    Perfect evening! The staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Martin was the most gracious server and anticipated our every need. The food was outstanding and the music was perfect! We look forward to going back when we next visit Boston. This is a must!!

    The server we had was one of the top 5 worst I’ve ever had. She took 30 minutes to bring our waters, another 20 minutes for our drinks. Our food came out before our drinks (the kitchen was very quick so no complaints there). We could see her chatting up the bartender behind the bar the entire time, not doing her job. She up charged everything without telling us it cost extra (saying they only had two top shelf tequilas, asking if we want a side of sauce which was an extra $5, asking light or dark rum not saying one was extra, etc.). She messed up my wine and one of our dishes. Both still ended up on the check. The food was delicious but considering the service we received, it felt very overpriced. It sincerely felt like our server was purposely trying to run up the bill. We saw her doing it to the big group next to us as well. Unfortunately, we won’t be back due to this experience.

    Roughly 500$ for a party of 5 w/ three drinks. The apps were a B+. However, the entrees were truly awful (F) with the lobster & shrimp scampi a joke. Consider a lot of pasta covered mostly with something akin to tobasco sauce with 1 oz of lobster and 1 very small shrimp, possibly a part of one. We had two of these orders for 38$ each. Both of us picked through the lobster which did not amount to a meal. I'll never return- save your $$$, there are new and better restaurants opening in Boston every month!

    Patio seating on a fairly warm evening. The drinks and dessert (cheesecake and pot de creme) were particularly refreshing. They have a fantastic truffle fried cauliflower and a baby back rib appetizer. Our server was attentive and courteous, and the staff supported her very nicely.

    Great quality and taste. Skimpy 4oz pour for the wine but when I mentioned that to the waiter, he returned with the standard 6 oz pour. That was my only issue. Server and staff extremely attentive.

    It was hard to find there was no sign that said Beehive anywhere and no sign that said where the entrance was. I had a friend try to meet up with me and also was lost. There was an chalk sign next to an outdoor patio that said welcome to the B but that was confusing as the restaurant next store also had a B name (Banyan) but if I was not a frequent patron I would have never known. So I wasted 10 minutes trying to find it. We were also told by someone over the phone that brunch ended at 4. For the hostess to tell us brunch ends at 3 and last call to order was at 2:40 to than be told by our waiter last call was at 3:00pm. It all just seemed confusing.

    Amazing food, I got the shakshuka with lamb and it was the best so far! My friend ordered a bloody mary but the server never put in the order (not on receipt either). Overall great food! Like all places atm, need more servers so keep that in mind when you go.

    We loved it. The musicians were great, and the ambiance is wonderful. The dining room, bar, and stage area all have a great vibe. Our food and drinks were excellent. I highly recommend the grilled salmon and the garlic shrimp appetizer (the black rice was delicious). Sister restaurant, Cosmica, is right around the corner and is great too.,

    I was here for brunch with my son. His meal was great and so was his juice. I had the american breakfast (eggs, hashbrowns and bacon). The bacom had absolutely no taste - so weird. Not even salt. And the socalled hashbrowns where whole potatoes..? Why not call it what it is. The location though is really nice og so was the live jazz playing.

    Neita, our server was extraordinarily good. Very attentive, pleasant, helped us out with food choices. The low sugar Mojito’s were also extremely good, and the food was also extremely good… A lot better than I remember. This is a really nice venue. Highly recommend it. If I had to say one negative thing is that they need more soundproofing on the walls because it gets very loud … but other than that it’s a great spot.!

    Pretty disappointing portion sizing for the prices. Our server also informed us that if we had comprehensively read the menu we would know some beers weren’t available on the patio. We were somewhat taken aback by this. Later on we discovered she knew the 22% tip was included in the bill. Wouldn’t recommend.
