Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Ma Maison. The short ribs bourguignon and the halibut were superb, the service was personable and efficient, and the atmosphere was cozy and comfortable. Look forward to returning soon!

I like having lunch here better than dinner. The food seems more flavorful and "french" at lunch than it does at dinner.

I had the pumpkin souffle with chicken stew special. It was fabulous. The souffle was flawless. We were there for a work lunch, and we had to leave promptly. The staff knew of our time limitation and did a great job of being efficient while also providing a nice, relaxed atmosphere.

MAGNIFIQUE ! It was my second visit at Ma Maison. They just changed the menu and i really enjoyed every single bites of my dinner. From the farmer soup ( RIch and tasty potage with cabbage, carrot and bacon) to the authentic Cassoulet, perfect winter stew.
Such a perfect casual and genuine atmosphère. Julien, the waiter from Paris, was the cherry on the cake. Professional, knowledgable, and so funny. The service could not be better !
Merci beaucoup !

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Ma Maison! This neighborhood gem had fabulous food, great French cocktails, and impressive service. Try the veal chop: my husband says it's the best he's had anywhere! I had the filet of beef with sauteed foie gras and truffle sauce served over creamy mashed potatoes, which was absolutely delicious. We would definitely return and highly recommend this restaurant. Thank you for a great dining experience!

Enjoyed a delicious pre-Celtics game dinner with college aged kids in town for holiday weekend. From appetizers (ran the menu from French onion soup, smoked salmon, escargots, simple mixed green salad) through shared entrees (roast salmon, coq au vin), every forkful was delicious. Service was helpful, attentive, and upbeat. Look forward to returning. Great value.

Went to Ma Madison for Thanksgiving dinner. Great table Sat at the front window. The prix fixe menu was super reasonably priced with a nice selection including a traditional Thanksgiving offering. We went for the Pâté and mixed green apps. Both terrific. One us got the Calf’s Liver and one got the Medallions. Both were superb!the service was outstanding. Very attentive with a nice vibe.

Wonderful, unbelievable, wife loved it, so French. Our son cleared his plate, enormous mountain of turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc. Wife got a doggy bag. I had escargots and then two big beef medsllions, tender, delicious, melt in your mouth, all meat, no fst, gristle, or bone, with Bordelaise sauce, and perfect pommes frites served in wax paper in a little metal holder. Had to share my frites. :-(. Got a bottle of chateau Margaux, perfect. Small slices of pumpkin and lemon pie, and s cappuccino. All enjoyed at a little window table, where we took in the street scene.

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.
