Chose this place as it was in our hotel and was well rated. We booked through Open Table and let them know it was our 21st anniversary...they started us out with champaign which was a nice touch. We had lobster bisque, chopped salad, filet mignon and seared scallops. Everything was delicious! The Kentucky Derby was on so that was nice.... More

We met for dinner here before this year's Boston Marathon and the place was full. Nevertheless, we had a wonderful meal with great service. We thought it would be very noisy with the crowd but it was surprisingly comfortable to carry on a conversation Don't recommend their vodka gimlets though.

We had brunch reservations for Marathon Monday. Admittedly, not our wisest move (seeing as we couldn't get access to Boylston), but the brunch was good, good value. Staff were eager to move us out, though there were a few empty tables. Location is great though.

We tried city table because of it's proximity to the Copely Marriott. This restaurant will not disappoint. We enjoyed boat bread, lobster bisque, veggie risotto, slider trio, burger, and steak frites. Every dish was excellent.

Went to the City Table from the Marriott Copley. Looking for a reasonable priced dinner for a business dinner. Enjoyed highly the raw oysters - served nicely chilled, clearly fresh. Ordered a bottle of 2010 Gigondas a steal at $63 a bottle. Nice medium bottle red. Enjoyed fully the Seared Duck Breast (medium rare) it was delicious. The pomegranate sauce... More
