Awesome brunch. Delicious cheeseburger hash and their standard burger. Great food and service. Love this place.
Food is excellent and different and the space is really well done but the noise level is obnoxious. You have to yell to be heard. Not a great way to enjoy a nice meal!
This is the 2nd time I have eaten here. The ingredients are so fresh! The poached eggs cooked to perfection, hard to find a hollandaise sauce that good.
The burger was outstanding. I think it was all made from scratch. Ricotta dumplings, yummy. Chilequilles, delish! Can’t go wrong with any of it. Great combination of flavors.
Cozy and inviting. Food was delicious (we had fish tacos and the cod). Beer and wine selections were good - not extensive, but well chosen. Staff was welcoming and right on top of everything. The Lodge next door is really cool for hanging out, too!
Great food and drinks!
Great for out of town guests :)
Food was delicious , got the halibut
Upstairs bar is really cool
We had a nice time at Publico. Food was very, very good. Service was excellent! I would absolutely recommend Publico for the food. I will say that the drinks are VERY expensive and not really generous. For that reason, I will not be back soon. In addition, I asked when making a reservation to seat us someplace on the warm side as I was bringing my elderly father. When we arrived we were place in the table closest to the door!!!! It was a cold February evening! They graciously moved us when asked, but it was disappointing we had to.
Great Brunch spot for the weekend! Fantastic food and drinks to match!
Good food, great service in the restaurant. Moved into the upper bar. Very cool space. Great service continued. We’ll be back.
Went there for an anniversary and had one of our best meals ever. Chef Joel Howard even came out to check up on us. Really great guy
Great place for Sunday brunch. The food was delicious. We were there for a long time and never felt rushed or pushed out.
Very good food with generous portions. Nice waitstaff, but overwhelmed by the crowd. Good value. Overall, fun, but very high noise level (it was a Saturday night).
The food here is amazing! I went for dinner with my sister. Super cool vibe also. Definitely coming back for brunch next time!
The food was excellent, ambience was fun and cool. I will be back
The service was very strange. It was like a bunch of aliens visiting earth as servers for the first time.
I feel like I've had great experiences at Publico in the past, but my last one was not. Our server did not pay close attention to our table, often forgetting to put in drink orders, etc. and the french toast was really flavor-less. Needless to say, I was disappointed with my latest visit as I've had good ones in the past.
Great food. Fun atmosphere. They have a really nice bar/lounge spot for drinks before or after that’s suitable for couples or large groups.
The best Chicken and Brussel Sprouts I have ever had. This is a hidden gem in South Boston! Great service too!!
The cake bowl was amazing !!! We also enjoyed everything else we had including the Brussels sprouts, hot dawg, empanadas and chicken Asada. Service was great!
Staff was helpful and Kitchen was extremely gracious with dietary restrictions. Love it at Publico!
Food was over priced and not good. Fusion was bad. Mixed drinks were not good either.
Never disappoints! Food is exceptionally prepared and presented.
Second time having brunch here. Food was again delicious and staff super friendly. Definitely adding this to my Sunday brunch list!
Great! Thank you
Our second time here was even better than the first. Service is great -- the waitress knows exactly how often to come by without being overbearing. They have the best empanadas around with a very tasty salsa. The sourdough rolls were so good we had two order. Paella gets great reviews as does the pork chop. Only disappointment was that there was a private party in the outdoor area so we sat inside.
Off the beaten path of West Broadway, this Southie local is worth the detour down Dorchester Street. Steak Frites was delicious as was the Pork Chop and the bowl of cake - well, nothing more needs to be said about that.
Amazing food, amazing cocktails.
Outstanding food, atmosphere and service. Can’t wait to go back.
Food was great, and we were given a three person corner booth for two on a date which was very nice.
First time we’d been to Publico and I’m just disappointed I’d not been before. We absolutely loved it! One of the best bars I’ve been to for good lighting and atmosphere. Music was also really good
Awesome environment, upscale and worth the price
Loved it. The food was great as was the atmosphere!
Food was very good, service was very poor I saw other reviews say the same and thought I’d give them a try, maybe now that they have been there a while they may have worked out their service problems - but they did not
Great spot for lunch. Not overly crowded. Great food and fresh ingredients. Service was also great as was the atmosphere.
Great service and atmosphere!!
WAY too expensive and portions are too small. Food was ok. Nothing amazing.
Great place for a small meal or you can upsize. Food was great and service was too.
Fantastic would definitely recommend. Looking forward to going back soon.
