We went to the Beehive for brunch. It is a really fun place with live jazz music. The food and cocktails were great, but it is pretty expensive.

We've been to the Beehive many times. It is great. Food was excellent. .. tuna tartare, duck, swordfish and bread pudding. Sunday of Labor Day and jazz / blues music made for a great time.And, the service was excellent.

We arrived for a 2:30pm reservation and our table was not ready. The hostess told us we could get a drink at the the bar and would get us, which she did.

The hostess brought us to our table and our server came over. We asked him for his name (which I won't say) and he was very nice, gave us our menus and told us what they ran out of for food. He said he would be back shortly to take our drink order.

We had to ask for another server as ours was no where to be found and he took our order for a mix drink and beer. We waited close to 20 minutes before we had to ask where our drinks were. Finally our original server came over to give us our drinks. At that same time, we told him we would like to order, while we were telling him this he started to take our brunch menus away and proceeded to tell us that brunch ended at 4:00pm. Really! Would it have killed you to come over at say 3:30pm and tell us that brunch would be ending soon and that we should put our orders in soon.

Loved the ambience, really cool place, great great hostess but our experience was ruined due to our poor customer service from our waiter.

We went for their brunch and ended up waiting almost an hour for drinks and didn't get to try their brunch food.

Just what you want for a Sunday brunch--with great Jazz to boot! Do not miss this place! I gotta be honest, I don't like a few of their policies, but if they let you sit down while you are waiting for your tardy guests and allow you to start loading up with the creme de violette drinks, I will bet you will agree with me that the place has a great vibe and food to match!

The Beehive is a regular "go to" place when needing great food with healthy choices and fabulous ambiance. It does get noisy, so I try to go on the early side, which is just lovely.

Brunch food was pretty top notch. But despite having a reservation(that we arrived on time for) we waited over 45 minutes to be seated. We dealt with a rotation of 3 people acting as host and they were seating people in the most random order and totally forgot about us as we sat at the bar drinking our iced coffees, it took 3 occasions of checking on a table wait time with the various hosts to finally get someone to seat us. Had heard great things and to be honest this probably won't deter me from returning at some other point if friends want to go because the hollandaise sauce was rather stellar but yikes, that wait was making us hangry.

The food and service were wonderful. However, the hostess did not notify us to be mindful of the bottom stair on a dark stairway. I tripped on that bottom step and my right knee is now extremely swollen . I will need to see an orthopedic physician when I return home.

Appetizers: great. Entrees: ok. Dessert: not so much. Service: main server was experienced, but bussing staff were laughably inept. But the main reason to go to The Beehive is for the top notch musicians performing live, for no extra cover. Tonight was no exception. If this were solely a South End upper-ish scale restaurant, I'd ding it for mediocrity at the price point they charge. But combined with the ambience and music, it's a fun date night spot, and the food can be pretty good.

The Beehive had a great atmosphere with the live jazz music. We had a great table which gave us an excellent view of the bands while they played. The service did feel a little rushed but fortunately, as it was later in the evening, we were able to stay at our table to listen to more of the music.

We came here for my husband's birthday because he wanted someplace with live music. The band was fun. The food was okay, but overpriced, especially for its casual presentation. Our service was kind of intermittent and slow. I would maybe come back here again if there was a band I was looking forward to seeing.

They were super accommodating to a reservation change that we had to make last minute. Jazz brunch is great for atmosphere but we were really rushed probably because brunch ended at 2:30 and we came at 2. Food came before the drinks. Server seemed not really into it but she was still nice. Not great options for vegetarians.

 (Orlando)·Dined on August 6, 2017

We came in from out of town and went straight there for an important meeting. Mind u - we were the first there. So when we were seated. The receptionist was please don't touch the desk this way. It's an antique. Slightly rude. Then we sere sat down. Asked for a booth small which sat 3. And said no you can't sit there. And I said why not and they replied well we just can't. Every person is on radio and they have no idea of common sense or customer service. So then we ordered a drink and they said can't make that either. Bars are not allowed to have egg yolks behind the bar. So we are already at two I cants. Now we were like what is going on. So we ordered. Food was decent. The coffee cake was good. Nothing spectacular. The bloody was decent. The issue is they have all this space. And their customer service is absolutely terrible. I mean BAD. They come to your table every second that you can't even have a conversation without being interrupted. I mean for goodness sake can we just eat and have our drink without two to theee people coming up to your table every 3 minutes. My suggestion if your going to a spot and want a great brunch. Find another space. This place is a bad piece of fruit. Looks good on the outside but rotting on the inside. There are many brunch places in Boston and trust me folks this is not one of them. 100 percent! Though I would have another bloody and coffee cake

Beehive had a great ambience, live music (which was not too loud/overbearing where we were sitting) and a good buzz around the restaurant. Wine was great, starters were excellent - we had the poutine and the ceviche - and entrees were pretty good - swordfish, and mousaka. Would definitely recommend for a date/ special occasion, although it is definitely a bit on the pricey side.

Food, drinks, and service were great. Could not have asked for a better waiter. However, we were greatly disappointed with our seating. Made reservations in advance and got a table in the corner close to the bar and away from the stage. The live entertainment and ambience is one of things we have always enjoyed about the Beehive. We could not hear or see the singer from where we were. The noise from the bar changed everything.

My first visit to the Beehive, my family's n-th. Excellent brunch menu - difficult to choose. The hash and eggs plate was excellent: healthy mix of vegis and meat, just the right amount of meat (and not excessively salty, as many hashes are). Wanted to take some home but couldn't stop eating :-) The same for all of us.

The jazz was mellow and just the right volume to talk and hear but also to appreciate.

We made a reservation the day before and therefore got and upstairs seat. Could still see the band, both through the railing and also projected - gently - onto the wall. A very pleasant surprise.

Excellent service by all. no rush to leave - they book each table for 2 hours. It's hard to get a reservation sometimes. so book as soon as you can.

There could be a few more gluten-free items (or items adaptable to being gluten-free) on the menu.

We will return. It was an excellent

While I was very excited to be eating brunch to live music, I was somewhat disappointed to be seated at a table nowhere near the band. When I asked to be moved, the waiter said the other tables were all reserved. I thought this was odd since I myself had made a reservation online several days in advance. The band also took a very long intermission during our brunch, which defeated the purpose of live music brunch, in my opinion! Finally, the food was not very good: if you go, DON'T get the ricotta with rhubarb compote- tasted like ketchup!

I have now been to the Beehive for an early dinner outside as well as their Jazz Brunch downstairs - what an incredibly special place. From the delicious house-made ricotta with rhubarb to the curated wine list, this place gracefully runs the gamut without over sprawling. The live music and décor sets the scene, with bohemian flare and local talent. I ordered the shakshuka for brunch - something I had been meaning to try but my server was finally able to talk me into. Get it with the Moroccan sausage which is optional. Great balance of sweet and salty, creamy polenta and mild acidity of the tomatoes. Can't wait to come back again for a late dinner and their weekly reggae nights!
