I made a reservation for us to sit outside because of COVID. The inside of the restaurant was pretty packed, with only plexiglass separating the tables and no windows open to circulate air (Maybe they have great air filters?), so I was a bit nervous about dining here in general. The food was good, but our waiter was kind of rude and curt. I tried to be generous since working in the midst of this can’t be ideal, but it was probably one of the rudest dining experiences I’ve had in a long time. We also asked if they would turn their outdoor heaters on, since it was a pretty chilly and overcast day, but they just said they wouldn’t be doing that today. Overall, the restaurant was not super accommodating for COVID—it almost felt like they were punishing us for choosing to sit outside. The food was great, but dining experience was poor. Probably won’t be going back any time soon.
We arrived for our reservation at 8:00. We gave in our food order at 8:20. The waitress forgot to put in our food order before 8:30 and we were not served our dinner. We were then told we could order appetizers, but the waitress never came back to get our appetizer order. When she did, it was past 9:00 and we could not order appetizers. We had to ask the waitress for more drinks as she ignored our table. Overall, extremely disappointed as I have gone to cityside before and have had great service. We had guests visiting and we were not served dinner or food at a restaurant. Again, extremely disappointed and unsatisfied with the entire situation.
Classic Bostonian vibe and great food choices!
Cool, college bar atmosphere. Great beer options. Food okay but not worth returning for.
Ashley was awesome! The menu wouldn’t load on my phone so I asked her what I should drink and she had many suggestions!
very nice for game day not to loud or expensive pretty chill
Excellent food! Nachos and burgers were outstanding! Great prices!
I had a great meal at Cityside as has been my experience i. the past. Our server was responsive, friendly, and quick. The only issue was eating outside with space heaters nearby that couldn't be turned on yet for some reason. But overall I think Cityside is an underrated gem.
Perfect place for Brunch. We ate outside with all tables sufficiently separated. Food was delicious and reasonably priced and service was excellent. Highly recommend and look forward to returning.
This is good for what it is - basically sport bars environment and pub type food. We went with a party of 7, and were seated outside by our request (split into two tables due to COVID restrictions). The service was prompt and attentive. All 7 meals were good (salmon burgers, chick pea burger, fish and chips, chicken sandwich, Cobb salad). Portions were generous and food was delivered hot. Tables were comfortably distanced and restaurant was taking appropriate COVID pre-cautions. We would return here.
Great food and fun place
Great outdoor space for an easy quick early dinner. They forgot the salmon on the salad - but took care of it and didn’t charge us.., they refill your soda for free!
great spot - good food, good drink selection, plenty of outdoor space.
Great service. From welcoming to table service: perfect!
About the food: the best nachos ever! That home-made taste, great portion and very tasty! I’m VEGETARIAN, so I’m glad they have options for us in their menu, I ordered a burger but, unfortunately, the patty was super dry, and nothing to talk about the taste, just a regular dry veggie burger.
Drinks: many great options! I tried the Mule something and I love it.
The ambience is nice and cool, but I didn’t like the music volume, I think is too high, and it interfered in the conversation.
Stopped in for lunch , nachos with added buffalo chicken were delicious. Great service , fast and friendly!
We were there to watch the BC game with our daughter and her friends. It was supposed to the parents weekend at BC. I attempted three different times to buy a round of drinks for my daughter and her friends who were spread amongst two tables but somehow the waitress was unable to do that. I’m not sure why it was so difficult but she had no idea how to handle it. I was really upset to have left without being able to buy them any drinks.
Place had a bit of a vibe to watch the Boston College football game (which is incredible in these Covid times) Staff is friendly with a good beer selection.
Great food and service. The plates were a decent size. Great place to go for football Sunday!
Saw two mice running around
The waitress threw out our food before we were even done eating
Highly recommend. Food was excellent. The outside dining option was fun. The restaurant sits on a corner, so there is a lot of hustle and bustle, but they somehow how made their outside dining set up feel private. The service was excellent as well. Would definitely return.
Hadn't been to Cityside in years but thought I'd give it a go. I'd heard from a few foodie friends that the food is REALLY good. Was able to reserve outside seating via OpenTable which was GREAT! AND it's a menu covers all the bases. Rumor on the street is that they have a new chef. KUDOS!!!!
Customer Service - Excellent!!! We were a bit picky about our table's spacing and Cityside (specifically the two waitresses who served us) were so accommodating!!!! They juggled several reservations and switched our tables (twice, actually :0). Food was DEE-LISH and Nicky (Ricky?). AND I was impressed when instead of taking leftovers back to kitchen and packing up they brought packaging to the table for me to pack.
I'm poised to book the next few Sundays for brunch! Spread the word!!!
Burger is the bomb. Get it. No, seriously. Get it.
The food, the service and the ambience were impeccable. 10/10 would recommend. The burger, the pork sandwich, the Bloody Mary and then watermelon mule!
Great apps and Porch Rocker Lemonade is excellent. Nice spot for outside dining.
A lovely al fresco dinner! Good food, charming service and a relaxing respite from the challenges of 2020.
Loved sitting outside and service was great! New menu is a lot fancier than the old menu. Missed some of the bar food staples.
The food was delicious as always, and I love coming on the weekend for brunch. They have the outdoor patio down perfectly, and the service was great. 10/10 would recommend any of the brunch cocktails if you come. The adult iced coffees were awesome. Love Cityside!
Great with covid precautions and allergies
Delicious food, great service. Highly recommend Cityside Tavern!
One of my favorite local spots to go for casual dinner and drinks. The food is really good and there are a lot of different options on the menu. Drinks are also always well done and there’s always great energy with lots of people enjoying themselves and sports on the bar tv’s.
Delicious food and attentive service. We sat outside (tables were sufficiently far apart for it to feel safe), and it was a little noisy but that's to be expected from a busy intersection. Overall we really enjoyed our experience here!
It was a perfect location from our hotel and to our family who we were visiting. We ate outside.
Mile 22 burger was delicious. Rueben was all fat and terrible. Great service
Limited outdoor seating. Added an hour to our wait. Not necessarily COVID safe.
Delicious. Great service. I love my neighborhood spot!
Really nice summer options for drinks and our waitress was awesome!
Everything was just okay. Nachos were above average for bar food, the wings we’re below average. Chicken was over cooked, and the sauce adhered more to the plate than the wings itself. The sauce left an almost butter like texture on the plate, yet the wings themselves were dry. Blue cheese was watery, with no actual cheese. A nice touch would have been wet wipes with the wings, to wipe your hands, especially during Covid. Server was fine. Not the nicest pop up patio I’ve seen, but not the worst.
Food is good with a lot of menu options. Really well done drinks and great outdoor seating options
Straws would have been nice for drinks, especially in tall glasses
