I originally had set a reservation for 7 PM on a Monday to celebrate my fiancées birthday, but I had to attend a wake unexpectedly and coupled with the rain and rush hour, wasn't able to make it until 8:30. B&G was extremely helpful the whole time and was ultimately willing to allow us to arrive when we could make it. I'm not sure if this is the case always, but it was a very kind gesture, and it's much appreciated. More

Excellent value for money. This restaurant has a high end fit out. The staff provide an impeccable service and were helpful and professional at all times. The food is not that special but when you combine it with their low prices it is exceptional value. People need to realize this when booking. It is not a 5star French restaurant. More

Contemporary French | South End, Boston

This neighborhood bistro has changed ownership many times, but I like the way things are working out now. the food is very well-prepared and delicious, judging by my meal of cold cucumber, avocado and crab soup, and a delicious duck with grapes. My only complaint was the noise level -- we sat out back in the glassed-in "conservatory," a space I love -- but it was impossible to have a quiet conversation there, and the din in the main room (we had a table around 6 PM on a tuesday night) seemed just as great. We will be back for the food, but this is a happening place, too noisy for relaxed conversation. More

This is a go-to restaurant for us after theater. We always enjoy the food, the service is awesome, and the value is the best in the South End. I'd suggest the full meals for two, with choice of entrees with appetizers and dessert. They offer both a vegetarian and non-vegetarian option. More

American | South End, Boston

Located in the heart of South Boston on East Broadway, we offer unique cafeteria style breakfast and lunch everyday. At night we transform our restaurant into candle lit table service offering casual American food with craft beer & wine. We are just under a mile from the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in the bustling Seaport district and just 2 miles from Logan Airport.
You might find yourself starting your busy day off here with the banana & caramel french toast, just to wind up back here for lunch or later that night enjoying the Teriyaki Salmon or BBQ Tenderloin Steak Tips . The atmosphere might shift during the course of us serving three meals a day, but what remains is the same comfortable environment and exceptional food that made our sister restuarant in Beacon Hill famous.
