Another great evening at City Table. Brought a friend from out of town and they thought it was perfect. Very relaxing, not pretentious, comfortable, great food and not super expensive. There were a lot of groups, but the noise level was fine. We talked for about two hours and left feeling like we had a great evening. I highly recommend this for a nice dinner with your best friend. This kind of spot is hard to find in the Back Bay.

To many things went wrong. I ordered the Duck hash with eggs and I got a bone in the hash along with a large disgusting piece of cartilage. I asked for well toast and it wasn't and my food was cold though my wife's omelet was piping hot. Assuming they were waiting for that making mine cold. My wife also asked if they were fresh mushrooms or canned and she was told fresh but obviously canned. Server was not attentive despite a small crowd.

We truly enjoy this friendly restaurant. The noise level tends to be high, but that's because it is a popular spot. The drinks are generous in size, the menu offers many options, and the hot bread and butter that arrives early is divine. Our waiter was very professional but also friendly. We felt that he truly cared about our happiness. In short, we highly recommend City Table.

Nice atmosphere in hotel (the bathrooms are located in the hotel lobby). The dining room has visual separations so it doesn't seem large. One note is that the fragrance or candles they use is heavily scented to which I had a mild allergies. The menu is varied enough to accommodate lots of different tastes (our group required healthy fish, comfort meat, appetizer meals, and vegetarian options) and price points. The server we had was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the ingredients (Avery, I think).

Single women dining alone are often overlooked in the rush to please those dining in pairs or single men- this was no exception.
Watched three other tables seated AFTER mine get drinks water and bread prior to my being approached.
The food is good but not inspired and fairly expensive although in keeping with other nearby options. Restaurant is clean, nicely appointed and there is a good selection of wines by the glass.

Great place for a a dinner with friends or a date. The food was fantastic, every meal and dessert at our table was absolutely delicious. We were very pleased with the service- our waiter was very friendly and helpful yet hands off and didn’t come to check on us every 10 min, which we appreciated. I highly recommend City Table!

This is my favorite restaurant for brunch and to have a get together with friends. The service is impeccable from the moment you enter the restaurant which is in the Lenox Hotel. There is an elevated ambience, but you get a real value in the selection and price great enough for foodies. I have already recommended this restaurant to friends today.

My girlfriend and I visited City Table for our anniversary dinner. Our wonderful waiter, Eduardo, welcomed us with champagne and expressed his gratitude that we chose City Table. Throughout the night, the service was incredible along with the food. We enjoyed Tuna Tartare and the steak filet. The food was delicious and quick and our drinks were even better. Thank you to Eduardo and the entire City Table team for a wonderful experience

Great spot for Sunday Brunch! Nice “city” vibe...Had the traditional Eggs Benedict & Bloody Mary. Every item cooked perfectly.My friends over easy-one perfect the other too hard. The waitress took it away and promptly returned with 2 perfectly “over”...she left the original 2 so my friend had a bonus!

The staff were wonderful-our waitress was exceptional.

The Lennox is a charming boutique hotel & the lobby very welcoming with a beautiful fireplace. Ladies room sparkled!

I have been to City Table for dinner before Symphony and it was also a satisfying & enjoyable meal.

Restaurant is fair. Decent food, overpriced for what you get. Staff is unprofessional. The restaurant clearly doesn’t get enough traffic as the wine cabinet is noticeably not full. The bread that was brought was probably warm at some point, but was not by the time it hit the table. We then had the Chopped Salad. Nothing to write home about. It was over-dressed and too much bacon was used. That was followed up by the Chicken Sandwich. Chicken was good, but the “house baked role” was just a sesame hamburger bun. The heaping pile of French fries and dollop of ketchup were significantly mismatched. The best part of the meal was the beverage. Bottled Allagash White for me ($8 - a little pricey in that I can buy a 6-pack for $11), and an overpriced $12 glass of Cab for my girlfriend. All in all, we probably won’t be back.

This was our second NYE at City Table. We all love it. Reservation promptly honored. Great menu plus a special NYE menu if you wish. As busy as it was we never felt rushed. Great drink menu. Server was very pleasant. I think that City Table will continue to be our NYE choice.

After reading reviews through multiple sources, I was hoping for something better. The service was great, but the food and drinks were “meh”. Tried brunch on the first morning of our stay. The other person in the party really enjoyed their biscuits and gravy. My duck hash had no flavor.
Our second attempt was at dinner the following night. We ordered the oysters - they weren’t good. Not bad...but certainly not anything to write home about. We had oysters down the street the night before and they were great. Anyway, my dinner was terrible. This time my guest agreed. “Mediocrity at its best” was their description.
Service was great, but when the food is bad - what’s the point?!

Awesome menu and outstanding service. There was plenty to choose from to satisfy a small appetite and the folks that wanted a full meal. Our waiter was attentive without being overbearing and very patient with a group of 60 year old women who hadn’t seen each other in several years.
