Every course was delicious. Best Tuna Tartare we've had. The burrata was sitting in a bed of pesto...delicious.
Steak au poivre also very good...cooked perfectly and sauce was just right. Duck Magret accompanied by a wonderful salad.
Highly recommend!

I’ve been here before and the food and service were always amazing. I went for restaurant week and the food was awful. Every bit of it. The service was nonexistent. I’m disappointed that I chose to go here for restaurant week.

nice place to go on a date or special event. there's an area for the jazz performances and a quieter area. we ate at the jazz area and it was loud, but enjoyable music. i'm sure if you wanted a quieter experience you can opt out of the jazz area and have a nice meal!

Enjoyed dinner here during restaurant week, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The menu had many choices so it was difficult to decide. Calamari, Steak Frites, Mushroom Ravioli and the Molton Chocolate Cake were all wonderful. Service was very good as well! Hope to return soon to try their regular menu!!

Food was very mediocre for the price. Service was terrible. Host was very unpleasant. Asked to be seated away from the live music when I made the reservation but they still sat us right by the music. Took so long to get our orders in. Got the wrong food delivered to the table. Took so long to get the next set of food after every course. And of course it took so long to get our bill settled. Would not recommend. I can get get better food, service, and bang for my buck in any of the other neighboring restaurants.

Food very good. Service service service. Way understaffed for the evening. Our server was very short and rushed. Took forever to clear plates and service bar orders. However food was very good. The band and surroundings fantastic. I would say if ownership is reading this, up staff high end food needs high end service

I went here for lunch with friends I had not seen in a long time (we live hundreds of miles apart) and we found the restaurant to be very quiet so we could catch up. We all ordered different food items and everyone was pleased with their lunch. We did not have any wine or beer but they were very attentive to refilling out water or iced tea drinks. I did not pay but the prices were very reasonable for a first class restaurant.
To get there I took the train from Providence where I was visiting other friends and the walk from South Station was very brief and easy. The Bostonians took the MTA from Cambridge so there were no parking issues.

This was my first time here- my sister and I sat at the bar and had a great lunch- came in on the train so we needed someplace convenient to South Station, and it was. Our bartender was great, asked him about ordering some side dishes that were on the dinner menu- he was very happy to check availability for lunch. We will be back

Not sure what happened, under staffed, or just bad service.
Why ask is if this is a special occasion, acknowledge when I arrive we have someones Birthday, however completely forget. Waiter came to the table, once to take order, deliver food and drop off check. We were never checked on during the meal.
Then to top it all off, the only desert that they forgot to bring out was the Birthday girls. We all waited thinking, hey maybe they are taking their time and going to do something special..maybe a candle? Nope, they just forgot about her.
Food was good. They did apologize and remove cost of desert. Not impressed.

I enjoy this place more since it has been remodeled. Good service to get us and out as we were under a time crunch. Salads are nicely prepareded. Nice variety of menue options. The steat tip salad and steak frittes tends to be tough and not the best cut of meat. Good bread with wonderful butter. Nice jazz in the evenings.
