Welcome to the Hungry I! Tucked just below street level on Beacon Hill's picturesque brownstone-lined Charles Street, the Hungry I is charming and intimate. Although small, it is quite cozy and very romantic. There's a true elegance to the Hungry I that comes from the surroundings, the food and the staff. A distinctively different place that makes every visit really special.

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 had such a great time at this cozy and romantic
Neighborhood staple. I had the mussels for an entree and the salmon with veggies for dinner. The walnut pie for dessert. The fireplace combined with the adorable decor made for a perfect romantic night. All the food was excellent. The pumpkin bread was excellent. The salmon was moist and the suave divine. Dessert as others on reviews said was delicious. Go if you want a special romantic spot away from large crowds. It’s a special lil spot!

Dropped in for a meal after shopping all day. The fireplace was going, which added to the already beautiful ambience. The server was attentive but not overly so. Selections were many and the specials were interesting. We ordered from the menu for our appetizers. I had a delicious pate and my husband had a wonderful clam dish. We decided to go with the duck breast entree which was one of that night's specials. Great pick on our part. Just fantastic. It was a wonderful evening. We look forward to our next visit.

Food was OK but not as great as advertised. The server was nice but nothing above normal. The decor was weird and old. Not my style perhaps.

Fantastic meal and service, as always. Wonderful ambiance. A perfect fall evening! One of the best restaurants in Boston and one of our all-time favorites. Whether visiting for a light bite, a drink, or a meal, you won’t be disappointed.
