The food was really good but they ran out of so many items. We had to keep adjusting our order. Wish we could have ordered what we wanted.

The menu was limited and the food was subpar. The Branzino fish was served with the head still attached which turn my stomach too much to eat. My date ordered the prime rib which was heavily rubbed with a pesto sauce that took away from the natural flavors that a prime rib has to offer.

Can't wait to go back! Outstanding evening despite pandemic restrictions! There were four of us and so we sampled many items on the menu - from sourdough bread to chocolate tart, everything was artfully presented, interesting and delicious! Thank you!

It was great to find a patio off the beaten track that had well-spaced tables. We had a really good meal and appropriately attentive and safe interactions with our servers. We enjoyed ourselves.

Seated outside in a nice area on side of building. Very attentive staff,Cassie was excellent. Food was well prepared and timed just right. Everything tasted great! This was first restaurant experience in the COVID age and felt safe and relaxed. Definitely give this place a try when in Boston!

Somewhat disappointing meal - foie gras with boudin noir was good as was the chocolate ganache tarte. The salmon was flavorless (no hit of the "citrus yuzu sauce") and the "smoked eggplant" crudité was not as good as I've had at some middle eastern holes-in-the-walls.

Also super uncomfortable directors chairs and wobbly table.

Looking at the regular "non-covid" menu on here. I feel like they dumbed down the menu to save money, it was like a bad Dine Out Boston menu. I understand the need to simplify and constrain costs, but I feel a little cheated.

Also - I was using a gift card, and they wouldn't let me put any of the remaining balance towards the tip, which I've never had happen before, in fact I did it at Rochambeau just the day before with no problems at all. It's cash!!

Really appreciated the outdoor set up. The staff was quickly present but not hovering and seemed to work will together. Had the whole branzino which was fabulous and you should definitely get if it's an option! Interesting cocktails but probably better for wine.

Their outdoor seating is a total wind tunnel and very uncomfortable to eat. The food was really good and service was good, as well. I would just not go back for the outdoor dining experience.

Great food and service! We had a later reservation outside, my only complaint is that it was very dark at the tables making it hard to see the menus and eachother. Adding some candles would definitely solve this problem. Otherwise everything was great!

Great food, a little bit pricey for a small amount of food. I thought it would have been more. My partner had to order another food at a different restaurant to satisfy his hunger. Excellent taste but I don't think I'll be going back again.

Very nice restaurant, food was very good but not outstanding. Host and waitstaff very efficient but business oriented. We were there for Dine Out Boston. It could be me but the smoke vanilla ice cream wasn’t a fan favorite.
