Railstop Restaurant & Bar
From the moment you step into Rail Stop Restaurant & Bar, the experience is one of vintage elegance. Mahogany paneling and gas lantern chandeliers provide a warm, timeless setting for our dry-aged steaks, chops, fresh seafood, and acclaimed world-class wines. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
Looks like it would be a great lunch spot. We ordered off the wine and Dine menu that had limited options but it was worth it for the price
The food was excellent except it took quite a long time to arrive and to add insult to injury the table next to us order later and received their food faster. I mentioned that the food took a long time and our server was like a ghost not to be seen and they apologized but they were slammed. Oh yeah maximum occupancy is 280 and including us there was 32 people in the restaurant.
Railstop is located convenient to my house and to public transportation. Parking is also available on the street or in a large adjacent parking lot. The ambiance is warm and very pleasant. On a Saturday night the noise level was surprisingly low, despite full attendance. Service was cordial and prompt. The prices are reasonable.
Valentine’s Day was very well spent at Rail Stop. Our waiter was tentative and provided great suggestions. Our drinks and food were on point. Definitely a must go back on my list.
Beautiful spot!!! Great food, great service and great atmosphere!! We love it here.
The Railstop looks like a new addition to the burgeoning development in Allston along the rail line. It is not intimate but it has a pleasant ambiance. The food is good but not exceptional. The service was very good although we were there early in the evening for an event at WGBH. It is worth a try IMHO.
The service is really slow. Our waitress was great, but every time that I’ve been, it has taken an excessive amount of time for the food to arrive when it’s not even crowded.
Our waiter Xavier was funny and knowledgeable about the entire menu as well as how the specialty drinks are made through the mixology process. He was attentive and made us laugh. We had a fantastic time and would definitely come back. We would also ask to be seated in Xavier’s section.
Great atmosphere but pricey meager drinks. Mussels app and truffle fries were great.
The menu has changed for the BETTER. They now offer a great assortment of salads, appetizers and entrees at good prices. I am so glad they got rid of the pretentious menu for one with lots of options. The restaurant may now survive. I was worried that we wouldn't go back,but luckily they made changes.
Mediocre food, very noisy. My Caesar salad was limp and the prime rib sandwich was composed of brown, not pink, thinly sliced beef which seemed to have been under a warming light. Not what I would call prime rib!
LOVED IT. So many delicious options on the menu, it was hard to pick just one! Alcohol selection was good too. Very cozy, unique, and comfortable environment . Good for groups. Would definitely recommend and will return.
Went here for a quick evening meal before attending an event in the area. What a delightful discovery!
A lovely, open, airy space with wood and stone accents, subdued lighting, and a long elegant bar that wound gracefully from front to back of the restaurant. The menu had small plates options in addition to entrees and sandwiches (always a plus in my book), the cocktail menu was fun and interesting, and the food was excellently prepared, nicely presented, delicious, and reasonably priced. Definitely will go back.
It was exactly what I was hoping it ewould be. Had my grandchildren (ages 14-16) they loved it.
I don’t drink alcohol, so I do what I normally do when visiting a cool, trendy place with great cocktail options and asked for a mocktail. Bartender #1 says, “well, it’s not gonna be much.” And he did not disappoint because it was literally soda water, lime juice, and a fruit juice (I think strawberry). He didn’t shake it- no garnish- nothing.
“Fluke!” I say to myself. So I decide to ask a different bartender for a mocktail to see what he whips up. I suggested something mojoto-like but end up with lime juice and soda water. Even worse than the first! Now, I don’t mind paying $5 for a mocktail, but ya gotta make it worth the $5!
My meal was great, but my partner’s wasn’t at the quality that we were expecting. Fortunately, they were good about fixing the issue and made a solid recommendation on a different meal.
Would we go back- maybe. Recommend to a friend- maybe not until we try again.
Great option in the Boston Landing area. Cool vibe with great menu and drink selections.
Great cocktails. Fantastic space. Looking forward to next visit.
We were seated in the noisier front room in close company with a large and boisterous group. That did not hamper the service or the food so much as our hope for a quiet dinner for two. The service was prompt and attentive. I ordered the lamb loin, cooked medium and it was delectable, but a little closer to medium rare. There was ample polenta but a much smaller portion of spinach to accompany the meat. My husband ordered the tuna special over fried rice. He ordered the fish to be cooked medium well, but when it arrive a large portion of it was rare or seared. We waited for some time that to be remedied, but in the end agreed that the food overall was fresh and comforting, as good as homemade. I gave my compliments to the chef and we left for the movies satisfied.
Well appointed, great food, great service, great wine. A real gem for this neighborhood. Will be back!!!!
Second time for dinner, delicious food, wine was great- BUT- the bootlegs of wine and selection is ridiculously priced, sorry! I’ve traveled a lot, been to many restaurants, not disappointed but truly way over priced for bottles of many of the reds! I will be back for the food and excellent service no doubt.
The food was fabulous. Our server was outstanding. The kitchen was SLOW!!! We waited almost 45 minutes for a burger and a salad. I shared my feedback with the hostess on the way out. She apologized and Said they were ‘busy’. Saturday night. No wait. Empty tables. Wouldn’t say that was busy. Go if you have time - the food is worth it. Just don’t count on a speedy kitchen.
My husband and I enjoyed our first visit to Railstop. There is a variety of food options, the beer and wine list is fairly deep and reasonably priced, and we could talk without shouting. The design is also attractive. It's definitely a place we will return to.
New Year’s eve, perfect dining experience. Easy to converse, interesting cocktails, helpful and attentive staff.
good location, good service, great food, easy parking nice ambience.
Never had a meal here that wasn't excellent which is why we keep coming back.
Orders 2 martinis and both were poured to at least 1/2 inch from top of glass. Waiter removed candles from all the tables while people were still eating. Steak wasn’t as tender as the last two times I ordered it. Disappointed.
Honestly this place is amazing. Go here if you’re looking to impress someone with amazing drinks and food.
Remarkably good chicken wings...wonderful luncheon menu...magnificent Reuben sandwich...outstanding server...great lunch spot
The restaurant was mostly empty yet we were seated next to a boisterous group of 20 having a holiday party. Really? The hosts need training on how to spread the customers out.
Delicious menu with a little twist. Great service and great location. The restaurant is fun and upbeat without being really loud.
The room is beautiful , the drinks are excellent , the food is solid. The people are very nice and accommodating but the service is (has been three times now) slow. I will continue to return because it’s not crowded and food and drink are reliable - parking is easy too.
Delicious food, great service.
Lyndon waiter was professional and great! Manager, Paulo was super nice and made us feel welcomed!!
Quiet upscale ambiance - new gluten free options get an A+.
I liked the food and ambiance. It's the service at the beginning that was confusing. We didn't have a waiter for about 5 minutes. I had to ask for someone to come take our order. But the food, drinks and dessert were amazing! Will be back again.
We all had a wonderful time! The restaurant is new and clean. The food was delicious and our waitress was awesome. I highly recommend Rail Stop!
Great place that slowly being discovered
Food and drinks were expensive for what they were. Food was inconsistent with the Cod being very bland and unappealing. Clam pasta was very good. Very nice physical space and bar. But, not worth the money.
Very good meal had the cod loin service was very good excellent rolls
Hostess was not very pleasant. Food was not cooked right. Waiter was very nice but the food did not come out as ordered.
