Nice place! Staff was very attentive. No complaints. Would definitely go again.
Warm and pleasant- cane in from the rain. Had heard wonderful things and restaurant delivered.
very pleasant place. As described in other reviews, tucked into a crowded student neighborhood but quiet and pleasant. Although called a "gastro-pub," it was much more a casual restaurant as the bar was quiet and filled with people eating meals. Food was excellent and diverse...We had small plates. Octopus very tasty, as were beets, gnocchi/pheasant. Beef "cigars" were especially good. Burger just OK. Had an excellent Tempranillo recommended by owner, which he advised me to purchase even those substantially lower in price than another I was considering. Wait staff were attentive, but surprisingly uninformed about dishes and wines. It was quiet, which was very nice. No curtain around door, so it would have been drafty if there was more coming and going.
I had been to the stops few times and I have been a big fan and my wife loves this place too but when we were there this Valentine's day the service and certain dishes were not upto glenville stops standard. But will still try again! :-)
The food was good, nothing fancy but well made. Great beer and nice ambiance.
This was an amazing place! The food, people, and atmosphere was on point. I couldn’t of asked for a better way to spend Valentine’s Day with my girlfriend.
First time here: main detriment = congested area to park in (which at least makes it an ideal local neighborhood restaurant). We had an early reservation which aided the low-key ambience. Excellent service [Warren] and all fine portions of delicious food = raw oysters / carrot soup w/ cauliflower / charred octopus / lamb meatballs / pan-seared salmon. Excellent all around!!
Wait staff was great, food was too.
As always, loved it.
Glenville Stops is a gem nestled away off the beaten path in a neighborhood of Allston. The food is delicious with an eclectic variety of cuisines and styles ranging from tapas, burgers, fresh seafood, vegetarian options, and even curry. The service is accommodating and prompt. The drink menu offers an expansive selection of beer and wine, but no liquor or cocktails. Since it's hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Allston center, you won't have to fight the crowds to get a table. However, finding a parking space may be tough since there isn't a parking lot, and the spots nearby are resident only. Overall, I would highly recommend this restaurant.
