This is my fourth time at this restaurant. While I have been pleased with the service and the food, the atmosphere has declined. The bar is extremely loud and I had a hard time holding a conversation with my table. I have sat away from the bar area and haven’t had this issue. In the future, I will request a seat away from the bar and would suggest others do the same.

The lobster roll was very small but tasted good. The Clam Chowder was outstanding. The menu on Open Table should specify when lunch end and dinner begins. I was planning on ordering app ne of the dinner entrees but I was too early.

Excellent food, cocktails, and service. We were seated in the bar area which was exceptionally loud. We had to shout to be heard but the rest of our experience was great.

My lunch, a salmon sandwich, was delicious. Service was somewhat mayhemic, but our server was very nice. I'd say it's a typical downtown Boston place to have a sitdown lunch. I thought it was a little pricey, but what isn't these days?

Had a lovely Mother's Day brunch here- the Bloody Mary bar is so fun. Wish that they had extra horseradish to add in but I'm just being picky. It's well stocked. My mom loved her smoked salmon benedict and loved the band playing too, so that's a win!

Over priced and we were treated like second class citizens. We were seated in the upstairs back room when there were plenty of tables downstairs and even in the front of the upstairs. And this was WITH reservations, which weclearly didn’t need. Disappointing to say the least

We've lived in the Boston Area for 5 years and have gone to BPH every year for Mother's Day Brunch and we've never had a bad meal/experience. Also, the service has been consistently great. We most recently sat in Siena's section and she made an already outstanding meal even better.

Have now been to this lovely spot several times - spouse, family, business associates - for lunch and dinner.
The food is novel, fun, and tasty; the service is excellent; the value is great. Sorry, guys - the place is just too loud! At dinner it was oppressive. Thank goodness my last visit was at lunch, when I would not have thought we needed to be blasted by music (but the management apparently thinks their guests should not be able to talk to each other) and we could blessedly dine outside, which was a very nice meal, but maybe out last for a while.

Thank you OpenTable. We were walking around Boston trying to find a place to eat and came upon the Bostonia restaurant and tried to walk in but without a reservation the wait was going to be 45-60 minutes. I then went on my trusty OpenTable app to find another place to eat and saw I could make an OpenTable reservation and be seated immediately. I made the reservation and then walked back in and we were seated in less than 5 minutes.

OK, now to the restaurant...the food was very good and our server was very nice and attentive. The Boston baked beans were very good. Would definitely eat there again.

This a frequent brunch spot for my friends and I. Sundays they have live music, but not super loud. Gives a great vibe. Wait staff is super attentive. And they're bloody mary bar might be one of the best in the city. Food is always delicious too!

The staff was amazing- one of our party lost a gemstone from her ring while we were at dinner and the staff were very supportive in helping us find it. When the initial search came up empty,the manager turned up the house lights for our search and one of the front of house gentlemen found the stone a couple tables away!

Our waiter brought over a glass of champagne to celebrate!

We will definitely be back.

Bartender was very attentive and pleasant. Drinks a little more $$ for the pour size. Friends from out of town had lobster rolls (of course), which were pretty skimpy. Waitress wasn’t very pleasant but overall had decent experience. With so many options in that area (Financial District) probably won’t rush back.

Appetizers were All very good, however the entree’s did not stack up. Get the meatballs, salt n vinegar wings and the cheese plate. Entree’s were all good but for the price I expected more.
The restaurant is in a great location and has an eye catching interior. Great for drinks and apps.
The service was average. Waiter was attentive but hard to understand with the moderate background noise.
Absolutely will return to watch a game or meet friends at the bar.
