  • Faneuil Hall / Quincy Market

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    My wife and I were shopping in the Farmer's Market and the Faneuil Market when we decide to grab a bite to eat. I didn't feel like eating at one of the food hall stands so we decided to try this place out. I liked that the restaurant was upstairs and not on the main level where the crowds tend to mull. We were seated at a nice table for two...

  • Mike's Pastry

    4 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    Landed here after being highly recommended and I was not disappointed. They have a fabulous, eye catching display of desserts, comprising cup cakes, pastries, canoli, and lobster tails, to name a few. You might end up in a daze, but it helps to remind yourself why you are here, so get what you had in mind initially. You won't be disappointed!

  • Union Oyster House

    4 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    We went here with a group, while attending a Viet Nam Reunion, so our dinner was in a back room and a set menu with choice of several entrees. All of it was good, the public part of the restaurant was full and looked to be a great place! see the history of this restaurant at: http://www.unionoysterhouse.com/Pages/history.html

  • Legal Sea Foods

    4 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    I visited Legal Seafood for the first time twice! The decor is retro and fairly plain at the two we visited in the Prudential Mall and Copley Place. Absolutely first rate seafood and entirely "legal."

  • Bull & Finch Pub (Cheers)

    3 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    The Bull and Finch is always a fun place for a lunch or afternoon get together. Made famous by the Cheers TV show, it serves typically bar fare. The burgers are good and I actually got extra crispy fries, something most restaurants just don't seem to be able to accomplish.

  • Cafe Vittoria

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    Cafe Vittoria is the first Italian cafe in the city. It has a distinct old world feel and charm to it, and it is a great place to hang out and have animated conversations with friends. It is a delightfully intimate cafe where you can have your caffeine fix for the day (either during the day or night). It is particularly nice to come here in the...

  • La Famiglia Spagnuolo

    3 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    I just finished my review entitled "Extremely Overpriced" and yet I forgot one more comment! When we asked for a "to go" container for our left over pizza, the waitress said, "we have been really busy, we don't have anymore TO GO containers." I then asked for some aluminum foil instead and she said that they didn't have any of that either! I then...

    My name is Jorge Rodriguez and I'm from Puerto Rico which is considered to be american territory. My Driver license is my only official ID and with the same I can live, travel and work throughout the 50 states as an "american citizen". Today I went to The Barking Crab for a business meeting and some drinks, and the Manager told me that my Puerto...

    Boston Restaurants

    Located on the Long Wharf, The Boston Chart House is located in the Gardiner Building which dates back to the 1760s. The building once housed the offices of American patriot John Hancock, and is the oldest building still in use on historic Long Wharf. During dinner, servers will offer up a brief historical background of the building and the...

  • Pizzeria Regina

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    There are many locations, but for some reason the original location in The North End is much better than the franchise locations. Maybe it's the brick oven, maybe it's the water they use. Everyone has their own opinions, but most locals agree that this is the location to go. Since the 1920's, this location has been serving pizza and nothing else....

  • Pho Pasteur

    4 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    If you're looking for some great pho -- noodle soup -- and are near Boston Commons, this is THE place to go. Jackie (scuba_girl) suggested this as a lunch stop for our VT walk along the Freedom Trail (with rowangbr and dracko). Great choice!! ***UPDATE*** scuba_girl reports that the Pho Pasteur location we went to has since shut down. There are,...

  • The Cheesecake Factory

    4 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    Having headed out to the Prudential Centre, we came across this place and quickly decided that we had earned our right to this indulgence with all the miles that we had walked over the past few days. The problem was going to be which slice to choose from the huge range of cheesecakes on offer. Eventually I plumped for the Key Lime Cheesecake...

  • Au Bon Pain

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    Although Au Bon Pain is not comparable to a McDonalds, it is still your typical fast food; however, the food selections here are healthier than the ones found in the average fast food chain, and there are more food selections available. This place is overrated! Don't be fooled by its French-sounding name that makes an unknowing individual wonder...

  • Cheers at Faneuil Hall Marketplace

    2.5 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    Obviously the national fame of this name, at least for those of my age, causes you to go by and take it in. The one at Faneuil Hall area in right in Quincy Market and has outdoor seating. The other is in Beacon Hill Burgers are good. Food overall looked good and price in middle to higher end

  • Hard Rock Cafe

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    I think the title of my tip says it all. Hard Rock Cafe is cool the first few of them you go to, but lets face it, after a while its a little repetative. This is a great place to go to if you have children. The wait staff are very attentive to the little ones. It can be very loud and hard to hear people at your table.

    Boston Restaurants

    Veronica wanted to have brunch here on Sunday, so after spending about an hour walking Newbury we popped in to enjoy brunch, a beautiful day, and people watch. Sonsie is known for their great location, great open air dinning and now their Wine Bar. I don't recall anything special. We enjoyed the beautiful day and out door dinning allowed us to do...

  • Penang

    4 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    The best Malaysian I've had was on a sidewalk foodstand, but that was in Singapore. In Boston, Penang is probably the best Malaysian place. It may also be the only in town. There used to be another restaurant called Banana Leaf but it went out of business years ago. There are two Penang in the chain. The original, also better, and cheaper, is on...

