I try to make it a point to go to the Parish Cafe when I'm in Boston. Even the 15 minute walk through the snow and slush during the winter is a small price to pay for such wonderful sandwiches! The Bistrol is my favorite. I've never been disappointed in the dozen or so times I've eaten there.

They have their chef's make personalized sandwiches which are delicious! Highly recommend! Beer battered onion rings are amazing!

I've heard complaints about long waits, so I tend to swing by here on weekend off-hours (Saturday at 9 pm or Sunday at 4) to mitigate the issue. Down to business: The sandwiches are droolworthy culinary masterpieces from Boston's top chefs, and the onion rings could make Grumpy Cat smile. Seriously, order them and then send me a fruit bouquet; they're that good. Service is ept (yes, I just made up a word); aim for the patio on nice days.

My friends and I visited the Parish Cafe location on Boylston Street on a recent trip to Boston from western New York. We had arrived at our hotel in the middle of the evening after several hours of driving and we were all very hungry. A quick search for an affordable place to eat that was near our hotel came up with this location. While the atmosphere is nothing extraordinary (but certainly not bad either), the food and drink are top notch. They have many tasty-looking sandwiches and a good selection of beer on tap and in the bottle. I had two Harpoon IPAs and the Parish Chicken Sandwich. While the applewood smoked bacon was surprisingly insignificant and the homemade pickles underwhelming, the chicken itself was great along with the roll and produce. The chipotle aioli was more-than-memorable and the homemade potato salad was outstanding. For just over ten dollars, I'd say you get much more than you money's worth with this menu item. I also tried the baked mac and cheese entree that two of my friends got. the two spoonfuls I had were delicious, creamy, cheesy goodness. Someone in my party had the Sean's Simple Meatball appetizer and seemed very satisfied with it. Another of my friends had the Steak & Blue sandwich and greatly enjoyed it. There were several other sandwiches on the menu that looked desirable. If I lived in the Boston area, I'd be going back to try them as soon as I could. Perhaps if I'm in Boston again I'll try to go to this parish location again. I'd ABSOLUTELY recommend this place to ANYONE visiting or living in downtown Boston! Great food for extremely reasonable prices in a cozy space. I'd think small children would be able to handle it too. Not sure if they accept reservations.

Great sandwiches! It is a wonderful spot for a nice summer lunch/dinner. They have outdoor seating that sits right on Boylston Street so there is great people watching. The food is wonderful and creative -- with delicious sangria to go along with the meal.

I dislike sandwiches. But somehow, I love everything that I've had at Parish. Most recently, I ventured outside my comfort zone and ordered a ham sandwich with a variety of jellys and banana bread - obviously, it was fantastic! I love that they put the chef and the inspiration on the menu. I could go here any time! They have a great patio as well.

I really don't get the hype about this place. Maybe it's because I'm usually not a sucker for sandwich places because I don't think I get the most bang for my buck. Here's what I've tried so far: Roasted Reggae Wings - Not memorable. The sauce was really messy and the tangy flavors really weren't that great for me. The Hot And Cold Chicken Salad (+) - I loved the warm sticky rice on the bottom. It added such a nice touch to the arugula and sesame-soy vinaigrette. The only thing is there was way more rice than chicken/other vegetables so I was just eating rice with the vinaigrette. Mexican Meatball Sub - So hard to eat. It was also really spicy, and the toasted baguette was hurting the sides of my mouth because the sub was so wide. I don't think I'd get this again.

Excellent service and food (especially the bread basket). Waiters were very attentive and all the food arrived in perfect time.
