    Estella is always a great idea! Food was amazing. Parmesan Garlic Yucca fries & Java Tuna Tartare - a must try. And the steak & cheese flatbread pizza - so delicious.

    The service was slow. The food was weird. Who puts fresh parsley on bacon? The waffle was good, but they only had one kind of bread for toast and it wasn’t toasted. Good value but weird food. How do you mess up bacon.

    It was our first time and it was a busy Friday night. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive and the rest of the staff were good as well. Highly recommend the herb crusted salmon, oxtail rasta pasta, and butter bond cake. We'll be back.

    Food was decent - not great, not bad. The issue was that the services was VERY SLOW. There seemed to be some confusion around who had our table and it took quite a long time for us to initially order drinks, receive those drinks, order our food and receive our food. It seemed like they were somehow unprepared for the busy nature of Mother's Day.

    Unfortunately I would not recommend. Went to Mothers Day Brunch. Service was painfully slow. Ordered a Bloody Mary only to find out 20 minutes later there was no Worcestershire sauce.Ordered steak and eggs. Advertising as a filet but it was by no means a filet. It was overcooked and dry. Lobster Benedict came cold and the eggs were overcooked as well. Waiter let us know that he would get to us when he could??? Not worth a second try for me. Too many good restaurants in Boston to waste my time and money here!

    Service was slow and forgetful. We had to order drinks multiple times before finally getting one. We were rushed into ordering our entrees and then forgot about once the order was placed. The food was okay but not worth the price by any means. We will not be going back to this establishment.

    We had a good experience. The lamb was cooked perfectly but bland in seasoning. Same with the mashed potatoes that came with it and also the broccoli. Others dishes were good my lobster raviolis didn’t come with enough lobster. But flavor was good. Chandelier pasta with seafood and champagne sauce was very good. Over all nice experience, chef came out and spoke to me, restaurant manager came out and spoke to us and our waitress was happy and excellent. We would go back again.

    Quick brunch before Ballet. First time at this very convenient and extremely tasty restaurant. Our server was terrific while there was some confusion about utensils and condiments required, the main server tried to rectify the situation with apologies for new helpers. Food was terrific. Will definitely go again as regular Ballet and Opera House attendee.

    Bad experience…the waitress could care less about the customer service aspect of her job. I ordered a zero proof drink because I am pregnant. The first time it came out it was missing key ingredients listed and was disgusting. When returning with the new drink she put it down while walking away. Not even looking our direction. She never came back to ensure we were satisfied. The food was sub par. I had the Rasta pasta with oxtail and BEWARE it was chuck steak NOT oxtail. I grew suspicious of it because it had no bone. There’s no reason to serve oxtail with no bone. Then when my husband and I tried it we immediately could tell it wasn’t oxtail. All in all in was a disappointment and I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant. Poor service and bad food

    This my second and last time at this restaurant. It has decreased in quality. The service was very poor, the order was wrongly taken. We were three, two of us got our drinks pretty fast. It took more than fifteen minutes after that for the third one to get his beer despite us asking again. The food was not exceptional. We have paid way too much for the overall quality of this dinner.

    Looked online to book a restaurant for dinner before a show. The menu looked great, especially since there were a lot of options and we had some dietary restrictions. Upon scanning the QR for the menu, many of those options weren't on the menu so a bit disappointing as we'd identified what we wanted to order and were looking forward to. Eating out is a treat for us! The server was sweet but very slow. The food was good but a little salty and the Veggies were a bit overcooked. Creme Brulee was good. Had higher expectations based on online information but was a decent option for the area. Ambience was good.

    I threw my sisters 30th birthday brunch here at Estella. Not only were the staff accommodating to my large party, but they were also patient and hospitable. Everyone enjoyed their food and the music was great. They played a mix of rnb and afrobeats- which is just our taste! Overall we had a great experience and would visit again!

    I would not recommend this restaurant. We got 2 different benedicts. The eggs were overcooked on both. The house potatoes were greasy and very salty; not much other flavor. When we asked for refills on coffee and water the waiter brought new glasses of each and also refilled our first glasses. So we ended up with a very cluttered table. Will not be going back.

    We loved our dining experience. The only complaint is that your asparagus game needs to be upgraded. Four little spear is not a good look, but everything else was lovely. Stacy provided exceptional service, she was attentive and personable. I would definitely come again. Thank you to Stacy again!
