Took us 45 minutes to leave because our server wouldn’t come back to the table to give us our check. And gave major attitude when we asked for it.
Food was bleh.
Fantastic! Incredible service and amazing food! I’ll be back!
So glad to have Publico back to a full menu and normal service. Have missed this!!
We had a night out with no kids!!! The food, drinks and service did not disappoint
Thank you so much! Glad we can be a part of your night off and made it enjoyable. Trust us, we get it =)
Always love Publico! Food and service was amazing as always
Thanks for the 5 stars, hope to see you again soon!
Date night with child in tow 😃 publico is always the perfect place for this. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the amazing day. Ordered from the 3 for $38 Wednesday menu and enjoyed all of it. We brought food and drink for our son but our servers brought him a drink in a cool bear cup. He was thrilled!
Thanks for the 5 stars Shea! Glad we put a smile on the little one's face. Come visit again soon!!
Very slow experience today.
We love this place! The food, the atmosphere, the people!
Thank You Ginger!!
Always good service, food, and atmosphere.
Thank You so much!! Hope to see you again soon!
Great vibes. Great food. Great service!
Great meal! Great service! Great ambience!
Thank you so much! Please come back again soon. Joe Marotta General Manager
The restaurant is beauitful inside, the food was good, I liked the wine selection and our server was very nice.y only critique is the music was so loud you could hardly have a conversation. I understand they want it to be a fun environment but it was too loud for me. Other than the volume on the music, this was a great experience and we will be back!
Thank you Marianne. Sorry about the music, but glad to hear the rest of your experience was great! Please do come back and don't hesitate to ask us to turn it down next time. We want all 5-stars=) Joe Marotta General Manager
LOVED IT! The ambience, the drinks, Tina the server, it was all great.
Thank You so much!! Visit again soon
We've always love Publico and is our "go to" local spot just 2 blocks from us. The food is always outstanding as is the service. And we love the atmosphere, unique courtyard. We especially love the new expanded menu and the 3-for-$38 on Tuesdays & Wednesdays.
Tina is the best
She certainly is!!
The food was really good, along with a very vibrant atmosphere
Thank You Julia!!
Always outstanding food and service
Thanks so much. Hope to see you again soon!
I tried to reserve a high top in the courtyard when I booked my reservation but was told I could not and that that area was first come first serve. When we got to lunch there was an open high top table in the courtyard but I was told it was reserved for another party. That was disappointing. Otherwise everything was good.
Great service. Food was delicious. Would go back for the $1 oysters
Buck-a-Shuck every Thursday. Please do come back.
The staff was professional and gracious. The dining experience in the patio was lovely. And the three course meal offering was delicious.
Thank You so much. We serve our 3 for $38 menu every Tuesday & Wednesday and it changes monthly, so please try us again soon.
Any event you wish to celebrate we will see to making it very special.
Publico is *~vibes~*. Love the multiple outdoor options- both in the front patio and the open area roof where I sat for brunch. The avocado toast with chili oil was fantastic. Drinks were fine. The pork belly benedict was fine too (a little dry). Overall a cool space and place to visit and the menu made me want to return to try more options. Hope Publico succeeds!
Thanks Antoinette! Sorry we underwhelmed with the food and drinks. I hope you visit us again soon and we can change that. Glad to hear you love the space though. Joe Marotta General Manager
It was a great time! Thank you for making the birthday celebration special!
Glad we could! Hope you see you again soon. Joe Marotta General Manager
Awesome yet again. Roof was open over the indoor patio and it was a great time. Also the breakfast burrito was wicked good.
Thanks Garrison! The Breakfast Burrito was a new addition to the menu. Glad you enjoyed it. Hope to see you again soon. Joe Marotta General Manager
Was my first time there and is now one of my favorite brunch spots.
So glad to hear it. Please visit again real soon. Hopefully we can be one of your favorite dinner spots too! Joe Marotta General Manager
SUCH A COOL PLACE! Amazing seating areas, inside and outside....very unique menu items and brunch cocktails to die for. Especially the large format cocktails for groups. An unforgettable experience...we loved it.
Thank you so much Elizabeth. Please come back and visit us again real soon!! Joe Marotta General Manager
Love Publico!! Food is amazing, drinks are well made, a very fun atmosphere for sure and the staff is great!! 10/10 good times.
The cocktails (mojito & the pressed tequila one) are fun and delicious! We had the octopus and tuna tartare appetizers and they were both yummy. The lambs chops were cooked perfectly to medium rare and the bolognese was also excellent.
Thank You so much Elizabeth!! The cocktails are new features we just added to our latest menu change. Glad you enjoyed them. Hope to see you again soon.
Food always delicious and the atmosphere was as always light and airy.
Thank You!! New menu rolling out 4/15/21. Please come back soon to try the new items.
Favorite restaraunt in Boston. The owner is a beast!
We couldn't be happier about that Max! I hope we continue to be your favorite for a long time. You should come check out our new menu rolling out 4/15/21 and ask for Theo (aka The Beast!)
Friendly and funny staff. Can’t wait till it gets warmer and the roof is open
Thanks Stewart! Our patio dining is open now weather permitting!! Joe Marotta General Manager
Great vibe in the indoor-outdoor patio. Love this place. Menu's a bit limited though
Thanks Garrison! We're rolling out a new menu April 15th and adding some new items for the summer we think are going to be a hit. Please try us out again! Joe Marotta General Manager
The chicken gyro on the Friday cafe menu is AMAZING! I cannot wait to get it again!
Glad to hear Erin! Please visit us again soon!! Joe Marotta General Manager
Publico has very cool setting, and Brussels and bacon was delicious. Our server in the bar area was very friendly and upbeat. Offered suggestions and gave honest feedback about cocktails. She was very attentive too. I believe her name was Nikita — sorry if I’m misremembering! Great service though, much appreciated!
Thank you so much! Great to hear about the service you received. I will be sure to let your server know. Please visit us again soon. Joe Marotta General Manager
Loved it. Food was great as always!! Music was awesome. Favorite place in southie.
Thank You!! Our playlist is available on Spotify ;-)
They have a kids menu which was a really nice surprise. Service was great and we’re excited about the addtl outdoor space in the front. Can’t wait to go again!
We know kids need to eat too =) We hope to see you again soon!
We love our publico family! The food is always amazing, service is always great and the drinks are incredible!
Thank You for the kind words! We hope to see you again soon Joe Marotta General Manager
Good food and service. I highly recommend their donut dessert.
