We booked 75 Chestnut at the last minute for my boyfriends birthday and we were so pleasantly surprised! They have done a great job with precautions for COVID-19, while still maintaining a cozy and inviting atmosphere. The restaurant is tucked away in Back Bay, and has the most quaint ambiance. It was busy but not too loud - perfect for an intimate occasion with loved ones. The food and drinks were amazing, and they even brought out a small birthday cake on the house for us to celebrate! The steaks, clam chowder, mojitos, and lava cake were all absolutely fantastic! Our waiter, Derek, was so kind and attentive. Nothing but great things to say about 75 Chestnut - highly recommend!

Delightful weekend afternoon brunch at 75 Chestnut. Appreciate the steps taken to ensure physical distance between tables. My cousin and I enjoyed highly attentive service, delicious food and relaxed ambience in one of the loveliest parts of Beacon Hill. 75 Chestnut is a special place in the neighborhood. Well worth the trip.

We picked the restaurant off of the OpenTable app with no recommendations. We were celebrating my 50th birthday and are from out of state. Everything was wonderful. Our waitress was great, food, drinks, atmosphere, just everything. We loved our experience.

Anniversary dinner .. and it was fine. Rack of lamb appetizer and lobster bisque were absolutely delicious as starters. My steak tip entree wasnt great, tough meat, not juicy at all. My wife's cod filet entree was average, not delicious, she ate 1/2 of it. Ambience was OK, but it looks much nicer from outside. With all the choices around id probably go elsewhere next time.

Always a nice night. Outdoor setting makes you believe you’re in Europe. Best hostess in Boston - food and specials always make me happy - wait staff so very accommodating- and now with added perks - we had the 1/2 price desserts. My favorite place to kick back in Boston. .

Really great job with the social distancing and protection between tables! Food was good, great bloody mary! The chicken and waffles was very good, but it seemed like the chicken was like popcorn chicken from the freezer rather than home battered chicken tenders. Otherwise brought me back to my Beacon Hill Days!

The food was subpar. The steak was underseasoned and chewy and tough. The fries and coconut shrimp were terrible! They were deep fried in oil that obviously needed to be changed. It tasted like bad fair food. How this place has so many good ratings is beyond me. Don't believe the other reviews, cheap food with a nice store front.

Its adorable inside & the way they've set up with COVID is perfect. I feel safe & protected but the ambiance is still nice. The food was good, but I wouldn't say fantastic? I ordered the filet & it was a little over done. My dining companions also enjoyed their food, but felt the same. For the price point, I would have expected a little better.

The welcome into the restaurant & the service from our waitress was phenomenal. I can imagine this was a pretty happening spot pre-COVID. Even so there were several tables there. I would go again to try something different on the menu & see if I was more impressed. I would definitely recommend checking it out & seeing what you think.

Such an amazing experience, as is usual in chestnut 75. But this time service went even the extra mile with all of the outdoor accommodations due to covid and being speedy and just all around amazing. Thanks to Genesis, our waitress, for making it one of the best brunch experiences I’ve ever had even compared to hyped up restaurants in New York, the food is just as good and her service made a first brunch during covid just amazing.

We had a great brunch experience at 75 Chestnut. Most importantly, the inside plastic walls made us feel very safe. The drinks were fantastic - highly recommend the special cocktails! My friend got the friend chicken waffle and it was amazing. I had the eggs Benedict and they were fine - nothing to write home about. I wish I had gone with a sweet brunch item since everyone was raving about the French toast. They didn’t rush us at all and made us feel very safe and well-taken care of.

My party of four had an excellent meal and experience at 75 Chestnut. We sat inside. They have separated the tables, installed clear partitions between tables, and reduced capacity. All servers wore masks. We arrived at a busy time, but were seated immediately and service was prompt and excellent. Our food came out quickly. Among our mains were the pork chop, the sliced beef salad, the swordfish special and the chicken with quinoa. All excellent and nicely presented. We haven’t been out to dine very often recently, but this meal reminded me how pleasant that experience can be.
