First time in Boston. I normally would never do this but we had the last reservation of the night (wanted a nice meal after a 4+hour drive). We missed an exit so we were running a few minutes late on top of that. I called to let the restaurant know and Matt, the host, couldn’t have been nicer or more understanding. Once we got there they politely let us know the kitchen was understandably winding down soon so we ordered/and kept things moving swiftly, but they did not rush us at all and we still had a really nice time. Had several smaller plates... calamari, tuna tartare, French onion soup, crab cake, Cesar salad and some drinks. Everything was delicious, the drinks were balanced, and it was the perfect nightcap after a long day of travel. Not to mention a perfect welcome to the city. It’s a really nice, spacious dining room with high ceilings. Open kitchen. Felt very safe re:
COVID. Digital menu, digital payments, everyone in masks and lots of room. Thank you Matt and Grill23 for your hospitality 😊

The food and the serve at Grill 23 are second to none. Ask for Chris or Adam if you go, especially now that they are open on Sundays. You can also see that they are taking the health and safety of their guests to heart. The restaurant stayed closed well after Boston restaurants were allowed to open indoors so they could make sure they were best able to provide a top notch experience while also maintaining the utmost in cleanliness and safety.

The food at Grill 23 was arguably the best we’ve ever had. Literally. You must not miss this restaurant if venturing to Boston. Lindsay, our server, could not have been better. What an exceptional experience, we’ll be back!

Grill 23 continues to impress. The service was exceptional. My Steak Frites were slightly undercooked. My wife's Filet Minion was perfect. My only complaint - And I can only hold G23 partly responsible for this - is the slow, continual decline in Boston's dress code and personal appearance. The staff were dressed perfectly. I'm talking about the guests. Next to my wife and me were a couple who looked like they had rolled out of bed to come to dinner. Work boots (untied), blue jeans falling off, tee shirt. There were others. In the old days, fine restaurants had dress codes. Ambiance is part of the experience. Eating with slobs becomes a detriment to that.

Thank you for dining with us. I'm sorry that the way some of our guests were dressed was a detriment to your evening. I appreciate you taking the time to let us know about your concern. Please know that we take all constructive criticism in the manner in which it was intended. I hope that you will return to dine with us again in the near future. Greg Dickinson - General Manager

Wonderful 100 days aged ribeye steak and attentive wait staff. Beautiful and luxury ambience, great for a dress-up night dinner in the city. The only thing that I didn’t particularly like - fries are not your regular crispy thin sticks, but rather belonged fried potato wedges. If I knew that, I would have resorted to something crispier like tots.

We came here for a birthday dinner and felt very safe. All the staff had masks and all tables were appropriately distanced. The drinks were excellent.
We all ordered different steaks and there were no complaints. The sides were just as good. When it came to desserts, we passed them all around to share and each one was excellent. We will be back soon.
