Food was mediocre and overpriced. Clearly a tourist trap. Tables were too close so I'm fairly sure they weren't abiding by COVID safety guidlines.

Great food and great service. We had to make the trip in because they were donating 100% of their gross sales to their employees. A truly amazing thing to do ---shows great ownership and management.

We’ve had Gabby as our server a couple times now and man does she add to the experience. She’s incredibly attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. The food here is always top notch, and we’ll be back many more times. Highly recommend the wings and the sweet potato donuts!

Definitely worth the money, although it was a bit pricey. We didn’t wait long for our food. Very impressed. Loved the 2010s playlist in the background.

Food was ok- seating was at the back facing the kitchen which was noisy. Was told we'd get a seat at the bar when I checked in (15 min early) and they did not deliver this.

I’ve been to Bostonia countless times - pre/present covid, brunch, lunch, drinks, dinner. It’s always high quality dining, universal menu, great music, and professional service. It’s a place that I’ll always recommend to friends and family visiting Boston

Good/safe options for both indoor and outdoor dining. Their new $4 drink special is a no brainer for a reason to stop in. The fried chicken sandwich was worth it! Service was outstanding and it’s a great place for conversation.

I always love the drinks here - especially the cup of joe. we were sat at a table and given no menu or QR code. and often get forgotten about when waiting for more drinks or to order food. overall once we ordered food did come out super fast and was amazing. Anything on their menu with sweet potatoes is sooo good! overall 4/5 experience.

Both the Scallops and Bolognese were both delicious. Outstanding waitstaff. Sweet Potato donuts were a worthy end to a great dining experience. Great experiences are even more appreciated when you chose to dine out during the pandemic!

Hard to give this place a review because I booked a spot at the restaurant but when I showed up the restaurant was closed even though I received several reminders about my reservation. We ended up taking our business elsewhere

Have always loved Bostonia and had phenomenal experiences here can not say enough good things about it but I’m still always overly satisfied with the drinks, food, and service as if it were my first time there. This time around one of the people in my party had never been there and the way I described it was incredible food, the best espresso martinis you’ve ever had, and they’re always the most personable service of any restaurant I can think of whether you’re at a table or the bar and this time was no exception. Rob was incredible absolute top notch service if he wasn’t busy working we would have asked him to join us for brunch. Bostonia never disappoints it continuously surprises me with the level of excellence they provide. Do yourself a favor and go to Bostonia for brunch, lunch, dinner, or an app and drinks you’ll be ecstatic you did.

After a very good experience on the previous Saturday, we were looking forward to enjoying a weeknight out, with less of a tourist crowd.

We have also been trying to do our part to support restaurants during COVID. How disappointing it was to have the Thurs night B team in the upstairs area neglecting their customers. They were far more interested in texting on their cell phones, watching the Thurs night football game, and talking amongst themselves (3 staff members, plus kitchen staff for a small crowd).

Could not believe the poor service for a $200 tab for two of us during COVID times. Kitchen did a fine job, but the service was awful. Much better alternatives in the downtown area.
