Wonderful stay at your beautiful Inn. Thanks
The dining room is very charming - very New England - and inviting. The service was very attentive and friendly, even to the kids. The food was ambitious and really nicely presented. It was a lovely meal.
Thank you for your kind comments about Town Meeting Bistro. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
Sunday brunch was outstanding and service was impeccable. Love the price fixed menu.
Thank you for your five-star review Bob! Delighted you enjoyed brunch. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
The food was fine, but nothing special considering the price. The cocktails were not very flavorful.
Such a lovely venue for a quiet lunch with friends.
Dear RLB1, Thank you for your five-star review! We look forward to the pleasure of serving you again for lunch. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
It has really slipped, a shame... earlier this year they had their best chef yet , I don’t know what happened but we went last week and the food was not well seasoned and the presentation was sloppy. The service was at a snail ‘s pace with the kitchen apparently backed up , perhaps they were inadequately prepared for Restaurant Week. The servers are among the best trained in the area... a delight...the single bright spot of the night. I hate to give this place a poor review but they have to do better... and they have in the past. It is not an inexpensive meal.
Dear PrettyPickyBoston, We’re glad that you find our team among the best trained in the area. We will share your comments with our culinary team in an effort to improve in the future. We hope we have the opportunity to serve you again and regain your trust. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
We had a wonderful evening at Town Meeting. The food was delicious and creative. Our cocktails were unique and strong [just the way we wanted]. The service was outstanding; from the gentleman at the front door of the inn who escorted us to the restaurant, to the hostess who offered to hang our coats, to our waiter who described each of the items we enjoyed in poetic detail, to the gentleman who brought us more homemade rolls. We cannot wait to return!
Dear Ellie, Thank you for your five-star review and recommendation. We're delighted you enjoyed your experience and we look forward to your return. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
A little less good than a year ago but still an attractive option for a quiet well-prepared meal. Prices have significantly increased. Variety in menu ok but less impressive than formerly.
Dear lowkeygourmet, Thank you for your review and your comments. Sincerely, Christine Smith, General Manager
Dear Misha, Thank you for your five-star review! Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
Food is delicious and the service is first rate! Lovely place to have breakfast with near friends in a Saturday morning.
Dear Mary, Thank you for your five-star review! We look forward to serving you again. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
Food A plus ( soups chowder and corn soup highlights)
However Service slow, distracted , setting tables while guest waiting for check, stood long time waiting for table to be sat down, was awkward but everybody was kind and nice just not very experienced servers
We had a very pleasant dinner on quiet summer evening when there was only one other couple present in the dining room. (So, naturally, the noise level was very low.) We very much enjoy small portions and do not like restaurants that serve large portions. On the other hand, Town Meeting goes a little too far the other way, with portions so small that one is still hungry in the end. Would recommend that the portions be increased by around 30%.
Dear Kerry, Thank you for your feedback. We will share it with our team in an effort to improve in the future. Best regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
Love this place! Consistently good food for years!
Dear SomervilleStrong, We love that you love our restaurant. Thank you for your five-star review! Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
The food was exceptionally good with a beautiful presentation. The ingredients used were truly fresh and the combination of flavors made it an unforgettable experience.
Thank you for your five-star review Tibor. We appreciate your comments about the presentation and fresh ingredients. Thank you again. Best regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
I don’t live in MA, but come to the area frequently for work. Artistry on the green has been a favorite of mine for years and i always come for the lobster Cobb. This time, once i realized the name had changed and got the background from the server i got the lobster Cobb. It was not the same. The presentation was different, it seemed like the ingredients were not exactly the same, and the lettuce was brown. Maybe this is just a growing pain with the transition, so i will definitely give it another shot and hope it is the same place i always enjoyed.
Thank you for your loyalty. We look forward to serving you again and exceed your expectations next time. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
If you can afford it then wholly recommended. Not for the feint of wallet.
Thank you for your five-star review Nick. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
I very much enjoy this restaurant. The food is an absolute delight and you should not miss out on dessert. Their Sunday Brunches are also quite good. Services is friendly and knowledgeable. There are two reasons I have given this a four star rating : (i) the wine list is extremely limited; and (ii) there really are not enough appetizer offerings (e.g. cheese plate to be shared). The wine list is a short affair with minimal Wine Spectator rated items. We also had a mistake with the vintage. The menu reflected a 2016 and a 2017 was brought instead. This can make a world of impact on the taste. We were advised that they are working with a new wine consultant who will hopefully expand the list. Appetizers are also limited. They could use a few shareables like a nice cheese and charcuterie platter or a few other "for two" types of offerings. Overall, the experience is excellent, the food thoughtfully and carefully prepared (with beautiful presentation) and there is an excellent atmosphere. I highly recommend.
