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.

Very nice atmosphere but slightly cramped. Superior service and the food was out in 10-15min

Had the Margerhita Pizza and it was above avg. The Brussel sprout Cesar salad was overhyped and bland. No seasoning at all. Needed salt arc and then was ok.

Prices were ok for Boston. Drinks had short pours. Waitress was great .. I would go back

Reservation at 5pm - waited outside in cold for doors to open at 5:08pm
Ordered special Fall Belvedere Spritz drink on menu - no Rosemary or sugared cranberries as described.
Drinks took forever to be delivered- it wasn’t crowded when we ordered so that was disappointing.
The food was good. The ambiance was nice but disappointed to see jeans on the waiter.

Hello Anonymous, I am not sure what restaurant you are describing but it is not Post 390. We opened at 11:30 AM on 12/13 - so the doors were not locked. We don't have the cocktail you described on our menu. Hopefully, you would like to join us at our restaurant. I would be pleased to welcome you. Michael Seznec, mseznec@himmelhospitality.co m . Happy Holidays

I made a reservation on OpenTable for a Thursday night. I noted on the reservation that it was a special night (reunion with a friend after many years). Despite the place being really jammed, everyone treated us with such grace and care. It was TRULY an amazing night of welcome gestures, fantastic service, great drinks and wine (Ramey Cab!!!!), and DELICIOUS food. We were greeted by a complimentary sparkling wine upon being seated. The STAFF! Every single person from the personable host, bus staff, food runner, our FANTASTIC waitress, and management were so genuine in their care and kindness. THANK YOU Post 390, you have a great thing going there, and know that it is recognized and appreciated.

I always enjoy my outings at the restaurant and feel the staff are extremely courteous, kind and professional. The food was great, ambiance, and entire atmosphere. The two person table was more invasive than I recall in the past (on top of each other).

We had another terrific pre-theater dinner at Post 390 on Saturday. Everyone from the host to the servers was extremely helpful and cordial. I have several dietary restrictions that were cheerfully and graciously accommodated. The three people in our party ordered very different menu items, all of which were delivered to the table simultaneously and were absolutely delicious. We’re looking forward to our next meal here!

Overall the dining was fine - food, service, etc. However, this was not good: Oysters are priced at $3.25 each and $18.00 for six. We ordered six. There were four oyster varieties listed on the menu. The waiter asked if we would like an assortment instead of all one variety. We chose the assortment. When the bill arrived, we found that we were charged $19.50 for the six oysters. The explanation - because we ordered an assortment we were charged the per oyster price ($3.25 x 6 = $19.50). This is not good policy.

Thank you so much for your note. You are absolutely correct. Unfortunately your oysters were not rung up properly. Definitely not our policy. We will go over this with our team. I am sorry. Please reach out to me the next time you would like to join us and I will make it up to you! Michael Seznec; mseznec@himmelhospitality. c o m.

Great location in downtown Boston with parking available on the street or nearby garage. Atmosphere was impressive, and you can see a cozy fireplace from the window. Plenty of seating options—downstairs in their “tavern” but it’s very nice with bar seating also available. We chose to dine upstairs in the main dining room, and can still order from downstairs menu as well. Very delicious drinks, food and dessert! Loved the holiday decor also, we will definitely be back!

The food was fine, but the wine was way too young to have been offered. This was a by-the=glass Chianti and was quite thin and tart. We had just spent 5 weeks in Tuscany, Sicily, and Malta, so we know what at least a decent Chianti should taste like. Thank you.

Thank you for your note. I am glad you enjoyed the food. I am sorry you did not enjoy the wine. I am curious as to what you had that you felt was too young. mseznec@himmelhospitality. co m

Just another overpriced restaurant whose menu reads well, but doesn't deliver. The wait staff is visibly under-trained, nobody who attended to us seemed to know much about how to deliver service at a level that matches this price point. Delays, missing cutlery, infrequent walks by the table to ensure we had what we needed. And not a "manager" type in sight. What could be easier than the "traditional" Thanksgiving dinner? My husband enjoyed his steak and croquettes, the actual turkey was good, the "traditional" (non-traditional) side dishes were lacking. The dessert cart looked like it had been wheeled down an airplane aisle on its way to our table. The coffee was old. C'mon people.....you can do better than that!! You're going to have to if you want this neighbor to return!!

This is not my first Post 390 review, and it will read much like the others. As you can infer, we wouldn't keep going back unless we were happy with the restaurant, and we certainly are. The cuisine plays around with ingredients and flavors just enough to be out of the ordinary without being strange. Service, ambiance, noise levels are just fine. The wine and beer lists are excellent. The restaurant is not inexpensive but in my opinion it is a fine value, and we will be back.
