We recently had a terrific meal at Petit Robert Central. After finding the proper entrance (on Summer Street, see the sign and go up the escalator) we were welcomed by a friendly hostess and seated at a nice window table. Don't expect a nice view, you're in Downtown Boston. The very efficient and friendly French waitress gave the menus, the busboy came with water and later with a warm demi-baguette with butter. Wine list includes glasses and bottles in the $30 and up range. The menu has a decent selection of continental and french items: we had the onion soup which was excellent and then the steak-frites which was a nice large piece of grilled New York strip steak, topped by parsley butter en-croute and fabulous well cooked and not too salty patates frites. A chocolate mousse and espresso topped off the delicious and ample meal. The waitress came by every once and a while to refill the wine glasses and check up on us, just at the right times. Overall a dining experience which reminded me of a good bistro meal in Paris. Noise level was acceptable when we were there, so I can recommend this place for pre-theatre or a leisurely, well paced dinner.
