We always think of The Cottage for a special brunch. Selections are varied, fresh, tasty-both breakfast type dishes and lunch specials.

When you're not in the mood to cook and looking for a convenient alternative to "take out delivery", The Cottage is the place to go. It's not a special occasion restaurant nor is it a gourmet restaurant, but the food is reliably solid and there is a wide variety of choice to please even the largest of groups that meet... More

Great seasonal food with a menu that changes. Fish, meat, poultry, vegetarian. Seasonal fruits and veggies. All served nicely. Good wine and cocktail selection

We've been here many times and do like the place. We usually go there with kids and they always take the burgers, which are good. We also came for dinner with friends a few times, and it was good as well. The place is friendly, can accommodate large parties and offers many healthy and yummy choices. Their non-alcohol cocktails are... More

We went here with another couple on a Friday night. Several of us ordered salads, which were quite good. We arrived a little late, but did not feel rushed to finish our meal. Dessert was excellent. Service (e.g., refilling drinks) could have been a little better. Prices were very reasonable. We liked the restaurant and will return.

We headed over today for a relaxing brunch and ordered omelettes. What a disparity in size! My plate had a tiny omelette with a baby cup of chilled fruit and my hubby had an omelette that was twice the size of mine, with home fries and a muffin.... AND they were the EXACT same price! I left hungry and he... More

I visited a few weeks ago for Sunday Brunch with some out of town visitors. I thought The Cottage would impress them but the quality of the food was SO POOR that I was dreadfully embarrassed. My sister ordered the Mahi tacos which she said were completely unseasoned and tasteless. The other meals were of very poor quality, too. My... More

Ate dinner here on a Friday night. Fortunately, the restaurant was not terribly crowded. Sadly, the food was poor and the service was worse. We waited 30 minutes for drink that we ultimately canceled. of course, a few minutes after we canceled the drink, the server brought it. The ceasar salad we were served did not resemble any ceasar salad... More

Eight of our family were at the Cottage in Chestnut Hill for a family birthday celebration for Saturday evening on October 8. I found the food highly overpriced for the quality and quantity. My one lonely crab cake was on the plate for $14. My wife's Baby Kale Salad with roasted vegetables at $11 was clearly not baby kale as... More

I was here with a friend for dinner. The service was good, however the food was ok. In fact I think that the Wellesley has better food. I did enjoy my evening, however it is pricey for the food that is being offered

Thank New O
