Food was overly sweet, not enough flavors given Asian theme.
Specially the fried rice and stir fried vege. Avacado bao was good.
We were happy that we could eat outside, even though OpenTable would not allow us to reserve an outside table! Service was quick and friendly, and the food was good. The mushroom bao was excellent!
I wanted to try everything on the menu! I’m definitely dining there again before I leave town!
Banyan is always a pleasure! Welcoming vibe, the most perfect Boston patio, and delicious drinks and food!
I highly recommend Banyan Bar + Refuge. The food was delicious with so many great flavors. We ordered a few small dishes to share and of course dessert, perfect for two! Such a lovely experience and amazing service. The waiters were fantastic and everything came out on time and beautifully. We sat outside on the patio next to a heat lamp surrounded by magical lights and greenery. We can’t wait to dine again with friends and family and hope to try inside next time!
Food and service were excellent!
Our server was simply amazing!
food overcooked and over spiced
Everything about our experience was
Amazing atmosphere and drinks! Food was on the spicy side.
Whole fish was amazing. We also had the pork belly bao buns that were delicious. Beautiful outdoor space and service was great.
Extremely Bland Food with No flavor or Flair. Other than their nice outdoor seating nothing memorable about this restaurant. Would not return
Subpar food and service with a barking dog more than offset the lovely patio dining ambiance.
It was our first time visiting Banyan Bar. We sat outside under the trees and the white lights were on. Such a pretty setting. The waiter had great timing and the food was good. Such a nice anniversary dinner.Definitely will visit again and bring friends.
Had a wonderful time at Banyan Refuge. Great ambiance and excellent food. We chose many different options of food. All were excellent!!
My husband and I decided to do date night in a different neighborhood and had a wonderful meal at Banyan Sunday night. The outdoor ambiance was excellent as it wasn’t breezy and Covid-safe but had a restaurant feel given the size of the patio. The miso Caesar salad was amazing, as was the spicy cauliflower and the delicious cabbage-wrapped chicken rolls. The Dan-Dan noodles and mushroom were also great and my husband enjoyed his cocktail (I loved their French rose). We highly recommend Banyan Bar for dinner—great, attentive service too.
Nice to see my brother and his girlfriend
Such a great spot for outdoor dining! Food and service were excellent. Can't beat the location.
Great service, outdoor seating, the food is good, the drinks delicious. Make this a stop, if you do, the BOA buns are delicious
The food was excellent. My only disappointment was that they had run out of the short ribs by 7:30 PM.
Service was also excellent.
Great outdoor seating with all lamps and nice weather. The food was amazing and the group had a great time! Thank you!
Nice good food
Service and timing was pretty terrible
Amazing cocktails & delicious food - fun for groups or date night
Great evening with friends. Servers did a wonderful job and the food was delicious and interesting. Who could ask for more?
Very nice spot with a well written veg forward menu…unfortunately not executed very well on this particular evening
Upon getting there and giving my name to the 3 hostesses they made me and my daughter very uncomfortable by whispering and laughing, very unprofessional.
The server was pleasant (Salome) was not informative of the menu. We ordered the lettuce wrap, kfc bos and calamari. The calamari was delicious but the other 2 starters were way too spicy to enjoy. When we informed our server of the heat of the kfc bai she laughed it off and said that was the spiciest thing on the menu. We decided to settle our bill at this point.
I think more training is needed for this group. It was a very disappointing experience and will be hesitant to come back.
Great atmosphere. Food is good, a bit pricey for portions but very pretty dishes!
Food and drinks were good! There were multiple rats running in the bushes adjacent to the patio tables that sort of ruined the ambiance.
Great outdoor space!!
Our server was prompt, polite, and everything came to us as planned. The flavor combinations were interesting and delicious. The portions were ample but not overwhelming. We ate outside. It was decorated nicely, tables were spaced well, and the whole experience lovely.
Banyan never disappoints. The food is delicious and inventive and the service is attentive.
Great evening and experience. Jimmy was a delight to meet!
We went as a group of 6 to celebrate a special occasion. I had arranged to have sparkling rose at the table which was all set up when we got there. The outdoor ambiance is beautiful with lights and fauna and great energy. The service is wonderful, always present but not overbearing. And the food and cocktails were delicious, we ordered family style and everything we had was great. A perfect spot for a group! Highly recommend!
Love the venue, service, and food at Banyan -- the manager is amazing! Makes you feel right at home (and was so understanding about a spilled drink!)
From the reservation to the seating, to the service, the experience of Banyan was amazing. We got a call the day before the reservation to manage expectations of seating due to weather. Then the next morning, received a message confirming the change of seating. We arrived, and service was just on point. Welcoming, but not overbearing.
That's not even mentioning the food. The food came out at a good pace. Everything we had was delicious.
Definitely we'll be back !!!
Food and drinks were great, as was the service. Enjoyed the socially-distanced outdoor seating on a lovely later summer evening.
Wonderful meal and great ambience! Banyan is always a favorite, and very convenient when attending a show at The Calderwood Pavilion.
Absolutely loved Banyan Bar + Refuge. Phenomenal service, charming outdoor seating area, exceptional food. Out of our five nights in Boston, probably our favorite restaurant on the trip. Highly highly recommend.
Very good food and beautiful seating area outside.