  • Finale

    Boston Restaurants

    Finale is the place to come for decadent desserts or at least that's what we were told. There are several locations of Finale with a large variety of delicious treats. They also serve food items as well as coffee. After a filling seafood dinner and a nice walk;we decided to grab some dessert to bring back to the hotel. Upon entering Finale there...

  • Trattoria Il Panino

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    This is a real cute, hole in the wall, laid back yet gourmet restaurant we ate lunch in on a Friday afternoon. The staff are all Italian and are friendly and helpful. Friends of mine had the crab and lobster ravioli, while I had their gnocchi. To drink, I had Birra Moretti, but friends of ours found out the hard way that they only serve alcoholic...

  • La Famiglia Giorgio's

    4 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    This Italian restaurant is mostly popular because it offers huge portions of very good Italian food at a vey reasonable price. Inside, the restaurant is slightly outdated and has more of a family atmosphere than a romantic one. Our waitress was efficient and friendly, and portions were HUGE!! In fact, for an extra $7.50, it's possible to share a...

  • Boston Beer Works

    4 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    While waiting for my plane, I decided to give this place a try for lunch. It was packed at lunchtime, so I ended up sitting at the bar rather than getting table service. The bartender was quite friendly, explaining to everyone what sorts of beer they served. She had a fairly full group to take care of, but never seemed to fall behind and made sure...

  • Daily Catch

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    The Daily Catch is a very small place, a dive really. The restaurant only seats about 18 people and is staffed by three people: a cook, a hostess/waitress and a bus boy... The hostess/waitress is an older woman who is always entertaining by simply acting normal (she is one of the reasons this is my favorite Boston restaurant). As is par for the...

  • Black Rose

    4 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    Some say the Black Rose, perhaps the most famous Irish pub in Boston, isn't quite what it used to be in its heyday (they even whisper of its takeover by a conglomerate run by - gasp - an Englishman!). But it still features excellent food, fine music, and, of course, Guinness. With the slick new entrance to the Aquarium Blue Line station just a...

  • J. P. Licks

    4 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    J.P. Licks is known in Boston as one of the best places to have a great treat. The ice cream was quite good, but for me it wasn't out of this world great. If you find yourself strolling on a hot summer day on Newbury Street and fancy a nice cool treat, stop by and grab an ice cream, sorbet, shake or yogurt to quench that summer heat. For those of...

  • Dali Restaurant and Tapas Bar

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    This place oozes Spain and everything that you may think a Spanish restaurant looks like in Spain. Dali is decorated with a bohemian/gypsy decor, the walls are packed with all sorts of things, including vines and flowers hanging from the ceiling. The bar is a beautiful piece of art with a tile theme. We arrived sometime around 8 pm on a Saturday...

    This was another place that we had previously walked past and we decided to return when after a long day of exploring the city, we wanted somewhere close to our hotel. We were totally amazed with the array of beers on offer and the collection of beer pulls that decorated the premises were really interesting as we looked for the names of beers that...

    Boston Restaurants

    After doing so much shopping on Newbury, we decided we needed some great food and a nice atmosphere with drinks of course. Roni had been to Stephanie's before and suggested we take our lunch here. I really wanted tapas with some yummy sangria, but I had to settle for Stephanie's . Stephanie's is a beautiful place to have more than just lunch....

  • Spinnaker Italia

    Boston Restaurants

    The entrees here are only so-so, the dessert above average, the cocktails acceptable, the music.. well, let's not go into that. What's good about this place is the view, and it's 360-degree thanks to the revolving floor. The tiramisu

  • Modern Pastry

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    Mike’s Pastry is the most famous of the North End pastry shops, but I’ve always preferred Modern Pastry, located right across the street. A slightly smaller selection than Mike’s, but also a smaller crowd, and I know many who consider Modern to have the best cannolis in the North End. My personal favorite is the carrot cake - the frosting is...

    4 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    My friends took me to this restaurant as it is pretty popular among Bostonians. I understand it belongs to the owner of a family of similar restaurants, but this was my friends' favorite. It is located on Moody Street (please see my Night life tips), quite far from Boston's downtown. The environment is very nice: they have dim lights, live music...

  • Artu's

    4 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    Artu's is a cool little place below ground level on Charles Street in Beacon Hill. Prices are actually pretty reasonable considering the location, and the food is outstanding. Unlike a lot of places like this, the portions at Artu's are plentiful, so you won't leave hungry. I highly recommend it.

    Boston Restaurants

    Bova's is a famous North End bakery whose bread makes it's way to stores all over the greater Boston area. Also of particular goodness are the calzones, available in many varieties and are a great late night snack, since Bova's is open 24 hours a day!!! Pastries of all sorts are also very good here.

  • John Harvard's Brew House

    4 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    John Harvard's is tucked in the basement of a building at 33 Dunster St. It's dark, but cozy and always crowded. Of course they make their own beer and the beer menu changes just about daily. The food is pretty good too, but stick with the comfort food like the chicken pot pie and the meatloaf. Most of the steak dishes are pretty good too. The...

    The group decided to move out for our last night in search of a good beer, and that led us to the Cambridge Brewing Company, near the MIT campus. Our group of six was seated quickly, and the waiter quickly got our first round of drinks. The beer was excellent. They have four beers on the menu that are year round beers, then about another half dozen...

All in all, Peet's is a great...
