Girl at front desk said would we like to sit in or out, we said out, we followed her to the table...it was in!! We just sat there but thought how can ‘out’ sound like ‘in’!! The food was mixed. Had a shared starter which we hadn’t finished when the rest of our food came out. Waitress just took our starter didn’t even ask if we had finished. One of us ordered one main dish and the other two small starter dishes. A pity they came out at the same time. Peppered chicken wings were too peppery, so left most of the plate. Meatballs were delicious, burger okay.

We had a problem with one of the meals not being what my friend ordered. The food runner brought it back to the kitchen but never alerted the server. When the server did check in on us, my friend had already been waiting a bit so it was a while before her corrected order came out.

Brunch was delicious. The potato donuts sound weird but unbelievably good. Potato makes for a sweet and savory filling for fresh hot donuts swimming in frosting. The kind of dish you remember and want to go back for. Main dishes of a frittata and egg hash were also filling and delicious. Neither my wife nor I were hungry all day after brunch. Service was ok. Had to ask for coffee refill and sugar. Live music is a nice touch and singer was good. Too bad he’s stuck in a narrow space and 3/4 of customers can’t see him. Setting is great in a new space that feels like it’s been there forever. Bathroom situation not my favorite. No gender designation and too few for such a large restaurant. Makes for a great brunch with a side of Awkward.

Food was mediocre, especially for the prices. The chicken dinner was dry and unremarkable, but the farro and mushroom it came with was excellent. Unfortunately, all three of my friends had an upset stomach through the following day.

We went early before a Sat event (5 pm seating), so it wasn't crowded. Our waiter was friendly, attentive, and helpful, and the kitchen reworked my meal to accommodate my having misread the menu, which was much appreciated. Everything was delicious, service was prompt. We both loved the Brussels sprouts; my husband enjoyed his classic lobster roll; my salmon was perfectly done.

Great lunch spot, friendly staff and nice atmosphere for sharing a beer with friends. Food is delicious. The clam chowder is really really delicious here. Tons of clams, smoky bacon and potatoes mmmmm! I had the BPH burger which was very savory and prepared to perfection. Burger was juicy with tons of flavor. My wife had the BPH hotdog which was a little messy but so worth it. She raved about it and loved the creativeness and how the flavors just worked so well together. The BPH tots poutine came out fresh and hot and are worth trying.
Great drink choices and craft beer selections on draft.
What are you waiting for book it now. Don’t

Great food!! We both ordered hamburgers but I requested my hamburger wrapped in lettuce and they only offer putting the hamburger on a bed of salad - not exactly what I wanted.
Waitress was fantastic and very attentive. Will come back.

Horrible mixed up pasta entree dish. The waitress over charged us $10.00 (on purpose). The noise level required us to shout at each other. Was a loud party atmosphere for tourists.

Great for a group of 9 (high top was surprisingly comfortable). Desserts were bliss! Service seemed a bit slow in the beginning but improved (the place was busy); servers tried hard - and succeeded - with order changes, add-ons. Children and adults were happy with menu selections - bar and food. My biggest gripe was the noise; it was very difficult to hold a conversation. How about some acoustic buffering!?! And turn off the "music."

The food and service at Bostonia Public House was quite good. The restaurant was very noisy, which made it a little challenging as an atmosphere for a business lunch. The menu was a little pricey for the quality, though not out of line with expectations for a sit down meal on the edge of three finance district.

My teenage son and I stopped for a late dinner after a long day of sight seeing. The lobster roll, mac and cheese, tater tots and baked beans were all out of this world. We were thrilled with every bite! The waitstaff was super friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was noisy and fun. Highly recommend!!

Food was great - had lobster Mac and cheese - full portion - and spinach salad with goat cheese - Half portion - suggest splitting both Mac and cheese and salad in two - more than enough food ... along with flat bread to wipe up the plate of Mac and cheese. No room for desert.

Comida buena. Sobre todo el postre. El servicio también muy amable. El camarero muy atento. Es un local con ambiente y el nivel de ruido alto porque tienen música en vivo y la gente hablaba alto. Pero estaba bien. La única pega que le pongo es que La Luz era tenue y no se veía bien el menú. Por todo lo demás si lo recomiendo

Nous avons passé une très belle soirée. Service impeccable rapide et prévenant. Super ambiance. Le vin de Californie que nous avons choisi était savoureux. La cuisine plutôt bonne en fonction des plats, le saumon aurait pu être plus tendre, les pâtes étaient au contraire formidable et le homard a tenu toutes ses promesses. Merci !

I don't know if I will recommend Bostonia to a friend. I have spoken to management in the past about having one or two vegetarian items in their prix-fixe menu. However they have not obliged. They claim that we can request a vegetarian item, but when you request it, the person serving you (more often than not) says that there can be changes to the prix-fix menu. A lot of my friends are vegetarian. Bostonia should include at least one hot and one cold "Mains" to their Prix-Fixe lunch. I know a lot of folks that do not go to Bostonia for this exact reason. Otherwise as I stated above, the service and the ambiance are both pretty good! Thanks.
