We had a really nice afternoon at the terrace there, sitting in the warm october sun, having a delicious avocado toast and great drinks. Service was perfect and friendly. Really nice location, highly recommended.

Visited for new years eve cocktails, and new years day brunch. The Cesar salad was amazing, and so were the eggs. They had great cocktails and a great atmosphere. I don't like bloody marys, but they have create your own, which is cool. The staff was great and I would highly recommend the Met.

Our group of 6 were in Boston for First Night and had an early reservation at the Met so we could be done and back outside for the 7:00 PM fireworks. We had a really great meal and the staff was super friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to choose from the menu. Their "special" drinks were all very... More

Went here with 4 of my girlfriends for brunch. We all had delicious meals and the cocktail list is great. We sat in the dining room area (as opposed to the downstairs bar) so that we could have a bigger table and more light. This restaurant is also great in the summer because they have outdoor tables on Newbury Street.... More

We eat at all of the Met Bar locations but really enjoy the Newbury Street location. They have a Bloody Mary menu on weekends and food is consistent (I love the Avocado Toast and burgers are always a good choice). My favorite spot is the library bar if you can score a table there - very cosy.

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.

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.
