Neat atmosphere in Boston's Old City Hall. Great service, great cocktails and wine list. Steaks perfectly prepared, serving sizzling on your plate

The food is good, we ate steak and shrimp. Staff hurried, the noise is deafening. Very uncomfortable, could hardly understand the people I was with or the waiters. Prices too high for good, but predictable dishes.

The service was great, the food was wonderful and the staff were terrific. My dessert plate had "Happy Birthday" iced around the edge, which was nice. The only downside was that the tables were so incredibly close to each other; I had to ask the...More

My wife's birthday was ruined by the volume level from the party at the adjacent table. There were around 11 of them versus 2 of us. Despite the obvious discomfort of all other guests in the room the situation was not addressed despite clearly making...More

Building where stakehouse is, was magnificent. Whole experience was in general just ok. We were business group of 12. Something was missing in the taste of meat. After going through several steakhouses in the neighborhood in my opinion it is not worth the money. I...More

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
