We came to Boston for a few days and spur of the moment wanted to stop for a quick lunch around Copley Square. Assumption was that in cities like Boston a restaurant in a prime location has to be good, otherwise it won't last, so...More

Like many Boston bars/restaurants this is a long narrow space with high ceilings. This is a bright and comfortable space that also has ample outdoor seating. However, the service was not good. We sat at a high top table across from the bar and it...More

Stopped in here again mainly for convenience of location. The food is still ok but nothing special. The service ranges from world class (Nicole), to average at best. They only have one shared toilet for men/woman/staff and it is pretty gross.

I just called because I was impatient! For all you dog lovers out there, the Globe's outdoor patio is NOT dog friendly, so you'll need to leave the pooch at home.
