Bostongirl's Reviews
 
The Union Oyster House, located on the Freedom Trail, near Faneuil Hall, enjoys the unique distinction of being America's oldest restaurant. The Boston fixture, housed in a building dating back to pre-revolutionary days, started serving food in 1826 and has continued ever since with the stalls and oyster bar, where Daniel Webster was a constant customer, in their original positions.

"This was our first time here. Overall the food was good but not great. The clam chowder had great flavor but not a lot in it. The lobster roll was probably the most lackluster lobster roll I've ever had. It actually tasted very bland, like nothing, and the amount of lobster was very skimpy for a $23 sandwich. Also, the quality of the what little lobster was inside was not the best. However, the fish and chips and fried fish platter were good. The drinks and beer were cool, not cold. Our waitress was excellent."

"Byblos has fantastic Lebanese food which is always consistent. A definite family favorite. The wait staff worked hard and hustled through the crowd but their personalities could use some overhauling."

"Extensive GLUTEN-FREE MENU and NO-CORKAGE POLICY." <br /><br />Hurley's Restaurant & Bar is in the town of Yountville located in the heart of Napa Valley. The restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere where great food, wine and service come together. Executive Chef/owner, Bob Hurley combines fresh ingredients with a little Mediterranean flair to create a local California cuisine high in flavor. Wrought iron fencing encloses a large, heated patio for casual dining. Or relax and enjoy a drink at the lively bar that is graced by warm mahogany and amber lighting. The inside Dining Room, highlighted by a stone fireplace, is a favorite among locals and winemakers.<br /><br />The menu has been expanded to include late-night dining and can be enjoyed every evening (at the bar or on the heated patio) from 9pm to midnight.<br /><br />Hurley's Restaurant has the perfect dining areas for groups of varying sizes. The management staff will be happy to assist you to arrange your next party.

"This restaurant was highly recommended by some other tourists we ran into and received great reviews on Open Table. Thought we'd give it a try. Beautifull view if you sit outside. Appetizers were good, not great, but very pricey for the small dishes served (there were TWO whole squash blossoms). I did not like my entree, gnocchi with vegetables. It was in a brown butter sauce or I should say swimming in a brown butter sauce and had a strange flavor. My husband ordered the wild boar which he said was good but it was very dry. Did not bother with dessert. Will not be returning here if back in the area."

"The meal here started off rather strangely. Ordered the juicy dumplings which containes 6 (3 pork, 3 crab roe). We wanted all 6 to be pork. That was a decision that had to be made by the kitchen, not the waitress. Really? Wild Boar Noodles were very good. The Kung Pao chicken was not. Chicken was overcooked and dry and there was no sauce. When we told the waitress, she said she'd let the kitchen know. No taking it off our bill, no offering a different entree. That was $15 down the drain. I so wanted this to be a perfect experience but sadly it was not."
