Waited 5min to be acknowledged by staff to check in for my reservation. Asked to be seated farthest from the door and was seated in an alcove directly by the door. Our server didn’t really check on us.

Great in-between restaurant (meaning between high end and Pizzeria Uno)
Service is always good, staff is friendly.
Suggest reservations as it is in a prime location...Kenmore Square and BU crowd.

Our waitress was outstanding. Everyone that worked there was so nice and welcoming. I got the haddock it was fine, but wish it had a bit more flavoring and more seasoning/breadcrumbs. The two appetizers we all split were yummy -- the spinach/artichoke dip and the arancini. I definitely plan to return. I wish we knew Thursday night was trivia night. Place is so small that hard to avoid the noise of the trivia game.

The food was excellent!! However the service was slow and our table was not clean. The waitress apologized for the slow service saying "they didn't expect it to be so crowded". My friend and I thought that was odd since they are around the corner from Fenway and the Redsox were hosting the ALCS game.

I would go there again because the food was great. Hopefully the manager will cross check Fenway parks schedule and staff accordingly going forward.

Was grateful to find an open reservation in such a convenient location at last minute on a Saturday night. Should have tipped me off that this place was not in demand. Interesting menu but food mostly disappointing. Salmon and risotto both lacking in flavor. Gnocchi a weird, gummy texture. Best features were salads, the spring greens with figs, nuts and cheese, and a simple Caesar salad. Each of them was fresh and tasty.
Waitress plesant but stretched too thin. Took quite a while to order. No one clearing the dirty tables around us. Not the experience I'd hoped for.

Restaurant is a college hangout. We unfortunately were sitting next two college students who were extremely loud and used profanity continuously. Wait staff was very nice and attentive. Food was mediocre and we had to ask for bread which was cold. Great for kids but not for people forty and up.

We started with the bruschetta appetizer, which was extremely fresh and very tasty. We both got the turkey tips, with rice and a side salad, all of which were very good. Our server Marine was very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Overall a wonderful experience.

We wanted a place to eat outdoors before the Pearl Jam concert. Shared a fig and prosciutto flatbread and a grain salad and the food was delicious. The server was very attentive and extremely pleasant. Outdoor tables weren’t fancy but it was a nice laid-back way to eat great food outside. And the beer list was good too!

It’s impossible to get a table last minute before a Sox game in Kenmore. These guys had tables and the food came quickly but we were not rushed. Sangrias were amazing.

Recently went here with some friends before a concert at Fenway. The service was great. Our drinks were always full and the food came quickly. We tried the fried pickles, arincini, and calamari apps. All were delicious! I got the house burger and fries. It was tasty, but nothing too exciting. Overall we enjoyed our meal and would go back.

We to Scoozi before a concert at Fenway, based on seeing some good reviews on OpenTable. It was an all around forgettable experience, and we wouldn’t go back. We sat outside, which should have been nice, but there were bees everywhere. We were able to stick it out outside, but a couple of other tables left, and a couple were using their menus to try and swat bees on the table. We would have been able to overlook the bees if the food was good, but it was all tasteless, at best. We started with the spinach and artichoke dip, which was average, but the best thing we had. I got the house burger, which was over cooked and not very flavorful, despite having pesto and prosciutto on it. My wife had the arancini balls, which were tasteless and served in a tomato sauce that was way too sweet. She paired it with a Caesar salad that had mushy croutons and no taste. All around, it was disappointing, and we won’t go back.

We had a 5:30 reservation and arrived a few minutes early. I had put in the comments section that we would like an outdoor table. Although there were several tables on the patio open I was told they were for people with reservations, which is what we had but that was ok. We were seated way in a corner table. After over 10 minutes of not seeing a waitress the hostess came over and asked if we minded moving as the waitress could not get to us as we were so far in the corner. We moved and it was another 5-10 minutes before we saw our new waitress. After that service was better but still not great. It was busy as there was a show at Fenway that night so we gave them the benefit of the doubt. Food was very good as were drinks. Would maybe go back on a less busy night.

We were going to Fenway so booked an early reservation. Asked to sit inside but was told no available seating and the restaurant was empty. Sat outside and service was friendly, food came out promptly. Once the food came out we were bothered by bees. I got stung twice. This made our dining experience not very enjoyable.

Both are appetizers were not warm when we got them but we were pressed for time so didn’t have a chance to get them reheated after waiting for the waitress to come back. The flatbread was mediocre and the airincini balls were good but the portions were extremely small

The service was terrible. The restaurant was basically empty when we arrived and stayed that way throughout our meal. There were a few tables the whole time but there were least 3 or 4 waitresses our waitress was not busy. We all sat down and ordered and then after food was brought the waitress never came back. We all ran out of drinks and had to chase our server down to get the check. Then she never came back and we didn’t see her for quite some time and had to go to the hostess station and flag down another server to pay.

On top of the bad service our food was not good. I had a salad that was very mediocre and the “mozzarella” that was supposed to be part of it was one giant hunk of rubber store bought cheese that was just slapped on top of lettuce, croutons, halved cherry tomatoes with an ice cream scoop of avocado and three pieces of “shrimp scampi”. I could’ve made this salad- and it would’ve been better if I had. My sister had “creamy risotto” which was actually crunchy because the had chopped up celery and added to bland tasteless mush. My poor parents both got baked haddock that was almost inedible, bland white rice and the side of asparagus was burnt to a crisp.
