Good French restaurant !

Les Zygomates has a hipster's and jazzy atmosphere. Our servers were very attentive and cordial. They have a superb wine list and menu. We were happy with all our orders, presentation was beautiful, flavor was bright and delicious. They also had a live band. We had a great time and will go back.

Went for dinner on Saturday night to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary (got married) at Les Zygomates) and the entire experience was perfect as usual. From the wait staff to the owners, to the jazz band, Les Zygomates is always a pleasurable dining experience. A+!!!

We had a lovely meal there with some Asian clients. Sitting was comfortable, lightning was good and noise level was not intrusive (Monday night, so I don't know what circumstances would be with live music). The sole special was tasty and very fresh, the pan-fried duck on lentils was superb. I loved my Lemon parfait, a very well-balanced mixture of... More

I've dined at Les Zygomates for years and it never disappoints. We ate in the bar and the bartender was so prompt and accommodating! We had small plates with such defined flavor profiles! Do try the smoked blue fish pate! The atmosphere is great, there's live jazz on one side of the restaurant but if that's not what you're into,... More

Came here with 10 other colleagues we shared charcuterie & poisson fume mix and match. I wanted to order monk fish but they ran out so ordered sword fish instead. Ordered steam mussels to share also. Cozy atmosphere with jazz piano playing in the background. Finished my dinner with creme brulee.

Le Zygomates is located steps away from South Station and Downtown Crossing in Boston. We went there with a group of coworkers and their partners and had a good time. It's an upscale restaurant, with prices to match. For a group of 12 our bill came to $1600 before tip. For a place of this caliber I expect the experience... More

Exactly what a bistro should be. Standard bistro dishes with clever twists. Came here with a work group of 8 that ordered a variety of dishes. Everyone was pleased with their meals. Service was friendly and attentive. Would definitely return.

Forget the Oysters. Steamed Mussels are it! My boyfriend and I love to dine at fine restaurants and experience great cuisine. Overall, Les Zygomates did not disappoint. I chose Les Zygomates to celebrate his birthday as I was attracted by the "French Bistro with jazz" vibe and thought it would be suitable for how we like to celebrate. I had... More

Tucked away just a couple of blocks from the Chinatown archway is this wonderful modern French gem. Les Zygomates offers authentic French cuisine mixed with wonderful Continental and American fare. Our party had the steak frites (perfect!), stuffed pork tenderloin, exquisitely grilled tuna, and incredible scallops, the latter nestled on a bed mashed celery root - awesome. While the entrees...
