A good meal at a reasonable price

It's quite a busy place and the noise level can be rather energetic. Tables are not very far apart, though to be fair there was enough room between tables so as not to be crowded. But you can certainly hear all the neighbouring conversations. Food is pretty decent. Surprisingly, we were more... read more

Enjoyed a wonderful breakfast. I had the Eggs Benedict and they were perfect along with mimosas. They have music on weekend evening.

Where to start. The GF menu had more options than most - it was hard to choose. I eventually decided on a side of roasted brussel sprouts for an app and the short rib with polenta cake and roasted vegetables for dinner - all of which were delicious. My husband, who does not have dietary restrictions, had the taco duo... More

My girlfriend and I met a couple of her old college friends here for a casual Sunday brunch after failing to come up with any other options in our area that would meet our dining criteria (one vegan and one picky eater). The menu featured something for everyone, although there didn't seem to be any stand-out, must-order dishes. The food... More

This restaurant is located in the Lenox Hotel in Boston, a hotel that has been in business for decades. But the restaurant is a relatively new incarnation, and it is just the best. The wine list is extensive, the menu varied. I ate tuna spring rolls, a kale and greens salad and duck breast, complimented with an Argentine Malbec. It... More

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!
