One of our meals (ravioli) was a smaller portion than expected. The salmon, however, was average size. Both were delicious. The roasted Brussels sprout starter was amazing!

Great wine choices. I felt the chocolate mousse stood out as the showstopper above the very good meal. Get there early on a Friday, and you'll have a very quiet experience. My 3.5hr experience (by choice) was fantastic with a great attentive server the entire time. She checked in at all the right times.

Well, the food was excellent, as per usual. Sadly, it’s the coldest day in Boston I can ever remember, and we were seated at a table right near a door... each time it was opened there was a blast of literally arctic chill. Service was also a bit subpar, we had to ask for milk and spoons to stir our coffee.

Loved it for Saturday brunch. Very busy, great ambience in the bar and downstairs by the fire. Noisy, but tight cozy space. Excellent, efficient and friendly service. Food was fine.

The quality of food seems to have gone down, not the attention to detail, taste and appearance that it used to have.

Great atmosphere, great food. Small bakery with intimate seating in back makes for a fun ambiance and home cooked feeling.

South End Buttery is always a good choice, especially for brunch. The dining areas are cozy, staff is attentive, and the food is consistently well prepared and delicious. Highly recommended.

Food was good, service wasn't, our server never asked us we needed refills, we were sitting there for some time. Very young servers and, they spent a lot of time talking with each other rather than taking care of the customers.
