Made a reservation through open table. Showed up and found out the restaurant wasn’t even open. Couldn’t find another place to eat before the event at TD garden so went without dinner. Tried to book another restaurant through open table, but the restaurant somehow said I attended my reservation even though they weren’t open, so the app wouldn’t let me double book somewhere else. Terrible experience, thanks for that. Update your damn availability.

They didn’t ask for my reservation, they didn’t celebrate or congratulate my wife for the note I left, the food is really amazing, the rest is bad….

This restaurant is relatively new and this was our first visit. We were very favorably impressed. The quality of food and service were very high as was the ambiance. Prices are very reasonable for this quality dining experience downtown. The chef was making the rounds in the dining room and was clearly working hard to make sure his guests were having a good time and enjoying his food.

Soooo...they never seem to have waiters. I've been here on multiple business trips and I am always served by a bartender. Last time the sides for my dish were cold. Experience could be great...but not yet.

As a local Bostonian, I have now eaten here multiple times for both Breakfast and Dinner. The French toast, sticky Bun and Steak and eggs are INCREDIBLE for brunch and the bloody Mary’s are mixed perfectly. The calamari and wings are an absolute MUST for dinner appetizers and are FANTASTIC!! The people are wonderful and the location is perfect for anyone visiting the TD garden (basically across the street). It is a 5 minute walk from the North End and Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall and is right in between North Station and Haymarket T stations for those who want to enjoy some cocktails without having to worry about driving or spending money on Uber. Overall I’d give this restaurant an A+ and will be coming back this week!
