This was our first visit to Mica and it will not be our last. We tried the tasting menu and were not disappointed - even my husband, who can be a less adventurous eater, thoroughly enjoyed everything! The service was top notch, too!

My wife and I were joining close friends for a special dinner together. Mica was perfect. We were a bit late but they had our table ready and were extremely accommodating to us. The food was outstanding, and since it is a BYO, we brought wine to accompany what we were ordering that we liked. They did not rush us at all, and each course was presented beautifully.

Very small restaurant - so a reservation is needed to guarantee a table, but well worth the drive from anywhere in the city, and worth the wait to eat there.

I can't wait to go back again when they get new seasonal items.

We had the Russian themed dinner. Preparation was spectacular and although the portions were small, we couldn’t have eaten another bit.

Mica is close to where we live in Chestnut Hill, and we feel so lucky to have such a premier restaurant in the neighborhood. It's the kind of restaurant we'd travel to, but even happier not to.

Had our New Years Eve Dinner at Mica! I love Mica and the quality of food it delivers! However, during this last visit, the food protions were not what they typically are. I was expecting more when paying $89 per person. I was disappointed but it will not hinder me going back.

Great dinner at the best restaurant in chestnut hill. The new owner is continuing the excellent modern cuisine and I’d say it has even improved! BYOB now so that is a huge plus as well.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. We are foodies, and we saw they had a tasting menu, so we thought it would be perfect for us, and it was. We were VERY pleased, and we even got to meet the owner and Chef, very nice person who is talented for sure! We told our family and friends about the experience and they are now interested in checking it out! We will be returning for sure.

We chose to do the tasting menu and it was a fantastic choice!! Every course, 6 total, was delicious and decadent! Historically, I am not a fan of salmon or lamb but didn't want to miss out on them if they were part of the tasting. I'm glad I chose to try them! Salmon was crispy and not fishy at all. And the lamb melted in my mouth! The icing on the cake was the dessert: chocolatey, hazelnut deliciousness with a grand marnier sauce.... OMG!!! And the fact that it's a BYO makes it even more wonderful!!

The food was delicious. However, the food took a while to come out. But after I ate, I didn’t mind as much because it was sooooo good. The hostess also didn’t offer to check me and my friends coat.

As locals to the area, we were anxious to try Mica. Overall the place does a good job of producing interesting dishes. The oysters with Shiitake mushrooms were excellent as were the tuna tartare and the bisque appetizers. Unfortunately the entrees and dessert were a bit of a mess. After waiting 30-40 minutes for our entrees, both dishes were overly salted and generally uninspired. The mousse dessert was also quite disappointing. The presentation was terrible as was the general texture of the mousse. Mica has a lot of potential and they obviously have inspired moments, but the kitchen seems to suffer from split-brain. As if one chef is preparing some of the dishes and another apprentice is preparing the rest. They need to work on their consistency to be a great local spot.
