American | South End, Boston

This was a great restaurant. It is definitely a unique taste with the decor but I love that kind of stuff and it feels really authentic and well thought out versus some of the cliché and manufactured layout that you might see elsewhere. It is fun looking around and seeing all the unique touches. I could see more stuffy, uptight people not liking it and going elsewhere but, honestly, would they be missed? 😉 Beyond the decor, the food was excellent (poutine, gnocchi, and the chicken were all excellent), drink prices were reasonable, and service was great. I definitely plan to come back here again. More

We were thrilled to find a fine place for lunch on a Monday. The meal was superb (steak frites and salmon, delicious cheese plate, and divine ile flottante dessert) with friendly waiter who spoke French to us at our request given we’re French speaking novices who wanted tonoractice speaking, very comfortable seating, and overall a perfect atmosphere. We’d definitely go back. More

This is the second of two reviews as I ate there two days in a row. I appreciate a restaurant that seats you on time and can serve as well on a Saturday as they do on a Wednesday. They did not disappoint. Excellent food served well. The staff is terrific. Friendly and concerned. One of my guests ordered steak rare plus. Perfection. The Rigatoni Bolognese was outstanding. They pour a generous martini and have a great wine list. More