Thank you Kristen for your positive review and comments. Please know that our director of wine is working to improve the wine list. We also thank you for your loyalty and repeat business. We look forward to serving you again. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
It is a joy and relief to dine in an atmosphere where you can truly enjoy your dinner companions and converse. We had a wonderful time.
The meal was superb. The chef has perfected a French style of simple accompanying sauces/purees, using simple fresh ingredients.
Our waiter, Dipendra, was exemplary. He takes care of you and your dining experience; he is there when you want him to be and not when you don't. Seamless. Wonderful.
The establishment deserves to be praised, but I'm not thrilled telling you all about it … I like it how it is.
Dear Nancy, Thank you for your five-star review. We will share your kind words with Dipendra and our entire team. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
We were there for the Sunday buffet brunch. The buffet items were very good. We took advantage of the all you can eat oysters, jumbo shrimp, charcuterie, and cheeses. For the plated main course, we chose the eggs benedict and the toasted pecan pancakes which were both delicious.
Thank you Michelle. We're glad that you enjoyed your experience.
My boyfriend and I enjoyed a wonderful birthday dinner here. The staff was wonderful, attentive and the ambiance was really beautiful. The food was divine and we enjoyed the evening.
Thank you for your five-star review, and a warm belated happy birthday. We look forward to serving you again. Best regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
The restaurant is in a beautiful classic building with classic decor. Our waiter was attentive and professional. The support staff (water and busing) seemed a bit out of step, but did a good job. The atmosphere was somewhat dull and geriatric with the soft classical music. As is true with many restaurants of this kind, I suspect the regular bartender was not there for the lunch service because our special cocktails were sickly sweet and weak on the alcohol. My husbands steak frite was quite good, but the chimichurri condiment was very strange; basically a lot of minced garlic and very little herb in an orange colored oil. I chose the lobster Cobb salad because of the photo on the web site and was taken aback when it arrived; it looked nothing like it. The photo showed a perfectly presented array of ingredients laying side by side on a bed of lettuce. What I got was a bowl of lettuce with the ingredients hiding underneath and it seemed like everything had been tossed in dressing rather than a drizzle over top. The lobster tasted canned, but hard to tell with all The vinaigrette coating it. Overall it tasted OK, but the presentation was sloppy. Don’t put a beautiful photo on your web site if it’s not going to look like it. Once again, the service was very good if at times a tad awkward, but this place could be top notch with a few tweaks. It’s teetering on not deserving the Relais and Chateaux designation, but since the Inns accommodations easily meet the R & C standard, I hope the restaurant can bring it up just a notch.
Dear Sandi, We’re glad to see that you enjoyed the setting and found the waiter attentive. We’re sorry that the culinary and beverage experience didn’t meet your expectations, and we will share your comments with the team in an effort to improve in the future. Best regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
We always enjoy the bright room and intimate setting. Service is very friendly.

The Inn was fabulous
Dear Jeff, Thank you for your five-star review of Artistry on the Green. We're delighted you enjoyed the service, ambiance and food. We look forward to serving you again. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manage
Artistry on the Green is a lovely addition to the suburban dining scene however there are some minimal tweaks that could be made. We had early reservations on a Wednesday evening so dining room noise was not an issue when we arrived. By the time we left at 7:30 the noise was starting to ramp up considerably. As a rule I do not like to critique food due to the diversity of an individuals preferences but I will call out glaring deficiencies. Our group of four all enjoyed their appetizers. The entrees,I did not think, lived up to the aspirational menu. I ordered medium rare beef and it was well to medium well and the texture of the beef reflected that. In all fairness all plates were empty at the end. The kitchen seems to be heavy handed in the salt department. One of my favorite restaurants puts a trio of finishing salts on every table at start of service. It’s a wonderful way to add the amount of saltiness desired and experience something different at the same time. Portions are very small and if appetizers and desserts are not your thing you will definitely leave hungry. The full number of courses will definitely be more than enough though.
The decor is very calming but the chairs are painful after an hour. The tables without cloths made for a sticky surface due to summer humidity. Service was very good when we arrived but as the restaurant filled it seemed to be understaffed and very hurried. As I mentioned earlier, these are minor tweaks but if a restaurant’s goal is 5 stars everything must be perfect.
