    This could be my new pre-Celtic game go-to place. Place was clean, the food was exceptional, and the entire staff very pleasant. Kudos to our server, Natalie. She was professional, attentive, and made our time enjoyable.

    We had a 5:15 reservation and called because we were going to be 15 minutes late with traffic. They said it was no problem and to come anyways. We were sat immediately. We ordered 2 beers and my friend wasn't sure if she would like it so the waiter brought her a sample to taste. We had Calamari first and it was the best I have ever had! Light breading and cooked perfectly! We then had 2 salads and an order of meatballs to go with it. Again, the food was amazing. The service was great. He was attentive but didn't hover or rush us. Would highly recommend this place for sure!

    We selected West End Johnnie's for dinner on the first day of a trip to Boston because it was close to our lodging. It has a sports bar atmosphere, but the food selections range from typical sports bar food to some gourmet style entrees. My husband had fish and chips and I had the pan seared salmon with beets and butternut squash. Both were delicious. Our server was friendly and efficient. All in all, we had an excellent dinner experience here. I would not hesitate to return again.

    We stopped in for a bite before headng to the Bruins game, as usual. I had salmon with beets, butternut squash, and quinoa and my hubby had fish and chips. (He saw mine and wanted it, ha) Excellent all around! Great cocktails too, pineapple rum punch was delish! Can't go wrong here with service (Melinda), she was friendly and good even though we knew she was busy! Prices are reasonable too, esp. for Boston. Then just a hop, skip, and a jump to TD Garden. Nice way to start the evening.

    We went there before a concert at the TD Garden. It was a very good choice. Short walk to the garden but even better was the food and service. The service was very quick as they sort of knew many people were going to the show. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

    1st time at this eatery. Menu limited, but food good. It’s a restaurant bar, but by 9pm it turns into a dance club with a DJ. Music was awesome place was hopping with a younger crowd.

    My family and I ate here before a Bruins game and were not disappointed (have been here before and were equally pleased). All areas - food, service, ambience - were excellent. Marvin was the ultimate of friendly, prompt and attentive; in what are the most challenging times for the restaurant industry. Well done.

    We had the nicest server - very kind and super attentive. My daughter and I enjoyed some chipotle fries and shared the arugula salad (with some steak on the side for me). Absolutely delicious! And, how can you say no to a Maine Beer Co "Lunch." Great spot before a concert at the Garden.

    The server (Danielle) was excellent and it was a very busy night (Bruins game). The food was very good and came out fast, especially the appetizers. The bourbon & whiskey selection was excellent, one of the better bars for that in Boston. I did find the menu fairly small, with limited appetizer options. Both dips came with tortilla chips and just felt a wider selection of apps would have really made this place great.
