Description: Post 390 puts a contemporary twist on the traditional tavern experience, with seasonally inspired dishes that reflect Chef Eric Brennan’s passion for fresh ingredients and unforgettable flavors. On the first floor is the Tavern—a casual but sophisticated menu and atmosphere, with a 25-seat bar and high top and banquette seating area, warmed by a beautiful four-sided fireplace. A massive wrought iron staircase connects the energy of the first floor with the Dining Room on the second floor. Here, guests can have a more refined dining experience, and enjoy our large, open kitchen, wine displays, two private dining rooms, additional fireside dining and views of landmarks like Copley Place, Trinity Church and the Hancock Tower. Throughout the entire restaurant, black glazed brick columns and wood slatted walls add an urban edge to the comforting atmosphere. Located in the Clarendon Building, the site of the former Back Bay Post Office Annex, Post 390 is perfectly situated within

Great atmosphere in the tavern. Super friendly staff, good drink list, albeit slightly on the pricey side. The tavern menu is creative and much more reasonably priced than the dining room. I highly recommend the "pork of the day" appetizer, which for us was a deconstructed blt in the form of a salad. It came with four of the meatiest chunks of pork belly that I've ever seen and a tomato jam that was out of this world. The lamb bolognese paperdelle was perfectly seasoned. The pasta was not too al dente. One of the best items on this menu is the burger (possibly one of the top 10 burgers in Boston)....it's huge, beefy and perfectly cooked. The cheddar is melted to a gooey molten consistency so it just envelopes what must be close to 3/4 lbs of tasty, high quality beef. I ordered it will all of the fixings...mushrooms, caramelized onions, bacon and avacado....while I enjoyed the add-ons, I would recommend letting the burger stand on its own with some lettuce, tomato and onion....and the bacon.

Service was good. This restaurant caters nicely to allergies. I would definitely recommend the tavern for a nice, slightly pricey night out. Definitely a great place to meet friends.

This restaurant was just a short distance from our hotel so as it was raining we decided to give it a try. We were so pleased we ended up eating there for the 3 nights we were in Boston.
We went in on the off chance and the staff could not have been more welcoming. Of course some of the names of the dishes were strange but they were very helpful. Being English we had no problem with the wine list which was comprehensive.! The first night we ate upstairs as we did the second night which unfortunately was quite noisy as there was an office group. The third night we were in the downstairs bar area which was rather cramped and extremely busy as the upstairs was being used for a Wedding Reception. However we had been warned about this when we booked the previous night. We had to wait a little longer but the food and wine were still top quality.

The service from the hostess and others was great. Our waiter was another story. He was very rude and not friendly at all. Hopefully he was just having a bad day and this is not his usual personality.

For an appetizer we had the Spiced Tuna Poke. This was one of the worst tuna poke's I have had. I had the Organic Chicken for dinner which was just okay. My friends had the Pork dinner dish which they liked a lot.

I would suggest to others to find a different restaurant for dinner.

Stay downstairs in the bar. Good food and more reasonable prices than upstairs in their more formal dining area. That's where they first want to take you. More expensive foo foo.
