Our table was originally booked for 4 people but the kids bailed out, explaining that on our anniversary, we should go on our own. We explained this to out host who was very accommodating and shortly after showing us to our table, handed us two glasses of pink champagne on the house. My wife had the salmon salad starter and...

Lovely, modern restaurant and bar with great and creative food. The service also was friendly and professional. Ask for Bradley and particularly if you are a tea lover, ask him about his passion. The lobster tacos were a hit with both of us. My wife had the scallop main, and I had the parparadelle with sausage. Both excellent. Wine selection... More

This venerable Coolidge Corner seafood restaurant seems to fly under the radar of the Boston foodie scene, but deserves to be in the top 10. Fresh and delicious seafood, with a calm and romantic atmosphere, served by pleasant and efficient, but not intrusive, waitstaff. The three course tasting menu is a delight and a bargain. Did I mention the excellent... More

This is an attractive, friendly restaurant. We called on a Friday evening at 6:00 from the nearby Courtyard Hotel where we were staying. We were told that they were booked until late in the evening. But, they said that they would accommodate us if we came right over. Excellent customer service!. One of us ordered a radish salad that had... More

We met a friend here late afternoon for dinner. The service was exceptional, and the restaurant was clean and inviting (even in the daylight)! We had oysters (amazing), potato/leek soup, and calamari for appetizers. The soup was very good, as well. We ordered the sea bass (I noticed our friend was kind of picking through it), and the lobster brioche... More

always has plenty of fish, well prepared. Nice wine list with good range of prices and good value as well. Quiet enough to be able to have a comfortable conversation over a meal, without shouting, without hearing the other conversations in the room.

I made dinner reservations for a Wednesday night @ 7 pm via Open Table. I requested that they seat us in a more secluded table as it was my boyfriend’s birthday dinner. We arrive around 6:40 and sat at the bar to take advantage of the $1 from 5-7 pm. We tried a sample of a bubbling wine and red... More
