Just what you want on a cold fall evening--a warm, charming, welcoming neighborhood restaurant on Beacon Hill. Good, comforting food that's reasonably priced.

Our family of four enjoyed a relaxing brunch at 75 Chestnut on a Saturday morning. This beautiful restaurant is tucked into Beacon Hill on a quiet street that oozes with history. The breakfast dishes were bountiful and tasty. The Bloody Mary drinks were HUGE and topped with a pickle, olives, and pepper. Just the presentation in the big glass was exceptional! The wait staff was friendly and attentive. We were celebrating our son’s 25th birthday. He was treated with a scrumptious molten cake topped with ice cream and whip cream. Thank you 75 Chestnut for providing a wonderful experience! We will be back soon!

brought my mom in who was visiting for the night. Great atmosphere in the restaurant.. waiters/waitresses/host all very friendly, however our waiter had 0 idea about the menu. So that was a bit unhelpful. Food was very good... i got the salmon (although need more of the apricot dijon glaze) and my mother ordered the swordfish, which she enjoyed.

Booked a table for two on the day, there were no tables till 9pm. we arrived early intending to have a drink at the bar but were immediately seated at high table by the window. husband had surf and turf and i had the tenderloin au poivre - both were absolutely amazing and we felt they were good value. also had a bottle of super tuscan - also excellent value (for Boston!). Good, lively ambience but not mad busy. to finish, the bar tender was able to make us a proper dark Expresso Martini, which we had not managed to get so far since arriving in Boston a few months ago - all in all delightful.

My wife and I have visited 75 Chestnut several times. Most often we sit at the bar for a cocktail and app. This visit we were treating out of town friends to a dinner out and the specials (both wine and entrees) were perfect. The food showcased New England too with a stew served in a hollowed out pumpkin, a lobster pasta with beet fettuccine and corn, and a surf and turf with a filet and lobster tail. We love the variation in the menu across seasons, the signature cocktails, and the staff. The service was very good with the training on wine service showcased by the way our waiter decanted and served our wine. Always a fun and satisfying trip!

Food & service was good and it was great they were able to accommodate our party of 11 people. However, it’s not a large place so the seating was tight.

This was our first time to 75 Chestnut and I can unequivocally say it was one of our most delightful experiences in Boston (and we go out to eat a lot). The food was fantastic and the service was even better (S/O to Jeff). I would highly recommend!

A friend from Cincinnati recommended this restaurant. She visits every year and has eaten here every time she visits. We loved everything about 75 Chestnut. We ate early and when we left the restaurant was full.
A wonderful location. The food was great and staff so friendly.

We had a wonderful dinner at 75 Chestnut. The space is beautiful, and fits in perfectly in a very nice neighborhood just a few minutes from the city. Each of our party of seven tried a different entree and we were all pleased with our dinner. From seafood to steak to fish and chips, it was all outstanding. We’ll definitely be back here on our next trip to Boston.

As a frequent tourist/visitor to Boston, my family seeks out dining experiences. Since finding 75 Chestnut some 3 years ago we have been back a number of times, and we have found it to be welcoming, cozy, with excellent service, and very good an consistent menu choices. The clientele are interpreted to be Beacon Hill locals, that have made this their go to establishment. My advice is to seek out 75 Chestnut in the Beacon Hill neighborhood, rather than a tourist location on a busy street. The quite location is a gem, with welcoming staff, and great food.

While we are "regulars", but not regular enough for the manager for the front-of-the-house to recognize us by name, he still managed to seat us an hour earlier than our res., at a makeshift table at the bar.
While service was somewhat awkward (begging the bartender??), they were able to accomodate us and meal was better than ok.
Will return. (Maybe enough so that they will learn our names!!)

We had a lovely meal.at.75 Chestnut in Beacon Hill on Sunday. I had requested thru Open Table a birthday dessert or cake, but they must not have seen the request since there was no offering or mention of it. I did not bring it up because my kids had already brought up gelato (across the street) for dessert. There were plenty of gluten free choices and modestly priced entrees for the less hungry. I had the pork osso bucco special, and it was very good. My red wine was also excellent. I would return to 75 Chestnut!!

A brilliant little last-minute find. We'd been at other "fancier" restaurants in the city during our stay, but this one was by far the best evening we had. It's a warm, comfortable, friendly neighborhood restaurant - lively with delicious food and a wide range of options that ensure there's something for everybody. Cheese and crackers for all on arrival was a lovely way to start. followed by WARM freshly baked bread- when that happens - you know things are going to be good. It was divine.

Food was great as well.... and to top it all off, some of the best service we've encountered. Warm and hospitable, nothing was too much trouble.

A nice walk around the area too afterwards with the lovely streets was perfect. Definitely recommended.
