    Another spectacular visit to North Street Grille! Celebrated a family birthday and the staff brought out a candle-topped mimosa for the birthday girl and sang Happy Birthday. So special and so thoughtful!! Food was awesome as usual!!

    Food and service were exceptional. Our food came out quickly and piping hot. The serving size was large with very fresh ingredients. The dining area is quite small, tables are very close together so you are more likely to talk to your neighbors. Would highly recommend.

    I’m not from Boston myself, but my friend who lives nearby had recommended this place for my birthday brunch- and I’m so glad I took her advice! My server was so sweet and attentive, the food was delicious - seriously, get the north end benedict - and it was busy but didn’t feel loud and I wasn’t rushed. Thoroughly enjoyed my first experience here and can’t wait to come back next time I’m in town!

    Not happy about how reservations were handled, we had to wait past our reservation time, people on line without a reservation and people that came after us were seated before us. We made reservations for 2 pm, got there at 1:33 pm to see if we could get in early (had somewhere to be at 3:30 pm), saw a line of people waiting outside without reservations. When we got there we didn’t see the hostess so we went inside to check in for our reservation and was told by a waiter the hostess would be with us. The hostess came inside surprised to see us and told us we were too early, to come back closer to 2 pm and she would also text us when our table is ready. We left and came back before 1:50 pm, waiting by the front, no acknowledgment or eye contact was made to us by the hostess when we arrived, she was acting like she was purposely ignoring us while engaging in friendly banter with others. We waited till 2 pm to ask the hostess about the status of our table and she said the kitchen was very busy and our table wasn’t ready yet, I asked how long she thought we would have to wait and she said about 10 minutes. Right after that the hostess let in a group of 4 without reservations (we were a group of 4). Another group came after that to check in for their reservation (a group of 4) and they were let in before us. At 2:25 we were seated. I understand about waiting past your reservation times but everything was done in a very unfriendly way like we were being punished for arriving early. Food came out quickly, my North End Benedict eggs was disappointing, eggs were almost cold and the prosciutto was too salty for my taste. My husband didn’t get his order (Florentine eggs benedict) till after we inquired about it and I was already done with my food. The best thing about the brunch was the bourbon French toast, that was very good and a must. Also read from reviews that you get a complimentary banana bread, We didn’t get any, maybe that’s just a breakfast thing?

    Great place for an amazing breakfast or brunch. Found this on a Google search and lucked out with a reservation. Tight quarters lends to chatting up with your neighbors but there is lots to chat about between the extensive menu of food and drinks. Service was excellent too from the woman who greeted us at the door to the wait staff that nimbly squeezed between tables. Bloody Mary was delish but the omelette and eggs Benedict made it stella. This not your average breakfast joint. Superb!

    There's a reason they have been voted Best Brunch in Boston! Run, don't walk, to this wonderful neighborhood restaurant in the North End. Our server was so pleasant, I believe she is one of the owners. Our food was substantial, and delicious! We went on a Tuesday morning, and it was very quiet, but on the weekends there is always a line down the street. I can't wait to go back!

    We had company from out of town and wanted someplace special for breakfast. We had an amazing breakfast at the north st grille. The food was delicious and plenty of it. One of our party was a vegetarian and they had the perfect dish for her. She thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. The acholic beverages were yummy. The service was excellent, there when you needed them, but not a bother. We had an awesome time. Thank you NSG.

    I’m visiting Boston for the holidays(from Philly)and North Srreet Grille has been my favorite meal. The restaurant is small and eating space is tight but the food was AMAZING!! I ate the chicken and waffle sliders with hash browns and a side of bacon. Portions are huge! I also had the blueberry muffin martini and it was very tasty. It’s best to make a reservation because ppl are salivating to eat here😋the hostess and waitstaff are very friendly and pleasant. I will definitely be back to eat here again, next time I’m in Boston! Come here and check it out. You won’t be disappointed I promise!!

    very good food and mostly very welcoming service except one girl. i had a made a reservation at 3:30 and then found out they closed at 4. i called to make sure this wasn’t an issue and they no still come in no problem. we ordered quick and was eating and all the waiters were sitting at a table next to us watching us and waiting until they could leave. but one girl in specific asked if we were all done or ready for the check, with attitude and dirty looks rushing us out and not being able to finish our meals. we got the bill and left, i was satisfied with the food but not with the ambiance of that one server.
