Most romantic restaurant in Boston. Fantastic service!! Food was dated and heavy, but my night was still great because our waiter was so great and the space was so romantic and cozy. The desserts were amazing!!

Very Satisfying dining experience
We returned to the Hungry I for brunch after a wonderful dinner a few years ago. We were not disappointed. Everything was terrific, from ambience to the service to the delicious food. The 3-course Easter brunch was reasonably priced at $34. We walked away very satisfied, and will definitely return in the future.

Another AMAZING holiday brunch
Another amazing holiday brunch at the Hungry I. The service is superb and the meal outstanding. The potato pancake with HOMEMADE boursin was awesome and the eggs over curred hash beautiful. The french toast was sweet and salty with a little big of ham along with the special fish with risotto. Make sure to save room for the famous walnut pie, but I also love the lemon rum cake equally as much.

Sensational Charles Street Dining
This under-the-street venue has survived in Boston at the foot of Beacon Hill for a very good reason: superb French cuisine marvelously prepared and served wonderfully by engaging waiters in a very special atmosphere. We have been going there each Boston visit for many years.

Food was not a 5, but I believe
Food was not a 5, but I believe it was more our choices than the food itself. Other times I would have rated it higher. It is a great place for a quite evening.

All of our main courses were expertly crafted -- salmon melting in your mouth, duck perfectly executed and scallops rich with interesting flavors and as beautifully rendered as presented. Service was exceptional, patient yet responsive. We asked for a wine selection, a general type, that was not on the menu and behold, it came to the table anyway. There is so much more here than meets the eye.

Romantic ambiance with old
Romantic ambiance with old fashioned charm. Outside courtyard was very charming. Food was well presented. It was a very hot weekend and it would have been nice to see a cold entree offering. Desserts delicious but again needed one summer offering. We have been to the Hungry i many times and it does not disappoint.

Hungry I: Great with some flaws
The Hungry I has a nice history, a great menu, friendly service, and the kind of ambiance that fits right in to its location on historic Charles Street. While the food was imaginative, there were two serious disappointments for us: we ordered a Catena Malbec from a wide-ranging list, but were served a Malbec from Navarra Correas, a comparable wine, but we should have been told that our first choice was not available. Even more annoying, this first-class restaurant offered no tea service, beyond Lipton's and a cup of luke-warm water. Most restaurants of this class have a wide range of teas, from black to herbal, and serve a pot of near boiling water so that diners can make the tea as strong as they wish.

Impressive, hidden gem
You'll miss this restaurant if you're just walking down the street and aren't looking for it. We had a fantastic meal. The food was superb, and their specials were creative. Unfortunately, there was a party in the back so we didn't get to check out the fabled garden that is apparently the coolest part of the I.

The back patio is the perfect setting for a romantic summer evening in Beacon Hill. I didn't want to leave!

My date and I were treated to a first class experience. And romantic! Great food and the general manager could not do enough for us.We'll keep coming back.

Hungry I a wonderful experience
Visited this charming restaurant during Restaurant Week and had a fabulous time. The special menu was very extensive and the regular menu was great. Selections included items that all tastes could appreciate. The wine list was long and contained many interesting selections. Service was friendly and crisp, without being pushy. The interior is beautifully decorated and they have a patio area for nice weather days. They have a full bar but we didn't use it. Parking is tough but there are public garages in the area.

Brunch at it best
The stir-fry with sea scallops was very appetizing. The fried egg with ham,cheese and salsa pleasantly exceeded expectation.

Wonderful, romantic evening
We went to this restaurant at the recommendation of a friend who is from Boston. We were celebrating our honeymoon. It was a lovely, romantic restaurant, with excellent ambience, and the food was excellent. The service was okay, a little disappointing for such a well-appointed restaurant, but overall it was a lovely experience, especially where we sat on the outdoor terrace, which was very romantic.

Beacon Hill gem full of charm
Returned for a visit to The Hungry I on a recent weekend trip to Boston. We used to live in that neighborhood and were regulars years ago, but we hadn't visited since moving to the midwest over 10 years ago. The restaurant was even more charming than I remembered, the food delicious and service attentive but not overbearing. Loved everything about it and can't wait to return next time we are in town......a true Boston gem!

Excellent French cuisine
Although the menu we found online was different from what we received in the restaurant, the meal was excellent. From the romain salad to the pumpkin dumpling appetizer to the peppered Venison and pistachio crusted sea bass, we were delighted with every bite.

Romantic & charming
Absolutely wonderful dining experience. The atmosphere is very romantic, with a cozy fireplace and charming decorative touches. The menu provided many choices, which would suit all tastes, and the wine list was extensive. Service was crisp and friendly, and the food was delicious. We had pate and escargot for appetizers, and beef bourguignon and Atlantic cod with gravlox for entrees. All tasted terrific and the portions were generous.
Parking in that area of town is difficult, but they do have a valet service. Because the restaurant is small, reservations would be a good idea.

Wonderful special night out
Hungry I is one of my new favorites.
The staff was exceptional & the food amazing.
Perfect restaurant for a special occasion or to have a relaxing drink at the small quiet bar.

Friendly and intimate
We dined at The Hungry I on a Sunday night with only about 8 other customers. The waiter was friendly and attentive, the food was excellent, and the cocktails top notch (an excellent old fashioned in a french restaurant?!?). Recommended!

We had a wonderful dining
We had a wonderful dining experience. The food and service are superb. There were very few other patrons so it was quiet. If all the tables had been full, I suspect it would have gotten noisy.

A memorable experience
The Hungry I is a place to spend a memorable night with someone special. The food and service is excellent and the food is outstanding. The ambiance is romantic and it is a place where you really feel transformed as if to a European village. I would highly recommend this restaurant to others!

Unique, charming experience
I took my girlfriend here for her birthday, and I (we) couldn't have been happier with the choice: Chris was incredibly accommodating, even giving us a private tour of the restaurant afterwards. A very unique menu, incredible ambiance, and somewhere where I will be taking my future spouse for years to come I hope.
