I loved Sonsie's gluten-free burger -- it was delicious! I also ate breakfast there on a different day and enjoyed their eggs, bacon and a gluten-free blackberry muffin. YUMM.

Visited for dinner. Ordered the octopus and chorizo, and calamari to start. Mains were pizzas and pastas. The wine seemed very expensive. Server was good and very attentive but the food was not memorable and over oriced. Expected a higher standard.

I went to Sonsie last weekend for brunch with a friend. It was packed and we had to wait 45 minutes for a table. We ended up window shopping on Newbury street until a table opened up. The wait was worth it though! The atmosphere was awesome! Almost felt like a European bistro with the open windows in the summer.... More

I dined at Sonsie on Saturday night. It's in a great location in Back Bay and has a vibrant, see-and-be-seen nighttime scene. Biggest downside is a thoroughly unimaginative menu and a big fail on our dinner. My son ordered his meat medium, and they brought it out extremely rare, which is especially gross with a hamburger. Our server was fantastic... More

We went there late on a Friday night, had just landed after a long flight. We needed something to fill our stomach and this was conveniently located near our hotel. We just had 3 appetizers which we shared and they were more than enough, we could not finish it ... the place is very busy, and loud ... I would... More

Met several friends here for dinner & drinks. Food tasted great & the cuisine variety appealed to everyone. Sometimes a little slow on the drink service but loved the asian flare, salads, & salmon. Veggies were fantastic too. Would definitely eat here again.

I have been at Sonsie couple of time for dinner and brunch, it is a good place for dinner from pizza to fancier meals. I really love the location with open big size windows at the street.

We went to Sonsie for Sunday brunch. With 3 couples at our table they didn't skip a beat. Our waiter was amazing, totally on beat with us. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes a good bloody, Bellini, mimosa or raw bar in the morning. The best of everything here at Sonsie, can't wait to go back!

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
