We stopped to eat here when all other Boyleston Street restaurants were full and was a nice treat. The staff was very friendly and food was delicious. We had a delicious pear martini here, a place off the beaten path to try attached the a lovely hotel.

We had one of the best meals in Boston. We shared the fried clams and the margarita pizza for app's. For the main meal I had the sirloin and my wife had the haddock.Cooked to perfection the food could not have tasted any better. Andrea was excellent as our server, portions and price made it a 10 for the evening.

This was the first time my BF and I have been here. We've been to the City Bar in the Lenox Hotel and that is wonderful so we expected this to be equal or greater in scale.

We've gone to City Table a number of times, but this was our first meal there with our now 8 month old son.

We walked to the restaurant passing many others in the area. We had a reservation and were promptly seated, but there were empty tables and that should have told me something.
