Eastern Standard Bar & Restaurant Review

Eastern Standard
My Opinions: I have been coming here since it opened and the Service has always been attentive and professional – the Food has made marked improvements and now ranks among the top of the list for its flavors and menu offerings, brunch, lunch and dinner – Interior is comfortable – Bar scene is great and is considered a hot spot for singles to meet other singles – the space makes for a great place for companies and groups to host events at – It's always fun to visit during the cold weather and dine outside under the heat lamps

Post 390 Restaurant & Bar Review

Post 390
My Opinions: I went shortly after its grand opening, and I think it was too soon. The bar was great! The bartenders were qualified and friendly and the crowd was professional and fun.  Then, I had dinner upstairs and it changed my mind about the place. The service was bad ... slow, uninformed about the menu, and a bit too casual for the atmosphere - Food was fine, but did not come out at the same time, which, in a party of 6, is awkward - I would go back to the bar at some point because the layout is social (reminiscent of Sonsie's) and the bar service was good.

Some Food/Drink Tasted: Crab and Spinach Dip – Oysters Grilled – Post Burger – Beer and Bacon Macaroni and Cheese
