The food was just ok this time. The food was ok and the steak poor. Unfortunately this was for a special occasion.

We had the best experience having a lovely late lunch. The food was delicious and the service excelled. We had Chris as our server. He exceeded our expectations and was very attentive. It was very busy but we were very please with the COVID safety. The staff is working so hard and it was 100%.

Amazing dinner. We ordered the shrimp and scallops risotto, and the chicken with the pan jus and it all came out perfect. They also gave us free chocolate cake and ice cream for our anniversary. We will definitely come again when we are back in Boston

どのお料理も美味しかったですが、Waguのたたきが特に気に入りました。
