Todd W. on Alden & Harlow (Harvard Square)
Even with the large amount of seating, a reservation seems to be the best way to get in here.
Order 7-8 dishes for 4 people and everyone gets to try a little bit of each.
Todd W. on City Girl Cafe (Inman Square)
The red currant meatballs, as well as the antipasti, are worth any sort of wait you incur.
Have had a 1 1.5-2 hour dinner many times here; service has been hit or miss in my experience.
Natty C. on Boston Burger Company (Davis Square)
Had them cater a work event. Incredible turkey chili, great burgers, on-time service. Huge hit with the staff. Absolutely recommend.
Cristina D. on Boston Burger Company (Davis Square)
Service suffers when the it's busy. A little harried and not as attentive.
Logan D. on Boston Burger Company (Davis Square)
Sometimes burger is over-cooked. Not the highest quality meat.
Todd M. on Boston Burger Company (Davis Square)
Toppings don't always blend together. Feels like they're just cobbled together without much thought.
Michael A. on Boston Burger Company (Davis Square)
Driving here can be a pain since there's not a ton of parking.
Really small space, so you might have to wait.
Baked beans on the side of the burger are always a nice treat.
Sean M. on Boston Burger Company (Davis Square)
Garlic parmesan fries are delicious.
Just steps from the Red Line Davis Square T stop and bus stops.
Outdoor seating on the street. Great on a summer evening when Davis Square is filled with music.
Massive burger selection. Fried eggs, mac and cheese, mozz sticks, pineapple. Build your own or pick from their great menu.
Molly G. on Ole (Inman Square)
Ole feels a bit out of place in quirky Inman, but the food is excellent, as are the drinks. You can almost always get a table.
Molly G. on Spoke (Davis Square)
A great date spot. Awesome wines and delicious small plates too. Easy walk from the Davis T stop.
Molly G. on Area Four (Kendall Square)
Awesome spot for beer/cocktails/pizza after work or for Sunday brunch. Add an egg to any pizza for an instant upgrade.
Molly G. on Rosebud American Kitchen (Davis Square)
I was excited for the revamp, but the service was terrible & the food was so-so. Their other restos, Posto and Painted Burro, are superior.
Molly G. on Washington Square Tavern (Brookline)
Nice, quiet alternative to Publick House. Great food with an emphasis on local, seasonal ingredients. You can almost always get a table.
Cristina D. on Tremont 647 (South End)
Reservations for brunch are only allowed for groups of 6 or more.
Michael A. on Tremont 647 (South End)
Be careful of the guac and chips the servers offer when you are seated. They are not free.
Logan D. on Tremont 647 (South End)
Sometimes the tacos can miss the mark on flavor or portion size.
Todd M. on Tremont 647 (South End)
647 is a small space that can get crowded early.
Joey T. on Tremont 647 (South End)
Service here is consistently great.
Sean M. on Tremont 647 (South End)
Chef Andy Husbands is creative and offers some great dining themes like pig roasts and street food dinners.
Pajama brunch offers some great options: Crab rangoon scramble, french toast sticks, and servers in PJs!
Outdoor seating and huge windows make it perfect for summer days in the South End.
Taco Tuesdays are outstanding and they offer a different menu each week.
Caroline B. on Myers + Chang (South End)
New favorite - it was amazing. The fish tacos and the chow fun were highlights
Chris P. on Barcelona (South End)
Get there early and stay late. The food is delicious (don't be scared off by the beef tongue) and the staff is extremely knowledgable.
Todd M. on Barcelona (South End)
On occasion, they struggle to honor reservation times and some people wait up to an hour after their reservation time.
Cristina D. on Barcelona (South End)
The South End Barcelona is smaller than the Brookline location (but just as popular), so it can feel cramped at times.
Logan D. on Barcelona (South End)
Like many popular spots in the South End, there can be a long wait (up to 2 hours), if you don't have a reservation.
Sean M. on Barcelona (South End)
As a newly opened restaurant (December, 2015) they're still ironing out a few kinks (although they're pretty minor).
Their beer selection is a little sparse. They choose to concentrate instead on cocktails, sangrias, and Spanish wines.
Michael A. on Barcelona (South End)
Very crowded, especially around the bar on the weekend. Can feel like being on the T during rush hour.
Opened in December 2014, this is Barcelona’s 2nd location in Boston (this first is in Brookline’s Washington Square).
