The place was nice and quirky. The shortening I had was outstanding. However, it was oddly empty when we went. The menu is good but very limited.

The restaurant was closing for “renovations “ the next day, which i did not knOw until the bare tender told me. For a Saturday evening it was pretty quiet. They did not have much offerings at the bar, limited choices for wine. The food was good, kind of limited menu too. The service was slow. The table next to us got up & left after getting water. The waiter was very pleasant but he was running around as it was him & one other waitress. I wish I had known about the closure, as I would have picked a different restaurant.

Restaurant is closing so the menu is not what's online. Menu very limited. Service bad.

We were the only patrons in the whole restaurant which set an awkward stage. Very large space and high ceilings with white walls and large colorful art pieces. Food was ok, nothing memorable. I think they’re trying too hard.

Granted it was a Tuesday eve. The place was empty. The bartender had to look up how to make a Gimlet. Took forever to get our food which was mediocre . All the staff was very young and seemed to lack experience . The dumplings were a great sad disappointment the pork chop was nice. Presentation was boring .

Server was not familiar with the food or drink menu. Often made up answers, leading us to ask another server for assistance.

We chose the Liquid Art House, to celebrate our anniversary, on a recent visit to Boston. After a long day of travel, we had planned an early dinner, and when we arrived practically had the entire dining room and staff to ourselves. I panicked, thinking that the restaurant must be a problem... but my fears were put to rest by the end of the first course. We followed the suggestions of our server and were delighted with his suggestions. Everything from the cocktails, to the appetizers, salads and entrees... were innovative, prepared with fresh ingredients to perfection. The restaurant began to fill as we enjoyed a relaxing, romantic dinner... followed by a dessert set on an anniversary greeting written in chocolate, from the chef. Before we left, we circled the restaurant to check out all of the art that covered the walls throughout... noting that we should have done so when we first arrived (before it got busy!).
Our server was one of the most gracious, warm, attentive waiters we have have had. All in all, the dinner - and our anniversary, was amazing. Thank you Liquid Art House!

Loved the concept of an art gallery/restaurant but it did not live up to expectations. Service was just ok. some things we asked for never made it to the table. Steaks were very chewy and overpriced but the burrata appetizer was delicious. Not very busy on a Saturday night. Might be better place/experience for a bigger event than just a night out. Not worth the money.

For the price, I expect better. It was deserted. The staff seemed disinterested. The food was fine, but hardly special.
