French Bistro, Financial District

Pate and truffle frites were both delicious. Bar service was attentive, but on the slow side for a medium crowd. Servers were very friendly and accommodating, and helpful with alternative suggestions when we sent a poorly chosen drink back.

What a wonderful lunch had by all in my party. The Food was wonderful and the service better. My only complaint is that I was not able to try the wine since it was a work event. Can't wait to return.

Excellent choice for business outing or couples dinner. The place has a sophisticated but laid back vibe. Service is attentive and helpful, food is above average- live music is unobtrusive

We stopped here about 9PM on a Saturday night to find the place mostly empty (not a good sign. There was no one at the host station, which is on the bar side, so the bartender waived us over to the other restaurant side, where we stood around because there was not one obviously seating people. When we finally flagged... More

Finding somewhere that has excellent live jazz and terrific food brings together two of life's pleasures. I arrived quite early without a reservation and was given the option to sit where I could listen to the jazz band or the other side of the restaurant. I settled in to a quiet table by the window and was immediately greeted by... More

My first night in Boston & Les Zygomataes delivered what I wanted. Good range of beers and wine with attentive service. The food was good. I had the grilled swordfish and my partner had seared prawns with a truffles sauce. They also had a good range of fresh oysters but I didn't try them. We shared a lemon tart for... More

We were at the restaurant for a private party and had it all to ourselves. However, all of the food came from the regular menu. Everyone was raving about the raw oysters ( I don't eat them) that were served before dinner as part of the seafood bar. Each one of us sampled something different from the choices. The cuisine...

We have been going to Les Zygomates (or Les Zyg, as we often call it) for about 15 years. It has never disappointed in terms of food and atmosphere. We recently made a last minute decision to have dinner there, and were able to walk right in without a reservation and sat in the area with the live music. In... More

I had read lots of nice reviews of the restaurants, so i decided to just go and try it...with a big group of friends and coworkers (around 16 of us). We all placed our orders. I ordered a monkfish dish. When the waiter delivered the food to me, instead of monkfish, I saw shrimp and scallops. I immediately complained to... More
