The menu is somewhat limited but the food was terrific. The prices include gratuity so the overall cost is very reasonable.

The food is delicious, the service is cordial and attentive. It is for foodies, it is on the expensive side, but for our party it was worth it.

We had a superb meal at Peregrine sampling salads, cauliflower, arctic char and mussels. Each dish was unique, interestingly flavored and perfectly prepared. The dining room has a cozy feel, and is just adjacent to the Whitney's small lobby. Service first-rate.

Absolutely sublime, we had a wonderful brunch. The scrambled eggs were super fresh tasting and perfectly prepared. The overnight oats were served with an amazing homemade granola. The space is luxurious and subtle, a very welcoming and well thought out environment. Will definitely return for dinner soon!

We love Peregrine! The server was funny and attentive. She spent time explaining some of the wines we didn’t know. Food was incredible especially the shrimp with garlic and clam tagliatelle. Also the butter pinxtos were the best little bite. See you soon - we love it here!

Over priced food and small portions. They pretend to serve food from Sardinia but there is not food served from over there. They don’t even serve the most important Sardinia wine. Jamon Serano prosciutto (that is not from Sardinia) came sliced too thick and very bad presented. No bread was served or offered until I asked.. and I need to ask twice since they brought a very tiny slice. Finally I got pasta with vongole ... first.... you don’t put any cheese on pasta with fish .... second definitely not the pecorino that is already very salty.... and last the pasta was over cooked and too salty ... from the salt of the boiling water + pecorino.

So I don’t recommend to go to this place at all... and maybe some on line cooking classes if not an on site experience in Sardinia is highly recommended.

The food we delicious. The atmosphere is lovely but we weren't finished dinner and they were setting other tables for breakfast, a little strange. Also, our waitress was not very informed and not very attentive. Not sure we'll be back.

We had a delicious and most comfortable dinner at Peregrine. Although it's located in a hotel lobby, the restaurant is fairly quiet, and feels intimate. The three of us split a shrimp appetizer, and our main dishes were the chicken, mussel/clam combo, and duck, all of which were excellent. We appreciated the fact that gratuities are included. In any case, service was professional throughout our meal.

I usually enjoy Peregrine, but this time it was all disappointing. The duck pate tasted tinned. The polenta was watery and cold with far too many red pepper flakes. The Chatham mussels and clams were 45% lumps of potato. The chef has a heavy hand when it comes to seasoning. I asked for the pate without the pickled peppers which are inedible as they have so much vinegar. I asked for a few lettuce leaves. I got no lettuce leaves at all and thankfully no pickled pepper either.

Service was the worst. Waited about 40 minutes for our entrees to come out and, when we asked the waitress about their status (30 or so minutes into the wait), she acted so insulted to be asked. Not many people there either. Food was fine (when it arrived at the table) but nothing to write home about. I would not rush back.

I chaperoned 4 teenagers there on a double date. I sat at the bar and was very well cared for. They shared plates and were able to keep in their budget and had a wonderful, grown-up time.

Wonderful ambience. Service excellent - sharp but definitely not pushy. It was a quiet night and they let us linger for a long time. Lovely wines by the glass. Usually kale salad is the last thing I'd order, but I split the Kale Caesar with my dining companion and it was tender and very tasty. The roasted 1/2 cauliflower was unusual and superb. The main courses we ordered were quite good but didn't quite live up to the mark set by the salad and veg. The cookie plate, however, made a wonderful ending.

Great place all around, ambience, service, food. I like that it is better lit and quiet enough to have a real discussion vs in aloud, dark place. Food is outstanding. Some portions are modest but perfect for me. Not so great for someone hungry with a big appetite. Service impeccable. Thank you!

Delicious food in a low key environment. Service was friendly and efficient. The Mediterranean cuisine is creative and very well prepared.
Well worth a detour as the Michelin guide says!

The food and service were very good, although the portions were a bit small. Tip is included in pricing, and there is no room to add an additional tip on the check. We did see a mouse while we were dining a few feet from us, but it's Boston so doesn't surprise me anymore! Would recommend for a quiet and delicious meal.

Apart from the shrimp appetizer and their bread/butter, nothing else was edible.
Pasta dish served cold and tasteless, beef and chicken dishes were nothing special, real let down.
Dessert tasted old. They desperately need a decent wine list also... never going back.

Their policy of no tipping is very refreshing. as a result we do not feel rushed and felt the value of the dinner and bottle of wine was excellent. Our server was relaxed, informed and pleasant. Reminded us of European dinners that have a much more relaxed feel around the entire dining experience. The food was excellent.

OK. The special chestnut appetizer was really really nice. The tagliatelle with “clams and pork” was not. Too much greasy liquid with small clams, nothing special about them, and tiny tasteless pancetta bits. Pasta was somewhere between light/homemade and grainy.

I was pleasantly surprised at how fabulous the food was. Went for brunch with 4 friends. We all sent compliments to the chef. It was very busy at 12:30 so I recommend reservations for that time.

One of the meals we were served was not what we ordered. One was cold, when it should have been warm. And, there was no consideration given to us for either screw ups. To be fair, the other two meals were quite good
