Love this place! They certainly do things right. The staff is great. We were treated so well, we felt like family. The atmosphere is wonderful, great music, comfortable seating, and an open feeling that relaxes you as you dine. Breakfast here is a must, especially if you are looking for a great start to a busy Boston day. Thank you Eastern Standard for making my latest Boston trip memorable!
service SUCKED! didn't have a rez on Xmas Eve, and were relegated to a tiny table near the bar...waited 5 minutes until we were even greeted, then another 5 until the drinks arrived...left without eating...won't ever go back
Was looking forward to trying out Eastern Standard. Finally got there and ordered a drink with my friend and we each had a few sips. Then the bartender just came up and took our drinks from us, and when we asked why, he said he did not feel comfortable serving us. Manager was nice about it, but the bartender went about what he did the completely wrong way. A total let down for a bar that has received such high recognition.
Nice atmosphere. Lousy food & slow service. Had the special: Scallops...totally raw...not rare....raw! Sent them back & waiter mad...came back black & harder than the plate! Staff so rude, actually said, I will have these cooked as you want them ...how about normal white on edges & cool in middle.....not hard as rocks! So many good restaurants in Boston...avoid this overpriced nightmare!
Boston Magazine's Web review describes the place as 'boisterous'. It's a most handsome room of the big-and-noisy variety, befitting the overall mood of Kenmore Square these days. Seating in the main room is not generous; for maximum comfort, a couple would do well to ask for a booth.
Well-trained, unobtrusive staff. An attempt to engage our server in the standard pleasantries was met with a chill... attentive and efficient, though.
Food-wise, smallish portions -- another departure from American popular restaurant standards -- /beautifully/ prepared. The coffee was a couple of jigs below excellent. We didn't test dessert.
Expect a wait on weekends.

with ships' wheels, lobster pots and fishnets adorning the wood paneled walls, but it is reassuring that places like ...
