Dinner was exceptional. Our server Omar was professional and had extensive knowledge of the menu. I am gluten-free and it’s is one of the best menus I have seen in the city. I had written in the open table notes that we were celebrating 3 of my girlfriends’ birthdays and he surprised us with a dessert and candle!

We have given this place a couple of tries and while the atmosphere and service are very nice, the food would be good if it wasn’t that awfully salty. The steak tartare was toxically salty so even though it was otherwise excellent, we simply couldn’t eat it. Some of the other dishes were also very salty but at least edible. We eat out virtually all the time and I have never had such an experience with a number of things on the menu. Such a pity since the food selection is actually quite lovely.

Very disappointed in the craft cocktails. My octopus appetizer was way over cooked and the burgers were sadly lacking flavor. I ordered my burger rare and they served it Med-well. The service was friendly. The bar area looked fun.

I came to Boston to pack up my daughter after her freshman year....she and I are vegetarian. She accused me of ordering a real burger! but no, it was a brilliant fake! You will never go back to meat again if all veg burgers are like this...give it a try? delicious!

Our waiter was beyond perfect. He was thoughtful, professional, knowledgeable and unobtrusive while still being helpful. We loved ever item we ordered! The whole experience (with the exception of the noise level which was just a little too high for us over 60 year olds who are starting to have difficulty hearing conversation among a din) was delightful.

Night before the Boston Marathon, the place was surprisingly empty. Had an excellent server (Omar). Caesar salad and roasted chicken were very good; the short ribs were too fatty. Decent selection of wine and a wide variety of desserts. Overall a decent place for a business dinner.

Consistently excellent. Precinct has become one of our favorite restaurants in Boston. We've had the same server for several visits now and he is always professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and efficient. The quality of the food is equally impressive. This time we enjoyed the filet mignon and the baked haddock. Both were delicious and cooked to perfection. Cocktails and wine selection are also good. Look forward to returning again soon.

Just so great. I needed to increase the size of my party ... twice from the original number. I was skeptical that it would work when I had to leave a message in that regard. But lo and behold, they called me back by the end of the day. It was their pleasure to add one more guest to the table. And the second time I called to add another two bodies, my Open Table reservation was corrected to a party of 11 from 9. Just fantastic. Then, we arrived to a wonderful roomy table and Omar, an incredibly attentive waiter. We immediately asked for separate checks which we know can go one of two ways, and he made it happen seamlessly. Each and every member of our group raved about their food, the ambiance, the service. Highly recommend Precinct Kitchen & Bar!!!
