Rolled into Boston late afternoon and needed a place for dinner. Internet search for restaurants within walking distance of our hotel sent us to the Black Sheep Restaurant (based on menu). We booked a reservation (we thought), and arrived on time (reservation was for a same named restaurant in Florida), and after confessing the mix up, we were seated shortly after our arrival. The wait staff was friendly and helpful, and our dinner was great. I had their veggie burger with roasted veggies, and my husband had the crab cakes. The restaurant is located within a hotel main lobby, and looking at the hotel itself, we are thinking of booking our next trip at the Kendall Hotel.

The kobe burger was OK, though it was bordering on room temperature when it got to the table, which fits with the theme of VERY slow service that plagued the entire meal. The alcoholic-beverages menu doesn't describe any of the cocktails; you have to know exactly what you want, e.g., a Manhattan. Waiter took nearly a half-hour to get drink orders. He had to be flagged down repeatedly by members of our party, as he was anything but attentive, even though this is a very small restaurant. Several people who ordered molten chocolate cake with berries for dessert were served the berries without the cake, which they had to request. Restaurant was quite loud when full, despite smallness and absence of music (the latter a good thing, given the poor acoustics of the room).

This turned out to be a very good choice for a small business dinner. Very good food. Service could have been better. Very cozy atmosphere.

Two of us visited for a snack here. It is very small and cozy. The food was delicious (we split a quesadilla). If you're budget conscious, you might choose elsewhere.

Not only you will see the best steak in the world (I have been in 78 countries ) but also you will find the nicest waiter(s) in the world : Santos and Odair and Vivienne. They remember you by first names, they give you solutions and more importantly for me they make my guest felt treated like a royal.
