We were in town for the night of our vacation and chose the restaurant based on the fact it was in a neighborhood and not on the main drag. Also, the food sound appealing from viewing the menu
We were greeted upon arrival and wished a happy anniversary. Which was thoughtful
Service was overall good aside from the server’s seemingly slower pace as compared to attention received by the table beside us. The team of servers assisted him in clearing and delivering, but only after we sat with clear finished dishes for several minutes before placing them on the table next to us just to have more space
Overall, the food was good. My wedge was as expected with chunks of blue cheese and crispy bacon. The bread was delicious. The main course was good, the salmon was well prepared but the rice was a but under seasoned. Also, the calamari appetizer tasted fine but the light breading was soggy

This is a must for brunch in Boston! Not only is the food and drink delicious (especially the bloody marys) but it is located on the cutest street. Definitely make a reservation!

I had high hopes for this spot. Went on our anniversary. Couldn’t find anything on menu that grabbed me. I ordered chicken sausage pasta which feels like a Tuesday night homemade meal. Not something you pay 25$ for. It was mediocre. Loud pop music playing like a pub. I was expecting and hoping for something a bit more special

Extremely pleasant environment, service was outstanding and food was amazing! It is a must go restaurant and I’ll definitely come back soon. Also, the staff was attentive to the reservation details (I put in the comments that I was celebrating my husband’s birthday) and they brought an amazing desert that made us enjoy even more the decision of having dinner there.
Excellent experience!! Highly recommend.

Fish and chips lacked flavor. However my father sausage fish was one of the best he has ever had. Didn’t know how to make a Spanish coffee but charged exorbitant $14 for it.

Good food / terrible rude service. Part of the dinner party was late getting there, but we ordered ahead. We were all but ignored by the staff - no checking on us / we had to ask for bread and water refills, etc. We wanted another 15 min past their 1.5 hour allocation. We weren’t squatting - just wanted a last glass of wine. They basically kicked us out with 3 or 4 open tables and no one waiting. Obviously, we’ll never go back.

The food was excellent. We had beef tenderloin and the filet. Both were very tender and perfectly prepared. Service was attentive yet not obtrusive.
Will definitely return.

My entire entree was cold to the touch. The Grilled Au Poive Tenderloin had no taste, and (it was like I was eating steak tartare)the gravy on the potatoes was very sugary.

Chicken sausage and eggs with hollandaise was average. Poached eggs undercooked. Mexican omelette also only average and uninspired. The setting and pace were the best part. We have been here several times and find it inconsistent.

If you want the most casual, relaxed but still upscale restaurant come to 75 Chestnut. There is nothing pretentious about it at all however that does not take away from the quality and ambiance. We were celebrating our very recent engagement (just 5 mins prior to arriving at the restaurant) and the whole restaurant was celebrating with us, customers and all. We sat outside and the area of Chestnut on a warm, nearly fall night was just perfect. Little noise at all, didn't have to raise your voice. The food, wow some of the best seafood I have had, love to know what batter they had mixed up for the calamari!

The food was outstanding. The lobster toast and chicken sausage hash were of note.
Kevin our server was attentive and friendly. Even put up with the weak flirting of one of my table mates.
The only questionable thing was we had a table in the back. The two people with their backs to the wall both knocked their heads against the most ill placed shelf Imaginable.
