We really enjoyed our meal at Ma Maison. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We ate indoors (no room outdoors, which has heaters). Ventilation was good and tables well spaced. It was quite noisy, though that was likely due to a particularly noisy group. We had Beet Salad and Onion Soup appetizers. Beef Bourguignon, Scallops, Slow Roasted Salmon as main courses, tart tatin and grand marnier souffle for dessert. (Yep, too much food!) All yummy. Pricey but not outrageous. Ambiance felt like a classic bistro. Would definitely go back.

This is my 6th or 7th time treating myself to chef Jacky Robert's classic French menu, priced right and served with relaxed professionalism. The street-side tables have flowering vines on garden fencing, heat lamps, party lights, white tablecloths, and COVID spacing. I also noted that plexiglass partitions have been installed between tables indoors. This place is sooooo ready to keep diners safe and happy as long as the pandemic persists! All your fave dishes are on the menu, cooked to perfection. We loved our duck confit, frisee salad, leek-chevre tart and escargot. The bill for lunch in France? Ridiculously low. Reserve now and join this bistro's cadre of loyal neighborhood regulars.

The 4 of us ordered different dishes and all were very good.
The service was good.
The setting was also quite safe. I had reserved outside but the 4 of us fell safe to dine in doors as the restaurant has put glass partitions between the tables.
We ordered take out from the restaurant when that was the only way to order their food and we have always been very satisfied.
We highly recommend this restaurant.

Solid classic French food in typical Parisian surroundings. Friendly atmosphere and given the Covid-19 pandemic, all involved are very thorough and accommodating. A lovely meal.

They were wonderful at Ma Maison! Treated us to a glass of wine and a wonderful Crème Brûlée for our anniversary! I pre-ordered my Dover Sole and my boyfriend had the Coq au Vin and they were both cooked to perfection! We’ll definitely be back!

They have arranged seating outside with heated lamps and that really makes the difference on a chilly fall night. Now I know a place where I can sit outside comfortably during COVID times. Food and service both were great. I ordered the Lamb shank, escargot and the chocolate mousse, and everything was very delicious. Only the french cocktails were underwhelming, have had better French 75 elsewhere.

Crispy poached eggs with frisée and bacon. Superbe! Plus wonderful bread and butter. They have created a lovely al fresco dining space with real greenery that provides a welcome barrier from the street. Also
Excellent people watching.

Ma Maison remains one of our favorite Boston spots for a nice dinner out - lovely staff, delicious hearty food, and classy yet not stuffy ambience. This was our 5th time here and definitely not our last! Appreciate the love that Ma Maison’s team puts into creating a wonderful dining experience.

It was our anniversary dinner. It was fantastic from start to finish. The food was great, the server was knowledgeable and the recommended dishes were outstanding.
We've been to few french restaurants in nyc but by far Ma Maison is our favorite. Can't wait to go back when we make another trip to Boston...

Fantastic food. Portion sizes were appropriate for lunch (when we went). Service was pretty good, small mix up when waiting for our check back but otherwise very professional and prompt. Outdoor area was cute and made you forget you were on Cambridge street in Boston.

I like the simplicity of the menu which features some traditional French standbys along with more audacious offerings like pigs feet and tripes on a weekly basis. Good for Ma Maison for sticking with its mission to bringing real French food to a simple bistro setting at an affordable price.

We were four dining out to celebrate a birthday and chose Ma Maison. We’ve dined there before and the food and service was excellent. On this visit we found the food bland and lacking flavour. We all had to heavily salt and pepper each dish. Perhaps we caught them on a bad day as the food was not up to date par.

Tough to write about noise level, since we ate outside! But beautiful day, great food, as usual, and service. It’s the first restaurant we’ve eaten at since “this thing” began and definitely worth the wait. My friend loves theIr liver and finished her plate, and the smoked salmon croissant also excellent. Couldn’t finish my fries or the bread brought to the table, so took them home to my husband, who was very appreciative! Never a bad meal.

Restaurants face challenges when outdoor seating is across the street from a hospital emergency room entrance. They have done a good job of "landscaping" the perimeter to improve the ambiance. Food and service were excellent. Waiter told us the pate was large enough to share (and it was), mussels were tender and frites were crispy, and we had room for dessert. We ordered a bottle of rose with our lunch which was a bit pricier than I expected, but I didn't confirm the cost before I ordered. All in all, an excellent birthday lunch and a place I will recommend.
