                                75 was perfect! The restaurant is beautiful and ambiance was perfect for a relaxing dinner after a long day of being a “tourist.” Our waiter was an angel and the service was best we had in Boston (we ate out ALOT) and the food was great. Would recommend to anyone visiting or living in Boston!!!

                                This was our first time here and we loved it! Bloody Mary was INCREDIBLE and everyone REALLY enjoyed their food. I ordered the quinoa bowl and my two friends ordered the wedge and the Caesar salads! We will definitely be back!

                                Great menu! I didn’t know what to pick. I had the seafood pasta, my partner had the steak & avocado bowl, & we shared the crème brûlée for dessert. Service was great, food was incredible. All reasonably priced.

                                we had not been since before COVID. Back then, the host as well as the wait staff were very unfriendly. Fortunately, this visit, they have new employees who are quite welcoming and the food and atmosphere were both great! Will definitely be going back soon!

                                The restaurant itself is adorable. Situated in a quiet and charming neighborhood, it’s an unexpected gem. My sister and I split the polenta truffle fries as an appetizer and shared the mussels and the Meyer lemon chicken as entree - all were delicious.

                                Rice didn't go with the salmon. It would have been better with a duck or chicken dish. Everything else was great though. I am a little disappointed that the restaurant took their lamb burger off the menu a while a go. I loved that!

                                Love 75 Chestnut, but wish that the menu had more options for folks with dietary limitation such as no dairy and no pork. The food is really flavorful and the service is always excellent. I miss the bloody mary self-assembly bar from pre-pandemic times!

                                Okay at best. Sat down next to owner at bar who was not very helpful. The hostess was super nice and accommodating but was ruined by the mediocre food. They also have 9PM + reservations yet give the bums rush at 1015… guess due to ordering late the untrained kitchen staff took it out on me and gave me a super rare steak when I ordered medium rare. Very embarrassing as my date pointed out how rare the steak was right away. Veggies tasted like they were pre frozen. Heard good things but was grossly disappointed. I love creme brûlée but theirs was not good. The passion fruit one tasted like straight fake flavoring. The cesar salad was grocery store level at best. Glad I don’t live in area not my cup of tea

                                Everything was great from the moment we arrived. The food was excellent, service was great! The portions were perfect you could order a side or a full meal which made it nice to try a few different items. We can’t wait to go back! The location is right near the common easily accessible to parking with a nice walk through the common.

                                Great neighborhood place, friendly atmosphere, fantastic service (both the guy who seated us after I called to say we couldn't park and were running late and the outstanding waitress), casual, comfortable - perfect!

                                Wish I could be a regular. Has a nice neighborhood feel and you can tell there are a fair amount of repeat customers. Manager fully invested, our waiter has impeccable timing.

                                I order the filet mignon and it was not very tender and was super chewy and not like a typical filet. A little disappointing. Everything else was great though!

                                As always, great menu selection for brunch, perfect weather day so we sat outside, great ambiance and terrific service.
