It is hot on the 3rd floor

This is a big place and was pretty empty when we had a business function. We were on a small room on the 3rd floor. It was extremely hot which made the room seem small and closed in. I did not stay long as a result... not sure I would hurry back, but it may not be fair to judge... read more

I love the location, the gnocchi and the atmosphere, great restaurant! Though I ALWAYS get the same thing, they have great specials and my husband has never eaten the same thing twice!

We had stayed in the Hilton Downtown Boston and we're recommended by staff for a great steak. This restaurant is right around the corner and let me say it's very good. I ordered a steak and my wife had the chicken ravioli. Its pricy but it's worth it if you want to treat yourself to an excellent meal. Our server... More

The prices are high but the food is worth it. There is nothing by way of variety but what ever you get, you'll love we did.

My wife and I went here for dinner on a Friday night while staying at a hotel down the street. We tried the prix fixe menu. There were some nice entrees offered. For $47 each, we got a salad, entree with one side, and a dessert each. I ordered the fillet and a side of broccoli rabe, upgraded to 12... More

We go to this place a few times a year for business lunches. The atmosphere is nice. The food has potential, but unfortunately the preparation falls short. On the latest visit, we ordered 3 steaks, 1 rare and 2 medium rare. All were well done with not a touch of pink. Unfortunately sending food back is not really an option... More

Nothing overly positive or negative about this restaurant. I ordered the filet and it was good but probably not worth the cost. Wine selection was good and staff made helpful suggestions.

Went to a party with 200 plus people--did a good job. Friends did eat downstairs and said it was good.