This restaurant deserves to succeed, flourish and fulfill its desired niche.
Dear Eileen, Thank you for your kind thoughts about Artistry on the Green. We will share your comments and observations with our team, so that we can improve in the future. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manage
Vastly overpriced. Roasted broccoli was steamed, and cheddar, listed on the menu, was nowhere in evidence. The risotto was mushy. Service was spotty, with extremely late delivery of the salads and desert forgotten altogether. An altogether dispiriting experience.
Dear Chef, We’re sorry that we fell short of your expectations during your recent visit to Artistry on the Green. We’ll share your comments with the team so that we can improve. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
So pleased to be able to dine without blaring noise volume. Ahhh ....
Thank you for your five star review and nice comments, Nancy. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
Great for a business lunch. Have visited three times-twice for a retirement lunch and once to thank a co-worker for her efforts. Perfect ambiance, good food, excellent service with convenient parking.
Thank you Lee. Warm regards, Christine Smith General Manager
The whole experience was excellent. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was nice as was the ambiance. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We WILL be back!
Thank you for your five star review Wendy, and your kind words about the food, and atmosphere. We look forward to the pleasure of serving you again. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
Artistry on the Green is a beautiful space that is tastefully decorated and feels perfect for a special occasion. I can see how it would be the perfect venue to host a shower or small event. We went for dinner and were surprised to see only other two tables dining on a Friday evening. Unfortunately, the food was very hit or miss, with consistently high prices. The broccoli salad sounded amazing from the menu description and was completely disappointing. Our steak entree was excellent, but the halibut entree was flavorless and underwhelming, especially for the $40 price tag. We loved the atmosphere (and complimentary lobster bisque), but the food quality doesn't warrant the high menu prices.
Dear Brooke, We are glad to see that you enjoy the setting and décor at Artistry on the Green. We’ll share your comments with our team. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager

Good!! Nice people!
Thank you for your five star review, and your kind words about our team. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
My recommendation would be a qualified “Yes” because the ambiance and setting is excellent. However the food was good but not noteworthy and the prices high. My party of five made reservations for Sunday brunch which looked interesting. We were hosting visitors from Manhattan and we wanted to impress. On the morning of the brunch, a staff member called to say the only brunch would be a prix fixe buffet at $54/person. As it was too late to cancel, we went and we enjoyed our brunch, but it was decidedly not worth $54 each. I will say the desserts were beautifully presented and indulgent.
Dear Learning2956, Thank you for your recommendation. We appreciate your comments. We now have a two-tier brunch price -- $54 with including champagne or a bloody mary beverage; or $46 without. Thank you, and we hope to have the pleasure of serving you again. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
Thank you for your five-star review, and congratulations on your graduation celebration. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager

Thank you for your five-star review. And, congratulations on your graduation celebration. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
Every aspect of the dining experience is perfect.
The gorgonzola cheesecake was inspired.
In an era where restaurants compete to see who can be the noisiest, Artistry wins by being the quietest.
A special place that was entirely new to us! We would definitely come back for a special occasion. Very pricey but well worth it!
Overpriced breakfast with limited choices. Omelet was too salty. They only offer one side for this pricey breakfast.... very small piece of toast.
Filling in omelet was minimal considering the price!
Service was excellent.

We always have a wonderful time with perfect service!
My husband , daughter and I went to Artistry on the Green for Mother’s Day brunch. I’d heard good things about this restaurant but we were very disappointed in the brunch. The cold buffet had a number of uninspired salads. Considering the $65 pp price of the buffet I think they could have done better. They did have oysters, mussels and charcuterie which were fine. The pecan rolls were stale . The desserts were limited in selection and just mediocre. There was a choice of 5 or 6 got entrees among them bacon and eggs, cheeseburger and prime rib. Rather an unusual assortment of choices. I had the prime rib, I was trying to get my money’s worth. That was a disappointment too. There were 2 rather thin slices of meat, 1 was medium rare as ordered the other piece was well done. I mentioned this to the waitress and she replaced it with the ordered medium rare. Beverages were a la carte. My daughter and I had 1 glass of wine each, my husband had ice tea. We all had coffee. The bill with tax and tip came to $300.it wasn’t worth it !
Dear Branny, Thank you for your feedback about your Mother’s Day experience. We’ll share your comments with the culinary team as we plan for future brunch events. Warm regards, Christine Smith, General Manager
