Fantastic meal and fantastic service. We had a great meal and Dillon our server was exceptional. Would recommend for any dining experience. It is not cheap but the meal was well worth it and the experience was terrific. More

Ink Block is a great new area that is developing quickly. Bar Mezzana is in the heart of the block and is a great place to gather with friends and family. The cucumber salad was excellent and the Atlantic char was to die for. The service was superb and Chianti Classico on the wine list was a pretty good value. Would highly recommend Bar Mezzana and will definitely return. More

Not surprisingly, B&G has oysters. Lots of them. All of which we tried. All of which were very fresh and delicious. From raw bar to fried, it all was top-notch. As were the other items we sampled. And the service was pitch-perfect. The atmosphere/ambiance are a bit downscale, but comfortable. I'd return in a heartbeat. More

Myers + Chang never disappoints. It seems to fit every occasion; I have been here for date nights, a dinner with a vegan friend, and a girl's night where some of the diners were pregnant and couldn't enjoy the cocktails or wine. In all cases, there was something creative and delicious for everyone. Servers and hosts are very professional. The restaurant is always busy and I have always been seated on time and never felt rushed to leave. This place is great - I don't go often enough. More

Really enjoyed the ramped up thai-style food: great range of flavors and options for a big party that included vegetarians and carnivores. The special desert (a loaf of sweet bread filled with coconut ice cream and topped with fruit) was super good. My husband will be craving the Dragon Noodles for quite a while. More

Our dinner was amazing! From the kale salad to the octopus appetizer(we had never had octopus), and then our entrees, everything was delicious and perfectly prepared. We had an excellent server and it was relatively quiet. Parking was easy in the lot nearby and was complementary from Cinquecento. We would definitely return. More

Even if you're not a big red meat eater, there's plenty to choose from. Wonderful selection of wines; good selection of main meals. While I rarely order chicken when dining out (because I eat so much of it otherwise), the chicken here is really incredible and worth a try. Lively, fun atmosphere whether at the bar or at a table.

We were celebrating a birthday so we all went for brunch. The food and drinks were very good but service was slow and chaotic. Our server was all smiles but we noticed she was socializing with some people at the bar while our drinks sat on a tray for a long time. We had to ask the bus person to go for our drink order. The good thing is the food arrived all at once and no one had to wait. But then, we got our coffee and asked for milk, it took another 10 minutes and another call to the bus person to get the milk. Please focus on your clients. Cute guys at the bar are not on your tables. More

My bf and I heard the house singers play the back end of their set on the Weds night. We were visiting from London. They mentioned playing the next night at Lions Tail which was our final night. It was a really cool bar/ restaurant. We had a lovely meal, Doris and the band were the real highlight playing a great variety of songs. I would highly recommend visiting lions tail as it had a really cool relaxed vibe. It's a bit out of the centre of Boston.....but worth the visit esp if yo go on Thurs eve. More

Fantastic new addition to the South End. Genuine, cool, not trying hard to be something else, and totally different than everything else on offer in the area. Delicious food, great decor, nice atmosphere, very reasonable, and the best service we had in a very long time! Even better than the really upscale expensive restaurants. STEPHANIE was the best! Makes you feel comfortable, shares her opinion helping you choose the best stuff, and super attentive without being in your business. Will be back and bring my friends as long as I'm in Stephanie's section. Two thumbs up! More
