What an outstanding experience. The entire staff was phenomenal, accommodating, efficient and we were never waiting for anything. Everything we ordered was simply amazing. The Wagyu couldn't have been better. All of the steaks were perfect. Could not have asked for a better night.

Brought my friend here for his birthday and everything was great! I added a special note to see if we could get a quieter spot and they absolutely accommodated that for us, which I really appreciated!

Service was excellent, the music was a bit loud and more than just background music. Would be good to tune it down a bit

We had an absolute perfect evening. Lindsay was our waiter and catered to all of our needs. We have such a great dining experience as we celebrated my fiancé’s birthday. The food, drinks, and service were all great. Will definitely be back! I even requested a surprise dessert to be brought out in my OpenTable reservation and they remembered! Highly recommend.

Excellent service provided by Henry — who did a fantastic job! Exactly the right amount of attention without being obtrusive on our conversation. Steak tartare was delicious. Terrific bottle of Guilia Negri Borolo.

Just a note to the kitchen, ease up on the salt on the ribeye. Less can be more.

The PX Avagado desert was a spectacular finish, recommended by Henry!

All in all, an outstanding experience and one we will revisit during our next time in Boston!

Thank you John! Henry is great and I'm sure he will be happy to read your review. Thanks for your feedback on the salt. The dessert is a creation by our very own Sommelier/Beverage Director, Hugo Bensimon, I love it too!! Jeff Osowski, GM
