We were with friends, celebrating a birthday. There were appetizers galore which were actually quite good and we ordered a little something more, just to not be drinking without something more substantial (did I mention we're getting old?) and all of that was great. The drinks were good as well, and the waitress was good about keeping checks separated, but... More

They were the best to work with while planning a highschool reunion with about 100 guests. I would highly recommend for any work or social function. Fantastic, attentive staff the night of, and great, accommodating when planning the event. Great venue

I have been meaning to visit this place for a while now, and it lived up to the hype. My friend and I went for Team Trivia on Tuesday night. We got there early as warned to grab a comfy couch. The wait staff was very attentive and I liked their variety of beer selections. The trivia host was personable... More

Went here today for brunch and the food was awesome! I had the fried chicken with the jalapeño cornbread waffle (something I've never had before) and it was sooo tasty and not as heavy as I thought it would be. My daughter loved the banana bread French toast and my husband the chicken club. The roasted potatoes were really delicious... More

A friend and I were visiting Boston and stumbled upon this place. We had drinks and appetizers on the patio. The duck fat fries with truffle aioli are not to be missed! Also had the sliders and calamari, both were good, but those fries.... Oh, and they also mentioned that they were dog-friendly.

Very nice for a Saturday brunch! Many choices from standard breakfast fare to burgers & lunch choices. The Parmesan duck fat fries are amazing!! Great mimosas and drinks. Very comfortable atmosphere - eat at regular tables or on sofas. Fun place!

We stopped for drinks and an appetizer on a Saturday evening in the summer. There were 3 other people at the bar with a large party in the back. We ordered drinks and were handed a menu. The drinks arrived and we ordered 2 appetizers. The bartender comes back to us and says that because there is a large party... More

We are sure sorry that you were unhappy with your visit. There was a rehearsal dinner which took over our dining room and the patio was packed as well. The Chef did inform the servers to tell all guests that until the entrees came out for the wedding, that we could not accept any food orders. We really don't stock... More

I had a surprise party for my engagement at the Living Room back in June and had a great experience. Courtney made planning very easy with picking appetizers and drinks and handling any questions I had leading up to the event. The night of the event, the set up was excellent. All of the guests were put into our own... More

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
