We had breakfast 2 times while staying at the Revere hotel. The eggs Benidict was delicious as were the kids pancakes/sausage. Mohamad was our server and he was so great and nice. The kids kept asking if we could go back...we all loved it and they gave us coffees to go....

The food and the service here was great. We had a table of 16, so we expected there to be some difficulties with everyone's apps, drinks, and entree orders and there were a few, but they were all minor. The drinks were tasty as was the food, everyone really enjoyed the pastas and sea food. The only issue I had... More

I had dinner here tonight and really enjoyed it. The place wasn't too busy, but it was early. The atmosphere is nice, with a full bar, a wood stove in the back, and warm decor. The hostess and my waitress were incredibly friendly, but not imposing. I started off with a pear-infused vodka cocktail. They have quite a selection of... More

We recently ate dinner at Rustic Kitchen, and were so impressed with every aspect of our meal there. The wait staff is more than capable, knowledgeable, and friendly; everything is taken care of in a quiet, helpful manner. Upon being seated, we were given an absolutely sensational white bean dip and basket of homemade foccacia bread....we devoured every crumb of... More

Visited the rustic kitchen 3 nights ago - this was a visit after being bumped from the hotel we were staying in after they overbooked! The food was of good quality - although I think I was quite overpriced for what you got. We had meatballs to start that we're not seasoned at all & quite a bland tomato sauce.... More

We were nearby and decided last minute to have dinner here. It was raining so we were simply looking for some great food. The atmosphere was very relaxing and cozy. The food was fantastic.

I came in solo and decided to have a drink at the bar. The bartender was amazing, she was friendly, personable and vibrant. My drink, a white Sangria was wonderful, it featured fresh fruit and was refreshing. I also tried a summer vegetable soup that was fresh and delicious. I will definitely be going back.

We did oysters and several entrees and enjoyed them as family style dining. I've been eating at Legal for 35 years. Love it!

Its where the "Cooking Show" is filmed, nice decor, but the food seemed to lack, 'panache?' something missing in flavor and texture, good service.

My family was staying at the hotel next door and decided to venture over to Rustic Kitchen, which also is the kitchen that does room service for the hotel. My family of four ordered vastly different items, from pizza to fried oysters to salads and pasta. Every single dish was hot, tasted yummy, and had excellent presentation on the plate.... More
