I think this is the most underrated restaurant in the city. We had dinner here last Friday evening and found the restaurant surprisingly slow. My husband & I had a fabulous evening here. We started our dinner w/ a couple of apps, lump crab cake & ahi tuna tartar. Both were delicious! I then had a wonderful glazed chicken w/ oyster stuffing & my husband enjoyed his grilled Scottish salmon. We also shared a bottle of really good French wine. Service, Gianfranco, was most excellent, and the price was just right. We just couldn't understand why this restaurant wasn't busy. It certainly exceeded our expectations on every level. Perhaps most people aren't aware that this is a full service restaurant despite their name, The Café. We'll be back!

From start to finish we were treated very well. The food was delicious, including the appatizer and dessert samples which they brought to us on the house. The host and our waitress treated us so well, and were attentive. We will return another time.

The lobster cobb salad was
The lobster cobb salad was excellent, and the crab cakes benedict were very nice, as well. Service was excellent, and it was fun watching the crowds of dog-walkers on Newbury Street. It was my husband's birthday, and they brought a lovely little dessert with birthday candle. Just a very pleasant place for a relaxing brunch.

Attention to detail
Came for dinner early on Monday night. The servers and host were extremely attentive and professional. Has a beet salad and tikki masala, all excellent. The staff even allowed us to split the second glass if wine as we both had to drive.
The atmosphere was elegant without bring pretentous. Will definitely be back.

Amazing Old School Service
We were looking for a place to take our pre-teen children to challenge their manners in a fine dining setting. The Cafe @ Taj was the perfect setting. They have continued the classic dining service level started by the Ritz. The service was seamless, friendly and unobtrusive. The food was very good and they made any accommodation that was requested. We couldn't have asked for a more calm, classic and smooth experience. Would definitely return. Oh and the kids performed stunningly!

The Café impressed us tonight. First off, we had Gianfranco from the old Ritz serving us. The sole with lobster was excellent. Hope to return again soon!

Who Needs To Go To India For Brunch
The Taj Cafe offers standard, yet high quality brunch items, but the reason to go there is for the Indian portion of the menu, with its inventive, carefully spiced and delicious choices. The crab curry is not to be missed! Delicately balanced spicing and no chili, made it a perfect choice for something dxotic on an American palate. Their specials were also deliciously inspired.. I recommend it highly for the food and the expert, friendly yet non-intrusive service.

High class, good food and service
everything tasted great - even the drinks were among the strongest I've had (especially dangerous at lunch)
Crowd was a bit on the older side though - this being a Friday late lunch before a long holiday weekend. Not for the younger crowd

The food we chose, the scallop
The food we chose, the scallop special, lobster risotto, watermelon cucumber salad, and orange mango mousse was unique, delicious, and artistically served.

my guest, an indian woman, commented that the food, indian, tasted home-made, which we considered the highest form of praise, and well-deserved. a total treat for all.

I first went alone and had one of the best clam chowders ever. Returned a week later to have another go. The clam chowder was good but not as good as the first night. The curries delighted guests and the scallops were divine. The room is beautifully decorated and the noise level is civilized. For a lovely evening when you can talk to your guests this should be high on your list.

The table clothes are gone at dinner, placemat take their place. Sad, it 's more like in a bistro, than fine dining.
T pie has been moved
Also, the tradition chicken to the lounge.
The food and service is still outstanding, but changes are sad at this Boston institution.

One of the Best in Boston
I have rave reviews of the Taj. I love the food, the service and the ambience each time I go. It is my favorite restaurant in Boston.

The Cafe at Taj Boston is a gem that all locals and visitors alike should experience. The atmosphere is a beautifully decorated respite and the view onto Newbury Street is great for people watching. The menu has been updated to include made to order Indian specialties while still offering sophisticated New England classics. The service is attentive but not overbearing.
