    After reading, so many good reviews, I was excited to go here. The interior has a lot of potential… Sadly, the food and drink did not live up to any of the online reviews. The food was marginal, at best. My husband ordered two things on the menu, octopus and green beans. They looked good from the description and they showed up FRIED. No mention of that on the menu in the description. We both ended up getting salads, which were drowned in dressing and too sweet. My drink barely had any alcohol in it and we quickly left. Do not waste time or money here.

    Cocktails were decent, ambience and vibe excellent and the service was great! The food was average though - truffle parm fries lacked salt, the buffalo cauliflower was very sour and the basic margarita flatbread had barely any sign of fresh basil.

    It was our first visit and everything was fantastic, the staff and service was excellent. The menu was exactly what we were looking for.. We started with the cleanest fresh oysters and grilled cauliflower. Then had a flat bread pizza and the pork chop which was perfectly cooked. Will definitely be back, next time will probably be for the brunch. We had a bottle of Liberty School Cabernet which is one of our all time favors cabernets at a great price do e ordered a second 🤭🍷🍷

    Food was really good! We went to the bar in the back after which was also a really cool vibe-not really much of a speakeasy, but very fun regardless! I felt like service was a tad bit slow, but it was a really nice night out!

    Kevin was our server again! We had him last October and he remembered us. He is an amazing server with excellent customer service. The food was absolutely delicious as always, and the cocktail was ridiculously good. Carrie Nation is my favorite restaurant in Boston. I will go nowhere else besides here.

    We both enjoyed the wild rice bowl with grilled salmon, roasted beets, arugula, grape tomatoes and chick peas. Excellent value and well prepared. The cocktails were ample and expertly done. Eddie, the bartender, is yet another reason to try Carrie Nation: he was friendly, attentive and great to talk with.

    Hostess and greeters were awesome! So energetic and friendly! One had an awesome accent and just moved to Boston. So bubbly and fun! (Speakeasy)Drinks were okay, bar staff was very unfriendly and seemed annoyed by everything. Unsure if it was the heat or just the atmosphere but most likely won’t be returning. Reviews were awesome and we read some before going. We found CN in an article of one of the bars you HAVE to visit when in Boston. Was a total disappointment. Left early and found a different bar.

    Unique atmosphere, great accommodating and attentive staff. Only bad thing was their avocado BLT, called BALT. The bacon was shoe-leather tough and could not be chewed. Otherwise, a good experience. A little ridiculous that they require a credit card to make a reservation, especially for lunch - but must be they've been burned by cancellation reservations often.

    My group and I visited Carrie Nation for a 21st birthday party with high hopes, but we were disappointed :(. Our server was rushed, the drinks were weak, and the atmosphere was quiet and lacking on a Friday night. The brussel sprout appetizer came out pretty close to raw, and I do not like to send food back but they were too firm to eat. The server was kind and brought back another but they were still way undercooked which was a bummer. My group and I weren’t sure if it was just an off night, but for the money we payed, we just felt the experience was extremely underwhelming unfortunately.

    When I got there. They were closing despite what the website or google had said. When I made my reservation it required my credit card in case there was a cancellation. Completely unacceptable and a waste of my time.

    Except for some beautiful period lighting the space is all dark wood and rather depressing. The food was unexceptional. My steak was on the small side but cooked as requested. Asked the waiter if I could substitute “hand cut fries” for “shoestring fries” (as described on the menu) and he said they were the same. What? The waiter seemed rushed, nervous, inexperienced and lacking any patience or friendliness. Hostess very pleasant.

    I was expecting something more underground, more unique. This was another crowded overpriced millennial bar. The server was wonderful but stretched too thin. Drinks took forever. Martini was tiny and room temp. It was loud - could not hear each other. Cool room decor but otherwise- not worth the $100 per person price tag.

    The place was clearly short-staffed, like many places, so service was very slow and we ended up going to the bar to get our own drinks before we got the chance to order dinner. Cocktail selection was quite small, and we weren't too keen on the ones we tried. Food was mostly pretty good.
