First time here. Took a dear friend (from out of town) and Scotch lover for dinner. Started with one of the tasting flights which we really enjoyed. We also shared 4 small plates for dinner, which were excellent. I look forward to returning especially with their guest chef model. I anticipate continued exciting menus as new chefs come it, and plan on joining the Scotch club!

We enjoyed most of the food and cocktails we ordered. I told the server that I am a vegetarian and asked about a specific dish being meat free, she assured me it was but, to my surprise, I bit into a piece of ham! Otherwise, the food was good. The table we sat at was quite cold, as it was near the entrance. I wouldn't recommend sitting near the hostess stand, as you don't get a to enjoy the ambiance and on a cold winter night you'd be hard pressed to take your coat off.

Disappointing- very friendly staff could not overcome the loudness and food preparation. It does seem as if they buy good quality food to start though. My steak was comp’d by the manager

Great atmosphere. Interesting and tasty Tapas (small plates)
We ordered the garlic shrimp (comes with bread), and brussel sprouts to share. Excellent choices. Also the cauliflower and broc fritters. Nice and crispy outside and soft inside but need a bit of seasoning. Quite tasteless- we thought.
Look forward to returning to sample some more!

Nicely decorated with pleasing atmosphere.
Service was poor at best. The server was pleasant but very slow and took a long time to check in with us to see if we needed anything, which we did.
Food was below average.
Drinks were extremely disappointing with 2 different drinks being sent back because they were that bad.
Overall, very disappointing experience.

Food and Food service was great

Drinks arrived after our first course
Tasted great but all ice with only 3-4sips

Waitress asked us if we were ready for dessert while we still had one more dish coming

Waitress wasn’t able to make proper change so told us to take it out if her tip but gave us all $20 bills

Bar can be very noisy

The service was spot on and the cocktails are always a win at Wink & Nod. Hush’s food concept is fantastic. Try the seared foie gras and fried chicken thigh with chive waffles.

Drinks were fabulous as always. We both had an old fashioned. The menu was from ‘Hush’. We decided to try the spicy tuna roll. Omg it was absolutely delish! We also ordered the wagyu potstickers, they were mouth watering and the short rib tacos, which were the perfect size and packed with so many flavors. The table next to us got the charcoal grilled octopus, which is one I was contemplating. It looked so good I just had to order it. And so happy we did! The octopus was cooked and flavored to perfection, but the crispy sopressata and roasted garlic just add an amazing touch! We gave it 4 stars because the drinks took a bit, although it is mostly a cocktail bar and each drink is worth the wait.

Absolutely excellent!
Jackie was our server and she was the bomb!
Chicken nuggets, spicy tuna rolls, the chicken skin chips and dip were all wonderful
Craft cocktails abound.
Beautiful, swanky ambiance with coolness in every direction
We will be back.

Wink and Nod is one of our favorite spots, particularly before or after a show. Great cocktails and food, and a fun "speakeasy" feel.

Food was very interesting, and the concept of a revolving chef is very cool. Service was abysmal, though. We had a rather light dinner and it took almost 3 hours. Also rather pricey for what it was.

We have never been and loved it. Jackie was our server and was outstanding. Food was a standout for us. We had only small plates but each one was so well done and 3 of them were showstoppers! Very nice for date night, will come again.

Aside from the fried chicken skin "Potato chips" which were really gross (seriously) and the very tiny high top (our knees were touching - way to small for four people) , it's a good place for shared plates but not for dinner. We ended up leaving and eating somewhere else. Service was good though. Very nice people.

What a swanky little bar we stumbled upon!! I found this place on a review site for best places to drink in Boston and boy is it!!!! The ambiance is playfully dark and sophisticated but the drinks and bartenders liven it up. The menu is amazing. Our waitress said it changes every six months. We got the sliders and pork tacos. Great choices. And our drinks were outstanding. A bit pricey but worth it for a nice night out.

Honestly, I didn't remember how LOUD this place was, so that was actually a negative. The service was fine, but not outstanding. They seemed a little overwhelmed. We only got one drink because despite our first drinks having been consumed before our meal arrived, our waitress never gave us another opportunity to order another. We were sitting at a high top, and my stool was broken, (no foot rest), so that was uncomfortable. The food was good, as were the cocktails.
