The restaurant was closed. No one called to tell me. My client and i showed up and had to scramble to find somewhere else to eat. I can't believe the restaurant and open table let me book a reservation in the first place, and then did not inform me of this issue. TERRIBLE.
Umbria Prime has apparently closed, so I was disappointed I could not cancel my reservation. And when I tried to contact them their number is disconnected. May be a good item to note on Open Table.
When we arrived in Boston we were told by the folks at the Hilton that Umbria Prime was closed and so we did not go to that restaurant for dinner...when we tried to cancel our reservations we were unable to do so. If this is not the case....someone should look further into this...
Upon arrival the doors were locked and no lights on. The restaurant was closed but no sign on the door. Not sure if they are closed permanently? When I called only got an answering machine.
I had a 1:00 pm lunch reservation. The restaurant was closed. There was no sign, no indication of why they were closed, no information available. I'm not sure they are still open.
Excellent service. The food was great.
Seemed a bit disorganized while we were there. Food is of good quality, but the wine list is too small for a restaurant charging these prices. Most of the short wine list was not available, our party of five had to pick a few before we found one they had...and then they only had one bottle. The seemed to only have one bottle of the next two selections.
My continuing pet peeve with video screens in restaurants was again in play. This restaurant uses cable TV music stations as a soundtrack, and had the current selection described on two large video screens in the bar..so while the restaurant is dark and intimate, you have a flashing display in two corners. unnecessary in this day of streaming audio sources.
Good food, weird svc and ambiance. probably won't be back.
Ambiance was nice -- service slow for drinks too many times.
Waitress was busy talking to other waitstaff. Food very expensive for quality as we all got fish or steak. In talking to the young lady (hostess) at the door, Umbria appears to cater to the after 10 pm bar scene so food is not a priority. Will not go back.
Just ok. Maybe it was a slow night, but everyone seemed a little bored.
Great steaks, nice, little place with lively athmosphere
Great place. It's definitely my go to lunch spot.
Have visited Umbria the last few times we have traveled to Boston. Always great food, great atmosphere and great service. Definetly recommend. Filet is very tender, nice flavor.
Very cute place to bring a romantic date. Nice and quite, food was good and the drinks were good.
Although Umbria Prime is seems a little ritzy on the inside and the clientele looks the same, the food doesn't seem to fit and leaves very little to desire. We went for restaurant week and none of our plates were exactly what we'd imagined after having read the menu. For example, we ordered two mussel plates and a caesar salad. The salad was just lettuce in dressing on a plate because the croutons were forgotten. The mussels came in a fra diavlo sauce as opposed to the white wine sauce stated on the menu. The steak was overcooked and the desserts, two carrot cakes came out with different frosting... one with actual cream cheese frosting and one with a squiggle of whipped cream on it. It was a little bizarre.
The food was not great at all. The steak was extra dry and had no flavor. The chair I sat in had paint stains all over it. I was surprised they would allow a guest to sit in something like that. I will not be going back
I dined at Umbria a couple of times and it never let me down. They have a pretty good wine list; food quality was usually very good but my steak was a little dry/overcooked this time. This was the only time I didn't finish my entree. Service was very good so I'm sure will come again.
it was a good experience
Went to Umbria Prime on restaurant week- made an early reservation and it did not disappoint. Great service and very good food. Will definitely go again.
One of my favorite restaurants in Boston that never disappoints. Food is always amazing.
Came here with a friend for Restaurant Week. Chose this restaurant for vegetarian options. Service was a little slow for a lunch break.
