Good time. Good waitress (stephanie). They got my order wrong but it was so good I finished it anyway. Feel bad for staff they took my entire price fix fathers day special off check for mistake. Busy night I would return for sure!

This is, more or less, the only game in town, but...it was a very pleasant surprise. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the service very friendly and efficient, and the food - excellent. I had a wonderful salad and terrific sirloin steak, and my husband had a wonderful pork t-bone. The only disappointment was that the Cosmopolitan was very small...surprising... More

Went for our 21st wedding anniversary. We have lived in Westwood for 14 years, wanted to go somewhere close. Restaurant was packed on a weekday night. We arrived around 7 and were seated quickly. Waitress was attentive. Food was excellent. Prices were more than we would usually pay. While the meal was a pleasant experience for our anniversary and there... More

My wife and I went there for my birthday, expecting a great meal and were surprisingly disappointed. It started with a server who was efficient, but never introduced herself. She took my drink order; a Boston Hotel Priced bourbon on the rocks which arrived in short order. The best thing we had was the onion soup; hot and very flavorful.... More

We have been going to Chiara since they opened and often bring friends. The food is always top notch and the menu changes often enough to keep it interesting. The staff are great and the décor is comfortable and stylish. It's always reliable and that's why we love and keep going back.

I've had their brunch, which was good. The last two times I've gone for dinner the food was o.k., at best. Steak was tough and fatty. Disappointing.

This is a spot that always feels as if it is a private club just for you and friends. The food is outstanding and the service just right. Hard to beat in the suburbs.

Chiara is a fabulous restaurant! We go there often! This Christmas we took 12 family members for a special family dinner the weekend after Xmas. Both the food and service were outstanding! This was a tough family of food critics and everyone was very pleased! If you haven't tried it you are missing out!

Our first visit here was to celebrate our 46th anniversary. The food was very good and ample which somewhat offset the Bistro prices. Service was attentive at first but less so as the evening progressed and the number of diners increased. It was so dark at our small corner table that we had to use a cell phone light to... More
