Boston Pizza offers a casual dining atmosphere with over 100 menu items including a selection of pizzas, pastas and a wide variety of appetizers, meal-sized salads, entrees and desserts. The restaurant also has plenty of big screen TVs to catch the big game.
We rarely eat at Boston Pizza, as it is usually a less than appealing experience, inexperienced servers / staff, mediocre at best food and constant screwups with orders. This visit wasn't much different. We only decided to dine here because we were hungry and the our first choice restaurant had an hour and a half wait. We ended up waiting about 30 minutes, service was very average, my fiance ordered the baked lasagna ( a bunch of ruffled noodles stuffed in a bowl with tomato sauce and smothered with grotesque amounts of mozzerella cheese.....certaintly not lasagna) I ordered a Tuscan Pasta special and received a pizza?!! Not sure what happened there? So ended up waiting about 20 more minutes to receive the correct dish....Overall....not good, I certaintly don't reccomend Boston Pizza for more than grabbing a martini, an appy and watching a game.....personally I'm not even sure we'll return to do that!
Boston Pizza is a good choice if you're looking for your basic somewhat homestyle meals that's not anything too outstanding, but better than running out and grabbing some fast food. The service has always been alright, efficient and polite but not overly personal. I really enjoy the decoration of the place, the signs and jerseys make for a very nice, very comfortable feel. It's always clean, and the food is always good, but it's never been anything special for me.
Jim Treliving of Dragon's Den infamy has really got a solid operation going here. They are continually upgrading their menu it seems, and every time they do, I am impressed by fantastic new dishes they concoct. Just a solid, solid business model. Their pizza of course compares favorably with any other, is head-and-shoulders better than Panago, and even a little better than Ocean Park Pizza, which is no slouch at all. Boston Pizza is never a bad choice if you crave cheese, tomato sauce, or chocolate. Yes, they have some pretty decent desserts there now, including an apoplectic chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream. Mmm mmm mmm.
I can not believe people call this food. Everything on the menu is processed, especially the meat, it is ground up meat with who knows what. The sauces taste premade from a jar, not freshly cooked. The best thing is probably the pizza, but the cheese tasted so bland too, not sure what they are using. And the prices went up, it is not cheap, I would expect homemade food for the price tag. This is not real food and it is so sad the most of the population is so used to processed crap they don't notice...
A while ago we were being treated to commercial showing this chain as some kind of a cool vibe sports bar slash modern family restaurant. Well, half of one part of that is true. I couldn't eat my food or bring myself to order a drink because of the little kids using the restaurant as their playground.
Mom and dad sure looked please, but it might have been because they had sent off their kids to disturb other patrons while they ate their dinner. I mean, if I want to hear kids I would go to some joint like Chucky Cheese's. And do they really expect me to order wine? like seriously? Next date: an adult restaurant like Cactus or Moxie's. The pizza isn't even special enough to warrant coming for the food.
Amazing, sitting here and the food I got to taste was bland. To top it off no forks/ napkins had to hunt for them myself. Saw the manager walk by like 6 times never checked up on me. Yes I have a child but I COULD have been a regular: considering I eat out with my son 2 times a day cause it's cheaper then making one meal at home. Bad service and no wifi for a family restaurant. Won't be visiting again.
They're all pretty much the same. Of all the Boston Pizzas I've been to, this is definitely one of them. It's not bad, it's not great. As Bert says"It is what it is. We had a staff party there near Christmas and the service, while not overly friendly, was efficient.
My night at Boston Pizza on 152nd Street was a night to cherish. The food was great and the service was all smiles. I have not much to say except to recommend this restaraunt with much appeal. The only drawback to this venue is the lack of ability to make reservations on Friday and Saturday nights, the nights they are the most needed! My overall perception on this establishment would be 9/10. I hope you have as memorable a night their as I did!
