Best restaurant in Quincy, Braintree, and beyond! The staff is a wonderfully curated group of professionals who juxtapose kindness and panache. Whether you order one of their divine cocktails from the menu or ask them to surprise you- the wow factor is there. The food is ALWAYS fantastic. From succulent steak frites to the original superb seasonal plates. This place hits the mark in all categories. To top it off, Mat the owner is a terrific human. Always makes sure we have a great experience. Five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Buttermilk pancakes were not great, but the falafel sandwich was amazing! Wished there were more vegetarian options and the menu online matched menu in the restaurant. Service was a little slow. I was unaware of the 3% that is added to the bill automatically for the kitchen staff before I arrived.Food: 4/5


Great place for an outing


Idle Hour was the ideal spot for a recent celebration. 8 of us fit comfortably at a high top. The lighting and music created a classy casual vibe. Service was impeccable, and flexible despite dietary restrictions and ongoing orders throughout the evening. Thanks to the Idle Hour team Meg, Sasha, Mat and Sean for making everything so lovely

Valentine’s Day - it was perfect!


Drag brunch events are a ton of fun and food and drinks are always great


Our server (Jose) was very attentive. Food was average (really small menu though), nothing special but also nothing to complain about. We were by far the oldest people in the place (mid 50s). Really no complaints at all but not really a place we would consider in the future.


The main bartender was extremely condescending and rude when I was asking about a certain drink/spirit (Thursday - 1/26/23 @ 7pm.) He essentially was making fun of me for not having deep knowledge of alcohol and spirits to the point where he was aggressively questioning me when I was just asking what they had so that I could try something new…it was embarrassing and very awkward. I absolutely would not recommend this place based on this interaction.

I love everything about this place from the extremely friendly staff to the food and drink menu. The food is phenomenal and the menu is unique and the drinks that they curate only add to that experience. I come here regularly and every time I'm there I feel like I'm part of the crew. I wish they served food after 10 but I have zero complaints. On top of that they have a great music selection that's primarily hip hop and it's what originally brought me there. Keep killing it guys.


Service and food was awesome! Price for the portion size makes it tough to go back often. Once in a while place due to the cost.


Awesome spot. Mushroom bisque and short rib gnocchi were outstanding. Beers and cocktails top notch.


great vibes, with super chic and upbeat decor. friendly bartenders and a mixed crowd of customers. this place would be great for meeting a group of friends for drinks and a small snack. only complaint is that i wish there was more variety when it came to the house cocktails!Dietary restrictions: i was able to order my drink with kettle one (gluten-friendly vodka)

Well we bought $33 dollar tickets for the NYE party that we didn’t need to buy because no one else had them. And there was no event happening, just a bar with 90’s music on. The bar it self was good and the staff were nice but I can’t help but feel a little ripped off on the “experience”


Excellent service as always! The team made NYE so much fun.


A fantastic place for drinks and food with freinds. If your freinds can't have a good time here, you need better freinds.