Joey T. on Barcelona (South End)
A great alternative to the long waits and high prices at Toro down the street.
Unlike some other popular spots in the South End, Barcelona takes reservations!
Portion sizes are generous and prices are reasonable - almost all their tapas are under $10 each. One of the best values in the South End.
The food is fantastic; highlights are hanger steak, kale salad, chorizo & figs, patatas bravas, truffled bikini, migas, braised short rib.
They have awesome management that pays close attention to detail and truly cares about your dining experience. They run a tight ship!
Servers are friendly, attentive, knowledgeable, and work together seamlessly as a team.
Michaela K. on The Regal Beagle (Brookline)
They don't have beer on tap
Natty C. on Hops N Scotch (Brookline)
Nice place for an Old Fashioned. Knowledgeable bartenders with excellent recommendations based on drinks you like.
Natty C. on Washington Square Tavern (Brookline)
Food is pricey and can be hit or miss. Bar area can get packed on a busy night with folks waiting for tables.
Best spot for a drink in Washington Square. Love the "Beacon and Wash". Stuart and Connor are fantastic bartenders and good dudes.
Michael A. on The Merchant (Downtown)
The portion sizes are ridiculous – entrees are sized like appetizers.
Logan D. on The Merchant (Downtown)
The after-work crowd is a bit overwhelming – the place gets really loud and busy around 6pm.
Todd M. on The Merchant (Downtown)
The menu leaves a lot to be desired.
Sean M. on The Merchant (Downtown)
The dinner area and the bar are too close, making it a loud dinner atmosphere.
The lively atmosphere provides a great place to eat with friends.
Joey T. on The Merchant (Downtown)
The bartenders are very knowledgeable in regard to the menu, and they aren’t afraid to recommend a few selections.
One of the best beer and wine menus in the area – extensive and priced fairly.
The service is great – servers are attentive and friendly.
Justin F. on Blue Dragon (Seaport)
An oddly good selection of sour beer
Allie P. on Beat Hotel (Harvard Square)
Funky atmosphere (operated by same team as Beehive in South End) and live music. Large on the inside so plenty of space for a group dinner.
The clams were spicy and amazing
Allie P. on Bukowski Tavern (Inman Square)
Hot dogs are cooked to perfection w/buttered and toasted buns. DELISH.
Sean M. on Ward 8 (North End)
Smaller space than the website wants you to believe.
Todd M. on Ward 8 (North End)
Sassy bartenders are a turn-off.
Logan D. on Ward 8 (North End)
Entrees aren’t great, a little scattered with no real stand-out.
Michael A. on Ward 8 (North End)
Tends to be very busy and can become loud, worth making a reservation instead of just dropping in.
Cocktail menu is organized by the main liquor in the drink. I nice way to find what you want.
Prices are reasonable for the options and the setting.
A great starting and ending point for a night spent in the North End or at TDGarden for a game or a show.
Cristina D. on Ward 8 (North End)
Shared plates are the best part of the menu. Cheese board, 5 layer dip, and maple chili duck wings.
Cocktails are well made and sneaky strong. Moscow Mules come in the copper mugs!
The burger is the best of the entree choices.
Cristina D. on Daddy Jones (Somerville)
Heavy hand on the alcohol pushes the cocktails just out of range of well-balanced
Logan D. on Daddy Jones (Somerville)
Veggie/Vegan-friendly options limited for entrees.
Sean M. on Daddy Jones (Somerville)
Most underrated brunch in the area- don’t stand in line all morning!
Michael A. on Daddy Jones (Somerville)
Skordalia dip will kill vampires and please garlic lovers.
Todd M. on Daddy Jones (Somerville)
Super fun decor and muted 80s/90s TV shows great for taking in or starting conversations
Local owner adds a major dose of delicious Greek inspiration to the food.
Cristina D. on The Independent (Somerville)
Late 2014 menu update downgraded the mac n cheese.
Logan D. on The Independent (Somerville)
Ask the waitstaff what’s good; the menu is too spotty to rely on.
Todd M. on The Independent (Somerville)
Skip their brunch
Sean M. on The Independent (Somerville)
Relatively cheap for brunch- under $20 and nearly impossible to finish it all.
Michael A. on The Independent (Somerville)
Great waitstaff and management with a customer-first attitude.
