We sat at the bar and had a great time. It was a Saturday and they only served the brunch menu. Somewhat disappointed as we were looking forward to tartar, escargots and confit. The service was very good. Very happy with the wine list, prices and size selection. We had fun ordering 1/2 carafes and sharing. The short rib sandwich... More

It was the last weekend of 2014 where my friends and I decided to have a last minute end-of-the-year dinner. Most of the places around Boston were booked for a large group of people so Gaslight to the rescue! The first thing that I like to do once I get to a restaurant where I've never been to was to...

Our family enjoyed a nice dinner here this past weekend on a snowy night in Boston. One of our family members lives in France part of the year and even she enjoyed the steak frites. It was delicious. And the others enjoyed their scallops and vegetables. The fondue appetizer wasn't anything to brag about.....expensive and puny......but the rest of the... More

Convenient location in Boston's South End. The decor was classy without being formal. Most importantly, the food was great! We really enjoyed the dressing on the beet salad. Perfect, not overly done, and a very generous serving. The porkchop entrée was amazing! Service was prompt and professional. We enjoyed our entire evening here!

Gaslight is a very authentic French Brasserie. We have visited on different occasions with adults alone and adults and children for Sunday Brunch. The free parking is incredibly convenient and a real plus. As we arrived and waited for our party, we sat at high tables and immediately felt the charm of the atmosphere. The tables were tight in the... More

The menu, the marble top tables, the subway tiled walls and the aroma's of the cooked dishes that filled the air....all of which brought our entire family back to one of any restaurant in Paris. The meals were filling, the wait staff was very pleasant and attentive to any wish. Our water glasses was never less than half full. The... More

Service was good, but the food was to die for. Clams, escargot & mussels. Plus the greatest French Fries!
