Salt shaker on the loose. Everything dry and over salted. Portion size decreased but prices increased. Such a noisy crowd at the bar along with loud hip-hop music made conversation impossible. Sad. Used to be a neighborhood favorite
Lovely quick dinner before theater. The service was quick, the wine-by-glass list was excellent, great salads, hamburgers, shrimp pasta (angel hair pasta would be betters as fettuccini!).
Very good local restaurant
Entire experience was better than "very good", everything was excellent. Hope to return soon.
Although we had to wait for our table, the manager Nate did an exceptional job of making us feel welcome and kept us informed of what was going on. The food was worth the wait. The scallops were some of the best I have ever had and the portion was large enough that I had leftovers for lunch the next day. Also recommend the Pita chip and 3 dip appetizer. Thanks Nate for taking care of us. We will be back.
UPDATE: The food and drinks were good. But I had a very disconcerting experience when I left my credit card in the payment folio. The manager confirmed the next day that it was there and said he'd keep it in the safe. When I returned to pick the card up, he couldn't locate it after 40 mins of searching. No explanation at the time, only apologies and a promise to keep looking. After a week, I canceled the card and alerted my bank, causing me great inconvenience in updatinf autopay accounts. To the manger, Nate's, credit, he diligently searched and found the card after the fact. He refunded my meal ans all is well. So I have revised this review.
Truly disappointing experience. We’re all locals and have been going to Stephi’s since they opened years ago. Always loved it. Not sure if there’s been a change in management but the service was awful. Made a reservation for 7:15pm and was seated at 8:30pm. The manager only came over well after 8pm - and after we already made two trips to the hostess stand (initially we were told it would be a 10 minute wait). Made having a reservation totally pointless.
Waitress and host were very nice. Kitchen was slow, food was bland and not prepared in keeping with the description on the menu. For the price the value was not there.
We went for a late dinner and were seated promptly the service was fantastic and had a large menu of comfort food and healthy options. Great glass of wine as well. Very satisfying all around.
Good pre theater dinner destination. Consistently good food. Tables are close together. Can be noisy
The service was excellent and the appetizer was okday but the entree was not very good at all. The wine by the glass was so-so.
Excellent food, good service, but boy was it noisy!
very disappointing. little positive to say. we had tickets for the theater afterwards and told our waiter. We also told our waiter that one of our party had a food allergy (lactose intolerance). Nevertheless, her served us bread which had butter and did not bother to tell us. At about the time we were due to be served our appetizer, the waiter then informed us that the appetizer we ordered had butter in it. So, we were delayed. We order the shrimp scampi and the pasta was very thick and heavy. totally wrong for the dish. We told the manager who apologized and said it should have had angel hair pasta. To his credit, he comped our appetizers. To top it off, the noise level was so high, we had to shout at the other couple we came with on the other side of the table. There was absolutely nothing positive about this dining experience. We will not be back
We were last here about 6 months ago. A new menu is offered with some standards but many new creative items. A start with one of the best tuna tartare in the city. Salmon on yam fries and spinach was extremely well done. Drinks are well made and service friendly and professional. A great place to stop before theatre or after work.
Just a nice fun, relaxing place to be. Close to the theater.
First time here. Glad I made a reservation as it was very crowded for brunch. Menu was good and seemed to have a good selection of items/something for everyone. Took a while to get our meals but luckily we weren't in a hurry. Server was friendly and food was good.
Staff and management were very friendly and the meals were presented nicely and very tasty!
We waited over an hour for our food. The waiter never came over to our table to check on us. Once we got our food, it was cold and the waiter never apologized. Once we received our hot food, it was tasteless. Bottom line, the food and service were both awful. I will never eat here again.
Always a good time. Great place for the whole family. Staff always accommodating.
Loved the food and the space. The service was not great... we asked for a few small things- ie. napkins, waters, etc. that just never came after multiple requests. The food runners had no idea which tables had ordered what so we’re just wondering around the small space offering what they had brought out to every table until they got the right one FINALLY.
Lovely ambiance. Waiter was superb. Food was amazing. Can’t wait to go back!
BDay dessert for Mema (88 years young)
Power out and no heat on a cold day, so we headed to this local neighborhood resto. The resto had about 7 customers in it besides us. We share app, it was barely warm. We let it slide, then our meals came - fish and shepherds pie, they were literally cold to the touch. I stuck my finger right through the shepherds pie and the inside was as if it was pre-made and just taken out of the fridge. We sent both meals back and they reheated the fish to a disgusting rubber texture rather than start over. The shepherds pie was just warm but edible, but the gravy was barely warm too. Total disappointment, but not surprised. This has happened before at Stephies. We used to love this place, now we will never return.
The brunch food looked delicious, however 3 of us at our table went for the salads and they basically consisted of bland lettuce on the bottom, some meat on top. The salad price ($17-$18) was not worthy of what was served. Having more items blended into the lettuce mix - cucumbers, tomatoes. celery, carrots, green beans. marinated mushrooms, roasted red peppers, olives - almost anything would make your offering much more attractive. The salads could use a presentation update. Make your own Bloody Mary was fun - but they were made mostly with mix and minimal alcohol.
