We went on a Sunday at 5:30 and it was pretty quiet in the restaurant. With that said, the service was slow, someone had clam chowder that was congealed, a burger that was supposed to be medium was very dry and someone's salmon on a salad was a bit too charred. We felt like it was leftovers on Sunday night - clean up the kitchen. I would normally recommend Post 390 to people, but not on a Sunday night.

The food was good - and surprisingly quiet for the number of people that were at the restaurant. The waiter was very attentive to my food allergy and the food was excellent. I had the full fish - red snapper. Sides were also really good.

On Saturday after Thanksgiving, I hosted a dinner for my children and my grandchildren for a total of ten people. The service was more than outstanding. We were welcomed warmly and there was a lovely table waiting. The wine and beer list is excellent. Orders were taken and served and the food was interesting and very good. One child ordered from the kid's menu and he was very happy. I did not order dessert and was disappointed when no one ordered the banana cream pie. The service staff overheard me and surprised the table with a piece of the banana cream pie which is their signature dessert. It was wonderful. Definitely worth a trip! Sound level is perfect.

The menu upstairs at Post 390 is eclectic, and does not offer a ton of choice. While we enjoyed our meal, we had a couple of let-downs. We both ordered the whole grilled fish (it was red snapper that night), which was delicious and very well prepared. However, at that price point ($42!) it would have been nice to have at least one vegetable or accompaniment, or to have the waiter offer to de-bone it for us. Also, we split a cheese course afterwards, and were served a corner/heel piece which was very small and nearly all crust! I was very disappointed. I have lived in France and am very familiar with how a cheese course should be served. Our waiter was very slow and too laid back. For special occasion prices, we were not feeling like it was a special occasion!

As always, an amazing experience at Post 390. On this occasion we went for Thanksgiving and the meal was fantastic! However we go here pretty regularly and for good reason! I can honestly say we’ve never had a bad meal/experience here. The dishes are creative but not over the top and always delicious. The staff is stellar, of late we have turned ourselves over to staff on wine selections and they have made the most spectacular recommendations. Definitely our “go to” place downtown for what is guaranteed to be a great meal and bottle of wine! Thank you Post 390!

This was that second Thanksgiving we have spent at 390 and both were excellent. The set turkey dinner menu was very good (much better than Long Bar) but the best parts were the great selection of oysters, the service and the wine. To my mind they have one of the best wine lists in the area.

We celebrated Thanksgiving with six family...they offered a nice combination of menu items and a fixed holiday menu with wine pairings. From hospitality to cuisine, everything was first rate and accommodating to our group's needs. Huge thanks to all.

I believe we have now been to Post 390 five times on Thanksgiving Day and it never disappoints. Not only is the Turkey and sides worth it, but the staff never disappoints and you all let us sit at the bar to watch Detroit Lions football!

we without exception have had wonderful meals here. Our only complaint was that the table upstairs was so dark at this after-theater 5:30 PM reservation that we couldn't read the menus and needed cell phone flashlights to order. the prix fixe menu was very inventive and delicious, the desert not so -- But we love this restaurant and keep coming back for the great food, friendly servers, and the relaxed and classy atmosphere.

We go to Post 390 several times a year. It's always a good experience. This time was as good as ever. It did seem that the noise level was higher than on previous visits. Prices are a bit higher than before as well. But the food was excellent. Portions were appropriately sized, not too large and not too small. Service was very good considering it was very busy. A good place for a special occasion.

My boyfriend and I were gifted an expiring gift certificate for a date night. We rushed over on Monday (the day before it expired!) and had such a wonderful experience. We had the restaurant to ourselves, the servers were very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Food was delicious and the restaurant has a great ambiance. I'm sure it is much busier other times of the week, but it was nice to be able to sit and relax without a crowd. Would definitely recommend

Our server Andrew went above and beyond to make sure that one of our guests with a dairy allergy had a safe and enjoyable meal. He also went out of his way to find out what brand of cherry was used in a drink. We were very lucky to have him as our server. Wonderful guy! Can't wait to return next time we are in the area!

I chose Post 390 based on the excellent reviews in OpenTable. We were expecting excellent food and excelllent service. 2 of the 3 entrees served to lie table were disappointing and overpriced. My halibut was overlooked and swimming in broth- it lacked flavor. My husband dinner entree was the size of an appetizer. Overall, the food was disappointing and overpriced.

As always, because my wife and I go to this restaurant every time we visit Boston and that is about five times a year. Great service, actually it was excellent and so was the food. We will be back. Suggestion try the pork with pears and the whole grilled fish. Ufff!

Dinner with my college student son while visiting Boston. The food was good, but the service was a bit rough. The pre-fixe three course started well with the lobster but the pork was only so so and the apple tart was a disappointment. My son's baked Alaska was excellent. The ambience didn't quite fit the occasion, too dark.
