We came for brunch and both got delicious bloody marys though they were hard to drink with all the veggies in and on top. We took our time before ordering after we got a plate to put our celery stalk etc on. Hessen was helpful and didnt rush us. My husband ordered the eggs benedict and I got the breakfast sandwich. You would think the bene would be more special but the presentation was lacking and the taste was pretty average. no garnish or anything was on the plate with the two benedicts and the canadian bacon was sort of crispy. In contrast my egg sandwich was way better than I imagined. I had a real fried egg with crispy corners and the yolk was still a little runny-perfect in my book. It was accompanied by tasty fried potatoes.

Brunch on a Saturday, so below their usual standard and a disappointment. We walked several miles to get there, walking off our meal ahead of time! We ordered tea at 9 a.m., and eventually, after some excuses about the teas being 'unpacked and organized', our tea was served at 9:30. Hard to fathom. And mine was the wrong tea. I needed a de -caffeinated mint and was given a green tea full to the brim of caffeine. The solution. Not to charge me for the tea. The food was okay, but arrived shortly before our neighbors' who had arrived long after we did. Our overall experience had been spoiled by sitting there for so long and waiting.

went with friends pre red sox game, food was pretty good. Salmon was good, other had sandwisches and pasta, no complaints. Did order a steak, a NY. they only give you half a steak though, dry and tough was a of poor quality, also quite pricey for three dried out pieces of steak that had been cooked earlier. Would recommend the Island Creek Restaurant a few doors down. Food came out fast, waiter was great, but it's a tourist trap before a red sox game.

Loved the Saturday brunch, had a delicious breakfast sandwich and a tasty cold brew ice coffee. Our server was helpful, funny and very charming.

The restaurant is right off of the Kenmore T Stop, right around the corner from Fenway, and perfect for before the game. We were walk-ins and sat at a high top table in the bar. I had the seared Maine salmon (cooked to my liking and was excellent) and my husband had the rigatoni, which was amazing (I kept stealing forkfuls). The service was friendly and efficient and we would recommend it highly.
