    The food was fine, although I expected something a little more special for the prices. Our orders came out very, very quickly. The staff was very friendly. Lovely cocktail menu. The lighting is *very* aggressive. There are essentially spotlights shining on the tables. It made for an uncomfortable experience. If the lighting was softer and didn't feel headache inducing I might return, but I won't.

    I had my birthday brunch here. Bostonia was very accommodating with my large party (11 guest) and the lobster Benedict was absolutely amazing as well as their banana foster French toast. Best I have had in Boston!

    Drinks, Service and ambiance fine. Food was minimal in quantity and quality. The prices promised much better. Tasteless small amount of salmon on soggy bagel. Minimal portions, unimaginably presented. Hope they can improve. Home fries okay.

    Someone puked all over the floor at the table next to us and no one noticed. We had to get the employees attention and after 5-10 minutes someone finally came back to us with a check so we could leave. The manager offered us a free dessert for the inconvenience which was so unprofessional for that manner of disruption during our dinner. Our server was amazing the entire time and offered to comp the entire dinner completely. The manager seemed like he has no idea what he was doing

    Not a bad meal. Service was good. My dish was somewhat salty and the pork chop was dry. I’d go back and c try a different dish. Meatballs were great as well as the sweet potato donuts.

    Must admit, it was very busy for New Years Day. This is to be expected. Ended up being forgotten about for a while. Wasn’t asked about meal, water not offered until check was given. Noticed others being offered comp drinks, but wasn’t given the option. First time and last time visitor 😞

    The Public House is one of my favorite places to eat, so we thought we’d try Brunch! The menu is fantastic and has a wide selection. Unfortunately, though, the Frittata I ordered was a little bit burnt on the outside, and food took almost 50 minutes to get to our table. It was New Year’s Day, and the place was quite busy, but usually when we go our meals come out 25-30 minutes after we sit down. Our server, Joe, was attentive and lovely, just seemed like he had a lot of tables as he was running around quite a bit, and it took a while for him to come over when we sat down. Other than that though, he was great! Definitely will continue to come for dinner, and maybe for brunch to try a new dish off the menu (the breakfast tacos sounded amazing). Atmosphere is always wonderful.

    Went for New Years Eve and we were given plenty of time to enjoy, however it took our server 45 minutes before delivering first round of drinks (2 cocktails and a soda) and appetizers. From then on the food and experience were exceptional. We were close to walking out and probably should have, but in the end the food made up for it.

    Can’t recommend this place enough! We started with the wings which were SO crunchy and flavorful. I had the cold lobster roll and it was probably the best I’ve ever had. Service was fantastic… our waiter was hilarious. Five stars!

    The service was terrible. Our actual server was okay but the hostesses were not accommodating and gave us such a difficult time when we, two groups, tried to get two tables next to each other even though there were plenty of open tables available.

    It’s a nice looking restaurant. Unfortunately there were several issues with trying to eat and drink here. I still gave them 4 stars because they made some effort to fix things. We sat down and two guests ordered signature cocktails off of their menu and the waiter returned 10 minutes later to let us know that they were missing ingredients for their own menu drinks. Then the same two guests (after much thought) decided to order the Coq Au Vin, they were immediately informed that there was a substitution that night for that dish, it was a duck dish. Why wouldn’t the waiter mention this 20 minutes earlier when we sat down? It’s not like they ran out. We also made it very clear that my daughter has a pine nut allergy so when she ordered something with pesto we made it very clear to HOLD the pesto. Her dish arrived with pesto all over the food so it had to go back. Last but not least we ordered cappuccino for desert and they informed us that their cappuccino machine was broken. Also, the entree took at least 45 minutes to arrive. So with all these issues we didn’t ask for anything. What did they offer? My daughter received a feee house salad while she waited for her dish to be remade and my girlfriend was offered one drink on the house. A dessert or two on the house would have been nice but at least they offered something for all of their shortcomings. We will probably give it another shot but not anytime soon.
