We had a lovely waitstaff and the space itself is intimate and comfortable. The food was mostly outstanding--just a couple of mistakes in seasoning (too heavy), but it was a very quiet sort of "off" night and that might be why. We'll definitely be back.

The food was spectacular. The service was unbelievable! Having dietary restrictions makes going out difficult, but our waiter made a point to speak directly to the chef to insure that all dietary needs were considered. The restaurant was beautiful, quaint, and exactly what we were looking for to celebrate our daughter’s 17th birthday. Thank you for making her night special.

Waiters were great; knowledgeable and attentive. Food was expertly prepared, fresh, soup was hot, and all delicious. When we asked for a wine suggestion to pair with dessert, ti was spot on. A sweet space but very tiny; perfect for 2.

A little bit cold and the servant does not attend much to customers on the second floor, like providing water, and still charge 20% gratitude.

The food overall was very good, however the Maine Halibut was little dry and chewy than what we expected. The rest of the food, Steak, duck (phenomenal), steak tartare, mussels (amazing) and the dessert were fantastic...

John was wonderful! Grand Tour was the perfect setting for a last minute holiday lunch. Menu and wine this were very thoughtful! The steak frites is to die for and the wine by the glass wine selections provide a wide range of choices. Such a special, cozy and fun experience. Beautifully decorated, delicious food and knowledgeable staff.

The food and service were outstanding. The only issue we had with the entire experience was that when sitting on the first floor of the restaurant every time the front door opened you were subject to blast of winter air. It made for very uncomfortable dining. There needs to be some protection from that when dining. I’ll return when the weather warms.

Great Vibe in the Back Bay. Very good food and nice service. We arrived on time for our reservation, but they did not have any tables available and so they seated us at the bar. They were very nice about it. Busy and popular place.

Beware if you try to make a reservation for 2 they force you to sit at the bar. Really ruins date night. Food was decent but maybe a bit overpriced for what it is. Wait staff nice. Good wine selection. If I wasn’t so uncomfortable after spending 2 hours on a bar stool I would give it 4 stars.

So happy we found Grand Tour on our Boston weekend getaway. We had an excellent experience at Grand Tour. The food was delicious, elevated but not contrived, fresh flavors with bright colors and yet totally warmed the belly. Could not have enjoyed it more. If you’re a foodie, put this one on your list! Service was also exceptional. Stand outs: the Duck Breast, endive & beet salad, Bok Choy, Cauliflower w Harissa.

Small bistro with open kitchen. Not many seats, so reserve early. Menu is French inspired and rather small. We order entrees and starters & sides to share. Everything we had was excellent! Service was great. Will certainly come back.

Great spot for a date night, most of the food was excellent (we had tartare, squash, sole, duck, mushrooms, and cauliflower). I won't order the cauliflower again, but I would go back for everything else. The service was good, but understand that it is a small space, very much a bistro vibe. They serve wine and beer only, no cocktails, but the wine list was strong for french labels. They did not have coffee service at the time I went, which was disappointing, but I still plan to go back. Overall it was a really good experience.

We had the clams as an app and they were fantastic. I would return just for them alone.
Our side dishes were excellent: cauliflower and bok choy. Again I would return and just get all the side dishes they were that good.
For main course I had dover sole and my friend had the steak. Excellent.
Service was attentive without being obtrusive.
Def. will return.
