North 26 Restaurant & Bar Ratings and Reviews
My Girlfriend and I Arrived Right On Time To A Friendly Valet Guy To Greet Up.We Got In To The Restaurant Its Was Beautiful....Sat Down Right Away I Review The Menu So Many Times I Knew What I Had To Try ..We Started Off With The Red And Gold Beets Salad, Prosciutto And Pear Salad, And Shrimp And Manchengo Cheese Croquettes..This Dishes Where Amazing..Then I Had The Swordfish and My Girlfriend Had The Seafood Pasta Paired With Simi Pinot Noir...Both Out Of This World...We Even Had Room For Dessert...
Being A Chef Myself And Really Enjoying The Crazy Flavors Was A Blast Of Its Own Nicely Done Chef Julia!!!
Overall An Amazing Night Will Be Coming Back..You Got Raving Fans Now!!!
The lunch combo is a great deal. It is very reasonably priced for the options available. I had lobster bisque and salmon club for $12! WHAT A STEAL!! The bread basket had amazing selection of wheat, white, and a fruity bread/rolls. YUMM! The service was quick. It was quiet and had plenty of space.
Four of us went before a Celtics game for dinner. We sat in the bar area, our waitress very attentive and knowledgeable. We asked her about a few entrees and she was honest in her opinions of what she felt was the best dish. We each had something different and everyone was very pleased with their choices. I would definitely go back.
I was in Boston for a 3 day work trip, and my husband came along. We were looking for a place for dinner that was within walking distance of our hotel, had a menu we liked, and was priced within our means. I found North 26 via Open Table and made a reservation after reading positive reviews. We were seated immediately at a booth in the back where it was quiet (the bar area was noisier). Our server, Fernando, was pleasant and knowledgeable, and he recommended some items for our entrees.
Overall, the food was excellent, nice portions, solid wine list, and great service.
My girlfriend and I enjoyed both an anniversary dinner and breakfast the next morning at this restaurant. In both instances, the food was excellent, as was the service. The prices can be a little high, but not unexpected, especially for downtown Boston. Due to it being winter, we did not get to dine outside, although I am sure it would be a pleasurable experience, especially in an atmosphere so close to Faneuil Hall.
We stayed at the Millineum Hotel and had breakfast here twice. The Eggs Benedict was delicious with the English muffin toasted perfectly. The Canadian bacon portion was a bit skimpy but the flavors were fine. I also enjoyed their corned beef hash combo and would definitely eat here again while in Boston.
We had family visiting from LA and staying in the Faneuil Hall area. Our party enjoyed sitting in the front window of the restaurant which overlooks the busy and scenic marketplace. Our table had a range of appetizers and entrees. Several had the lobster special which everyone enjoyed very much and was an exceptional value. Two members of the group enjoyed beef, one sirloin and one filet mignon-cooked impeccably and with a special sauce request which was honored. I had the halibut which buttery and beautifully prepared; with its peach plum sauce, it was quite delicious and artful in its presentation. Our waitstaff were friendly and attentive. Our evening together could not have been more perfect! This place is especially lovely around the winter holidays with the lights in the marketplace making it feel very festive. Our family cannot wait to go back to North 26!
The dinner food was good, when it finally came. The service was slow and at times inattentive. The breakfast choices were not great for someone who wanted healthy and simple food that was not exorbitant in price. $5 for a tea or a coffee is really hard to justify. Wine prices were high.
I decided to try North 26 during Dine Out Boston (formerly Restaurant Week), in the hope that it might break the trend of so-so hotel restaurants. Alas, it was not to be. My friend and I tried a couple of different appetizers, and both were pretty good, which made us hopeful. But our entrees - roasted Swordfish and a salad of Jumbo Shrimp and arugula - were unremarkable. The meal was worth what we paid, but I don't think I'll be back.
My friend and I went for the purpose of combining our birthdays with Dine Out Week. However, I ended up having the lobster special which was a great deal for $20. My only complaint is that the chowder that came with it was too salty. My friend had the Dine Out menu and loved her food. She had lobster bisque, scallops with ravioli and cobbler for dessert. The location is good, being right across from Quincy Market, yet away from the hustle and bustle. Service was excellent and I must commend the staff member who helped me walk back and forth from my scooter.
I'm a bit of a foodie and restaurant explorer. I went here for restaurant week and didn't do any advance research into reviews, just liked the menu that was presented. I would rate this a middling experience overall. As a hotel restaurant it is fine, but there are so many other options nearby that this doesn't stand out as somewhere I would go back to based on its cost compared to the quality of the food/service/experience... none of it was bad, but there are too many better options nearby.
I met friends for dinner on a wednesday night. It was very quiet inside - only a few other tables seated. The food was excellent. (Halibut, swordfish entrees) and the service was very attentive. It is a nice find for a more upscale meal, quieter to allow for conversation but steps away from Quincy Market/Fanuiel Hall - so a view of that scene. I think overall its a better value than restaurants that target tourists / families in this area.
Nice restaurant with an entertaining view of Faneuil Hall. The waitstaff was very friendly and attentive. The food was fine. The chicken dish, chowder and salads were very good. The halibut was somewhat dry, but garnish was delicious. The scallops were tasty but the ravioli was undercooked. Overall it was fine for a before concert meal, but I'm not sure we would return just for the food.
