Sinking in to the nicely lighted, lively hotel restaurant, the ambience reminds me of a New York City restaurant in 2017: couples holding hands, young professionals, all ages of diners. The service is outstanding, prompt, personable. And the food. Oh wow, the food! I had a perfectly medium-rare burger with ideal ratio meat to bun. My sister had a double lobster roll. And we started with a hummus plate. I highly recommend Art Bar for its food, professional staff, and atmosphere. (Don't let the construction of the mall across the street throw you). There is a rive-side patio overlooking the Charles River and the Salt -n-Pepper Bridge that is iconic Boston.

Unfortunately, I was not happy with our last visit. I'm not sure whether the restaurant has suffered significantly during the pandemic but both the food and service were very disappointing. The lobster in my lobster roll was overcooked, the Wagyu steak was nothing special, and the service was very slow and inattentive. Also, the outside patio was closed so it was indoor dining only. (I picked ArtBar for Mother's Day because we prefer outdoor dining right now.)

My biggest criticism is the price was fairly steep for the small portion I was given. Also we were given a slight discount on parking in their garage for eating at the restaurant, but I would have hoped to have been fully comped on it.

The food took 50 minutes and was mediocre at best and cold. They must have been out of food because one of the meals came out with different sauce and sides. Dessert was terrible and didnt even make up for a bad dinner. I would not go back!

So when it's nice out, do go to Art Bar in the Sonesta hotel. The food is ordinary, average hotel menu with decent alcoholic beverages, but if you're there for al fresco dining with a view, it's worthwhile.

Short rib dinner was luke warm and the short rib was pretty dried out and stringy. disappointing meal. Server was excellent. Attentive without being intrusive.

I don’t know how you manage to make brussel sprouts fried with bacon taste like a faint smell of trash, but they sure managed it. This place is not a restaurant- it’s a hotel cafeteria- and a terrible one at it.
