Ma Maison Ratings and Reviews
Oysters were great as a starter. Service too intense with Chinese waitress at hand at every turn filling our wine glasses and collecting plates while we were still chewing. Noise levels acceptable when the bookings phone wasn’t ringing throughout the restaurant. Food good but overpriced.
A wonderful French casual spot with fine cuisine in Beacon Hills. Legendary Chef Jacky Robert, former owner of petit Robert bistro, pay tribute To French Gastronomy.
When you dine to Ma Maison, it s like flying To Paris. All french classics are outstanding. Incredible country pate, the best cheesy onion soup ever, the authentic beef bourguignon, the unique tripes provencales, the fantastic duo of french sauvages (boudin noir and andouillette) with potato gratin.... So many options, hard to find in new england. .. veal kidneys, sweetbreads, calf s train.... prepared by the only french master chef in Boston.
Very casual, friendly and warm atmosphère. Impeccable, professionnel and charming service with french waiters.
All simply the best french restaurant in Boston !
My wife and I chose to dine at Ma Maison after reading through the reviews, and were also excited to try Chef Jacky Robert’s cooking. We made a reservation and were seated right away at a nice table in I’m the back. Sam, the owner, was welcoming and even offered us two complimentary kir (a French cocktail). Afterwards we ordered a bottle of the Beaujolais nouveau. For dinner, I ordered the foie gras as a starter, and my wife ordered the smoked salmon - both were delicious. For the main course I tried the special of the day, which I have yet to see at another Boston restaurant: the Tripes à la Provençales (a personal favorite of mine). It was exceptional. My wife had the sea scallops which she thoroughly enjoyed. For dessert our waiter recommended the grand marnier soufflé, and it was a perfect ending to the meal. We cannot wait to return to dine here again!
This was a chance to catch up with some family we rarely see. The restaurant was very homey and comfortable. The waitstaff was professional: always aware of what was going on at our table but not hovering. The food was excellent from onion soup to duck to scallops. We recommend highly and will be back!
We made a reservation at Ma Maison based on Open Table reviews. On the day of our reservation, we walked by and stopped to take a peek in the windows. We saw that it is a really pretty restaurant with an authentic French Bistro look. A local gentleman saw us looking in and said: "The food is great here, and the service is really excellent."
He was right.
A nice traditional French restaurant. You would think you were in Paris sitting in this restaurant - very cozy and romantic. The food is also traditional bistro fare - the duck was good, as was the onion soup and pate. While not a huge menu, I would have been happy with anything on the menu. It's nice to see such a great selection of neglected dishes. Dessert was a giant profiterole, and they weren't kidding. It is definitely to share. Really good champagne cocktails as well. I can't wait to go again.
Small, delightful and intimate restaurant. Enjoyed meeting and talking with couple at next and close table. Thankfully there is no music - a rare find these days. Service is wonderful. Food was very nicely presented but each of us (3 people) found it somewhat lacking in overall taste. Nevertheless, we plan to return to try it again. It is one of the more intimate and pleasant restaurants we have found in Boston where a quite place, where you can enjoy a conversation with your meal, is a rarity today.
Delightful restaurant in an unexpected location. Excellent menu, high quality cuisine, and a modest but well-chosen wine list. Deservedly busy on both evenings we visited, but service was polite, friendly and efficient, in a very pleasant atmosphere. Compares very favourably to more expensive French restaurants elsewhere. Highly recommended.
We chose Ma Maison for a birthday dinner. It’s not pretentious; it’s just good food like you’d find in a regular restaurant in France. It’s not trying too hard to be “nouvelle” anything. The food was really good— not fancy or twee, just really well cooked. I had short ribs that were incredibly tender; my hubby had pan seared scallops. Both were quite tasty.
Our waiter, Denis, was attentive and pleasant without being overbearing. The service was fast and correct. We shared a smoked salmon and brioche appetizer and finished our dinner by splitting a chocolate mousse. We were both satisfied without being overfilled, so the portions were appropriate.
As I said, this isn’t a stiff and formal French restaurant but the quality was very good. I would go there again because even though it’s on the moderately pricey side, I felt that we got our money’s worth.
This has become one of my favorite restaurants in the area, especially for special occasions, or when I have company from out of town. My ONLY complaint is the noise level. It’s small and crowded, and sometimes very difficult to hear. But the food is excellent and the service is outstanding. I give them my highest recommendation!
A true French experience! Great food and attentive staff. The ambience is fabulous.
The only hiccup to the evening. They do NOT have a full liquor license. They have limited beer, wine, and faux cocktails. While that didn’t take away from how fantastic the meal was, I had been tasting a martini all day and was disappointed when I couldn’t have one.
Charming Restaurant with excellent service, There was a very loud large table that spoiled the whole evening Food was a big disappointment Steak Tartare very over dressed French Onion soup great flavor but room temperature. Duck Breast over cooked and the whole plate was room temp. Calves Liver very overcooked, Sole again room temp. We wanted so much to love the place because it has the look of a neighborhood Gem. May try it again if there is not a huge party going on.
