We never received our appetizer, one meal was completely wrong, sent it back to fix and never ever got it. Waitress didn’t care, she just abandoned us. I would NEVER go back there. Worst experience ever!!

We met friends for an early dinner before the big snow storm and artic blast and we were well taken care of by the staff and had a great window seat. Food was very good... two of us had fish and chips which were generous in portion and very tasty. two others had salads with protein on top which were nicely done. Overall, very good and we enjoyed our nice relaxed time in this great neighborhood spot.

Hadn’t been to 75 Chestnut in 8 years. Really enjoyed it. Great ambience and you could actually hear your table partner’s conversation. So rare in today’s newer restaurants. Warm, friendly service. Food was good, not great. But overall, a gem on the Flat of the Hill.

Would have given this five stars on everything but the our table was near the door and it was a frigid night. Every time the door opened we got a blast of cold air. In other seasons it is probably not an issue. Also the parking is a problem. We were lucky and found a spot on Chestnet that didn't seem to be resident parking and as it was Sunday night there were no meter maids. Charles Street parking is almost impossible so the only other choice seems to be the garage at park. Difficult but not impossible.

I read great reviews about this restaurant and chose it for dinner with a friend over another renowned restaurant in the area. Everything started fine until the appetizer came (the steamed mussels). The mussels were quite underdone, some even still dripping raw, so we wanted to send them back for more extended cooking but it took some time to gain the server's attention. The mussels were recooked and returned to us and were fine, but not outstanding. I ordered the tenderloin au poivre, but I would be hard pressed to find any peppercorns by sight or flavor. Otherwise, it was cooked to order (medium) though it had a strange "tangy" flavor making me question whether that was the sauce or (hopefully not) the meat. My friend ordered the chicken and had no complaints. I had the chocolate brownie and my friend had the crème brulee sampler and both were fine...again, nothing remarkable. Upon finishing our meals, the entire floor was absent servers or bussers for a full 20 minutes. I nearly approached the bartender (the only restaurant employee on the floor for that time) for our check but finally the server appeared with it. For the price, the inattention to details with both the food and the service seem inexcusable to me. Was it just an off night? I don't know, but I am disinclined to go back to find out.

This was my first visit but most certainly not my last! The ambiance was warm, cozy, and welcoming. Everything from the cheese and crackers, to the mussels, to our main dishes and dessert were delicious. Can’t wait to go back to try something different!!

Love the coziness and location of 75. It was our first Brunch at this location and went in with a group of 6. Waiter was very attentive and responsive. We started with the waffle as a group appetizer, delicious. We were disappointed with the breakfast potatoes, over seasoned - something I think should be pretty easy to discuss and fix. Portion size for all meals was big, yet we felt 75 came up short in the food quality - the options were excellent.

Was surprised by the lackluster service and the quality of the entree. Have been big fans of restaurant for years and this was the first time we were disappointed.

Hope it is not a reflection of a deterioration of management or process.

Would have give Food 5 stars except for dessert which as apple strudel that wasn’t edible. Accompanying cinnamon ice cream was delicious though and restaurant was very gracious about feedback on strudel. I will definitely be back again and again! Staff was lovely and very nice ambience and reasonable prices.

A bit outdated but a charming old fashioned neighborhood pub/restaurant. The best part is the location in the lovely Beacon Hill area surrounded by stately homes and the free cheese and crackers. Food uninspiring overall. Bartenders experienced and friendly.
