Great food, drinks, wine and beer selection.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot, never failsIt's my 3rd time here, and I've never been let down, not one bit. Great food, california-style gourmet that is upscaled but not over priced. The menu is very extensive and I want to try everything on it, every single time. Extensive drink menu as well including wines and beers. Clean, fresh feeling throughout the decor and in regards to the dishes themselves. Staff are very friendly. Located in a fun, clean, upbeat area in Chestnut Hill/Newton. The new "Street" walking retail area is fantastic.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great, waitress wasFood was great, waitress was excellent and we loved the atmosphere!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe recently found The CottageWe recently found The Cottage on open table and we loved it, we can not wait to go back again4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMReunion of 3 women...60 years laterGreeted by a friendly welcoming staff.

We tried some of the new items on the menu and enjoyed everything.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMexceptional service with yummy foodSome stand outs for me is the service and food. This restaurant welcomes children of any age. The service was timely, professional and seamless. You could see and sense their team work! The food is always yummy. The menu has much to offer and the ambiance is light and airy. Although there was a fair amount of noise it was not too noisy-just festive. There is a room out back where they can accommodate a group. I love the bar as you walk into the restaurant. It is a good size with a few high tops for dining. It is large enough to provide a welcoming experience to those who are looking for the bar. I have been to this location for lunch and dinner with family and also with friends and their babies. Always a terrific time and yummy experience!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good food, friendlyConsistently good food, friendly service and attractive environment.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily Brunch FavoriteWe really like the Chestnut Hill location. The food is good, the service is very pleasant. Even when a mistake was made they took care of it right away. LOVE the ahi tuna nachos! We don't live in the area but we end up having brunch at the Cottage whenever we're in town to see relatives.

The food is excellent -- everything tastes fresh and clean, and is beautifully presented -- and there's something for everyone, whether appetites are small (soup, salads, sandwiches, quiche) or large. The ambiance is grown up and relaxing, with well-spaced tables and low noise levels, and the service surprisingly professional, given the suburban location and youthfulness of the staff.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMYumThis was my second visit to The Cottage. Lovely atmosphere, delicious food, excellent service. This visit was for lunch, and I had one of their Big Salads called New World Chicken. Scrumptious. There were three of us, and we shared a chocolate cake for desert. It came with a side dish of ice cream and another side of chocolate fudge. Heaven. Highly recommended.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant has a senseThis restaurant has a sense of happiness with their beautiful paintings hanging on the walls.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, great bar!SO Yummy!!

Usually go to their location in Wellesley- decided to try their Chestnut Hill location. Fabulous! The menu selection is varied, service was great (very knowledgable wait staff) food preparation and quality outstanding. Would recommend to any diner looking for a Chestnut Hill neighborhood dining experience.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of our family favoritesThe Cottage is incredibly kid-friendly and yet has a strong following from crowds without kids as well. We've gone at all different times for brunch, lunch and dinner and The Cottage always seems to be doing a pretty good business. We have rarely been disappointed with our food and the service is one of the friendliest in around. This place was our Friday night family dinner staple for a long time.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
