"I had read somewhere about their awesome burger so of course I had to check it out. It was quite unimpressive and way too salty, and I LOVE salt. The burger itself had great texture, crispy on the outside, moist on the inside, but it was SO salty and that was before you took into account the cheese and the onions. And then the fries were doused in sea salt - so much so I couldn't even use ketchup which only made it worse. The sparkling sangria tasted like kitchen cleaner. And to make things worse, theres like NO space in the place. NO place for your purse, or coat...who wants to hang their expensive coat at the end of the restaurant on some wall? Overall, I am not convinced and won't be going back."

The historic and beautiful Parker's Restaurant is your destination for fine dining in Boston. Our Executive Chef, Gerard Tice, is a master at creating a feast for your senses. He deliciously combines classic New England cuisine with contemporary-American flair at the birthplace of Boston Cream Pie, the Parker House roll and Baked Boston Schrod. <br /><br />“I have dinner 5 or 6 times a year in Parker’s. It is always a pleasure. A quiet, civilized environment with very courteous and experienced wait staff. Relaxing background music. A serious and comfortable place to have dinner with no gimmicks.” Daniel Greco, Salem, MA <br />

"I came here to experience the birthplace of the Boston Creme Pie and to be honest I wasn't really that impressed. The outer coating of nuts didn't work for me.....I was actually more pleased with the roll that they are known for! However my favorite dish was the foie gras- it was cooked to perfection and I would go back just for that! My bf had the braised short rib which i found too salty, and my lamb was good though not outstanding in any way."

"It's mentioned in multiple places on their website that their food is made to order so expect a wait. If I had not been warned I think I probably would have been upset by it. And I have to say that the food is definitely worth waiting for. BUT the wait is noticeable if you are used to having your food come out in a few minutes. I suggest going with a large group so the time goes by faster and for sure bring a bottle of wine for them to turn in to sangria. It was SO good we ran out to get another bottle of wine and even AFTER that we stole an unfinished pitcher from the table next to ours! The pork belly salad was well balanced and fresh. My fried chicken and waffle was yummy, although a tad heavy on some sort of spice or pepper in the batter, and the sorbet was lots of fun- sweet potato rocky road (?!!?), mint chocolate and blackberry. The decaf cappuccino was probably the only thing that disappointed me. All in all I would totally go back."

"VERY pleased with my brunch there! The lychee mimosa was super yummy- by far my favorite flavor of all their mimosas. The chocolate rice pudding with bacon bits was SO GOOD- I still think about it! I also had the Sizzling Sissig with a side of garlic rice and that also very tasty- so tasty we ordered it twice!- you need the rice or it is way too salty....but I love the incorporation of different parts of the pig- love pig ears! I would totally go back!! I also had to make a last minute change to my reservation and they were very accommodating."

Korean Restaurant & Bar, BarKogi specializes in Korean Fusion Cuisine & Korean Fried Chicken. Full Service Bar & Lounge with 20 Craft Beers on draft.<br /><br />BarKogi’s enticing menu of Asian fusion fare entertains taste buds with a tantalizing spread of fresh local veggies, juicy cuts of chicken and short rib, fresh seafood, and eclectic cocktails. The restaurant's signature Korean-style fried chicken dances across palates with the wholesome flavor of vegetarian-fed poultry free from hormones, antibiotics, or opinions about whether the egg preceded it. As guests sip specialty soju cocktails or frosty draft beers, they can admire BarKogi’s ultramodern décor, which showcases onyx-black tabletops and pristine white furnishings.

"Was here over the weekend for their Brunch all you can drink special. They refilled the drinks readily however our dishes did take oddly quite a long time to show up...which seemed strange since the place was empty. I was going to order fried chicken to go but since it took so long to get our main dishes I thought best not to. The food was good, had the korean bbq steak, friend had the stuffed pancakes...which she didn't realize were scallion pancakes...so take note...luckily she liked them. But it might be a shock if you were expecting the sweet kind."
