Clink - The Liberty Hotel Ratings and Reviews
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.
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 ✔️
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.
Innovated food in this rennovative jail with catchy names like The Clink, The Yard and Alibi. Stay in the old jail cells of this Liberty Hotel.
We had Dunday Brunch. Great Bloody Mary bar, pork belly fried rice not to be missed and the coffee cake was amazing. If you can't make brunch or dinner, at least come by for drinks! I would recommend leaving the little ones at home and look nice. Cool jeans, but no shorts.
My wife and I had a quick dinner with our grown son while we were in town. Having eaten at it's sister restaurant, Scampo (very good), did not know what to expect from Clink. Happily surprised! Excellent Menu...with variety. All the food was scrumptious...burrata, steak, salmon, brussel sprouts..all good! Wait staff very responsive, attentive and kitchen moved quickly to bring out meals. Atmosphere is a little sterile (tricked out in old jail cells), but warm enough and does encourage conversation.
We'd return again.
Excellent service and food. The setting is wonderful - historic, classic, and modern. My wife has multiple food allergies that make dining out difficult, but Clink handled it wonderfully and made her a great meal with no complaints and no hassle. I highly recommend Clink.
Always a pleasure to go to Clink for brunch, I believe it is one of the best brunch places in Boston. The waffle and the eggs benedicts are a must have. The Bloody Mary Bar is great. It is on the more expensive side of brunch but still, totally worth it. Bon appétit!
It was wonderful to finally see the inside of the ominous Dickensian building of my childhood. The interior had just enough touches of the original the Charles Street Jail to remind the visitor of its function long ago. Be sure to check out the ceiling of the atrium. The Clink Restaurant retained some of the cell bars with all the modern touches of large bright windows and modern dining room furniture. The service was very attentive and the staff tried to accommodate our early schedule for the theater. We were taking advantage of Restaurant week. There were some adventurous choices on the menu with simple enough fare mixed in for the less adventurous. I had the spare ribs entree which was smoky, tender and delicious. The portion of baby bok choi was skimpy but delicious. My dinner companion had the gazpacho appetizer which she said was absolutely delicious. It was beautifully presented. She also had the cod as the main course and it was a spectacular piece of cod, tender and moist. The desserts were less spectacular but adequate.
We swung by for a quick lunch today and had a terrible experience overall. That service in general was pathetic would be an understatement. We never got an app we ordered, were made to wait a long time for our s'wiches and worst of all, my wife, who happens to be vegetarian, found a piece of bacon in her side of sweet potato fries. That last one is just plain unacceptable for a restaurant in a hotel like this. This was by far the worst experience we have had at a 'Luxury Collection' property having stayed and dined at multiple ones all over the world. We are definitely not going back here which is quite a shame because we really used to like it.
Although I gave Clink some very good reviews, which were deserved, they were out of their lobster entree - on a Friday evening - in July - at 6p. Really? What kind of high-end hotel restaurant at the height of tourist season is out of lobster? I live here and work next door at the hospital and was very disappointed. Even McDonald's has lobster these days . . . Wow. This surely influenced my decision to ever dine here again, unfortunately.
I had a drink at the bar before lunch. I must say that I really soured on the place when I overheard the manager talking to one of the wait staff. "Don't EVER say that to a customer again. If you say that you're giving them a chance to say "no," and if they say "no" I make less money! I'm in the business of making money!" OK then! Glad you're not my friggin boss! Maybe you should be in the business of being honest with your customers!
We were not staying at the Liberty Hotel so of course the former jail theme was very cool. My wife ordered Eggs Florentine and one of the poached eggs was not cooked as she had asked. The waitress was quick to get a replacement on the table that was. Very good service. Nice space. We will be back for brunch in the future.
Overall a disappointing experience. Had looked up decent reviews on line before making reservations. Restaurant was nearly empty when we sat down at 8:30PM on a Saturday evening. That should have been a tip off. Food was fair at best. Based on pricing, expected a higher level of cuisine. Will say our server was first rate. Faux candles on the tables? Come on!
Wouldn't recommend it.
