I was looking for a casual place to meet friends before a concert at Fenway. There was enough variety on the menu to satisfy everyone. Great beer and drink choices. Server was friendly and helpful. Food was great!
Good, fresh interesting food (roasted cauliflower app was tasty), and we got good recommendations
We had reservation for 11:30 on Sunday and we got there on time but there was about a 10 minute wait for our table of five to be ready.
If you are considering this place for Sunday brunch...make that online reservation. It will save you a lot of time.
The breakfast potatoes are absolutely amazing..
Seasoned amazing well... I had short stack banana pancakes too which were absolutely phenomenal! Absolutely all hand done...so soft and warm and fluffy!
If you have kids they absolutely have grilled cheese available if that's a favorite and it's a serious cheesey grilled cheese. My son absolutely loved it! His french fries were bland but didn't notice with all the ketchup.
This is not a place for quiet on a Sunday morning. My husband sat across from me and a hard time hearing...which works awesome for kids!
Highly recommend for a family breakfast...parking on the street is rough later in the morning so just prepare yourself for a $22 parking fee in the garage.
Forgot half our order. Meal took a LONG time and came out at different times. They were really understaffed. Only saw one waitress in the whole (full) restaurant and she was also working the bar. They comped half our meal, but still not the best experience.
Noise level was very high... all the windows and doors were open and the activity on the street was at an all time high! No need to have the windows and doors open when the air conditioner was working well. Food and service was excellent!
Yummy for brunch. Great drinks and good location. Eggs Sammy was delicious
We were staying at a hotel nearby and decided to try Brownstone for brunch. It was amazing!
Perfect serving size, laid back atmosphere, fast & friendly service. We will be returning!!
Very friendly service... erogenous portions of delicious food... something for every taste.
A very Good neighborhood spot for brunch or dinner.
Breakfast was awesome and great drinks too
Servers were a little unfriendly.
Friendly helpful waitress and service. Great experience overall.
Brownstone is one of the best amenities that comes with living in the Back Bay. You won’t need a Visa to get a reservation, but you’ll hardly notice the charge if you offer your own Visa when you leave. They take MasterCard, too.
This was our 2nd time coming to Brownstone for brunch, and it remains our favorite. Great atmosphere and a menu of quality basics.
This place was great. Awesome food and kid friendly. Great value on the kids meals. The ham was super tasty. Open windows on a nice day made for great daytime ambiance. The French Toast & Chicken was amazing. I docked a star for the service because after a phone call and being specific in my OT reservation I was clear about our need for a low table and high chairs. When we arrived the host wasn’t ready for us. Luckily one low table happened to be available. But she still scrambled for high chairs. Standing around waiting with kids is always a little hectic. Also, our waiter, although very nice, only checked on us once at the beginning of our meal. No drink refill for me before we had to tab out. Nonetheless, I highly recommend this place.
Great food, Great Vibes,Great service I’m sure to be back!
I enjoyed the artist that performed. The ambiance was great. I made reservations and was able to walk right in and be seated. The waitress was very attentive and quick.
The brunch food is pretty darn good, but the slow service, broken order/receipt computer system, incorrect check and loud noise level make it hard to enjoy.
Only a handful of folks there when we arrived- mostly drinkers. Our food took over 30 mins- fries over salted and cold- burger not bad but bun was stale.
Waitress came by a couple times and then took 15 mins to return our credit card.
I knew we should have left when it was obviously dead inside. Oh well- never will return
The waiter outright lied about serving food. I asked for fries and was told that the restaurant does not serve them on the weekend. A half hour later I just so happen to look at another patron who had... fries. Why lie?
My order was also wrong and had to be taken back. The tomatoes in my eggs looked expired.
We were there for brunch. Service was terrible.
The server Alex was so nice- went across the street for chocolate milk for my son who was having a bad morning. Food was great too!
Great food and excellent service. Definitely would recommend for breakfast or brunch.
very nice brunch spot, reasonably priced. definitely a place to go back to.
Delicious food for brunch and really great service. The ambience is very nice as well.
Food was good. Service was not very good. Waitress did not bring maple syrup for French toast, did not bring cream for coffee, forgot to bring OJ and no sugar for coffee. Other than that, it was good.
Delicious food at reasonable prices and our waiter was wonderful
We went for breakfast, definitely make a reservation it fills up fast.
Overall fine. Not bad but not great either. Service was slow even though the place was mostly empty. It was my second time having brunch here and both times the food was just fine, including the coffee.
Nice location and vibe. Food was very average, if less so. The chicken in the sandwich is a thin slice, and the shrimp pasta special came out cold. The pasta special was also a terrible value for what was served. Waitress was friendly enough. Would probably not go back.
The food was enjoyable and the ambiance was nice for a morning brunch as they restaurant opened their windows along the street to let in sunlight and fresh air. However, our waitress was incredibly inattentive. We had to get up and go find our own water and ketchup because she failed to bring it over when asked. Could have been a nice meal if she had not been our waitress.
Food was great. Service was quick and efficient. Very good dining experience
Great brunch menu, lots of options, quick service, good for groups. Could improve the coffee options.
Not really a place to sit down at a table and order food as a dining experience. This is a loud bar that happens to serve middling to poor food.
If you want to have a conversation- this is not the place, way too loud! The food was very good and a great value for its cost.
Server forgot to put our food in. Made several mistakes with the order. The manager had to support just and had to notice all the simple asks from our table of 8 --- refill on water??
Very little eye contact or interaction from the server or manager.
The Vegetarian with us was served food that she could not eat -- despite making her food restrictions clear when ordering.
The food took VERY long.
There was no apology for the long wait.
Would not come back.
Mother’s Day brunch. Excellent food and service!
Went there for brunch with girlfriends. The waitress was fantastic and has an amazing memory for orders (didn't write anything down and got our orders correct including substitutions / dietary needs). Mimosas were amazing and the food was excellent. Highly recommend this place for brunch.
Food was quite good and our servers we prompt and courteous. Would go again. NB: The lack of gluten free bread was the only real disappointment.
Great place for lunch. Salads, Burgers and Chicken sandwich are very good. Location for our office is great and place is not too crowded. I would recommend for Brunch or lunch and I will definitely be going back!
