Global, International | Downtown Crossing, Boston

Love coming here. The dishes are always so good (sujuk pizza, tuna, trumpet mushrooms w/cauliflower, shrimp, chicken quinoa meatballs). All so tasty. The drinks are awesome as well, love the Rose combier drink). Dessert is delicious what a great pairing of biscotti, chocolate and mint ice cream. Service was pleasant. Room is loud to have a conversation, it got better later on in the evening when people left. The music is loud & energetic. More

Steakhouse | Downtown Crossing, Boston

My husband and I truly had a great experience at Bogie’s Place. We got one of their signature cocktail drinks and the waiter/bartender came over and made them on a cart in front of our table. We got the old fashion and he smoked it and lit a flame to it. It was delicious! I had the special for an appetizer which was a potato soup which had a little kick to it and was so flavorful. My husband got the oyster which were from Duxbury and he said they were nice and sweet. Our entree was filet and a rack of lamb. Our sides were the Brussels sprouts and sauté mushrooms. The meal was delicious! Could not fit in desserts. We were completely full. Highly recommend this place. It’s truly an experience. You need reservations because it only holds about 20 people. Can’t wait to go back and take some friends with us. More

This is a newer location, the location is great, the food is fantastic as always. My issues were with the staff being attentive but inexperienced. In time this may get better. Huge issue with the bill and the tip. Not sure everyone understands the billing model utilized at this location. We almost felt tricked but a question cleared up the issue. I wish them luck! More

Love this new place! Bar Mercato is a great addition to the downtown Boston's Financial Tech /Faneuil Hall area. A place for breakfast, lunch--drinks and dinner. Or simply a place to recharge in the Hyatt Centric interactive lobby with fireplace. More

Fantastic burgers and Mac an cheese. I’m sure everything else is good too. Great beer selection. They play good music at a decent volume, not a quiet place but that’s their style and my coworkers and I love it. We have a lot of contractors from out of the country and we always bring them here.
