Great spot to go with friends. We sat in the lounge before a show at the wang theater. Food was fantastic! Blueberry lemonade drink was even better. Highly recommend 😀

Unsure about the negative reviews, we had low expectations but were also prepared for a busy restaurant with tables tightly spaced. So no surprises about the small table in a very energetic room. Our waiter was charming and considerate of our timing and made sure...More

This place was next door to our hotel and I was really looking forward to loving it due to namesake. I was certain I would it when I saw the large Marilyn Monroe on the second floor. Sadly, the service was lame (not attentive, slow,...More

Good food here, no complaints on that point, but the other things were bothersome. Eleven tables set for two, with other open tables elsewhere, but being a solo I had to sit at the bar, with three large TVs in front of me, two showing...More

Enjoyed apps and drinks on a Friday afternoon with friends while on our way to sightseeing around Boston Commons. Try the clam chowder. It's not the "traditional" kind like Chunky Soup, it's way better with large chunks of clams. Delicious.

We made a reservation over a week in advance. We arrived 5 minutes before our reservation. It apparently doesn't matter. The hostess will seat you at the worst possible tables if you don't speak up. My husband was bumped in the back several times by...More

Arrived early for dinner before a show. People who had reservations an hour ahead of us hadn't been seated. They were also seating 'walk ins' ahead of reserved guests. The 'hostesses' were rude. Won't bother going back.

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

"My family ate here before going to a comedy show at the Wilbur Theater. The food was great and our server, Gia, was excellent! The menu is really varied and the bar was very busy on a Friday night. There is also a discount if you are going to a show in the Theater District. This was our first time eating here but we would return! Visited October 2016" -----Hello, this was one of the really good reviews I keep seeing but, I didn't know about a discount if going to a show.
