    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

    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.

    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.

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

    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

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

    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 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

    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

    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

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

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

    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.

    10 Dollar ShakeJanuary 2, 2012
    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.

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

    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

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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
