Great food, friendly, fast service by Amy! Breakfast sandwich, flatbread, BLT, and berry french toast were all perfect!

Overly busy. Ten minutes to be greeted and we were told that once seated our meal would take over an hour.

Not enough staff. We waited a long time for food and when finally served they had run out of one of our entrees. We were going to a show and didn’t have time to order anything else.

My dad loved his shepherd pie. My mom also liked her chicken sandwich. Both meals were alot of food and according to them super tasty. My meal was ehhh. The salmon was super dry. Although the rice was tasty and the broccoli was perfect. All in all it was a fine pub experience, but wouldn't have the salmon again.

Wonderful service by Liam and team at our outside table. If you are looking for good Irish pub food in Boston, this is the place. If you are lucky enough to be here for the live music, even better. We'll be back!

It’s nice there’s always live music at The Bebop. On 6/9 the bluegrass band that was playing, The Mud Cells , was supposed to also be hosting a bluegrass jam before and after their set, as it was advertised on the web site. They never invited musicians up to jam despite seeing a few instrument cases in the audience. After their break, they went back up and played by solely by themselves again and then said goodnight. We drive over an hour to attend and jam. The bar itself was awesome and the food was good. Service was great!

Went to Bebop prior to show at Berklee. Although was very crowded both service and food were excellent. Conveniently located and energetic pub environment. Entertainers from Berklee show we’re visiting tables which was an added treat.

We've been twice and on both occasions have been greeted as we entered with live music and friendly staff. It can full up quickly, even early in the evening, and I understand why, when you combine great food in generous portions, a solid group of craft beers on tap and live music, it's the perfect atmosphere to relax and hangout with friends. I had the steamed mussels and a pulled pork sandwich both very good. The others in my party all commented on how good their meals tasted, especially how fresh the salads were. Our next visit will be on a Monday night, it's open mic night, and we're looking forward to hearing the talented musicians that populate the Berklee College neighborhood.

The food at Bebop needs a great deal of improvement. It by no means reflects good genuine pub food. The food was not well prepared, the quality was poor. Service was just adequate.

The ambiance is very nice, quite cozy very traditional pub-like. Its a pity the food is not better

Nice pub atmosphere. Sat upstairs. Very hot there, by the way. Fish was fresh. Spinach salad was tasty. Pulled pork sandwich was good. Portion size good. They had a live guitarist playing, who was very good. I would probably return.

Dropped in last minute before concert at Symphony Hall. Parked at a meter out front and walked to concert. All over the place with the order but all was delish! Octopus was cooked perfectly - tender and delicious. The green salad and basil dressing was a refreshing mix of goodness however the avocado wasn’t great. Finished with the Mediterranean platter and couldn’t finish it. The pita chips were perfectly crispy and salty. The falafel atop the salad was well done and not too dense. So pleased with this gem! Prices were right! Can’t wait to come back - for the food and the live music!

Made a reservation for me and my girlfriend since I was only in town to see her for a couple days. We figured that the good reviews were a good sign. We walk in at 9 o'clock, passed the band, there there's very few people in there. The only staff we saw all night were the 2 bartenders. The lady bartender took a while to get up to us after we asked if we could sit upstairs. The menu was smaller than I expected but that's my fault for not looking it up first. After being there for about 30 minutes we were finally able to order even though nothing appealed to us. Our food came out and was, honestly, the most disappointing dining experience I've had in a while. My sandwich was still cold and had basically no mustard on it, and my girlfriends was drenched in jam even though it was supposed to come on the side. We ate what we could, paid, left, and ordered a pizza. The bartender taking care of us and the music were the only positives. What is the point of making a reservation for a date if there's nobody there meant to take care of it?
