There is nothing garden-like about this bistro on Mass. Ave. It is conveniently located, but that is about its only real virtue. We stopped there for dinner, ate so-so burgers, fish and pasta and drank a bottle of luke-warm white wine. When I complained about...More

We came here because of all the positive reviews, and while the food is good, the menu is VERY limited. Be sure to check it out before you seat. If you do like what they have you won't be disappointed, my wife however did not...More

I highly recommend the beet sliders with rosemary truffle fries. One of the best lunches around. And the staff are friendly and quick.

I saw this place ranked four stars on Yelp, so I figured it was at least safe. When I walked in and saw standard gastropub seating and a dark and dingy-looking kitchen area, I became somewhat disheartened. The menu piqued my interest, as it was...More

Garden at the Cellar has a very simple and rather small bar interior with only a few tables, very bare-bones. The food, however, is excellent – everything on the menu looks tempting, and the two small courses I had (scallops, butter-poached lobster) were very high quality,...More
