Met here for a year-long overdue get together with friends. Had a reservation and were seated promptly. Two of us had the breakfast taco with pork belly and pickled kimchi (changed from daikon on online menu) - was delicious and plenty of food! The other ordered the red quinoa dish with pesto, eggs, broccoli and avocado; it was also tasty and a plentiful portion. Also ordered the side potatoes w/ aoli and the banana bread toast to share - both superb. Unique flavorful dishes that were modestly priced. It was a lovely sunny day so we sat on the beautiful brightly colored patio, our waitress was kind and always one step ahead. It was not very busy, which was surprising and may be because it is a few blocks off the busy Boylston/Fenway area? Would recommend and return; thank you Tapestry!

Exceeded expectations. Very nice hanger steak and grilled trout with simple but very effective and tasty preparations. Small but nice selection of wines by the glass and custom cocktails. We sat in the bar section as it was a Tuesday. Definitely will go back.

This place is basically tapas- but really good! The drinks were also good. The bar was a little slow, but that seemed situational. The room can be loud if you want a quiet date night, might not be good, but get together with friends, or something more substantial than pizza or grill if you are headed to a Red Sox game- give it a try!

Service wasn’t great. It took us over an hour to get all of our food. It took us over 20 minutes to get drinks besides water. I have allergies and when I asked the waitress and support staff what was in the drinks they said - look at the menu and that’s what’s in it.. I didn’t know what some of the things were when I read the menu which is why I asked the servers.

They weren’t knowledgeable about the food or drinks and were extremely slow.

The restaurant was not full so I’m guessing it was possibly new wait staff. The server didn’t check in on us once and we could only order when she came to the table to drop off something or when we could get her attention running by.

The restaurant - once you walk through it's seemingly random and completely opposite brother bar - is beautiful. Great decor and vibes and much nicer than the entrance lets on. However, the restaurant was freezing - the fireplace merely a facade. The food was mediocre at best. We all should have gotten the pancakes. The donut holes were dry and hard and tasted like they had been sitting out for a day or so. The huevos rancheros and shakshuka both came highly recommended but were incredibly salty and lacked any other flavor. We also waited almost an hour for our food - do not come hungry.. Our server was wonderful and the bloody mary was excellent but, overall, it was not worth the price and I would not make the trip to go back.

Second time at Tapestry, and same good experience. There are two different spaces, with different menus - the first more of a pub menu, the other a little more refined. We sat on the more "grown up" space, but we ordered from the pub menu - the more refined menu doesn't have many non sea-food options.
Service was excellent.

The food was really overpriced for the quantity and quality. The dishes seemed mismatched and not really cohesive. The oysters were great, but the service wasn't so we still don't know what the oysters were or where they came from. We didn't get any explanation on any of the dishes as they were dropped off at our table. The deviled eggs were odd and extremely expensive for one egg and a thick slice of cured meat, the pierogies were okay but lacking something and not really much better than something you can get in the grocery, and the chicken roulade was burned beyond reason and drenched in several sauces that all blended together to be quite unpleasant. Overall we left hungry, and spend around 100$ for two people and one drink each.

Everything about it was great! The atmosphere was fun but calming at the same time. It felt so relaxed, but it could also be fancy. The food was AMAZING. From the fried pickles to the hanger steak. I was extremely happy with everything. The portions were perfect and kept me satisfied without feeling overly full. It was an overall great experience, I will definitely be back again!

Our group of five practically ordered everything off the menu and the food was spectacular. The bartender was even able to make a drink not listed on the menu and is usually hard to make without the necessary ingredients; Pain Killers

The kitchen chefs above and beyond so welcoming and helped enrich our experience. This restaurant has wonderfully amazing food, and is great for any occasion: first date, anniversary, birthdays etc. I would highly recommend their unique dishes, the desserts are out of this world, the pizzas are cooked to perfection, the hanger steak (I had this last time is delicious), and I love their unique take on all different cuisines.

I had made a review through Open Table to eat at Tapestry's Club Room. Turns out when I arrived, the Club Room was "under construction." We ended up eating at the Expo Room, where we got a very good pizza but ate in a poor ambiance environment with equally poor service. Would like to try Club Room but disappointed in Open Table and Tapestry for not communicating the fact that this part of the restaurant was under construction.

Creative culinary fair. Chef had put thought into the mix of textures, flavors and spice. The lounge area was well done, sophisticated but not overstated. Was my first visit here, would come again if in the area.

