I lived the heart of Boston for a couple years and was nervous when I bought a condo on the outskirts of the city – part of that nervousness was that I was unsure I’d be able to find the same quality restaurants, bars and eateries as I did when I lived in the city. I was pleasantly surprised to... More

My wife and I went with another couple prior to attending an event in Boston. The pre-dinner drinks were well made and delicious. The tapas appetizer plate was amazing. We all ordered entrees and even though we were a bit on the early side, i.e. 5:30, dinner took a bit of time to come out of the kitchen. It was... More

It was Mother's Day (2013 - your drop down only covered 2014) - I wanted to treat my hard working and wonderful daughter to Mother's Day lunch - The Exchange advertises frequently and often - and had a "special" Mother's Day menu - We brought my hard to please granddaughter with us - she is not easily pleased.

I've been a fan of this restaurant since my daughter was a waitress here and we come here for many special occasions. The food is always delicious and served well, we love the long-time servers and the martinis are the best in the area. Although they have rotated through several chefs this restaurant works hard to keep the menus interesting... More

Went for dinner the other night, service was good & the food was decent. We started with the bruschetta which was phenomenal. I wish we had ordered 2 because it was so good. My flatbread pizza was more of just an individual pizza, not really a flatbread. It was okay, not sure if I would order it again. My passion... More

I'm always surprised to see the huge ads in the Boston Globe for this place? Why do they need to advertise so much? It's a nice place. Good food and an interresting space. I guess it's because it's in Malden... Not a town known for it's dining. My only problem? Every time we go all the tv's around the bar... More

With the exception of the sweet potatoes being VERY undercooked, our meal last night was excellent- the bruschetta is light and delicious, a tangy sweetness to the tomato, the melted cheese just perfect- not even overly salty as so many places prepare their food nowadays. The steak- excellent, and mashed potatoes, too. Seared tuna well prepared. The ice cream sandwich... More

Went with 12 people, had a room in the back for parties. The appetizers and main meal was excellent along with the service. Since they had other parties it was a little but loud but the food was worth it.
