The manager Noel on duty August 7th was rude. The place was empty at 5:00 and we asked for a particular table for our small party and he said no we could not have it because of 'reservations'. We sat were he placed us. The entire hour we were there, only one other mother and child came in and he put them were we asked to be seated. Yes we did ask her is she had reservations and of course she said no.

I tipped the waitress well as it was not her fault, she cannot control who the owners put as manager.

I did have words with him after the dinner and he was just as rude and arrogant. I told him that what he did was not right because others may take his juvenile behavior out on the waitress staff. Of course, it was never his fault and when we confronted him about lying he had no comment.

I am sure he won't be there long.

I have been going here since they first opened and still will. Its a shame one poor choice of a manager can have a big impact on business.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I met with the team present that evening and have their accounts of what happened. We regret that your preferred table was unavailable at the time you chose. Floor plans ensure we can accommodate our reservations and the walk-in parties we expect. In the future, you will find the same gracious staff here to serve you. We will insist, however, that our guests behave in a manner respectful of the restaurant staff at their service. Regards,

We enjoyed brunch here on Sunday. Food was very good and service was fried and attentive. Like that they serve bottles of prosecco for mimosa’s! Will be back.

Celebrated a birthday brunch for my friends 39th. For two old hags sitting in a restaurant-they were more than accommodating, very sweet, and even helped me celebrate with a very thoughtful surprise dessert. It doesn’t take much when you’re older, but local 149 went above and beyond to
Make the day special.

Our food was amazing. Everything we ordered exceeded expectations. Highly recommend the brussel spouts app & the mushroom ravioli entree. Beer selection is extensive and the server was very knowledgeable about everything. One of the best spots in Southie to get dinner.

The restaurant was awesome, trendy and the music was so good. The food was amazing but the waitress SUCKED. We waited 25 mins before anyone came to our table to take a drink order.

When we sat down the side plates were dirty and the cups where filthy. When she finally came over she proceeded to tell us how slammed she was and that she agreed the plates are dirty but the cups are fine! I was shocked! We Placed our drink orders,a app and asked for water. Drinks came another 15 mins after that so we had been sitting there 40mins without a drink, the app came we still had no clean slide plates.

We finished our app and she still had not come over to check on us and we had not ordered our main. Finally she came over and we ordered our main, she left afdter taking our order leaving our dirty plate on the table and we had to got to the BAR to order our own drinks.

meals came out awesome! so good. we had finished our main meals when she came over i asked for the bill. Took her mins to come back with it we where there for over two hours simple because we where waiting in the waitress. we had one app and two main food came out so QUICK but service was SLOW!!

Great neighborhood restaurant. They have enough tv's that you can see from almost any table so it is a great place to watch a game. The food is also great, I especially recommend the apps!
