We were a party of 5 and everyone enjoyed their meals. Food was very good. Great atmosphere, relaxed and not noisy. Tables sufficiently spread out and did not feel at all like we were dining on top of others. Ended up eating brunch here the next day as we were staying at the hotel. Brunch was equally as good as dinner. Highly recommend.

Place was fairly uncrowned due to COVID, but our server was just the best. We were brought a delicious dessert for two at no cost due to our celebration. Very good Pinot Noir.

We had a fantastic meal here with great service. My husband had homemade pasta with oh so fresh mushrooms. I had the seared tuna....yum. Oh and I loved my cocktail...I think they called it a Cool Hand Luke.

We stay at The Lenox regularly - it's our favorite hotel anywhere. We had oysters, spicey bolognese, and steak frites - all excellent. A nice corner table on a freezing cold Monday night in January in Boston. We had a real nice server and thus a really nice time!

It was so so so fabulous! we will be back every time we are in Boston!!! Party of 5. Everyone loved the experience!!! The food was out of this world, the service impeccable, the room sophistication so comforting, and we felt like we were living once again!!! in the way and style we used to live Pre-Covid. Thank you for being very good at what you do! An outstanding dining experience!!!

A fun venue tucked off to the side of the Lenox. Enjoyed the vibe and the tasty choices. A bit pricey for the portion and quality but worth it for the total package. The service was fair - I'm assuming they were short staffed.

Delicious food. Great service. Doesn’t feel like a hotel restaurant at all. And, for that part of Boston, prices were actually decent. The mushroom tart appetizer was great. And the $10 glass of Malbec was pretty good too.

The food was just very basic and nothing really special. The ambience was also lacking and the space felt tired and could do with some modernising and investment

Food was not bad just very very average
Not at all what I was expecting at the Lennox hotel
It could’ve been so much more
You should hire a real chef

We had a member of our party in a wheelchair and they were very helpful and had set up a call convenient table.
Getting into the hotel requires assistance since Boylston Street door is closed unfortunately. Hotel should consider opening up for ease of handicap access.

Waited a long time without seeing our waiter. Assume it is due to staffing shortages like everywhere else.

Waiter wore mask BELOW his nose the entire time

The Spicy Bolognese is very flavorful with fresh pasta. My 11yo loved the pretzel (so did I but he ate most of it) and Steak Frites. It’s a super cute spot, cozy, a little noisy, friendly & engaging wait staff, and we will be back!
