The server has attitude, quite rude in serving us, impatient and there was a quarrel in the kitchen. The food is so-so, ambiance is good, but wouldnt really recommend if you want a good experience due to the service.
Last minute dinner plans. Very nice location, Had to go down a few stairs to get into the seller. I had the special Chilean Seabass, very well-prepared, melts in your mouth. Ambiance was very romantic with nice Italian music playing. However, interior looks a little tired and can use a bit of the renovation. ServiceWas excellent. Wine list needs an update as the restaurant did not have a half bottle of wine I initially requested. Overall, enjoyed the experience. Will come back.
As always, an amazing experience start to finish. The cozy atmosphere paired with impeccably prepared dishes creates an unbelievable restaurant. I hate to tell people about this somewhat secret spot because I want to keep it for myself!
We first went here in the early 1980s and have been returning on special occasions from time to time ever since. It retains its unique romantic ambiance (which is not easy to find these days) and never disappoints. We'll certainly continue to return.
I wish the food and service would be perfect given the price is so high. But it is so disappointing that the quality of food is not what we expected, and the service is bad. The waiter do not bring us water, and he forgets to give us new fork and spoon when he takes them away.
Anyway, the environment is great, but overall this place is overpriced too much.
A charming and romantic restaurant. The owners attention makes the evening!
I have always loved the atmosphere at Hungry I, it is cozy, friendly, high quality, friendly and personal - as well as "Old Boston" in ambience. It has not changed in these qualities over the years. The current proprietor is warm and friendly and enhances the atmosphere.
Wonderful food and ambiance. The chef, Peter, was so engaging and cooked us a fabulous meal.
The food was so rich in taste and worth the longer than average wait for the dishes to arrive and the dumplings were so delicious. Enough where I did not have too many of them and I could be satisfied with the taste and not over eat and not leave any room for the main course.
On a Wednesday night at 6:30, we were the only reservation. We left at 8:30 - no one had entered or exited since then. The service was slow (we were the only people there), the food was bland and nothing special, and the meal was super overpriced. Bleh!
I hate leaving bad reviews, really I do. We’re human and i believe people try and do their best.
HAVING SAID THAT, we had no appetizers, one entree each and shared a dessert. Along with a 1/2 bottle of wine ($28).
The bill was $130. ‘Nuff said.
Also, they never - NOT ONCE - brought us WATER.
The ONLY THING I ENJOYED was the bread which was warm and fresh.
I wish I had better things to say, but for the price, the quality, and the experience ... NOW I UNDERSTAND WHY WE WERE THE ONLY PEOPLE IN YHE RESTAURANT FOR TWO HOURS ON A WEDNESDAY EVENING.
Fantastic service and great ambiance. Food is superb. Always almost empty when I’ve visited, as this is a hidden gem in Boston.
We expected the food to be superior given the price which was prefix for three courses. Unfortunately it was not in line with the price.
We have visited this restaurant many times over the year, and it has never disappointed.
Ambiance is fabulous, such a pretty setting. Try to sit near the fireplace! Staff are so gracious, service is excellent.
Very good experience. It was our anniversary dinner and we had a fabulous time at this place.
