Teresa's never fails to impress. From the cocktails and service at the bar, to the food preparation and service in the Dining Room. We highly recommend.

This was the 2nd time going to Teresa's Prime for our anniversary. It was again a very enjoyable experience.
My only comment is that my meal was supposed to be surf & turf with petite filet mignon & baked stuffed shrimp. I received a petite sirloin instead. My husband swapped his filet with me because we just wanted to enjoy our dinner.
But I thought it should be noted so the servers should be more aware.

Went for Mother’s Day lunch. I had the salmon, my husband a steak and my son the lobster risotto. All three meals were excellent, as were the side dishes. Espresso martinis were also on point. Service was prompt without feeling rushed and the food was piping hot. Same caliber meal for less than most comparable restaurants.

When they first opened I was a little disappointed but now they are outstanding. The food and service are what you would expect in a Boston Steakhouse without the parking nightmare!
I loved my perfectly cooked bone-in filet. The steaks all come with two free sides!! Desert is over the top. The Manager Paul Krisco goes out of his way to make sure everything is perfect!

We had a really great experience, service was very good and atmosphere was very comfortable and inviting. Only room for improvement was we had to send steaks back to the kitchen being undercooked ( ordered med rare, came out black and blue).steak aficionados know what black and blue is. We also mentioned we were celebrating a birthday, usually you’ll see a complimentary dessert for the birthday person but was not presented, check was just over $400 for 4 people.

Service was good but server was not knowledgeable on wines. Steak not cooked as requested and sent it back. The second time it still wasn't as requested but better, however, the server commented it still isn't rare, but didn't offer to take it back. I didn't bother to send it back again as my husband was half way finished with his meal. My stuffed shrimp with crab was overcooked and somewhat dry. The kitchen was behind and it was noticeable. The server also made comment that they were running behind. My husband had the rack of lamb and it was cooked perfectly. Will go back as it might have been and off night. No compensation made for the poorly cooked food and the lateness of our meal.

I love the food at this restaurant. We had 2 servers and they were attentive but not intrusive. It's pricey but worth it for the food and service. My main complaint is the "tinny" sound system and the music choice. The music is what I would expect at a 99 Restaurant, it just doesn't fit the elegance of the restaurant. The TVs in the bar area should be blocked from the dining room, it cheapens the feel of the room.

I had selected Teresa’s for this special occasion, as previous visits were outstanding. I selected the special occasion button when making the reservation, indicating that the occasion was a Birthday. Our server, Nik, never made any acknowledgement of the occasion. Perhaps i was spoiled during previous visits, but I didn’t think the service would diminish.

5 star price and not a 5 star experience. Food was just ok. Service was below average and with the size of the bill you would expect a better overall experience. I’d never go back

The food here is fantastic. Also a great value compared to Boston prices, for even a lesser quality meal. The steaks were flavorful and tender and the accompaning sides more than plentiful. My only caveat to pass along is dine here as long as you don’t mind a busy and VERY boisterous dining room. Service was attentive and personable, though at times a little slow. Overall one of the better restaurants outside of the city.

We were celebrating a special occasion and our request for a particular table was honored. Service was friendly and spot on. Food was probably the best we’ve ever had there. Bacon appetizer, shrimp scampi crostini, and crab cakes were all excellent. Filet mignon on the bone was maybe a touch overdone but delicious. Lobster risotto and shrimp scampi were delicious. Swordfish special with risotto and lobster was good but I’ll probably go with the filet next time. Great evening out.

As always, Teresa’s Prime is the perfect food and atmosphere for any occasion. We happened to go for our Valentine’s dinner, but you don’t need a special occasion to enjoy all it has to offer. Can’t wait to go back.

Second time here. Food was excellent especially the bacon appetizer and the Veal Chop special. The Onion Ring side was unremarkable at best. What I don't like is the wine list selection - all high end (Average $75-90 per bottle, many over $100) with an extremely limited selection by the glass.

I will come back on special occasions and just avoid ordering wine.

Have been there in the past and would have rated everything high back then. Our recent visit was very disappointing. The food was nowhere close to being as good as it was in the past and definitely not worth the price we paid. Very disappointed and will most likely not return.
