A word from Stephi's On Tremont
On Newbury Street it’s a legend. Now it’s time for Stephanie’s to stake its claim in the South End. Stephi’s on Tremont is set to open this winter, in the coveted former home of The Garden of Eden on
Tremont at Union Park. This second Steph’s will feature many of the same elements that have made the Back Bay location a landmark: Floor-to-ceiling windows, a substantial patio and, of course, prime corner real estate will make for outstanding people watching in one of the city’s most fabulous neighborhoods. Always a favorite for its comfortable, somewhat residential décor and service, Stephanie’s is a go-to for lunch, brunch and dinner…in the summer and the winter…for an afternoon drink or a blow-out celebration. A sophisticated comfort menu inspired by the original (and even including some of the classics) will be served in the bar & lounge, the dining room and a private dining room for special events. Stephanie’s feels like home, but better. Now come home to the South End!

    Surly hostess. I had a 12:30 brunch reservation and wasn't seated until 12:45, although I had arrived at 12:20. She kept saying "a couple more minutes". Not worth the wait.

    Went for our 13th yr anniversary. Restaurant staff was friendly and attentive; drinks were great; and food was excellent. Since we went at 6 pm, there weren't many people so the restaurant was pretty quiet. By 7:30 pm when we left, it was getting pretty busy and the noise level was much higher but not bothersome. Great visit.

    We went to Stephie's after the theatre. Service was outstanding and the food was excellent. The wait staff and management was attentive to every detail....water filled, empty plates removed, quality and satifaction checked, dessert menues delivered...not invasive, but responsive. Would definitely go back. Want to try Sunday brunch!

    My family and I decided to go to Stephi's for our Christmas Eve dinner because no one wanted to cook 2 days in a row. I figured Stephi's would be a great spot because it always has a lovely ambience and hip vibe. We were all very pleased with the service (they held our table for 20 minutes because we were running a bit late), drinks and food - my brother particularly loved his black trumpet dusted scallops. We will all definitely return, either as a group or individually.

    Dined on 12/19/2013
    I've been here a handful of times for brunch and enjoyed it. Took my two team members here as an appreciation lunch before the holidays. Service was great but food was very mediocre - ok I'm limiting this to my dish. I got the yellowfin tuna salad that had some highlights (pears were good), but felt like a high end salad you'd find at Applebee's. The lettuce felt iceberg/romaine heavy and the tuna had zero seasoning on it. There was a soy glaze dressing that I believe should have been meant for the tuna, but was inexplicably coated in a thin layer on the plate, hidden underneath the already dressed salad. Very odd. Once I wiped up the soy glaze up with the tuna, much better. Just expected much better execution for a $17-18 salad.

    The restaurant exceeded our expectations. We had a nice booth by the window. We had a Saintbury Carneros Rose wine, which was light and tart. The chowder was creamy and tasty. The arctic char was perfectly done - not too dry, not too rare and its accompaniments, a savory broccolini with olives, and a very smooth polenta, only added to the delight of this dish. The lamb shank was meaty and moist, and the "au jus" enriched the root vegetable and potato accompaniment. The wait staff was professional and friendly, adding to our dining pleasure. Despite the late hour (10 pm), the bar scene was very vibrant, and its noise "leaked" into the dining room. For its price point, we both felt Stephi's was a great value.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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".

    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.

    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!

    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!

    Stephi's has been excellent in the past for lunch...dinner was a different story. The bar was extremely loud and boisterous for a Sunday night (but not mobbed). It took our server 30 minutes to get us our first round of drinks . When they came out, she messed up a tanqueray up. Ridiculous. We ordered just after in fear we would never get it. It took forever too. This was a terribly embarrassing night for me as I wanted to bringy parents to a nice place. Terrible.
