Everything was awesome, the kitchen was just really slow. They did send out additional app's to tide us over though.

Menu reflects seasonal choices that keeps it updated with new dishes to try. Staff are enthusiastic and offer advice when asked about food and beverage selections. Good variety of options with appetizers, vegetables, pasta and entrees so depending on dietary preferences , everyone will be accommodated.

The dining room area can get bit loud when it is full. Bar is vibrant, patio dining to enjoy summertime weather.
Now serving brunch on the weekends too.

It’s clear the waitstaff is well trained and they were all very pleasant but that’s where the positives of this place end. It’s far too bright at dinner, and the space while trying to be trendy lacks any real style. The beef tartare was frozen and therefore lacked any flavor, the friend cauliflower was nice but not much texture. For dinner we tried the chicken merguez dish which was far too salty to be edible and the ramp spaetzle which was dry and crunchy without a sauce. Needless to say we won’t be back which is disappointing because the menu looks like it had so much promise!

The location is not what would expect when you go to the Seaport. But the restaurant has “it”. Great bar, high and low tables and great service. The staff was very accommodating. The food was outstanding and both couples were pleased with our choices. The chocolate dessert was a perfect ending. We can’t wait to go back!

Menu was excellent, and the food was all delicious. My only complaint was that the portions were pretty small, but it was still a good price for what you got. Service was excellent. The waiter noticed we were celebrating two engagements and brought over a round of sparkling rose on the house with the bill. Such a nice touch!

This was one of the most interesting meals I've ever had. It was so difficult to chose - in the end our table got a little bit of everything. The only downside- we ate too much! Excellent tastes from drinks to dessert served by consumate professionals.

The space is beautiful and service very good. The food was creative, but very uneven. Our "snacks" were outstanding, but the pasta was a bit more interesting than delicious. The mains were very composed and each element was tasty, but they didn't really come together to create a cohesive dish.

Went with friends who hadn’t been to Chickadee previously. We all enjoyed the food and service. I asked specifically for what looked to be the quietest table. Received it, and were mostly able to converse easily. #grateful.

Both drink and food menus were updated from our last visit. The ever yummy chick pea fries and trout dip remain. New stuff was equally good—especially the lamb and duck.

The staff were all welcoming and helpful. Will return soon.

Restaurant is modern and cool. Food and cocktails are great. Went for brunch only on Saturday and Sunday. Wife had smoked trout toast. Trout had orange flesh like salmon with hollandaise, cousin had lamb sausage bowl, I had asparagus noodles with carbonara. All were great! Asparagus Carb. is smaller but delu so start with something first. Will go back for dinner and expect good things

Food was good but service was terrible. The small plates came out quickly and then we waited 45 minutes for our mains. No apologies. No acknowledgement of the slow service. For the price, there are too many other consistently good restaurants that we enjoy in Boston. We would not go back.

The service and food were excellent. We had a small child with us and although they didn't have a kids menu it didn't matter because the server was ready with dish ideas for her to choose from. The asparagus carbonara is a must try for anyone going for the first time. Also, even if you think you are too full for dessert, trust me it is worth it, get a dessert. We had the carrot cake and it was even more delicious than it looked (and it was beautifully plated).

This is easily among the best 2-3 very best restaurants in Boston, along with Sarma. Each dish was innovative and and tasted amazing. My only tip would be to order as many dishes as you can. I’m so glad Chickadee is a restaurant in Boston.

Was in town for a conference and squeezed in an early dinner at Chickadee. I’m so glad we were able to get a reservation, it was amazing food and a fun atmosphere. They were able to accommodate requests to omit meat from the pasta dish I ordered, which I really appreciated. We ate plantbased and local and it was great!!
