The short, brute female bartender working around 5 pm on July 30 was one of the most aggressive and racist women I've ever encountered. We sat quietly at the end of the bar with my cousin who was visiting from overseas for about 3 hours after a big lunch and a walk around Fenway Park. Boston was supposed to represent what America stands for, instead this woman saw fit to stop serving us because we did not want to order food exposing the ugly truth of Boston. When my cousin asked why she wouldn't serve us without ordering (very politely because he was genuinely curious about this custom) she started 3-4 sentences extremely aggressively with "in this country...", each time getting closer to his face as if to intimidate him. Her disgruntled demeanor and clear self-loathing made us decide to leave right away. That disgusting behavior will never be an acceptable representation of what this country is. Her loss, and the restaurants, we are extremely wealthy and had money to spend. Unfortunately for her, we also planned to meet our whole families there an hour later-- we took our business elsewhere. I've never been more embarrassed to be an American.

I have been a long time fan of this roof deck but I now have such an appreciation for their food. I officially indulged in their nachos with chicken not once but twice this weekend. Just so good. All of the food is so colorful and fresh and beautifully garnished. Everything I have seen coming out of their kitchen just looks and tastes so damn good.

good beer and really good fish tacos. location is great ambiance is sort of meh. the weird part is that we were greeted by a bouncer at 6 p.m. on a Sunday evening and we had a 19 year old in our group. is this place a restaurant or a strip club?

poe's spin's on the classics make this restaurant a must taste. duck tacos and three cheese grilled cheese sandwichs make your taste buds jump.

This is a hidden roof deck bar restaurant located in Boston's haute couture Back Bay. Yet, it looks unfinished, like a college dorm room. DECOR: The red walls of the roof deck got painted... and they were finished decorating...DONE. FOOD: It appeared over-priced for simple Mexican food. IE $15 for 3 small, bland fish tacos. NOTE: We chose to take the waitress up on her offer to keep the SUPER hot peppers on the side. So, our choices are too hot...or totally bland? THE HIGHLIGHT: Try the thick, moist homemade cornbread. THE DEAL: If you want to hide your date from your wife, you can dine in secrecy on this hidden the roof top deck!

While my brother was visiting for a Red Sox double-header, we stopped in here between games. The roof deck was pretty nice, though there is no view beyond the few surrounding buildings which are much taller. Our waitress was pleasant and timely, no complaints there. But the food was terrible, especially for the price. A pre-fab frozen hamburger patty and lukewarm coffee highlighted my meal, my brother had nothing good to say about his. I've had better meals at Burger King, and I hate "fast food". Poe MIGHT have something decent to offer if you want to spend $50+ per plate, but otherwise go elsewhere.

Really enjoy dining on the roofdeck. Great view from atop. Very busy today with RedSox parade. The reason why service was a bit slow. Otherwise things were great. Great food and drinks selection, the main reason to come. Really enjoyed everything that's why I gave it a 5 star.

Try the Mexican Monte Cristo, one of my favorite sandwiches! As said by other reviewers, it's a bit dim on the inside, but the roof deck is nice, almost feels like a secret hangout spot (except that someone leaked the secret and everyone showed up). Service was decent.
