One of the best restaurants my boyfriend and I have been to. I think they change the menu every so often, but we got the pork chops with apple cole-slaw and sweet potatoes with peanuts, amazing. Drink menu was great and the house drinks

So I love cheap food more than anyone I know, and you really can't beat $2 tacos at a nice restaurant. I think this weekly special is fun, but the problem is the tacos aren't that good. I have tried every kind (even the lobster), but have never been overly impressed. This place is very hyped so I feel like all of its food should live up, even the discounted version. Also, $2 taco night never ends up being a cheap dinner because the drinks are crazy expensive and pretty small. Finally, everyone raves about the pajama brunch, which I agree is a really cute idea, but I have never loved the breakfast food either. I'm sure they have their good dishes, but I think their two most popular specials could be better.

I came here during restaurant week and every item on the menu was an option! I went with several friends and we got the great back corner table. I have gone back again since and the meal was just as good.

Very South End! They almost always have some kind of theme. Tuesdays are Taco Tuesdays, which I loved. Perfect for a casual date or time with friends as you can get several tacos and share. Brunches are pajama brunches so the staff is wearing theirs and you are more than encouraged to show up in yours. A bit overpriced, but a great experience.

Tremont 647 is amazing for brunch but the crowd/wait can be a bit ridiculous if you're just wanting a quick breakfast. The dinner there is definitely not their specialty but is good none the less. Outdoor seating makes the dinner even better. It's a good place to try but I would never be a regular here.

My boyfriend and I try to go to Tremont 647 for brunch whenever we can. We've also tried $2 Taco Tuesday which has great drinks but the food is just alright. The pyjama brunch is lots of fun - bottomless Illy coffee, extremely cool waiters and waitresses, and great food. I always get Andy's Huevos Rancheros, which I would strongly recommend, although on occasion, the rice and black beans are a little on the crunchy side. In addition, we always have a pop tart and it is always fantastic, since the pastry chef is unbelievably good. Also, if you are a regular patron sometimes you get to sample things which aren't on the menu...

i've been hanging out at tremont 647 since the end of the summer. i've gotten really friendly with the staff and theyre all great! brandon and bonnie (bartenders) honestly make some of the most delicious and wellbalanced drinks i've ever had.. everything from their amazing pineapple martini to their raspberry lime gimlet, to dirty martinis. their wine list is all organic and the bartenders are very knowledgeable. they infuse all of their own vodkas, and offer seasonal and specialty martinis created by the staff. the food is usually pretty good... brunch is definitely a high point!! while i have had some less-than-spectacular food experiences, the staff will not gladly fix whatever is wrong until you are satisfied. most recently i tried the while mushroom gnocci, and it was incredible! (which was surprising because the kitchen was about to close in 5 minutes).

overall, if you're in the south end and looking for a neighborhood hangout, this is the place to be. even as a straight chick (in a serious relationship) i love coming here because i don't have to worry about sleazy guys hitting on me!! the food is creative and interesting, and the staff can't be beat!

also, i recently found out that they recycle everything, have a compost out back, and their wine list is entirely organic! they also just launched a new vegan menu and are soon starting a late-night menu (which is great because as of now the kitchen closes at 10). they use a lot of local and grassfed meats, and buy local and sustainable!! yay!!

Pros: $2 taco tuesdays, amazing staff, house-infused vodkas, interesting cuisine, eco-friendly

Cons: slightly expensive, no parking (but they have a valet), gets really packed

We went here over the summer for the PJ brunch with another couple and our (combined) 4 toddlers. Food and service were both excellent. Our server was very attentive, and they even gave us our own private room in the back (although with 4 small kids, I can understand why!). Food really was quite delicious, and all very reasonable. We'll definitely be back.

This chic little restaurant is about one mile from the theater district, a relatively easy 15 to 20 minute walk in good weather.

The food was excellent, as was the service. I made the reservation that day and asked if we would have enough time to make our show. Not only did they remember me when I got there, but the server was very attentive which helped us stick to our time frame.

