Had lunch here today. There were not many salad choices on the menu. The Bacon Broccoli Caesar salad was ok. The Beyond Vegetable burger was very good. Will come back again to try the brunch because I heard it’s very good but will not come back for lunch again.

I’ve been here several times pre covid, and honestly this was my best experience yet. We sat outside (on the street side) Our server was phenomenal (wish I could remember her name), and the food was just as good, and better than I remember. The prices are slightly higher than my preferred cost for dining out, but the food is well worth it here. Will be back, and happy to support you guys in this difficult climate; keep up the stellar work!

Food was really great. Service was great and quick. Everyone very sensitive to COVID and felt very safe eating there. The sweet potato doughnuts for dessert are a must. Definitely would highly recommend!

Overall an excellent experience. Party of 4 and everyone enjoyed their choices. Big hits were the meatball app, chicken wing app (more like fried chicken), and all three desserts (sweet potato donuts, cheesecake and flourless chocolate cake). Only took off a star because they forgot to bring a salad out with the dinner and we were 1/2 way through eating before any waitstaff came by. Also one of our party was on a knee scooter and our table was on the second floor. If I had known it was a 2story restaurant I would have requested a table on the first level so he wouldn’t have to hop up and down the stairs.
I would definitely go back and recommend to friends.

Waited over 30 minutes to order drinks and food, did not receive eating utensils with our food and when the waitress came back with utensils she slammed it in the middle of the table and spilled our syrup and didn’t bother replacing it. Waitress barely came and checked on us and one of our orders never came.

We came here on Sunday with 2 other couples for brunch. We were seated promptly upstairs and very well socially distanced from other patrons. Our waitress was very friendly although a bit forgetful with things when we ordered, even brought the wrong beer, it was on tap so no one was too sure what kind it was but she quickly fixed this mistake when asked. I really enjoy the food and drinks here. They have a spicy margarita that is delicious if you like spicy. Overall a good experience and we will be back.

Meals at Bostonia are always the best. Service, not so much. We waited quite a while for our server- albeit she was very pleasant. Recommend speedier service.

At this time there are very few places to have breakfast or Sunday Brunch in Boston.
The Bostonia Public house is a good size facility with spaced seating and a phone app available menu that is easy to use. The food is good and service very good. I recommend this restaurant for breakfast or brunch.

we were looking for a cute place to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary and this wonderful place happened to have a reservation open for us with perfect timing. The cocktails were delicious, the food was fabulous( we had steak frites and the chicken and the seasoning was perfect) and they treated us to a flourless chocolate cake to celebrate the occasion. It was super close to our boat pickup to go back to our hotel and close to Quincy Market. We were very happy with the service, our waitress was on point and we had such an enjoyable evening.

My husband and I were in Boston for a little getaway. I should have done better investigating since most of the restaurants were either closed or booked. So glad that we were able to get a table here. The staff was careful to take all necessary precautions to ensure all diners safety. It was a little loud but still very enjoyable. Our food was delicious and our waiter Joey was wonderful. We will definitely come back to Bostonia next time we visit!!
