It was generally an excellent dining experience but it was almost not... I made a RESERVATION on OpenTable to be certain I could catch up with an old friend who I had not seen in too long over a meal. When we I arrived, on time to an almost empty restaurant, our hostess tried to “wedge us in” at the bar. Upon glaring at her (are you serious?) she then asked if we’d prefer a table. Of course! That’s why I made a RESERVATION. More

A complete surprise! They don’t have their liquor license yet but their beers and wines more than offset. Every other category places them in the top ranks of elegant Boston restaurants. The location is magical, the food was highly creative and perfectly prepared, our wine would rate a 98-99 and the staff is bright, knowledgeable, fun and committed. Be forewarned - their menu is largely fish - served imaginatively. It’s too bad one can’t check all the occasion boxes because Mooncussers is perfect for each. More

One of the best service experiences I’ve had in Boston. Look forward to returning. More
