I contributed to Community Servings, here in Boston for Thanksgiving, and received the best pumpkin pie I have ever eaten. I will definitely re-visit this restaurant and wanted to add that they enclosed a $20 gift card.

The menu doesn't look like much but don't let that fool you. First of all it's in the classy Lenox "boutique" hotel....We all had something different, burger, chicken dish, pizza and ramen. Nothing at all to complain about everything was delicious and dessert was to die for...They had a amores dessert on the menu that was just about the best... More

The wait staff was able to modify the salmon dish to meet my needs. It was delicious. My husband had the veal special which he also enjoyed. The... More

My colleagues and I came to City Table two times during our stay in Boston for business. We tried to come on an earlier night and they were closed for a private party - would have been nice to have this posted on the website since we walked there and didn't know until we saw a sign on the door....

Very nice classy place to eat with wonderful service. My wife had a very large omelet and I had two over easy eggs that were well prepared. The food came out fairly quickly and the staff was friendly.

We were staying at the Marriott Courtyard right across the street so we were glad to find this restaurant to be so good. It is part of the Lenox Hotel, but anyone can eat here. Friends told us breakfast was really good too. A great choice.

We had a great meal at City Table, preceded by good cocktails at the adjacent City Bar. The room is cool, the menu offers a wide range of choices, and everything we ate was delicious. Our server, Alona S, was charming and attentive, and we were lucky to meet the excellent manager, Maddy, who obviouslly keeps everything running well. So... More

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
