We had been in Boston for six days and decided on our last night to have a drink and early dinner before packing.
My wife had a "dirty martini", perfectly prepared, and I had a martini straight up. Good size martini's. My wife had oysters, fresh and quite good, and I had the golden chowder, an excellent preparation of the traditional Boston Clam Chowder without the potatoes. Very satisfying. I had the paella negra (black rice, calamari, chorizo, sofrito, & saffron aioli), very creative and tasty, and my wife had a gluten free meal, a very satisfying tossed lobster salad. We each had a glass of wine, a Pighin and a Wither Hills, both quite good.
I noticed that some reviewers have remarked on the cost of eating here, and I would note that we are paying for the comfort of the restaurant (what a pleasure to eat in the restaurant where the tables are set comfortably far apart, and the carpeted room enables one to carry on a conversation easily without raised voices), the quality of the food, the service and the location (there are floor to ceiling windows looking on to the street and the Boston Garden, very pleasant). So while the cost is high, the value is there, it seems to me. For example, dinner at the Cafe at the Taj Hotel, in the same area, costs about the same but doesn't compare satisfactorily on the other bases mentioned above.
I recommend this restaurant to anyone in this general area who is interested in a high quality meal served in a pleasant environment.
