Anthem Ratings and Reviews
A can't beat location with a mix of tourist and locals as patrons. Go in the warmer months because the main bar can be quite cold due to its open glass roof. Maybe it was the particular evening but everyone was wearing a jacket. Food is above average but you are paying for the Faneiul Hall real estate.
This review is about brunch. Menu had usual brunch fare, from eggs to pancakes/french toast, not extensive but something for everyone. Interesting that some of the food came with "Portuguese muffins" which are a sweeter version of and English muffin. Food was decent. Service was very friendly. My party cleaned their plates.
We’re from CA and make an annual trek to Boston every year. My first dinner stop is always Anthem. Great food, delicious crafted drinks, excellent service. I haven’t had anything bad here and I love it more every time I go. The enclosed patio bar is wonderful when it’s cold, or the open air patio provides great people watching when it’s warm like it was this week. Have the fondue, crab cakes, pretzels to start and don’t forget the lobster Mac and cheese!!
My husband and I went to Anthem to celebrate our first anniversary and to relive our first date, dinner at Anthem. My husband told the hostess the reason why we were there as we wanted to possibly sit at the same table. They were able to accommodate us with our table, and then gave us complimentary glasses of prosecco and wrote Happy Anniversary on our receipt. We felt so special and were blown away by their hospitality. We started with the homemade chips and onion dip, which is always yummy. My husband has the prosciutto and fig flatbread and I had the wicked spicy burger. Everything was absolutely delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be returning for many many more years to come to celebrate the big moments in our life.
We gave the food a D+! The soft pretzel app was clearly frozen as one side of each pretzel was cold. The steak did not have the sauce described on the menu and came with plain French fries, also different from what was described in the menu. The prices for the quality of the food were ridiculous. I don't know how this place stays alive in Fanueil Hall!
This was our first time trying anthem. I'm born and raised in MA but had 8 friends from FL coming to visit and wanted to show them a diverse selection of New England fare without breaking anyone's bank. Stumbled upon Anthem- read the reviews and decided it fit the bill. The clam chowder is award winning and boy does it live up to its title. We all ordered different things varying from the lobster Cobb, lobster Mac and cheese, wicked spicy burger, surf and turf tacos, lobster rolls, etc. it was all so so good. Our server was awesome and he was so funny and friendly. Which is a rare find. Overall great experience.
I went there with my family of 13 after making an advance reservation. The table was set up in a way that had us all very far from each other - and our kids, but we were put on a lovely back deck with a nice view of the street. Food was ok. Nothing special, but you can't beat the location for a gathering of friends visiting Boston. Some more healthy options on the menu would be nice.
Food was very average, not nearly worth the price . Waitress was fairly attemtive but kitchen must have lost track of our order as it took a long time for our food to arrive. But tables on both sides of us received theirs at the same time despite sitting down well after us. This place has a great location but I won't go back.
I had dinner here for my bachelorette party with a large group of 11 people. The restaurant gave us 3 servers for our table and they took great care of us. The menu is limited, but the food was well cooked and it is in a great Faneuil hall location if you are spending a night out in that area of Boston.
The kitchen must have been having an off day. We've been to Anthem many times and it is usually really good. This time, the fondue was mediocre and the cheese curds, which we hadn't tried at Anthem before, were served as one large blob of fried cheese. Disappointed but will probably give it another chance since this was the first time we have had this type of experience. Service though was friendly and good, and the people watching was great as usual.
Food was decent but portions were small for what you paid. Ordered the fried pickles for the table to share there was barely enough for two people to share. Our waiter had to fluctuate between upstairs and downstairs so he could not be as attentive as I'm sure he would have liked.
I went out with my team from work and everyone's meal was really tasty. We had the salmon/avocado poke and other assorted apps when we got there - the poke really stood out. I had the Faroe islands salmon and asked for it rare and it was cooked perfectly. Everyone else really enjoyed their meals as well. The strawberry creme brulee was a wonderful finish to a wonderful meal.
We visit Anthem often, as it is right next door to our office. I have been several times for business lunches, but this was for a coworker's birthday. The menu has many options for all tastes. Everyone enjoyed their meals and we were completely full when done.
Generally I like it here. Dinner has always been good. I got brunch this weekend and was quite disappointed with the huevos rancheros Benedict. The menu described it as having "black beans, chorizo, avocado, and Cholula hollandaise" and I didn't get much of any of these. There was about one tbsp of black beans on the roll, one bite of avocado, and a drizzle of hollandaise that was so minimal I never tasted it. As for the chorizo, I'm assuming the pinch of brown specks sprinkled on the top must have been meat. Even the poached egg was a let down - cutting into it with my fork I was disappointed to see no drippy yolk, it was completely cooked through. This dish was essentially two pieces of bread with a couple toppings, not a truly decadent eggs Benedict. I'm happy that I ordered a side of beignets to share as it left me very pleased with my meal. They were delicious, fresh off the fryer, and came with melted Nutella. While I ended on a high note, I don't anticipate having brunch here again.
