Contemporary American
Post 390 puts a contemporary twist on seasonally inspired dishes that reflect Executive Chef Deutmeyer's passion for fresh ingredients and unforgettable flavors. On the first floor is the Tavern: a casual but sophisticated menu and atmosphere, with a 25-seat bar and high top and banquette seating area, warmed by a beautiful four-sided fireplace. A massive wrought iron staircase connects the energy of the first floor with the Dining Room on the second floor.
Here, guests can have a more refined dining experience, and enjoy our large, open kitchen, wine displays, two private dining rooms, additional fireside dining and views of landmarks like Copley Place, Trinity Church and the Hancock Tower.
Located in the Clarendon Building, on the corner of Clarendon and Stuart Streets at the site of the former Back Bay Post Office Annex, Post 390 is perfectly situated within walking distance of the South End and Back Bay neighborhoods.

Crabcakes are really great. The salmon, nicely done. If you are seated in the Tavern on a Friday night, be prepared for possible loud talkers from the bar.

We love sitting in the cozy bar area with big windows and fireplace. Food and beer selection are great. Burgers are really good. We like the Korean chicken which is a great option but I think they are missing an opportunity by not offering a Memphis style hot chicken option, which would be even better.

I came here for lunch with my coworkers today. It was a quiet lunch service with just a sprinkling of diners. Service was friendly and quick. We ordered from the Dine Out Boston menu. The bourbon-marinated steak tips was divine. It was very juicy, tender, and flavorful. We were full from having just the appetizer and entree that we ordered the dessert: chocolate chip cookies to go. And boy were they rich and decadent. The food coma hit me so hard that I almost fell asleep after returning to work.

I definitely recommend this place and would come back.

Went during restaurant week so good value. The main entree was great, appetizer and dessert good but nothing to write home about. The service was very slow though. I think we were sitting for every bit of 10-15 minutes before someone came and took drink orders.

Food was awesome, waiter was not though the backwaiters were really nice. Our waiter had a huge attitude and virtually ignored our table after taking our order though he wasn't busy, until he brought the dessert menus. The only reason I gave a good tip was because I know some of it goes to other staff, and they earned it. The food was actually amazing for all 4 entrees - apps were a bit small but I guess that's the type of place it is so that's acceptable. When we went downstairs to the bar for a last glass of wine afterwards the (female) bartender was extremely snippy, i.e. seemed to be irritated by a question about the coffee. Not sure where all this attitude is coming from, but Post 390 seems to have a problem with it in its ranks. In fairness, I will say the woman who sat us and the first (also female) bartender who served us at the bar prior to dinner could not have been nicer. Same for another random backwaiter who said goodnight as we left the upstairs restaurant. If I see that waiter of second bartender again I will either request other staff or leave; I have no tolerance for haughty, condescending attitudes.

Althought Post 390 is normally too expensive for me, I went last night during Dine Out Boston, and loved it. I'm a vegetarian and usually feel shafted during the fine dining experience, but Post 390 had delicious choices on the Dine Out Boston menu. Seasonal salad, ravioli with pistachios and shitake mushrooms, and a huge piece of banana cream pie. Delicious local beer from Lamplighter Brewery (Birds of a Feather IPA). My companions were also very happy with the food. They chose the wine pairing and were disappointed by the amount of wine in each glass, but had no complaints about the quality. Our server was very attentive as were all the waitstaff. The atmosphere was very pleasant because it was not noisy, yet you did not feel obliged to speak softly. Loved it!

We were there on a slow night. It was quiet, but dishes kept being dropped and the lights kept going off. That being said, our meal was very good. The only issue was that it took a long time for the entree food to come out. We have eaten here a number of times in the past and always have a good experience. I certainly would go back and recommend it to others.

Went with my wife, daughter and her fiancé. Everyone thought that the food was excellent. Ate upstairs. Asked if we could have the cheese board and charcuterie from the downstairs menu as appetizers. Staff said no problem. Very large portions. We had the half board of the charcuterie and it was more than enough for everyone to have multiple tastes. Wife also had the tuna appetizer. We had the fish of the day, one of the steaks, scallops and the mushroom pasta. All were excellent. Service was very good, but a couple of glitches. My glass of wine with the meal was not delivered until I asked for it, well after the food was brought to the table. The two appetizers from downstairs did not come with any utensils to share or serve. Desserts were partly melted, leading us to think that they may have been sitting out for a bit. Nevertheless, it was a great meal, one of the best we have had. We will definitely go back, but probably order a bit less food as the portions were quite large.

We had such a wonderful anniversary dinner at Post 390. From the dangerously delicious sangria, to the "sharkuterie" creations to play off of Shark Week, to the crab cakes, to the amazing NY Strip Steak, and ending with the tasty cookies, our experience was outstanding. Not only was the food 5 star, but the service was top notch too. Jason and Scott were very attentive and knowledgeable. It was a perfect dining experience.

The hostesses were so accommodating! Server took awhile to come over to us and messed up two of our drinks, which took forever to come to the table (we ordered a cosmo and he gave us a martini..and we ordered a vodka soda splash of cran and there was no cranberry in it). We had to ask for bread after 30 minutes. The clam chowder was not very good, the pizza was delicious and the fries were great. The service however was slow and not consistent.
