Worst food I've ever had in Boston. I'm embarrassed that I took my friends here.

Went out for dinner to celebrate our friends engagement. So glad we came here! Everyone was friendly, from the host to our waitress. I had the salmon and it was delicious. My 3 friends also loved their dishes. I definitely want to come back with my husband and enjoy the speakeasy a little more.

Birthday dinner was great! The back speakeasy was closed for a private event though so that was a bunmer

Everyone in my party loved Carrie Nation! We were running late for our reservation so I called and was told it was not a problem at all! Just get there when we could and they would have a table waiting for us. Took all the stress away! We sat in the bar area at a high top and were very comfortable. It's really a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. We had a wonderful waitress, everyone loved the food and drinks, and the atmosphere was conducive to good conversation! Good value, good service, good food, good atmosphere - what more could you ask for?!

I have already recommended Carrie Nation to family, friends and coworkers. The service was great and cheerful, the server even laughed at my husband’s Dad jokes! 😂 The food was fresh and yummy. Order the trio of cookies for desert!

I love Carrie Nation. The food and service are consistently good, it’s reasonably priced and a fun atmosphere. We were there for lunch this time and had salads. I added salmon to mine and it was delicious and a generous portion.

I was on a date and was seated near the noisy bar which I was disappointed about. I also ordered a burger and specifically asked for carmalized onions and they gave me raw onions. At that point I was too starving to send it back.

The venue is nice, service was great, the food was good, some really good like the steaks, some average like the tacos.

They have live music, I wish we had time to stay, but we didn’t.

Cocktail menu was limited, unimaginative and too sweet. Food and service were mediocre. Would not go back.

We found much better cocktails around the corner at 21st Amendment! It’s not fancy but the drinks and service were excellent!

The inside of this place is really kool. Especially the speakeasy bar. The staff are all so nice but the food was not good. I had pan seared tuna and my husband had the sirloin steak both were tasteless. Maybe they are just known for bar food. You should def go and check it out for drinks but I would eat before.

Great service, really great food, cool space. A rather limited menu for Pescatarians - and very limited for vegetarians. But seriously delicious and the service was outstanding.

Really loved this place. The drinks were a little on the weak side, but the food was fantastic. Loved the ambiance. It was quiet when I was there, but it was a Wednesday night so not even half the tables were filled. Not sure about noise level when they are busy. Would highly recommend.

Finishing our vacation and was looking forward to this dinner due to the website advertising a speakeasy and jazz. We spent time having dinner then moved to the soeakeasy. Ariana Grande and JayZ is all we heard during dinner and at the soeakeasy. The food was fine and as was the service but if you’re looking for what’s advertised on the website with regards to atmosphere, note it’s not as advertised.

We were surprised at how quiet it was for a Saturday night but we had an early reservation (6:30). We were in Boston for a mini-vacation and were expecting crowds like we had seen in the North End and by the water. We had a lovely table with no one around. The waitress was attentive and helpful. The food was delicious and very well priced. We would definitely go back.

We hit this hot spot at just the right time: 5:30 on July 3, just before the Boston Pops concert on the Esplanade. It was quiet enough to have easy conversation, our service provider, Andrew was very attentive and relaxed, and everyone in our party of four found drinks and dishes to make us very happy! I love Carrie Nation any time of the week.