The Lobster Mac & Cheese is usually a seasonal entree but I got lucky and they had it on the menu last night. I'm not necessarily a Lobster lover --sometimes I find it a little bland-- but I had read other reviews for this signature dish and I was intrigued by the concept. It was a satisfying premium version of the classic comfort food with an ever so slightly sweet sauce that wasn't too heavy. And there was a generous amount of medium sized succulent chunks. The texture of the Lobster contrasted nicely with the al dente pasta.

I enjoyed it so much that we ordered one for our two baby sitters to share as a thank you for making a rare night out possible.

And our server was kind enough to ask the Chef Owner, Andy Husband, how long we could safely leave it in the car while we caught the show. That may explain why he dropped by our table and described how he makes it. The cheese sauce includes milk, cheddar cheese, swiss cheese and a little bit of diced red and green pepper.

It wasn't cheap, about $24.00 but unless you have a really big appetite you could probably split it with someone or take half of it home for a pleasant reminder of an amazing meal.

We also had the Pork Chili with Sweet Potatoes and Beans. I was hoping it would have been a little sweet but it was flavorful and mild with a slight kick. The Pork was very tender and it was garnished with crisp julienned tortilla.

The Blue Cheese Polenta was creamy, almost fluffy, with a subtle amount of the distinctive taste of Blue Cheese.

Overall, a great dining experience.

Two words about this restaurant: gingerbread pancakes! Seriously some of the best food that I have eaten. And starting off with Joanne's Pop Tarts makes for a sinful brunch.

Tremont 647's signature is the pajama brunch on Sunday mornings which makes for a fun outing in the mornings.

Dinner is superb, especially in the spring and summer when there is bistro seating on the sidewalk. This is a must if you are coming to the South End.

The service here is top-notch. Our reservation was messed up and we were given drinks (5) and an appetizer on the house for our trouble. The server was personable and friendly. Unfortunately, that's where it ended. The food was mediocre. The menu has no rhythm and is not descriptive enough to properly identify the food. The tuna tartar was ok, but definitely heavily salted. The special appetizer wings were flavorless and uninspired. I ordered the shrimp and scallop entree and was extremely disappointed when my plate was delivered with a strong smell of cumin emanating from it. A lot of the food was presented as southern (fried chicken & greens) and I was served an indian inspired, cumin overloaded dish, with no warning.
The server, again, was amazing and had my meal replaced within minutes and was very gracious about it. I am not one to complain, but this was one of those times. Both entrees (the one I ate and the one I didn't) were taken off the menu, which was definitely above and beyond.
The desserts were simply OK. Nothing special, nothing terrible.
I give the service at this restaurant 10 stars out of 5, but the food forces me to give it just 2 stars. It's definitely a great place for drinks, but I'd be wary about trying their food again.

I went to this place during restaurant week with my sister and one year old neice - I don't know what the reviewers above me are talking about - I had a great experience here! First of all, the service was excellent - our waitress really knew the menu & was able to make recommendations for us. Also, the staff was extremely accomodating and sweet to the baby - it made our dining experience very enjoyable. Our cocktails were tasty but also strong enough to justify ordering a drink. And, finally the food - I found everthing unique and delicious. My sister ordered the crab gnocchi appetizer, which we highly recommend. Overall, a great experience and unique interpretations of classic comfort food -

My family and I went out to dine here during restaurant week. We anticipated a great meal since we've heard a lot about the chef and the popularity of the place. This is by far the worse meal we have ever eaten in Boston. Everything we ordered from appetizers to deserts was cafeteria quality food. We will never ever come back here again. Stay away and head over to Sibling rivalry or Aquitaine.

My boyfriend and I dined here recently and I was really excited, as I had heard great things. I ordered the salmon and it was undercooked to the point that the inside was completely rare. We waited about 30 minutes for my plate to come back out after I told the waiter, and in the meantime, my boyfriend's dish got cold. Finally, the waiter brought me a new dish and this time the salmon was overcooked ( maybe the chef was overly cautious this time?) to the point where the outside was seared to a crisp. At this point my boyfriend had finished his dinner and they had taken his plate away, and he awkwardly waited for me to finish. On top of this, we waited another 30 minutes for dessert. I can understand a mistake, but am less forgiving for a bill that totals over $100. I thought at least a glass of wine would be comped for the mistake but, alas, nothing was. All of this and less than superb food left me pretty disappointed.

