Live music, fantastic food, best Bloody Mary bar, and good service. The menu is pricey but the items are flavorful and creative. You just try if you can splurge a little.

Our server Cody was great with perfect suggestions. Food was superb. Live piano was a nice touch although made for a pretty loud restaurant.

Had an exquisite dinner on a last minute whim.

The maine mussels were excellent and the broth with the chorizo were perfect with our paired pinot. The wine also complemented the ribs perfectly, which by the way were fall off the bone and braised to the t.

Our finish was excellent as well with a split, great call by the waiter, of the truffle fontina risotto. The dish was exceptional and the textured layering of slightly crisp sugar snap peas and corn with a crunchy micro green mix really brightened up the dish.

Can't wait to go back and explore the menu more!

Food was fine but the evening was ruined by the most miserable server ever. Like we were intruding on his private grief. Hardly said a word. Very unpleasant and unprofessional.

Fabulous food and excellent service. Menu is small but expertly prepared. Great beer and wine selection too. I had lobster sandwich, brussel sprouts side, pinor noir and cheesecake. If I lived nearby I would come back often. Atmosphere was lovely and warm.

High top tables were the order of the day. Food is well seasoned but served with no care. The presentation is very lacking. No culinary art here just tasty food priced a bit toward the pricey end of Boston. I would go back for the lobster Mac.

Food was great. We ordered the salmon and the scallops. Service was good. Noise level was a little higher than preferred but the rest of the experience made up for it.

Had reservations at 8:00 on a rainy/windy Friday night. Visiting our adult son and his GF, and we arrived at 7:00 because we were hungry and thirsty! Went to the upstairs bar and had drinks and appetizers. The hostess stayed in touch with us the whole time. Bartender was great, drinks and appetizers at the bar were wonderful. Dinner was just as good. Great experience.

We went @2pm on Saturday...The food is really good, specially the polenta and the salad with cranberries. Ciara (not sure how write her name, although) was really friendly - all the time - with us, super helpful and smiley! We loved. Thank you.

The scallops are to die for, and are consistently good! Good ambiance, and a great place for business or social dinners.

This has got to be one of the BEST restaurants that I've ever been to. I'm not usually one for reviewing, but our experience certainly warranted it. We made a reservation for 5:30, and we arrived probably 10 minutes early and were immediately seated in a booth. The waitress came over and took our drink order, as we were looking at the menu, she came back to the table with two glasses of champagne because she had heard we were celebrating our recent engagement. We ordered the Tator Tot Poutine for an appetizer, which was such a simple dish, but out of this world amazing. For dinner we ordered the BPH Burger (for my fiancé) and the Tuna Crudo for myself. Holy moly, it was SO good. The atmosphere was loud, but not so loud that I was screaming to be heard. We loved our experience at Bostonia and will absolutely return next time we're in Boston.

Last meal in Boston before heading home.
I had the Lobster Mac and Cheese and my friend had a roasted Chicken dish that looked and tasted like Thanksgiving. It was a wonderful evening, outside on the sidewalk dining room.

Service and food was amazing! My husband and I visited here on our honeymoon. They brought us free champagne and seated us in a private booth by the bar that was perfect and romantic. The food is outstanding, we got the salmon dish and hot lobster roll and it was amazing! Best lobster roll I’ve ever had. Although it was loud, I didn’t mind at all. This is a must-go I absolutely loved it!

Had brunch with friends we had not seen for 10 years. They let us set our own pace and did not rush us through the meal. Reasonable pricing and large portions. All 6 members in the party enjoyed their food. Would definitely return.

I love the vibe of Bostonia! Unless you're seated directly across from the live music. However, I've started including it in my note when making a reservation to be seated elsewhere. This time we were sat upstairs, which had a nice combo of a relaxing yet vibrant feel. Apps took longer to come than they usually do, which was my only complaint. I still absolutely love the poutine tots, as well as the smoked salmon eggs benedict. Drinks are pricey, but delicious, and help give it that brunch flair. Always my go to brunch spot before leaving the city.

Attentive service and excellent food. The waitress was very personable and responsive. I ordered cod with crab meat. When they brought a super hot plate, I was afraid it would be dried out from the heat lamp. Not at all. Scrumptious fish and crab and roasted veggies. Dessert was a chocolate mousse with hazelnut crumbles and cacao nibs. Death by chocolate, in the best way. The place is noisy. I knew that going in. Next time, weather permitting, I will go for an outdoor table.

We decided to go for a more expensive restaurant, so we expected great food, great service and a great evening.
Our waiter was correct, but not happy and professional.
We started our dinner with a starter, but the waiter took that away eventhough we were still eating the chips that came with the starter. A couple of minutes later the maindish came already.
After we had finish the dish the waiter came with the bill immediately, without asking if we would liked a desert or anything else to drink. We went somewhere else for desert. In an hour our evening out at the bostonian was at an end.
We expected more.
Food was worth an compliment, but the service was bad.

There were only high bar style table settings in the dining area which made it difficult for my wife to sit comfortably while dining, the food was just o.k. and the only highlight was our server was nice and attentive.
