Food excellent. Service a little slow. Wife had a good sirloin, I had the Fruits de Mer, really good.
Great but very loud jazz music. Luckily the restaurant is big enough to sit far away from it.
Live music was great. It has a wide variaty of wines for decent prices. Already recommended it to a friend.
Food and service excellent but noise level was too high.
Great food, ambiance and music!
Amazing. Very romantic, cool atmosphere. Fantastic music that's why it was loud. Loved it
We had the Happy Hour oysters but didn't think they were anything special. Lobster bisque looked impressive but didn't have much lobster. The chicken was tender and tasty.
I hate to say it, but my most recent business lunch at Les Zygomates was a huge disappointment, particularly since my guest had never been there before and I chose it, despite my concern, based on recent visits, that it is not what it used to be.
I should have trusted my instincts. My Cobb salad consisted of romaine lettuce that was not fresh, a flavorless grilled chicken breast (or more accurately, what looked like half of one after it had been butterflied), half of a roma tomato cut in two, a hard-boiled egg, lardons that were entirely too hard to eat, and bleu cheese dressing that tasted like it came out of a food-service container. It was not exactly worth the $15 charge. My guest ordered a club sandwich that looked like it came from a cafeteria, complete with a large piece of aluminum foil stuck to the underside.
The latest changes to the menu are not additions. The standard fish entrees are gone, having been replaced by specials (which I would not order on a Monday, since they are likely to be leftover from the previous weekend) and in once instance, a rigatoni dish that was on the Sorriso / Bel Ari menu before it closed. That dish looked out of place on the menu of a restaurant that portrays itself as a French bistro.
I have dined at Les Zygomates at least once a month on average for the past 10 years, but since it came under new ownership and employed a new chef, the quality of the food has declined substantially. This latest meal may well have been my last one there.
Welcoming wine bar/ bistro. Food was excellent; well balanced, good sized portions. Wine selection was varied. Jazz musicians maintained an energetic but not hyper atmosphere. The waitstaff were the most varied experience. Host was friendly and quick. Water service/expediter was unsmiling, lacking all enthusiasm when speaking, and awkward when placing/removing dishes. Waiter was helpful when choosing dishes, but after taking order returned to table only twice in 90 minutes; had to flag him down to finally get check.
Would go again for atmosphere and food, and just hope for an improved service personnel.
Great food, good atmosphere and service. I would recommend this to anyone.
While there were many seats available at 8 pm on a Sat. , the Host sat us in the bar area where a jazz quartet was playing. Music was good, the Lobster crepe was rich and delicious, and the wine list was extensive.
Good service and I would definitely recommend a visit when you are in town.
One of best meals I have had. Chicken moist and skin delicious. Started with excellent Lobster Bisque. Terrific desserts.
Top service. Highly recommended.
I've been to Les Zygomates before and been very impressed with the freshness and quality of the food and the variety of the wine list. Last time I went for the Restaurant Week menu and the salmon was bland and bit overcooked, which for a 40 dollar meal was a bit disappointing. The music is always great and this is a cool date spot, but maybe skip the salmon? The small plates, salads and appetizers are all great, as is the wine.
Celebrated our friend's birthday on the restaurant week.
Staff was great and very friendly!
Food was outstanding!
Live music, artwork and spacing! Very comfortable and romantic!
What a hidden gem! It was a perfect bistro! Cannot believe I have not been there before!
Always a great spot for a quick sit-down lunch. The steak frites, in particular the frites, is fantastic.
Les Zygomates never fails to impress. Great vibe!
I have been going to Les Zygomates for over 15 years and i never regret it. I take friends there quite often and they usually have a lovely time. It is indeed a wonderful place.
As always this restaurant is very good. The service was perfect. The food is delicious. It's pricey. $30+ for 3 sea scallops - really delicious, but a little high.
5 years ago we had our wedding reception at Les Zyg, and decided to return to celebrate our anniversary. We had heard that the management had changed, so we had some reservations, but beyond some different decor it seemed more or less unchanged. The service was excellent - it was relatively quiet due to bad weather, so we were looked after by the shift manager as well as our waiter. We also received a champagne toast and appetizers on the house in honor of the occasion - a lovely surprise! My husband ordered the rack of lamb, which was cooked perfection (i.e. not overdone). I ordered the lobster roe fettuccine which was as decadent as it sounds. By the end we were completely stuffed, but we did take home a slice of lemon raspberry cake. Yum! Beyond the food, the other highlight of the evening was the live music. Yoko Miwa's trio laid down charts of varying styles effortlessly - it was a thrill to take them in. In short, if you're looking for a wonderful dining experience a little off the well-worn restaurant paths of Boston, then Les Zyg is for you.
