    Been dining here for years and by far the best French in the city! Never fails to impress from the Foie Gras, Duck Magret, Veal Chop or Mussels you can’t go wrong! Even the bread is fresh, warm and wonderfully delicious… Macaroons are made in-house, the crepe is wonderful but go for the soufflé… Highly recommend, you won’t be disappointed

    Four of us were celebrating a 60th birthday. We enjoyed all of our appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts. Our server made excellent recommendations when we asked her to. Bar is limited but our wines were perfect and so was an after dinner drink. Would definitely return. It felt like an authentic French dining experience with some American additions.

    We had a lovely time celebrating our anniversary at Ma Maison. The staff was very friendly and gave us complimentary drinks for the special occasion which we very much appreciated! Food was fantastic and delicious, clean plates all around. We will definitely be coming back for more!

    Knowing we were celebrating our anniversary, they greeted us with small glasses of sparkling Rose. The pate was incredible and the beef wellington and braised short ribs absilutely fantastic. Good cocktails and good wine selections. And the service was perfect. Highly recommend this place.

    This authentically French restaurant is a real find. Having lived in Paris, I felt like I was “home.” The selection of dishes includes traditional favorites that aren’t always easy to find, especially at such reasonable prices.The dishes we enjoyed were oysters, foie gras, sweetbreads, cod in sorrel sauce, and chocolate mousse. Wine choices are good and reasonably priced. The option of carafes is welcome. The place is busy and crowded, and therefore noisy, but that’s part of the ambiance.

    We went to this restaurant a couple times during a business trip for both lunch and dinner. Both times the food was excellent, service friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was very elegant and excellent for our informal business conversations. Seems to be a real gem in this section of Boston!

    We really wanted to love this place, as the reviews were great. They were obviously understaffed with 2 servers taking care of all the inside and outside table. The hostess seemed to be stressing everyone out. My husband had the lamb chops. Which were quite good. The French onion soup didn’t live up to “best in Boston.” Wr both experienced intestinal distress… from the steak tartar we believe. We wanted dessert, but had sat so long waiting for our server, that we paid and left.

    Ma Maison is a real gem. The restaurant is small, but they also have two outdoor seating areas. We sat inside on a busy Friday evening. Our server, Eunjoo, was especially pleasant, attentive, and efficient, despite how busy it was. I had the pan-seared ray fin, which was delicious and perfectly prepared. Cocktails, wine, and dessert were also excellent. Can't wait to return.

    This was our second visit. The escargots were superb as usual. Delivered very hot with an outstanding garlic/butter sauce. Plenty of excellent French bread to enjoy the dipping which is mandatory for this dish. My Cherry Duck Magret was very well prepared as ordered. The cherry sauce and the cherries were plentiful and a great accompaniment. The only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars was that my wife's short ribs were a bit dry. A side order of french fries, however, did not disappoint. Cherry Clafouti was a great ending to a memorable meal. There is an upbeat vibe in the restaurant which is nice, but the tables are very close so that a table for 2 can feel a bit claustrophobic. We learned more than we cared to know about medical programs and billing thanks to a business dinner between 2 men seated at the adjoining table. I I would definitely recommend and we will visit again.

    Went here for an anniversary dinner: Service was well paced and welcoming, despite the fact they were very busy. Food was high quality for the price, starting with warm baguette and soft butter. Favorite item was the pate, which was almost a meal in itself!
