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.

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. Punch line: it's not worth the money or your time! First off, our service was poor. It took forever to order our drinks... More

We've gone to City Table a number of times, but this was our first meal there with our now 8 month old son. This is a place we pick because they are consistently good, have a wide selection and offer a few vegetarian choices. It's a great spot for an early dinner after an afternoon Red Sox game. On this...
