A bit pricy but worth it.

We enjoyed dinner with friends at Rustic kitchen- I loved the chicken and artichoke spaghettini and the glass of fume blanc wine. My husband had the Spaghetti Bolognese, which he said was well-prepared but had too many ingredients. The paella one friend had was delicious and so filling she took... read more

I liked everything about this restaurant, the decor, the service and the food. It has a great vibe to it, and no one in our group had a bad thing to say about their food. My daughter especially liked her mussels and I particularly liked the flatbread. I definitely recommend this as a place to eat while in Boston.

The mother-in-law arranged for us to park near the Charles Playhouse for a Saturday night performance (Blue Man Group). We were short on time so when I noticed the parking garage was adjacent to Rustic Kitchen, we decided to give it a shot. Arguably, the best coincidental meal I have ever had! Despite arriving without a reservation at 6:30pm we... More

"The Cooking Show is a one of a kind dining experience hosted by Chef Liz Bramwell and recorded live from Rustic Kitchen Boston." What a blast and fun way to enjoy a phenomenal meal! Show up hungry because you will be fed. Chef Liz is engaging, entertaining and educational. Already planning a return visit. Best health always, Supermom-in-training

Met a local Bostonian on the street who recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The food was great, fresh ingredients well prepared and a fabulous choice. The place started to get busy as we were leaving so I would advise booking or going early to avoid disappointment.

Nice place to eat. Small & quaint. Very good service. Food was very good. Only bad, not really restaurants fault, was an invasion of just off work hipsters who crowded into place and were very loud. Eventually left. Nice menu

Tonight I dined at the Rustic Kitchen with 3 other ladies. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we had a wonderful experience. Our party ate filet mignon, the pasta bolognese, the baked rigatoni, and the lobster carbonara. Everyone loved their food, including the focaccia with bean dip served as a complimentary starter. In fact, we had... More

I had dinner here with some friends early on a Wednesday night and our meal was ruined by the waitress rushing us through. We sat down and were clearly catching up and chatting, the first time she came to take the order, we told her we were chatting and hadn't even looked yet. Once we ordered she served our salads...

Had a nice casual dinner here. The place is upbeat with modern music playing in the background. The fried calamari and Cesar salad were delicious and the wine was great. Everyone enjoyed their dinners. The service was exceptional. Overall it was a very good experiences.
