    The overall experience was ok. The bruschetta was just meh, neither good nor bad. The fried squid appetizer was very good & not overcooked. I had the ragu with parpadelle & I would not recommend it. The sauce was very acidic and unpleasant, unfortunately. The espresso martini was very good & not one of those milky ones. So I wouldn't do dinner here again but would come for just drinks with friends.

    The bar and "lounge" were loud and packed. It was so loud that I had to yell across the table in the half empty, and strangely laid out, dinning room. The food was mediocre, nothing to write home about. And other than the seafood sampler I felt it was a little over priced. The old fashioned was served with bucket ice rather than a large single cube. It seems nitpicky but if you are going to the trouble of serving it under a cloche with smoke, maybe don't drown it with ice? The cocktails were very reasonably priced.

    It was dark and we had to use our cell phones to read the menu. I did not receive French fries that were included in the meal. The beef ragu was noodles and meat sauce. The haddock was good. Salads were brought out at the same time as the meal. Service was adequate. We had to keep calling her over for empty glasses and condiments. My boyfriend and I were disappointed because the website looked so good. Won’t be back.

    After reading, so many good reviews, I was excited to go here. The interior has a lot of potential… Sadly, the food and drink did not live up to any of the online reviews. The food was marginal, at best. My husband ordered two things on the menu, octopus and green beans. They looked good from the description and they showed up FRIED. No mention of that on the menu in the description. We both ended up getting salads, which were drowned in dressing and too sweet. My drink barely had any alcohol in it and we quickly left. Do not waste time or money here.

    Cocktails were decent, ambience and vibe excellent and the service was great! The food was average though - truffle parm fries lacked salt, the buffalo cauliflower was very sour and the basic margarita flatbread had barely any sign of fresh basil.

    It was our first visit and everything was fantastic, the staff and service was excellent. The menu was exactly what we were looking for.. We started with the cleanest fresh oysters and grilled cauliflower. Then had a flat bread pizza and the pork chop which was perfectly cooked. Will definitely be back, next time will probably be for the brunch. We had a bottle of Liberty School Cabernet which is one of our all time favors cabernets at a great price do e ordered a second 🤭🍷🍷

    Food was really good! We went to the bar in the back after which was also a really cool vibe-not really much of a speakeasy, but very fun regardless! I felt like service was a tad bit slow, but it was a really nice night out!

The food was absolutely delicious as always, and the cocktail was ridiculously good. Carrie Nation is my favorite restaurant in Boston. I will go nowhere else besides here.

    We both enjoyed the wild rice bowl with grilled salmon, roasted beets, arugula, grape tomatoes and chick peas. Excellent value and well prepared. The cocktails were ample and expertly done. Eddie, the bartender, is yet another reason to try Carrie Nation: he was friendly, attentive and great to talk with.

    Hostess and greeters were awesome! So energetic and friendly! One had an awesome accent and just moved to Boston. So bubbly and fun! (Speakeasy)Drinks were okay, bar staff was very unfriendly and seemed annoyed by everything. Unsure if it was the heat or just the atmosphere but most likely won’t be returning. Reviews were awesome and we read some before going. We found CN in an article of one of the bars you HAVE to visit when in Boston. Was a total disappointment. Left early and found a different bar.

    Unique atmosphere, great accommodating and attentive staff. Only bad thing was their avocado BLT, called BALT. The bacon was shoe-leather tough and could not be chewed. Otherwise, a good experience. A little ridiculous that they require a credit card to make a reservation, especially for lunch - but must be they've been burned by cancellation reservations often.

    My group and I visited Carrie Nation for a 21st birthday party with high hopes, but we were disappointed :(. Our server was rushed, the drinks were weak, and the atmosphere was quiet and lacking on a Friday night. The brussel sprout appetizer came out pretty close to raw, and I do not like to send food back but they were too firm to eat. The server was kind and brought back another but they were still way undercooked which was a bummer. My group and I weren’t sure if it was just an off night, but for the money we payed, we just felt the experience was extremely underwhelming unfortunately.

    Except for some beautiful period lighting the space is all dark wood and rather depressing. The food was unexceptional. My steak was on the small side but cooked as requested. Asked the waiter if I could substitute “hand cut fries” for “shoestring fries” (as described on the menu) and he said they were the same. What? The waiter seemed rushed, nervous, inexperienced and lacking any patience or friendliness. Hostess very pleasant.
