    Really was a great evening. Our food selection was outstanding and the service impeccable. Our reservation was originally for a high top table which at the time was the only tables available. A call to the restaurant a few hours before we were to leave for the restaurant we were able to change to a standard table which was great. A cappuccino ended the evening and the maitre d' call us a cab.

    Always love 75 Chestnut. Although it's on the small side, that adds to it's charm. I like the fact that it's off the beaten track and a bit quieter. The food is always reliably great and tasty, and the waitstaff is terrific--very attentive and friendly without being overbearing. I had the blue crab ravioli special--excellent! One of my go-to places in Boston.

    Place is wonderful and servers are busy to be sure. I eat alone and listen to audio books. Server’s dash by and although each checks on food immediately after it arrives, no one comes back after first check and it’s hard to get the check and to convey that I joined the 75 club.

    We went to 75 Chestnuts since they took an open table reservation for Sunday brunch. My daughters had omelets which were good, however, for $20 it could have included a piece of toast. I got the French Toast with raspberry preserve and mascarpone cheese. They were disappointing. If I hadn't been with my daughters I would have sent them back. The bread itself was nicely sized and of good quality, however, they were somewhat dry... definitely not a good soaking in an egg batter . The raspberry reserve was just that a very light smearing of raspberry jam. The same was true for the mascarpone cheese. $20 for this was not worth the price and in fact I would have been still disappointed had they been only $10. Perhaps other diners enjoy this French toast offering but not me, I would recommend 75 Chestnut based on being able to make reservations to eat prior to going to a show.

    We arrived early for our res and we’re seated promptly but in what I would call an “afterthought” table right in the middle of the floor. All night people were going around us - it was an unpleasant place to be. The restaurant is small and I understand the need to ma imipramine space but it felt like we were driving in a high school cafeteria. Our server was nice, attentive and took good care of us. We ordered the lobster gnocchi and it was good - very different. My wife and I both ordered the Nantucket Seafood Stew for dinner and it was a major disappointment. It was basically a bowl of massive chunks of carrots and potatoes, with some salmon and 4 of the smallest mussels I have ever seen. You cannot serve a. Seafood dish like this in New England.

    Five of us went to Sunday brunch after church. Everything was outstanding. Our server was attentive and prompt. The cocktails were delicious (apricot French martini, Bloody Mary, old fashioned). The menu was extensive for brunch, ranging from egg dishes to salads to entrees. The lobster toast was terrific as were the bowls and salads. Vegetarian fare was on offer as well. Portions were generous and beautifully presented. Dessert for the table was raspberry stuffed French toast...a wonderful ending. We'll be back!

    Seated quickly and had an attentive waitress even though it was a Friday evening. Wine pairing was recommended for the delicious rack of lamb. Boston Bibb salad was a rich combination of lettuce, strawberries, apricots, and goat cheese for starters. Decadent desserts of creme brulee and molten chocolate cake completed a delightful dinner.

    Charming, classy and casual atmosphere. We sat outside and was a perfect setting on a pleasant summer evening. Food was incredibly yummy...thoughtfully prepared with fresh ingredients and with an artful spin, but still comfortable/accessible. Drinks were delicious. Service was friendly and professional. A nice walk across the garden from the Four Seasons.

    75 Chestnut has always been a favorite of mine. Nice neighborhood place great for socializing - prices , however, have gone through the roof - particularly the alcohol- not a glass under $15-16. With most entrees in the $30 range - it becomes an expensive night. Will definitely be decreasing my number of visits

    This restaurant was the perfect way to begin our 4th of July get away. The location is quaint, quiet, and everything you'd expect from a Beacon Hill restaurant. We chose to sit outside, but the inside was cozy and romantic. Service was fabulous. The food was upscale and tasty, but the hash and homefries were a little bit greasy - not enough to ruin it, but more than I prefer.
