Food and drinks were great as well as the ambience. The only minor gripe we had was that we felt really rushed. It might be because it was a pre-fixe menu but we the first 3 courses brought out within a half hour and barely had half of our cocktails. They then asked if we wanted our dessert course and we had to tell them to wait. Ironically the one time they didn’t rush us is when we had our card out ready to pay. All in all it was still a great experience and a nice cozy spot which is exactly why you want to enjoy your time there.

Very comfortable and relaxing place to eat. Dim lighting which is not bad but sets the mood for an intimate dining experience. Will come back again

Absolutely delicious! The restaurant is a on a cute small street. The service was excellent. We had the fig flatbread and the Carbonara as well as a bowl of clam chowder. It was all perfect. It was hard to pick what to eat. Everything sounded amazing. 10/10 would come back again.

75 Chestnut is a pleasant surprise - it was our first time at this lovely neighborhood restaurant located just of Charles Street in Beacon Hill. The service is warm and friendly and the food is very good. The atmosphere is outstanding. We'll be back.

Here at venue and service was fiine. Drinks were fun but he food was average to poor. The halibut special was ok but the side was a tastless black mystery mush with mini veggies stuck randomly into it and the winter spaghetti carbonera was ober cooked, tastless and the so called applewood bacon was large chunks of chopped up ham. The highlight was the freshbaked cookie with ice cream. Go for drinks . . . eat somewhete else

Amazing place with great food. The service is delightful, making the whole evening a blissful experience. Ordered the seafood stew which they themselves split into two for me and my date, saving us the trouble. The fried calamari came in cold and non-crispy, which they took away as soon as we raised the issue. The fresh calamari came in about 5 min later, hot and crispy. Ended the night with creme brulee on the house which was a very sweet gesture. 10/10, loved the place!

75 Chestnut is a true gem in Boston. They have made safety and capacity adjustments during Covid and it is still my favorite restaurant. The warm friendly atmosphere and excellent food made our dining experience wonderful. Felt blessed to have my family dinner there.

The food prices seem a little high, but the portions are massive. I got the crab cake benedict and it came with two sausages and home fries. The food was delicious and came out quickly.

The restaurant has done a good job of sectioning off different seating places with plastic partitions to limit cross-contact between patrons.

Really enjoyed our meal there. Unfortunately, Covid puts a damper on any dining experience, but 75 Chestnut does a great job of providing a safe experience and keeping you well within the 90 minute meal time limit.

At the end of the meal, we were surprised with a molten chocolate cake dessert in the house (we were celebrating our anniversary)! Fantastic!

Ordinarily this place has a cozy, neighborhood vibe, which I love. But they went above and beyond with the plexiglass, which has destroyed the ambiance, and they are a little too compliant with 90-minute rule. Some people may appreciate this, not me. But service, food, etc., all still great. Hopefully this is all temporary ... for the time being, I'd suggest a place with less plastic or drinking at home.

I remembered this place as being cozy with great food. The food was just okay this time and the service was not great. With that said, I did feel very comfortable in the space with the covid precautions they’ve implemented- solid barriers and plenty of distance.

We very much enjoyed the Thanksgiving special dinner event. The staff were great, efficient not intrusive. The food was excellent high quality thanksgiving turkey with all the fixings. Other options were available as well. The pumpkin bisque was well flavored and served hot.
Dessert was an arrangement of portions of 4 different items served to each diner. The drinks were made well and served cold. The wine list had many good wines that did not break the bank. Loved this place and will return.

We discovered this restaurant recently and it’s a favorite. We had their French onion soup which was flavorful and not overwhelmed with bread and cheese. We also shared a flat bread. The nouveau barreled wine was appealing and we will be back, no question.

The food was not good at all. I ordered the Veggie Omelette and the mushrooms did not look fresh, they were gummy, tomatoes were not at all cooked a little prior to being put in the omelette. The potatoes did not impress either. My daughter ordered the chicken panini and the bottom bread was wet and soggy, fries were not fully cooked. We both left more than half of the food!

Polite friendly waiter, food came quickly.
I had French Toast with banana, Nutella and pecans. A tiny bit of Nutella and the bread with thick and tough and I could barely cut it!
I'll never order that again.
I told the host and she simply said 'sorrt'.
Usually the food is very good but I lef thungry. I foolishly didn't tell the waiter, a mistake.
