but I like the description by another reviewer as "international small plates" an eclectic atmosphere and an eclectic collection of dishes from around the world. I thought it was a bit overpriced given the portion sizes. the nice thing about the variety of foods is that if you don't share, then there is something for everyone. For those of you... More

Great quirky atmosphere in this restaurant. There are many delicious small plates, and an interesting and inventive cocktail list. Maybe a little pricey but the quality of the food and the great atmosphere are worth it for a special treat. The staff are dressed in 20s ‘burlesque’ outfits e.g. corsets. We had a reservation and they had even called us... More

We visited restaurant in the end of July. It was Monday and still place was crowded. It was 3 of us, we didn't have reservation. We were sited in a small back room. It was not as loud that allow us to have a conversation. Nice atmosphere. We started with cocktails: HoochieCuchi: muddled sage, rosemary, gin, elderflower liqueur, pomegranate float;... More

Found Cuchi Cuchi by searching reviews on line and it didn't disappoint. Waitresses in flapper outfits. Menu has international small plates that are terrific. Cuban cigar, mushroom risotto, seafood in avocado and fried purple cauliflower in sweet salsa were all fabulous. With teenage son who also loved it. 10 min walk from MIT on Main Street, central sq

You won't be disappointed with this place. Staff is very welcoming and friendly. Food is delicious, you can travel around the world with their many plates (you get to choose a few since it's "tapas" plates style). There's a huge list of original cocktails. Decor is eclectic yet stylish. Loved it!

I love small plates and especially flavors from all over the world. I love the variety for vegetarians and also for those who loves spice. The decor, ambience and servers dressed in old hollywood outfits took us away to another world for an hour or so. My friend and I don't drink and were super delighted to taste the mocktails... More

Brought our daughter here for her 21st birthday celebration! The cocktails are sublime creations beyond the ordinary! The food is exceptionally turned out creations of world menu items that satisfy and inspire the palate. If they have a weakness, it's in the arena of desserts. This could use more thought, although some creations were good. A Tartufo was basic. A... More

I visited this place for my wedding anniversary. The food was delicious and the drinks amazing. Everything we tasted was absolutely magnificent and you must try the mango margarita.

A bar to die for plus amazing food flavors and plate innovations equals the perfect experience. Cuchi Cuchi is one of our favorites and a "must dine" whenever we're in Boston. Easy to find, the wait is never too long, the service is always precise and the drinks are, mostly, one-of-a-kind. You have to see their menu to appreciate what... More

Fun service. Great recommendations from Ksenia. Amazing drinks, food, and atmosphere. We were not expecting or planning this visit, but I'm sure glad we went. Would go back every time in Boston.
