Food was good. Very quiet, not crowded. Only complaint is servers/waiters didn’t check in frequent enough. Glasses were empty of water for quite a while and took a while to grab our orders even though they weren’t crowded.
Breakfast was excellent; best omelet I’ve had in a long time.
This is my favorite place for breakfast or brunch when I visit Boston.
Thank you for the lovely Mother’s Day breakfast! Delicious!
A beautiful venue, nice and sunny with big windows overlooking Boston. Slow to get our order, slow service, and the waiter had to go back a couple times. Prices very reasonable for food and wine.
Our Waitress, Sandra made the evening! She was appropriately attentive, polite, friendly and a pleasure to deal with . The atmosphere was very nice and we had a nice evening.
Went for brunch. Ordered granola bowl and buttermilk pancakes. 10/10 on both. Granola bowl came with figs; the honey tasted great. Pancakes were very light and fluffy. Blueberry jam was really good. Went great with the whipped cream on the pancake. Maple syrup tasted quite different from the maple syrups I am used. And I am glad. Their version tasted really good.
Definitely recommend for brunch followed by wall around the area. Perfect day
Safety precautions were great. Cocktails were large and refreshing. The food was great. Service superb. Very enjoyable meal.
Quality food in a upbeat atmosphere. The service was top notch.
It is obvious this was once a grand space but at this point it needs some freshening up. We were happy because it was pretty empty so it was quiet and we were comfortable because we didn’t have to worry about to many people around during these Covid times. The food was decent. We were there for brunch. French Toast and Pancakes were yummy but Shakshuka was to liquidy with not much flavor.
It met our needs but that’s about it.
Easter brunch. Delicious meal. Menu had a good selection for either breakfast or lunch. Service was attentive.
Brunch was delicious and the service was warm, welcoming and professional!
There could have been better lighting
Great brunch. Coffee and mimosas were on point. Food was excellent.
By far the worst brunch I’ve ever had in Boston. Poorly made shakshuka and watery coffee.
Hi Meera, I'm so sorry to hear about your visit. Would you be willing to share additional information regarding the date/time of service, so we can look into this? Again, our apologies. We hope you'll give us another chance in the future. Sincerely, Grace
We had French toast and pancakes - both were wonderful, and service was quiet and quick. We'd go back without a doubt.
We understood that they might be short staffed and sensitive to that during COVID but we waiting for 15-20 minutes before anyone even came to the table so went to the bar to order our drinks. The bartender was trying to do it all. Food was great, hostess tried to do what she could. Probably wouldn't go back.
Food and service were very prompt! Nice quiet place for a date night!!
The little gem salad was fabulous. Loved the Cavatelli and the Cod, too. The restaurant is a bit dark and a bit noisy, but still a convenient place to have a great meal.
We had a wonderful brunch experience at City Table! Great mimosas and cappuccino, and we really loved the fun burrata salad! Looking forward to visiting again soon!
Wasn't sure what to expect when we walked in as it was very quiet, but livened up over our stay. We were there early and everyone seemed to be respectful of maintaining distances and wearing masks. Pretzel cheese was so yummy. They should serve it with everything. My brie burger was also very good.
Great service! I booked this for Valentine's Day and was very pleased with my experience. I had accidentally booked my reservation for 8:00am instead of 8:00pm and the hostess was VERY accommodating and still managed to squeeze my partner and I in-- even suggested we grab drinks at the bar and while we waited in the Hotel lobby-- adjacent to restaurant. The food was very delicious. I ordered the spicy bolognese and my partner had the ribeye. Highly recommend!
Arrogant manager. We were there with a party of 6. My two cousins just moved here from out of the country and only have their passports and permits as ID. We are in our late 20s so we aren’t usually ID-ed but we obviously don’t mind when are asked. My two cousins showed our waitress the permits and asked if they would be accepted. She said she wasn’t sure and will go check. We said sure, no problem. Suddenly this manager comes storming to our table announcing that these are not acceptable and he can’t serve us alcohol. We didn’t say a word and he just kept going on about the laws and COVID...we were honestly shocked. He didn’t even give the waitress the opportunity to come back and say sorry, management said we can’t accept these. We would have said ok that’s fine because it’s the law. No one once argued with these people yet we were attacked. My cousins actually had their passports in the car and we would’ve just gotten them and continued our dinner. Instead we just left because of how absurd the manager was. Went to Villa Francesca in the north end. Way better!
I loved that they had a Whole30 menu. The Whole30 food was delicious. My boyfriend got the ribeye and said the asparagus and mashed potatoes were delicious but the steak was a tad dry. Besides that everything including service was wonderful.
Great brunch / served by Victor - felt very safe - social distancing excellent- thanks Maddie, Dan & all at the Lenox - great space & great food - thanks everyone 🙏🏻👍
We dine at City Table every time we come to Boston. The servers always take special care of our daughter who has celiac disease. The staff is always pleasant and efficient. The dining room has a nice relaxed atmosphere.
Good food, good service, good ambiance
Sam, Gina, and Lorene made my experience wonderful as always!
Why can restaurants serve good coffee?

Amazinggg! The food was so good, our server was very polite and funny. I had the avocado toast... and omg the bread was phenomenal! 10/10 would go again.
Hi Bianca, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a kind review! It means a lot. I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit, and look forward to seeing you again! Best, Grace
We had a very nice Thanksgiving. The only negative was the dessert.
Food & wait staff were fabulous. Best ribeye we ever had. Everything was so delicious. Appetizer of meatballs were to die for! Looking forward to going back. Highly recommended.
A group of us went for brunch and had an excellent time. We each got different entrees and we’re all very happy. I, in particular, loved the Brie burger. We had both the standard mimosa and Bloody Mary, as well as more individualized cocktails as the day went along. The bartender was very flexible about making cocktails. Service was excellent, and felt very safe. They have no-touch restrooms and everyone was socially distanced.

Food was greasy. Just one server/hostess and 1 bartender for the whole dining room. It was full. They are understaffed,and the food was very greasy

Back Bay gem!
Hi Mary Ellen, Thank you so much for the review! We hope to see you again sometime soon. Best, Grace
While the food was excellent, the service with Camilo (pretty sure that was his name) was *abysmal*. It took almost 40 minutes to even place an order because he wouldn't come over, we never got refills (even after asking - twice) and it was very apparent the server wanted nothing to do with us. A table nearby was seated 15 minutes after us, same server and he kept checking on them (and they got their food before us), but when we tried to get his attention, he made a point to pop in on their table, then bolt out without looking at us. We weren't loud, no one was hungover or "that" customer - it was just normal brunch with four people.
Our overall trip to Boston was fantastic, but we will never go to this place again. There wasn't even an apology for how bad it was - he simply did not care at all that we were there and if I could give zero stars, I would.
Hi Scott, Our apologies again. We also received your review on Yelp and Facebook and have responded there as well. We hope you'll give us another chance in the future. Sincerely, Grace
Best folks in town
Thank you, Shelly! We look forward to seeing you again.
Menu was limited, portions were ok, service was ok, I'd go back but I'm not in a hurry
