    2015 Best Sommelier: Colleen Hein: "… Hein has a hands-on approach to demystifying wine, and a crack team of servers she educates through blind tastings and regular premeal briefings."

    Neat place for some good wine and food during the day or night. Comfortable atmosphere, almost feels like you're in Great Gatsby. Oysters are amazing. But definitely go for the VEAL!

    If you book a private dining room, be warned that it's only semi-private. Other guests share the room. But get the carrot cake with fruit spread. HUGE and delicious

    Eastern Standard is out of this world. While the plates are a little pricey for brunch, it's a nice splurge every once in a while. I often go for the cheddar omelette or the French toast.

    Alas, i went during off-hours with a short snacks menu. Had tomato soup & grilled cheese sandwich. Soup was good, grilled cheese was tasteless. Service was attentive though

    Show up around midnight to see what's become a nightly ritual-a bartender climbs up on the bar to physically write that evening's late-night menu special on the massive glass mirror behind the bar. Read more

    My cocktail was a special from the server - uh-mazing! The bread pudding dessert has apparently been on the menu for the past 9 years & for good reason...It's soft & scrumptious w/ a crisp top - yes!

    Staff here is the best in Boston. Oysters are always fresh, food is always delicious and service is always impeccable. Their cocktail menu is extensive, as is their wine list. ESDK is always my go-to.

    Eastern Standard makes some fine classic fare such as steak frites and veal schnitzel. But it also offers very American dishes like hamburgers, making this a brasserie for us all. Read more

    It's reasonably priced, its menu encompasses dishes like offal (really pates and terrine rather than anything risky) and veal schnitzel to grilled cheese sandwiches and cheeseburgers. Read more
