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.

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!

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.

Had dined here with my husband a couple years ago and really loved our meal, ambiance, service, everything. This time with my 25 year old daughter and a very disappointing experience! Arrived on time for our 9:15 reservation. Greeted with water service within minutes, but then sat with no one acknowledging us for over 15 minutes. When the server (Nina S) finally arrived , she did not apologize for the delay, but rather had a short and snippy attitude and said thank you for being patient. We ordered our drink and food together, not certain if it would be another long delay. Our drinks arrived in a reasonable amount of time, with bread (no butter) shortly after. We took 1 sip of our drinks and were starting to chat and were delivered our meals from a kitchen staff almost immediately. We were shocked!!! After waiting Over 15 minutes to be greeted, our drinks, bread and meal all arrived within 5 minutes!!!! It was one extreme to the other. My food was of good quality (scallops), my daughters (halibut) was VERY dry! We will not be back.

From the moment I stepped in to the moment I left, I absolutely loved this place. As soon as I got in, I was greeted by a very polite and upbeat hostess who pointed my friend and I to the bar. The whole place had dim lights and was kept warm by a large fireplace not far from the entrance (I'm sure they used central heating too :). The bar area looked really nice, clean and the bartender was awesome. She was engaging enough that it was a pleasure to talk to her and get feedback on drinks, but not too much that it was annoying. BTW, if you get the chance, try the sangria - it's amazing.

Soon after we went upstairs for dinner. After looking at the menu, we ordered another glass of wine, steak tartare for appetizer, haddock and scallops for main course, and creme brule and ice cream for dessets. Each and every item was incredible: the steak tartare had some spicyness to it, tasted fresh and was in a very generous portion, something you rarely see in upscale restaurants. The haddock was perfectly well made, not dry at all, and came with some delicious roasted cauliflowers and some delicious spicy sauce on the side. My friend who had the scallops really liked his dish as well. Finally, for dessert, the creme brule was incredible. Not only that, but it came in what appeared to be a larger portion than you would normally get in other restaurants, but that could be because the dish was much wider (although shallower).

The waiter and busser were excellent. He answered all our questions, from wine recommendations to more information on the main course. The busser was like a ninja: he would come in and out unobtrusively, filling our water.

Finally, we leave and we were thanked by both the waiter and the hostess on our way out.

Simply put: I LOVED this place and look foward to coming here again. I've heard that there were complaints regarding their speed. Yes, it did take them a bit longer than other places, but the quality an taste of the food made it more than worth it

Food was good, but not exceptional. Halibut was bland, could have been elevated; it came with parmesan cauliflower, but the parmesan could barely be detected. The filet mignon was very tasty. The the "cookie jar" dessert was a disappointment. We got 3 cold, grocery store-type snickerdoodle cookies for 9$.
Service was excellent, food was good.

We ate upstairs and it was a pleasant experience. The food was freshly prepared and delicious. My mom sent back her salmon to be cooked more ( it was seared) and it came back perfectly moist and juicy. We didn’t get dessert but they gave my mom the chocolate chip cookies to go as an apology for her meal. Nice touch and the cookies were insanely yummy! Will go again!

The service was horrible! It took forever and they screwed up both the appetizer and entree of my friend. She ordered both without cheese because she has to be dairy free and both came out wrong. They took the salad back and then never brought another one! The waitstaff was non-existent. They ignored us when we arrived and through out the meal. I will not return.

Very small menu and a bit overpriced. Food was very tasty but not much to choose from. Cocktail menu had only 4 selections, and 3 of them were unavailable... they were “changing out the cocktail menu and wouldn’t have new drinks until Monday”...This was a Saturday night. Waitstaff was unapologetic and did not attempt to guide any further decisions on beverages. Probably will not return.
