I was invited out to dinner with some friends and one had suggested we go to 'POPS', never heard of it. We decided to try it and believe me, I am a picky person. The service, atmosphere and the food was great! The pork was so tender and tasty, I could cut it with my fork. The rice and beans, flatbread was great. My friends thoroughly enjoyed it. Great price for the meal. I would definitely go again.

IT started off not too good. Got there at 7:15 for dinnner and was completely empty. The hostess, looked at her book and looked a the dining room. THere was literally only one other couple in the place and said we could eat at the counter because all of the other tables were being held for reservations. So I said wewould leave, then she "found us a table" but said it was reseverved for 8:30pm. Just a note, poor class to mention this to people you are seating. The food was good, a bit pricy but not extreme, just need better people skills and lower prices.

For starters, the mushroom and truffle oil omelet was absolutely delicious, but it looked so lonely on the oval dinner plate sprinkled with a few pieces of salad. You see, the bread and/or potatoes were extra---and small for $4.00 (noted when served at the next table). The omelet also got a bit cold, while I waited for the salt and pepper, because, as the waiter explained, they don't have enough shakers for all the tables. In fact, none were in evidence at the surrounding tables. A trip to the Dollar Store would remedy the situation in a heartbeat! Our water was never refilled and coffee refills were delivered after being requested. The service was, at best, begrudging. Perhaps, it was too loud for the waiter to hear himself think... All in all, good food but uneven and unattractively presented portions. I'm sure one can do better... After all, an omelet and its consumer deserve at least a piece of toast for $10!

My fiance and I have been served like royalty at Pops every time we go. The food is incredible (the short ribs are the best I've ever had), but the service is what makes the difference at this restaurant. We now live outside of the city, but we travel back to the South End just to eat there. I highly recommend it.

I went to Pops for dinner with my family on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. We had a 7:30 reservation and were seated immediately upon arriving. Throughout the meal, the manager (who greeted us when we arrived) checked in to make sure everything was to our liking. Despite the small space, it never got too loud for the 6 of us to have a conversation. Everything we had was delicious starting with the drinks. The coconut pineapple mojito is a must - my husband was so jealous of mine that he immediately ordered one for himself. The cobb salad and crab cake appetizers were delicious as were the short rib entree and the gnocchi casserole (which is filling enough to be an entire meal). My father's entree arrived just a few minutes later than the rest of ours, and our waiter immediately offered to take it off the bill. He also brought us two complementary desserts, a peanut butter filled, chocolate covered angel food cake and an apple cranberry tart, both of which were delicious. The entire meal was wonderful, and we will definitely be back.

Pops is a great little restaurant with really good food, wonderful service, an affordable wine list and nice atmosphere. Unlike a lot of other places, you don't have to shout to be heard. The garden area (enclosed) is particularly nice. Menu is varied and something for everyone. The duck is really really good.
