I think there needs to be more lunch choices on a Saturday afternoon. Everyone does not want breakfast. Also French fries would be nice with the sandwich instead of just chips.

Even though there were open tables and we had a reservation the hostess kept us waiting more than 15 minutes. We had to ask the waitress twice for everything: a side plate, hot sauce, water. At one point we asked for rolls, the second time we asked she said she was warming them up, the third time (20 minutes later) we asked she brought them out and they were ice cold- so much for warming them.up. I have been to Stephanie's many times and will go back the food was good as usual.

They were out of the shakshuka which was disappointing but the service was pretty good. Took us a little while to get served. The veggie omelette was tasty but nothing unusual. The pancakes and monkey bread were very good

Excellent food, great atmosphere. Service seemed distracted and had a couple of order issues, which were rectified.
Would definitely recommend and go back though, suggest be very clear with what you want...place is busy as well as the kitchen.

They tried to sit us in a booth made for children, and the cold food was also sub par at best. Sour hollandaise sauce, mushy home fries, dry monkey bread.

Excellent service, tasty food, horrible table right by the bussing station. Nothing ruins a good meal like a table right beside dirty dishes and garbage. Saving grace was the truly wonderful staff.

Went to brunch on a saturday morning at 1130. Waited over 40 minutes for the food to show up...there were 3 of us. Not a big group. Not a complicated order. When our food finally arrived, my sausage was cold in the middle. It was also obvious the plate had been sitting under the heat lamps for awhile. The server did his best to keep things moving and keep us happy! Not sure if I'll try again. Food was not worth the price.

We dined on a Saturday night. The restaurant was packed but our server was attentive and efficient. We were visiting from out of town and did not realize how large the portions were. Each of our entrees, (rib eye, bone in pork chop, and chicken pot pie) were very good. If we were local we all would have had leftovers! Our daughter who usually gets dessert was too full.

My friend's tuna tartar was spoiled. The waitress took it away right away and delivered the next choice very quickly. My pot pie had almost no chicken but was attractive.

Service and Food were IMPECCABLE. Very patient as my guest was running late.

John was our server. The food was OUTSTANDING. I had the baked haddock and my friend had the Mac and Cheese and we began with GREAT Sangria and the Onion Ring Tower.

Dinner was ended with us splitting the Smore's Skillet Sundae. A MUST HAVE.

Local friend suggested we try Stephanie's while visiting from Baltimore. Our waitress Molly, was personable and friendly. I tried a Cranberry Mule for my cocktail and found it quite delightful. The fish and chips was wonderfully prepared. And my friends parmesan fries with truffle oil were to die for!
Other than the noise, I would say this was nearly perfect!

This restaurant is really beautiful, and the food is excellent. This place is one of the very few casual/semi-fancy restaurants in Boston that serves actually good food. And it's not weird food either (no shrimp eyes or fish heads, etc.) It's familiar comfort food that is re-done in a clever way. Loved it. Great for picky eaters who don't want over-the-top menu options. Food was incredible. Highly recommended.
