Food was excellent but highly do NOT suggest as I have never encountered a more rude waiter in my life. He was a french man (I am french myself) but made us feel very uncomfortable.

The food was great. Our severer was lackluster not helpful and unapologetic. The restaurant bills itself as a wine bistro but they were out of the first three bottles that we chose. One would have thought that the waiter might know this and offer apologies

Amazing birthday dinner for my wife. A great little spot we wouldn’t have known about but so happy we did. Every course was amazing and our server Colin made it all that that better with recommendations and attitude. We wouldn’t have found it if not for dine out Boston but we will be back. Just hope they add the banana foster crepe to the regular menu.

It was an almost hour dinner process. We saw our waiter once every 30 minutes. He never asked us how our food was. Our dinner had clearly been sitting out for a while and thrown into the oven before coming out. Ordered creme brûlée for dessert and the portion underneath the caramelized sugar was milky/soupy. Wine was great though but food and service was terribly disappointing.

8 of us went to dinner on a Saturday night in late February 2020. 2 of us had been there before - everyone had a nice time. The food was very good and the service was attentive. A jazz band was playing in the bar area - it might have been a bit loud to eat dinner in the bar and converse as a party of 8, but the loudness in the dining room was fine and the doors between the bar and dining room were fully open (they could have been closed partially or entirely).

Nice place to see some Jazz. There was a buyout in half the restaurant so the set-up was a bit different on this night, but it was overall a nice evening.

Les Zyg is a reliable treat. I go here most often for lunch as I find it uncrowded and unhurried. The service, however, is attentive. It is a good value as well.

Always great dining. Attentive wait staff, excellent food, and the entertainment, The Yoko Miwa Trio, are second to none. Really great jazz. I encourage people to patronize this restaurant. You won’t be sorry.

Atmosphere was wonderful. Food was really good, one of us tried the prix fix menu: the grapefruit & scallop ceviche was bizarre & no one wanted to eat it. Everyone else’s meals were amazing. Waiter was slow and unfriendly but the rest of the staff made up for it. I’d still give it a 5 star. (Ok 4.5)

There was a minor problem with our order. They handled it superbly. This to me speaks more highly of the quality of this establishment than if everything had gone perfectly. I highly recommend them.

We had a Valentine’s day dinner at Les Zygomates. The food, service and the ambience was exceptional, except the music. I expected a better actually the live music option was the only reason that I chose Les Zygomates because there are not many places having live music in the city. So the music part is disappointing but other than that the place was good.

The food and service was excellent; however, we were seated next to a lunch party where the man was OVERLY LOUD AND OBNOXIOUS. That almost ruined the entire lunch.

It was a great night to chill with a friend, listen to some music, and dress up. However, please update your website. There were items on your menu (on the site) that weren't on the actual menu, and vise versa.

Les Zygomates is a great place to listen to very good jazz while enjoying a cocktail or a glass of wine. I would go grab dinner somewhere else first though.

Good times at les zygomates. Great wine list. Food is superb and excellent oysters. Live music could have been better but fair. Not as lively as it could be. Having the band raised on a stage takes away from the feel vs. At ground level. You didn't come to see a band...you came to enjoy and partake "with" a band.
Two separate lounges and a dining room with two areas though joined at a "U" shaped venue with two entrances tries to please everyone. It may do just that and its a great place to go and enjoy excellent food and drinks with friends.

Food choice and food quality very good. I asked in the reservation and in person for a quiet table and then got seated in the middle of tables that made my business meeting more difficult.

We had a post matinee meal at 5:30 last Saturday which was just a short walk from the theater district. We were seated immediately. Our waiter was excellent and we proceeded to have a very pleasant and delicious meal. I would recommend the wine flights; to sample 4 wines for a reasonable price was great. There was a jazz band on the other side of the restaurant which was quite festive but not loud. The restaurant side was in fact rather quiet, so all in all, a rather pleasant experience. Looking forward to returning.
