An oasis in Beacon Hill. Reminds me of great restaurants in Copenhagen. Similar to new Nordic cuisine.

Peregrine is all that you would want in a restaurant: great food, low key-chic ambiance, and thoughtful waitstaff. Loved everything I ordered: pan fried octopus, caeser salad (with roasted cabbage), sourdough bread made pink by beets and a plum galette. So very good... Looking forward to my next visit!

Steak was the worst we've had in years. The blackened fish was ok but nothing spectacular. The outdoor seating is below standard for the area, cramped, and very noisy. Service was decent but not to the level that is expected with a menu of this price range. First and last visit to what looked like it should have been a stellar experience.

Service personable and efficient, food creative and delicious, beverages exceeded expectations. Wonderful experience all around. Lower grades on ambiance and sound not necessarily the fault of the establishment, but rather precautions needed for COVID. When at full strength, and utilizing indoor space appropriately, this place will be a true gem.

Understanding that COVID has created staffing difficulties for restaurants, and going into the night conscious of such, the service was even worse than anticipated. It seemed like the staff had just started that night with no training; coming to the table seemingly every 5 minutes; no familiarity with the menu; overly casual attitude. On top of all that, it was a rainy evening so I brought and checked and umbrella, and when I got up to leave, the umbrella was gone, the staff was unapologetic and wouldn’t even lend me a hotel umbrella to get home in the rain—they gave me one that a prior guest had left instead! Clearly undertrained and new staff. Oh, and the food was not very good (though I came here pre-COVID and had no complains whatsoever).

Brought out dessert before cappuccino and they were very delayed on bringing out cappuccino. I waited about 15-20 minutes. Cappuccino machine is visible and servers were chatting and not making drink even after I asked my server about it. I canceled cappuccino.

Food was terrific but the service was spotty. Other waitstaff were quite attentive to their tables, our server was rather absent. At one point, we asked for a little time between our meal and dessert and nearly 30 minutes passed before the server asked if we wanted our check. When we asked to see the dessert menu, she accommodated and we waited another 10 minutes before her return, during which time we talked ourselves out of dessert, as a lively party was seated next to us. We asked for the check again, and waited for 20 more minutes until a different person stepped in to refresh water, and we asked again for our check which appeared and we paid and left. Our server saw us on the way out and failed to acknowledge our goodbye. We’ve been here many times before and this service experience is rather atypical and is being shared to provide a teachable moment, not besmirch the restaurant.

Peregrine was better pre-COVID but a solid experience. Service was slow, but I empathize with the challenges of fully staffing and our server was stretched incredibly thin. She was terrific though. The food was good but the menu pretty limited.

Our service was not to standard for the prices and caliber of the food. Our server served us a half glass of wine and did not offer dessert. When we commented on the short pour the server was abrupt and did not even remotely attempt to reconcile the issue. The food was great but the service was so poor we will not be back.

Absolutely brilliant, knowledgable, friendly server fully opened a restaurant that was new to us. Noticed, too late, an interior courtyard for dining because streetside on a Saturday morning had a great deal of ambulance traffic.

Thank you Geoffrey! Note, our interior courtyard features a more casual style of service, and is seated only on a walk in basis, but we look forward to having you back there when the time is right! Thanks for spending your Saturday with us and taking the time to review.

An amazing experience- every dish was delicious, unique, and very high quality ingredients. There wasn’t one thing we didn’t enjoy! The bread and cheese options were divine. Caesar salad was one of the best I’ve ever eaten. Dessert was delicious across the board. To top it all off the covered outdoor seating was so cute with a gorgeous view of Charles St and with heaters! Would highly recommend and can’t wait to go back.
