Great little restaurant at the end of a long day. We were able to make reservations late in the afternoon and still be able to be seated shortly after we arrive. Lively afterwork bar crowd and regulars

I came in alone and ordered a drink, it was fantastic. The interior of the place is dark and cool with a bar and lounge areas. My bartender, Jon, was amazing. He was friendly and attentive and went out of his way to make everyone at the bar feel important. When my neighbor broke her glass, he had it cleaned... More

If you are looking to get away from the hustling crowd right on Newbury Street try this restaurant. The restaurant front is nothing amazing but inside the restaurant it has a very nice atmosphere. We arrived at city table at approximately 5:30. This is early and when we were seated there was only one other table with people at it.... More

I had a meal coupon for dinner for 2. The selections on the special menu was great. We had a good number of choices to choose from. The atmosphere was interesting and our waiter was very attentive.

We were a party of six, on a Thursday evening. The restaurant was not busy and there was very little noise from the bar. The seafood dishes were especially good, as well as the soup and apps. Reasonably priced entrees, and prix fixe choices too.

We were lucky enough to visit Boston during Restaurant Week. We are always a little nervous to eat out, because we have two little ones (5.5 years and 8 months) and never want to have the unruly kids at a nicer place. We decided to eat here and it worked out to be the best decision. First, the atmosphere was... More

We were there for dinner and had a very mixed experience. The fried clams were wonderful, expertyly done, and clearly very fresh. The tuna tartare was not so good, with a heavy soy flavor. And the gazpacho was somewhere in the middle, not outstanding, not bad. So average, on the balance. The service seemed untrained or maybe just a tired... More

I walked by early in the day stopped in, looked at the menus and decided to give it a try. From that first contact, everyone I cam in contact with was professional and pleasant. I returned, ( mid-week) for an early 6:00 dinner. It was not crowded, but did begin to fill up after 7 pm. Plates were creative, good... More

We had reservations for a Sunday morning and were seated promptly upon arrival. The brunch offerings were plentiful and we liked that they offered four different types of Mimosas, not just one or two. In the end we went with egg-white omelets and were surprised that they came with both toast and breakfast potatoes - deliciously filling. Service was prompt... More

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.
