Excellent French food in a cozy atmosphere

I've seen a few dissenting reviews for Troquet, but my visit was fantastic. The atmosphere of the upstairs dining room was great, with good views of the Boston Common through the huge windows. The service was good, more friendly than perfect. But it was the food that will keep me coming back... read more

Went there with my friend last night and it was a lovely night spent with wines and good food. We ordered the salmon tarter to share and for entrees, we had the duck and suckling pig. I have always been a fan of duck in French cuisine and this one was not disappointing. Crispy skins and juicy meat very delicate.... More

fine dining prices with less than fine dining food. Had the duo beef plate. The filet was excellent, but the spare rip meat was horribly sour. The wine that was recommended a #17 was inappropriate. Service was however fantastically excellent. For $300 one would expect all the food and wine to be excellent.

When our foodie friends ask me where to go in Boston we send them to Troquet, and especially if they're into wine. Stopped in on NYE with my wife and had a fabulous dinner... the house was packed. Chef Hebert has run the kitchen since they opened 15 years ago. The wine program is the best in town... a great... More

We planned for a nice dinner in Boston, and based on write-ups selected Troquet for dinner. We were very disappointed in the beverages (didn't have wine from the large selection of wines) and our dinners. Our drinks had some strange floating in them, like a film had formed on one of the ingredients and made its way into the drink,... More

This is a fine dining, amazing wine selection, romantic atmosphere restaurant. I have eaten here twice in the last month. Once on a business trip and once on a personal visit. Both meals were excellent and the service was very friendly and unobtrusive. Food recommendations: the lamb, or the duck. Get there early with a reservation and you can sit... More

My husband, two kids and myself had an early dinner here before going to the theater and we were not disappointed. The food was stellar. Even my two very picky children enjoyed their meals and asked to go back. I had the special appetizer of squid ink pasta with scallops and my husband had the pate and both were unbelievably... More

I had the beef with roasted carrots and brussel sprouts. It was amazing. The pasta with truffles was to die for!

We totally enjoyed this dining experience which is facing the Boston commons on boylston street. The dining room is upstairs with hard wood floors and simple table with white table cloths. The staff was friendly and relaxed. The wine list was extensive and choices of wines by the glass was numerous and diverse. The pricing was very reasonable. The food... More

Went with wife and enjoyed a memorable evening. I would give this restaurant an overall excellent except we felt entree items had too many ingredients which took away from the main components which were fish which by itself was very fresh with wonderful flavor. Wines were varied and we had ability to taste more than normal because they offer 2... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
