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.

A Thursday night close to Christmas, so the large bar was jumping and much too noisy for our more senior ears. We hoped to be seated upstairs and were a bit apprehensive when we were led to a booth in the rear corner of the 1st floor, but it was not too bad, and when we tasted what we ordered, we were happy we stayed.

The 'Pig Plate' of the day was mac & cheese with mushrooms and pork which was amazing. Also the Roasted Carrot Salad - a MUST TRY.

Shared the Truffled Baked Alaska - sweet and chocolaty - a splurge, but VERY worth it!

We always dine at Post 390 before theater at the Lyric. Our favorite spot is next to the fireplace in the tavern. For my group, we prefer some of the lighter dishes since we'll be sitting in theater after dining. Our favorites are the Mezze Board, the Crab and Corn Pizza, the Marguerita Pizza, the Veggie Burger & their mixed green salad. The food and wine are always good. But, a restaurant is often measured not only by it's cuisine, but by it's service. Post 390 has some of the BEST employees...in particular the young woman (I do wish I could recall her name), who "man's" the reservation desk...she's awesome!! We've always had great waiters, who are very knowledgeable about food and wine & best of all, they are adept at efficiently yet gracefully getting us out in time for theater. All the elements that theater goers enjoy.

We arrived for our reservation about 15 minutes early and were initially offered to sit downstairs in the lounge. There was at least 1 holiday party going on so it was very loud and unappealing. After asking about the upstairs dining room, we were offered a table up there. Menu was well balanced, and service was attentive. We were greeted by a waiter, but we were assisted the entire time by the Somm. My boyfriend's entree was wrong, but he happily took it as it was another dish he was interested in. For the inconvenience, the Somm took off our second round of drinks. He was very knowledgeable of the menu and pairing options. Overall a good experience and would go back again.

Food was good, drinks were good, they had a kid's menu but the food could have been more kid-appropriate (don't use spaghetti for the pasta dish- it's too hard for kids - use penne or rotini or ziti, and cut the steak tips into smaller kid-size pieces!)

Service was not great. Waitress was grumpy, never asked us if food was ok, did not offer bread, did not offer drink refills (except the beer, because, $) and we had to chase her down for the check, though we had explained we had theater tickets. I NEVER leave only 15%, but did this night....she deserved even less.

Seems like a popular place to go after work on a Thursday night. So there are a lot of large groups. This overwhelmed our server--we ended up having only entrees (no appetizers, no desserts) because service was taking so long. There was no manager present who seemed to care; no-one came to apologize for how long the service was taking. Certainly won't go back.

We had a great meal here. The food and the service were terrific. We were in a bit of a hurry and the server was really good about making sure we got out on time. The only minor complaint we had was that the tables were quite close together so we didn't have much room around us. That made it a little less comfortable getting in and our of our seats. Overall though, we loved it and will be back.

Very congenial and friendly first floor around the fireplace. Accommodating staff, excellent wait staff. Outstanding lunch food, ie Great Big Cheeseburger with Cole Slaw. Easy place to have a conversation although the noise level is high. Had an intimate seating at a semi-circular elevated booth at the end of the section, suitable for a private conversation. It's a favorite of mine for pre-Lyric Stage dining as well. Although, this meal was a special luncheon with a friend.

We went here for Brunch before attending an event at the Lyric Opera, next door. The menu had many great choices, however we decided to split the cheeseburger (delicious!) and cooked to order! The peach iced tea was a treat, and the waitstaff was excellent, splitting our plates without asking and at no charge. The built in gas fireplace by the bar and high top seats also added a nice touch of elegance.

We normally love this restaurant. But we ordered a glass of wine and the glass came with some sort of dirt caked around the rim.

Then the Waitstaff gave our apps and meal to another table by mistake. So we didn’t have any food for almost an hour.

They comped our meal which was the right response. But really poor experience. Not sure what happened.

It was fine, but we were a little taken aback when my friend’s pork looked a little pink (she asked for well done)and the server brought it back. It just needed a few more minutes. Anyway, there was another server who was delightful and made everything fine. The food was good, but we were visiting from out of town and I don’t think we’ll recommend it.

We were visiting for a conference and the hotel recommended this place since it was walking distance. The fireplace was cozy and the bar was packed. All staff was super friendly and the food was delicious. Great selection between drinks and food for a variety of diets. We our party expanded from 6 to 10 and they accommodated us at a busy time without blinking an eye. Our hotel was spot on, we loved it!

The service was extremely slow. When the soup finally came out, it was barely warm. We asked our server if the lobster fra diavolo was very spicy and he said “no, just a kick but not too spicy.” However, it tasted as if they poured a bottle of Tabasco in. He clearly lied to get us to order the most expensive item on the menu. The scallops and salmon were pretty good, but given the overall experience, I will never come back.

We came to Local 149 after tasting the Chicken sliders (really good) at a food festival. The Hog Pops are really good, as is the lamb burger with sweet potato fries--so the food did not disappoint. Prices were fair for food with pretty good portions. Beers were good with good sizes options. Service was a bit slow, but the server was a nice guy, so we didn't mind. It got pretty busy between 6-7p--we had 5p reservations, which was the way to go. The crowd seems to be mostly local--we came from the North Shore, so it was a bit of a drive, which we probably wouldn't do again, unless we had something in town to do...
