Amazing food! Amazing drinks! Amazing staff!

I had the tenderloin and when instructing the staff that I wanted it medium, pink but no blood, they got it spot on. I was also assured that they'd make sure I was happy with how it was cooked and when I received my meal, the staff was very attentive to make sure it was good. And it was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We also had appetizers and drinks and it was the perfect setting for a great evening out with your friends. Atmosphere friendly and inviting, food and drinks amazing and staff top notch. It was a night I will never forget!

Fruit, decafe tea and lovely young recent local grads serving!

Dinner was too expensive for anything but hamburgers and very noisy with the red sox fans

I am a regular at Eastern Standard as it's near my office, so it's fair to say that I've sampled their fare and the overall experience of eating there many times. The menu is luxe bistro, modern, light, high quality interpretations of french bistro fare. Very consistent. Standout items include their calamari app, the salmon and tuna nicoise, and great bread (served, thankfully, without having to be requested.) The setting is classy and comfortable and the professional, attentive service stands out compared to other spots in town. Just avoid it on Red Sox game nights, when the place can be packed.

You have to love the great ambiance at this spot that has better chow than you think you should find in a large bustling Kenmore Square spot such as this. Service and wine list also impress. Beer list has also been vamped up... superb. Has become an area institution... and the place to be if you want the best before a Sox game. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Eastern Standard has a really great menu with a nice variety of modern choices. Their drink menu is the real draw for me, though. The cocktail selection is huge and comes in various categories, including cocktails with egg. The bartenders provide great recommendations if you tell them what you like, don't like, etc. Everything is delicious! A definite foodie stop.
