    It was just ok, if you want to seat outside, the noise from the cars driving by is pretty strong. The food came out pretty quickly but it was just ok, nothing special unfortunately.

    Despite the mixed reviews we decided to give The Garden a try, and we are so glad we did. The food was delicious especially the luscious pasta noodles that tasted homemade. Craft cocktails were also excellent and even include some delicious non- alcoholic options. Great happy hour specials, brunch, live music nights, and great service. Do not hesitate to give this place a try!

    This was our first visit, but it won’t be our last. The atmosphere was lovely. The host and waiter were friendly and attentive. The cocktails were stellar. We had the espresso martini and the blackberry bourbon smash. Our appetizers, the shishito peppers and crabcakes were delicious. For dinner we had the lobster fettuccine and the pappardelle alla medici. Both were delicious and perfectly prepared. Good size servings. We had leftovers. We highly recommend this gem of a place.

    We tried this place on a whim and to be honest, very pleasantly surprised. The food was really good and the service was excellent. It’s got an outside patio and indoor dining option. The mussels were my fav and they also had some great cocktail choices. I’d recommend if you can go. It’s located next to The Broken Spoke.

    The air conditioning didn’t work and they did not reach out to us to inform us of this issue. It was probably 90+ degrees inside and the experience was miserable. The food was meh, especially for the price.

    Our server/bartender Gabe made our experience so incredible! Our first time here we had mock tails that were to die for with in house made lavender syrup, the lobster bisque was also delicious with huge chunks of lobster. Will absolutely come back again to enjoy the outdoor patio during cooler weather.

    Our waiter came by to take our order and to drop it off. Other than that, I had to track him down. I had to cancel my drink order because It took so long I became full. Lastly, when i waived him down to get our check, he literally dropped the check off, said “here you go” and walked off. There was No “thank you” - “thanks for coming” - “how was your food?” - “thanks for your patience, hope to see you again”. I can understand a busy environment as waiters/waitresses have a ton of responsibility but this wasn’t that. Overall, the bill didn’t match the service/food.

    I wanted to love this place. Our server was Fantastic! The crab cakes were really good. The lobster roll was fine, but should have been better for almost $40. But the CAPRICCIOSA pizza was terrible. A thick layer of greasy oily cheese on top of a thin crust. The crust on other pizzas at other tables looked great, but the cheese made it impossible to taste on ours, there was one tiny hard piece of prosciutto on each slide and a couple of artichoke heart leaves scattered on the pizza. Really not good. Needed a lot less cheese and a lot more of the other items the description promised. But our server was truly wonderful.

    I have been wanting to try this place for awhile and so glad we finally made it. Everything was exactly how I had envisioned it. Great location with a fabulous bar area, perfect outdoor patio when the weather cools down or late night plus good food & service. The lobster fettucine was fantastic! Try it

    Overall The Garden at The 704 was very good. I enjoyed the concept of Boston Italian food. The food was well executed, particularly the frito misto, which had a wonderful fried crust and outstanding flavor. The lobster fettuccine and the umbrian fried chicken were also stand out dishes. The cocktails were good, though $12/drink seemed pretty steep for pretty basic cocktails.
