Success! Thanks for posting your review of Locke-Ober. You’ve done the world some good today.

Over 2 decades later

my wife and I dined here again. The main dining room is now more open and bright with the warmth of lots of wood. I believe that the large inlaid ceiling panels are old, very nice. Two sides of the room were lined with this enormous bar which appear to be used for silver service. If the restaurant was busy, that would be a great place to eat as well as to drink. Great ambience, large comfy chairs and good size... view more

It may be mediocre but at least its pompous.

Some of the classic menu items are pretty good but you cant get past the wretched location, pompous staff and drole pricing. There are much better experiences in Boston.

Very Very disappointing

My husband and I were very disappointed with the food and the atmosphere at Locke Obers. We decided to go for a special dinner on a Friday night as it was our anniversary. It was nothing like we had expected. The outside of the restaurant is tired and worn with cracked windows. The inside is very dark and gloomy. The wait staff acted as if it was still 1870 and it was a priviledge to be there. There were very f... view more

Yesterday my wife and I went to Locke Ober. It was magical. We walked in and were immediatly taken care of. The beautiful coat girl took our coats, the Maitre D' escorted us inside the main dining room to the most beautiful table. I had never seen such a magestic old Boston venue. The atmosphere was perfect! My wife and I enjoyed some Cabernet Sauvignon while the waiters addressed our every need. I ordered the... view more

Go once to expereince old Boston

You can't get more ""old Boston"" than this downtown dowager located off an alley near Downtown Crossing. The glass and woodwork is magnificent, the real essence of turn-of-the-century Boston. Sadly, the same can not be said for the staff (the front desk staff are often downright rude) nor the food (overdone and absolutely loaded with butter and cream). The wine list is extensive and expensive (as in many fine rest... view more

Classic upscale dining

Correction to the review below. My computer screen was partially covered when I originally filled it out and I meant to give ""highly recommended"" to most attributes. Sorry.\r
My memory of my one time at Locke-Ober. My friend and I had come into the city to shop and I had brought a small rolling suitcase to carry home my purchases. We were little old ladies in sensible shoes and respectable outfits. We had

A grand old warhorse

It is always amusing, instructive and even pleasing to read a negative review of a place one loves. THose of us who are Locke-Ober devoteees don't mind calumny hurled at the old girl but we of course want the place to do well else it be closed. What amuses is the extent to which someone can miss the point of the place. Of course, it is sad if someone has been rudely treated but experience shows that often(not alwa... view more

Extremely poor attitudes of the staff

We had a reservation at L.Ober for a business dinner with an international client. Upon arrival we were told 2 of the people in our party would not be allowed to enter the main because they were wearing denim; even though they were also wearing blazers and dress shoes with a very tasteful pair of denim pants. And we were not given any dress requirement upon making the reservations. The hostess told our clie... view more

Locke Ober Memories

In the early 1970's, while a student at Boston College, I developed a personal tradition of going to Locke-Ober's oince per year, by myself, as an elegant treat. I would save my money all year to make this pilgrimage. Later, after I married, I introduced my wife to the wonderful amibience and food that made Locke-Ober one of my most consistent stops when in Boston. Through the 80's, though the food failed somewhat... view more

Wonderful Evening!

My fiance and I had dinner here recently and it was WONDERFUL! The restaurant is gorgeous. It takes you back into time a bit and is a nice refreshing change from all the other restaurants in town. The service was impeccable and the food was out of this world! It is warm and very comfortable inside too. Locke Ober is a true gem in Boston.
