Came here after my graduationCame here after my graduation but got to the restaurant early- everyone was accommodating. The food was delicious and our service was excellent and professional. My family had a great time, will definitely be back!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place with great decorThis place is great. Seasonal food with interest combined with the best rasberri martini
ever.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing serviceWe had the best service here - the host staff was incredibly nice and accommodating, didn't rush us to sit or make us wait for our entire party to sit. Wait staff and bar staff were very nice as well, and they have a great cocktail list. The only downside is that there's no food service in the patio area, which is so lovely that we would have liked to sit there for dinner, but overall a great experience at rustic kitchen.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLate for DinnerWe were stuck in traffic and were 30 minutes late for our reservation before going to the threatre. It was a Thursday night and so it wasn't really busy yet, and we were seated right away. We ordered quickly and our entrees were rushed and brought out in 10 minutes flat. The bologna pasta was excellent, and my roasted pear salad with grilled chicken was just what I needed.
I would like to go back and have a more leisurely dinner, but we were grateful for the quick services.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place!This is definitely a go-to restaurant to meet friends, for a special occasion, to end a busy day. The food is consistently wonderful and the vibe is friendly.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAmbiance was very nice andAmbiance was very nice and notable. The food was enjoyable.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBravoI reserved The Rustic Kitchen for a graduation/Mother's Day brunch. Graduation lasted an hour beyond my estimate and the restaurant was still able to accommodate. The food/drinks were fabulous as was the service. I would highly recommend for any occasion.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticWe were a party of 9 and every person at the table had excellent food. The fig-stuffed gnocchi was superb!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining!We had a great meal. Atmosphere was nice. Service was impeccable (thank you, Danny!). Food was great. Looking forward to going again the next time we are in Boston!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, OK foodThye ambience of Rustic Kitchen is better than many of Boston's finest restaurants and my server was exceptional. We ordered mussels for a shared appetizer, and they were excellent but came drizzled with a generous helping of aioli, which my daughter doesn't like. I had the cod, which came on a bed of mussels and chowder that was exceptionally tasty. But the cod itself came encased in a thick, hard batter-crust that totally overpowered the codfish inside. Despite the outstanding service and ambience, I gave it three stars because the overall rating of a restaurant can't be better than the food.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversaryIt was our 26 anniversary
The restaurant was very accommodating
Not only was it a great atmosphere , but our
Waiter gave us 2 glasses of champagne and
After dessert 2 cups of cappochino both complimentary
He said it was to help us on our journey which I
Thought was a sweet way of putting it.
We have gone here before and after this experience
Will make sure it remains in our top selections of Boston
Restaurants.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMCulinary Excellence !My wife and I dined here after a Blue man matinee so we hd the place to ourselves. Great ambiance as we sat in semicircular banquettes. we started with a fig, caramelized onion and arugula pizza that was spectacular. my wife had short ribs strganoff that was rich, creamy and tyhe ribs were tender and very tasy. i had a pasta bognese in a tomato cream sauce that was delicious. We were both too full for desert and took the rest of the stroganoff home and had it for lunch two days later, excellent !.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ate here the night beforeWe ate here the night before the Boston Marathon so even though the menu was limited, the food was excellent and our waiter was very helpful and never made us feel rushed even though there was a seemingly endless stream of people coming in. Will definitely come here again before the next Boston Marathon!!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe calamari was great. IThe calamari was great. I had the roasted pear with gorgonzola and steak salad and it was amazing. How can I re create this at home?
My husband had the veal meatloaf, he liked it alot and I tasted it and it was wondeful too.
A great choice.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMVeal meatloaf sandwich wasVeal meatloaf sandwich was tender, with sweet and tangy b-b-q sauce. fish chowder was rich and warming on a rainy afternoon.
The restaurant was quiet-- I came in at 1:30. I overheard one table tell the waiter they had been in the night before and came back that day.
One slightly off-putting note: I ordered the Balvenie 21 ( fine single malt) for dessert, and the waiter asked if I wanted it on the rocks. Neat should be the default for top shelf4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood ExperienceAte here before a show at the Boston Opera House. The food and service were both very good. I had the stuffed chicken, beautiful presentation and tasted good too. Husband had the lamb special which was also delicious. Overall great experience and we'd return. We parked in the Stuart St garage adjacent to the restaurant and they validated our parking. So only $10 to park for dinner and the show for the whole evening.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding visit.

We arrived earlier than most dinner patrons that night so that we were sure to get a nice relaxing meal before the concert. From the moment we walked in the door, we were treated like royalty. The ambiance was great and the staff was amazing. Our waiter, Danny, was phenominal and took great care of us. My partner and I both ordered some wine and then we ecah ordered the Surf n Turf special - the food was mouth watering! It included two sides which made the entire meal seem humongous! The entire meal - (2) Surf n Turf specials and (2) glasses of wine each seemed a little bit pricey @$135.00, but the evening was a special ocassion. Great place - we will be back!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had very good food. TheWe had very good food. The wait staff was attentive and the food delicious.

They even called our home about it, but we were already gone. The matrade and very helpful, the waiter knowledgible and friendly and the food was very good and plentiful. We got out in plenty of time for the show, even after getting lost. We highly recommend this Rustic Kitchen. Park in the Revere Parking Garage and they comp you $ 10.00. A nice touch we found out by accident. Oh, the restaurant enterance is off the garage's entry ramp. We missed the street side enterance several times.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI didn't know what to expectI didn't know what to expect being the first time,but it was a great experiance,the seafood tower for 2 was enough for 4.
