So came here for a special birthday , table behind us were celebrating, I'm all for fun but the language was foul and the volume deafening. The server apologised a number of times to us but the management failed to deal with the situation. The...More

My wife's birthday was ruined by the volume level from the party at the adjacent table. There were around 11 of them versus 2 of us. Despite the obvious discomfort of all other guests in the room the situation was not addressed despite clearly making...More

Building where stakehouse is, was magnificent. Whole experience was in general just ok. We were business group of 12. Something was missing in the taste of meat. After going through several steakhouses in the neighborhood in my opinion it is not worth the money. I...More

A must go to in Boston! Incredible service and staff. The bartender and staff went above and beyond!! The front desk staff could use some work.

Perhaps my expectations were too high, but given the location, beautiful building and pageantry I expected "WOW" and got "nice" instead. The very rare cowboy ribeye was almost medium rare (probably because of the hot plate) and the sides were underwhelming but all in all,...More

Great historical location. Service ok, but not fantastic. The first steak was completely overcooked. The second attempt however was cooked to perfection. Overall a good restaurant but not excellent, which I would be expecting when the check exceeds 300 dollars for two persons.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
