The dining room overlooking the Boston Public Garden is lovely. It is formal but comfortably so. There were 4 of us and we really did not want to big Entrees they were offering. When we asked if we could see the downstairs menu the waiter could not have been more accommodating and gracious. It's more of an upscale bar menu. 2 of us had the short rib Bistro burgers and 2 had the steak and truffle fries. They also split the 2 arugula and endive salads into individual portions. More

Italian | Cambridge, Boston

This is totally a neighborhood gem. The menu is not huge but that’s why it’s so consistently good. Totally an under the radar kind of place for the quality and creative touches that make the food there so good. They have a roasted chicken dinner that is to die for and that’s no easy feat. For me, that’s the true test of a great chef. Making even roasted chicken taste special. The wood fired oven is my favorite thing but that’s because I’m not a pasta eater. Others at my table had pasta and said it was fantastic. I’m a big fan of Viale! Oh- and to top it all off, they offer $1 oysters every day from 5-7 pm!! Menu prices are very reasonable for Boston/Cambridge. Was crazy busy last time I ate there so servers were a little under the weeds but still super pleasant and we probably waited 5 extra minutes compared to a normal night so all good. Try this place if you haven’t and if you live in the neighborhood then make sure to eat there often because it really has become a wonderful part of this neighborhood. More

This was a pre-theater dinner and the three of us loved it! First, location can’t be beat. Right in the middle of the South End’s entertainment center. Then the decor: whimsical and uplifting. One can’t help but smile at the flamingos, crockery, lighting. I got there early and enjoyed a very fine cocktail at the bar while waiting for the others. Staff is friendly and enthusiastic along with being competent, attentive and helpful. We were in time for delicious $1 dumplings (yum), and my mates enjoyed their drinks, too. We shared plates for appetizers, mains and dessert. No complaints at all. We ate every morsel with relish. Finally, the bill. Absolutely reasonable! Thanks, Banyan, for a terrific experience. Can’t wait to come back. More

Only gave food 4 stars because I don't have adventurous enough of a palate for this kind of dining experience and not all of the dishes were to my liking. But I suppose the point was to experiment and stretch the boundaries of anything I'd tried before. Regardless, though I didn't like all of the tastes and sensations the quality was top notch and beautifully crafted, the service was great and the atmosphere was very warm and inviting. Would recommend to any "foodie" out there looking to explore (and not afraid of hurting their wallet) More

Discover Boston

Beantown, dubbed for the baked beans that put the city on the map, is about far more than beans these days. Local restaurants channel the region’s farm-to-table traditions and celebrate the iconic seafood of New England’s coast—no trip to the region is complete without a proper lobster (pronounced “lob-stah,” steamed and served with butter and corn on-the-cob), freshly shucked oysters, fried clams—you name it. Hometown to a handful of internationally influential female restaurateurs and the inimitable legacy of Julia Child, who called Cambridge home, Boston will always be a city where liberal sensibilities meet a global approach, in politics and on the plate.
