Our meal was delicious and the service was outstanding. I highly recommend Branchline.
Excellent food and atmosphere!
What a beautiful outdoor space! Had a very nice meal and time all around. Good food and we are looking forward to going back. A new spot and worth the extra minutes in car to get to. Had pea salad, mussels and chicken. Perfect for two.
Space is cute. Staff is lovely. Food was not good.
It was a beautiful day and outdoor seating allowed us to enjoy it. Food and drink was delicious (although there was no cold brew available). Our server was outstanding -- attentive, friendly but not intrusive.
Food and service were great. Nice casual restaurant.
I love this restaurant; the outdoor patio is lovely. You can chose high tops, regular tables, in the sun, in the shade, etc. Service is always excellent and was so today. Busy, so it felt lively, but not overcrowded. The food was very, very good and I highly recommend.
Great selection of beer and wine (and a few cocktails too). First time back in more than a year. Welcome menu additions. Food, drink, and service were excellent.
Sat outside on the covered patio. The service was excellent. I didn't love the piri piri chicken- it was well prepared but the sauce was lacking. The garlic french fries were excellent and the side of broccolini was ok, nothing special. I also didn't love the bread with chicken drippings starter that we ordered. It was a little bland. The sparkling rose was good and the tea, surprisingly, was excellent.
Love their outdoor patio - especially during Covid times. Feels romantic with the lighting (even though it's surrounded by parking). The appetizers and salads were really good. We had popcorn shrimp and avocado salad. The service was great even though they were challenged by rain that night. The main meals were not as good as the starters. Fine - but not memorable.
Always great. Consistent. Numerous entree choices.
Service was very slow. We waited 45-50 min for our food. The food very good.
We enjoyed our first visit to Branch Line. The chicken is as good as we have heard, and the service was excellent.
Always excellent. No complaints. Love it here. Pea salad my absolute favorite. Mussels were excellent. Chicken always a winner. Wine was good. Service was very good.
Very attentive staff, lovely setting (outdoors), careful COVID precautions and delicious food. Wonderful place to have a special meal.
Great to go with friends!
Delicious meal; fast service; great ambience; awesome outdoor patio.
The food was delicious, but the real standout was the service! Everyone who interacted with us, from the hostesses to wait staff to people who cleared the table were incredibly personable and helpful. The outdoor patio seating is comfortable and it's a lovely setting.
We sat inside and the noise level was so loud we couldn’t have a decent conversation. The service was good and if you love chicken this is the place for you.
Food was delicious. Service was perfect. Great and stylish use of the space.
Our first time at Branch Line. Very good food. Comfortable, pleasant, outdoor seating. Excellent service.
Menu very limited, steak tough, only beer and wine, no mix drinks!
Best outdoor patio in greater Boston
Nice to eat on the terrace. Actually, this review of 50 characters plus is annoying. I won't be doing this again.
finally got a reservation and t was well worth the wait! delicious!! cant wait to goback!
It was such a wonderful meal and lovely atmosphere.
Dirty. We left before ordering food.
Our party of five ate a breakfast brunch at Branch Line. The menu provided for a range of palates, with dishes ranging from the staples of a US-breakfast to more eccentric options. The service was excellent. It seemed that Branch Line had a work culture that fostered very positive, genuinely kind service.
Great service! Our server Becca(?) was very sweet & accommodating on one of the hottest nights of outdoor dining. Good was very good but can’t wait fir the full liquor license.
Always a great meal and a great staff
Nice outdoor patio and a good amount of food. Would have been a fine star if it weren't for the fact that our waiter completely neglected us. We sat at the table with our drinks before he finally came to take our orders. We also had to chase down another waiter to get our bill...
Thank goodness for Branch Line! A warm, welcoming restaurant with fabulous food and a wonderful wait staff. It will always be a favorite destination for my family and me.
A really lovely outdoor dining experience. Tables set up a good distance apart, nice decor. Food was excellent…all 4 of us ordered something different and all 4 dishes were great. The brownie sundae was amazing but we couldn’t finish it.
Our party of 4 all ordered different entrees and we were all very happy. I would suggest the chicken as it’s the house specialty. Love the piri- piri chicken.
Delicious as always
Not enough staff. Poor quality food. No service for a drink refill. Disappointing
best place to be as was obvious by the line waiting for a table
Branch Line has been our go to restaurant when we have visitors from out of state visit us. Everyone orders the roasted chicken and is never disappointed. But this time when we sat outside, it was too noisy to hear our conversation.
Excellent Wine List, Food, Décor & Service. HIGHLY recommend to everyone!!!!
The food was delicious and the staff was excellent. We will definitely return.
