This is a fairly small restaurant that can get pretty noisy during their busy times. Mint is long and narrow and the bar is not separated from the dining areas. Frankly, it’s not a particularly romantic place. It’s also a bit pricey. All that being said, the food and service are among some of the best I've experienced. The menu... More

We've been there several times - the food is very good, and there's something for everybody, from sushi to tapas to good salads to delightful main courses. Just fo alone or with someone you don't want to talk to (or hear from). Prices are reasonable for the fare. The acoustics are terrible, and unless you want to shout (and add... More

This was my second time dining here and while my first visit for dinner was outstanding my return lunch visit was a little lackluster. The restaurant was very quiet and it seems they don't have much of a lunch demand so perhaps that was part of the reason they weren't on their A Game. The short rib nachos which were... More

Nice quiet atmosphere, attentive service and great sushi. Love the Dragon roll. In the summer, you can sit outside with a cold drink.

Summer cocktails are very tasty and filled with fruit. We also really enjoyed the tapas, sushi, and the pad Thai. The server was nice and very efficient, and the atmosphere was relaxing. We sat inside, but there are outside tables available too.

Consistent excellence at Mint Bistro keeps me coming back for a lovely dinner at least once a week -boasting a fine menu (recently updated once again!) with a lovely variety of absolutely delicious and interesting lunch and dinner choices.Chef Steve (and Chef Matt!) obviously take such great pride in quality, and presentation in fine dining, yet they are completely humble...

This is our second visit for dinner at Mint Bistro, and again it was so noisy that it was almost impossible to carry on a dinner conversation. There is no effort to deaden the sound, so people are literally yelling to one another to be heard over the din at the neighboring tables. This really distracted from my dining experience.... More

The setting is best for dates or small groups and the food was really good. Everything was fresh. The sushi was excellent!

I love coming here on date nights with my wife. Service is always great and everyone always seems to be smiling! The shortrib is my favorite. My wife could eat the red sox everyday! Keep up the good work guys!

We were looking forward to dining at Mint Bistro with friends but terribly disappointed in our experience. The noise level on a busy night was extreme to the point of not being able to hear what was being said across the table. The food was a step above poor but sooooo not worth the price. We also noticed that the... More
