The food here is some of the best, if not the best in Boston absolutely loved it! The service was friendly and quick, and the atmosphere has a classy modern antique feel which is one of a kind. I’ll be happy to come back even just for that chocolate mousse omg!

Great experience! We got a pretty crappy table near an exit door that kept getting opened so dining in our jackets was ideal. Otherwise food and service were phenomenal

We sat at the bar and had brunch. The music and ambiance was energetic and it was a mix of all ages. Our bar tender Katie was amazing. My husband loved his burger w/a fried egg.

The food was great. The only issue we had is that when we ordered the second bottle of champagne, even though they told us we will have enough time, they were pressuring us too drink fast and leave. The manager was rude to us. However, the server we got was really polite.

The Beehive is an excellent place for brunch and live music, dinner, a drink by yourself, date night, you name it. The ambiance is excellent and the food and drinks are always very good.

My friend and I are a triple date here not too long ago and we all had a great time. The girls never called us back, but we’re awesome so who cares? Anyways, we love it here and will be back!

The lamb shoulder was insanely tasty! As much as I love the live music, it was nice that there wasn’t any this time around - could actually have a conversation over dinner without yelling

Love Beehive, and am so glad they're still able to run a safe space during the pandemic. It's the first time I have been to a restaurant in nearly a year, so very nice to get out.

Beehive was wonderful! Really taking safety into account; we arrived when it was a bit quieter. Service was unbelievably fast and efficient, which I generally do not expect at such a busy place as Beehive. our server was wonderful, friendly, knew the menu well. The drinks were great as always, and the one vegan entree on the menu was actually tasty and not flavorless! Overall wonderful, especially during the time of COVID. Wishing you all luck throughout the rest of the winter!

We understand due to COVID things have changed, but we didn’t expect the food quality to change. We were so disappointed in our meals. Menu has changed and missed some of the old options, but tried what was on the limited menu. The turkey hash was so dry and mushrooms slimy. And to make it worse, the brown blob sat on a plate with nothing else to compliment it. The over easy eggs were ok. Steak and eggs were good, and BBQ sandwich was fine.

We ordered drinks and two didn’t come until we asked for them after 20 minutes after the drinks for others at table arrived. Server was very pleasant.

Safety precautions were followed and we had a good table away from others. No music, so atmosphere was dull.

Pandemic dining hasn’t affected the Beehive experience too much. Great food, and I love the outdoor experience. The waiter could have been a bit more attentive, but I might chalk that up to the pandemic experience.

It was way over priced and menu was too limited for a Sunday brunch. Had to ask to have music volume turned down bc I could hear my friend talk. Wouldn’t recommend
