wonderful dinner here for my boyfriends birthday. The staff was very accommodating and worked with me ahead if time to make everything just right when we got there. Everyone wished him a happy birthdays and the manager came over and chatted with us for a moment. It was too notch. They even offered to make a dish that was on the previous menu that I mentioned I like. Excellent service.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
I loved the energy of the place.
The noise level was quite loud
But wouldn't stop me from
Going. The Open faced turkey
With cranberry and mashed
Potato was fab!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I always enjoy my meals here. Reasonably priced, delicious meals and wait staff is always courteous. Just wish it wasn't so noisy....might be the due to the wood flooring...everything just echoes.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Brunch was incredible! Crab
Brunch was incredible! Crab cakes Benedict & smoked salmon benedict both equally amazing & maybe the best breakfast potatoes i have ever had!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
better than others
We got stuck in traffic and were very late. They found a table for us and got us out of there in time for the theater. Very pleasant staff. Food was better than many of the other South End eateries on Tremont
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Could handle reservation better
This was out second time at Stephi's. Food was excellent, but we were disappointed that our reservation was not handled as requested. We were dining early 5:30, so the restaurant was not busy, and we had requested a quiet, private table. With few other parties in the restaurant, they seated us next to a boisterous party of seven.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great spot, good food. I recommend
Great spot, good food. I recommend making reservations!

Brunch with friends
Awesome little gem in South End. Our waitress was super sweet and made the experience wonderful. The food is terrific and menus are fun. Tables are tight and you are almost eating with table neighbors but that is OK given the ambiance.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
We truly enjoy the menu which features several healthy choices always served with panache.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
A warm and casual place.
This is a warm, inviting, intimate setting that maintains its casual feel. We were seated in a corner window booth that gave us wonderful views of the winter streetscape while still letting us feel a part of the dining room scene. We were served good and generous drinks, some wonderful warm bread and struggled to make choices from a menu that is both limited and has something for everyone. We ended up with the house salad and bolognese and the clam chowder and meatloaf. All were delicious. We split some outrageous chocolate bread pudding for dessert, which we couldn't and shouldn't have finished. We would absolutely go back and will and recommend Stephi's to anyone looking for good food and atmosphere. Valet parking too.
