This place serves wonderful, tasty, and unique food with quality service. We have eaten there three times now, and each time was different but equally memorable and delicious. This time we were there for the New Year's Day brunch. The pastries are fresh, tea selection...More

We had the tasting menu: inventive, original, but just not very good. (Well, the oysters were good.) Otherwise, dismal presentation (what's with all the radishes and chopped chives?), bland flavors, small portions, and chaotic service. Cannot recommend. There are many better choices within a 2-mile...More

Yes... I am serious. I'm comparing Loyal Nine to McDonalds. I had a meal at Loyal Nine... the fried beans and duck with a wine pairing. The beans were dry and tasteless. I was hoping for a salad, but there were none on the menu......More

Spacious restaurant with a rustic feel and open kitchen. The dining concept is small plates. If you have a big stomach, you need two plates lol. In general, the food is good, but will only consider going back for their dessert. I must say, this...More

Ok. I went looking for dinner, not a snack. I was advised by my server that the BOLD items were full meals. I ordered the trout, expecting a 1/2 trout as a minimum. It was a 3" sliver of a trout. Good news. it came...More

A truly unique and amazing food experience. Very fresh ingredients, creative combinations and flavors, and excellent service, all centered around a New England-inspired menu. I look forward to returning. I want to amplify the other reviewers who commented on how great the steel-cut oat dish...More

My family and I went for my brother's birthday so we went all in with the shared Supper. We got an even spread of seafood, vegetable, and meat dishes rounded out with a classic New England dessert. Most of the dishes were delicious with everything...More

Terrible service, underwhelming atmosphere, overpriced, menu looks good but the chefs are unable to deliver. We went for brunch and they overcooked the eggs, undercooked the potatoes, everything was bland, the confit was dry! Which is a first for me. Underwhelming from start to finish.

Great find. My husband and I sat outside in a gorgeous evening. Had the shared dinner at $55 each which was heavenly. I love creative local fresh food so it was perfect for me. Delicious oysters and mussels. Loved the steel cut oats with greens....More

I went to this restaurant because of good reviews I found on the Internet. I don't understand why it's getting such good reviews, which urged me to leave my feedbacks. We went to Boston for a graduation and celebrated at this restaurant. We ordered the...More
