This is a Eastern European style restaurant and a Eastern European pace. If you're in a hurry, you're at the wrong place. If you want a lengthy dinner atmosphere ripe for conversation, then Boon has you covered. My partner and I had a nice 2 hour dinner and the place wasn't at capacity. Try the stuffed cabbage app and pork... More

Lived in the area, so I dined or took out food from here a few times. The food is good, not excellent. I liked the soups the most. The restaurant is going for a more rustic vibe inside, so if you're looking for a modern look, you'll be disappointed. They also have tables and chairs outside if you prefer outside... More

The restaurant was empty ,no wonder, the server Florian was rushing us and not very friendly and it took a while for the food to be ready. I haven't eaten Romanian... More

I was really surprised to find that all the dishes I tried had an authentic Romanian taste. I highly recommend the place both because it offers quality and delicious food but also because it has a nice atmosphere. Nice music and nice people around.

We took friends to this restaurant for a special occasion.So very disappointed. The initial lack of greeting by the waitress,such indifference,made us want to walk out.We should have. Both the lack of presentation and quality of the food reflected in our friends facial expressions. We were polite and said thank you so many times to the waitress to try and... More

Very authentic food and Romanian beer and wine. The appetizers might just be better than the main dishes. Great atmosphere with live Romanian music.

My wife and I enjoyed our Sunday night visit. Food was very good and portions were generous. The salad was very tasty. The background music was an interesting variety ranging from Engelbert Humperdinck to a lesser known ABBA song. We will go again.
