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.

Great ambiance and delicious, though pricey, dinner. Took longer than it should have to be served once we moved from the bar where we'd had a bottle of wine and an app to the upstairs for dinner. Our unfinished bottle was carried for us, but we had to carry our half-full glasses - a bit precarious. Lovely, warm interior. We would return if in the area again.

Post 390 is, in a word, decent. The ambiance is comfortable and the space is nicely furnished and well lit. Additionally, the wait staff is very attentive and polite. The restaurant has branded itself as a farm-to-table, high-end cuisine establishment, which it simply is not. We went to Post 390 looking for a relatively quick meal before a show and were surprised to see the elaborate farm-to-table menu. Because we weren't looking to stay for multiple courses, we asked for the downstairs (pub) menu. The food wasn't bad, but it was completely unmemorable. The pasta was overcooked and mushy, the lobster was rubbery, and the burger was just OK. One thing that stood out as delicious was the French Onion Soup. All in all, not a horrible dining experience, but certainly not worth spending over $200

I went to brunch with my family yesterday and was truly appalled at the entire experience. The service was slow and inattentive. It took about 25 minutes for my dad to get a coffee despite ordering it as soon as the waitress arrived; it was finally brought over by a manager after we asked if it was still coming. Later, when the food came, I had ordered the poached eggs in tomato sauce. When I received the meal, the eggs were fried/over hard. It looked like my meal had been sitting under a heat lamp while waiting for everyone else's food to finish. Either way, the eggs were absolutely NOT poached. When I complained, the waitress was incredibly rude about it, so I asked for the manager. He promised they'd make me another, but then came back to let me know that the dish would come out exactly the same, so I asked to cancel the order. They took my meal off the bill, but there wasn't any explanation, apology, etc. from the staff. Truly awful experience from start to finish.

We ate in the dining room upstairs (not the downstairs tavern). It was fine. Service was slow, which initially we didn't mind because we had just seen a show and had a lot to talk about. But it got harder and harder to flag down the waitress as the night went on. The entrees were well prepared but not outstanding, although the French onion soup appetizer was delicious. The dessert menu didn't have anything I wanted on it, which is strange because I have a big sweet tooth. My sister ordered the Valhrona hot fudge sundae, and it came with no hot fudge. We eventually found the waitress and she explained that the pastry chef was new. She brought it back about 10 minutes later with a tiny pitcher of fudge on the side, that contained about a 1/2 inch of not-hot fudge (it wouldn't pour).

I don't think I'll be back, although the tavern downstairs seems like it might have more interesting food so it might be worth trying if we're passing by.

Excellent experience, pre-theater dinner. The table was by a glassed in fireplace which our out of town guest and we appreciated, very much, as the wind made it very cool outside. The charcuterie tray was quite a treat and the entrees were excellent. Carlos was an attentive and accommodating server and Richard, the manager, was overseeing all interactions between customers and servers and made sure that the food was delivered promptly. It's a treat to dine there and one we'd recommend to others.

Wonderful appetizer and entree. The ice cream sundae was less than stellar.
One thing that surprised me was that there was no coat service. It was very clunky to hold onto our coats and the dining room decor suffered from seeing puffer costs and parkas strewn over chairs. A detail worth addressing.

of the two drinks we ordered, one arrived midway through the meal about 40min after all the food and the other drink arrived. i guess its better to order beer and not wine. i must have reminded atleast 4-5 people about the drink, nothing happened before 40 mins. a bit strange i think.

I went during Restaurant Week, so the value was fantastic. If you went on a regular day the value would be less amazing. Portions are well sized.

Vegetarian food isn't their strong suit, but I've mostly enjoyed the food when I've been there. Everything's been well cooked, and any dislike was based on my personal taste, rather than the meal itself.
Dessert is amazing! Strong recommendation for the banana cream pie.

Post 390 is a very attractive and well located restaurant/bar just off Copley Square. Downstairs is a long bar with bar menu dining. The main dining room is upstairs. Both are comfortable and well maintained. Drinks are well made and there are both meat and fish choices on the menu. We started with Island Creek oysters which were very thin but accompanying sauces were well made. Mains were salmon with potatoes. Both were well cooked but felt a bit heavy with the addition of an unnecessary sauce. Service was friendly, prompt and professional. I cannot say the same for the front of the house who were strangely confused and lacking in a welcoming personality.

Expensive but worth it, for the setting, ambiance, food, and service. The alcohol is measured by the book so you don't get a generous drink. If you are handicapped and in a wheelchair, the staff readily opens the entrance door for you and a spacious elevator takes you up to the second floor. Inexpensive garage parking is but a block away. We ate there again before a performance at the Lyric Stage, which is right across the street and for which you get a 20% discount on the food. In all, it makes for an elegant, convenient evening.
