They said they discontinued open table 5 months ago and didn't have our reservation. Had to take our meeting at the bar. Service was subsequently brutal

About average hotel foods. I did enjoy the smoky sliders to start with and flatbreads. Next time maybe appetizers only

This restaurant sits at the lobby level of the Boston Sheraton. It is not enclosed by walls or glass, so except for the fact that you climb a few steps you might as well be having lunch or dinner in the reception of the hotel. It is not cozy at all, and the lack of tablecloths increases the feeling of fast-food restaurant. The menu was uninspired. The clam chowder soup was very thick and made me thing about the extra calories I did not need to take. The main dish selection was limited, with plenty of fried stuff and "all-American" fattening dishes. The only saving grace was the Asian waiter, who was efficient, fast, and friendly.

We selected this restaurant for our Christmas Eve dinner due mainly to the wide variety of very interesting and flavorful sounding dishes that were included in their menu, as posted on Open Table and on their website. However, when we arrived, we were presented with a menu that was quite different from what they had led us to expect. In fact, the menu was basically sandwiches and burgers, with a very limited and uninspired selection of choices. Our server mentioned that the kitchen was undergoing renovations, and that they were using another kitchen that was further away, but he said nothing about any resulting changes to their menu. It is possible that the limited menu resulted from this temporary change of kitchens. Nevertheless, we felt very mislead.

My daughter had the salmon, which seemed to be OK. I ordered a bacon burger, medium RARE, and received an overcooked, almost tasteless, well-done burger. My wife could find nothing of interest among the main courses, and instead chose a simple side salad.

While I would not say the restaurant was terrible, it was certainly unremarkable, and not at all what we had expected. The only reason I would ever eat there again is if I were staying at the hotel, and there was a blizzard outside!

The Side Bar Grille provided a convenient location close to the Hynes convention center to meet colleagues for lunch. The menu offered a variety of good selections and the food was quite tasty. However, the service was slow both in delivering the food and in bringing/processing the check/payment. If time is not a factor, this is a good place to enjoy your lunch.

I booked a table online but when I went there the day before to add another person to our reservation, they had no records of our booking. The food was good, but the noise level is quiet high.

Stopped into the Side Bar as a convenient place to have a bite before the Symphony. It served the purpose well, the location was extremely convenient, we were served quickly, and the meal was quite good.

Hi,
We stayed at the Sheraton for 2 nights prior to the Boston Marathon. We were very happy about its location within the hotel. The experience was very positive. Good food, great service, even had a pre-marathon pasta buffet which was perfect before the race day. The breakfast was alsogreat, having many choices to offer (and healthy too).

If ever I return to Boston next year for my 5th Marathon experience, I will definitely consider eating at the Side Bar Grille again!

Sincerely,

Canadian Marathon runner!

I really liked the ambience in the room. It was great because my date and I had our own privacy. The service was a little slow. The server should have walked around a bit more, but he was really nice

Five members of my family were gathering for our Thanksgiving get together with our college student boys. The restaurant was not very crowded on this day before Thanksgiving and we were a bit apprehensive. However, our waiter was extremely gracious and accommodating to our requests and even allowed us to alter the menu to suit our tastes. The service was prompt and our waiter was exceptional.

Best Lobster Roll I ever had. Perfect for pre or post Symphony or Pops concerts. First time, didn't know you were there.

Fair and reasonable to choose, whenever around. I felt a bit uncomfortable that the way of putting glass on a table was too rude and that wine was poured frequently, whenever glass had begun empty, though we did not ask.

11/27/12 The Side Bar Grille was an excellent experience in all ways. We took our family plus two guests, nine people, there at the last minute. We had booked at a restaurant in Cambridge but acquired two more people for the holiday than we had booked and the Cambridge Restaurant could not be flexible. The entire staff here, from phone calls to service, could not do enough for us. The Sharaton Boston seems to be beautifully renovated with the well-designed, soothing décor of the restaurant blending with the lobby and its décor.
We would definitely recommend the restaurant and, by the service and décor of the restaurant and lobby, would bet that staying at the hotel woould be an excellent choice. (Just check into prices.) N. Erdmann

If you are in the Sheraton and if you must eat there, sure go ahead. Not at all bad, just uninteresting and uninspired
