Lovely ambiance, with lively, fun diners. Our hostess and waiter were very attentive, and the waiter recommended a very good wine! We had the seared foie gras and French onion soup followed by my wonderful rack of lamb and my husband's delicious veal dish - he raved about the sauce. We capped it off with chocolate mousse and cappuccino. A truly great night!

Good wine suggestion - service was good, kitchen a little slow but it was Saturday night. Dover sole: worth it.

Birthday. It was good but food was not as good as other French restaurants in the area. My steak was not prepared as requested. Wine was good and reasonably priced.

The setting is typical of Parisienne bistro. Server was knowledgeable and attentive. Food was delicious, beautifully presented and plentiful. The Dover Sole was skillfully deboned table side and it melted in the mouth. This is a perfect place for an evening out with a special someone or a small group.

Had a wonderful experience with 3 colleagues at lunch yesterday. We all selected different entrees and all of us were delighted. Three of us splurged for dessert and were equally happy with our choices. The service was flawless and the ambience was conducive to a business luncheon. We will be back!

We love this restaurant and the food was excellent and service attentive. The prices have increased quite a bit unless you order the set menu. Our guest was surprised by the high prices.

As always, the food and service was exceptional. We no longer live in Boston so now visit the restaurant only once a year when we visit friends. And yet, we still made to feel like very special friends visiting again.

Late lunch is best. Food is always great but noise level at dinner time...IMHO is obscene.

It was New Year's Eve, even the bar was totally reserved. There were a couple of groups that had been celebrating for a while, so it was pretty loud. After they left noise level was more normal & we struck up a conversation with the couple next to us. I expect on a normal night conversation will be possible. The food & service were wonderful, we asked for a wine to go with our meal, and below a specified amount, and were suggested one at 75% of our rate, it worked perfectly.

Holiday Family meal. Always good food here. Not the fanciest French restaurant in town but feels most Parisienne to me. Probably my go to when I need a good bistro meal. Like that you have the fish soup and Ile flotant on the menu. Maybe one day we’ll see some quenelles 😋

One of the best meals in recent past. Pan seared beef tenderloin done to perfection. Foie gras as well. Duck magret was the best of many we have had.

Authentic French ambiance. Our waiter was especially good; helpful with the menu, gave us a complimentary glass of champagne we spilled, no pressure to order quickly or turn the table around. Old fashion European experience.

I had the "Taste of France" menu and it was excellent. My wife had the steak & foie gras which was outstanding. Not cheap, but good value. Had to wait some time for our cocktail when we arrived (they only had one barman working, and he was "backed-up"... They apologized but didn't comp. us or provide us with anything other than water & bread while we waited... hence deducting one star for service. Otherwise wonderful night
