Raoul says: Best of Boston
The most authentic and delicious French food in the Boston area. Interesting menu. My favorite is the combination soufflé and tenderloin on Tuesdays, but the sweetbreads are also a standout on Thursdays maybe. Wonderful wait staff. And sitting in the parking lane on Cambridge Street is an extra thrill. Looking inside, we saw plexiglass dividers around every table. So it looks as if it is safe to eat inside too.
I actually think Ma Maison is perfect for what it is. Five stars for that, which is a top notch, personal neighborhood restaurant in Beacon Hill. We out of town visitors help support this great establishment. Thank goodness they let us in! And on a cold night let us sit indoors ( safe spacing and staff precautions for COVID, of course).
This Maison has some amazing. original dishes, but mostly great renditions of classics.
Like the Beef stew, or Grand Marnier souffle, or lobster bisque.
Delicious as always! The food and bread are fabulous!
Great accommodation for social distancing with partitions inside. Food was amazing
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.
We are lucky to still have such a fine restaurant. Let's support it!
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.
Outstanding food and service
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.
Excellent all around
Superb meal. More expansive menu!
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!
Adorable French bistro. Fantastic menu with a variety of options difficult to find in the area. Masterfully prepared and plated. Will be back, no question.
Best Salmon I have ever had. Would definitely and have recommended. 10/10
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.
Birthday dinner for my husband. Food, Service, Ambiance and value . A neighborhood gem for sure
Would go again.
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 is my favorite "neighborhood" restaurant. The food and the service are always excellent....I highly recommend it.
Excellent, authentic French cuisine at fair prices. We love going there!
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.
A wonderfully authentic French menu, with service as good as it gets. Absolutely feels like you’re in Europe with this perfect combination. Highly recommend!
This place really is special. Great food and great service. Give them a shot.
Fantastic meal---highly recommend the veal and duck. Steak tartare was amazing with an absolutely beautiful presentation. Service is always friendly and inviting.
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...
We always have a great time at Ma Maison with a champagne cocktail to start, wonderful French dishes and desserts. Save room for dessert!
The escargot is wonderful and we loved the mussels. We have been here several times and EVERYTHING is delicious. Felt like we were sitting in a cafe in Paris.
We love the French cuisine!
Yet another exquisitely prepared and presented meal at Ma Maison...utterly delectable. A marvelous experience, as always!
Food was excellent. We were very impressed
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.
Great food, and reasonably priced. Excellent service!
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.
The new outside patio is great. Ma Maison did a good job creating a place to eat on the sidewalk. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding.
THE BEST FRENCH RESTAURANT... PERIOD!!! Everything was amazing... the mussels are incredible. The French Onion soup is the most delicious one you’ll ever find. My guests were so pleased!!! Thank you for another incredible meal, Ma Maison!!!!
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.
Great food at a reasonable price. The outdoor seating was fine, perhaps a little close. A lot of street noise as expected, but the staff was wonderful.
