Terrific service and a greatTerrific service and a great outdoor dining feel in the south end. The food is French, well prepared, and all good, just not particularly remarkable.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, easy parking!This was my second time eating here, both times with wonderful food and service. We had a party of 7 this time, celebrating a birthday. The escargot, fondue, pasta special, tuna, mussels were all big hits. The waitress was great. She noted the birthday card on the table and brought over some molten chocolate cake for the birthday girl. It was so good and prompted a few more orders of the cake for others in our group. The other bonus is the free parking in the lot next to the restaurant. Where else can you find that in the South End!! We'll be back.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Mediterranean foodVisited on a Monday night with my mother. We ordered 3 mezze (muhammara special, octopus, chickpea terrine) and 1 entree (lamb). Enjoyed every dish, but couldn't pick a favorite from them, which might be a good sign that all top-quality. Octopus was particularly impressive, as it's so hard to get right. Our server was very gracious--attentive, but not intrusive, and wonderful at offering recommendations. (Helped select a great glass of Lebanese red--who knew?) Finished w/ an almond milk gelato which was the perfect mix of "sweet/rich enough to count as dessert, but light enough for the end of a summer meal." Reservation backlog always makes it a challenge getting in here, but hope to return.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Gaslight ExperienceWe enjoyed a delightful dinner at Gaslight. We started with cocktails, selecting them from Gaslight's featured cocktail menu. For starters, we had beet and walnut salad and kale salad. Both were fine choices. Dinner selections included steak frites and rotisierre chicken. Again, both were nicely prepared selections. The atmosphere is very French, warm, and inviting. Our server was exceptional, friendly, and attentive.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMEarly-bird bargainOne of the best-kept secrets in town is Gaslight's early-bird prix-fixe. Steak (excellent), chicken (very good) or trout (sublime!) with an appetizer (great onion soup and tow other choices) plus dessert and a complimentary glass of wine for under $30. It's a steal. And Gaslight is more fun to be at than most other places in town.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good. some new items,Always good. some new items, which were quite tasty.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch with Elderly ParentsWe recently had brunch at Gaslight with our elderly parents and aunt. The average age was about 86. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The waiter was engaging. I wish I could remember his name. He was wearing black rectangular glasses.
Everyone enjoyed their food. Having the parking lot next door made for easy drop off and pick up. I am looking forward to going back. Thanks to everyone at Gaslight for an enjoyable and delicious brunch!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGood and SolidThe bar is a great place to wait or even dine as the service is excellent. The dining room is bright with high ceilings. The service was a little slow on this particular day and it did bother one of our guests. It didn't help that his meal was also incorrect. It was addressed and fixed in short order, but this particular person won't be back. I will be though because the brunch was excellent, the drinks classic, and the vibe very friendly. Relaxing and long dinners here are excellent as well.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPatio is a hidden gemFor summer dining in the South End, Gaslight is at the top of my list. The patio offers is off the street but still affords a nice view of the neighborhood.The tables are generously spaced, so the noise level is low. Great food, good beverage list, attentive service.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMYum, yum and yum!We went to Gaslight simply because I'd walked by and thought it looked nice inside. I had also read some good reviews. We were not disappointed. The service was on point. Not only was our waiter attentive, knowledgable and personable, but the bus-boys (is that what you'd call them?) constantly refilled our waters and brought us fresh bread and butter. The cocktails were quite good. The escargot was yummy. My meal of the braised rabbit pasta was incredible. And my boyfriend liked his dish very much as well, although I can't remember at the moment what he ordered. We both left very happy, and will certainly return. The prices were also very reasonable.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBefore the PopsWanted to go to Gaslight for awhile. Finally went before the Pops. Wonderful drink at the bar and then seated in a booth. Service was excellent and fun. Food was terrific. Had Pork belly and the most delicious tasty potaties for an app, the Prixe- salad, Steak Frites and a wonderful Apple Cake with vanilla bean ice cream and caramel sauce. A wonderful evening. Can't wait to go back. Have already recommended to friends and family!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWeeknightGaslight is so hospitable. It is so convenient and a "go to" place for a weekend night and yet, they always make the evening special. we had a great time!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Very Good!We return time and time again to this outstanding South End establishment. Great food and service. No complaints except that parking is difficult on Sunday afternoons.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food & ServiceIn a group of five, everyone was satisfied with their drinks, dishes and desserts. Our waitress took time to explain things when we had questions and made recommendations. We were there for several hours and never felt rushed. Also, helpful was the big parking lot for the restaurant right next door for free. Overall, good experience and I do plan to go back.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a hitHad some co-workers from miami visiting Boston -- me and another coworker suggested Gaslight as a good place for them to eat while in the city, and it turned into all of us going out for dinner. The Manager kindly put a table for our larger group together, the waitress who help us was amazingly fun and friendly, despite our antics, and the food made a huge impression on our guests. He ordered the pork chop and was blown away. All of our food was amazing, and half the group who hadn't been to gaslight previously were all impressed from our great drinks down to the nice atmosphere and kind staff. I've never been disappointed.