“Excellent food and service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2009

My husband and I dined here for our 2 year anniversary during Boston Restaurant Week. We could choose from a pre-selected menu for $33/pp or their whole menu. We decided to do a bit of both. The staff was very attentive and seated us in a beautiful spot overlooking the harbor.

Our food was outstanding and the portions were fair, not over the top and not miniscule. I was happy for that. The waiter was very knowledgeable and came by to check on us frequently. The atmosphere was nice, rather quiet but it was a Monday night. We would certainly eat there again.

“Fabulous Bread basket....horrible food, added the tip to our party of 4.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2008

The bread basket was fabulous and definately the high light! We went with another couple during resturant week. The food was all served room temperature and steak tasted like mesquite flavored spray. The server was yelling across the resturant for silverware, told us the wine we wanted "is out but i guess i'll check", and they ADDED the tip (18%) to our party of FOUR? Is this legal?
