A nice place to go before theatre...good food, interesting menu, good service...a little too noisy to have comfortable conversation (and we weren't the only people who commented on that)

The service was so incredibly slow. We had a reservation for 5 people, and ordered by 12:20, but the food didn't come out until 1. We weren't able to leave until 1:45 due to the slow end service (getting the check). Lunch shoudl be much faster, there isn't anything on the menu that should have taken 40 minutes to cook.

Excellent food and very good service. Not too pricey for the South End. Most importantly - even though it's owned by the Newbury St version, it is vastly different and is worth trying!

Stopped in for pre-theater dinner. Interesting menu; food fresh and tasty. We arrived early for our reservation and while there was not a table available we were immediately seated at a perfectly comfortable banquette by the bar and the entrance so we could not assess the ambiance. Would definitely return.

I'm from New Jersey and I was up to Boston with my family visiting my oldest daughter at BU. We needed a place to have Easter brunch and found your restaurant on line. Wow were we impressed. Not only was the wait staff great, the brunch menu was extensive ( something for my 11 year old and my 17 year old ). The real surprise came in the Bloody Mary Menu selections..........and it was made to perfection. A great success, so much so I have already spread the word to a co-worker who is heading up to Boston this weekend.

I ate here last Friday for Lunch. I got the tomato basil soup and the chicken mozarella sandwich. I ended up taking the chicken and mozarella out of the sandwich as the bread was really heavy. Food was good for lunch and the resturant was packed by 1pm. Great locatioin but the server's could be a bit more friendly.

The food was outstanding. Noise level was a bit high for conversation x 4 people, due to dining area right next to the bar. Overall, we had a terrific time and would go back again.

Located in the vibrant South End neighborhood and close to theatres, this restaurant fills the bill for a quick bite before moving on with your evening or for a drink and bar bites after work. The front of the house staff still needs some work in "welcoming" diners and the seating in the dining room reminds one of a train station. However, the food is reliable and the wait staff are professional and friendly. Overall a good choice.

We felt quite unwelcomed when we first arrived. Both the man and woman at the desk seemed as though they could care less that we were there. Our server, Zach, made up for it. He was professional and polite. The turkey salad was overwhelmingly large with huge slices of turkey on top of a mound of mostly iceberg lettuce. The dressing was good, but the salad was unappetizing. The worst part was the server (not Zach) reaching over my husband and asking me to grab it, instead of coming around to serve it to me. Both my husband and son had the hot turkey sandwich and were satisfied. The bar area looked lively and fun, but a conversation could not be held in the dining area because of the bar noise and music. We like Newbury rest, but not here.

Great time! Food was excellent and they even had a "make your own bloody mary" menu, which was a fun extra touch (delicious bloody mary's too!). Really liked that they accept reservations because that can sometimes be hard to find in the South End.

Overall it was a good experience. Had lunch with some business partners from out of town. Great location with lots of light and pleasant decor. Salads were plentiful and well prepared. Our waiter disappeared for a while so we were left waiting for coffee and our check. The only other negative was the burnt smell coming from the kitchen that somehow stayed on my clothes for the entire afternoon. Again, we enjoyed lunch but there were a few kinks that, if worked out, would have made it even better.

Called ahead for a reservation on a sunday night, our table was right next to a post, between the back door and the coat check room, despite the fact that the restaurant was only partially full. Stefi's should definately eliminate this table. Ordered clam chowder it arrived as a bowl of large chunks of potatoes with some clam gravey on top served cold without a spoon. So bad looking that the hostess offered me another bowl with my spoon. Also ordered duck and cod which were fine although by that time we were totally turned off by our "dining" experience.

Stephi's has a wonderful staff - from the Maitre d to the server, we were treated special. The Saturday/Sunday menu includes a brunch that looked good. We opted for a lunch menu. My husband's turkey salad was exceptional - but he'd have loved some bread versus the crunchy large croutons. My burger was delicious and cooked exactly like I'd asked. However, the bottom part of the roll was soaked - not in grease but what appeared to be moisture. The place was so busy that I decided not to return it, feeling that I wouldn't get it back very quickly. Stephi's is small and very loud. We were sitting at a small table but could not converse easily. Although the food and wine were good, I would only return on a weekday - less noise!

As usual, the food was good and the drinks were well made (and tend to be tart). However, I've never seen Stephi's so loud before. Perhaps, I just go on off times; but there were 3 loud groups. Hopefully it was just a fluke, as I will be returning.

Food: Duck spring rolls were delicious. The tuna tartare was as expected and did not disappoint. I had the skirt steak cooked to the chef's recommendation. The steak was cooked beautifully and with a lot of flavor. Excellent sweet potatoes and I even loved the sprouts. Bacon always helps. My parents had the cod (the chowder was easily the best part of any dish on the table) and the Thanksgiving sandwich, which just can't be wrong. Beer selection could be better.

Service: Our server - Mark, I believe - was extra gregarious and took care of us with ease. His recommendations were spot-on and honest.

Setting: Classy, comfortable, quiet enough for conversation with my hard-of-hearing dad.