Deviled eggs are delish!
Reasonable, tasty oysters.
Try one of their speciality cocktails, like the ‘Calamity Jane’
Rotating beer selection is great.
Michael A. on Brass Union (Somerville)
Mostly smaller plates- don’t expect large portions.
Logan D. on Brass Union (Somerville)
For die-hard fans of predecessor ‘Precint’, it’s not ‘where everybody knows your name’ anymore.
Cristina D. on Brass Union (Somerville)
If you’re going for the games, make sure a party hasn’t reserved the space, or you’ll just be drinking.
Tapas-style service for apps? Try the mushroom toast.
It’s play time! Bar in the back with couches, several board games, and shuffleboard.
Todd M. on Brass Union (Somerville)
Great cocktails- Jalisco Fizz!
Michael A. on Bukowski Tavern (Inman Square)
Overhaul removed the token neighborhood ‘grimy’ beer spot.
Logan D. on Bukowski Tavern (Inman Square)
Late-2014 overhaul to seating arrangement means cramped quarters and the constant threat of spilled drinks from servers’ trays.
Sean M. on Bukowski Tavern (Inman Square)
Vegetarians / vegans are extremely limited.
Cristina D. on Bukowski Tavern (Inman Square)
Chef Brian Poe of Tip Tap Room is frequently in house and keeps an eye out.
Impressive beer rotation.
Tater tot dishes are fantastic.
Beer samples so you’re a happy camper.
Angela C. on Netflix
I wish they would refresh their movie selection more often.
Michael C. on Netflix
Three words: House. Of. Cards.
Tara B. on Netflix
I love that they release a whole season of original shows at once.
Troy L. on Tally
Allowing people to post anonymously really encourages the trolls to come out in droves, especially on political topics.
Marian M. on Tally
I love seeing the number of Agrees on a Take showing support for the comment. That validates it and shows it is not just 1 persons idea.
Elizabeth T. on JetBlue
More legroom, 40 TV channels, free snacks, full sized beverages & great service. No other airline competes.
Troy L. on Amazon
Amazon Prime is the best deal out there!
Todd M. on Border Cafe (Harvard Square)
Border Cafe has big awesome margaritas!
Todd M. on True Detective
Matthew McConaughey was haunting and riveting as Rust Cohle. Best role of his life.
Troy L. on Yelp
I don't want to hear that you give 1 star b/c you were having a bad day and the waiter rolled his eyes at you even though the food was great
Dean K. on Whole Foods
The prepared foods section far exceeds that of any other competitor. Tasty, diverse, healthy food with a lot of options.
Michael C. on Tally
The best place on the web to capture opinions on whats happening now!
Annie M. on Tally
I want to see the people who agreed with a take, maybe my fb friends? It might validate a take for me!
Christine H. on Tally
No option to comment on another’s post - keeps message board craziness out of the picture and allows for a more topic-focused experience
Hannah T. on President Barack Obama
It's about time a president stands up for same sex marriage!
Andrew S. on Redbones (Davis Square)
Decent BBQ for the northeast, great atmosphere and huge portions
Todd M. on NBA Finals (2014)
The flopping is out of control. You're not hurt. There's no blood. Just play basketball.
Todd M. on Netflix
I wish Netflix had HBO shows. Amazon really ate your lunch when they grabbed so much top-shelf HBO content for their Prime streaming.
Todd M. on The Beehive (South End)
The Beehive has awesome live music downstairs. They're always changing it up and bringing in cool new bands.
Troy L. on Hillary Clinton
Would be a brilliant, pragmatic leader who would restore gravitas to the Oval Office.
Michael C. on Hillary Clinton
Clinton = Competence. She would be the most well qualified president we have had in a while.
Elizabeth T. on World's Best and Worst Companies
Google. Changed the world, no further explanation needed.
Todd M. on Zaftigs Delicatessen (Brookline)
Zaftigs is THE place to go for weekend brunch in Brookline, so the lines are usually pretty rough.
Troy L. on Twitter
My first stop every morning now to get the news and what's relevant for me.
Troy L. on The Food Network
Love having reruns of Chopped on in the background. Always amazed at what they come up with.
Marian M. on Whole Foods
The produce is a great draw. Hard to go back to a regular supermarket after you've perused the whole foods aisles
Elizabeth T. on Mike's Pastry (North End)
Long lines of tourists and better pastries across the street at Modern.
