    Service was very attentive. Great bread. Lobster popovers and oysters were a great app combo. Had the swordfish and left really satisfied. Would definitely recommend for special occasion dinner/drinks

    Most of the time, I think angel food cake is about the most boring dessert in the world. Not when it comes with a sticky-sweet halo of maple cotton candy, as it did at Towne Stove and Spirits. Read more

    The bar scene is lively and vibrant. Recommend for those who are seeking a lively and vibrant bar scene. Or for those simply seeking. A vibrant bar scene only. Or a lively bar scene only.

    Despite all the comments about bad service, everyone we encountered here was very attentive and friendly. Brunch menu is great...try the crispy malted waffle with salted caramel and rum flamed banana

    Keep it classy or come casual. "Choose-your-own-vibe" dining areas at Towne are all about comfort food + drinks but we say go for an old fashioned cocktail -vodka'd Gypsy Dancer, anyone? Read more

    Bartenders were the type that make it seem like they are doing you a favor when they take your drink order. They have Hi-Life bottles if you don't feel like waiting for a mixed drink

    Food here is amazing. Secure a reservation otherwise be subjected to a shared table at the front bar which is very loud. Oh & this place smells like a Sephora. Loud convo is ok. Loud scents are not.

    Food was excellent, but not too keen on the Old-Fashioned's Stateside. Bartenders here seem to love to muddle their faux-cherries making it too sweet and artificial tasting.

    Oh man. Lobster popovers & lobster pizza are divine. Wagyu steak is decadent. Service attentive. Hip atmosphere. Decent cocktails. Overall lovely dining experience.

    Came here for Boston Restaurant Week. Have to be honest: food was very underwhelming and overpriced. Wouldn't recommend it. However, the service was top notch and the wait staff was great.

    I feel like the food would have tasted better if we didnt wait an hour and a half for it to come out. Server was great and compd us dessert and an app but still...

    For lunch, the rotisserie chicken salad sandwich is fantastic and a good deal ($10) for Back Bay prices...lovely carrot/zucchini slaw on the side.

    The first-ever restaurant in the Hynes Convention Center. It's big (300 seats indoors, 80 on the patio), bold (with a long, globetrotting menu), & destined to draw tourists & locals alike. Read more

    Great restaurant with multiple dining areas based on what type of mood you want. The Russian spiced rib is amazing and their cocktails are great as well!

    Rude and incompetent waitstaff. Don't bother asking for a manager. She's even ruder and has no understanding of good business or client relations. Def avoid! Many better options in the area!

    Towne Stove and Spirits has been hit or miss for us, but it's a total scene, and the pedigree here -- with culinary director Lydia Shire at the helm -- makes it hard not to go back for another shot. Read more

    For summer refreshment, try the Sandia: Watermelon chunks dissolve into a light, refreshing cocktail. Read more

    Don't order the platter, it's of low price/satisfaction ratio. Loved everything else. So far my favorite restaurant in Boston!

    Terrible service, non Differentiated menu and extremely over priced. For dishes at ~$30/plate they have GOT to get their act together. Would never go back or recommend.

    Skip the noisy front bar and head straight to the top level. There's a more intimate space, with more attentive bartenders.

    Try the lobster pizza - it's one of their signature dishes! (And their white sangria comes highly recommended as well!)

    It makes no sense whatsoever that there's always a line to get into this place on the weekends. It's a restaurant not a Vegas night club.

    The cocktails are always spot on, I like the strawberry-basil limeade for a refreshing drink during the summer

    Waitresses should not stand in front of bar and have convo and look at pics on phone. Btw, I now know how one waitress' mother makes her yams. Ridiculous.

    The south end marg is so sour...way to much grapefruit soda. "The just in 'thyme' is a great drink if your having diabetic shock".

    Come for the flatbread. Margarita and bbq chicken. The peppers wrapped in prosciutto are also amazing.

    Classy, great cocktails, great food. Good selection of beers. Try the Martinis here. Best in the Back Bay

    They are very inconstant behind the bar but never horrendous. Sometimes amazing, other times average. Pricey though.

    The Apple Press is one of the best drinks on the menu! Also, try the mushroom flatbread!

    Ask Corey to recommend a wine before you order. A trained sommelier, he'll steer you right!

    Arrabiata steak was just OK. A little too much oil / grease and not enough infused heat.

    Order the Peloponnese cocktail. Metaxa, lychee syrup and ginger beer. Delicious!

    Nothing special - overpriced and over salted. Good for big parties - service doesn't get overwhelmed.

    If Monica is working at the bar, ask for her to make you a white sangria, it's incredible!

    Lobster Popovers. If for no other reason, go for lobster popovers.
