Nice quiet place for a bite before a show at the Sinclair (upstairs). Downstairs seemed to have a busier scene.
A slightly pricey but acceptable restaurant for before the show.
Good food, but takes a while.
A wonderful find!! Great gluten free options. Server very knowledgeable about menu. Excellent beer and wine selections. Minimalist menu, everything well prepared and very tasty. will definitely return again and again.
Food lacked flavor what so ever. Utterly disappointed will not return.
Truly one of the worst dining experiences I've ever had. All around unpleasant.
We arrived on time for our reservation and were promptly seated in a nice corner booth upstairs. We had a couple of (4) cocktails - each was great. The mussels appetizer was excellent. Once we started drinking, the breeze from the cent overhead was welcomed. The broth was layered exceptionally well. We asked for more bread to finish it off! The Nashville hot chicken sandwich was pretty good. I would have wanted a bun instead of the texas toast but the texas toast wasnt bad. The fries were hot but limp. My date had the bone broth burger. It was pretty good but thought bacon might've elevated it a notch. It wasnt a busy night. Our server was excellent. The restrooms were clean. The entrance is up a flight of stairs but I did see a lift for those who needed it.
Overall it’s a very cool and eclectic place. Decor had cool vibe. Menu is small and funky...but we all found something we like and were pleased. Salmon was great as was hangar steak. Veggie burger was so-so. Very loud so was kind of tough to chat. Drinks were great. Parking right across street was a bonus.
Nice place with great vegan/GF nachos. Are here prior to a show at the ART, and it was a good choice for us. Reasonable for the area and food was good. Hostess was very unpleasant, but server was great. Cocktails are small. Server appeared knowledgable about GF and dairy free options. Would eat here again.
Food great. convenient for show. The wrist bands to cut the line was brilliant . Thanks for a wonderful evening!
Went to a show. Convenient to meet friends and grab a bite first, but menu super boring and execution just bad. Brussel sprouts were drowned in a sickly sweet sauce. Poutine and fish tacos were ok, but tortillas were stale (really!). Come for the drinks and the beer. Eat elsewhere.
The perfect dinner before the show. Great smart and attentive staff The bone marrow burger was amazing and if I could I’d order the deviled eggs daily
Just average food.
Dinner before show in their music venue.
Great food and great experience. Having dinner before a show lets you skip the line to enter music venue. We were escorted from the restaurant right to music venue, bypassing growing line down the sidewalk!
The place was gross like an old night club venue but with the lights turned on! We waited 1 hour for our order, there was only one other party in dining room. We could see the kitchen staff kind of milling around in the kitchen doing almost nothing. The food was almost inedible disgusting!!! And in the middle of all this the band down on the first floor started to play or practice...not a pretty site!! Don’t go!!
The service was good, the drinks were good, but the food was bland and unappetizing. I ordered the veggie burger and my partner had the Nashville hot chicken sandwich.
Fabulous heated outdoor patio seating. Food delicious. Good bar menu. Service was friendly and efficient. A great experience.
Lousy service, food was pretty good.
The bone marrow burger is fantastic!
wish the music was better. also the feel is not as cozy and warm as i hoped. the outoor patio is amazing but it was too cold there. inside was pretty gloomy needed a candle or something
The Steak Frites were cooked well, but sliced improperly with the grain. Wife had 1/2 chicken and said it was tasty. Pricing is a bit high for the value, especially for portion size. I left still hungry and am a 145 lb thin dude.
Brisket sandwich was excellent. Greens with it was fresh, lightly dressed, pleasant combo. My husband didn't love his bone marrow burger, thought it had an odd taste. ? related to the marrow or something else but he didn't say anything so that is not fair criticism. Overall good!
Before theatre at ART
We ate upstairs inside. The decor is a combination of leather/wood and industrial touches. I was very happy with the beer menu, though they were out of my first choice. The dinner menu was small but varied. And three interesting specials were offered. My vegan nachos were tasty and surprisingly hearty. The coffee ice cream was delicious. Our server was friendly and professional. Everything came out of the kitchen in the expected time. I would definitely go back.
We went to the Sinclair prior to going to the Hold Steady show. Food was very good with some interesting options. Beer list was good as well. We sat outside on the upstairs terrace and we will be going back
Thanks to server Julian!
Rooftop brunch was very relaxed. The wait staff were great. There were a variety of dishes and all of them were good!
The sinclair is my favorite spot! Love sitting on the patio, ordering a few apps and drinks with friends and enjoying a summer boston night. The service is always wonderful and the drink list is great
Food is pretty bad but the porch is nice!
They were out of one item (it was only 7:00), told us only after we tried to order. The salad was uninspired (greens and tomatoes sole ingredients) and the garlic appetizers were unappetizing. The best part of the experience was the rooftop seating. The staff was pleasant enough, but that cannot compensate for a lackluster menu.
Everything was fine, basic bar food that missed the mark just a little bit. We sat outside on the roof deck and unfortunately there was a mouse (or a few) running around under our feet the whole time. Took away our appetite. We let the server know and she apologized but don’t think she or any restaurant staff planned to do anything about it
surprised by the quality and presentation of the food for a performance venue. very high-end foodie in options, ingredients, preparation and presentation when I expected only good bar bites. excellent!
Not much to tell. Kitchen was backed up but even each round of drinks took an hour to get to the table. Some food was refunded so that was gracious, but it seemed odd to be that backed up on a Wednesday evening. Might try again.
It was great, but $24 for 5 or 6 pieces of gnocchi is crazy. That portion should have been an appetizer. I left quite hungry.
I’ll go back again but I only got about 7 gnocchis for $23. Really didn’t get enough to fill you up. The opposite of other places that give way too much pasta. The sauce was tasty
It was great. The staff was super accommodating and awesome. The food was excellent.
Creative and delicious food, friendly staff and efficient service. Perfect pre-show meal or any time meal, really. Kid-friendly, relaxed, hip atmosphere.
Fun place to go before a show. Gnocchi was house made and very light and delicious.
Food is awful
