Enjoyed our table outside on a gorgeous summer night. Mushroom salad with polenta croutons was amazing. Wonderful wines to choose from.

For as long as I have been visiting Navy Yard Bistro I have only ever had great experiences. From the staff to the food to the ambiance - it’s a perfect dining experience for me and the guests that I bring with me.

Thank you navy yard bistro for always going above and beyond my expectations!

We were told that the Navy bistro was a must for the experience and the incredible value of fantastic food. I must say that the suggestion was warranted. The food was excellent the service superb and we had a wonderful evening.

My Steak Frites were overcooked and I couldn't get a vodka martini with a Premium or Top Shelf vodka. HUH???

One of my favorite restaurants, we decided to order a sampling of apps on this visit. A couple were really great and a couple seemed off (seasoning wise, one over and one under). But I’ve had lots of amazing meals here.

This is a wonderful restaurant with excellent ambiance, especially on the terrace. My scallops were over cooked but otherwise it was a perfect evening. So sorry this place is closing in August! Thank you.

Although the entree was very good, the bread was skimpy and the feeling was that staff checked out. No toweling in bathroom to dry hands, not very attentive. Over.

It had been a while since we had eaten at the Bistro so were especially pleased that the bartender, Doug greeted us warmly and made us feel right at home. The service and food were excellent as always. We won't let so much time elapse before visiting this great local restaurant again.

Fun little upscale gastro pub in Charlestown. Very nice servers, good wine list and very good food choices made for a nice meal in a comfortable environment. A bit out of the way, but a nice low-key option in C’town.

This time we went for the Valentines Day pre-fixe meal. It was superb, the service was fast and friendly, and the ambiance was amiable, all overseen by owner John Moore. This is a gem of restaurant and one of the very few at which we have never had an unsatistfactory meal or experience.

Learned later they recently lost their lease and clearly now they could care less about the business or their customers. So sad. It was a wonderful neighborhood gathering spot not that long ago - vibrant and a beloved part of the community.

Convenient spot in Charlestown. Would like to give more stars, but stating it was a wine bar was disappointing. Ordered the wine from special list. They couldn’t find it. Ordered another, couldn’t find it. I felt bad for server, the manager should have helped her and spoke to us. Not representative of a wine bar. Food was delicious. Would give it another try in future.

Nice find off the tourist track in Boston. Liliane, our server, was delightful. Good food, solid wine list and a definite bistro vibe in the Navy Yard. All good, recommended.

I was surprised at the quality of my meal last weekend. I ordered the pan fried cod because it was super delicious 2 or 3 times before. Yet, it definitely was not of the same quality. It was soupy, less vegetables and cold. Disappointing.

Had Dinnet with friends outside in a quiet corner. Service and Food were Excellent We all enjoyed our meals ( Mussels, vegan lasagna, cod ) Everyone remarked on how much they enjoyed their meal. My only recommendation is a more full cocktail menu.

The Navy Yard Bistro has the best roast chicken I have eaten in years. The other menu items were excellent as well. My wife had cod with a wonderful crispy crust. The wine selection is solid, and it is a great place to have a conversation.
