Stephi’s On Tremont is the sister restaurant to Stephanie’s on Newbury. The one time I had dinner at Stephi’s On Tremont, I had the roast chicken and potatoes. Although it was good, nothing about the dish prompt me to return right away.
More recently, we were looking for dog friendly restaurants that had outdoor seating. Although the food at Stephi’s itself had mixed reviews, Stephi’s was exceptionally accommodating and warmed me up to return again.
We sat outside on the terrace for our canine friend to be able to wait for us to have our meal. So many South End dogs and their owners stopped by to pet and greet the dog.
The restaurant decor is classic and warm. The globe lights, patterned booths and brown hues are very clean.
I had the soup special which was butternut pumpkin $8. It was very autumny, smooth and well seasoned.
My friend ordered the Classic Stephi’s burger and he ordered it medium, but it came out medium rare $15. The thin fries were nicely salted and crisp. The melted cheddar cheese, thick bacon, mushrooms and caramelized onion was too much going on and he said he it didn’t compare to The Gallow’s burgers.
My friend had the crunchy vegetable salad for $15 with blackened chicken for an additional $3 and had carrots, cucumbers, celery, cauliflower, feta, baby arugula and lemon vinaigrette. She said aside from the blackened chicken, the salad was so so. Nothing memorable.I had the pecan goat cheese fritter salad for $16. The salad is massive with the field greens, spiced pecans, sliced dried pears, balsamic and I loved it. It was great as a snack later on. I will definitely be back for this salad.My friend had a seared yellowfin tuna salad for $17 with spinach, olives, tomatoes, green beans and lemon caper vinaigrette. It was light, vinegary from the capers and olives and she loved it.
