Every year I do the Avon Walk. A few months back I decided to organize a wine tasting party that would include an auction to raise money for the cause. I chose The Living Room as the location because it's proximity to the financial district for the after work crowd. The management was extremely helpful with all the organizing and the staff went above and beyond to help make sure the night was successful. Some of the staff even made donations themselves. The food was yummy, the wine was flowing, and the night was a HUGE success!!!! At the end of the night when I went to settle my tab for the party I was pleasantly surprised to find my bill far less than I expected, the owner had arranged for a portion of the bill to be taken care of. His donation made a big difference so that the cost wouldn't cut in to our profits. I will definitely be using them again next year for our second annual wine tasting night!!!!
I am a fan of the Living Room and go there frequently. Like the former reviewer said, service is not at its best on real busy nights (Saturday) when everybody is out there, but it is a real jewel any other night. Most of the time I can get a couch and chill with some real comfort food at reasonable prices with my friends. I had a bunch of friends in the dining room with a big party (12) and the only problem was that took time for everyone to decide what to order with all the great selections - especially the appetizers! The drinks are not watered down and they use name brands in the well. The staff is overall very friendly and competent. The giant TV's are great for watching the games. Try it for Brunch - it is a real score!
This is one of the best restaurant in Boston i can't believe some of this comments, do this people live in this planet why so negative this restaurant has the best service, best food, best wine list in town.I dined there a week a go the best stuffed lobster in town yes it cost 40 $ but is fresh hard shell lobster stuffed with lobster meat, my wife had crab cakes yes it cost 27 $ but is real crab meat also they give you fresh popovers and marinated mushroom.Go there and try yourself don"t forget the wine list the best i town i had Cakebread Chardonnay 65 $ find one restaurant that sells Cakebread for less that 75 $.
No, sorry....where do you people normally eat? Mcdonalds?? It was good, I guess. And yes, I had the premier "lobster 3 course" dinner, and had a dozen oysters for appetizers. Ok....I guess I didn't eat what you had. And it was decent, 3 stars, but 5 stars!?? It's a food factory, it's not fine dining by any means. Sorry to burst your bubble. If you're looking for good decent food at standard prices with ok service, than this is your place. If you're thinking fine dining 5 stars, keep driving.
We left a restaurant because they were so rude and ended up here. I am so glad we did, the crab cakes were the best I have ever had. Our server was super friendly and really made us feel at home. The clam chowder was very good, the ceasar salad was fresh, crisp and the dressing was spot on. It could have been dirty when one of the reviewers was there, I have no idea, but it was clean when we went, or we would not of eaten there. Excellent, the service was superior and very friendly
This is the second time I've eaten here in two years and I must say its beautiful. The restaurants intimate but the views are spectacular and the food AND service are a step ahead. Start with the food, I had the giglante de peici(bad spelling) and it's a plate of everything, scallops, lobster, fish, shrimp, and langestein all of it grilled. It was fresh and tasty not over seasoned. The clams were fresh and service was some of the best. Next year I will definitely return. Tip...go early.
Wife grew up in Southy, so we grabbed some fish and chips while meeting some of her old friends at Castle Island, the food is good enough to rival any British or Irish pub I've been in. Only gave I 4 stars because of how crowded it was, but all the best places are! They also didn't have malt vinegar, just regular. You'd think a place with an good Irish name like Sullivan's might know how important that is, but the place was still awesome.
It's the best food, and by far, best service I've experienced in a long time. The staff members are courteous, friendly and really know their products. It's a beautiful place with lots of "oyster bar" charm. The owner/host is accommodating, charming, and makes everyone feel welcome. If there were more stars available, I'd give more! I can;t wait to return next time I'm in Boston.
Ate here as it was close to children's museum. Enjoyed our lunch and had a good server. Crab dip appetizer was delicious. Burger was 1/2 lbs, split it and had enough. Crab chowder was good. Bowl was sufficient for a meal. Kids menu includes fish, burger, hotdog, and Mac N cheese. Outdoor seating had live band. Indoor seating is tight.
