The service at Eastern Standard is great.
The food menu is not extensive but everything on the menu is of good quality. The drinks menu is a really extensive.
It has a nice ambience with high ceilings and Jazz music.

And not too many places have them. These were in a salad that was very good. The restaurant is a short walk from Fenway Park and makes a nice place to eat after a game.

Very nice ambiance, but also a very popular and loud place. Expect to wait, even with reservations. The food wasn't bad, but wasn't great either considering the price. I'd actually give it 3.5/5 stars, but I can't do that here, so I rounded up to 4.

What a great place. My wife and I went for a light meal and a few drinks. The drinks were incredible and the oysters were the best that I have had. I found myself eying other people's plates. There is a lot to try here. We will be back. I guarantee.

I have been to Eastern Standard several times over the past few years, and decided to go again last night for snacks and drinks with some friends. Everyone who works here is attentive and caring. The hostesses were very nice and helpful us get seated quickly. Throughout the evening our water glasses were filled regularly, and dishes were cleared away very quickly. The server was gracious and polite, prompt, and not over-bearing. Several times through the evening another staff member, presumably a manager, made sure we had everything we needed. The night was perfect. The atmosphere of Eastern Standard is very relaxing, yet energetic at the same time. The music and lighting are perfect, as is the decor. The list of cocktails is updated periodically, and always has an interesting and appealing variety. The cocktails are excellent. I will definitely be back many times.
