Dined here recently with my wife and granddaughter and enjoyed the food. The service was very slow and very attentive. I don't mine paying high prices for good food and service . This place fell short on service.

Tail of the Lion was really disappointing. Huge ice cube made it difficult to drink, but there really wasn’t much else in the glass. I’ve never had a cocktail with so little alcohol. Noisy atmosphere.More

Post 390 puts a contemporary twist on the traditional tavern experience, with seasonally inspired dishes that reflect Chef Nick Deutmeyer’s passion for fresh ingredients and unforgettable flavors. On the first floor is the Tavern—a casual but sophisticated menu and atmosphere, with a 25-seat bar and high top and banquette seating area, warmed by a beautiful four-sided fireplace. A massive wrought iron staircase connects the energy of the first floor with the Dining Room on the second floor. Here, guests can have a more refined dining experience, and enjoy our large, open kitchen, wine displays, two private dining rooms, additional fireside dining and views of landmarks like Copley Place, Trinity Church and the Hancock Tower. Throughout the entire restaurant, black glazed brick columns and wood slatted walls add an urban edge to the comforting atmosphere.
