"The Roost certainly has the potential to become a great little neighborhood go to restaurant. During our meal I was disappointed however. Upon entering we were greeted by a very friendly hostess. The waiter was prompt, a little slow with our drinks, but friendly enough. We ordered the hash and 2 poached eggs. It really was a bland and the plate could have used some garnish to brighten it. We were told it came with toast but it didn't. We asked again and it we still didn't get the toast. My wife thought a Virgin Mary at $7.00 was a little high but overall the prices were very good.
I think it may have been a bit busy for the two wait staff I saw.
I want to try it for dinner in a few weeks because I think it really is a nice place. I'll probably have to go by myself."

Legal Crossing is an urban neighborhood restaurant inspired by the vibrancy of Downtown Crossing, then and now. It's a cross between all of the Legal Sea Foods concepts, evolved into a new, singular experience.

"As always the food at Legal's is excellent. The presentation, the taste and the flavors all combine to make for a savory and enjoyable meal. This was the case at Legal X. We enjoyed our meal very much. I think the simply X portion of the menu where you can pick an entrée only with the chef's choice of sides. I had the cod which was cooked perfectly.
The service was a little off on New Years Eve - drink order was slow, table not set properly - but everyone was very nice and that made up for it."

Grace Restaurant offers a first rate menu in an atmosphere of artistic mastery. In 2009 the historic Chestnut Street Church, in downtown Portland, was restored to its original beauty while creating a modern interior that both complemented the sculptural details of the church and reflected the innovative cuisine of chef, Peter Sueltenfuss.

"For the last three weeks, between Boston and New York, my wife and I have been eating out quite a bit. However our recent visit to Grace really outdid any restaurants in Boston and NYC that we dined at.. First is the dining area, a Methodist church with many of the original interior features, really creates a dazzling experience. Divided into upper and lower dining rooms with bars in each provided a great view for people watching. Second, the service was exceptional and the servers knowledgeable. Our server Burt was very good. Thirdly the food was out of this world. My wife had the chicken dish which was very moist and the vegetables and sauce added terrific complements. I had the steak frittes. The meat was cooked perfectly and practically melted in your mouth. Again the vegetables and sauce really complemented the entrée.
WE certainly enjoyed Grace and look forward to another visit."

"We were here for the Easter Sunday Brunch. It was okay. I think the Sinclair is known more for it's music."

"On our way to the Currier Museum we stopped in the Firefly for lunch. It was excellent. THe tomato soup was nice a creamy and the pulled park was just spicy enough. Very good . I would like to make a trip back for dinner. Our waitress was very nice and provided great service. O think her name as Danielle."

Merrill & Co., named for the late Merrill Lieberman, founder of Connecticut’s Merrill Industries and known as “Pop” to many. A humble man who truly achieved the American dream, Merrill valued the kinship and hospitality found in the restaurants he frequented and they in turn appreciated his kindness and generosity. Merrill & Co. is a South End nod to the ease and comfort of the classic American diner where Pop would certainly have felt at home.<br /><br />American comfort food is the focus and a raw bar features several types of oysters. Our full bar respects the best of spirits, beer & wine with a strong emphasis on house and classic cocktails. Brunch is served on Saturdays from 10 AM to 3:30 PM and from 10 AM to 8 PM on Sunday. We look forward to having you in!

 Tello's
Tello's
What a find! Lit with candles and chandeliers, this cozy place has such a wonderful old-world feel that you may think you've walked onto the set of a Martin Scorsese film. A helpful staff serves up hefty portions (light on price) of well prepared Italian fare. Pasta is cooked al dente every time and the seafood is plentiful and fresh. Be sure to join us on Saturday and Sunday for our boozy brunch - for only an additional $12, enjoy unlimited drinks with your brunch entree. We also offer a 3-course pre-theatre menu for only $19.95 from 4-7pm daily.

"My wife and I enjoy Tello's. The food is always very good and the service is friendly. Portions are a little to large for us. Whenever we are in New York during the spring and summer so we can sit outside Tello's is on our list."

At Bettola, the wonderful aroma of our wood-burning oven greets you at the door and infuses the food at your table—from baked asparagus to Cornish hen to our signature light-as-air thin-crust pizzas. Our philosophy is simple: satisfying rustic Italian cuisine, good wine, friendly servers, and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. We hope to see you soon.

"Unfortunately we live in Boston and are unable to frequent this restaurant as much as we would like to. We have been twice and each time the food was prepared and presented wonderfully. Veal was excellent and some of the best I've had. My wife always enjoys the Bolognese. Best she has had. Service is always friendly."