Readers beware, this is NOT a dog-friendly restaurant.

I found Tremont 647 on a "dog friendly" web site. I phoned first to make sure that it was OK to bring my puppy to dinner with me. I was told that dogs were welcome on the patio. Once I arrived, I waited 40 minutes to be told by the Manager that my puppy had to be tied up outside, that it was a Board of Health rule that dogs were not allowed on the patio.

Meanwhile, they have "dog brunches" on Saturdays so this was obviously a lie.

The best part? I paid $14 for valet parking, which the manager refused to refund. I was really upset. I ended up eating outdoors at another restaurant on Tremont Street, with my puppy, just two blocks away.

The wait staff apologized for the Manager's behavior. Even the valet guy felt bad. By the way, it was not a busy night.

It has been many years since I have been to Tremont 647. Before going to the restaurant tonight, I went on Citysearch and read the reviews. The majority of them are pretty negative, but I ignored them, and ate there anyways. Our food was wonderful, and the ambience of the patio dining area was exactly what we were looking for. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. So, just a note to 647 fans, show your appreciation for the restaurant you love and write positive reviews on citysearch! Thanks 647 :)

Was really looking forward to trying Tremont 647 on restaurant week, as this is how we?ve found most of our favorite Boston restaurants. We were very disappointed. The food was mediocre, the service was pretty good until dessert! Our waitress tried to clear it away twice before we were finished and had our coats ready before we even received the bill. The best part was when a server was filling water glasses on every table and the hostess physically stopped her before she could refill ours. I understand it is restaurant week and they are busy but we were less than 2 hours in a restaurant for a 3-course meal with wine and coffees. Unlike every other restaurant I have tried during restaurant weeks I will not be returning to Tremont 647.

Cons: rushed service, mediocre food

The menu was teeny tiny compared to the wine list and didn't provide too many options for entrees. The service was excellant. The food - very small portions for an outrageous price. The entrees also took forever. We ordered a med burger and a side of brocolli for dinner and it took forever. And it was obvious that kitchen was either messing up the order, burning the burger, or just taking too long to do their job. The burger ended up to be mediocre at best when it finally arrived at our table. It was charred, definitely more than well-done, even though we had asked for med, and really we could have gotten a better one (and bigger, it was much smaller than the bun) at TGIFriday's. The garlic brocolli also very tasteless for being called garlic brocolli. Really just another overally expensive restaurant in the South End with less than average results.

We went here as it was recommended in the Phantom Gourmet as having the most fun pyjama brunch. We called ahead for seating and the nice gentleman on the phone assured us there was a table. We arrived (my friends in their own pyjamas) to a friendly greeting by waiter in their pyjamas. The ambiance is comfortable. Our waitress was great and very friendly. We were disappointed to see that none of the ingredients could be changed in our scrambled eggs and their selection of toast was just sourdough bread. The food took a while, and I can't say it was worth the wait. Even with so many ingredients, the food still tasted very bland. My friends and I made good use of the ketchup we asked for to add some excitment to the food. Although the ambiance was perfect for a lazy Saturday morning and the service was friendly and relaxed, I wouldn't recommend the brunch on its food alone.

I was planning on taking a friend of mine here for dinner about a week ago, but because he was coming from out of town, he decided to City Search it before we made the jump and actually devoted and evening to this establishment. When he told me what he had read about Tremont 647, I could not believe my ears! Now I have been living and dining in the South End for years, so I knew we could not give up an amazing dinner just because a couple people had a bad meal, and oh boy was I right!

