Fantastic Hidden Place! We drove from around 2 hours away for a party of 6 for a 9 PM reservation and it was well worth it. We got there a little early and had drinks at the bar out front. The food and drinks were amazing! More

Great little place. We wanted a low key Sat evening had found it to be perfect. Got the gnocchi, iceberg salad and a selection of cheeses, paired with really nice wines. Two suggestions: 1) keep the kitchen open till 10p, at least for the simple stuff like the toasts and the cheeses, and 2) add one easy dessert like a chocolate mousse to the menu. Nonetheless, would highly recommend. More

Fantastic meal at the Merchant. I put the level of noise at high because playoff baseball was going on at the bar but it is a great space for a sit down meal or to hang out and watch the game at the bar. More

We had a 6pm reservation, before seeing Hamilton at 7:30. We got stuck in traffic and they were able to change the reservation to 6:30, but we didn't get there until 6:45. We were still able to order chowder, drinks and 3 apps, and got the check by 7:20 without feeling rushed at all. The chowder was as good as ever, the cherrystones on the half shell nice and fresh, and the charred octopus which my companion highly recommended was one of the best things I've ever had there! More

This is my getting together with friends lunch spot. Love their Crispy Shrimp Rice Bowl, it's phenomenal - but wish they had the option without pepper flakes so I don't have to take a Benadryl. Totally worth it! Fish and fries, Beets Salad, Greek Salad is also delicious. Try it! More

French American | Downtown Crossing, Boston

We had a wonderful dinner before attending a show at the Shubert Theatre. We both started our meal with the French Onion soup. It was excellent with the classic melted cheese on top the soup to hold in the heat and concentrate the flavor. Again, we both had the steak frites. This was a fine entree. The restaurant has a high energy but does not interfere with conversation. The service was both prompt and efficient. I definitely plan to return. More

We were about 20 minutes late for our reservation due to traffic but it was no problem at all. They seated us immediately. Service was quick, which was appreciated as we were very hungry! We enjoyed our meal, but the noise level was so high that it was nearly impossible to have a conversation. Great option for pre or post theater eats. More

Great price. Great food. Great drinks. Great service. Perfect for pre-theater dining. Bloody Mary was tasty and spicy. Pastrami hash and eggs was yummy. I do question not giving 2 slices of toast though. 3 halves of bread? Really?? More

The restaurant does not have curb appeal, but is comfortable inside. The manager was very accommodating to our large group of 10, and our server was terrific. She stayed on top her game in taking our orders, serving everyone correctly, and being helpful. She was very personable and willing to separate our bill at the end of our evening. We were never rushed. The food is casual and tasty, a bit too carbohydrate loaded though. I wish there were more salads and lighter fare. We all found something to our liking though. The seasonal deviled eggs (ours were drizzled with balsamic vinegar) and fried pickles were nice to share around the table. The onion soup was excellent and served uniquely in a cast iron pan. Serving as the popular entrees for our group were the Peach Moon sandwich and duck poutine. It's an easy place to drop in after or before a show since it is located within the theatre district. More
