I’m beside myself with how awful the service was. It seemed like it was from support staff to manager, (with the exception of the hosts) everyone’s first day in a restaurant. 30 minutes to take a simple brunch order. Half of our order arrived and we sat there for a good 10 minutes before the rest of the food arrived; in those 10 minutes no explanation was given to where the rest of the order was or what to expect. Just a bizarre awful experience.

Service, seating, and ambience was great. The live music was a nice touch as well. We sat near the band and we could still have a full conversation comfortably (without having to shout over the music). I had their Queen Bee cocktail which was apparently their most popular - but it’s not on their menu. It was good but definitely more of a drink to sip on. It was very sweet and tasted like lychee (the fruit).
For food:
Hor devours: their strawberry coffee cake was PHENOMENAL. It’s definitely small (especially for the price). And shared among 4 people - we each got two small bites and finished it. But it was so good - especially when it was fresh and warm. Crunchy /on the outside edge but soft and warm on the inside. They added berries and confectioners sugar on top which was a nice touch. But their honey-butter on the side was EXCELLENT. I would have bought a whole jar of it if I could. It went VERY well with their coffee cake and I even asked for more for my main entree.
Main entrees: my friends and I got the (two) Turkey Hash, Salmon Benedict’s, and the chicken-steak. All were good but it didn’t blow us away. All the dishes were slightly too salty. But the portions are large (except for the Benedict dish which was your normal-sized-Benedict-dish) and definitely filling.
But the waiter kept coming around to refill our water glass - so service was definitely perfect. But then again, the place wasn’t packed.
Overall, a good experience but probably would only come back for their coffee cake. You’re essentially paying for the ambience (vibe & live music & service) than for the food.

The location of the Beehive makes it grand for theater goers, and the service was spectacular. The setting feels hollow and it was difficult to find light, and the food was just OK.

We had a great experience at Beehive. We tried the lamb, skirt steak and duck. Everyone’s meals were delicious and we did not have to wait long for the food to come out. Overall, had a great experience and planning on coming back next time we are in town.

Delicious food! We loved the vegetable curry, avocado salad, and roast lamb! Live music was fun as well. A bit difficult for longer conversations as it was pretty noisy in the restaurant. Ultimately we had a great time and enjoyed the energy and tasty food.

We were placed right in front of the band. I asked if the band was going to be loud and the hostess assured me it would not be. We were there for a business meeting and basically it was a complete fail. It was too loud. I am disappointed that this was not explained to us, giving us the option of a quieter space within the restaurant, BEFORE we got there.

I went to Beehive with out of town friends. Our server, Kate, was fabulous. She read the table well, make great suggestions, was just really helpful. The food was excellent. We were sitting fairly close to the front and there was a jazz trio playing. The music was good, but made it a little tough to chat. Would definitely go back.

Everything was exceptionally great. Service from all members was considerate, helpful, and simply a joy. The food arrived much quicker than we thought and the drinks were delicious. The has band was playing which made the nose level energetic but otherwise it was easy to hold a conversation with moderate noise.

The service was excellent and we went during a very quiet time which was nice. The ambiance is really nice for a date or special occasion. Only thing is that the food was overpriced, it is elevated bar food which is really delicious but was still too much money for what they offer. The cocktails were so good though- they were dangerous!

A fabulous way to celebrate my birthday especially with Michael at the bar.

The staff is amazing & be it as it may have the menu doesn’t attract Vegans, the effort for accommodations is a plus.

The live music is grade A & as the Brad Goff band was extremely entertaining especially the Violinist.

I’ll visit the Beehive each time I return to Boston.
