We eat here frequently. The food is always excellent quality, great value and delicious. They also have wonderful daily options to choose from. We’ve been there many holidays and also as our ‘go to’ local restaurant. The employees are always eager to provide a great experience for everyone. We ate inside with clear partitions between the tables. There is one outdoor area and it looks like a second one will be opening.

Best of Boston for authentic French fare and ambiance. It’s as if you were transported straight to Paris. Each dish was better than the last. Highly recommended unique dishes include steak tartar (huge portion for an appetizer) and foie gras. Crepes and soups are delicious. Excellent staff (french) and service.

Our experience was outstanding. Excellent food and service. One of the things we appreciated: no plates cleared until both of us had finished eating. Also a generous celebration of a birthday! Thanks for making this experience successful and stress-free.

As always, food was fabuloous - a great fixed price 3-course menu for Easter with lots of choice for all 3 courses. Very busy, so service was slower than usual (busy kitchen!) but the wait staff are excellent! Can't recommend Ma Maison highly enough!

We ate outside on the street across from MGH on a Saturday night, 7:30 pm. A few ambulances, which you have to expect, but otherwise, the ambience was nice. The spacing of the tables was good to allow for quiet and private conversation, and the staff really hurried to bring the food from the kitchen hot, in spite of the extra distance outside. Service was attentive but not intrusive, and the food was fantastic. Ecellent wine list and good recommendations. Portions are responsible in terms of health and sustainability ... little waste. We'll be back. :)

Finally decided to venture out of the house and dine-in. The food and service were great, just as before Covid. They have clear plastic barriers between tables so it felt "safe". Actually I hope they keep the barriers after Covid because we could still see everything but the noise level was reduced. It made for a more intimate dining experience.

We went in because of the Dine out Boston menu, but (as we always do) ordered some “extras”. The beef tartar is incredible. We opted for the “spicy” version and it did not disappoint. The hint of horseradish was a nice compliment to the beef. They do only have a cordial liquor license, so the bar selection is limited-however there is an extensive selection of wines and the gin is a perfect addition to their cordials. There are plexi-glass partitions between each table giving a nice private dining experience; even though the wall are clear, there is a sense of privacy. I can’t wait to go back.

The food in this restaurant is kind of tasteless. I highly doubt a French cook is in the kitchen. The ambiance is on the romantic side, but that's about it. I'll never go back. The only thing that was delicious is the bread. I wish I knew where they bought it from.

We had a marvelous meal at Ma Maison. The wait staff were quite attentive and the food was great! I had the escargot to start - they were wonderful!We had the cassoulet and the scallops which were great. The best was dessert - we had the grand marinier soufflé. It was outstanding! The wine list is comprehensive and reasonably priced. We had a gigondas which was very nice.
