Wonderful dinner with a friend. Perfect weather for eating outside. Our salads and drinks, perfect. Thank you!
My favorite go to restaurant in S End. I do live close by and it’s convenient but I’m blessed. The food is comfort food with amazing flavor. Unique items without being weird. Plates are perfect size. Not too big nor small. Easy to share but not too much for one either. Not over priced. Casual but classy comfortable but not lazy atmosphere. Waitstaff are pleasant. I never feel like I had to wait long for food or service
Great food and drinks, nice outdoor and indoor seating. Definitely worth it- the Mac n cheese is amazing!!
I am gluten free and they were great about telling me what my options were
We came for brunch and it was really not good. The service was probably some of the worst I have ever received. The gal working acted extremely inconvenienced that we even came.
It was very nice, servers are super attentive and they were super helpful with my two little ones. I invited some friends that were new to this place and they loved it.
Food was wonderful, staff was very accommodating to special requests, gave us a choice of tables. Great beer section.
Can’t wait to go back. Food was exceptional. Where this place really shined was service. My husband and I eat out frequently and haven’t had this type of service in a very long time.
Service was great!
I always enjoy Five Horses Tavern in the South End. We were easily able to get outdoor seating, but was nicely spaced out, quiet street, easy to talk and the beer selection is back to their usual standards. Great place and great service.
This is one of our favorite Boston restaurants. Delicious food and great vibe. Especially love the patio seating. Highly recommend.
Our food and drinks were delicious. They may have been short-staffed, as some of our order was forgotten and it took a bit longer than usual to receive our drinks. (We had different servers throughout the meal as well). All in all, a nice meal and atmosphere.
The food was delicious and we got seated very quickly
Always great service and excellent food. Happy to hear Dylan, Beth and team are opening in Brookline.
With a new air filtration system we can feel comfortable and protected from COVID.
Food was fine, service was fine, cheesecake was great.
Gen Z servers have attitude
Once again in love with this place and our experience. We came to Boston today just to go here for brunch and it’s our favorite place to go. Everyone is so lovely, food is absolutely amazing, overall a 10/10. Cannot wait to go back.
We brought our dog and sat on the patio. The beer selection was excellent, as was the food.
It was a great dining experience. Nice outdoor seating area and everyone was very friendly. Food was great!
Food and drinks were delicious! We had great service. Our server was very understanding and accommodating for food allergies. Will definitely be coming back!
Good service and good food. No option to sit outdoors but otherwise a good experience
The brunch quesadilla was very good, also tried the mimosa flight which was unique and tasty.
Brunch was delicious everyone really enjoyed their food. Their service was incredibly slow and they charge a 4% covid recovery fee. Also don’t bother with the mimosas, the flight was not good and their mimosas regular and flight had essentially no champagne.
Very pleasant staff. good service and good food. I always enjoy it.
Everything was excellent. Reservation on time, great table, great food and the service was top notch-they really worked as a team! Will definitely go back!
The staff and the food was incredible. I have been there a few times and I’m never disappointed.
I love Five Horses Tavern! If you’re in the South End it’s the perfect neighborhood spot to grab drinks with friends, go on a first date, or anything else really. The cocktails are fun and they have a large selection of beer as well (pink ghost is my favorite cocktail, check it out if you like tequila) and the food choices are unique and delicious (the skillet cornbread unreal!).
Great service, wonderful food and a lot of drink options. We sat in the bar so it was a bit loud, but that’s to be expected. Would definitely come again!
My family if five are dinners here. Everything we had was amazing. The cornbread is sweet with honey butter and the pretzel is more of a two people serving. We had the tacos. Every kind was really good. There’s heat in almost every one. The service was stellar. We were t rushed at all. Really overall a great meal. Highly recommend.
Excellent place for Brunch and such a friendly staff
Great creative take on traditional Southern and Mexican brunch items like huevos rancheros and chillechiles.
Nice food, good service, but a bit noisy. It is hard to hear others
Wonderful Brunch Outside with fast and friendly service !
Been many, many times. And we’ll be back many more…
Very pleasant service and I appreciated not feeling rushed. Not many gluten free options though…
Great food and Quality food selection
Everything was delicious, as always! The specials also added some new and interesting choices for dinner. Can not recommend the Shrimp Tacos enough!
Great spot in the South End! The food is excellent, the beer list is out of this world, and the service is always amazing. Highly recommend.
This was out first time out at a restaurant in a long time and five horses didn’t disappoint. The service was excellent, food was great and the beer selection is always exceptional.
