The food was very bad becuase Chef Joshua Davis and his so called Red Paint Hospitality company are terrible. They didn't pay the cleaning crew that did the pre opening cleaning. I guess karma bites. Out of business in no time. You cant screw hard...More

There are not a lot of choices around symphony hall unless you like Asian food. Food was okay, service passable. The Arnold Palmer was terrible and they used BBQ sauce on fajitas. Who does that? Reuben sandwich was very good, as were the sweet potato...More

This place is simply rubbish. Don't waste a moment even thinking about going there. Plenty of good bars and restaurants in Boston, this place deserves to go under.

Ate here early on a Saturday evening before a show at the Huntington. Wide range of food choices and decent prices for the area. The specialty drinks were a bit too expensive for us. We would have loved to try the Scorpion Bowl but at...More

The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but
loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find
victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located
within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign
is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the
