Troquet Ratings and Reviews

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.

The food was phenomenal. The lobster crepe, the corn chowder soup and omg - the heirloom tomato salad may have been the best thing I have ever tasted. My wife had the suckling pig, which was perfectly flavourful and tender as can be. We could not finish the desserts, which included a sublime key lime tart and some chocolate confection that left us over the line, done/stuffed. Not much privacy in the seating arrangement, was made it hard to notice what your neigbors were eating or saying, the service was competent and attentive. We can't wait to return.

While ok, troquet is not the epitome of fine dining in Boston. You can do better at a number of restaurants. The wine was a bit suspicious ( a 10 year old French Bordeaux does not and should not taste like a 2 year old California Pinot noir. ) the food was well prepared, but unremarkable . The service was polite and attentive . Location is certainly convenient . Green line and Boylston station.

I was pleasantly surprised by Troquet. The location was fabulous and we were able to go for a quick stroll around the park prior to dinner. The appetizers were fabulous and the main courses (we both had fish) were very good although mine could have used a bit more seasoning. Service was efficient and friendly. Overall, a very nice experience. I will be back.

Excellent food, well-prepared and nicely presented, but very pricey ($60 before tax for roasted sole). Service was first rate, with staff attentive and responsive but not obtrusive. Not the place for a casual meal, but a good choice for higher-end dining.

Continues to have an unbelievable wine selection - makes every other list in Boston look like a joke. *The* restaurant for serious wine lovers. The owner has the rare gift of regularly offering wines of great interest at every price range.

It was our first time at Troquet, we came for our anniversary. It was a fairly quiet summer evening in Boston, with oppressive heat outside. We were seated promptly and ushered upstairs to our table by the window. Our server was friendly and knowledgable. I greatly enjoyed my striped bass, and my husband enjoyed his meal as well.
The food was delicious and overall a great experience. I think this restaurant could benefit from a spruce up. Super friendly though.

Troquet has one of the ore notable wine lists in the City, but it also pours flights of 3-4 wines chosen to pair beautifully with the appetizers and main courses on the menu. We enjoyed an exceptional meal including duck confit salad, braised octopus, striped bass and braised shortribs and pasta. We finished with selections from the restaurant's notable and excellent cheese cart. Our server was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable especially regarding pairing wines with the food. All in all it was one of the best and most pleasant meals we have ever enjoyed.

Fabulous! The creativity and quality of the food are unmatched in Boston. Whether you are eating upstairs or sitting at the bar, the serice is great. The menu can meet every interest and the specials were outstanding. Highly recommend for any occasion.

We hadn't been here for awhile but we love the butter from France and the flights of wine for each course! As always we had a great time with good food and the view of the Public Garden is always nice but the menu really hasn't changed and our server was a little bit too friendly. He kept touching my DC who found it a bit disconcerting.

The food and beverage/wine/drinks at this restaurant are not only well prepared and very delicious but the prices are a relative bargain, especially the wines. This is a must go to restaurant in Boston off Boylston.

Very attentive service, food is good and tasty, albeit very US-centric (i.e. too many things going on at once on the plate).
Where Troquet shines is in its wine list. Great variety, exceptional prices especially in high end vintages.

The service was impeccable yet friendly. The waiter was knowledgeable about the food and wine offerings and was eager to answer questions and offer comments about both.
The food was creative and terrific. Troquet carries a rating that deservedly stands above other fine restaurants in the area. I was just visiting Boston for the weekend, but wish I could return to dine there again.

I've been coming to Troquet for years but never wrote a review - long overdue for someone who deserves my support! The owner, Chris, and the chef, Scott, are really operating at a level which would merit Michelin stars if Boston were included in the review. The menu is a thing of beauty - everything is great. You can't put a foot wrong. In addition, this is the single best wine list in the world - especially during the summer when there is a nightly cellar sale to supplement the wine list. If you're uncomfortable spending >$150 for a bottle, no worry - there's a fantastic by the glass list which is stunningly high quality (you can get half glasses or glasses which is great if you'd like to try a themed flight). Top it all off with a view of the Boston common that can't be beat, warm service, and a marvelous ambiance which is perfect for any setting (date, business, any given Wednesday night). Bottom line - go now.

We have dined here many times food/service has always been outstanding.
The bread was not as fresh and tasty as it has always been. They may have even changed it.
My entree was superb, my wife's scallops very salty.
Cheese selection at the end was a little disappointing.
Definately go back, still love the food.

VERY noisy environment. The service was adequate but not up to the standards you expect in a restaurant at this price point. The food was good but, again, not up to the standards you expect at this price. We will not be returning nor recommending Troquet to others.
OMG Great Food and Wine!
If you are looking to drink some of the finest wines in the world at exceptionally fair prices and pair them with beautifully prepared, creative food, you need look no further. What a little gem this is. All of the service staff were personable and professional and Scott's (the Chef) cuisine is both creative and beautifully executed. I really enjoyed Troquet...enough so that I went back the very next night!!
Extraordinary as Usual
If it's possible for a restaurant to set a minimum standard of extraordinary and meet it every time, it's Troquet. Our group of 6 had the Beef Duo; Lamb; and Scallops. Each dish was impeccable. The service was great and evening was a great success.
Smiling all the way through the meal....
Troquet consistently prepares outstanding food accompanied by the best wine list in the city. The menu is just the right length to allow for creating outstanding blends of flavors and textures with incredibly consistent execution. From the foie gras to the cavetellin to the masterfully prepared duck, I am always impressed. A perfect combo of medium duck breast, with crisp skin, rendered fat and a thigh that falls apart like confit is hard to match. Kudos to Scott and the kitchen. I love tapping into Chris' extensive wine knowledge and his laid back counsel on choices.
