Raised mahogany paneling, banquette seating, mosaic tile flooring, etched glass, discrete mirrors and a large fireplace help to create a refined and comfortable bistro environment on Charles Street in Beacon Hill. A true urban neighborhood venue, The Beacon Hill Bistro is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week. While breakfast and lunch have an American/International flavor, at dinner the accent is decidedly French. Lucas Sousa crafts menus calling on modern bistro cuisine, “striving to balance tradition with modern tastes and techniques.” The Bistro also serves late-night dinners until 11:00 p.m. for the after-theatre, symphony, and film crowd. And, of course, Sunday brunch.

We really enjoyed everything! Beautiful space and good food. Service was on point. We gave it 4 stars because everything met our expectations, but there wasn't anything exceptional about the overall experience.

Didn't care for the menu, or what we ordered. After years of being regulars at BHB, we won't be back. Too bad to have lost this neighborhood go-to.

Good room, pleasant greeting, but from there the food disappoints.
Flatbread is burnt, tomato sauce uninspired; pasta is overcooked; and the pricing s too high for what it is. Menu needs a rethink.

We went for brunch on Saturday. The waitress, Lily, was great. Food was amazing. I had the quinoa bowl, which was delicious and interesting. My husband had the breakfast burrito, and he absolutely loved it. Would definitely recommend!

Brunch at BHB was terrific this morning. The star of the meal was my husband’s quinoa bowl—a perfect combination of earthy grains, perfectly cooked eggs, slight spice from Sriracha and a nice mix of veggies/greens. I had the spinach and smoked salmon Benny, which was very good, but I wish I went with something more original since the flavors popped with the quinoa dish. Our server was a bit stiff, which stood out from the otherwise warm and welcoming experience, but overall, it will be a new brunch go-to for us.

This is a wonderful restaurant/bistro in the heart of Beacon Hill. We had brunch there on June 2. There were five of us and the only thing missing was a round table, else it was perfect. Food and service was excellent. A really nice place to dine.

I've dined here a few times but only at lunch. The ambience is very nice. It is an entire glass wall for viewing the action on Charles St. The service is fine. The menu is good. We were very pleased with everything except the Fetoush salad, which wasn't good. The deviled eggs, crispy cauliflower, burger, turkey sandwich and posole were very tasty.

Wonderful pre-ballet dinner. Sophisticated, sleek and chic, The bright orange dinnerware set the tone for a trendy, tasteful, fine meal. The food was delicious and artfully presented. It was quiet enough to be able to talk yet the background din made for a sense of social spirit. Superb service with timely interventions. Try the haddock w clams. Do go!

The host staff seated my party over thirty minutes later than our reservation time. The server did not take our order for another thirty minutes after being seated. The server checked on us infrequently, and she forgot to follow through on a few requests.

Room and location as well as staff are all very good. Food was fine but not up to the modern standard of fine dining. Try No.9 Park if you want a Boston traditional style restaurant with a view and better food.

Welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable service. Well prepared and served dining options. Highly Recommend the Roast Pork Dip , the Beacon Hill Double and Roasted Cauliflower Steak depending on dining predilection. Cozy, comfortable ambiance with a nice though small bar area. My second visit and will definitely return again.

No matter the meal/time/hunger level/you name it. The Bistro is a absolute go to. Will it blow your mind culinary wise, no but, it is tasty and consistent and the service is spot on. Drinks are heavy and portions are perfect. I would strongly suggest 3 or 4 ghostpepper cocktails, they are very very good. Nevertheless, easy convenient spot in beacon hill with consistent tasty well presented food.