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMStill great, smaller portions!I am a huge fan of this one - especially b/c of the free parking in the South End, BUT you have to make a reso to be sure of a table. One downside: hadn't been there in probably 6 months or so, and the portions have clearly gotten smaller during that time. Still delicious and enough to be filling, but definitely less food for the same price.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as always!Once again, an awesome meal and great service. However, a staff member jacked the lights up and it changed the atmosphere. Our bartender tried to get him to turn the lights down, but I heard him say he walked into a trash can, so it was some sort of safety issue. It was near closing time so we understood. Interrogation lights aside it was great as usual.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother hit with Gaslight!I went to Gaslight for brunch to celebrate my birthday. We had made a reservation but when we got there, the place was packed. Fortunately, they opened a table up for us and were seated quickly. Our waiter was friendly, professional and very capable. It was a hard decision on what to choose from the menu since everything looked great. We ordered the croissant basket which went over big with the table. I ordered a crepe that was out of this world. Even though the restaurant was busy, our server never rushed us and allowed us to enjoy ourselves. A great time was had by all and between the service and the food, I couldn't have had a better birthday!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great time.Love the prefix brunch special. Delicious food for a great price! Will definetly be going back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBistro with high marks.It's not fancy but has that perfect combination of casual yet you still get cloth napkins, a proper wine glass and knowledgable attentive service. The booths are very cozy. And the food is stellar. Had the pork hash with fried egg and croque Madame and split with my dining partner. Ask for a bit of their lime aioli to add another level of unctuous brightness of flavor on the hash.
Chocolate beniets are hot and molten inside. It's all good. Next time will try the French onion soup with short rib.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHAPPY BIRTHDAYTwo people celebrating birthdays were recognized and honored by the staff - not only by our waitress but everyone we came into contact with. Our server, Kelly, did an excellent job and when a piece of lamb was chewy it was immediately attended to and a replacement dish brought, on the house.
We have been several times and were really made most welcome and allowed to celebrate two birthdays in a perfect way. Apart from the piece of lamb, all of the food was excellent and the wine was great.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFun French bistro!This is a great classic French bistro--lovely food, good wine and cocktails, great desserts. Try the creme brûlée or molten chocolate cake--you won't be dissapointed! I had the special, which was delicious; my mom said her croque monsieur reminded her of Paris. Atmosphere is great, if a little loud; very cool place!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBest pork chop I've had inBest pork chop I've had in a long time.

Active vib, perfect service, and I love those mussels and the cone of fries.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Favorite RestaurantI repeat, this is my favorite restaurant! The hostess was very gracious and courteous even when there was a mix up with our seat. The manager was very vigilent and on the ball when a member of my party was cutting the loaf of bread with great difficulty - dull knife. He swiftly took it away and brought back the nicely and evenly sliced french baguette. That is what I call service! They really make an effort to ensure that their patrons have an all-around enjoyable evening.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGaslight was a great find.Gaslight was a great find. Parking is always the problem in the city but they have solved the issue with parking next door. Food was excellent and the service top notch. Brunch menu was exciting and varied making it well worth another visit to try one of the other items.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMy next to last visit to GaslightMy next to last visit to Gaslight was disappointing, but Gaslight has bounced back. The food is first rate, the service excellent, considerate and thoughtful, and the whole atmosphere is a complete delight. Can't wait to go back.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceWe had a wonderful time! Great food, friendly atmosphere and the service was attentive and personal. When our entree was late in arriving Adam was at our table, very apologetic for the wait but we were enjoying our conversation so much with the next table that we hadn't really noticed! When our entrees arrived they were outstanding. Complimentary desserts were offered! At the end of the evening we requested a cab and it was remarkably there waiting for us as we left! We'll be back with friends!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood place to VisitMeal was good, our waiter, Brian was great, Parking was easy - what else is there4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't Miss GaslightThe food was excellent. Beet salad was unusualy taty and creatively presented. Steak tartare was expertly prepared. Our party had rack of lamb, steak frites and mussels. All were surprised at how great everything tasted; servings were very fair and not too big (but we did not have room to try any of the great looking deserts). Most notable was the great service we received from host to winter and busses. A manager or host checked in with us periodically throughout the meal to make sure everything was going well -- and it all was. Convenient raking and very cool set inside..4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful meal, great service,Wonderful meal, great service, easy parking.
