This was our first visit to Boston and our first restaurant that we tried. Jenn was our waitress and made the experience such a welcoming one. The atmosphere was vibrant, but not noisy and the food was delicious! Would definitely go there again on our next visit!

Restaurant has a great location and high potential. it was quite empty when we arrived, and were surprised when we were told at checkin that we can't get a table by the window as they were reserved. We were given a table by the serving station & restroom, while two tables by the windows sat empty through our brunch. Servers were good but seemed stressed out by management. Food was good not great. Overall - great potential, mediocre execution. Can do better.

Stayed at a hotel near Faneuil Hall and was having a hard time finding a place to get a real breakfast! Plenty of pastry type places in nearby North End but we wanted a more substantial eggs and bacon type meal. This place was perfect-had a brunch on Weekend mornings. Tasty food, efficient waitress, nice atmosphere right in Faneuil Hall.

We came for a brunch and were not disappointed! I got the sausage and two eggs with toast and it was amazing- potatoes were delicious! Coffee was fresh and of good quality! My fiancé got a breakfast sandwich on a Portuguese roll and he loved it!! We will definitely be coming back!

Every time I have made a reservation at Anthem in Opentable it asks me whether I want a regular table or a high top. EVERY reservation I’ve made I’ve requested a regular table not a high top. EVERY time I arrive at Anthem I’m seated at a high top. It’s now a running joke with my guests. STOP ASKING WHAT TYPE OF TABLE I WANT - NO ONE IS LOOKING AT THAT INFORMATION!!!!

We went for NYE. We were a few minutes late but still seated right away. We ordered a mix of appetizers and entrees to share and everything was delicious. The food came out very quickly and our waitress was very nice. I can't wait to go back to try more.

The 4 or us had not seen each other for some time and appreciated the ability to converse. We had excellent service from several different people as well as delicious salads and chowder. The fish served with the fish and chips was a real disappointment though; it came with a too-heavy coating of bread crumbs. Overall - I would strongly recommend the restaurant, I would definitely visit again, and I would order something other than the fish and chips.

Great atmosphere, especially at Christmas. Right in Fanueil Hall! Service was outstanding. Food was ok: chowder was best we have ever had, burgers yummy, ..... however, veggies arrived cold, appetizer portions were somewhat skimpy (but delicious), fish just ok.
We would go again.

We have been to Anthem many times over the years and know exactly what we are getting. Solid comfort food, friendly service and vibrant atmosphere. This visit was no exception with a couple of small changes. We were seated upstairs in the area that's open to downstairs. Made it very difficult for conversation. I much prefer the closed in dining area. The positive surprise was the cocktail menu. We had a drunken fig which was just outstanding!! All in all still a good spot that I would recommend.

The hostess was rude, unfriendly and seemed annoyed when we told her we had reservations but were early. The restaurant was less than half full and it was only 4:30 on a Saturday so not sure what issue was but a terrible first impression. The food was alright not special and appetizers were loaded with salt making it difficult to eat. It was very noisy and dark. Wouldn’t recommend unfortunately.

This review is for myself and my husband only. We brought our 16 year old daughter here the same night with six of her friends for birthday dinner. They had great service and enjoyed their meals very much. My husband and I sat downstairs near the bar and I ordered the winter pear salad while my husband got the baked haddock. His meal was fine, the fish was very fresh with roasted potatoes and broccoli. A very simple dish, almost plain presentation, but very tasty just the same. My salad was a radicchio based one with walnuts, pear and goat cheese. Unfortunately it lacked a good combination of flavors - overly bitter with too much radicchio and nothing to balance the flavor, and it tasted as though it had no dressing. I mentioned this to the waitress and she spoke with the manager. They were kind enough to remove it from our bill. I was impressed by this and appreciate the gesture . It shows they care about quality. Overall it's a great spot with a nice selection of food and you can't beat the location.

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.
