We just happened upon this place when we were out on a Saturday afternoon after having been at an event in Boston. We had come on public transportation, so didn't have the hassle iof trying to park there. We were seated quickly as they had just opened for the day and I think we were the first ones through the...

Location and Ambience of this Resto is nice, great decor of 70's rock band. Food and service need lot of work. We order Rockefeller oyster, which was flavorful and nice, second appetizer was tuna tartar, it was horrible, no taste and way too big, no croton to go with. My 24 oz steak was full of fat. Our waitress looked... More

We strolled in here around 100 for a drink at the bar and ended up having an appetizer and a steak meal for two in our group of 6. The bartender was a class act and was great to deal with. We have all eaten at the other high steak houses and I for one can't wait to come back... More

Setting is nice, typical American steakhouse, good drinks but the service was slow and one of the steaks didn't come cooked like it was asked. They also got some of the side orders wrong. Overall a good experience but I would be rushing back.

Arriving at 10:30 NY's eve, we were seated quickly to a half empty restaurant. We booked through Open Table. We opted to select a bottle of champagne on the list of the evening's recommendations. We were told by our female waitress that this was not available. We asked for more time to look at the menu. When she returned, we... More

I have been to the location in Chicago but this was my favorite location so far. I loved the fresh seafood offerings and the decor was really cool. We went for my best friend's Birthday dinner and it was excellent. From the food to service it was outstanding. We loved our free Birthday dessert at the end. I say, we,... More

Crisp and clean restaurant. Love the bar area. We were seated near a front window and given plenty of time to browse the menu and settle in. Proseco, please! Lovely, dry sparkling. I ordered the half chilled lobster appetizer. Beautiful presentation, plenty of dipping sauces. Caesar salad was plentiful and perfectly tossed. Petite filets wrapped in bacon were delicious. The...

This is a good example of a fine steak house from the well known chain. Great location convenient to the financial district with a very well trained and professional staff. My only disappointment is rather limited seafood offerings but there are other locations in Boston if this is your thing. Consistent food quality, great drinks, top notch service. Highly recommended.

I'm a fan. It's a great place in the summer to hang at the back bar after work. They have great food. Get the crab cake and the tuna w a glass of sauv blanc. Works for me!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
