Food and service were excellent!!!
Paté appetizer was a little surprising. It came out as a grilled “ hamburger “ thing. Still tasty, but not what I expected paté to be. Very spacious and nice atmosphere

Went for a business lunch with three others. Had a reservation for 11:30; started to fill up closer to Noon. Service was attentive. Had clam chowder which was very good and cobb salad which was fair. Others had lobster rolls which looked good and that people enjoyed.

Pretty much everyone agreed that they would return for drinks and lunch; maybe not a dinner destination.

Went for Sunday brunch. We got a table with a really cool view of State Street. I got the lobster benedict and it delicious. They have live music and a Bloody Mary bar. The server was awesome and the manager Jose was fantastic. GET THE SWEET POTATO BURBON GLAZED DONUTS.

I originally reserved a table for brunch downstairs by the band but didn't get that. We ended up at a table upstairs and the restaurant is so lovely so it was not a huge deal, just a bit down that we didn't get what we originally asked for. My friend called the morning of to reserve a bottle of champagne as a surprise for our table and they said they would do it first thing when we sat down. However, they never did and my friend had to go to the hostess and remind them so that was a bit out of our way. Other than that, food was amazing as always as well as the band!

Very underwhelming for a restaursnt with 4 star reviews on yelp. Food was not at the standard I was expecting and service left a bit to be desired. It is a cool place that would be fun for happy hour but if you are a foodie this is not the place for you.

I was in Boston for a business conference and my group of four people had a 8:45pm reservation on a Thursday night. When we were seated I noticed that the musical entertainment was taking a break and I honestly thought, “Great, live music.” However, when the music started back up it was so loud that we could literally not hear each other talk. Management said they would turn the volume down but I never noticed a difference. Otherwise, it was a great experience.

Very noisy when we walked in, but we were seated in the back so the noise level was better. Good music. Service was very good. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious! I had scallops that were cooked to perfection. My husband had cod that was wonderful and the sides complimented perfectly. No room for dessert. Prices were competitive with other places we’ve eaten in Boston.

Had a lovely Easter Brunch here - really nice menu, very reasonable pricing - my only complaint is the noise level - there was a singer/guitar player on that day and the volume was way too high for my taste -made conversation with my family difficult

Great location easily accessible from anywhere in the city on State Street. Ambiance of an authentic classic Boston restaurant/pub, with a creative & eclectic menu and Great Food. Friendly & attentive host, bar and wait staff. Perfect location for a quick business lunch or long visit with friends over a meal and/ or cocktails. 2nd floor features additional bar and dining area , great for quiet dining or private functions.

Do not get the Lobster Mac and Cheese or the crab dip with chips. The lobster was fresh, but they used the wrong combination of cheeses. Wasnt baked, just seemed like they microwaved the cheese over the pasta. Only good thing was the sweet potato doughnuts.

Went for dinner on a Saturday night. Ate upstairs at high tables near the bar. The noise level was very high as there was a good number of 20 somethings getting drinks at the bar. The food was excellent, I had the sirloin and my girlfriend had scallops and we both thought it was great

Busy night as St Patrick’s day but food and service didn’t suffer. Really had a lovely time. A great memory as we came here from the UK and it was our favourite nights in Boston.

We were so glad that we made a reservation because there was a huge crowd lined up outside. But the staff was great and whisked us right in. The place was crazy because of St. Patrick’s Day and that was the reason for the noise level. Our waiter was great! He had to squeeze in and out of people to get by but always had a smile on his face. He was very attentive! The French onion dip and homemade chips were awesome. My son got the charcuterie board and said it was delicious. Here is the not so great part, my husband and I both got the Lobster Roll sandwich, mine was hot and my husband’s was cold by design. It was not only the worst lobster roll I’ve ever had but it was one of the worst sandwiches I’ve ever had. Maybe an off night.

Awesome time at Bostonia on St. Patrick's Day!
We made a reservation for a late brunch for 8 people and received spectacular service, food and just generally had a great day celebrating there! The staff was attentive and fast with drinks and food, even though the place was absolutely slammed. I've dined here at least 5 times now and Bostonia has continuously delivered excellent experiences!

We came to Boston to celebrate my sons 16 birthday and went to Bostonia for brunch on a Sunday. All I can say is outstanding!! The service was remarkable and the food was so so good. I highly recommend the sweet potato doughnuts with bourbon glaze and the build your own Bloody Mary bar. I wish we were going to be here another weekend so we could go to brunch again!

Went for the Bloody Mary bar. You could tell everything was sitting out for quite some time. Service was slow and poor. Bartender had to check with waitress about running a gift card. Lied and said they didn’t take them but when he swiped to try it, it worked. Had to call and get it reversed. Don’t bother at this establishment.

We brought my mother inlaw to Bostonia Public House for brunch. My mother inlaw was celebrating her 83rd birthday. We loved it! Ambience, live music, and delicious food and drink. Our waitress was amazing and she made this occasion very special. Excellent food- loved the sweet potato donuts to start. Had lobster Benedict and lobster frittata. Top notch all around. We will return.

The lobster salad rolls were terrible. No flavor. The meat was cut into small pieces and it is very small portion. The hamburgers were overcooked even after sending one back. The Salmon was very good. We will not return.
