First time at Boiler Room for a couple seasoned foodies. Loved everything about the place. Had a table above the kitchen and it felt like watching an old school cooking show. Only knock was the duck was a little tough but the waitress made up for it with a dessert. Will definitely but back soon.

Unbelievably delicious. One of our all time favorite dinners we have ever eaten. Their meats are so amazing and aged in-house. Their flavor combinations were mind blowing. I loved the vibe, it was a great place for date night or bringing out of towners, your boss, your best friends.
Ambiance was perfect. Chelsea was great. Don’t skip dessert!!!

Even the beer selection was unique and thoughtful. You will have a great time.

Great restaurant. Only draw back was seating, felt as if since I am a new opentable member I received a table next to the door and the cold breeze after specifically asking to have a table away from the door. Outside of that the restaurant's quality and service is top notch. I appreciate the chef driven menu and fluid item rotation.

We always have an amazing experience when we dine at the Boiler Room. Service is wonderful! The wine selection is great and the food is so creative! We had to try all three of the desserts this time because we couldn’t just pick two. Love coming here!

Showed up for a 9:00 reservation- and they said their kitchen had just closed. Whaaat? Why would you accept a 9:00 reservation then?
Was looking forward to trying here, sad they didn’t accommodate.

Waitress was very unhappy person. Seats were old and falling apart (felt I was almost squatting when eating). The music was horribly loud but thank god they turned it down when I asked. Ended up leaving without entrees bc was very disappointed by treatment of waitstaff.

Amazing dinner. We were a party of four and tried different cocktails, appetizers and mains. Fantastic cocktails. Loved the pasta and sausage appetizer. The pasta was light and flavorful. The sausage wasn’t too salty and great base items that complimented the sausage. Tried the fish steak beef cheeks and pork chop. All great. I’d go back for the pork chops! Too full for dessert but they looked very good.

We spent our 29th Anniversary at the Boiler Room and can't say enough good things. From the complimentary glass of champagne, to the delicious and abundant charcuterie appetizer and the wonderful service. The night started out perfect. We had the salmon plate and the Wagyu Sirloin as well. Perfectly executed cocktails made for a wonderful special evening. Bravo Boiler Room.

OH MY ! Exceeded my expectations. Would definitely recommend, food/ drinks were amazing & service was exceptional. We were lucky to be served by Chelsea who happened to also be the pastry chef! She was so friendly and surprised us with macaroons that were out of this world. Perfect way to end a great romantic date night.

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we were taken care of . Our wait staff of three different gals were all knowledgeable and very helpful . Appetizer of ravioli was perfect. Wine, delicious. Entree of a new fish for-me was Opah which was delicate and delicious. The plates were beautiful and my spouse had a delicious pork dinner that he loved. Next came a cup of really good espresso and two delectable desserts served to us by the dessert chef. Her pride in her work was warranted as each was delicious. We were celebrating our anniversary and we will be going back again for the next special event. If you are looking for something special.... this is the place!
