Success! Was lucky to visit on. Friday and indulge on the daily special offered. Lively atmosphere; convenient location and great access to neighboring partner restaurant for après dinner goodness. Make a reservation in advance.

“Aptly Named”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Eastern Standard is just that, standard. While the staff were very friendly and helpful, the food is average with a touch of problematic - my "medium rare" grilled flat iron steak was raw, even the server agreed. The french fries overly salty. I also wished the staff had suggested a side order of vegetables. When I was there, the atmosphere was lively and very, very noisy, with a busy bar, and I could see that it would be fun with friends.

Great oysters and good happy hour. The pasta dish was very spicy but it didn't state it on the menu. Service was great.

“Excellent Food All Day Long”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

This restaurant is located adjacent to the Hotel Commonwealth and is somehow associated withe the hotel. They serve up lovely breakfast and fantastic dinners. If you can wait until late, they have amazing late-night dinner specials for killer prices. I ate here several times while staying at the hotel and would recommend it to anyone.

“Great drinks and atmosphere”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

I'm primarily familiar with Eastern Standard as a drinks place, but the food is also decent. Service is reasonably fast and attentive, although the bartenders really cinch the deal. Great for a Saturday evening.