Menu looked great, but the food came out over salted and not to the descriptions in the menu. Wait staff was spread thin and over taxed by a large group sat after we arrived.
My friend and I shared two dishes. The lobster guacamole was a creative mix with large pieces of lobster immersed in a Mexican ambiance with roasted corn and avocado. It was full of surprises and delicious. The branzini was prepared with a crunchy and flavorful crust and delicate, tender meat. I recommend both. The service was friendly and knowledgeable without being intrusive.
Had dinner with some out of town relatives. Everyone enjoyed. Our waiter was very congenial. and patient Everyone enjoyed their meals. I had the scallop special over sweet corn risotto. It was very tasty.
Took 10 minutes to get water, then 10 more minutes to get a kids menu. We ordered sandwiches and burgers which boasted "brioche buns" and we ended up with some type of wheat hamburger bun looked like it had come from a bag at CVS and disintegrated making it impossible to eat our sandwich and burger without a fork and knife. Googled images of what they usually looked like and figured out something was way off. But we were starving and our waitress never came back after someone else dropped our food so we ate it. When we were done and she came back we asked about the bun situation and she confirmed that they were their normal buns. Then the table next to us received their burgers and the plate looked entirely different. Drinks weren't great either. Service was mediocre to poor.
Small neighborhood spot. Service was not pleasant and in the back on his phone every time we needed something. I actually had to get up and interrupt his texting to get another drink order. Food was just ok.
Excellent service and ambiance for brunch. I got the skillet breakfast and if was fantastic (and huge). Definitely worth five stars, and worth the trip. On the less perfect side, my girlfriend was a bit underwhelmed by her crab benedict (she preferred my food, much to my chagrin) but certainly did enjoy it and had no real complaints, it just didn't blow her away. Finally, we both really enjoyed splitting their take on a pop-tart. We plan to return.
I hadn’t been here in years but when I knew I was coming to Boston, I had to come back!! I had brunch here and it was as amazing as I remembered it!! I had an executive mimosa with my ham & cheddar omelette. There is nothing like a PERFECTLY cooked omelette!! It was amazing! The Home fries were really tasty too!!
My friends has the breakfast nachos and brioche French toast which they also raved about. I can’t wait to come back to Boston so I can hit up Stephi’s again!!
Funny thing..I hit the Stephi’s at the airport on my way home the next day. Best turkey club and truffle fries.....yummmm!!!
Our house-guests chose to take us there for a dinner. The food was great and the service and attention fantastic.
The food is always delicious and the service is excellent, great martini's.
Thoroughly enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner Stephi’s style. Our waiter, Jonathon, made the evening that much better with his pleasant and impeccable service.
We were seated at a weird non-table right by the door.
We love Stephi’s, but this time was off.
Despite the restaurant being only half full, we were jammed next to other patrons.
Ordered more coffee, which came, but had to ask for cream. Server cleared silverware with app plates - not replaced.
Most problematic -
I have an allergy to sulfites (in wine), so I asked about my meal (eggs Benedict), and then specifically the sauce. I was assured both were fine. 40 minutes later out comes my Benedict ... with no sauce. The runner said right, no sauce because it has wine. I asked for our server, who came over and said the same thing. I asked why he had said it was okay when it wasn’t, and he said he found out when he put the order in. I asked why he hadn’t come back to ask, because why would you assume I wanted Benedict with no Hollandaise, and he said I could order something else if I wanted. I was so annoyed - no one came to the table in between ordering and service (which was 40 minutes!) and asked if I wanted to keep my meal without the sauce! I would’ve switched my order then so that we could’ve eaten together. No apology, just told it was fine if I wanted to order something else. At this point my friend has her meal. I ordered something meatless thinking it would be fast, or at least rushed, nope. Took 25 more minutes.
No manager ever came to apologize or check on us. The server took it off the bill, but it was more the total inconvenience to us (which could have been avoided).
We finished our Bloody Mary’s and were never offered another one.
We left, and went to Beehive for better food and cocktails.
For a $100 bill (without my meal), I would’ve expected better service.
Went for my twin friends’ birthdays. My experience there in general was lovely. Our server was friendly and was kind enough to take our photos. Had their Boston Creme Pie (OMG - amazing!!!). We did have to wait a bit, and weren’t sat until quite awhile after our reservation time. As a restaurant host myself, I didn’t appreciate the service received by the host upfront. I did make the reservation last minute, but he gave off condescending vibes, and was fake-friendly if you will. I would recommend this restaurant, but be wary of their hosts.
Great service! Food was prepared well, and brought out promptly. Winter sangria was delicious.
Overall very nice. A good location to dine prior or after the theater.
My wife and I went out for our 26th Anniversary and we wanted to go someplace in the South End. This place was inviting, and the prices were moderate. The food was fine, the service was good......our waitress was new. I would definitely go back again.....I must try the pizza!!
