    Great Irish pub with excellent food. Friendly servers and for a busy little spot in the Financial District, they do a great job. These days with short staffing we can’t expect the service we used to get, but this pub did great and the food was hot, delicious and as described on the menu.

    One of our favorite places - great meal as always. Emmet's can be loud, especially with live music and a crowd shouting to talk to one another. However, we made our reservation after the live music ended and the crown had left, only to have to try and talk to one another over the very loud sound system music. Our request to tone it down was not effective.

    Our first time there, year ago, was earlier in the day. The entire time they played traditional Irish music (to our delight). This time, it was loud Spin Doctors and Soul Asylum. Major bummer. Just another bar, unfortunately.

    Visiting Boston for the weekend and this came recommended. Great curb appeal! Nice Irish pub ambiance inside. Very loud music - hard to even hear our server. Menu presented great. Ordered the Irish Potato Skins for appetizer, an Irish whiskey, Irish beer. Ordered Taste of Ireland - fantastic - and a Rueben - mediocre, corned beef sliced way too think but tasted good, almost no Russian dressing. Server was attentive until our food came and then POOF! Needed Russian dressing for our Rueben but she was no where to be found and she forgot our second round of beverages ordered. Bartender stepped in - we were at a high top adjoining the bar. No one really cared if we were there the rest of our visit. Oh so sad what is happening in hospitality…great food but no one to assist well out front.

    One or our favorites. However the crowd at the bar was so loud, that it was impossible to carry on a conversation at our table when we sat down for our 5:30 reservation. Things quieted down somewhat after 6:30.

    The fish and chips I had here a year ago was “the best fish and chips I’ve ever had in my life.” So I came back. And while I didn’t expect it to live up to the “BEST OVER OMG” memory, it was definitely not the same. IT WAS STILL VERY GOOD! But it lacked whatever flavor and dark golden brown crispness that put last year’s over the top. The service was attentive. The atmosphere is great. The collage of photos on the walls leading down to the rest rooms is stunning. Seriously, you could get lost in them if people didn’t need to use the stairs all the time. Do I plan to come back next time I’m in Boston? Hell yes. And by all means, order the side garden salad even if you have to take it home. Delicious!

    We love coming to Emmets Pub, but last night, during the heat wave, the restaurant was just too hot!! My husband and I were sweating just sitting at our table. Other than that, the food is great (fish and chips are awesome!) and the service also good.

    Later reservation at 9:45. We were seated next to the front window, which would have been really nice except for the bar-goers outside smoking and all the smoke coming in the window. We asked them to shut the window, which unfortunately made it a little hot, but it was fine. Food was good - standard bar food. Service was a little slow, but the servers were ready nice. Overall good experience.

    It was too much fun! Great room of dark walls and comfortable table and chairs. Very pleasant hostess and server; server did clear plates before we were done and had to be asked for them back. Ample cocktails served cold and dry. First rate Caesar salad with delicious anchovy taste. Decent turkey burger; fries not very crispy, but OK. Good price point. Definitely a wonderful place before a Celtics game, as was the case for us. Will be back.

    We really enjoyed our dining experience at Emmet’s. We arrived a half hour early and the waitress gave us a table. They had live Irish music which was wonderful. The food was excellent. The 3 combo shepherd pie, beef stew and chicken pot pie entree was excellent. The steak tip dinner was very good with a generous portion of mashed potato and vegetables. The waitress gave us very good service. I’d highly suggest trying Emmet’s and our Open Table reservation helped us get in quickly.

    Service was ok. Server didn’t write things down and several orders were incorrect (regular coffee instead of decaf, wrong omelette, didn’t acknowledge request for milk). Server did offer to redo omelette. My eggs Benedict were cold. Irish stew was good. Ambiance was typical Irish pub, we had a great seat by the window.

    Although there were empty table all in the front with more room, we were seated in the back by a group standing alongside the bar. Knowing this is a bar, we can that but it was weird to be squished in a space when more space was available. The food was ok. The drinks were good but the whole meal was pricy for the quality of it all.

    Nice little restaurant/pub near the Orpheum Theater. There was a slight mix up with the toppings for my burger but it was quickly rectified. Food was good; going to try the Shepard’s Pie next time.
