Just average food.
Dinner before show in their music venue.
Great food and great experience. Having dinner before a show lets you skip the line to enter music venue. We were escorted from the restaurant right to music venue, bypassing growing line down the sidewalk!
The place was gross like an old night club venue but with the lights turned on! We waited 1 hour for our order, there was only one other party in dining room. We could see the kitchen staff kind of milling around in the kitchen doing almost nothing. The food was almost inedible disgusting!!! And in the middle of all this the band down on the first floor started to play or practice...not a pretty site!! Don’t go!!
The service was good, the drinks were good, but the food was bland and unappetizing. I ordered the veggie burger and my partner had the Nashville hot chicken sandwich.
Fabulous heated outdoor patio seating. Food delicious. Good bar menu. Service was friendly and efficient. A great experience.
Lousy service, food was pretty good.
The bone marrow burger is fantastic!
wish the music was better. also the feel is not as cozy and warm as i hoped. the outoor patio is amazing but it was too cold there. inside was pretty gloomy needed a candle or something
The Steak Frites were cooked well, but sliced improperly with the grain. Wife had 1/2 chicken and said it was tasty. Pricing is a bit high for the value, especially for portion size. I left still hungry and am a 145 lb thin dude.
Brisket sandwich was excellent. Greens with it was fresh, lightly dressed, pleasant combo. My husband didn't love his bone marrow burger, thought it had an odd taste. ? related to the marrow or something else but he didn't say anything so that is not fair criticism. Overall good!
Before theatre at ART
We ate upstairs inside. The decor is a combination of leather/wood and industrial touches. I was very happy with the beer menu, though they were out of my first choice. The dinner menu was small but varied. And three interesting specials were offered. My vegan nachos were tasty and surprisingly hearty. The coffee ice cream was delicious. Our server was friendly and professional. Everything came out of the kitchen in the expected time. I would definitely go back.
We went to the Sinclair prior to going to the Hold Steady show. Food was very good with some interesting options. Beer list was good as well. We sat outside on the upstairs terrace and we will be going back
Thanks to server Julian!
Rooftop brunch was very relaxed. The wait staff were great. There were a variety of dishes and all of them were good!
The sinclair is my favorite spot! Love sitting on the patio, ordering a few apps and drinks with friends and enjoying a summer boston night. The service is always wonderful and the drink list is great
Food is pretty bad but the porch is nice!
They were out of one item (it was only 7:00), told us only after we tried to order. The salad was uninspired (greens and tomatoes sole ingredients) and the garlic appetizers were unappetizing. The best part of the experience was the rooftop seating. The staff was pleasant enough, but that cannot compensate for a lackluster menu.
Everything was fine, basic bar food that missed the mark just a little bit. We sat outside on the roof deck and unfortunately there was a mouse (or a few) running around under our feet the whole time. Took away our appetite. We let the server know and she apologized but don’t think she or any restaurant staff planned to do anything about it
surprised by the quality and presentation of the food for a performance venue. very high-end foodie in options, ingredients, preparation and presentation when I expected only good bar bites. excellent!
Not much to tell. Kitchen was backed up but even each round of drinks took an hour to get to the table. Some food was refunded so that was gracious, but it seemed odd to be that backed up on a Wednesday evening. Might try again.
It was great, but $24 for 5 or 6 pieces of gnocchi is crazy. That portion should have been an appetizer. I left quite hungry.
I’ll go back again but I only got about 7 gnocchis for $23. Really didn’t get enough to fill you up. The opposite of other places that give way too much pasta. The sauce was tasty
It was great. The staff was super accommodating and awesome. The food was excellent.
Creative and delicious food, friendly staff and efficient service. Perfect pre-show meal or any time meal, really. Kid-friendly, relaxed, hip atmosphere.
Fun place to go before a show. Gnocchi was house made and very light and delicious.
Food is awful
ONE OF THE BEST VENUES TO SEE LIVE MUSIC IN BOSTON!
We went to the restaurant before a show- it was really pleasant, the food was good, and our server Peter was personable and helpful.
Wonderful to sit outside on the upper level patio. The sangria was cold and full-bodies, and the food was tasty. We especially loved the falafel appetizer and short rib tacos--just right for sharing. Service was attentive--just the right amount of checking in and refilling drinks as requested. We will return!
We had a very good meal before going to the theater. It was our first time and we enjoyed the meal and sitting outside.
The food wasn’t that great. My order of wings were under cooked even though I requested extra crispy. Then the bacon on the burger tasted like it was warmed up in the microwave and very plastically. The fries were delicious and the Brussels sprouts amazing. Overall it’s unlikely we would return.
Underwhelming brunch food, cocktails, seating, & rooftop. This is an overhyped venue.
Good food choices, friendly service, would go again
Saw a show but was very impressed with the quality of food! It took a long time but worth it!
Most people associate this venue with live music; we went there for brunch and it was a pleasant and well-structured experience. the menu was lively and interesting - there were a number of things that appealed to non-meat eaters and a number of clever takes on traditional breakfasts. The room upstairs is probably loud when full, becuase there lots of hard surfaces, but for a Sunday afternoon, it was very nice. Service was smart and attentive; food made to order almost before your eyes. Very nice experience.
Great place to eat before a show! The outside patio is beautiful, when the weather is good.
The food was remarkably bad. We are all vegetarians, and the only meal anybody ordered that was any good had bacon in it so we couldn't eat it (after specifying that the bacon could and would be taken out). The menu listed an app as "pickles" but it was unfamiliar pickled vegetables. Our waiter talked to us about smoking weed a few times, was very flustered, and made some mistakes with our bill. The cocktails all came out at different times. It's a nice enough place but I wouldn't order food there again.
We made reservations at the Sinclair because we were going to a concert later that evening. What a pleasant surprise. Menu was limited but quite interesting. Food was extremely well-prepared. We will definitely be back.