At first we were going to sit at a table, but after a couple of amazing cocktails at the bar (I had a SIDE CAR FROM HELL and my friend had a MAPLE MANHATTAN) the bartender (whos name I am now blanking) convinced us to have dinner there at the bar! And it was great! We did the 7 course chefs tasting, and it was fantastic! The bartender was very knowledgable in the food, and suggested that we talk with the chef on what we like, and did not like. Sure enough, the chef came over to engage with us, and prepared some of the best tasting food I have had in a while! After dinner, we wanted to mix it up a bit, so we had our last round of drinks in Sister Sorel next door. We could walk right through with our exsisting cocktails, and cosy up at the bar with yet another attentive and friendly bar tender to finish off our evening! What a night!

I have always been a fan of 647, but with all of the new restaurants opening, I tend to stray else where. My last experience there reminded me what a perfect neighborhood place it is, and how we always end up making friends with some one there, whether it is the staff, or the other bar folk, every one is so friendly! I have never walked into a restaurant so welcoming!

I have been going to Tremont 647 since I moved top Boston 2 years ago. I never fail to meet great people there and always have enjoyed the food. It has the best and most friendly atmosphere in the South End. You can sit at the bar or at a table and people around you just seem to strike up converation. Whether it's Saturday brunch or Thursday dinner, you can't find a cooler vice in the South End. Andy - you still ROCK!

I have been going to Tremont 647 since I moved top Boston 2 years ago. I never fail to meet great people there and always have enjoyed the food. It has the best and most friendly atmosphere in the South End. You can sit at the bar or at a table and people around you just seem to strike up converation. Whether it's Saturday brunch or Thursday dinner, you can't find a cooler vice in the South End. Andy - you still ROCK!

i have lived in the south end for many years now and go out to eat/drink quite often. both 647 and sorrel are jokes of tremont street. their food is awful, and their menu is pathetic. in terms of the bar, chris is awesome and should really go to a different place that is worthy of him. the female bartender is seriously annoying and cocky- not to mention gives bad service. for anyone visiting the south end, if you really want a good south end experience, go somewhere else.

Pros: there is not one pro

Cons: just don't waste your time or money

I was excited to try Tremont 647, but when I went yesterday for Pajama Brunch, I was very disappointed. I was with a group of 6. The brunch options sounded fantastic, but we were disappointed with the results. Some of us ordered the 647 scrambles dish. The "hash browns" needed salt and pepper and a huge dollop of ketchup to order to be eaten, it was so bland. The coffee was also too strong and not good tasting. A friend ordered the fried chicken panini, which was served on the thinnest pieces of bread ever, and it was too crunchy to enjoy. The appetizers are very good, however - try the bagel chips with salmon lox cream cheese. The mini duck rolls are a joke - they are the tinnest fried appetizer in the world. Also - this kitchen probably prepares everything in advance - another friend wanted the meatloaf panini without ketchup, but the waitress told us it was already prepared and couldn't be removed, same with the fried chicken panini which comes with an aeoli sauce, which also couldn't be removed. Finally, the waitress was the most unattentive waitress ever - we had to constantly ask for more cream for the terrible coffee, and for more drinks. She probably didn't care since the restaurant automatically added a hefty 20% gratituity to our bill! Outrageous. Never coming back here again. The best part about the experience? One of the waiters had an AWESOME jammy set - frog jammies with matching frog slippers. AWESOME.

I went to Tremont 647 a few weeks ago and the food was very good. We had a nice waitress, the service was good. I had the ribs they were really good. The mango margaritas were fantastic! I would certainly recommend trying this restaurant.

Pros: Ribs and margaritas

Cons: a little pricey for what you get

What happened to this place? The menu has gone way down hill, but the prices go up up up. The portions are so small and take hours to come out of the kitchen.

This used to be such a fun place to meet people and have some drinks/food. I'm afraid those days are over.

Perhaps someone will buy and make it great again?

My boyfriend and I came here for dinner during Restaurant Week and our experience was just average. The best thing I had that night was my appetizer, MoMos, which are tibetan dumplings. These were really tasty and would highly recommend them if you still decide to dine here after reading all these reviews. We chose the ribs for our main course which were good, but at only 3 pieces it was not worth the money. Desserts were OK, although it was not something we would've chosen if we weren't there for Restaurant Week. Our waiter was friendly, but pretty much ignored us after we received our main course. We saved about $3 by dining here during the event, but we still ended up paying a pretty hefty bill for an average dinner and dining experience.

