We were very displeased with the service. Our first and second course was served way too soon. I hate feeling rushed at a restaurant, it's my biggest pet peeve, so therefore I cannot recommend. The food was pretty good, but service is everything to me and that was sub par.

It was my first time going there for brunch. We had the special madI gras menu. The huevos rancheros were delicious and the staff was very friendly and attentive. The restaurant was cozy and serene. I will definitely return.

Usually the food at Towne is great. This time it was very good, but not up to its usual level. Admittedly, the bar is high for Towne, so it's still a place I'd recommend.

Overall dining at Towne Stove and Spirits was an average experience. Things were OK but very little was great. I had the sirloin steak and it was overcooked and not the quality of cut I expected for the price. My date had the lamb and that was prepared very well.

While there, my sister asked me if the restaurant had just opened because it had that feeling to it--like it was just figuring things out. However, it's been open for years. We had to ask for everything--spoons for tea we all got, salt and pepper, maple syrup for french toast. They never brought the mimosa that was ordered, so we ended up cancelling it. Everything was just difficult and not the relaxing brunch we'd hoped for. The food was pretty good, but for the price, I'd expect better.

I’ve been wanting to come here for a long time, but was unfortunately really disappointed. We walked in and waited at the host station for a solid 5 minutes before anyone acknowledged us. When the host came up he said “hey can I help you with something?” Um yes, we’d like a table? This is a restaurant?! Bizarro.

Food was super expensive and really sub par. Caesar salad had little dressing and was extremely dry. Shrimp cocktail was good. Pizza was a sham. I got the “homemade sausage” one and the vegetables were hard and it had little toppings.

I was shocked because i had initially heard really good things when this place first opened. Maybe it’s gone downhill?

I probably wouldn’t go back. The food was mediocre. I had oysters and they were fresh and delicious, the calamari was ok but the meals were a disappointment. I got the duck and it was tough, and over cooked. My friend got the salmon and it was ok not much added flavor. Dishes not worth the price.

We went for Sunday brunch at noon. It was not busy about 1/3 full in the dining room. The service was lacking in, well, service. The coffee took a long time to come and subsequently refilled. Hailed the person who had served us the coffee to ask to place a drink order and she said 'i'm not your waiter' and did not bother to get waiter. I did not order the drink. The food arrived with no jam for the english muffin. Had to ask for it, whereas usually these things are brought out along with the food. I thought it was a bit declasse for this type of restaurant for the raspberry jam to be brought out in a little plastic condiment cup, clearly it had been scooped out of a larger jar. They should have the individual little jars or a better presentation if they are scooping out of a larger jar. The best part of brunch were the breakfast potatoes, crispy, creamy, simply outstanding and plenty of them. Need to polish up the service.

Service was bit slow and spotty despite room being pretty empty. Wine list was depleted. They were out of nearly everything and we had to settle for whatever they had available. However all of our food orders were prepared very well. I'll probably be back to give them another shot, but based on this experience I am not rushing back anytime soon.

Went here 1 year ago and had a fabulous meal and experience. This time the meals were sub par and the dining room was almost empty on a Friday Evening at 7 pm. Not sure what has happened, but a definite change had occurred . Not worth the cost.

AWFUL EXPERIENCE!! Poor service, my boyfriend's plate arrived 15min than mine and we asked the waiter and she was like the other will be here shortly, (I guess we don't understand the same for shortly)...
Don't waste your time and money in go to this restaurant, you have too many better options around.

It's a shame that this place looks so nice, but doesn't have very good food. We ordered lamb and swordfish. The lamb was OK - not worth the price tag - and the swordfish was thin sliced and way overcooked. I would recommend staying at the front bar and not ordering food.

We had reservations on a Sunday night at 6pm. After dinner we were attending my anual holiday party. We was seated at our table and the server immediately came over and welcomed us.
He then said to us that there was no bartender and there was only beer and wine. Myself and my husband all fell over. You are in the city of Boston and there is no bartender. It was no fault of the server but THIS MAKES ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE.
I am out to dinner and I want a martini not beer or wine. We had to leave and go to dinner somewhere else. We told the server we were leaving and he said he hopes we can find a place . ( we went to Abe and Louie’s and it was AMAZING- no reservation the place was packed and we were sitted right away because we go there often) when we left the girl that seated us didn’t even say a word. This was a bad experience and we often go here for drinks / dinner and we won’t come back .
How a restaurant like yours has no bartender is completely ridiculous

I haven't been to Towne in awhile. We have gone there for dinner a few times upstairs and it was very good and had a nice time. This past Sunday we were there for Brunch downstairs in the back dining room with my niece and her boyfriend. It was a very nice experience: good food, service, atmosphere. It wasn't very expensive but we didn't have any drinks. We would go back. When it's warmer out in the summer they have outside seating and a band playing during brunch. We have listened from the public seating in the open area in front of the Tesla showroom. We definitely want to go back this summer for brunch and probably won't wait until then.

Experience was generally good but we would have preferred to know when booking that we would be in the bar, not the main restaurant which had a large corporate event. Bar area is chilly on a cold night (which ours was) because when diners open both doors to the restaurant, the wind sweeps in. Even the hostess was wearing a coat. Bar is noisy, but she did turn down the music so we could chat at our table.

We have visited Towne Stove and Spirits twice now because of it's convenience to the Pru and other activities nearby. Both times the hostess has been unfriendly, more of a rushed IHOP feel on a not so busy night, as well as the server was completely awkward and indifferent. He even took my appetizer plate while I was still eating. The food was bland at best. I ordered Lobster fra Diavlo which I have not had before. It was $32 and had barely any lobster meat in it. The entire visit was very disappointing. I will definitely not be rushing back anytime soon.
