Great food and drinks. We love pairings for breakfast. My wife and I make a trip here every time we travel to Boston. It can be a bit pricey. We spent $80.00 on a breakfast for two.

$70 for 2 for breakfast - standard food, nothing special, way over priced. Not sure I'd go back. We only ate there b/c we had a hotel food & beverage credit.

We had read some relatively negative reviews of Pairings......untrue! I would definitely go back. The service by our waiter Alberto was superb, attentive, but not intrusive. The atmosphere is lovely and the food even better. We went with a Travel Zoo coupon.....what a deal! My husband's caeser salad was really good and very large....a meal in itself. My mussels were...

We went to Pairings as a belated Valentines Day dinner date. Being the last minute planners that we are, we failed to make reservations in advance for a restaurant in Boston. We were skeptical that Pairings was going to be any good, as it was one of the only restaurants nearby the had any open reservations. When we arrived, we... More

This is attached to the Park Plaza Hotel, so you're going to get hotel prices. But, if your breakfast was comp'd like ours was, you wouldn't care about prices!

The service at the bar was very good, and the bartender was friendly, polite, but not overly invasive seeing my desire for some alone time. Wine was excellent, can't say too much about food as I only had a salad and it was fine. With tip, paid $38 for one glass of wine and a simple salad. Seemed excessive to... More

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.
