Precinct Kitchen + Bar Ratings and Reviews
Went to Precinct for my girlfriends birthday. Everything was perfect top to bottom. Made a reservation for 2 on OpenTable and we were even seated 5 minutes early at a table originally set for 4! Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was amazing! We loved the salmon tartare and prosciutto wrapped dates. The coffee rubbed venison was cooked PERFECTLY. As for cocktails, their Old Fashioned was amazing. Their Food & Beverage Manager, Matt, even came over to check on everything and wish my girlfriend a Happy Birthday. We will definitely be back!
The music was good, but WAY TOO loud for dinner guests. Should have faced the amp to the bar people. Hard to have conversation.
While the veal entree was very good, and different, the chicken (although free range which I appreciate) was dry, and there was nothing special or interesting about it. I'm told the "lobster roll" was okay. I don't remember the 4th dish.
The desserts, both the chocolate mousse and the parfait were pretty disappointint.
Sorry. But you asked. Definitely not worth the price. And we go out a lot!!
We are visiting Boston from out of town and found this place on yelp. I didn't realize at first that it was part of a hotel. I loved the atmosphere, it was cozy and romantic. The food was also very good, big portion sizes. My boyfriend and I split the Caesar salad and they brought it out in 2 separate bowls and were big enough that I didn't feel like we split the salad. I ordered the salmon and it was perfectly cooked. The cocktails were great too. I would definitely return here if I came back to Boston.
This is now our favorite restaurant in Boston. It is particularly fabulous if you have a gluten allergy. Manager Matt Sentas is very allergy aware and now only uses GF flour in the kitchen, so those with a gluten allergy can eat everything from clam chowder to fried calamari to beignets! The entrees are excellent. We recently had the venison and the scallops and the preparations were very flavorful. A perfect spot if you are going to the Lyric Theater. The restaurant is in a hotel so serves all meals.
It is evident that Precinct has a strong focus on both excellent food and service. I was on the search for a great lobster roll and the Precinct's is one of the best I've had in three years of visits to Boston. Add one of their Bloody Mary's....will not disappoint. One of the best meals we had during our Boston visit!
Awful service and food. 5:30 reservation, only 2 tables seated when we were sat.
Confused as to who our server was - had 3 different males talking to us and talking orders.
25 minutes for first appetizers, oysters came out poorly shucked with bellies punctured, showed to person who delivered the food, indicated would get server, server never came. Ordered cheese plate, bread was cold and soaked in oil, blue cheese was just rind, showed to server and no response, walked from table, did come back with warm bread. Venison entrée ordered med-rare, came out well done, showed to server and again just walked away. Someone else came and took plates, entrée not touched, did not say anything. Server came back 20 min later and we asked for check as running late. Check had no comps - asked server about the Venison and he indicated could ask a manager. Never say or spoke to manager, after waiting another server grabbed check and ran credit card - never saw our server again.
Only good thing was wine selection. Total bill $199, left note on back of receipt with limited tip. Was there 2 hours.
Biggest complaint was that we were seated in middle of restaurant with clear view of the kitchen service bar. 2 chefs in white jackets at the bar, one was eating the entire time - eating nachos and talking to staff, handling food.
A group of my friends and I chose this place for dinner before going out on the town for the night. Our reservation was for 815 and we were sat within 15 minutes, which was fine. However, once we ordered our food it took about an hour if not longer to get our food. Our food was alright, 3 of us got a burger, none of them were cooked correctly. Two of my other friends got the mussel appetizer and scallop entree. I found our server to be extremely rude and unprofessional. Additionally, we asked for our bill and over half an hour by and it was never brought over. One of my friends went to find the server and he was outright rude to her asking "what do you want". Once again we asked for the bill, still nothing. For a second time my friend had to get up out of her seat to find him. And when she did he seemed annoyed and with force handed her our bill. We didn't leave the restaurant until 11:15 and at that point, our evening was ruined. I will never go back to this restaurant because of my experience, nor will my friends, nor will be recommending it to anyone else.
Everything was good. The food, the service and the restaurant. I just wished that the restaurant was more prominently signed. When you enter you wank into a vibrant bar scene but we were there for dinner reservations. We kind of wandered around some until we found an employee available to direct us to the restaurant portion of overall facility.
Overall, we were happy with everything when we sat down for dinner. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Well prepared food, made to order. Special requests, no problem.
I was impressed that they would substitute sides, and really work to create the perfect meal to suit our taste.
I enjoyed the fresh spring cod, served with my favs, mashed potatoes and carrots. My boyfriend got the meal he wanted too, which entailed a lot of explanations on what was what, and a patient waiter!
We are here after a show. Had a reservation so we were seated right away. Place filled up fast so a reservationnis definitely recommended. Good selection of food with a little twist. Easy walking from theater district so no need to move your car. Good for for a moderate price.
Food was so good, portions were perfect. We got the combo charcuterie & cheese board which was excellent. Red sangria was yummy. Short rib was amazing. Service was poor. Had to wait a solid 15min just to see someone that could seat us even though we were on time for our reservation. Service was extremely slow.
This was our second meal at Precinct Kitchen + Bar. The restaurant has a very warm, inviting ambiance and the service is good. However, the quality of the food was uneven. My husband's steak was excellent, as were the crisp, flavorful fries that accompanied it. But the bread, while good, was cold. My soup and salad were just okay. And our friend's venison, while very flavorful, was very tough. On our last visit, the food was better. I'm not sure whether the chef had an off night or whether the quality is simply not consistent from dish to dish.
This was my first time here. Everything about it was wonderful. The food was great, service was remarkable and it is a very nice setting. We mentioned one of us was celebrating a birthday and they brought us a fantastic chocolate dessert - on the house. Will definitely be back.
