Was my first time eating at Flemings. Went with 4 other adults. Sat at a round table wich was perfect for conversation. Our waiter Christopher was superb. Some of the adults didn't speak fluent English and Christopher was extremely patient with them. We all enjoyed our meals. We were allowed to talk and didn't feell rushed. More

The corn dip was amazing, as were the wings (which had a unique spice blend that included cinnamon)! We also had a bacon cheeseburger, which was delicious as well. The bacon was a step above what you normally get on a burger, a very nice touch. The waiter we had was also super professional and helpful. More

American | South Boston, Boston

Came here with my girls' part of our girls' weekend. They have a 90s hip hop brunch every 1st Sunday of the month and found that to be a bit disappointing as it was just 90s tunes playing with no other themes adding to it (like hiphop themed drinks/food, outfits etc.). If they do ramp that up it would definitely be another star!. Other than that the service was great, albeit our food did take some time to come out, BUT when it did WOW WOW WOW so good! My Good Morning Pizza was so big that I had to take some with me even AFTER I shared with BOTH of my girls (they kindly provided a plastic bag for me to make a portable cooler- to keep it refrigerated until I got to a fridge- with the ice from the ice bucket that held our champagne for our mimosas, which were great too!) . The food I sampled off their plates, the S'mores French Toast and the Chicken and Waffle Sandwich were also heavenly! And the bill was not bad at all for ordering our food plus splitting a table mimosa (which came out to be about 2 mimosas per person for 3 people) - a little less than $30 per person. Overall if you could just be a little patient for the food , it's a great place to come and eat and drink while bopping to some 90s hiphop jams :) More

Farm-to-table | Nantucket, Cape Cod and the Islands

This is a great place for sharing plates, in fact it’s encouraged but not required! We started with a stuffed artichoke which was tender and flavorful. Then moved onto the the cauliflower which is perfectly cooked and spiced in a most unusual way! For our larger plate we chose duck confit salad with a perfectly poached egg, another great combination! This is fast becoming one of my favorite places on Nantucket, healthy, creative and delicious fare! You must try it! More

Discover Boston

Beantown, dubbed for the baked beans that put the city on the map, is about far more than beans these days. Local restaurants channel the region’s farm-to-table traditions and celebrate the iconic seafood of New England’s coast—no trip to the region is complete without a proper lobster (pronounced “lob-stah,” steamed and served with butter and corn on-the-cob), freshly shucked oysters, fried clams—you name it. Hometown to a handful of internationally influential female restaurateurs and the inimitable legacy of Julia Child, who called Cambridge home, Boston will always be a city where liberal sensibilities meet a global approach, in politics and on the plate.
