We had a special request for them to serve a cake for my sister so I could ask her to be my maid of honor. They were so accommodating and executed the surprise perfectly. We really appreciated the extra care in service.

Great food, the one blemish to an otherwise banging experience was that the Nashville hot chicken was not spicy, it was perfectly crisp but not spicy. Otherwise meal, dessert, drinks were grand. Will definitely be back!

It was our first time at Buttermilk and Bourbon and it did not disappoint. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We were a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed the experience.

The food was amazing and I have no complaints about it! The service was okay, there were some long periods of time where no waiter came outside so we had to wait while to order but the waiters were very friendly. Also, the music was too quiet. Overall my experience was great!

The food was out of this world amazing! Since it is mostly tapas style, the tables need to be a tad bigger...we had four people at a super small table and couldn't fit what we ordered. We will definitely be back, as the food is irresistible!

I’ve been wanting to try Chef Santos’s food since it’s been open and finally had the pleasure to do so. The drinks were fantastic, and food was even better. Had 4 plates: Hot Nashville alligator fries, crawfish etouffee pies, 2 fried chicken sliders, and the famous honey glazed biscuits.

Only negative is parking, as long as you’re not rushing around like I did, you’ll be fine. I learned last night that running in a pea coat and boots in the rain to make it on time for your reservation is not ideal. I finally just caught my breath, 15hrs later.

Delicious food and really great cocktails, service was kind and attentive. Small-looking restaurant that surprisingly can hold large groups and we loved our time there. Very fun, creative place to go take friends.
Will note if looking for a disability- friendly layout- it would be difficult to maneuver and enter here (stairs on either side of entry, and narrow entry ways)

B&B is a wildly delicious and fun restaurant to eat at! Between all of the cocktails, small plates, and chicken, there is something for everyone. The atmosphere is talkative and a bit loud, it's a great place for a fun date, group dinner, and even just to stop in for a drink or two. One of my favorite places in Boston.

We waited 40 minutes for our check after our table had been cleared. Waitress walked by us multiple times and completely ignored us.

She also took 15 minutes to get our drink orders. She also forgot to put our biscuit order in.

We typically do not have this problem when we come here, but were very disappointed with our service. Would not come here again if it continues to be like this.

Seven of us went for brunch. We ordered many different dishes and shared- chicken & waffles, Boiled Peanut Hummus, Grilled Focaccia Toast, Bananas Foster French Toast, Wild Mushroom Hash, Caramelized Sweet Potatoes, Barbecue Chicken Benedict, a couple of sides of eggs, and of course, beignets. Nothing disappointed. Everything is delivered to the table as it is ready so nothing cools while waiting for other dishes to finish cooking. We also had a mix of drinks from coffees to mimosa. Again, everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Our server was friendly, social, and always checking on us. All in all, couldn’t have been more pleased. Go to Buttermilk and Bourbon. You’ll be glad you did!

Every item was absolutely delicious and different with eye appeal. I loved my waiter!! The best ever in all ways!!! In fact, every person working there gets an A plus.
Each dip, sauce and spread was wonderfully tasty. The amounts went from a teaspoonful to a Tablespoonful. However, that is not enough for even one person. More were requested and received.
My waiter showed me the bill on a handheld computer briefly. He said that after I pay I can receive a copy. So, I requested a copy first. That’s when I noticed it!
I had been charged $1.00 for each refill item I requested. This is not acceptable behavior. Disclosure is the name of the game. Put it on the menu, please. Do not make the servers embarrass us or themselves by needing to remember to verbalize it.
Attitude is everything, folks. You don’t want to place yourself with low class nickel and dime joints when you have so much going for you. Generosity goes a long way.

The food was overpriced and very underwhelming. The drinks were fine and the atmosphere was fun but you can get a better chicken sandwich at Wendy’s for a way better value. $14 for 2 tiny subpar chicken sliders, no thanks. Don’t waste your time or money going here.

Food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. Could add a few more options to the beer menu. And maybe some catfish. But I'm nit-picking. Highly recommend.

Had a wonderful brunch with some old coworkers. Jonathan, our server, was excellent and attentive! We enjoyed the oysters, mac n cheese, baked brie, and of course the biscuits and hush puppies. We also drank some sorbet mimosas which were incredible.

Thank you to everyone for taking such good care of us!

I saw mice running around my table and when I told the workers they didn’t seem to care. Didn’t get to finish one of my orders before we left and they didn’t even offer to comp or give us a percentage off the meal. So disappointed.

A great spot for brunch! Amazing ambiance. Enjoyed the collection of different drinks! Don't miss the grapefruit and vodka drink. We enjoyed the biscuits, thick cut bacon, and the chicken thighs. Lots of food for two so be careful.

High expectations that were burst quickly. 5 of us were put a table for 4 even though there was plenty of space for us to have been moved to a larger table. there was only one other table next to us that had folks sitting at it. Food was amazing but it came out in shifts...everyone ate at different times - didn't make sense at all. Totally bummer.
