There are three options for seating: Standard (Indoors), High-Top (Indoors), and Outdoors. If one of these options does not appear, it is because we are currently booked for that type of seating during the date & time you are seeking. The maximum party size currently allowed by the state is 6 and you will be required to wear a mask when not at the table. We ask that guests do not exceed 1.5 hours per table to allow us time to properly sanitize in between seatings. We offer a ten minute grace period and ask that you call us if you will be running late or your reservation may be cancelled. All outdoor patio reservations are subject to being canceled in the event of severe rain. Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Everything was awesome! Best meal we have had in a while. The braised beef cheek and chicken thighs were the big winners of the night. But word to the wise, parking is non existent, and if you are more than 10 mins late they give your table away. Even if you call, do get there early.

Both of us got the chicken and waffles. The chicken in both orders was very disappointing. Sadly, it was overcooked and dry. I kept wondering if it was white meat instead of dark because of the moisture level.

The experience was great and the food was delicious. Our server was also awesome as well. The weather was great. Would definitely come here again. Parking however is a little difficult considering it’s on commonwealth and around the corner from Newbury Street.

Tables crowded together so it was hard to not listen to neighboring conversations. Great food, expensive for tiny tapas serving sizes.

This is one of the best restaurants in Boston for sure! Every dish is perfectly balanced and sooo delicious. This was our second time here and we will definitely be back. They handled the reservation and timing perfectly and have things spaced well for Covid. Thanks for a great night!

Wonderful!!! I had the best experience! I'm not sure of his position but Corvington (not sure about the spelling) was the BEST!! After a delay with my table being ready he made sure I was accommodated. He went over and beyond. A must is the Warm Honey Glazed Biscuits!!

We were seated for our reservation on time despite the place was mobbed on a Monday. Server was super helpful. Food came out hot and at the right pace. Catfish was our favorite but all the food was so good. We ordered 8 dishes total I believe and she coursed them very well. All of her recommendations were on point. Would definitely return and look forward to them opening in Watertown.

The whole overall experience was amazing. Food and drinks were great, we loved every entree that came out. Had to remind the waiters for a few things they forgot, but it was busy so it was very minor. Definitely can’t wait to come back.

Service was excellent, believe we were helped by Armando.. meal was good value when accounting for the quality and taste of the food. Will definitely be going back again for brunch, as there were more menu items and cocktails that we didn't get to try that sounded delicious. Would recommend to anyone, especially those looking for a memorable meal with unique offerings (compared to most other Boston restaurants).

The wild mushroom hash was far too spicy. Three people in our party ordered this dish and nobody could eat it. Perhaps it was an off day in the kitchen for this dish. The pulled pork eggs Benedict and fried chicken were excellent.

The food was fantastic and our server was very nice and gave great recommendations. It was a lovely day to be outside enjoying brunch.

Biscuits were the best I've ever had and the chicken slider was amazing. Highly recommend the sweet potato side dish as well. Cocktails were on point.

We were on the outside edge of the upper patio so right on the path for servers and guests looking to check in for their reservations. I would have preferred to be in the lower patio or tucked in a little bit. Also got sat next to a bridal party who were really enjoying themselves so they were loud. But that wasn't the restaurants fault.

Stay-cation dine out. Overall great experience - food was very good ( perfectly cooked sword fish and shrimp cocktail, my son loved the fried chicken sliders) and ambiance/decor/location was unique: New Orleans vibe in a perfect Boston location. Reasonable prices. Only negative was noise in spite of COVID mandated fewer tables; regardless we will return and will bring / recommend to friends

My favorite place to eat! Especially outdoors because the surroundings are gorgeous. We loved the good so much we got a cookbook from them. And they had the chef sign it for us! So thoughtful of them! I highly recommend Buttermilk and Bourbon!
