Easter brunch meal with family visiting from out of state. Waitress made for unenjoyable meal - was slow to welcome and gather drink orders, then spilled coffee on table with each and every pour including refills. Happened so frequently we just expected the table to get wet. Took order and had to return 2x to write it down accurately and nobody had a special order of modification to meal. Had to ask hostess for condiments due to waitress delay between checking on table. Bill was incorrect for all appetizer orders and we were stuck waiting an extra 10 minutes after attempting to close out and leave restaurant.

Food was likely the saving grace for the meal, no complaints here, chef was on point with main dishes.

The service was great, the appertizers and dessert were good, however the main course was below average (I had tuna). The topping sauce is too sweet and the tuna is bland.

We were late getting in from Logan and went here for a late dinner. The appetizers were delicious but very small portions. The pizza flatbread was awesome as was the wine. The waiter was excellent as well. The best part.. try the BOSTON CREME PIE..

Food is good but definitely overpriced for what it is; i.e. the scallop appetizer came with two small scallops for $15 and it was pretty mediocre overall unfortunately. As for service, very nice staff, but quite slow and inattentive for such a small restaurant. Our dinner for 6 lasted almost 3 hrs.

A mouse was scampering close to our table before our food arrived! Manager only willing to comp my glass of red wine and my daughter's tea. Such a sad situation because I traveled to Boston to be with m college aged daughter for Thanksgiving. But, the waitress was nice and I think felt bad because of the lack of compensation.

We celebrated my wife’s milestone birthday. We used to frequent Seasons and had some doubts about the new restaurant but we were pleasantly surprised! Kudos to a great new dining experience! We will definitely be back on our next trip to Boston, and we will likely stay at the Bostonian as well.

Lighting made it challenging to see the menu as there were no lights above our table; and I usually like it dark, but I do like to be able to see. Service was poor initially, but they were kind enough to comp our first round of drinks due to the delay. Food was eclectic and pretty good for a hotel restaurant. Cocktails were very good. Music could have added to the ambiance. Server was difficult to understand due to language barrier, but was nice. Overall I would give the experience a 7.5 out of 10.

We had a great time at North 26. It is right outside the hustle and bustle of Quincy Market. There was good people watching as well as the street performers. The wait staff was some of the best we have had! My child was being a huge pain and they accommodated her by making her pancakes at lunch. They had a great lobster special running for $20 you could get a lobster,chowder, corn and potatoes. Most of the restaurant was enjoying that. Most of us had the two for $12 lunch special. The salads and sandwiches were great. The two for $12 also came with spicy chips and a pickle. There was more than enough food. The lobster and shrimp cob looked amazing! Then bread basket was also great!! We loved the little bottles of condiments as well, they are so cute! It was another great Open Table find!

The waiter paid more attention to his loyal customers, sitting at the next table, than us, even they came after we placed the orders. They were given bread while we got nothing until the waiter saw me starring at him, then he realized what happened and told the assistant to give us bread. The loyal customers happened to order the same as us and they got the food first! I don't mind the waiter served the loyal customers better. However, he should still serve other customers according to standard. Food was good.

We tried the restaurant because of Dine Out Boston.

We were not greeted with a basic hello. We asked to sit outside, you'd think we asked for the moon on a silver platter. Was never asked if we wanted a drink. Our water glass was filled once. Our app. plates were never cleared before our main course. No one even asked if we had everything we needed or things were okay. And it appeared there was only a couple of other tables.

And we over heard the manager at an adjoining table take no responsibility for anything concerns. This party was told the Dine Out menu had sold out (at 12:30!!) and was looking for a resolution, which I do think they got.

Food was pretty good, but not worth the poor service, which certainly didn't make us feel like a welcomed guest, at all.

I went with a friend for Dine-Out Boston. North 26 has one of the best menus in my opinion. The grilled spicy shrimp skewer appetizer with mango and cucumber was excellent. Our waiter was very attentive.

Very few restaurants were open for breakfast on the day before the 4th of July. We happened to find this place and checked the menu for appropriate food choices and we're pleased to see it should suit our diverse group. Upon arrival we were asked to wait just five minutes which was fine as we were a bit early. They made up a nice round table. Excellent coffee and other beverages were offered. Gluten free bread was on the menu. The food choices were very appealing. The food itself was excellent and served hot. Everything was very fresh. Service was appropriate.

Sign out front "dollar oysters 4 to 6 pm"... Checked into hotel where they even reminded us about the restaurants oyster special so we actually changed our reservation we had elsewhere just to eat here since my wife loves oysters and we have never seen dollar oysters.. Guess what? Arrived just after 5 and aside from only ONE other table being in the entire place, they did not have oysters today.. Service was poor and nonexistent and i ordered a smoked salmon appetizer and received a smoked salmon club sandwich.. hmmm. Overall a miserable experience.
