Met a friend for lunch during a busy, rainy Boston June day. Pleasant vibes with good service. Order was taken quickly as most patrons appeared to be on lunch breaks. We split several dishes , turkey sandwich, small steak and salad. Fresh, tasty and a reasonable size. I do not like to be overfed but do not want to feel... More

We went there for lunch. The place was busy, but no reservation was required. The lunch menu is somewhat limited but sufficient to satisfy most tastes. I had the Crocque Monsieur,the French version of a ham and cheese sandwich. It was quite delicious and came with an ample portion of fresh salad (would have also been available with fries). Service... More

The food was great, except for one member of our group who had a very dry chicken. The music was a single pianist who did a great job of being entertaining but not too loud for conversation (and the band is on a raised platform, so you can see it from many spots in that area of the restaurant). Our... More

We dropped in on a Saturday evening when a jazz band was supposed to be playing. We did not have a reservation, and were told that the room with the band was full, so we went to sit at the bar. Straight after, someone else came in, who did have a reservation, but were told that the band was late,... More

This was a great place for business. I've done both lunches, cocktails and dinners here. Always good food and I get more out of it than I expect. Wine selection is top notch, beer selection is good too. Great happy hour specials with oysters as well!

My boyfriend and I went here for New Years Eve dinner. The night started out great the problem came when we paid the bill, my boyfriend paid with his credit card but when the waiter came back with his receipt the total was drastically lower than the listed total. The manager explained that they'd charged 130.00 to the card I... More

I love coming here with my husband for a romantic dinner or with my BFFs. This place has it all, jazz, food and wine! The restaurant has two dinning sections. One where you can see the musicians and the other one. The section with the view of the musicians seems to be more elegant (white table cloth) while the other... More

I decided to try this place as I was looking for a well-rated restaurant within walking distance of my hotel. It tooted live jazz and traditional french fare, and after my experience, I was not disappointed with either. My only qualm is that I decided to go here by myself and as a woman alone in a restaurant, got some... More