Todd M. on World's Best and Worst Companies
Comcast: Basically a monopoly, no matter where you look there's a clear sign they put corporate profits above customers.
Dean K. on World's Best and Worst Companies
Uber: revolutionizing transportation in cities around the world. One of the most customer-service-oriented companies.
Troy L. on Parish Cafe (Back Bay)
Great beer selection and a rotation of excellent sandwiches designed by chefs from around Boston.
Todd M. on Life Alive (Central Square)
Definitely one of the best organic vegetarian / vegan spots in the whole Boston area
Eric S. on Border Cafe (Harvard Square)
Border is amazing... Tasty food, lively atmosphere. Great place to go for dinner and drinks without breaking the bank.
Todd M. on Barcelona (Brookline)
Amazing food, superb service, fun atmosphere, and reasonable prices make this one of the best spots in Brookline.
Anthony H. on Amazon Kindle
No doubt, Kindle is indeed an excellent dedicated e-reader that will change your reading experience
George M. on NBA Finals (2014)
Wish my beloved Celtics were involved
Hannah T. on Tally
I can't wait to use Tally for choosing restaurants and venues without wading through long winded comments!
Hannah T. on Justin Bieber
Another teenage idol turned terrible role model! Just what we needed.
Matt N. on Top of the Hub (Back Bay)
Pro Tip: Anyone can go up and hang @ the bar, which is a great way to impress on a date but save $$ getting dinner elsewhere before/after
Rebecca S. on The Salty Pig (Back Bay)
my go-to for charcuterie in Boston. love the "build your own" style.
Stephen W. on Amazon Kindle
book lovers who think they need to hold a tangible book to read will get over it when they reading a kindle on a beach with a corona.
Todd M. on Game of Thrones (Season 4)
Peter Dinklage. Enough said.
Michael W. on NBA Finals (2014)
The two best teams in the NBA with completely different styles, depths, and personnel, going to war every other night, what's not to love?
Kathleen K. on President Barack Obama
He has brought a compromised health reform to Americans; is it perfect "no; is it a start that was sorely needed "yes."
Justin B. on Tally
Works really well on web AND mobile without having to install an app. Makes it easy to bring up feeds or takes from e-mail on my phone.
David E. on House of Cards
The acting is incredible! The leads, as well as the supporting cast. Across the board amazing!
Lance G. on Tally
Can you unagree with something? If not, that feature should be added.
Stacey F. on Tally
It would be nice to be able to mouse over the agreed number and see who agreed with you....
Marian M. on Amazon Delivery Drones
Think of all the postal drivers who would be out of a job if we had little flying machines delivering our packages. I vote for the jobs
Todd M. on Whole Foods
I feel like if Whole Foods has allowed it in their store, it's safe and healthy for me to eat.
Justin M. on Mike's Pastry (North End)
Best canolies ever...I recall recently saying to my friend that they were sent from heaven...that about sums it up
Marian M. on World's Best and Worst Companies
Whole Foods: Environmentally conscious. Also created a foundation to help women lift themselves out of poverty.
George M. on Facebook
Can share lives with friends and family that I don't see often and would not be sharing without it
Todd M. on The Barking Crab (Seaport)
The Barking Crab is a bit of a tourist trap, and there are plenty of other local spots for great seafood.
Joseph S. on Sunset Grill & Tap (Allston / Brighton)
Biggest selection of drafts and bottles in Boston, and quite possibly the biggest menu as well, including a section just for potato skins!
Chris P. on Parish Cafe (Back Bay)
The Zuni Roll. Period. Go order it and thank me later.
Andrew S. on Sweet Cheeks (Fenway)
The biscuits. Oh my goodness the biscuits
Todd M. on Cinquecento (South End)
So nice to have free parking right next to the restaurant
Elizabeth T. on The Salty Pig (Back Bay)
Surprisingly good pizza.
Sean S. on Tally
Way to go Todd Myers! You are the man!
Hannah T. on Amazon
It's hard to beat a website that lets you shop for nearly ANYTHING you could possible want in one place!
George M. on Yelp
We can do better than Yelp. How about Tally
Justin M. on Yelp
I have to pick through too many reviews before feeling that I've gotten the big picture
Zak R. on JetBlue
Love the availability of flights to/from Boston Logan. Great airline to fly for business or pleasure.
