The outside patio was not very welcoming the table was very wobbly. The waiter was kind but didn’t know the difference between two different types of wine. My 14 year old big son asked for just plain Mac m cheese and was brought out a small meal which came before everyone else’s meal. After reading the reviews I was expecting more from the experience.

We went in for Mother’s Day and were early. I had forgotten to tell the restaurant that my mother in law used a cane and couldn’t make it up the stairs. They sat us early and swapped our table to a space on the first floor without any issue. Our server was spectacular. We started with the to die for sweet potato waffle fries. My MIL has eggs Benedict, spouse had Gluten Free Steak Frites and I enjoyed the lobster Mac and cheese. Our mimosa’s were perfect. Finished off with a delicious gluten free chocolate torte to split. It was a perfect way to spend our Mother’s Day brunch. We will be back! Thank you to the team for an amazing meal and experience.

Took my mother there for Mother’s Day and had Justin as our bartender/server he was super attentive and made sure we wanted for nothing. Food didn’t take long to come out and was SOOOOOOO good! Both managers Jose and Norman came by more than once to make sure everything was satisfactory. Will definitely be going there again.

slightly disappointed for a restaurant with such a high rating and excellent reviews. food was good, not great. Atmosphere was loud and not suited for a relaxing night out. Wouldn't go back, would try something different next time I am in Boston

Staff is always excellent. Drinks were fabulous! They updated the Boston Mayor wall. My only complaint was that the air conditioning was on (on May 2nd) and it was colder inside than outside. Other than that it was excellent. Would definitely come back.

Joe P was our server and he was absolutely fantastic!! This was my second time at Bostonia and Joe P has rocked it each time! He recommended the hot girl summer and it was so good! I really hope they make it a regular menu item because it’s the perfect summer drink!! 10/10 recommend especially if you have Joe P as your server!!

Visiting Boston for a few days, ate at Bostonia on Monday night, ate at a couple of good restaurants on Tuesday and Wednesday, but went back to Bostonia for our last night on Thursday. Very good choice.

Had such a great experience! The staff was very friendly and attentive. My server was super helpful with finding me the perfect beer. The clam chowder is outstanding, and you have to try it with hot sauce! I was definitely unsure about it, but my server recommended it and WOW! Did not disappoint. The lobster roll was also super good and had a lot of flavor, and at a decent price. Even the side salad was tasty! Overall this is a really cool spot with GREAT food, and I’ll definitely be back next time I’m in Boston!

This place had good brunch food, but absolutely not worth the price. My iced coffee was $8 which I did not know about until the check came. Egg sandwich on a croissant was $17 and not great quality. Definitely not worth coming again.

I ordered the warm lobster roll. It was tasty but I was expecting more lobster in the small roll than it was given.

First city dining experience since the pandemic. They did a great job setting up the restaurant and worked hard to keep people comfortable. We were never rushed, received great server recommendations and had a terrific meal.

This was our first experience at Bostonian Public House and it definitely won’t be our last! From the beautiful decor, attentive service and mind blowing food, this was the perfect spot for a date! The drinks were excellent, not too strong but didn’t slack on the pour. The Ghost Malone was incredible and the bartender new how to shake it up! Would totally recommend if you’re in the city!

Had friends in for the day and wanted to take them somewhere close to my home that is classic Boston dining. The lobster rolls were excellent. Both the Hot and cold The noise level was extremely loud today. We usually sit upstairs and don’t experience the noise level that the downstairs has. The service was excellent I wish I could remember the waitresses name. She was great. Overall my friends enjoyed it but were glad to go back to my condo so we could talk without screaming.

Fourth visit - and still lovely. I'd never been seated upstairs, but the space is lovely and you feel comfortable with the arrangements given these COVID times. Staff was on point and I will continue frequent this restaurant.

Service was above and beyond. Due to the covid pandemic our large party could not sit together. They went above and beyond to make our experience great and moved tables as close together as possible to make our experience memorable.
