The food and service is always great! One of my fave brunch spots!
Great food and service but very loud music and chatter made it hard to talk at the table.
Brunch was great! Service was a bit slow... but the food was very good!
Chris is always an amount guy and so is the server with the brown hair and same height with tats; they always make me come back to Brownstone :).
Amazing food and excellent service! Will definitely be back in the future.
They didn't have a few things on the menu, but the service was great and very personalized.
We had a great waiter. The truffle fries were fabulous. The main courses were just so so. Nice place for a group though.
I love this place, food is delicious and have really healthy choices, service was amazing! I can’t wait to go back again.
Our server, Alex, was fantastic. The food and cocktails were excellent. The manager was incredibly friendly and dressed impeccably. It is a little loud in there, but nowhere near a deal-breaker for my girlfriend and I. We definitely plan on returning.
The food and drinks were delicious! I highly recommend the bloody mary. Our waitress was really awesome too, I was with a party of seven and she made the whole experience a lot of fun.
Went here for brunch on a Saturday around 11 and had a party of about 8 and we were sat almost immediately. I had made the reservation only like 15 minutes prior. So very last minute. And everything was very good no one had any complaints whatsoever
I love this place. Great food, nice ambience, and excellent service. Our server, Jocelyn, was exceptional!
Extremely slow service, super loud. Greasy food.
Food was good but I really wanted french onion soup and tuna tacos. Both in the open table menu but not on the menu when we got there Our server was great!
I found it too loud and dark...ok if you want just a drink but not as a nice relaxing meal after a day touring the city.
The young hostess who greeted us at the front was warm, personable, and a great person to be greeting people to a business. Some great, original, tasty choices for Sunday brunch. Waitress didn't come around much which wasn't good (as it really wasn't too busy but we needed things - ketchup at table was empty and there were no other bottles around, we wanted more drinks, etc) but overall a great experience.
Great for meeting a friend after work or coming in on the train to Back Bay Station. Reasonably priced, good cocktails, very good entrees. I had the Peking Duck, friend had the Salmon.
Server was great, knew the menu and got our food out quickly so we could make the Bruins game in time!
Space was nice and the service was good. The food came out almost immediately after we ordered and unfortunately was cold, indicating they premade some of these dishes and let them sit. A bit disappointing in that aspect, but a good space for chatting with people over brunch and the staff was very good about accommodating our seating preferences.
Food was terrible. Coffee worse!
Our waiter was so kind. I don't know what his name was but he had glasses and really took the time. Food was great. A little loud, but it was Friday night! So fair play!
The noise is very energic. The service is bad
Great Sunday brunch our waiter was Alex he was so helpful & knows his food & drinks we had a great experience will be back for sure!!!
We’ve been here once before and had amazing service at dinner. But today, while our brunch was delicious, our server was very consistently rude in answering our questions (normal ones like, “do you have skim milk for my tea?”... which FYI they don’t). A friend at the table avoided making a substitution on her meal because she literally didn’t want to argue with the server
Disappointing service but I’m hoping it was just an off day for our server.
Jessie was amazing! Bacon is unreal too.
Went on Sunday morning for brunch during a snowstorm, and was empty, which I like! Tried to go on another morning, but was packed and couldn't get in. Had fast and friendly service. Food was good, some entrees were average and then over priced. Brunch food: Potatoes were amazing, and the Crispy French Toast Sticks, were terrific (very sweet and crunchy), the Hangover Pasta was good, but got old of flavor. Overall had a nice little quiet breakfast!
Girls night at a local bar. Bar ambiance.
Great meal and great value!
Staff was a bit rude when we showed up with a stroller. While they eventually accommodated it when I told them I was surprised it was such an issue as the restaurant surely had to be compliant with ADA. We had to wait a bit 45 min past our reservation as apparently 2 tables could accommodate the stroller. One was right by the door which wasn’t going to work on a cold day with a baby. Not really a family friendly place. The food was good. Service was okay though we did get ignored for awhile when we were waiting for our check. Not likely to return.
What a great little surprise. My wife and I dropped my son off at college and searched OpenTable for a local breakfast place. We found Brownstone and went. It was a very cozy, but vibrant atmosphere. The menu was fantastic, which included one of the best Bloody Mary drinks we've ever had. The entrees were fantastic, fresh and very filling. Our server was very attentive and fun. We both loved it and highly recommend it.
Great brunch atmosphere with an awesome waiter that recommended the side of crunchy French toast for the table. Best recommendation!
The service was pretty bad. It took so long for the waitress to come around and get our order and then it took 45 min to get our food out to us.
Had brunch here with a party of 4, saw it on OpenTable's best of Boston. We had a snafu at the beginning with service, with two servers not sure who was taking care of our table, making our first round of drinks arrive 25 minutes after we ordered them. However after that, things improved and our server was friendly. Our food was good, portion sizes decent, and the bloody Mary's kind of weak alcohol wise. The space is fun and lively, like a neighborhood pub, and they were playing rugby on the TV's.
The food was delicious and even though they were out of goat cheese which meant two of the dishes our table wanted to order weren’t available, the food we did end up choosing was really yummy. Our server was courteous and prompt with drink refills as well as knowledgeable about the menu. We enjoyed our meal and would definitely recommend this restaurant. Can’t wait to come back and try the Mac and cheese too!
Crunchy French toast was great to share. All the food was great!
It wasn't crowded, but it was loud, with lots of televisions. Not my scene.
Went for brunch, it was in full sports bar mode and very loud. Tvs on, speakers blaring the game, and patrons yelling over the speakers. Impossible to have a conversation, so my party was disappointed.
That said, on non-game days, the atmosphere is nice, food fairly priced and tasty, and service very good. I’ll go back, but will check to ensure they’re not crowded with game enthusiasts first.
Been there several times. Great place with a relaxed atmosphere. Service has always been spot on and food is great. My most recent experience I had the BEST steak tips of my life!
Food is always good, service was a bit slow today. Always a good choice for a big group for lunch with coworkers.
Group of 6 visiting from Canada. Thanks to our server Kelsie for her patience with us “newbies”.
Portions were generous ... nice char-grilled wings, salmon, steak tips, truffle fries and especially the mac & cheese were solid.
