Terrible! I ordered a hot Lobster Roll and bit into something very sharp. For a second, I thought it might be a Lobster shell. However, upon examination, I found that it was lobster meat on a bamboo skewer inside my sandwich!!! Given that I was having a Business Dinner with a key investor, I did not want to raise attention on what just happened, but it was completely unacceptable and dangerous!

Bostonia is the best place for lunch on State Street. It’s basically pub food prepared with a little more care and tiny bit of flair. But it’s good and consistent and a pleasant place to sit.

Ordered virtually the same meal I used to order before: lobster Mac and cheese, polenta fries, salt and pepper wings. The quality is down from 5-star to 3-star. It’s still good, but not nearly as good as only few months before. Not sure if they changed ingredients or whatever else, but it’s not the same. This was a solid 5 star place, but I’d be lying giving it 4 now. It’s still good but other than service that place is no longer a.great value for lunch. I will give it another try, but if the quality of food keeps slipping even outstanding service won’t help

We were given a table at the farthest end of the restaurant even though the entire place was empty. We chose this place because we wanted to enjoy music along with our brunch, but because of where we were given a table and how little the musicians actually played it ended up being a disappointment. Food just average, as was the service. Definitely not going back.

This was an exceptional experience! The bloody mary bar was truly amazing- they have everything from ribs to bacon wrapped scallops to an array of pickled vegetables, cheese, and other treats to stuff in your glass. Food was also outstanding! Highly recommended destination and we will definitely be back again and again. Three cheers to Devon for awesome service too.

To have a 5 star experience on New Years’ Eve is nothing short of remarkable! We were in Boston for a quick vacation. The cocktails were superb, the food was excellent and the service was wonderful. We would’ve stayed well past midnight if there hadn’t been another group of diners waiting on our table. Management very kindly and professionally informed us and we departed. Great food, great evening!!

Went to Bostonia on New Years Eve. Therefore, undestandably, there was a special menu operating which meant we spent more than we usually would. Our server was excellent and happy to engage in long discussions re craft beers with my husband. The food was good and the atmosphere was great. Particularly liked having live piano music.

It was awkward because we arrived 2min before open and were outside in the pouring rain. When the hostess opened the door she let it almost shut in my friends face... didn’t hold the door open at all.
We had to wait over 15min for our coffee that we ordered as it had been forgotten to be made which is a genuine mistake. But then we were never offered refills on our $4.00 coffee! Our server offered to the man sitting two tables away from us and then just skipped us over. Disappointing. The food was very tasty and would return for that.

The food & drink were outstanding! The seared Scallops were excellent, as was the crab encrusted Cod. The garlic spinach in lemon sauce was perfect! Our waiter was attentive and spot on with recommendations!

Although many tables available when I arrived, they decided to stick me at table next to the door. Every time it opened opened, blasted with arctic chill. Moscow mule was undrinkably bad, waiter just shrugged and kept on tab. Noise was to the point you couldn’t hear....no ribs for menu, it’s a Thursday during Holidays. How do you run out by 6 pm?

But the most incredible part? After we received final check, literally 5 minutes later the waiter tells us we need to leave, our reservation is only good for two hours and we were approaching it. Not over. Getting close to! WTF

RUN RUN RUN From this place. I have never berm treated so rudely. Not worth it, by fat. Pompous

Food and service were good. Unfortunately, they had an event upstairs, so we had to be seated by the bar. It was so loud, we had a hard time talking to each other.
