We had a great experience. The food was amazing and the atmosphere is something I always enjoy there. Everyone on staff was friendly, including our server Matt who was wonderful. I would highly recommend it. Oh, and there's parking!

I️ had a Friend visiting from out of town. We ordered and waited for an extremely long time. When the food arrived his steak and sauce had solidified And my omelette was cool. They had obviously been under a heating lamp for a long time. We left.

The ambiance is so great, but the service was terrible. We had two young children with us and it was almost an hour wait between app and entree service. Plus, the food wasn't as good as I remember. It was almost as if they were too busy to do quality control on the food. For instance the French onion soup was Luke warm and the cheese barely melted (which is the best part) and the chocolate molten cake was cold in the middle.

Fantastic food and next level service. My friend has a digestive disease, so she asked for accommodations and they took it very seriously. She was able to eat a delicious meal that falls within her diet requirements, thanks to our server double checking everything with the kitchen. Everyone in our party was very happy. I highly recommend Gaslight for anyone who loves good food and good service.

We were looking for a fun place to take my 91-year-old mother out for a Saturday brunch on her birthday. In the past we took her out to "old people" dining spots, but decided that she needed a change of scenery. The Gaslight turned out to be an excellent choice. The food was excellent. The waiters were amiable and very accommodating. The ambiance was just like a real neighborhood bistro in Paris - charming! And, perhaps most importantly, the free parking in the next door lot was highly convenient for getting Mom in and out of the restaurant. The only downside for someone of Mom's age was the noise level, which was quite high and made it more challenging for her to hear. Still, it was a very successful outing and I highly recommend the experience.

The service itself based solely on the timing of the food was great. However, if you base service on the waiter/waitress & their friendliness, then I'd give this place a 1 star. Our server was rude, cold and rushed us. We're not the kind of patrons who hang out at a table when not eating or drag out the meal. We were rushed from the very beginning and couldn't believe how rushed we were. Even the woman who wasn't serving us and was removing the paper placemat before dessert was rude. She practically yanked the stuff off the table. Every time the server brought a beer, a little spilled on our stuff in the chair.

The food was good but not great. The chicken was dry and very small portion but the other items we had were good. The squash soup was very good as was the sweet potato ravioli.

Overall, we will not return to Gaslight when there are so many other worthy restaurants in Boston.

We went for my husband birthday and it was a good choice. Food was really good with reasonable prices, we took the prix fixe menu and we love it! it was actually a lot of food. It has parking that is a plus for Boston. The only downside is very small tables and very close to each other, it is also a little noisy, but I will definitely come back.

I have been to the restaurant for multiple times, but the experience has been declining every time. Today, it was worst out of all.

1. I was very excited to order Smoked Salmon Tartine as it indicated there were salmon roe in the dish. When the plate arrived, it did not have it and the waiter insist telling me there is and was my my plate which it didn't. He later cleared with his team and said I got the old menu and the menu wasn't updated. The waiter treated like it was my fault that I got the old menu list and I did not like that he insist there were on my plate like I don't know what I am talking about.

2. My friend also ordered the Omelette Lyonnaise which we had previously. The omelette arrived as it was mostly just egg with almost no potatoes and caramelized onions in there this time.

3. At last, the check came and it was incorrect.

Not very happy with the experience overall.

Good food, lively dining scene, good service. Not very apt guest service. I called few hours before our reserved dinner time and asked if a third guest can be accommodated. They told me its impossible, but when we came to restaurant, we were seated at a corner table for two that could have accommodate a third person easily. No big deal, but it makes difference between 5 and 4 star service

My absolute favorite brunch spot! Every time I go to Boston I make it a point to get brunch here. Food is great and reasonably priced. Their seafood tower is among the best I’ve had! I recently went on a trip to Europe and this restaurant reminds me so much of the brasseries I ate at there! I’ve had good service all but one time, and management was very apologetic when that happened. However, the last few times I’ve been there, it’s been SOOO loud, so I felt compelled to write this review. And it’s not the guests; it’s the music they play throughout the restaurant, which in turn makes guests speak louder. It’s loud enough that when I was there this past Sunday, I heard two separate tables of young people (not old, hard of hearing people) asking the servers to turn it down, and I almost asked them myself, too. They did turn it down a bit but it was honestly barely noticeable that they changed the volume. I will still go back time and time again but please! Turn the music down a bit!

brunch there yesterday; thankfully with reservations; very busy, very lively.... service by our waiter, paul - was outstanding... food was very good...not great..omelets..with frites (French fries) smallish and you needed a bit more food to actually feel full...portions somewhat small... but price was small too.. $9.25 for omelet with fries... could have ordered pastry but did not.
Great brunch menu and lunch menu so you can choose. I'd return to try dinner...great vibe..very busy at 10:30 on a sunday and by the time we left ...2 hrs later... lines were almost out the door..go early to avoid.

The food and drinks were great! We all shared escargot and oysters, which were phenomenal! We were accidentally given 5 instead of six snails, so our waiter very kindly comped that for us on our bill. I had the Steak Frites, and others had mostly seafood dishes. Not one person was dissatisfied! I also can’t say enough great things about my Manhattan! The ambiance was beautiful and wait staff was great. I’d love to go back!

The ambience on a Sunday afternoon was great as was the service and the food. My only complaint was the noise level which was a combination of a very loud large group next to us and the “music” coming through the speakers. Our request to have the music turned down fell on deaf ears!

Best French toast I’ve had but the service was terrible.

Too bad the service is so bad because the food is delish!
