  • Faneuil Hall - Quincy Market

    4 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    We were quite disappointed with the choices or lack thereof of places to eat (with decent food) around Faneiul Hall Quincy Market and were quite surprised when we found Ned Devine's. It is located at the end of Quincy Market's food hall with it's own separate entrance from the outside. We decided to check out the menu and see what they had to...

  • 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.

    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,...

  • La Famiglia Spagnuolo

    2.5 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    One of the worst experiences of my life. The owner, our waitress, told us it was cash only that day, AFTER we'd eaten. There were no signs on the door about this, nor were we told when we came in. She didn't tell us until after we'd eaten and she gave us the bill. Between us, we barely had enough cash. And they add in a 20+% tip, for a party of...

  • 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....

  • 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...

    The Hard Rock Cafe is a well known chain restaurant in major cities all over the world. You can generally find them in the centre of the action and you can always rely on a pretty decent meal there. The atmosphere is jumping at night and your mileage may vary in the daytime, depending on when you go and what time of year it is, and where it is, I...

  • 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...

    Robert took me to this wonderful restaurant for our second date. It was here that I had my first taste of Filet Mignon good medium rare. The meat melted in my mouth the way it should. We ordered a very delicious bottle of wine to go with the meal and finished it off with a dish of fresh raspberries on top of freshly whipped cream. The atmosphere of...

  • 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...

  • 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...

    The Green Dragon is a favorite Pub of ours when visiting Boston. My wife and I enjoy the laid back yet fun atmosphere of the place. The bar is a decent size with plenty of bar seating as well as tables throughout. They also serve food here which is actually very good especially the wings and nachos. Our most recent visit to the Green Dragon was...

  • 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...

    We decided to go over to North End for an authentic Italian meal. We didn't have any particular restaurant in mind so we walked until we found a place that suited us. It was so hot and Ferni and I really wanted a restaurant with indoor air conditioned dinning. Joann had eaten at this restaurant years before and said the food was realy good. So in...

    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...

    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.

  • The Cheesecake Factory

    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...

  • Dali Restaurant and Tapas Bar

    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...

    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...

    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...

  • The Kinsale Irish Pub & Restaurant

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    I wouldn't call this an authentic pub, but it does a good job. It's quite large, which is not my style, but it's also in a prime location for business people and tourists alike, so the extra room probably comes in handy. My sister works nearby and goes here often. When we went for lunch it was a pretty diverse crowd of people on lunch break. It...

  • Ristorante Villa Francesca

    Boston Restaurants

    Villa Francesca is one of dozens of very good Italian restaurants in Boston's North End. I have been here numerous times, most recently in summer 2004 when I enjoyed a great lobster ravioli with appetizer, Italian beer, coffee, and desert for about $50 per person. This restaurant has very good service and for a special treat you can sit at one of...

    This is a corporate chain, but a good one. They have several very good and fresh brews, and a decent menu at a good price. Outside of Quincy Market, trying to find a good patio style restaurant in Boston's downtown area is sort of tough, especially in the theater district. When I walk Whitney, I need a place with patio dining because health laws...

    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...

Tapeo serves some really yummy tapas. With a large selection of both hot and cold tapas, there is something for everyone. The average price is about $6 per...

    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...

  • Vinnie T's

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Boston Restaurants

    This restaurant is massivley popular among college kids whose parents are coming to visit. I think the main reason is because the portions are so massive that the students end up getting a week's worth of garlic-laden italian food at their parents' expense (duh, what else are parents any good for?). At the end of your meal, your waiter will shake...

  • Modern Pastry

    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...

Stephanie's is a beautiful place to have more than just lunch....

    PF Changs is the epitome of the American-Chinese Cuisine (differentiated from chinese cuisine by making veggies as garnishings instead of being the main draw as the same as meats.) and is the number one Chinese Bar cum restaurant in America. The chain was founded in Scottsdale, Arizona in 1993 by Paul Fleming and Philip Chiang. The restaurants...

    Went here for a birthday/pre-museum visit brunch. I can sum up my feelings simply by saying that I loved it. The food, the room, and the service are all outstanding. First of all, I must say that it was not an easy place to find. And searching on the waterfront on a grey, cold, and damp morning was not the best. Plus, they need not just better...

    A chain in the Northeast, similar to Olive Garden or Red Lobster, their pizzas and pastas are delicious. Ate here quite frequently during my college years. Definitely try the fresh rolls before your meal arrives.
