Troquet Ratings and Reviews
The overall dining experience was fair. ...
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 !

Delightful dinner experience before theatre. Very friendly host and staff. A definite keeper. Food was exceptional. Presentation creative. Staff very respectful of our theatre time. All in all a wonderful experience.

Lovely place near Theatre District. Excellent food and warm service. Stairs awkwardly deliver you right on top of the kitchen, and there are tables near the kitchen which are not as nice as those near the windows.

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.

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.
