Liked City Table so much that we came back again - even though there are many fabulous eating places nearby. Fine staff, good atmosphere and excellent food.

Had reservations at this restaurant for Valentine's day! The ambiance is spectacular and the food was amazing. The Filet & scallops were to die for. Their alcohol list was huge!! Had a great experience here. Definitely recommend this restaurant!

The menu was wonderful and then the special was Halibut, a dream come true. Cooked to perfection, a dream realized. We were a party of 6 girls, very different tastes & we all loved loved loved the City Grill, enough that we came back the next night! Great staff, great drinks, comfortable atmosphere, you'll be happy here!!!! Thanks Mario

City Table is a fantastic find in the Lenox Hotel, near Copley Square. The dining space itself is warm and inviting, all dark woods and dim lighting. Although we weren't in the bar, we were close enough to see that it was pretty lively. This is a very easy place to relax into a long dinner, which is exactly what... More

Six girls celebrated my Aunts birthday here this past Saturday night. We had originally planned on going out, but changed our minds, as it was freezing and we were staying at the hotel. Mario was our waiter and he was great. Friendly and fun. I think the hit of the night was the halibut, but the scallops were delicious too.... More

All the staff are so pleasant at his place. It was a very cold Sunday so it was not crowded. Lots of great choices for brunch, which includes salads and breakfast items. I had the oatmeal with fruit which was very good but their bacon is sooooo divine. It is Apple smoked and crispy, which is how I like it.... More

We have visited City Table for breakfast, lunch and dinner and have enjoyed each and every meal. Large variety, selection and portions- friendly service, always greeting you with a smile and remembering your name. Why go anywhere else!

Staying at the Lenox led us to this quaint restaurant. On the first night of our stay we just headed to the bar for drinks and were greeted warmly by the bar tender who made specialty cocktails for us. While we were at the bar the meals served next to us were large and looked beautiful. We ate breakfast the... More
