The food was fantastically prepared and presented. I started with the Spiced and Seared Broccoli and was pleasantly surprised by how flavorful it was. For an entree, I had the Potato Gnocchi with King Crab. Magnificent! Light and delicate gnocchi with a rich and tasty butter sauce. I highly recommend both.

On a side note, the Groni was one of the best Negronis I’ve had to date.

All in all, a great dining experience and one you should go out of your way to see for yourself

Well-prepared local ingredients in this farm-to-table neighborhood restaurant which is well worth the trip. Emphasis on seasonal produce, with particularly interesting vegetables dishes - great for vegetarians. Good pastas, charcuterie, meat the 6 course seasonal tasting menu is a fun splurge for special occasions.

This New England based restaurant had excellent service and outstanding food. The server was very knowledgeable about wine and quite helpful with the menu. One of had the gnocchi (superb), another the steak (perfectly cooked) and I had the baked cod over lobster sauce. It was one of the best fish dishes I’ve ever had.

Visiting Boston and read abt this place on Trip Advisor. Made reservations but got there 30 min early. They still seated us. Tried chef’s sampling. Waiter Warren was one of the best ever. Very attentive and our water glasses never got below half full. Food was amazing and service by Warren and other waitstaff was incredible. Between each course, our plates and utensils got cleared and table wiped. Everything timed perfectly. Highly recommend!!!!

We enjoyed our dinner at Puritan. The food was the highlight. Everything we ordered was very flavorful. Appetizers are generous in size. Our only complaint was the cocktail drinks. They are delicious -- just wish it had less ice more alcohol :) Our friend's drink was especially loaded with ice, which dilutes the drink quite a bit.

This place is delightful. Modern farmhouse vibe in the middle of Somerville, and probably some of the best restaurant service we've had recently. This is a well-run establishment with a high functioning team that knows how to collaborate, and it pays off for guests. The food is excellent -- well prepared with unique but clean flavors -- and the wines are interesting -- we had some varietals we hadn't heard of before. Definitely going back when we have the chance.

I was in town visiting my niece who just started college. I wanted to treat her to a nice meal. We were both excited about Puritan & Co. they called me the day before to confirm my reservation and see if I had questions. I was impressed with that and they were very nice.
We were promptly seated for our reservation even though we were 10 minutes early. The service was slow and the starters were mediocre. We had the burrata pesto. It was good but needed something to balance the large amount of cheese like toast points or something. We also had the crudo which was mostly watermelon and hardly any tuna.
The entrees we had were good: lamb and crab linguine. The desserts were also just meh.
Overall, the atmosphere is energetic but hard to hear, service before being seated us great but then got slow, food is mediocre at best.

Loved Puritan & Co! Oysters are super fresh & yummy. You can get a variety of dishes to share, and judging by the tables around us all of the dishes were beautiful. The Lamb dish was amazing, and they even put the yogurt dressing on the side as members of our party were lactose intolerant. The servers are so kind and thoughtful. Definitely will come back!

We split the Sunday roast beef prix fixe special. Plenty of food, perfectly prepared, very satisfying, delicious. Our waiter was terrific - just the right amount of attention. Excellent craft beer on draft. Sunday night was pretty quiet but I can see how this place might get hopping on a weekday or weekend night. We will be back!

Second or third time there. Love the menu and overall food was delicious this time, but both of our entrees were SALTY! and our waiter had ZERO personality... couldn't even get a smile out of him... we asked for more of the AMAZING bread (warm buttery rolls sprinkled with salt) and they arrived cold. I'll go back but crossing fingers for a better experience next time.

The food, drinks, and ambiance were superb as always. We got the 6 course seasonal menu and one thing that could have significantly improved the experience was shortening the time between courses from ~30 minutes to 15. Our waiter did acknowledge how long it took (and gave us each a glass of wine) which we really appreciated. Will definitely keep coming back to Puritan and Company but may not necessarily order the tasting menu again.

Our meal could not have been better prepared. In fact, the whole dining experience was superb. Servers showed they really cared about our meal, the sommelier stopped by and shared a pour of a beautiful Italian red, and the food was inventive, fresh and local, and absolutely delicious - every course. The bass, with its salty crust, was a standout, as was the pasta course of our tasting-menu selection.

Highest rating and recommendation for this beautiful and comfortable restaurant. I'm so excited that we live but a 12-minute walk away!

Our night at Puritan & Co was perfect! It was our second visit to this restaurant. They warmly welcomed us, knowing that we came to celebrate our engagement. Staff members were very friendly, yet polite/not invasive. We had the 6-course menu du chef, which was divine! They made sure we had no allergies or specific preference before letting the chef be creative with the various plates. Everything was delicious, fresh, and local. And we took the wine pairing option, for which our server gave interesting info. The ambiance was lovely as well; while it fits well for a romantic dinner, groups and birthday celebrations are welcome too (and the decor is beautiful!). The place is lively without being too noisy. I just love this place! Will keep recommending it to friends for sure! Thanks, Puritan & Co :)
