Another stellar meal w friends. Scallop Crudo, pear/pumpkin sour, chicken liver mousse and Pappardelle w lamb and olives, rare bavette steak and the swordfish was thoroughly enjoyed by all. We shared a cheese plate for dessert. Vincent chose a nice bottle of red wine. We will miss his attention to our tastes and wonderful laugh. Best wishes going forward.

Mid- week birthday celebration. Quiet table with great server Elaine. She was attentive without being intrusive. Salad fresh but not inventive. My entree was A delicious pan seared halibut with potato au gratin which was a bit under cooked. My husband had the steak medium well which was partially undercooked. He said the accompanying squash dish in a skillet was amazing! Overall it was a pleasant night with tasty but not unbelievable food and great service.

I love 80 Thoreau, it never disappoints! Had a wonderful meal on a random Tuesday night. The chicken liver mousse was amazing and thoroughly enjoyed the steak Bavette. Just an excellent ambiance and warm, welcoming service that makes this restaurant the perfect gem to make a random winter weeknight fun and relaxing.

The Food quality and taste is Outstanding. Love the place chic and cozy. The only thing I didn't like, its that I added to my reservation a birthday favor, and they did ignore or forgot about my request.

I know I will have a delicious meal but every time it exceeds my expectations. Pumpkin pear soup w confit goose and swordfish w apple fritters, celeriac and cabbage. Amazing combinations and flavors beautifully presented. A great bottle of wine suggested by Vincent. Looking forward to dining there again. 😋

Started with the chicken liver pate which was outstanding. Main course was lamb with noodles - excellent. Skipped the dessert as I am not a dessert eater. My wife had the fish, again excellent. My daughter had the steak bavette which was excellent. We have been to 80 Thoreau many times and have never been disappointed. I am a firm believer of a limited menu.

After nine years, 80:Thoreau has remarkably maintained the same high quality it has had. Everything was superb. Halibut cooked perfectly, tasty pasta, a lovely dessert and Great service. It’s just always a pleasure to eat there. Ate at a high end Cambridge restaurant the next night which just fell short by comparison in so many ways. Highly recommend 80 Thoreau as ell as their Boston restaurant Mooncusser!

A remarkably and consistently great restaurant off the beaten path. Food is an "8-9" - not quite a 10. But everything else about the experience is perfect. For a great dining experience outside of Boston, you can't do better.

Boston-quality food in the burbs with excellent service. The sauce reduction on the steak with mushrooms made me enjoy the mushrooms more than I ever had. The halibut was probably the best preparation of that fish I'd ever had. Even the very small menu of wines by the glass (about ten) had very good choices. Very nice dessert and cofee to top it off. I really liked this place (in case you couldn't tell) and will return soon.

Excellent service, excellent food, fun evening! The soup was delicious. They have the best soups there. The bread was fresh and yummy. They have the most amazing cabernet sauvignon - it is so smooth! I think it is Rabble 2017 Mossfire Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon (Paso Robles) and 80 Thoreau is the only place that I know of that carries it. It was the best wine I have ever had! Their wine selection is well done. Everyone is very friendly and polite and helpful. The food is consistently tasty and great!

Its been a few years since first entering the door to 80T. It has become my favorite place to have dinner on this entire planet. Special occasions, birthdays, anniversaries are all shared with this wonderful establishement.

Whatever the occasion, I am certain of two things: 1) I will leave with a round belly.
2) I will have had phenomenal meal.

Waiters, ambience, quality are all excellent. 80T is synonomous with excellence and I will continue coming here for a very long time.

We have been to 80 Thoreau many times.
We wish they would change up the menu.
It is very concise as it is, so if there are no changes
we always order the same thing.
