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.

Chickadee has well-prepared and really interesting food. I have been twice and not been disappointed either time and will definitely go again. The wine list is small but interesting and the service is great. If you want to try some great flavors - check it out -

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

Delicious food, interesting menu options, and great service. The ambiance is low-key, relaxed, and inviting. The only element that was unremarkable was the decor.

I'd go back in a heartbeat.

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!!

The food was fabulous. Will go again and will recommend it. Wish you didn’t advertise the 2% kitchen fee. Add it in to the food somehow. Find a way to pay your staff without patrons feeling they have to. Also, only two vodkas! I think you could add a grey goose option.

We went for brunch with our toddler. The kitchen was very flexible ( she has diet restrictions) and the pancakes ( of course!) were her favorite. It’s a small menu, different , original and tasty. Nice atmosphere, friendly and relax. We definitely would like to come back for lunch or diner.

Whatever complaints I had about the experience (it took a long time to be seated, the staff seemed a little bit under-water so the timing was a bit off) were more than offset by the food. The duck was outstanding; probably the best I've ever had. The smoked sea trout dip was stellar. The fusilli and asparagus carbonara were winners. I'd say skip the skotch olives, but everything else was perfection.

Exciting flavor. Great atmosphere. Home made pasta unique. I’m a chickpea fries convert. The yogurt and preserved lemon dip added a tang to their lightly crunchy being. Roasted beets with dukkah on yogurt. Corzetti with blood orange. Friendly efficient service. Ask for Rachel. Best server ever. This place is a new favorite.
