Amrheins has been a Boston tradition since 1890. For over a century, diners throughout the city of Boston have been welcomed into Amrheins to enjoy quality meals amongst friends and neighbors. Today that tradition continues in our updated facility. Despite the renovations in 2005, Amrheins is still full of history. Amrheins is the proud home of the oldest hand carved bar in America and still has the first Draft Beer pump in Boston on display. But what really makes Amrheins special is its dedication to quality cuisine and superior service. We hope that you join us again soon.

The weekend brunch menu was disappointing compared to the reviews for the rest of the dining. We will probably go back to try the regular menu at some point.

The staff were very boisterous at tile which made hearing people across the table was hard.

The dining room was not particularly busy being a Sunday night. The bar was pretty noisy so it was busy. I ordered veal scallopini which tasted good, but I figured out the calf must have had lots of free range because it was as tough as shoe leather and didn't taste like any veal that I've ever had. I would have sent it back, but by the time I got a steak knife so I could cut the meat, the rest of my party were almost finished eating! My Caesar salad was room temperature. Everybody else enjoyed their meal. My friend's clam chowder was very good as usual.. Our server was very accommodating but not good at asking if we needed anything else.Two Italian entrees, I would have thought she would have automatically brought grated cheese to our table .We had to ask her a few times for things..

I was a little disappointed that my meal was not up to their usual standard. Amrheins parking lot is a great plus. Nonetheless we really like going there for the food. Any place can have an off night as well as a server who could use a refresher on service.

I was only expecting only average bar food, but I was pleasantly surprized! My cobb salad was super fresh and the green goddess dressing was outstanding (freshly made too, not from a bottle). I’ll be back to try more during after work hours!

I really love this restaurant however the service is painfully slow when you sit outside. My last experience it took 20mins to flag the waitress down for the check, additional 15mins to have her pick it up with the card and another 10mins to get it back....WAY too long!

The only problem was that the main dining room was closed and there was so much noise from the bar area that we had trouble hearing each other. They told us the dining area was closed because it was reserved. We left after a nice dinner after 9:00 pm at that time the room was dark, no lights. As usual We took my brother who, is in a nursing home, out to dinner at this restaurant as we do when we come From New Year and North Caroline every 4 to 6 weeks. The service and food were both great. I asked to talk to the manager but he never came out. We will continue to go to this restaurant as the food and service are great.

The lobster ravioli is delicious! Quaint and romantic, this restaurant is great for those who want great tasting food with a delicious wine over the ambiance of a candle lit dinner. Great place where you can actually hear the people at the dinner table talking.

Oldvelle (as opposed to nouvelle) charm. A local favorite that withstands the test of time. We sat in the back where it was quieter, but if you are looking for lively the bar has plenty of that. Love this place!

We asked for a special table and were brought to a table in front on the kitchen doors. I asked several times why we could not eat in the dining room vs. the sports bar and never were accomodated. I finally asked to speak to the Manager and he told me it was a slow night and
they opted to not open the dining room which was a sneeze away from where we were seated.
No apologize or special treat, but said that Open Table does not communicate. Very poor service and accomodation on behalf of the Managment for sure. The Service staff was very nice, but not their fault.

This was my first visit to Amrheins. My wine glass had dried lipstick on it. The silverware looked dirty, though with closer inspection it seemed clean but needed polishing. The noise was almost unbearable. The food was very good and the service was excellent. The wine was very good. We had a reservation and when we arrived we were seated immediately. I had the lamb chops and the entree and sides were delicious. My friend ordered one of the salmon entrees, and was really pleased with the salmon and his sides. I would go there again to try other menu items. With just a few tweaks, this could be a 5-star restaurant.

Anthony our waiter was amazing. He was tentative, check in, brought drinks quickly and made my mother and I laugh.

The food was incredibly delicious, I would return if I’m in Boston again. The cocktail shrimp was amazing, and the lobster ravioli was the best I’ve ever had.

You almost had to scream to be heard - energetic is being very kind - it was horribly loud. My friend had chicken which was so tough it was inedible. I have to give credit to our waitress who was charming and helpful. Two other waitresses came over to the table in back of us - and leaning on the back of our booth - proceeded to enter into their conversation yelling as loudly as the customers. It was a most unpleasant evening and one I will never repeat

Visiting from out of town and took a hotel recommendation. WOW! What a find. I WILL return. We all tasted each dish and I want to return for the shrimp scampi. The beet salad was a great healthy alternative after a vacation full of eating. When I am back in Boston, I will definitely return. Prices are reasonable. The menu is diverse and the service was super. Friendly servers were great. The tiramisu dessert was a perfect end to the meal, too.

I have been having a monthly lunch here for eight years. I have found the food OK at best. But this week
I ordered the Neapolitan Calamari, it was outstanding. It should be on the main menu. Great flavor
