Really enjoyed our dinner at Gaslight. Terrific meal with some great moderately priced wine options. The charcuterie plate was amazing! Yum!

We had a great brunch! We started off with Bloody Marys, best I have had in a long, long time. I had the salad with yellowtail tuna, yummy and healthy! My husband had the mussels, my favorite of the entrees. My daughter had banana crepes, so good but so sweet. My son had the steak and eggs, he said it... More

The restaurant has FREE parking!!! The menu is varied and atypical. The escargot were fabulous, the salads plenty to split, the swordfish tender and juicy, the beef bourguignon superb, and the roasted cod dish delish! The sweet ending of chocolate beignets was scrumptious!!! The service was delightful and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Wine list was complete and there was... More

It was love at first bite. This traditional whilst still trendy French brasserie ticks all the boxes. I came here for dinner , I sat in a cute little booth with short velvet curtains separating you from fellow diners, so very intimate but so very sociable. It's beautiful inside you feel like you're in a Parisian brasserie that used to... More

This gem of an upscale French restaurant goes above and beyond to ensure their guests dine in luxury. With free on-site parking, anyone looking for high-end cuisine, a relaxing atmosphere with an easy to get to destination in the city must being here. The appetizers, entree's, and desserts take the form of old country charm mixed with a modern dash... More

There were several choices. i am not a fan of Boston prices so I was pleased. All pictures show food after I tasted it. I had onion soup,... More

Went here for celebratory dinner - Highly recommend the escargot or bone marrow as appetizers. Most of the entree choices are really interesting - the duck and pork chops were particularly well done. All in all, fast service and really good food.

Gaslight is the absolute best for brunch, I have been for dinner and honestly it was not the best experience but Bruch! Oh Brunch! Everything on the menu is amazing. There is a prix fixe menu that is incredibly affordable and includes a drink for less than 15$. We always bring out of towners here because there is also a... More

Had a late dinner on a Saturday night after arriving in Boston. My friend made reservations for 9PM. I loved the parking lot next door - free parking with validation from Gaslight! When we walked in, we were hit with low lighting and room full of people having a great time. The restaurant was running about 15 minutes behind. No... More
