    Hostess and greeters were awesome! So energetic and friendly! One had an awesome accent and just moved to Boston. So bubbly and fun! (Speakeasy)Drinks were okay, bar staff was very unfriendly and seemed annoyed by everything. Unsure if it was the heat or just the atmosphere but most likely won’t be returning. Reviews were awesome and we read some before going. We found CN in an article of one of the bars you HAVE to visit when in Boston. Was a total disappointment. Left early and found a different bar.

    Unique atmosphere, great accommodating and attentive staff. Only bad thing was their avocado BLT, called BALT. The bacon was shoe-leather tough and could not be chewed. Otherwise, a good experience. A little ridiculous that they require a credit card to make a reservation, especially for lunch - but must be they've been burned by cancellation reservations often.

    My group and I visited Carrie Nation for a 21st birthday party with high hopes, but we were disappointed :(. Our server was rushed, the drinks were weak, and the atmosphere was quiet and lacking on a Friday night. The brussel sprout appetizer came out pretty close to raw, and I do not like to send food back but they were too firm to eat. The server was kind and brought back another but they were still way undercooked which was a bummer. My group and I weren’t sure if it was just an off night, but for the money we payed, we just felt the experience was extremely underwhelming unfortunately.

    When I got there. They were closing despite what the website or google had said. When I made my reservation it required my credit card in case there was a cancellation. Completely unacceptable and a waste of my time.

    Except for some beautiful period lighting the space is all dark wood and rather depressing. The food was unexceptional. My steak was on the small side but cooked as requested. Asked the waiter if I could substitute “hand cut fries” for “shoestring fries” (as described on the menu) and he said they were the same. What? The waiter seemed rushed, nervous, inexperienced and lacking any patience or friendliness. Hostess very pleasant.

    I was expecting something more underground, more unique. This was another crowded overpriced millennial bar. The server was wonderful but stretched too thin. Drinks took forever. Martini was tiny and room temp. It was loud - could not hear each other. Cool room decor but otherwise- not worth the $100 per person price tag.

    The place was clearly short-staffed, like many places, so service was very slow and we ended up going to the bar to get our own drinks before we got the chance to order dinner. Cocktail selection was quite small, and we weren't too keen on the ones we tried. Food was mostly pretty good.

    My waiter seemed very nervous. It was like pulling teeth asking him for suggestions for drinks and food, he seemed very uncomfortable and was not knowledgeable at all. The food was ok, my husband ordered fried fish, it didn't have any flavor. I ordered the prosciutto and fig bruschetta which was ok. I love prosciutto and fig, but why add the bread? It didn't do anything for the dish. A friend ordered the pork and was not impressed. We did love the atmosphere though and I would return. If not for the food and service, it was nice to go out, listen to music, and have a drink and something to eat. I also liked the speakeasy in the back. The DJ played 80's-90's r&b and rap mixes, which I loved because I'm old :) at least much older than most of the crowd.

    The prices have gone up too much for me to go back for dinner. I like the atmosphere and service but $25 for a small piece of chicken and 4 (yes there were actually just 4) green beans is too much. We were both still hungry after dinner.
