Overall
not worth the hype

We tried out North 26 for Restaurant Week, party due to the good reviews we read on yelp and opentable. I feel like we went to a totally different place.

In restrospect, we should have been concerned before we got there. We walked through Faneuil Hall, past Ames, Kingfish and McCormick's, all of which were crowded, and got to North 26 which was almost empty.

The calamari app mentioned in other reviews was good. No where close to as good as what some of the other reviwers wre saying. Good, and not rubbery, but not more than that.

Our server was attentive. The drinks (raspberry mojito, cucumber martini) were good and refreshing.

The problem was the entree. My wife ordered the steak medium rare.It came out and was totally well done. She sent it back and asked for medium rare. The manager and another member of the staff came by very and were apologetic. A new steak came out and was way overcooked again. She complained again and the manager glared at her. Excuse me? You really don't know the differece between a red medium rare and a pinkish-brown medium well? Really? Why is that our fault?

We ended up leaving. There are way too many good places in Boston to put up with this place. Even the best food (probably the calamari) isn't as good as similar food you can get at dozens of other places in Boston.

Please listen to the handful of people giving this place 1s and 2s. The food isn't great and as others have said, the place was empty. That in itself is a huge statement in a restaurant town like Boston. You can do a lot better than North 26. Go somewhere else.
