We stumbled in to Met by accident after another nearby venue told us it would be 2-1/2 hours wait. My wife and son were in the mood for a burger and they were not at all disappointed. They each had the award-winning Jacques Burger, "hash brown potato / bacon / Swiss cheeses / truffle mayo / buttered potato roll." The... More

Came here on a whim for brunch. We did not have a reservation so we were seated downstairs. When we first arrived there was hardly anyone in the restaurant but after a while the place was PACKED! Our food arrived promptly and was delicious. I had the stuffed French toast and my fiancé had the breakfast fries. We were both... More

Loved my green goddess Kale Salad and truffle frites. Sounds simple but is was sophisticated! Frites with roasted sages and Parmesan shavings, kale salad with spicy pumpkin seeds, roasted salmon and avocado. Great restaurant in the middle of Newberry street shopping.

Our lunch was good. Ambiance is nice, service fine. Hadn't been here in a while... enjoyed our burger and the Virginia ham sandwich. Good central location for Back Bay shopping. Ate indoors but the patio can be nice when open on a good day.

This place was pretty good! Our friend picked it to meet him there while we were visiting Boston. Met Back Bay is located off Newbury Street in the Back Bay neighborhood, which we loved walking around in. We went on the earlier side to make it to a Ghost Tour we had booked later in the evening so there were... More

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The food (especially the short rib tacos--while an appetizer,it could be a lightish meal--and burgers) are of excellent quality and flavorful and the service was perfect. For the prices they charge (given its location), this place is a great choice with food choices for all. Can't go wrong!

I love this place and come every year when I go to Boston. My favorite is the salmon burger with the Tokyo sauce. The food is excellent and the location is right on Newbury Street.

Enjoyed the food; however, the service was very slow. Great avocado toast. Don't go if you're in a rush.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
