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.

75 Chestnut is doing a wonderful job ! They have outside seating as well as tables inside. We shared the salmon and a salad and it was perfectly prepared. 75 Chestnut has become one of our favorite restaurants in Boston.

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.

The whole dinner was rushed and the waiter was hovering to keep it moving. We were in and out under an hour. If you like places that have good food, but hustling to turn tables this is for you. It’s not for us.

75 Chestnut is a quaint restaurant on a quiet street, just off of Charles Street on beacon Hill. Had requested an outdoor table, but it was first come first served. They did their best to accommodate us. The hostess and our waiter Eddie were both very friendly and helpful. One person in our party has a lot of food sensitivities, and they worked hard to find something that met her needs. Our group had PEI mussels, cod, and salmon. All were very tasty. Had the avocado salad from their specials menu, which was also very good. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

I ordered cod which was somewhat bland. The lobster gnocchi was good as well as the tenderloin tips. The service was average; the waitress was nice but not a great waitress.

Overall the food was good and moderately priced. We ended up at a bar table, since the first table had a poor location along a curved bench seat. The bartender was able to take drink and food orders right away, but once the food was served she got to busy to check on us and clear any plates or provide beverage refills. The hostess/manager walked by multiple times as did another waitress unwilling to provide any assistance. We had planned on ordering dessert but after waiting 15 minutes to get anyone’s attention we just went to the bartender ask for our tab and left. The hostess/manager that it was more important to take down umbrellas and clean adjacent tables rather than pay any attention to us. And we went to a neighboring restaurant and got our dessert there.

Wonderful! The space is a bit tight for COVID times. Some tables are way too close, one chair literally next to the other customers. But the food, music and environment are great.

It is rare for a vegetarian to find much worth eating on a Boston menu. 75 Chestnut stands out with its still modest but excellent veg options. Very flavorful and nicely presented.

a pleasure to eat at our neighborhood restaurant. I very polite waiter, I ordered coffee, it was too strong for me and asked to have ice tea, he was very obliging and said he would not charge for the coffee, in this day and age when restaurants are hurting I thought that was very kind, I hope I made up for not paying for the coffe in our tip. I had an omlete with spinich, mushrooms, home fries and two sausage links, a big meal, which could not finish, lovely, definitely have that again
