    Server was a pest. Came by three times before my date even arrives asking for her drink and appetizers. When she arrived he came by another few times. After feeling rushed I told the server we were not in a rush and would not be ordering food.

    Food was just ok. Eggs Benedict overcooked and potatoes were room temperature. The waiter apparently knew the people at the table beside us and spent loads of time getting shots for them while we waited 20 minutes just to get our check. He gave us a half-hearted apology claiming someone else was supposed to have dropped off the check. Overall a poor experience.

    This is a great brunch spot! Food and cocktails are awesome! Bananas foster French toast for the bride and Eggs Benedict for me. Both were outstanding. The server was very professional, timely and friendly. The top of the cake was the Bloody Mary bar that was loaded with about 15 topping for the drink, including shrimp, scallops wrapped in bacon and all the other classic garnished. It will now be a must every time I am in Boston Quincy Market area.

    3 of 4 in our party were very satisfied with their meals … Salmon, Fish & Chips, and spicy chicken sandwich were well liked. Coq Au Vin was somewhat overdone. Shrimp cocktail and clam chowder were excellent. Waiter could have checked on the table more often.

    Went for dinner- food was just “okay” nothing spectacular about it- small portions not worth the money- service was best part of experience. Probably a great place to grab a drink and a snack

    To be honest, I thought the food left a lot to be desired. The oysters were pretty good but my lobster Mac n Cheese was pretty bland and my husband didn’t care for his ribs. We’re not picky people but for the price, I expected excellent. Our server was great so nothing against the service but I think this was a one and done for us, too many places to eat it Boston!

    It was fine. Service a touch slow, but slightly excusable for a busy Saturday afternoon. Food was solid, but not remarkable. I’d probably go back, but with lower expectations.

    This is the first place I have had brunch in Boston. I am always on the hunt for Eggs Benedict and, to no surprise, Bostonia had it. There are three types you can get: traditional ham, avocado & spinach, or lobster. I went with the more traditional option. It came with a side of breakfast potatoes; a great addition. It came out relatively quickly which, was nice but, there were a lot of the same orders around, so I thought the process should have been faster. Unfortunately, I will not rush Eggs Benedict. Bostonia had plenty of seating and a robust brunch menu. I will have to try the later-day foods at some point; They surely satisfied my breakfast needs.

    Outstanding meal consisting of pasta vongole and crab crusted cod. The food presentation and unique flavors set this meal into the best we’ve had in years. Service with Catherine was terrific who was capable and friendly. We are both fussy diners and could find nothing wrong with our dinner. Bostonia is a MUST if you are near Quincy Market or the waterfront.