Les Z. was recommended for a downtown business lunch, near South Station, by a friend. It's a nice place, good to very good service and a nice ambience. Can't speak to dinner or any other meal. The food was very good, but portions of tuna on the salad Nicoise could have been more generous. Also, first Nicoise I've had that did not feature potatoes. These are quibbles, under the circumstances. I would definitely recommend this place for a business lunch or lunch with a friend. It's not cheap, but you're downtown and it's a nice place with good service.
Staff was more than accommodating. The music was excellent not too loud just right. The food was great, better than I expected.
We went here before we had to catch the train to New York. The service was great and the food was fantastic. Great assortment of food and our waiter was attentive and came by often to check on us. We sat in the quiet dining room, which was nice but we are looking forward to going back soon to sit in the jazz dining room and listen to the music.
Tough to find parking. Wonderful jazz from Yoko Miwa Trio. Attentive service.
Three of us recently for lunch with a friends - good food (we had trout, salmon, and a seafood dish w/ quinqua (I love it but can't spell it) - , nice table in a small well laid out room - nice small bar (quiet and comfortable at lunch; active at night)
We had a perfect evening last Saturday when we came to Les Zygomates to celebrate our son's graduation from MIT's Master's Program. The service was superb. Each meal a delight. Everything was perfect. I highly recommend it. We came to the neighborhood a little early and walked around the Greenway which was fun. Then down to the Leather District to the restaurant. Great evening!
Great restaurant with live music (jazz trio). We loved the seabass special and the salmon entree. Great charcuterie plate as appetizer.
Food was delicious, waitstaff were very attentive, but the scheduled featured jazz music for that evening was cancelled, and they didn't mention that until we were seated, which was the whole reason I booked it in the first place. Luckily they did have a jazz pianist to play for the evening, but I was disappointed.
We used to go here 20 years ago so it was a trip down memory lane...though now much bigger. Loved the jazz and the ambiance. The appetizers were great but the steak frites was so-so. The wine list was decent. In terms of service, it was fine--nothing bad, nothing outstanding, but we were more there for the jazz, wine, and ambiance.
Lively bistro with nightly jazz. Good french cuisine.
We were there in May 2016. Good choices in the menu. everybody at our table was very happy with their appetizer and main course. Dishes were well prepared and nicely presented. A great selection of wine. Our server was very friendly and did a great job. The jazz music was nice and too noisy. Great place for dinning if you are willing to pay about $100 PP.
Nice spot! Get a corner table for romance!
From the moment we arrived we were treated with very good service. We were welcomed with my request of 2 glasses of champagne. There were no West Coast oysters available but the East Coast ones were very good. Music was a pleasure. They took requests from my wife but I wished they would have done a bit less of the "old school wedding" tunes. Bottom line, I'll be back.
Our server had to look after the whole entire room and it was clear that he was overwhelmed by all the tables. He forgot a lot of the things that we asked for, and even got my order wrong. It was Mother's Day and there were tables open with a view of the live band, however, we were seated in a corner of the next room, with absolutely no view of the band. I would not come back to the restaurant as the food was very mediocre. I expected more for a place that offered a special menu for brunch.
Food was pretty good, nice a la carte selection on Mother's Day. Very nice to have that instead of a brunch or prix fixe menu. Live jazz music was also nice, and wasn't too loud. The only issue was pretty slow service when it wasn't really that packed. I'd be back for the food but only if I'm not starving.
My husband reserved for Mother's brunch and this pretty much ruined our day. They were not prepared for the service. At one point had to flag down a hostess to ask if we were ever going to be served! Had eaten here in the past but will never come back and we loved it. After sitting at our table for for almost 25 minutes with no server our instinct was to get up and leave which we should have done. Not sure what happened to this place but it wasn't a change for the best.
I celebrated Mother's Day here for brunch. I loved the French bistro decor and menu and enjoyed the music in both the bar and dining room. One of the few restaurants with live music.
We checked out this restaurant while visiting Boston. The menu was somewhat limited but everything we got was great. After a brief mixup on who our sever would be, the service was good. The food was slow to arrive but we were enjoying the music so we didn't mind. The atmosphere was excellent.
Initially our table was in a very noisy location and server kept wandering off.
My husband had to find maitre de and we were relocated to a more congenial and quiet table and the new server was very focussed. Small food issues were addressed immediately. We were a party of 6. Food was delicious!
The front of the restaurant was loud. The music was lovely but the people talking were so loud. The bartenders were not welcoming. I stood at bar for a good 10 minutes before being helped. We were seated in the back room which was even louder than the front. The other guests were extremely loud and boisterous. There was a private party in the front back room which had a DJ playing very loud music. Our waiter was nice but had a very thick accent and I'm not sure he could converse very well. The food was great although our feta watermelon arugula salad came to the table without the feta and we had to ask for the feta. Otherwise food great to make up for the horrible loud ambiance.
