Troquet Ratings and Reviews
We arrived a little late for our reservation and the staff, knowing we had a show to go to, were very attentive and quick in getting us started on our meal. The food was delicious and the wine flight was fun and went well with the food. It's on the expensive end of our price range so we'll save this one for special occasions, but it was very nice and we'll go back again.
Well...where to start!
Servicewise, lets thank Olga first who saved our valentine's evening by providing a great service and experience.
Foodwise - with a 400$ bill, not even close to a just ok evening. We were hoping for that getaway high-end experience. Food looked great on the menu but all dishes were sadly blend, the Sole with a 20$ extra simply cannot be served overcooked,
Cutlery and Plates don't even do justice to any dishes. Table very small, Nothing to WoW us...maybe the butter service gives a little interesting experience.
Our server knew multiple issues, not her fault here of course but would have been nice to have a manager at our table for feedbacks/support.
We simply had a better experience/value to an equivalent restaurant the night before.
Overall, really overpriced. Sorry, it's a miss...

Our experience was inconsistent with the posted reviews. The space is poorly designed with bathrooms opening to the kitchen. I was unable to go to the mens room since te Sous Chef is parked right in front of its door. The frumpy staff (in terms of attire, attitude and responsiveness) were inattentive to our needs and we expected some element of service for this price. The food was nothing to write home about. The wine list is the highlight but many items listed are not available. An ordinary restaurant with prices seen at extraordinary restaurants.
Another delicious meal at Troquet before theater. Lovely view over the Boston Common. A smaller dining room upstairs, so not too noisy. Yummy food and attentive service.
Troquet is moving to new quarters. I hope the food remains so delicious and the atmosphere will be cozy.
I made reservations through open table for Troquet. It was such an easy process. I liked and appreciate the fact that open table followed up with an email informing me about the traffic conditions due to the woman's march. It helped me prepare better. The tie up or reference to flower petal was great. I purchased a bouquet to be delivered at the restaurant. The bouquet was beautiful and was delivered on time. It made my wife's and my day.
Fully vested wait staff knowledgeable about wines and offerings. Attention to detail and diners apparent. Excellent menu offering traditional foods with a modern approach. Delicious dessert choices and a great cup of coffee too. Pre dinner bread a bit chewy for my taste, but other than that two thumbs up! Looking forward to our next visit.
Dinner at Troquet is not just dinner but a dining experience. The only way to truly appreciate the art - and make no mistake it is an art - that is the cuisine at Troquet is through a Chefs Tasting! Troquet is hands down the best gem in the city of Boston!
New Year's Eve fireworks spectacular. Outstanding view that everyone was willing to share. Food is exceptional. "Limited" menu had plenty of options, unlike some other prix fixe menus that didn't offer a full variety of plates. Everything was perfect. Wine selections and pairings are also exceptional. Service was friendly and helpful without being invasive.
Best restaurant in Boston... by far. Exceptional food, peerless wine list and very professional (yet still friendly) service teams. Owned and managed by good people, the utmost care goes into preparing every meal and every dining experience. There are several top-notch restaurants in Boston, but Troquet is the best of the best by a long shot.
Special thanks to Olga and the rest of the team for providing us with an amazing experience on Friday night.
Troquet remains one of the top venues in Boston. Imaginative cuisine with very fresh ingredients and inspiring combinations of flavors, every serving is a delight as well as a surprise. Outstanding service in a remarkably quiet environment. the wine pairings has always been a successful and welcomed addition.
May well be that this is a reaction to frequent visits: The physical space could use a make over!
Excellent cuisine...1st course of Ricotta Cavatelli was exceptional...notable deep wine list (bottles)...wines by the glass extensive and offered in both 2oz. and 4oz. sizes...excellent for tasting several wines without consuming too much in total...fantastic desserts made for a crowning finish to the dining experience...Highly Recommend!!
Great food and amazing service - enjoyed every course. We had the chilled lobster crepe and polenta agnolottie for appetizers, the cavatelli as an entree along with a lamb special - all of which were delicious. Will definitely be back and would recommend for business dinners as well as special occasions.
Wonderful dinner. We started with the lobster crepe which was amazing. I had the chicken which was also delicious. We elected to do the wine pairings. I would highly recommend doing this at it does enhance the flavors of the dish!
By far my favorite was the apple and brie dessert. This was delectable! We can't wait to go back. This was an excellent venue to celebrate a special occasion.
The overall dining experience was fair. I was disappointed with my meal (Tuna) and the wine selection. We sampled 3 wines before settling on a 4th, which wasn't very good. For a restaurant that advertises it's wine selection, I was disappointed in the quality. The decore of the restaurant was also disappointing down stairs and in need of some TLC.
I would not recommend this restaurant as one of the better high end restaurants in Boston. I was looking for a "Wow" and the overall experience feel pretty short of that expectation.
I'm a vegetarian so I can eat about two things on the menu, but they're both delicious. My mother and I are good cooks, so we often scoff at what other similar restaurants have to offer. Not this place--we love it. We'll still go, but will miss the lovely view of the Common through the windows when it changes its location.
The cuisine is excellent ! The wines are expensive but you can take a lot of them by the glass
so to match your choice of food nicely. The room is not very warm or cosy but is reasonably elegant. The two or three tables by the window overlooking the Boston Common are of course
best. Service was not always very coordinated, but the food was delicious !
Interesting menu and wine list. We went pre theater and had 4 appetizers that were all unique, visually very attractive, and very good. We were tight on time so we could not take advantage of the 5 or 7 item pairing menu but will be back to do that as we loved the atmosphere, service and the view of the commons and are looking forward to taking advantage of the extensive wine list.
Troquet is a place I visited once many years ago and never returned. I forgot why, until I say the prices. The markup on the wine is horrendous. Pillar Box Red is a $13.- bottle of wine. You'll pay close to $80.- a bottle buying it by the ounce at this place. The same is true for the Breca. And those are just the ones I could easily recall. How about a nice piece of Dover Sole? Better ask the price first, because it says MP (market price) and that happens to be $60.! Just not worth it. When we were leaving I said to my date "You go first and see if anyone asks how dinner was or if everything was OK". Guess what? Too busy looking at their cell phones.
Had dinner at Troquet with friends visiting from New York. The food was excellent as usual. The wine list continues to be fairly priced for the quality of the wines offered. This allows mere mortals to drink some exceptional Bourdeauxs, at least for special occasions. Everyone in our group was very pleased with their dinner, the service, the décor and the overall experience. Keep up the good work.
