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.

This was our third visit to Post 390, and it didn't disappoint. This is really my kind of restaurant: relaxed but attentive service, very attractive but not stuffy ambiance, and excellent food that is adventurous but not weird for the sake of being weird. The ingredients and flavors are sometimes unusual but they always work together. I occasionally want familiar cuisine when I dine out, but more often I want a meal that suggests new ways of preparing familiar ingredients, or new combinations. This restaurant does a nice job of gently pushing the limits. BTW, the wine list is very good and the beer list especially so.

Post 390 is a frequent go-to place for us with special friends. The entrees are always superb and worth the expense. On last night's dinner, we had the skirt steak farm-to-table "special" and the whole fish -- both beautifully done. The first courses were uneven, with a carrot salad at $16 a big disappointment, and our shared dessert -- "a sticky toffee pudding " -- actually a round of gingerbread topped by whipped cream -- not what was billed on the menu! Service is always friendly and timed well. We keep coming back -- a great chef and fun menu choices.

Great environment, though quite noisy. Warm friendly staff, but not 100% attentive (remembering to freshen drinks, other mistakes). Had pear glazed pork; not a great cut (too much chewy sinew), tough, overdone. Had great salad before ('white' salad I think it was). Banana cream pie for desert was very good. Friend had a burger, asked for no onions, it was covered in onions and the fries are not that good--again for the price.

Nice menu, great environment, food quality and service doesn't equate with pricing.

The food was fabulous and the service was incredible. It was a very cold night and we were given the table nearest the fireplace. Terrific. My friend and I each had an appetizer, then asked to share an entrée, which was no problem. They actually split the dish so that we each received a beautifully plated meal. We paid our check but were deep in conversation and sat at the table for at least a half hour, but they never rushed us. They just kept filling our water glasses. Great place.

Pretty salt-forward food. Companions scallops good and especially the accompanying pilaf, though salty. Venison carpaccio came with over salted chips. My organic chicken breast turned to chicken dust in the mouth-both salty and dry. Greens on plate so salty as to be bitter. Told very nice server who offered to get manager. We told her it was OK, just wanted to provide feedback. When we got bill she had taken my dish off anyhow. Left her nice tip as dish not her fault, appreciated her professionalism. Food needs to be evaluated—someone in kitchen has heavy hand with salt.

Quite underwhelming with both service and food. The venison tartare was extremely bland, and no one came to ask how the food was. That being said, the bread they serve is excellent. In the past I enjoyed coming here for the food and ambiance, but it feels like everything is slowly slipping. Hoping it was just fluke, but on a quiet weekday night with hardly anyone else in the restaurant, would have hoped things were a bit more polished.

Spectacular!!! Food is always amazing. Staff is always accommodating, friendly and genuine. Fireplace is the best in town. Our all time favorite in Boston.

Went here at the recommendation of a friend. Highly overpriced for average food. But a very diverse menu of interesting combinations. Had the Hellenic burger because I couldn't find something hearty for under 30$ an entree.
