I don’t know if I caught them on an off day. I’m not a review sort of person unless I feel compelled....I feel compelled lol. Our waiter was good and that’s about it. I didn’t necessarily feel welcomed from the moment we entered. My friend and I ordered the lobster roll with fries. The fries were overly salty and such a small amount...the lobster was over cooked and “chewy,” it did not taste fresh at all. I normally get my lobster roll from Eventide in Fenway (so good) considering the price point was similar I assumed I’d enjoy this one but I couldn’t finish eating it. The Brioche bun was good though. Our bill came out to about $70 plus tip for the rolls, fries and bottled water. I left unsatisfied and hungry.

The table, server and the food was delicious and reasonably priced. This could become our regular downtown Boston hangout.

The waiter wasn’t the most joyous to be serving us. And I get that, but not he didn’t even crack a smile or give us an ounce of being personable. It was my birthday and one of the first times back in a restaurant given Covid, plus my parents were in town from out of state. I picked this place for the menu options of the lobster rolls to treat ourselves and they were good not great, subpar. The company I was with made the night special but considering that this review is for the restaurant, the place (food, service, ambiance from start to finish) sad to say, did not make my night.

Mixed opinions in our group. The pasta was good, the fish and chips were good...skip the lobster roll and the clam chowder. You can find much better lobster rolls and claim chowder elsewhere.

Great food & great service. It was LOUD and I didn’t like the tall chairs as I have a knee issue. we weren’t asked for a seating preference and it would have been so nice to have a regular table downstairs or outside rather than just being rushed upstairs upon arrival & not asked anything.

Reception was great. Quickly accomodated from outside to inside. Waitress started off strong, but then when trying to get the check she disappeared. We would have had another drink, but due to timing, we needed to to leave.
Would recommned and would try again!

I have visited this restaurant frequently and it has always been good. For this occurrence, we would have thought that for $18 extra for lobster on a salad, it would have been a larger portion.

We’re visiting Boston and I was told to try a lobster roll. I chose the hot one at my server’s suggestion (despite it being over 90F out!). Not sure how to compare it to others, but it was FULL of lobster, although I thought it was kind of dry. My daughter was very pleased with her veggie burger and fries.

The girls you check in with for your reservation we’re too busy gossiping to let our waitress know we were outside. End up waiting around 20 minutes to be greeted and given water. Our waitress was lovely and keep apologizing to us.

We had a delicious dinner here! Boys enjoyed burgers while I had a set of sides (Mac and cheese as well as the best creamed spinach ever). Only wish they had New Zealand wines!

Our server, Alex, was excellent. He was attentive but we never felt rushed. Food was great. The restaurant music was a bit loud, so it was hard to hear Alex (he had a mask on, of course). Other than that it was a great!

Excellent dining experience. Cocktails were delicious and the food, I had the crab crusted cod, was cooked perfectly. I highly recommend this restaurant and can’t wait to come back.

Food was disappointing. Clam chowder and mac and cheese were decent, brussels sprouts were not good. Too tangy/spicy.

My husband and I went to celebrate that we got married and we wanted to eat something delicious, we saw the reviews in Bostonia so we decided to go but we really regret about it, our reservation was 8:45 and at 9:00 we walked out of the place, the waitress attitude was poor, he didn’t even great us, he only ask for what we wanted to drink and eat, if you work in costumer service you know that attitude is what makes the customer comfortable. Hope that it was only the day and that maybe he was tired but that’s not the way! We are very sad!

My boyfriend and I visited from out of state for a mini getaway trip and had Bostonia on our list. It didn’t disappoint. Had delicious french onion dip to start, then the salmon and seared scallops for entrees. Called the night with my favorite meal of the night, the bourbon glazed sweet potato donuts. Do not leave without these! Great food and great service. Would highly recommend to visit.

My real issue with this restaurant was the noise level. We were two couples who hadn't seen each other (thank you Covid)in a long time and we had a lot to catch up on.
It was almost impossible to carry on a conversation because it was so loud in there!
