    We come here every few weeks because we can’t get enough of the fantastic music, the service is always great, and we love the energetic atmosphere. The white bean dip with pickled cauliflower is delicious, the meatballs are great, the baked chicken is yummy. We have had a few things that fell flat so that’s why I’m giving the food 4 stars rather than 5. The sirloin I had once was tough and our food was less than hot a few times.

    We had an amazing brunch! Although we were just by the stage, the music was not loud, we could still talk and hear each other. The frittata was awesome. My friends liked shakshuka but I am not a big lamb fan so I passed. Our server was so attentive that I never ran out of coffee, which I really care about during brunch. My friend had a mimosa and she had it with a splash of cranberry juice. She said it was amazing.

    Unfortunately we had a bad experience for dinner. I was excited to take my mom to dinner, and having had a pleasant time here for drinks, we thought we’d give dinner a shot. We saw our server twice the whole experience, first to take our drink order, and then to bring our drinks and take our dinner order. We never saw him again. My mom’s food was dry, and had been sitting under the heat lamp for a while, my order was luke-warm. We would have loved to had gotten more drinks, water, and dessert, but after being left alone, for 25 minutes, we just wanted our check. When talking to our server that we had some issues and would have wanted more drinks, he responded with “well you can still order drinks if you wanted them”. Sadly the beehive has lost us as customers and it seems they care more about the yo-pro clientele.

    Great atmosphere. Nice selection of eclectic brunch items. Service staff could use a bit of polish in attentiveness and hospitality, but that perception may come from the fact that service was incredibly friendly and helpful everywhere we went in Boston. Jazz sets could be longer—really good guitarist!

    The food is very expensive and not good. I got the brisket which was very fatty and had no seasoning. On the side they also just gave me 7 full potatoes, not mashed or cut or seasoned or anything. Just plain boiled potatoes.

    It was such a fun and vibrant atmosphere. The food was great and our waiter was the best waiter we’ve had in a long time - very attentive, and he hustled. We bought our 17 and 19 year old teenagers and they enjoyed it and said it was cool”. We will definitely go back again.
