Best of the best just got better!Troquet continues to up the ante on delivering the perfect dining experience. New entrees, fantastic service and a knock your socks off wine list won't disappoint!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful place!A beautiful experience right in the theater district, overlooking the park! Fresh churned butter, beautiful and inventive seasonal menu keeps rotating so there are always some new surprises. Spring asparagus (French white and green) with yummy Morel mushrooms, New Zealand langoustines on top of papaya salad were crispy and flavorful, and the halibut main dish with forbidden rice and kafir lime foam spiced just right were amazing. All farm fresh, locally sourced and a great selection of small plates/entrees. We were in a rush and the wait staff totally made it work! Truly impressive wine list and the best part is that they also have some of these great wines by the glass/wine flights, so you can enjoy as much wine and variety as you want.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed ourselvesTroquet is a terrific little out of the way spot that is really right there in plain view.
Once you have found it, you'll never let it go!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulousOur meal was spectacular. The best butter anywhere in this country. My husband said his soup was the best he'd ever had. Very attentive waitstaff. You need a category above for the best place pre-theater or musical performance. And Troquet is it!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love eating out in Boston.We love eating out in Boston.

We cannot wait to go back!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dinner - we lovedWonderful dinner - we loved both of our meals. Great wine selection and beautiful view of the Common.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSeriously! Go to Troquet &Seriously! Go to Troquet & get the wild boar. The wild boar entree was outrageous - my husband had it for dinner, and as much as I loved my lobster entree, I wished he hadn't given me a bite of his. It made me jealous the whole time we were eating! No really, though - Troquet is always great, and this was no exception.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful view of the BostonBeautiful view of the Boston Common. One of the best French restaurants in Boston in my opinion.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding dining experienceExcellent food, one of the best anywhere, mixed with perfect service - not too intrusive, but always available when you needed something. Dessert menu is incredible as well. Perfect place, especially if you like fine wine with your meal. We flew into Boston just for this restaurant and to meet some clients, and troquet was perfect. We will be back.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experience!My husband and I took my son, his girlfriend and one of his BC friends for dinner on Sunday, after attending a concert that my son and his friend performed in at Boston Symphony Hall. We arrived at approximately 5 p.m. and were seated promptly. We all enjoyed amazing appetizers including two orders of the braised Spanish octopus, two duck confit salads and a beet salad. All were scrumptious! For dinner we ordered two orders of the chicken Giannone, one Dover Sole, one Branzino and one Rice-crusted halibut. Again, all of the dinners were delectable! For dessert we split a souffle and a pineapple macaroon napoleon. We thoroughly enjoyed our entire experience and look forward to more celebrations at Troquet.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great experience at TroquetGroup of four, following my previous experiences we all got the 5 course meal with wine pairing. As per my previous experiences here, the food was amazing. I can confidently state that the absolute best meals I've ever eaten in my life were at Troquet. It's also one of the few places (that I've been to) where the wine pairings range from good to perfect. If you've never eaten food that was elegantly enhanced by the paired wine, you need to try out this restaurant!
Other valuable notes: great fresh bread, homemade fresh butter, attentive wait staff, and unbelievable food. It is a smaller restaurant, so you'll want to make reservations in advance. But I got our 5 pm Saturday reservation on Friday morning.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWine lovers paradiseTroquet has one of the best wine lists in Boston with offerings available by the glass. I've never been anywhere else in the world where you could buy a glass of Chateau d'Yquem by the glass (Wine lovers will know what this means!). The food is creative and outstanding. The Cauliflower soup was ridiculously good. The sliced duck breast paired with duck confit was truly amazing, each perfectly cooked.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Night OutFirst time here and for a special occasion. The staff was very accommodating honoring our request for a window table and helping when we needed to change our reservation time. We look forward to another evening there when we are in Boston.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely restaurant, professionalLovely restaurant, professional staff, civilized dining experience, excellent food.
My only quibble would be the noise and the need to promote the culture of cozy conversation. I was with a party of 4, on a Friday, 7:30 rez, so the place was hopping. Our table felt 2" too wide for a easy conversation - had to work at listening. Smaller tables would have solved that.
Conversation is undervalued in the American restaurant experience in my opinion - and I am an American. Since you've got your "lively bar' experience downstairs, what's to stop you from softening the upstairs abit?
Just thoughts from someone who's eaten there twice..but will return.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great dinner forWe had a great dinner for two; the suckling pig was outstanding and my wife's fish was perfect. The wine list is appropriately and not obscenely priced, with some good values. I would go again.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPricey but delicious. I lovedPricey but delicious. I loved sitting by the window and looking at the snow-covered Common. I appreciated that they offer 2 oz and 4 oz pours of wine. Even though I am not a big drinker, I was able to have red with my appetizer and white with the entree. The chocolate souffle was fantastic - rich and gooey. My husband wanted another!3/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
