Italian | Downtown Crossing, Boston

The food was good and service was good, but we sat downstairs and asked the hostess if we could sit upstairs and she said it was full. We walked upstairs a few times and every time there were many open tables and then finally when we were leaving we asked the hostess why she told us that it was full when clearly there were many open tables, she replied that they were reserved for reservations. But WE were a reservation too. Not very happy about this. More

Ate here for brunch with our two little ones. The staff was great - brought coloring and soppy cups. Food was really tasty - I had the French toast, my husband the hash, and our sons split the classic. We were in our own little section which made it a nice and relaxing breakfast. Attached to hotel for easy access. More

Stoddard’s was awesome! I loved the lobster bisque, along with my bratwurst sub, fries, and onion rings. The beers were great, too. While they have a lot of beers that I wasn’t familiar with, the waitress let me try a few. Great place! More

Fantastic burgers and Mac an cheese. I’m sure everything else is good too. Great beer selection. They play good music at a decent volume, not a quiet place but that’s their style and my coworkers and I love it. We have a lot of contractors from out of the country and we always bring them here.
