Our dinner was excellent, as was the service. They only have 4 tables for outdoor dining, so be sure to make your reservation early.
I had the steak, my husband had the scallops. Both were cooked to perfection.
The drinks were amazing too!
Hope to go back again soon!

Puritan & Company is our anniversary tradition, now 8 years running! Obviously the experience was different in a pandemic but they adapted well. It's truly our favorite restaurant in Boston, the staff is so warm and personable and the food is so inventive and we love seeing what they come up with next. No one knows what the future holds, but we wish them the best and promise we'll try them for take out next 😉

I know everyone is concerned about eating indoors now due to COVID-19 but Puritan &Co has done an incredible job separating tables and even creating wood partitions between tables inside. They has some adorable outdoor seating but it’s equally great inside. Their staff is so fun and accommodating. They make you feel like a VIP.
And the food is still spectacular! I had the lobster cavatelli and it just melted in your mouth. Highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful experience at Puritan for Sunday dinner. The staff were just as attentive as you want them to be and truly seemed to be thrilled with helping.

The COVID-19 setup was unobtrusive while feeling so safe.

The food was just excellent!

Lovely to see P&Co back. Menu is in a new prix-fixe format to move with the times, but several dishes from the past make an appearance (yay swordfish pastrami!). Try the patio seating on a spookily silent Cambridge St.

We had a gift certificate our children had given us last Christmas and have been eager to use it. When we saw that they had outside dining due to COVID-19 we decided to go. The patio was in the valet parking area and the skies were threatening. There was nobody inside so we opted to eat in by the window. We felt very safe and comfortable with all the precautions they had taken. Ryan, the assistant general manager, went out of his way to make us feel welcome.
We ordered a lovely bottle of wine, oysters, Parker House Rolls and the Prix Fixe Menu. The burrata was awesome. My husband had the special rib eye and I the short ribs. His was amazing but mine was a little chewy (thus my 4 stars). The desserts were to die for. Our waitress was pleasant, knowledgeable and attentive (can’t remember her name).
We will definitely be back!

Amazing food and service. The patio is right on a busy street which is pretty loud, but it's better than nothing! They are also doing a price fixed coursed menu which is amazing and has lots of options, but you can't just go for drinks + apps etc. So happy to be back at Puritan & Co!

Consistently outstanding for years. Right now they're running a pris fixe menu where it's impossible to make a bad choice. The wine list, as always, is interesting and reasonably priced.

This was our first dinner out inside a restaurant since everything shut down in March (our last dinner out was also at Puritan). We felt very safe, comfortable and welcomed. The food was excellent, as usual. Puritan has adapted to the new social distancing guidelines in a way that does not demean the character of the restaurant. Highly recommended, even if you are skittish about eating out in a restaurant. You will be well taken care of.

You can’t beat $1 oysters 🦪. The patio is super fun and the staff are incredibly accommodating and mindful of the stresses the “new normal” has placed on all of us.
That being said, the bacon wrapped scallops are a panacea for all that ails you. Love this place.

Had dinner here with two colleagues. We ordered three appetizers, three main courses and a desert. Appetizers included brussels sprouts, octopus and raw oysters...all (except the oysters) were unique spins on common dishes and very good. For the main courses we ordered the duck, steak and scallops and this is where dinner fell short. The duck breast was cooked properly in terms of the meat temperature, but the fat wasn't fully rendered, the steak was ordered medium rare, but was served rare (too chewy for that cut) and the scallops where over cooked. That said, the flavors where all VERY good so the impact on the overall meal was less noticeable. They have a good selection of wines and many I had not heard of or tried. We went with a California blend that was recommended after I asked about it...excellent choice. Service was VERY good.

Summary: While the kitchen missed the mark on the meats consistently, for now I will characterize this as an exception (happens from time to time) and considering the creativity and overall flavor of the food, I would go back without hesitation. This place is not cheap, but adds enough creativity to their dishes that it warrants parting with the cash.

You can always count on Puritan and Co for a special occasion. We came in and were immediately greeted by a friendly host. We decided to try the 6-course tasting menu which was delicious. It was the perfect amount of food, leaving you full but not over stuffed. The homemade pasta course blew me away! In addition to the amazing food, the experience was made sweeter because of the friendly staff. Puritan and Co has a community feel to it and when you dine with them, you feel like you’re being welcomed into a family.

I can make roasted chicken with carrots and farro at home, but it is NOTHING like this. Even the simplest dish soars to elevated heights here. Please do yourself a favor and spend an evening here... I chose to celebrate my birthday here and am happy I did so.
