Ma Maison Ratings and Reviews
Ma Maison is one of the most authentic French restaurants in Boston. The hostess is very pleasant, and the wait staff is very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant was comfortably warm on a cold night. The food is very delicious with many healthy options. Their Cassoulet topped with Duck Confit was the best I have ever had, and their pate is always very delicious. I love their Kir Royale cocktail, and their wine selections are very good and reasonably priced. It is comfortably informal, and a great restaurant for a date or special occasion or a weeknight dinner. The restaurant is small but comfortable. The desserts are typical delicious French desserts with a special Cream Brulee and Chocolate mousse, bien sur!
Truly a wonderful choice!
We've been going to Ma Maison for years. Always excellent French food and attentive (but not hovering) service. It is a small, intimate restaurant where one can have a quiet, leisurely meal. Our waiter was very helpful and I appreciated his advice on how to order in light of my dietary restrictions. A lot of good reasons why we keep going back.
Ma Maison is my favorite restaurant. They are always exquisite. Flavors are on point, as well as ambiance and service. The waiters are top notch, and they recognize me every time I come in. I recommend this restaurant to everyone who is looking for a lovely French dinner - or any meal for that reason. I recommend their duck especially!
Four of us had dinner at Ma Maison on a bitter cold night. First impression was a welcoming, lively, little place, tastefully decorated for the holidays. It is drafty however, despite a heavy curtain at the door, so bring a shawl if that bothers you. Seating was cozy, cozy enough for us to hear our neighbor mansplaining "creme brulee" to his date, to our amusement. Service was efficient and friendly, which is always a relief to me at a French place. We enjoyed a creamy, well-flavored mushroom soup special, sprightly dressed beet and goat cheese salad, a briny lobster risotto with swordfish and steak and beef bouguigonne entrees. Plates are sparsely garnished; a handful of plain brussel sprouts, a small basket of frites, a single bland potato croquette. I had the magret de canard, which was a bit overdone and underseasoned, and garnished with less than juicy orange slices, as opposed to segments. Cutting the skin away and adding salt and pepper helped, but I don't like having to finish my dish at the table. Disappointments are bitter when entrees are $30 and a renowned chef is at the helm. Creme brulee and grand profiterole were satisfying enough to end with. All in all, it was a good dinner, and certainly worth a go if you are in the area.
Everything we ordered was delicious, but the Grand Marnier souffle was simply out of this world. The room is very attractive and it's possible to have a conversation without raising your voice, a rarity these days. The wine list was not very long, but we found a perfect bottle on that list, which is all one can ask for. All in all, a terrific evening.
There for Christmas Dinner. Everything we had for fantastic. We both had escargot and butternut squash soup for our first two courses. The bread was fresh and delicious. I had dover sole and my husband had beef Wellington for our entree. Both were excellent. They were very accommodating since everything was cooked to order. When I asked about how much breading was on the dover sole, our waiter (who was fantastic) said they could make it any way I would like so I just left off the breading. We both had chocolate mouse and cappuccino for dessert - yummy! Throughout the meal we enjoyed a bottle of Châteauneuf-du-Pape which was outstanding for $70.00. We just had a delightful time and will come back again.
As always Ma Maison delivered with five stars! Even on a busy Christmas Day the staff was relaxed, helpful, and made you feel at home. The food was amazing, creative and comforting down to the last bite. Wine fabulous - our favorite Sancerre is always at the ready. Can’t say enough. Our very favorite restaurant in Boston.
I love Ma Maison!
Have been dining there for years, since it was Bistro Pierrot. The food and service are excellent and unfussy, very French. The wine choices are good, and can be good value, the ambience is terrific. This is a charming neighborhood restaurant, good for a celebration, a get together, a date, and I have even been there with small child who was extremely well taken care of.
