We had the best experience at Fleming’s It was our Anniversary and they were so accommodating from the managers to the servers. We couldn’t have been more pleased. The steaks were one of best we’ve ever had and the chipotle Mac and cheese was great also. All I can say is thank you for making our Anniversary so special. More

Small intimate spot with a huge menu and lots of awesome specials. No cocktails, just beer and large wine list. Service and food were just spectacular. You must try the artichoke goat cheese appetizer, better than you can imagine. The tuna & lobster special was cooked and seasoned to perfection. Top notch bolognese with a claim to be the best bolognese in Boston. Great service. We went before a Celtics game and a reasonable walk to TD garden. More

Steakhouse | Seaport, Boston

As always, the food was amazing and the ambiance just right. I was a bit put off by our server's brusqueness at the start of our ordering. He literally dropped a menu onto the table in front of me (I had my hand up to take it) then flipped it over to show me where the cocktails and wines were listed. I was insulted as well as my dinner companions. He served one incorrect side, and tried to insist that something else was ordered. He wasn't convinced when a few of us politely informed him that was not the case. Thankfully, he switched the charge on our bill to the item we'd asked for. With those exceptional moments out of the way Danny did provide much better service going forward. Checking in with everyone as we finished our dinner, I can report that everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Your coffee/cocoa rubbed steak was a huge hit. More

Came here with my girls' part of our girls' weekend. They have a 90s hip hop brunch every 1st Sunday of the month and found that to be a bit disappointing as it was just 90s tunes playing with no other themes adding to it (like hiphop themed drinks/food, outfits etc.). If they do ramp that up it would definitely be another star!. Other than that the service was great, albeit our food did take some time to come out, BUT when it did WOW WOW WOW so good! My Good Morning Pizza was so big that I had to take some with me even AFTER I shared with BOTH of my girls (they kindly provided a plastic bag for me to make a portable cooler- to keep it refrigerated until I got to a fridge- with the ice from the ice bucket that held our champagne for our mimosas, which were great too!) . The food I sampled off their plates, the S'mores French Toast and the Chicken and Waffle Sandwich were also heavenly! And the bill was not bad at all for ordering our food plus splitting a table mimosa (which came out to be about 2 mimosas per person for 3 people) - a little less than $30 per person. Overall if you could just be a little patient for the food , it's a great place to come and eat and drink while bopping to some 90s hiphop jams :) More

The Sinatra performance by Rich DiMare was amazing. He has a great voice and an amazing stage presence with the help of the band. Our server Jules was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable about the menu, offered suggestions, and literally bent over backwards to not disturb the show. An enjoyable night for everyone. More
