Food is amazing! Had the salt and pepper wings and raw tuna, both stellar! Sweet potatoe donuts for dessert. Service was a bit slow and the drinks are pricey relative to how good they are, but…did I mention the food is amazing!

We recently dined outdoors at the Bostonia on a lovely Saturday evening. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable and amiable. We sampled several different dishes and everything was delicious and well-presented.

Loved the ambiance, food over all was good, just had some allergic reaction to my cocktail, so I couldn’t enjoy my dinner too much, sadly.

The food was good, as usual, but it took exceptionally long for the food to be served (and then they made a mistake on one of the orders). Maybe they were short staffed?

Our food was so good! Two of us ha shy fish and chips, and there fish is so tasty! It is lightly battered and so flavorful. I substituted the sweet potato fries for the regular fries, and they were some of the best sweet potato fries I have ever eaten! The portions are big, and the foot was served very hot. Our server, Addison, is absolutely wonderful. She is friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful yet was never annoying or bothersome. She checked on us frequently but did not stop/chat unnecessarily. We were traveling from another state, so returning will not be very likely, but if I did find myself back in Boston, I would love to eat here again, order the same exact food (because it is that good), and ask to be seated in Addison’s section. The downside to our meal was due to a somewhat large after work gathering of men who stood at table across from our booth. They (and especially one man) were the loudest speaking people and strongly detracted from the ambiance of the restaurant and from our enjoyment of dinner. Fortunately, the loudest man in the group left halfway through our meal, and we could not have been happier. Overall, I recommend this restaurant and really enjoyed Addison as our server.

The only thing negative is that their taps were down, so I couldn't order a beer. The food was good, though.

Wait staff was not attentive. Had to flag him down to order, to get more water, to get the check. Flat soda was served, and I sent it back, but it wasn't taken off the bill. Medium burger was served rare.

The food was good but it was SO LOUD at 6pm on a weekday from the happy hour crowd. We literally couldn’t hear each other talking at our own table. Would not recommend for dinner, for this reason.

Service was great and so was food. Seated upstairs where cold air was blowing and several seats were right under the speakers. With noisy “neighbors”, we asked to move tables and they were more than accommodating. Great meal.

Stopped for lunch with friends. Checked out the menu in advance, as we all have specific meal requests (gluten free, vegetarian, etc) It was great! We all had different types of meals and they we great! The only disappointment was too much dressing on the salads, but we should have asked for it on the side. Cocktails were good too!!

They opened later than 9am after repeated texts telling us to be there for our 9am reso. My food sat so long in the window the soft boiled eggs on my $18.00 eggs Benedict hardened. Server never came back to check on us until she dropped the bill. My kid had two breakfast tacos for $12.00. The manager/guy hostess acted as though we were doing him a favor eating there. The poutine was delicious and the only reason the restaurant got any stars.

A little loud, but fine upstairs. Great mixed drinks, love the pork ribs and the wings. The ultimate burger was great, and the fries were hot and crispy. Food was fast and service great for our party of 5!

Maybe the name "Public House" should have tipped me off. This restaurant was SO NOISY! Our iPhone decibel meters read "92, LOUD. Repeated, long-term exposure to sounds at this level can damage your hearing." At dinner time on a weeknight, piano was playing and the packed bar was full of loud patrons. Not a good place to enjoy dinner with your friends if you actually want to talk to them. I asked if there was a more quiet area and was told no. Our food was fine, but we ordered the check with dinner, ate quickly and left.

We were visiting Boston for the first time and were looking for someplace close to our hotel. We were a little nervous upon first entering the restaurant because it was a bit loud and the crowd was pretty lively for a late afternoon.
However, our server was super friendly and attentive. The real surprise was how good the food was. I ordered the Steak Frites and it was cooked to perfection. This is quite often my go-to order when I travel, and the Bostonia’s dish is now on the top of my list. My wife and daughter also really enjoyed their meals, as well. Highly recommend, especially for the weary traveler.
