I took my family here for my birthday, and all agreed it was one of the best dinners we’ve had out in a long while! Highly recommended!

We went to Ma Maison to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. We arrived 1/2 hour early on the hope we would get a seating then. We weren't disappointed. We were escorted to a lovely corner table by Sam the owner and shortly afterward presented with a sparkling wine/Chambord aperitif. What a start! Then our server approached our table, in a friendly, professional manner, she greeted us presented the daily specials and filled our water glasses and provided warm bread and butter. As a former server in a Michelin rated French restaurant myself, (many years ago) I was impressed. We ordered our meals. A potage of Leeks and Brussel Sprouts for Linda and the Onion Soup Gratinee' for myself. tasty, hearty and authentically cheesed led to our entrees. I had the Beef Wellington, prepared perfectly, tender, perfect pastry crust and with a Mushroom Burgundy sauce along with vegetables of Julienned carrots and asparagus spears, I also ordered a side of creamed spinach, while Linda had the sole with lemon and capers served with rice and ratatouille, along with a side of asparagus. Portions were plentiful, yet not overwhelming in an American fashion. I also treated myself to a glass of Pinot Noir which was tasty and complimented the beef well. All the while our water glasses were attended to and asked if we had any needs in a not intrusive way. In the meantime, the dining room filled and a cue started. After our entrees our table was cleared, dessert menus presented, and desserts and coffees ordered. I ordered us a Gran Marnier Souffle which was served puffy and in time along with a surprise Mousse au Chocolat for Linda as a birthday surprise from the house. Finally, after 2 hours of pure culinary bliss we finished and paid our check. To say I scored a ton of "brownie" points with Linda for this experience is an understatement. Thank You Ma Maison!!!!

My husband and I went to Ma Maison for a special date night. We had a wonderful time. The service was efficient and very pleasant. I have lived in Paris off and on and found the restaurant to be just like a typical Parisian restaurant, but with much better service from the staff!! My husband had the lobster bisque and the duck breast. I had the soup of the day and the short rib boeuf bourguignon. Everything was cooked to perfection. We had the chocolate souffle for dessert, which was also delicious. The portions were just the right size. We would definitely recommend this spot to others.

This is our local restaurant. The chef specializes in authentic French cuisine. It is always excellent. They serve the usual foods but also offer specials each night of the week featuring dishes like tripe, kidneys and the kind of foods that are offered in France, but rarely here. It's the best French restaurant within miles.

Ma Maison was a wonderful experience, the food was fabulous and the ambiance was wonderful. It was like a little mini-trip to France. Will most certainly return the next time I am in Boston.

We met a niece here for lunch. We had not seen her for several years and needed a convenient, walkable restaurant for lunch. Ma Maison was absolutely perfect for us - with great service and excellent food. We had a very enjoyable time. Thank you!

Unpretentious. Exactly what a real French Cafe should feel like. The wait staff smiles. Happiness in a Boston French restaurant, shocking! Sir, here is more baguette, with out asking :-) Chef prepares the classics in a refreshing style. Folks, Old school French food is....GOOD. They get it right. French comfort food at a reasonable price.

The overall experience was pretty good and the food was amazing. The only thing I didn’t like was the slowness of the service. It’s not a big place to begin with so they had maybe about 2 waitstaff (not including busboys) and the hostess had to run some tables too. Other than the service, everything else was good.

Excellent reviews encouraged us to go to Ma Maison for our anniversary. The restaurant exceeded our expectations. We were seated at a quiet corner table and were welcomed warmly. Our server was patient, informative and attentive. He guided us to well-paired wine selections by the glass and accommodated our food preferences. The escargots brought back fond memories of travel in France. The venison was perfectly prepared and not gamey. The Gratin Dauphinois was perfection. The server offered the Grand Marnier casserole for dessert for our anniversary. Not too sweet but rich and light and airy at same time, we savored every bite. All in all, a special evening.

What a wonderful meal. Amazing, delicious food. 8 of us at the table and every person was so pleased. The service was exceptional.
My scallops were delicious. My husband loved his swordfish. The profiterole desserts are really big made with real chocolate. Oh, and the cocktails!!! Can't wait to go back.

We love this restaurant. The food is authentic french in both preparation and taste. Greatcwine list. What makes Ma Maison rxceptional though are the staff. Wat staff are friendly, patient and being from France knowledgeable. Special requests are handled with “of course”.
Each time we go there it is obvious that many of the guests are are known and warmly greeted (we are). It gives the place a feel of friends.

From the moment we entered we remarked how cute the place is. Service was impeccable (example: we were deep in conversation and hadn’t looked at our menu, rather than interrupt us the waiter “read” the table well and waited until an obvious pause in discussion occurred) Food was very good as well. Highly recommend