This is our third time. The food remains deceptively simple, but very tasty. Unusual combinations, like a slightly spicy whey mignonette make this little gem a real find and delight to dine at. There was an error with the timing, and without prompting, the chef/owner came out with our meal, apologized, and offered a free round of drinks. That's real class and a smart way to run a restaurant.

Sat in the back room, definitely a much quieter and intimate vibe than the front bar area. Great food and great service. They recommended 2-3 plates per person, but we were pretty full with 2/person

My boyfriend and I had high hopes for Tapestry for our Valentine’s date, but unfortunately a reservation mix-up and subpar food contributed to a less-than-stellar experience. Tapestry called me twice day of to confirm my reservation, and I called back to confirm between those two calls, and was told I was all set. When my boyfriend went up to get our reservation, he was told that they didn’t have a reservation under my name but that they could seat us anyway. We ended up ordering the crab rolls, chicken kebab and the spelt pasta, all of which were way too salty and far too highly priced for the amount of food on the plate. I don’t mind paying a lot for small plates if the food is really good, but that was not the case here. At the end of the night, I also got a notification that said I hadn’t attended my reservation, which just added to the frustration regarding front of house communications for reservations. I will say that our waitress was personable and attentive, and my boyfriend enjoyed his cocktail, but we likely will not be coming back here.

The room is lit by a four sided glass fireplace, making the space warm and inviting. The seating is lovely and is varied. Big banquettes for 8-10 people, smaller round tables with comfortable club chairs. We began with a double order of oysters, seasoned and ready for the squeeze of fresh wedges of lemon. After that, we pretty much ordered everything on the menu including all three desserts. Plates are for sharing so you get to get a taste of everything. Considering how much we ordered, and drank, because the cocktails are also delicious, we did not leave feeling stuffed. From the calamari, cauliflower, salad, crispy fish, liver pate, tuna poke, and the amazing desserts, everything was fresh, surprising and worth the trip to what was once a grimy rock club, The Linwood...

I went on a Sunday, only to find the Club Room was closed. Instead, I paid the same price to eat in what is essentially an upscale college pizza bar. The food was not as good as the Club Room, despite the menu being advertised as the same. They did turn the music down request, but its definitely not a place to pay $15 dollars parking to take a guest. Oh, well.

Great place to try some unique spins on familiar dishes. Brussels sprouts were the standout dish. Oysters Rockefeller were amazing too!
The restaurant is the spot to go as the bar is lacking. My wife ordered Sangria and got something I honestly almost spit on the bar.
I got a Mojito and the bartender used Tequila! Lol
Soooo..... maybe just treat yourself to some great tapas style dishes here and save the drinks for Boylston st. After.

My review would have likely been higher if it were not for the service that we received. The small plates come out as they are made, which is nice. The food overall was pretty good, though on the salty side (which is saying a lot because as a long distance runner, I don't believe in too much salt). The sauces were incredible. However, our server was MIA for most of the meal. We would have likely ordered another drink, but she was busy chatting with the bartender or cleaning a table (despite not being busy). We ordered dessert and coffee and the coffee didn't arrive until 10 minutes after our dessert. We waited over 30 minutes for our check. For a restaurant with this price point, I expect way better service.

This is my second time at Tapestry. I still don't know quite what to make of it. It has three distinct looks: outdoor dining is on what appear to be plastic tables and the lighting lacks any ambiance. Indoors are game tables and a fantastic looking pizza oven, and then the "fine dining room." Here, the wall decor is kind of tiki bar, but the furnishings aren't. Food is fantastic and inventive. Wine list is brief, but has a good selection of interesting wines. They seem to have an interesting cocktail menu. Service was ok, but a little too casual for the room, and a little bit slow at the beginning. I want this place to succeed. Great oysters and tuna poke.

I was very annoyed that I had not been warned that the Club Room is not available on Tuesdays. Open Table explicitly states that on-line reservations are for the Club Room, but on Tuesdays that is not the case. The other room is MUCH more casual, which was not what I was looking for for this particular occasion.

It was nice that they still offer the Club Room menu even though the room itself was closed, and the food was very good.

This is the best restaurant in Boston. Anyone who wrote a bad review must be tasteless mindless- braindead. The food is incredible and creative, not pretentious at all and the environment is warm and inviting. The beverage program is easily one of the most sophisticated in the city, the food is out of this world and both are fairly priced.

Chicken was served undercooked. The waitress brought it back to the kitchen and confirmed it was undercooked, but then brought us another plate of undercooked chicken. Manager didn't seem concerned about it at all.

Servers were slow and unattentive. Several other patrons made a point of saying that they were leaving early because their food was taking too long to arrive.