Pros: great area, outdoor seating is nice on a cool summer day

Cons: value, parking

i have never written a restaurant review but my experience here has forced me to contribute. our large party went during restaurant week, understandably crowded and amateur's night. we waited half an hour for our drinks at the table, and between each dish the wait was another half an hour. the waiter(s) were very very nice, but the wait was untolerable. and the mediocre overrated unoriginal fusion food did not make up for the service. for a restaurant with a decent reputation for food with a price to match, the entire experience was very disappointing.

Went to Tremont 647 for the first time for dinner. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who cares about getting value for their money. The food was fine - none of my fellow diners had any complaints, but nobody was raving either. The service was so-so; our waiter was polite, but disinterested. Each of us had 1 drink (would have been more had the waiter checked in every so often!) and less than half of us had an appetizer. The bill with tip was about $50 per person. I'm definitely not going back!

I have been to this restaurant 3 times. Twice for brunch, which I HIGHLY recommend. I've had two dishes and both were awesome. Because of my experience with brunch, I decided to go for dinner. In fact, we were a group of 8. I do NOT recommend this place for dinner. Out of 8 people, only one really loved their meal. The rest of us thought everything was just okay. Also, we thought the waitress was fun and sarcastic, but I would imagine some people being offended by her. And then the bill came. It was $65 a person. Considering we did not drink a lot we thought this was outrageous. If you are going to spend that kind of money on dinner there are so many other restaurants in Boston that will provide you with decent portions and incredible meals. Go elsewhere.

I live right near tremont 647. But for the longest time I was too intimidated by the hip crowd to check it out. What was I thinking! The service was great. We were able to sit, have deserts, and some fabulous drinks. And sister sorel next door is a wicked popular little bar.

Went there for dinner and quite honestly, wasn't all that impressed. Bread was fantastic, but appetizers and dinner course were just average. Menu is tiny. Don't get me wrong the food is ok, but their prices gave me much higher expectations.

I've heard the brunch is good, so maybe I'll try that, but I won't be going back for dinner.

Even tipsiness incured by the delicious "Tremont Tang" couldn't mask the problems at Tremont 647. Having wanted to try this place fo some time, we went on Sat. night but could not be seated outside unfortunately. Luckily, the decor is wonderful, very nice. The food, albeit tasty, was a bit of a disappointment. While the calamari salad was scrumptious, the chicken was just ok. I ordered the tuna - the disappointment of the night. For $26, the unsuspecting customer gets 6 small slices of tuna on a bed of potatoes. When I inquired about the size of the costly dish, I was told that it looked small since I didn't get the potatoes. Hmm... This place is way to expensive for the portions. Too bad!

Went there recently, I had heard about this place from people and wanted to try it out (big mistake).
The food was really disappointing and the menu is so small, and on top of everything is expensive too.
I think that people in the restaurant business should know the value of the money!

Horrible! What possessed people to give this place a 9.2? I went there with my boyfriend and we started out with their supposedly great margarita. It was served in a tumbler glass and was just average. We had the cheese appetizer which was two miniscule slices of cheese, some bread, and half teaspoon portions of jam---for $12. I had the pork tenderloin which was completely plain-- served with sides of dry cabbage, sticky rice and bacon. I have never been more disappointed with a meal. I would NEVER recommend this place to anyone.

The risotto appetizer with fried oysters was wonderful and worth the high price. The mo-mo's were heavy and tough-textured. The tuna entree was good (get it rare), but the sticky rice didn't really go with it very well. Another fish entree had a strong smell but tasted OK. Apparently they do some things much better than others. I would have liked to try the desserts if not for limits on stomach capacity and budget.

My favorite brunch in all of Boston. The waiters, cooks, hostesses all dress in their jammies. Diners are welcome to wear theirs, but hardly anyone does. The brunch menu is awesome. Try the breakfast pizza--two eggs, bacon, cheese and more all on a pizza. French toast is superior. Sometimes there's a bit of a wait, but it is well worth it.
