    I usually come here for brunch or lunch. Food is very good but not out of this world. Get the Back Bay sangria! It seriously *is* the best in Boston.

    Buffalo wings are nice but not spicy enough. Kids meal - pasta is ordinary. Lobster roll - expensive, roll is buttery and ice but lobster too much sauce added.
