My wife and I had heard for a while this place was great. Unfortunately that was not the experience we had. It took about 15 minutes after being seated just for someone to give us menus and that was the pace for the service the entire night. In addition we were told the chef recommends steaks be cooked medium rare... More

I've eaten here several times and have always been a fan of their food. After a fantastic Valentine's day dinner, I felt it deserved a review. We were seated in the wine cellar, which was perfectly intimate with only 5 other tables set for couples. The decor wasn't overdone, but we appreciated the fresh roses that were set out. The...

Ate by myself but did not feel weird being alone. Ordered a steak and plenty of martini's. All were perfect.

We stayed at the XV Beacon and ate at Moo twice and had room service from there as well. The food is very good and the service was excellent. Very attentive and not intrusive.

Following my second visit to this pithily named restaurant I wanted to comment on how incredible this establishment truly is in the collection of great Boston Steak Houses. True, I have only experienced lunch here (so far) but I can tell you that I feel this is one of the finest restaurants to which I have enjoyed. First, for those... More

The food is always good at Mooo but I always find it to be very loud and hard to maintain a conversation. My wife and I went for New Years Day Brunch. The food was great and the service was good only to a fellow server in the area that was more attentive than our server. Our server seemed like... More

My wife and I had an excellent meal; first class steak dinner, with wonderful Duckhorn wine (Pardaux). We were staying at the hotel and found the staff to be very friendly.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