David E. on JetBlue
They don't skimp on "amenities". Another can of soda? No problem! More bags of Pop Corners? No problem. A superior experience to all others!
Michael W. on LeBron James
Can guard all 5 spots and is a locomotive in transition. Basically unstoppable when he wants to be without ever being selfish.
Zak R. on Alibi (Beacon Hill)
Crowd a little too pretentious for my tastes. Similar demographic w/ better crowd can be found at Legal Harborside.
Ryan T. on Netflix
I tried to renew my dad's gift subscription for Father's Day and they don't allow gift subscriptions anymore... Big Mistake!
Troy L. on Obamacare
It has its flaws but as Bill Clinton said "America can't afford to let the perfect be the enemy of the good." Obamacare does a lot of good.
Troy L. on Spurs Win the NBA Championship
Unbelievable dismantling of the Heat. Best all-around team performance in a long time.
Troy L. on World's Best and Worst Companies
Seaworld: see Blackfish
Todd M. on Top of the Hub (Back Bay)
Top of the Hub is a must-see restaurant for anyone visiting Boston
Elizabeth T. on Sunset Grill & Tap (Allston / Brighton)
Great nachos and margaritas.
Lina L. on Life Alive (Central Square)
Standing in line is at least a 20min commitment but the secret is to call in your order! Pick up when your order is ready and cut the line!
Cristina D. on Saloon (Davis Square)
Underground and no sign? Way to give me that Prohibition feel! Great cocktails from the era-clad bartenders.
Matt N. on State Park (Kendall Square)
Pinball AND table top shuffle board? Yes please.
Adrian C. on President Barack Obama
Arrived on the "hope" ticket. Hope quickly turned to disillusionment. US politics remains business as usual.
Alex R. on Netflix
Although sometimes it feels stale, Netflix continues to have one of the strongest TV and movie streaming libraries available today.
Andrew S. on Netflix
Nail it with great documentaries. TV series (even if they aren't the newest), and strong original content like House of Cards.
Anthony H. on Netflix
Need more recent movies!
Beth W. on 113th U.S. Congress (2013 - 2015)
They can't get anything done and don't know how to work together for the public good.
Marie M. on Comcast and Time Warner Merger
Less competition in an already limited market does not seem likely to improve the already terrible service provided by these two companies.
Chris P. on World Cup Brazil
The world's biggest sport. You have to wait 4 years b/t each tournament. National Pride. Simply the best sporting event in the world.
Hannah T. on Amazon Delivery Drones
Who really needs something delivered THAT fast? Is it worth a sky full of robots?!
Marian M. on Yelp
I simply don't believe the reviews are real. They are entertaining if you remind yourself they are fake
Ryan T. on Amazon Delivery Drones
This is one of those cool yet impractical ideas that is, at best ahead of it's time. The public isn't ready for this on a significant scale.
George M. on Whole Foods
Before you can eat healthy the food must be healthy
Cost. How much can people afford for better food
Todd M. on Apple
I really appreciate their fine attention to detail
HBO: Everything they create is incredible, and they shine in every category from Drama, to Comedy, to Fantasy.
Marian M. on Amazon Prime
Prime is the best deal around. Worth every penny.
Elizabeth T. on Flour Bakery (South End)
Amazing breakfast sandwich.
Troy L. on Island Creek Oyster Bar (Fenway)
Best oyster selection in the city!
Todd M. on Regina Pizzeria (North End)
If you're driving in, parking in the North End is rough
Todd M. on Toro Restaurant (South End)
Toro doesn't take reservations and the wait is usually 1-3 hours
Elizabeth T. on Top of the Hub (Back Bay)
Touristy, overpriced and the food isn't anything special.
Logan D. on The Beehive (South End)
On Fri/Sat the door guys act like you're trying to get into an exclusive NYC club. Dudes, it's just the Beehive.
Zak R. on Drink (Seaport)
Bartenders are actually magicians.
Lina L. on Oleana (Inman Square)
This is my favorite place ever; whipped feta is a must as are the fried oysters. Service is always great and quality of food is top notch!
Cristina D. on Ole (Inman Square)
Tableside guacamole. So much yes.
Tara B. on Clover (Food Truck)
The chickpea fritter is where it's at: falafel balls with tangy slaw and refreshing cucumber relish.
