I listened to the hype and dined on the patio at Hamersley's last summer for the 1st time. I found it to be ok but not great. I have since given it 5 more tries to see if it can...


We were three for dinner, we went there because of all the good reviews. It was okay. The service was fair. The waiter was very snobby and kind of chuckled at my sister for askin...

Hammersleys...The Original and Still One of The Best 3/8/2007

In earlier reviews, 5 stars were only handed to establishments that were both excellent and community oriented. I am unsure of Hammersleys outside commitments, but I ate a simply fantastic meal Sunday night. Gordon Hammersley has one of the longest tenures on the Boston restaurant scene. I believe that he started at Jason's in the 70s, going independent in the South End before it was fashionable. Fulfilling my vow to not watch the Super Bowl, I reserved a table for 2 at 7. Super Bowl is a great time to walk in a restaurant, because it is not busy....My waiter, Larry, seemed happy to be finally waiting on somebody. We started with the cod and olive tapenade pizza on crispy flatbread, which was really interesting. The signature dish at this place is chicken, which is somewhat an anomaly. When was the last chicken was the signature dish anywhere? Except maybe KFC...But it is really excellent, and I had the haddock after scoffing half my friends entree, which was also incredibly tasty. The bread pudding is maybe the best I have ever tasted. The secret, Larry informed me, is brioche, instead of bread...It is nicely balanced with raisins in a caramel sauce Service excellent, wine excellent, food fantastic......That just about covers it.... more

Best of Boston 10/11/2004

Hammersley's is my favorite Boston restaurant, the place I always had my Dad treat me to when I lived in Boston. Of course, I was living on a City Year salary those days, so don't be intimidated: the prices are very reasonable for a top of the line bistro.My mouth waters just thinking about their mushrooms and Gordon Hammersley's famous chicken. But everything is delicious. And the service and atmosphere are almost first rate. Plus, you can't beat it's location in the heart of the South End (though parking can be an issue, so plan to valet). Just a great place. more

The Meat place in town! 7/28/2004

Want a good steak or lamb this is the place to go. It's pricy but worth it. This place is always full so make reservations. more
