Colette blends the best of French culture to bring a dynamic dining experience to Porter Square.

    Outstanding food, beautifully executed in the French style. Lovely, homey vibe. Service is a bit on the slow side.

    We waited an hour for our drinks. When they finally weren’t there after an hour we left.

    We have eaten many times at Colette. However brunch last Sunday was a really bad experience. There was a bridal shower that was so loud our older guests struggled to hear the conversation. And the restaurant made a really pathetic attempt to relocate us to the empty quieter side of the restaurant. I really don’t know what the manager was thinking but we shall now be hesitant about eating here.

    An inexperienced, overwhelmed waitress, an overwhelmed bartender, inside room deafening on a Thursday night, food late and lukewarm. We've been coming for years, and this is probably the last time.

    Collette is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. The food is interesting and super tasty, the wine selection is always good, and the service quiet and efficient. Love Collette!

    The Lemon Sole alone is worth going to this spot. Ambience is nice. Service was good. We’ll return!
