Great overall experience with service staff and the quality and taste of the food - delicious, fresh, and different. Fun and quite loud. Not for outdoor dining.

Everything was great! Friendly, accommodating staff who offered great suggestions for food and beverages. While the menu seemed limited, the food we had was outstanding (try the wings). And, though we were on the sidewalk, next to a busy street, we didn't really notice the traffic. I definitely recommend this place.

Great food and atmosphere. My only tip - if you’re tall, you won’t enjoy the stools at the high tops. Your back will not be happy with you later.

Cocktails aren’t sweet, and reasonably priced. Decor’s cool. The owner seemed really nice and cool as well!

Honestly everything was great except the fact that there are many items on the menu labeled gluten free that are not actually acceptable for gluten free allergies to eat. This was super disappointing since we choose restaurants knowing that they have food items for those with an allergy. Came home unsatisfied and hungry

You walk in and immediately feel like family. From great service and vibes to amazing food. This time I tried the Ricotta Gnocchi, which was out of this world. Typically not a huge pasta fan, but after hearing about how good it was, I had to try it. Now if only I could hire the chef to cook for me all the time!

We were visiting from New York and we were looking for a good Sunday brunch spot. This place was recommended to us and it far exceeded our expectations on all fronts. The funfetti pancakes and veggie burger tasted incredible and the Brussel sprouts were some of the best we ever had. The bartender recommended his specialty cocktails and they were awesome. The people and ambiance were so memorable and a pleasure to dine with. We can’t wait to go back the next time we’re in the Boston area.

I met a friend at Idle Hour for brunch and ate outside. It was the first time I've been, and it was really great! I had the poutine, which was over-the-top (it included pulled pork and a fried egg) and it was SO GOOD. I also had a cocktail with cold brew coffee, whiskey and cream--also fantastic. Service was good, too. The outside dining area is pretty basic--tables on the sidewalk, and a few in a blocked-off area of the street. They had music playing, which definitely helped, but, there's not much in the way of "ambiance" given the set up. I was glad to be outside, though, and am guessing the set up might be a little nicer as it gets later into spring and summer? But, brunch was great, lots of yummy options!

Food was really good. But it took almost 45 mins to come out. We watched people come in after us and get their food first. Waitress blamed it on us ordering a burger. I ordered the burger MEDIUM- doesn’t take longer than 10 mins for that. A women next to us ordered steak and she came after us and got it before our food so bad excuse. I ordered the B.E.C. and it was suppose to come with an English muffin but I got a sesame bun. I asked why not the English muffin and the waitress said she would ask. She came back 10 min later to say they had run out which should’ve been told to me before making my order so I can decide if I want it or not. Music was kinda loud and hip hop which is fine for me. Not sure if that would be ok with all their guests. Nonetheless the food was good and so was my drink. Service was slow- one waitress and one man clearing and cleaning tables. Their dinner menu looked good. May go back and try.
