Had a great late lunch before seeing Blue Man Group up the street. Staff could not have been nicer and the food was excellent. Would definitely recommend before any show in Boston. Great location!

We were seated promptly by friendly hostess and granted our window seat request. Waitress very helpful/knowledgeable about menu answering all our questions. My burger was cooked perfectly and the French fries were delicious!

We came after a comedy concert at a local theater. I’d never been before. I loved it. Both the food and atmosphere were great. I made reservations but we were able to get seated early. Food came quickly. I’ll certainly be back.

Offers 15% off if you have show tickets! Great value even without that. Very accommodating to reservations. May have been slightly understaffed because our server was very pressed for time, but very polite. Would go again.

The food was very good. I asked for a medium burger, got rare, ate anyway because I had a show to catch. The waiter never came back to us to refill water or ask us how are food was. Had to flag him down for a second beer and then again for the check. This place will do well because if location and vibe. Some more training for waiters and because they turn around orders so quickly they have to slow it up when grilling beef.

Made a reservation for my birthday celebration. We were seated at a tiny table on top of a pole. Drinks were terrible, literally flowery and over priced. This was their version of a martini (see photo). Nachos were good. Waiter tried. But so not worth the money spent or making a reservation.

We went here for a Valentine's dinner/pre show drinks. My wife couldn't eat her clam chowder because she was battling a stomach bug. Our server, Erin noticed and made her a magic concoction of soda water and bitters and it saved the night, and she was able to see blue man group instead if having to go home sick.

Stopped in for a quick bite with my wife before going to a show. Waiter was attentive and helpful with suggestions. She checked up on how we were doing at just the right times. Ordered your basic pub fare, nachos and cheeseburgers which were both well above pub average including well done fries. Their version of an Old Fashioned was delicious, and to top it off they played 80s music for a bit of high school nostalgia! Will definitely keep in mind when I find myself near the theater district.

Went there before seeing a show at the Wilbur Theater.

My only complaint is that they have high tables near the front, and the spacing between the tables is REALLY narrow. You need to be a size 0 to get inbetween the tables.

They have great drinks and I really enjoyed the cacciatore chicken over creamy polenta.

i am a BIG fan of jason santos - so this was especially disappointing. the service was really just OK by the server. the 3 hosts were disinterested - they would minimally engage if you initiated contact. my dinner was a terrible disappointment - lousy salad dressing - just a bunch of lettuce leaves coated with a creamy dressing (not my preferred or expected dressing for a caesar) - a few streak tips thrown along the side of the dish bb the lettuce (although they were cooked well) and a small serving of the advertised roasted brussels sprouts. very unappealing presentation....not great taste. our server never once asked how things were. this is our 2nd poor experience there - i tried it again bc i am such a jason santos fan. now i am done and will not ever recommend it.

This was a perfect place for seven of us to have dinner before a dance performance next door at the Shubert Theatre. Six of us are over 75 and one a high school senior. We all enjoyed our meals. The noise level was a bit of a problem for the older diners in our party, but overall the service was great and the food was delicious.

Went for late night dinner following show at the Schubert. Very pleasantly surprised! Food was delicious and somewhat creative for a gastro pub type restaurant. Excellent cocktails and good selection of wine and beer. Vibrant vibe. Will definitely go again next time we're in the theater district.
