We made reservation for the After 8 special promotion and it turns out that is not applicable on special occasions or holidays... NOWHERE on the website does it state the exclusions. It would be better if its clearly stated om website to avoid any confusions for guests

Can't say enough about this place! This was our first time here, since they closed the castle. Luckily, Luis Sanabria, his amazing service, his tasty Manhattans and the great tasting food went along with the move.

We appreciate your patronage and loyalty to us after the closing of our castle. Luckily Luis made it over here afterwards so he can make those Manhattans for you. Thank you for the review and we will pass along your compliments to Luis. Cheers! Chris Bovio, Manager

Our waiter Jordan was awesome and went out of his way to make us feel taken care of. Made our experience all the more enjoyable beyond just the amazing Tomahawk wagyu steak! This was our second time being attended to by Jordan and he was all the more gracious and hospitable.

Thank you Jordan!

This is a top quality steakhouse. The Wagyu tenderloin was the most tender and flavorful steak I have ever had. The crispy roasted potatoes were delicious. The service was exceptional. Our waiter, Noah, deserves sincere praise for his attentiveness and friendly service. Ambiance is upscale but comfortable. Patrons were dressed both in business dress and casual tourist attire. Two thumbs up.

It was our 45th anniversary and we decided to go to Smith & Wollensky for a long lunch and some wine. Turns out the food and wine were excellent! To make things even better , our server Nathan was top notch. He also gave each of us a glass of champagne but an assortment of desserts at the end . What a great anniversary!

The food and atmosphere was great, very inviting and classy. Our waiter seemed to be quite busy though, and was running from table to table, so it was a while before we received our menus to order from the After 8 menu. The food made up for it! It was absolutely fantastic. Our waiter, Josh, was very knowledgeable about different wines and whiskeys and what paired well with what. I just wish he hadn't been so busy : ) He was very accommodating, and I would recommend to anyone.

My sons 21st birthday while he was in port from his navy ship - well it wasn’t great. Service was horrible - we sat outside because it’s on the water. Yeah u can’t see it! Food was “ok” but $260 later for three of us was way too much for all the inconvenience. I’ve dined there before and won’t again

No one was there to seat us when we arrived. Dinner was slow to come out - they apologized a few times, but didn’t do anything about it. Food wasn’t great - lacked flavor and interest. I wouldn’t go back... and this is without even bringing the high prices into that decision.

Very disappointed with this place after eating at other comparable places this weekend. We sat for over 45 minutes waiting for our food which came out cold. The hot plate the nobody can touch at other places the server was handing by hand. The medium steak was well done, no juices at all, and they weren't really even admitting that. My salmon was lukewarm, so it had just been sitting around. Hardly anyone was there and people weren't paying attention to us or the food. We missed a movie because of it. They didn't charge us for the steak and the dessert to their credit, but it shouldn't have happened at a place like this.

This is the only steak place in Boston (I've been to all the top ones) that understands how to do a rib-eye "rare". A nice red center, but not cold. My son's could have sttod additional searing, but it was quickly corrected. The mushroom/onion side was out-of-this-world, as were the FF. "Gigantic Chocolate Cake" with a side of vanilla, and you're fully satisfied.

Had a great evening and dinner. Went there to celebrate our anniversary and my wife and I decided on the After 8 Wine Meal special. We went on a Sunday night, so the special was available all day and well worth it. Had 4 different wines during the different meal courses. Appetizers we chose were great, especially the tuna. Both of our filets were done perfectly and delicious and had plenty of the side dish. Waitress was friendly and attentive and knew what she was doing. Could not have asked for a better dinner and service. All the staff were very cordial. The set price and menu choices for the wine special were excellent and a great idea. I would urge anyone to try it out.

Went here for a birthday celebration (which was noted in the reservation) but no mention from the host or waiter. Also checked off when making the reservation that we wanted their After Eight special menu but weren’t given it when we were seated. We had to ask the waiter for it. The food came out timely after ordering and was good, but the waiter never checked on us during the main course. With the after eight menu, we were supposed to get 4 glasses of wine throughout the night - we didn’t have any for the main course and the waiter was nowhere to be found. We had to ask for the wine when he came back to collect our empty plates. Then he was going to bring the bill without ever giving us the 4th glass of wine. Same scenario with the table next to us who also seemed dissatisfied. The food here was very good, but the service left much to be desired.

With so many high-end steak houses in Boston, it's surprising S very little meat. And the sorbet they served us tasted worse than shaved ice from a truck by the beach.
