    Very wonderful experience. Portions were a little on the small side, but everything tasted great. Maybe just order one more appetizer than you might have ordinarily ordered.

    Tasting menu was ok - Was not blown away by any of the dishes, but the octopus was perfectly cooked and the squid ink pasta w salmon and dill was also good. The final dish, the duck, was probably the worst dish I’ve ever had at any restaurant, and its unfortunate thats how our meal ended. Dessert was good but also saved us from the taste left in our mouths from the duck! May try this restaurant again and stick w the regular menu.

    Excellent food and a great menu. We had been to P&Co when it first opened and then forgot about it since we live in downtown BOS. So glad we revisited - we had a lovely time and a delicious dinner from the swordfish pastrami, octopus to the pasta and cod. Will be back!

    Jane and I both thought that it was a class act. The celebration of food, friends, family. There was just enough glitter to make it festive, but not so much to be gaudy. The food was AMAZING, and it was so good to finally find Joe, our dear friend from Legal Seafood who we lost track of during the pandemic. We'll be back soon.

    This has been a long time favorite and never disappoints. We had the tasting menu and it was so much fun and delicious. It is a bit expensive, but so worth it. Our friends who came in from the burbs loved it as well. We will always return to Puritan. Our waitress was great, helpful, non-intrusive and a lot of fun! I even copied the banquette seating in my own home! Looking for a restaurant that is always wonderful, go to Puritan & Company.

    The food and drinks were fantastic though the entree was over salted (I am not usually too discerning about salt levels but this was a bit much for even me). Otherwise great, assuming it was a one off. I would return.

    Puritan and Company had come highly recommended to us and we were very excited to try it. The restaurant has a very inviting and warm ambience. We were seated by a business-like hostess at a very nice table at the front by a big picture window. The wait staff was warm and friendly and helpful in making food and drink selections, but also disappeared for stretches. Unfortunately, the food was disappointing and did not measure up to its reputation, particularly when considering the price. Two of us ordered the pork chop which had good flavoring but was fairly conventional and undersized in portion. My son would have happily eaten two more. The accompanying cauliflower and potatoes were pretty bland and somewhat cool to the touch. The fusilli with short rib was good but not great and the cod was okay but unimpressive. Appetizers including the fried mushrooms, pear and goat cheese salad and fig and chevre toast were average at best (heavily fried mushrooms, unripe pears) and decidedly unimaginative. The brussels sprouts were delicious and a stand-out but unfortunately our two orders arrived 10 minutes after the entrées for some unexplained reason. The restaurant wasn’t particularly busy when we sat down so I can’t imagine that the kitchen was overstressed. We elected not to get dessert and the manager generously brought us some thing to take away as a gesture but it wasn’t really clear why as we hadn’t complained nor had there been any acknowledgment of any mistakes on their part.

    Fantastic food, cozy and welcoming environment. My friend and I sat in the style of seat where you share a corner, rather than sit fully across the table - which is actually my favorite set up, perfect for catching up. Everything that showed up was delectable: bread to coffee! Service was polite and helpful.

    Have been a dozen times and whether at the bar or at a table, service is always premium and the food and cocktails are always delicious. Love the atmosphere - good for a date, with family or for a girl's night. Come early and sit at the bar, otherwise reservations are key.

    Had a lovely experience here. Cocktails were wonderful, and service was exquisite. We had a member of our party with celiac and they were extremely accommodating - including gluten free crackers with the burrata so that we could all enjoy it. We had cod and two pasta dishes as well as apps and dessert - all done beautifully.

    Our server got almost every element of the order wrong. When one member of our party didn't receive their entree, we had to flag down another server to help us, as ours had gone MIA. Then the food came out cold. No one, including the manager, came by to address the situation. P&Co was once one of my favorite spots in Inman, and I appreciate the constraints that restaurants are under post Covid. However, the restaurant was half-full at the time of our reservation and it was disappointing to pay quite a bit of money for cold, late food and terrible service.

    Overall the food was pretty tasteless. The clam chowder was horrible and I could only stomach a couple of spoonfuls. They did remove the cost of the chowder which was nice of them. The prime rib was certainly not worth the price nor the 2.5 hour round trip car ride I endured to get there. Only the Salad a dessert was ok although the dessert was described as an ice cream sundae but was only a scoop of ice cream with a small amount of caramel sauce and a few chocolate crisps

    Puritan & Co is one of our go-to restaurants for a celebratory dinner or date night. It's always a pleasure to see what new dishes are on the menu (and to see favorites, as well). The service is friendly and the ambiance is elegant yet relaxed. My husband rarely drinks and enjoys the non-alcoholic offerings (make sure to ask, they're always happy to discuss options). For those who drink, the cocktails and wine are delicious, as well.