Not a busy place, which in this location speaks for itself. Better off eating at a place in Fanieul. Not great service, slow and unprofessional. Small portions but decent food. Ordered the lobster cobb salad and there was no lobster, there were two shrimp instead. Not impressed.
Another great experience! We've dined here for breakfast, lunch and dinner and North 26 has yet to disappoint! This restaurant is perfect for couples, families, groups or even flying solo! Staff will make you feel like royalty and your food is always cooked to perfection. Definitely a must try and you will be sure to make this restaurant your "go to" for Boston dining.
My friend and I went here for Dine Out Boston 2015. Honestly, we probably wouldn't go here again.
Let's start off with the good. The service was very attentive and the view is nice.
Unfortunately, the food was nowhere as good as the service. For the appetizer, I had the lobster bisque and she had the coconut shrimp. While neither dish was bad, neither was stand-out good. The shrimp was pretty generic and the bisque had an odd aftertaste.
For the entree, I had the pheasant and she had the swordfish. The swordfish dish was good if you had a bite of everything together. The pheasant had a lot of potential, but something in the dish (everything was chopped into such tiny pieces that it was hard to tell) was conflicting with the flavor of the dish. Without that ingredient, the dish actually tasted really good - the apple cider reduction, pheasant, and sweet potato gnocchi all worked really well together. But that ingredient just threw off the entire flavor of the dish.
For dessert, I got the chocolate cake and she got the apple tart. She said the tart was phenomenal and that she really enjoyed the cinnamon ice cream. I greatly enjoyed my vanilla ice cream and the chocolate cake was cooked perfectly! Unfortunately, the cake was just missing an element and came off as a bit bland.
Overall, it was a nice place to try, and the service was very good. But food-wise, I really don't think the price was worth it.
When you mark your diner as a No Show on her OpenTable reservation, and she calls on the same day to let you know, don't make excuses - honest or otherwise, and don't tell me to go to OpenTable to dispute it, just say sorry and fix it. Otherwise it just leaves a poor last impression.
Absolutely excellent place to dine. Everything and everyone was fantastic. Food was very good and prices were very reasonable and the atmosphere was also very nice. Thank you to the waitress we had for making it a very nice evening , keep that excellent sense of humor !
I was kind of disappointed, given that the menu made everything sound delicious. We arrive a little before noon and was told by the waiter/host (looks like he was both jobs) that they were still serving breakfast, so we asked to see both menus. Although the breakfast menu did look good, we decided to order a lunch combination with a cup of clam chowder and alf a lobster roll, and an order of the New Bedford Jumbo Sea Scallops. Given that there didn't seem to be many customers, and it was also a holiday, we were fine that the food would take a bit longer and the complimentary bread was still in the oven. Service was indeed very good. However, when our lunch combination arrived, the portions were a lot smaller than we expected - we described it like a happy meal portion at McDonald's. The clam chowder was a little too salty, but was decent, not the bed chowder we had though. The lobster roll had an interesting taste, not sure if it was the greens/herb they had mixed with the lobster, or there was some vinegar used in the mix. It tasted weird.
I was initially very excited about the sea scallops that was supposed to have vegetable ravioli and butternut squash. I was disappointed by the raviolis. It tasted like the filling was pumpkin, so it was not what I expected. The ravioli skin was a bit thick, so it was harder. The scallops themselves (came with 3 scallops) were indeed jumbo and were decent. At least it still had scallop taste and not bland, but it also was not anything special. For desert, we got the creme brûlée, which we really enjoyed. Definitely say it was the best part of the meal. The custard had just the right consistency and the top layer was not too thick/hard.
Although the service was very good, I don't think I would come again. Not sure if the quality and price of the food is due to it's connection with a hotel.
They were most attentive and including our 3 young children, we all had a terrific time.
Food selection, timing and quality was terrific.
We were very fortunate that, being in a Millennium Hotel (the Sunday immediately before Christmas, following the Boston Holiday Pops), we were among the only people there and the brunch/lunch was excellent.
We were the only table occupied here at lunchtime on Sunday before t Christmas. W had a nice view of people at Faneuil hall. Goid was good but nothing to trave about. It's the restaurant at the Millennium hotel. The are plenty of great restaurants in Boston. It's absolutely fine but not anything special.
My experience for brunch at North 26 was a good one. I live nearby and have often wanted to stop in because the look of the restaurant and location appealed to me. I like the décor and styling of the restaurant a lot, but the food and service were satisfactory. Everything was good, but not spectacular or note-worthy aside from the design and atmosphere.
Scenic view of Faneuil Hall, with all the tree lighting outside. Very quiet for a Thursday night. I ordered the braised pork and gnocci, and it was spectacular! No need for knife, just fork through the oh so tender meat! Gnocchi was melt in your mouth good. Waiter was super attentive.d
Wife & I were not very hungry after a large lunch. We each had two appetizers and I had a Bombay Sapphire to start. Food was cooked perfectly and service was spot on. Our waiter was energetic and knowledgeable. Sorry can't comment on main dishes but if they are anything like our appetizers you're in the right place.
