My experience is exceptional every time! The service is superior and the food is amazing!

I feel like I should start in the ocean.. because all I can say is salt salt salt.

The oysters were basically sitting in ocean water..

The steak tasted like ocean water..

My date's lamb had so much decorative junk on it that added more and more you guessed it... SALT..

Customer service was great.. Even acknowledged that the chef is ruining quality ingredients with far too much salt. Brought me a new steak which was awesome.. BUT I had a full view of the kitchen and it was like watching Gordon Ramsey screaming that the customer was wrong..(Something Gr wouldn't do unless I was wrong..) I should have made a better wagyu beef ribeye at home for a fraction of the cost.. or gone elsewhere for a better meal for half price.

Ambiance is really cool.. Customer Service is great.


The food kinda sucks...

A couple of things not up to par, The area around the tables are quite heavy with dust.
The dust was actually blowing onto my food. (tables with the jail bars are filthy dusty)
The windows are dirty. The floor had some food around the tables. If the just keep it clean i would have given them 4.5 stars.Food was excellent!

Food was disappointing, server was ill informed. We asked about the monkfish osso bucco and he said it was osso bucco and fish........well, it was a piece of fish with the bone in (hence the osso bucco reference) but that was pretty much the only resemblance to osso bucco. It came with roasted seasonal vegetables which were a beet the size of my fingernail, and a few bits of something else. Mostly it was accompanied with overly salted tiny pasta -- not good. We also got the lamb shank which was undercooked and therefore not tender, though it was a generous portion. The duck roulade was very nice, though it was incomprehensibly slow to arrive. The décor is cool, but otherwise it was pretty much of a dud experience.

We were disappointed in the service our waiter was not attentive I don’t mind paying high prices for food but when your server is literally absent for 20 minutes was very frustrating the manager came over and apologized he made up for it in the end however I was really surprised that that happened in the first place

We love having our first day of the New Year brunch at Clink mostly for their lavish Bloody Mary Buffet.
Overall, It is a beautiful hotel, the brunch menu is great. If you’re very hungry, try their burger.

It was Christmas Day so understandably might not be as good as normal, but the service was slow, the options few and by 7:15 they were already out of the goose which is what we wanted. My dish and my companion’s (the chicken) was overly salted. Truly, an overall very underwhelming experience and not worth the money. Will never go there again.

We stayed at our favorite hotel The Liberty on Christmas night and had a fabulous meal at The Clink! I had the blackened sea bass and my husband had the butter poached lobster which both were outstanding. Great food, great atmosphere and great service! Can’t wait to go back!

This was our annual family outing parents + 2 adult children in Boston from Denver, CO. We are always looking for a unique and or historic Boston restaurant for this occasion. The fact that the hotel is carved from the Charles Street jail exactly fit our criteria. The valets were helpful since one in our party was disabled. The Clink was unique with its former cell doors still in tact. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu, answered our questions, made recommendations and was overall pleasant and helpful. We were not rushed and our drinks and all courses were timed perfectly. Would definitely recommend and return.

Server was not super attentive. One order was for the poached lobster. Lobster Tail was not clean and eggs still attached to it! For $42 the tail should have been cleaned! Bar outside of Clink served wine in soap stained glasses. For such a luxury hotel, very disappointing. We will not return

The ambiance is very interesting, being a converted jail. The bricks lend a warm vibe.
Our waiter was pleasant and worked hard to accommodate my vegan diet. My only complaint (other than noise level)was the tomato soup arrived scalding hot. I couldn’t even begin to eat it for about 30 minutes.

Awesome Build your own Bloody Mary arrangement with a unique array of brunch options. Not to forget, the service was incredible as well.

Great service. Food was amazing....highly suggest the yellow tail sashimi with watermelon and peanuts as a starter. Wonderful wine selection- we got a well priced and delicious cab-sauv , and our cocktails were well done. My boyfriend drank the Blackstone (a creative take on a Manhattan)...he was quite pleased.
Espresso gelato dessert with pizzelle and whipped cream ✔️

The food and service is always very good. Salmon, chicken, steak entrees are all excellent. Great historic lobby bar for pre-dinner drink. Short walk to Boston Garden.

Homemade pastas (black pasta with shrimp) were excellent and striploin was perfectly prepared. Start with the charcuterie, and small but terrific wine selection sure to please. As hotel guests, we also had brunch in Clink on Saturday and it, too, was first rate. Service excellent - just the right balance of attentive without being intrusive.

$5 for an unsweetened ice tea was a bit extreme I thought, but uniqueness of location and quality of food will bring me back again.

Clink is consistently excellent, dating back to at least 2013. The hotel (The Liberty) is nice, although the rooms are average and the front desk service is somewhat lacking. Clink, however, never disappoints. The food is terrific, as is the service.

Beet salad had too few beets and too many greens.
Noise from music and kitchen were somewhat distracting. Music could have been at a lower volume and more conducive to meal time rather than a dance hall.
