224 was recommended by the front desk staff at my hotel. The food was excellent new American. It was innovative and clearly a neighborhood place. The only tiny concern is that I found it a bit pricey, but I found the value better than average for the quality of food they served.

I always make time to visit 224 when I'm visiting Boston. It is welcoming, the food is fantastic and varied, the staff are knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient.

A short walk up from the hotel, through a nicely revitalized neighborhood and found a unique restaurant which was cozy, with funky Decor, upscale food at moderate prices. Staff, presentation and food get A++. Must visit 224 Boston Street, Boston, Ma!

Went here expecting much more from the reviews. Food was alright but unremarkable and definitely not worth the price. Might give it another shot.

The place is cozy and relaxed.The light gives it a pub atmosphere. Everybody was very friendly and the food was good. Wine list was average, but you can't always be perfect :-)

Per the recommendation of our Holiday Inn staff, we visited the 224 Boston St. Restaurant. The food was very good, and the drinks were cold. Prices were reasonable, and the selection was plentiful. Wait staff was very nice. Good place to eat if you are in the area of Boston.

We were staying nearby and found this place. It's small but friendly looks like mostly local residents. The food was excellant, service great and prices were very reasonable. After paying much more for less at other restaurants we were very pleasantly surprised to find this place. If you are looking for a good meal this is your place.

We has a hard time finding this restaurant but it was worth the time. The cod cakes were fabulous but the shrimp cannelloni was not good...hardly any shrimp. Drink prices were also excessive compared to other places. Good place overall but thats's it.
