My Neighborhood Bar – Reasonably priced, casual, and comfortable, Coda serves up consistently tasty food alongside an impressive drink list. The servers are friendly and attentive, and I can never seem to make a martini as good as their bartenders do. Some of their stand-out menu offerings are the "off-the-menu" burger (available to those in the know) and the house-made charcuterie plate. The last charcuterie plate I ordered came with pickles made out of vegetables that I didn't even know could be pickled, like squash and sprouts. Their new late-night menu has deliciously pan-fried Chicken and Biscuit with a pile of perfectly cooked shoestring fries for $5. Besides the well-crafted food menu, Coda should also be recognized as a great place to grab a drink, as they have an assortment of microbrews on tap, a seasonal drink menu and there is almost always an interesting movie playing on one of the TVs above the bar.
Getting Better and Better – Ive been to this place a few times. The first time I got the meatloaf (mushroom at that) and it was very good; my friend got the burger and it was everything a burger should be (which is harder and harder to come by these days). But this last time I was there I was really impressed: the feta/ sundried tomato spread was really a nice touch; duck confit bruschetta was actually way better than one would expect: bread was toasted just enought, and the duck had an almost BBQ-ness to it. My briscit was lackluster, however. Sauce was too think; meat a little tough; the hash was very good though. Service was very good and met expectations. The people in this kitchen care about the food and I reccomend going.
The South End former home of Tim's houses a welcoming hangout, serving comfort fare. – Sleek and modern, yet relaxed, this Back Bay hangout appeals to drinkers and diners alike. Cocktails such as a basil gimlet and the orange mojito are both unique and generously-poured, the wine list (by the glass and bottle) is extensive, and many craft beers round out the drink menu. The kitchen is open until midnight, serving comfort fare including burgers, steak frites, mac and cheese, and turkey-portobello meatloaf.
Bar food at it's best – Amazing appetizers (strongly recommend the asian beef skewers and the tomato and brie crostini). Appetizers are dinner size portions, that are perfect for sharing over one of their many microbrews on tap. Although crowded on the Saturday night I was there, we were able to get a great spot at the bar. Although I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Tim's, this place is a great addition to the South End and I look forward to going back again.
absolutely awful – I went to this place because of all the good reviews. DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE. It was not worth the money. I had the steak frites and asked for it med rare and it came out well well done. I asked the waitress about it and she said, oh they must have over cooked it and walked away. What a waste of $18. My friend had the herb chicken and said it was awful. There are so many better places in the south end, do your self a favor and avoid this one.
Great addition to the neighborhood! – This place is great! We've been there 3 times now and haven't had a bad meal yet. It get's a little noisy, but it's fab and great for the neighborhood!
Comforting – It was sad to see one of the few institution dive bars disapear to another gentified-esque restaurant, but that doesn't mean Coda isn't yummy! The atmosphere is cozy, and the food portions are huge. Delicious version of calamari. They do need to add at least one more vegetarian meal option to the menu. The basil vodka gimlet was one of the best cocktails I've tasted in a long long time.
Sad to see Tim's go, but lovin' Coda! – I can't say enough good about it. The decor is beautiful, comfortable and friendly. The food was fantastic. I ended up getting the chicken due to some allergy issues I would have had with a couple of other dishes that I would have liked to try, and I was initially disappointed to do so. But as soon as I tasted the chicken... disappointment was gone. They did this simple dish brilliantly. Flavorful, moist... it was fantastic. My friends also very much enjoyed their food. Wine list was also great. And best of all... it's not all South End pricey! I'm very pleased with this new addition to the neighborhood.
Great comfort food – Great menu consisting of very well prepared comfort food, and a well thought out wine list. Excellent value for the quality of food. Crispy veggies and well cooked meats (not well done).
Some interesting cocktails at very attractive prices.
Great new addition to the South End.
