Consistently very good. Lots of choice. Service was a bit uneven Not clear why. Nevertheless, still a totally pleasant experience.
We had a 8pm reservevation on a Sunday so missed the crowed noisy place many speak of. I mentioned it was my wife’s birthday so they seated us at a nice corner table. Waiter was terrific. Pasta cooked as perfectly as I’ve had. The octopus a d fried artichoke apps were excellent. Overall a wonderful experience.
Excellent meal, very cool ambiance. Easy parking...hard to beat and we'll be back.
Fun setting with friendly service and excellent food quality.
Food was delicious! It was kind of hard getting our waiter to bring the correct stuff over that we had asked for but overall a great time.
We arrived earlier than expected and the hostess was super sweet and was able to accommodate us. The drinks were delicious and the service was fabulous. I can’t wait to go back
I went here
It was Valentine’s Day so the restaurant was busy as I suspected but we felt rushed through a very disappointing meal. We’ve had good experience here before but will never return on a holiday again.
Excellent service by Santiago. Scallops were great. Flavors were right on point. Passed the bread test.
Very nice brunch, as usual. Eggs cooked perfectly, fabulous flavorful and spicy Bloody Mary's, nice portions that don't leave you stuffed. Our waiter was a little annoying, but that is unusual.
I was disappointed that the Prix fixe lunch was not available after 11 on Sunday-easy to miss on the web site and misleading. Also, blueberry french toast and ricotta/egg dish weren't that hot-split both with a friend. I requested that the blueberry french toast be reheated and it still wasn't that hot. Brunch was a decent experience, but dinner was way better.
Love the chicken most of all!
We met friends there for Sunday brunch. Food, coffee and service wonderful, would recommend highly. We plan to come back and try dinner!
One of the finest restaurants around with a great staff
Great spot ... variety of food and wine choices.. friendly staff and always remember a friendly face. Octopus app is must try as are mussels. And who raves about a kale salad? This is a good one. Pastas are all tasty and can come in app size to share. Lots of wine choices and they make a good cocktail. Parking lot also a bonus
Great food, great service, poor seating location. Wish we had a better table (many were available, and we had reservations), but overall a really good experience! We’ll be back.
Loved it! Everything was so delicious.( chicken, branzino, brussel sprouts were all standouts) Service was great. I will revisit this restaurant soon!
This is becoming one of my favorite Boston restaurants for its consistently great food, free parking and now, for its fantastic service! I chose this place because I was meeting relatives from Finland staying at a hotel in the Back Bay, as well as other family members who live in the suburbs and would be driving in. Perfect location, and free parking a plus. The service and food was excellent - everyone raved about the bruschetta and bolognese, and our waiter Santiago was especially awesome. I only ate half of my meal because I had a salad and apps, and was planning on taking the rest home for lunch, but noticed it had been taken away. I mentioned that, and Santiago delivered me another half portion of the pasta! So sweet! We lingered FOREVER figuring out the bill (that's how my family rolls) and were the last ones to leave, and Santiago didn't mind at all when we asked him to take a group picture as we were leaving. He was very careful about it, making sure we got a great shot, and also very funny and entertaining. Love this place!
The food was nice, but our server was arrogant. He offered us more bread, and then said, it’s free. This was after I asked his opinion of two different wines, and he instead suggested the most expensive wine on the list, which I declined.
His attitude was condescending and we will not return nor recommend.
I have been many times but this time it was not good. The portions were extremely small it was a 1st time for 4 of the people there on my recommendation - very disappointong
Some dishes were awful...salad was overly salty and needed to be sent back. Trout was good. Other dishes were mediocre. Wait staff was friendly but inattentive. Pricey.
Love the restaurant and my family and I will be back!
Moms bday brunch
Cozy, yet energetic ambiance.
Excellent service, great recommendations, delicious food!
We had the best time! The food was phenomenal as it always is, the drinks were perfectly made and our service including overall experience was spectacular. I celebrated my birthday that evening and they made me feel so special. Emily (our server) and Sandra (manager that evening) were particularly outstanding. Thank you!! Highly recommended!
The ambiance was nice, but it was freezing in there. The restaurant even had space heaters going but it wasn't enough. Our water was in the weeds big time so service was't great. The food was ok but not worth the price.
High quality food,great balance food price-quality,loved the interior of the place and the staff is awesome every time ...
