It was my friends birthday and she came into the city to have a fun dinner! We absolutely LOVED the food, but the service was relatively poor. We felt a bit neglected, especially for a Saturday night. Would still go back for another chance, it was delicious.

Food was very good, but portions were small for the price (Octopus appetizer has only one leg). Kitchen was tied up serving "large" party according to manager, no offer to compensate for extensive wait time while we were seated, other than to offer to let us leave before we were served our entrees...

This restaurant is amazing. The food and drinks were outstanding. We got the Finish Line and Strawberry mimosas which were delicious. We had the brunch menu and ordered the chilaquiles and the lobster benedict, both were nothing but perfection. Definitely coming back and extremely recommend it.

While the scene is vibrant it seems the kitchen cannot handle a crowded Saturday night! The waiter was very knowledgeable and good, but food took about an hour to get to us, then the NY Strip was hard and scallops cold and rubbery!! A little disappointed based on reviews, but plan to give them a second try next time in town!!

Thyme cocktail was basically lemonade with a sprig of thyme. Not well balanced, just sweet. Octopus appetizer was fishy. Duck fritters were almost entirely bread with no duck substance detectable. The scallop entree was 4 scallops on a large plate. Ordered the steak frites medium rare, but came well done. The look of the place is great, but everything else was lacking.

I think we came on an off morning but we had a terrible experience at Sunday brunch. They told us the bartender didn't show up that morning, so they could not serve alcohol. The service was very slow.

We had a good time with delicious food and great service. The crowd, in addition to the open space, does make it a little more noisy than a regular restaurant (similar to a bar’s noise level), so plz be alert if that’s what you’re looking for. The rooftop has fantastic view, and wasn’t that crowded on the weekdays so we were lucky. It’s overall a good experience.

We had the best dinner here that we have had so far in Boston. The food was outstanding. We started with a sausage and fennel
flatbread and blue fin tuna which were delicious. Our entrees included salmon, scallops, strip steak and lobster mac and cheese. I have to say we all loved our meals. Each dish was presented beautifully and full of flavor. The service was excellent. Thank you Tim for taking such good care of us. Such a great night. Will definitely be back soon.

They messed on up the same drink twice. The first time it was ordered and then the second time when we asked for another round. It was a prosecco and instead we got a mimosa. I understand once, but twice?

Disappointed with service and execution! When we arrived our waiter looked less enthusiastic to serve us. He brought water in plastic cups. I looked around and noticed tables around us had a mix of plastic cups and glasses. That looked tacky to me so I asked for glasses. Food was OK, nothing spectacular about it. After dinner, I mentioned to the manager that it was my birthday and we wanted to go to the Rooftop for drinks. He told us to go outside and get in line for that. I was surprised by the response, after spending a substantial amount of money on dinner you would assume it would be OK to go straight to the rooftop. We got in line, and was disappointed by what we saw. Apart from the views there’s nothing else to it. Very limited seating and you could barely hear the music!

Food was good but too pricy for the entire experience . Place was too loud, packed, service was poor and food took a while to be served. Overall, there are other places way much better for the same price.

My husband and I went out here for drinks and dinner after work on a Tuesday, hoping to grab a drink at the rooftop bar before dinner at the Outlook Kitchen. There was a line to get up on to the rooftop at 5:45...and was still there when we left around 7:30...we never made it up since we didn't feel like waiting in line. Outlook Kitchen had a small menu, small portions and ok drinks. We were seated outside which was kind of loud next to the Barking Crab and no view to speak of. Waitstaff and host were nice enough. The bar inside Outlook Kitchen seemed cool - had a nice vibe.

Server never looked us in the eye. There was no one there, yet somehow the hostess was too busy to greet us. The ice tea was terrible, starters and mains were delivered at the same time, I asked for the salad to be dressed, but lightly, but they brought the dressing on the side - not the same. It’s a shame, good ambience (even though it was empty at lunch time), but service was a disaster.

I got the Straight A Salad which was very good in taste, portion was a bit small. My friend got the Caesar salad which did not look like a Caesar salad at all, but it seemed fine. The drinks were weak for the amount of money they cost and honestly the little kid at the table next to me got a PB&J that looked better than my meal! It was fine for what it was but overpriced in my opinion.

The food is innovative and most of it was really nice. I was looking forward to my lamb belly, but had to return it. The ratio was 2/3 fat and 1/3 meat. The waiter double checked with the kitchen and I got told, that is how lamb belly is... Hmmm!?
Service was friendly, but not very professional. Red wine glas was spilled with red wine when served. We had to ask to clear the table after finishing.
The most annoying thing was the plastic cubs with water. When asking why there where no glasses, the answer was, that there are not enough glasses for in and outside, so they serve in plastic outside. More than half of inside seating was empty though!

Forgot my toast with my breakfast. Didn’t get it until I was almost done. Mimosas are $14. Eggs were very overdone. I heard everyone else’s food was decent though. Maybe just don’t get the eggs.
