Terrible. No better than Applebee’s
The food was fantastic but our waitress was very unattractive and left us alone for long periods of time even though we had been finishing our drinks. They were out of the first two wine selections I want wanted but explained they were running thin because they were renovating and offered me a better bottle for that price which was the right thing to do.
The service here was great and the food was pretty typical brunch offerings. I had the chicken and wafffles and my friend had the duck confit hash.
Great brunch place, food was really really good! (Ordered the hash and eggs, and my girlfriend ordered Eggs Benedict). Service was really slow and unorganized.
I made a reservation for brunch. The food tasted good but took an hour to come out and then I had to send it back because it was cold.
Burgers were delicious and service was timely. Will go back again!
No music, very quiet inside, food was just ok. Waiter was nice. But nothing remarkable about brunch here
When I made reservations, I noted my allergies, yet that wasn't addressed whatsoever. So, I said something to the Server and went over my allergies in detail. I asked him about three entrees that I was considering - he came back after speaking with the kitchen and told me the kitchen could make me any of the three and accommodate my allergy. Unfortunately, the dish didn't come as prepared. Of course, I sent it back and requested a Manager. After a lengthy discussion, the kitchen made me up a different side to go with my steak - I was confused on why this wasn't discussed prior. My Hubby was already done with his entrée by the time they fixed it - although the Manager did offer to comp the steak and our drinks, we declined. We had a Gilt City G.C. that we decided to use as we didn't want to come back again.
But, that wasn't everything that was wrong. First, the restaurant was relatively quiet with quite a few servers and assistants on the floor, yet I ordered a red sangria - out came a white wine, not a sangria. Of course, I sent that back and waiting awhile for the correct drink to be made. Also, how does a restaurant run out of Still Bottled Water, yet they didn't have this available (Saturday night). Also, the Server took my drink order, yet never asked my Hubby what he wanted .
Ground Pepper - had to request - wasn't offered when salads were served. The pepper shaker was empty. The server had to get a new one. So, then the Server put pepper on my salad, but again didn't ask my Hubby if he wanted some as well - I had to interject and say something - although our server was new, the service was overall very poor.
When Towne Stove and Spirits first opened and for a few years after, it was a fun place to go. Not anymore - the restaurant is like a ghost town on a Saturday night. My prediction is this restaurant won't be around much longer - way too many problems.
Do yourself a favor and skip Towne Stove and Spirits.
The food was ok, we had the salmon, calamari and chicken. The cocktails were great! The ambiance and service were perfect for an intimate date night.
Warning No Valet Parking !!!
I don’t know many fine dining restaurant that don’t offer valet parking, but Towne Stove & Spirits is one
PS I asked for the Manager to stop by regarding the lack of valet parking and I was told he was busy.
I won’t be back
Wow. What a night of mistakes. First the servers delivered our starters to the wrong table. When they corrected It, my half dozen oyster starter came with five not six. When dinner came, my dining partner’s plate was so scalding hot he burned himself. The pain was coupled with the plate completely over cooking the salmon. Why would a plate of salmon ever be that hot? Did they microwave it? The server was made aware of this, apologized and nothing more. My dining partner asked for a different less overcooked salmon on a normal plate. It took about 20 minutes to get the replacement, long after I finished my meal. The sever offered no apology for the food. No apology for my associate’s burned finger. Didn’t even offer to comp the salmon or maybe comp us a dessert. One of the most clueless and ridiculous dining experiences I’ve had in forever. I travel for business all the time and to all who do I highly recommend you go next door to Eataly or Capital Grille on the opposite side. Simply horrendous and frankly embarrassing for a business dinner. Never again!
Menu is very limited and wines are expensive. Our service was also very slow. But worst of all, it's a very noisy space with all hard surfaces and large tables with groups celebrating various occasions.
Very good lunch options and quiet dining area.
The lobster quesadilla is to die for.
Service was nonexistent. I ordered a drink and they substituted a liquor without even offering. Steak was not well prepared and the bartender was less than hospitable.
Very good food. Great service.
Went here for my 30th anniversary. Absolutely nothing special for a very expensive place. we left hungry and had to get a piece of pizza. We always have our salad with dressing on the side. They put the dressing on when we asked for it on the side. No bread came with it. Meals were 36-43 dollars. Tasted good but we left hungry. no mention of our special anniversary.
Great food and great service. Definitely going back.
Convenient to convention center
Overpriced for quality
This place must be closing. They sat us downstairs in the dingy lounge because they stop serving in the nicer restaurant upstairs at 830 (845 res on a Sat night in Boston and not busy?) . The place was dark. The martini was bad despite a revision. The food was very good, but the ambiance was terrible. This used to be a happening fun place, but now its dead and sad!
I haven’t been to Towne in years. This was my favorite restaurant in Boston: I loved he atmosphere, the food is great, the service was impeccable and I always had a great time there. This time, I brought friends early on a Sunday because we had plans afterwards. We were the ONLY people in the restaurant. It was odd. The whole experience really missed a bustling atmosphere. Also, the music was weird - kind of soft rock maybe? I don’t know. Seemed like it turned in to an “older” crowd restaurant, which I wouldn’t have expected.
My friend's meal was inedible and had to be sent back. Meat was burnt on the outside and literally raw on the inside
Only 1 other table full in large dining room and we were placed so that I was looking directly into the kitchen. With a reservation we were placed at the worst table in the entire dining room. We ended up at a table that was noisy due to the bar.
The lack of patrons was an indication that others have had a similar experience.
It is worth noting that the inedible entre was graciously switched for another option.
With so many great options I recommend passing on this restaurant.
We we're sat by the window as asked which was great. It was a lovely night and got to see a pink sunset over Boston. We orders the lobster popover which was very yummy with 2 small half tails stuffed inside and honey. Boyfriend had the rack of lambs which were 3 pieces. Nicely charred even I had a couple of bites. I ordered the Long Island duck. It was supposed to be medium but on the rare side which was fine with me. Overall dinner was delish. Price was on the higher end but occasionally it's nice as a treat. Service was excellent.
I won't recommend this restaurant because it fell short on every measure of a good culinary experience. There was only one server for the entire restaurant, there was no bartender, the espresso machine was broken, and the food was greasy and lackluster. The manager did comp us a round of drinks but it wasn't redemption for the overall bad experience. Furthermore, my husband and I didn't feel well about an hour after the meal. Save your $, time, and health by avoiding this venue.
Came with a Nift giftcard. The prices were reasonable for Back Bay and we enjoyed our meal just fine, but it wasn't anything special. The service was alright -- took a while to have our order taken and get our bill but the food came out promptly. It was fine with the giftcard but I don't think we'll be going back.
Margarita muddled with blackberries from the cocktail menu was delicious. Bar has tables by windows; good for people watching. We dined on the first floor on a Saturday evening, close to opening time. Many empty tables at that time and bar in the room was not in use. Food was tasty. Menu was surprisingly small, somewhat limited. We were there on a beautiful, warm summer, weekend evening yet outdoor space was not set, nor did it look that inviting (eg no umbrellas and/or heat lamps). Women's bathroom floor (in stalls) was littered with toilet paper.
The places smelled like raw sewage, had little alcohol selection and the seafood platter was a joke. The lobster tail was the size of a shrimp. It's going out of business, don't bother.
Service was bad...food was worse than expected. Not worth the price they charge.
Excellent drinks and home fries!
The food was good, and the pastries that were given were great, however, the grits were terrible. The service was rather poor. It took a very long time to get served and the waitress was not overly kind.
I would not recommend Towne in the future.
