Love the food and drinks 10/5/2010

I love this place! One of the few reasonable places in Boston where the food (gruyere cheese fries!) is delicious and tasty, but also the drinks are well-made. Friendly staff (they leave you alone to eat and aren't intrusive) and a chill atmosphere make this place a hidden gem in downtown crossing. more

Upscale Comfort Food 4/25/2010

Kingston Station wins major points for their cocktail list - I had both the Blueberry Collins ($11) and the Flying Dutchman were both well mixed & delicious. The Blueberry Collins is their current cocktail of the month, and it's dangerously good - super sweet & fruity; I basically couldn't tell I was drinking alcohol. I ordered the truffle fries and a side of fried macaroni and cheese; I should have known from the waiter's reaction that I didn't need to do so. The order of truffle fries came out, and I was overwhelmed by a massive plate of cheesy, truffle-y goodness. I barely made a dent, even with some help from friends. The baked mac and cheese was good, but wasn't particularly warm by the time it got to me. I also sampled a friend's mini slider; it was a well-seasoned, perfectly cooked mini burger. Yum! The decor is pretty cute - it's meant to be evocative of a train station, and it is; vintage white subway tiles definitely help to this end. The service is OK; definitely not great. Pros: Tasty Cocktails & Comfort Food Cons: $$$ more

Great for happy hour! 12/1/2009

The fries are terrific, the drink menu terrific with great prices this makes for a great after-work during the week hot spot. Pros: Great half price appz with a cozy atmosphere Cons: Can't think of any more

Great place to meet friends and eat 6/4/2009

Had a great dinner with a group of friends at Kingston Station. The long bar is a great spot to meet friends, and then head to a table to enjoy the food. The owner makes you feel welcome and comfortable without being obtrusive. Our server was on his toes all night and kept the 8 of us well fed and never without a drink in our hands. Pros: Great bar, great food more

Really awesome fries...Decent Entrees...TERRIBLE service 11/11/2008

I have been to Kingston Station twice and both times received horrible service. As someone coming from a service background I can be a little more nitpicky than most, but this was really bad. The first time I went was in May 08, the server was unattentive, leaving drinks (both alcohol and water) empty, the place was empty so we didn't understand why. The last time was unacceptable...drinks were empty, the server forgot to put our appetizers in and when we asked where they were he accused us of not ordering them, and then ignored our table the rest of the night. Not only was our server off, but the bar was a disaster. Drinks were spilled all over and the bartender was really slow. Aside from all of the service issues...the owner is really nice and apologized to our table. The food is pretty good (truffle fries are delish) and the decor is really cute and quaint. However, there are a lot of places in this city with similar menus and better service, so hopefully they can turn their service around. Pros: Good Food, Cute decor, Nice owner Cons: Lousy service, Loud for dinner more

Friggin Amazing 7/29/2008

Oh my word! I was floored with the service, food and the ambiance all together. WE went on a Saturday night for the Jazz and it was AMAZING. The jazz was awsome! It was like having a bunch of friends over to play for you in your own kitchen.. It was completely unpretentious and the prices were very reasonable. The bar does get loud later in the night, but all that said, I will definately go back and continue to recommend this place Pros: EVERYTHING!!!! Cons: Parking more

Amazing food, easy to grab a table 4/10/2008

My friend and I ate her last night and I loved the food. We ordered the truffle french fries - yummy! For my entree, I got the artichoke ravioli. The sauce was so flavorful! I can't wait to eat my leftovers tonight. Our water glasses were repeatedly re-filled and our waiter was right on top of things. I found the wine to be a great price at $6.00 a glass. I didn't find it loud at all but then again, it wasn't overly packed. We went on a Wednesday night. Check it out for yourself. Pros: The food, the quickness of getting a table Cons: I really didn't see any more

New favorite after work spot 2/17/2008

This place is totally swinging with the after work crowed.. the bar is very well stocked and the service is quick. Kingston gets a very bad wrap for noise (I don't know who goes to a bar for a quiet intimate experience..) but, if you want to avoid that just go a little after the happy hour rush - the place really starts to empty out after 7. Oh! And - great coffee. more

Fantastic Bistro 12/15/2007

I had a good vibe from the beginning as a patron who was leaving as my fiancee and I were arriving said, ""You're going to love it"". I was a little nervous after reading reviews about the noise level and ambiance, but it seems like the management read those things and corrected any issues. The ambiance in the rear dinning room was very cozy/romantic with low light being accented by candles and white christmas lights on the ""big wheel"". As for the noise, although the place was not packed, the ambient music was at a good level and the abundance of tile didn't seem to be a problem. Pros: Food, drinks, service Cons: Moderately pricey more

Great drinks and apps, but very loud (fair warning) 11/9/2007

We've been here twice now. The first was for dinner before a concert, and we had the back dining room almost to ourselves. The food was delicious (the truffle frites are a must), and the drinks are equally good. I love the ""Partly Cloudy""--anejo rum and ginger beer garnished with lots of fresh ginger. The service was excellent and we like the decor (see below however). more

Perfect Nine 10/2/2007

The only additional thing that would make this restaurant a perfect ten would be to dim the lighting for ambiance. That is my only criticism out of everything else: food, service, drinks, were awesome. The decor is majorily white with mirrors and shiny subway tiles (which is very unique), however this reflects and enhances the overhanging lights, wall lights and bar shelf lights. Dimming all of these, eliminating some, or accenting with a deeper color (i.e. red) would make a world of a difference. more

Fantastic food, nice decor - huge improvement on Peking Tom! 9/29/2007

Saw that this place was now open so tried it for dinner last night. I was surprised to find how refreshingly different this place is from the old Peking Tom that was here, which was kind of dingy and served bad American Chinese food. The decor was nice, lots of little touches to give it a nice vintage feel. There's a huge bar and a big dinner area around the back, though we ate in cafe area at the front. Had tuna tartar and truffle frites for apps, both of which were amazing. I had the pork chop for dinner, which was a nice big portion and was delicious. My friend had the steak frites which he was raved about. I was too stuffed for dessert but they sounded great so will make a point of trying one next time! more

Great Place for Dinner 9/27/2007

We went for dinner. The space is almost like being in a fancy, old fashion train station with beautiful tiling. The food was really good...I am still thinking about the steak frites that I had. We are definitely going back to try their late night menu. Pros: Ambience, Food more
