We went before a play to grab a filling dinner and were pleasantly surprised. Service was excellent, our waitress anticipated our needs and fulfilled our requests, and the food was amazing. We had a cheese plate that was amazing. The cheese is served in a cart! We had duck, steak and Bologna’s was well for a dinner of three, and it was delicious. We HIGHLY recommend this restaurant, although it is a better restaurant for a fancier dinner.

We had been to troquet many times in its old location..first time here. Very different feel. Does not have the same “special night” kind of atmosphere. Bar was fun and packed while the restaurant was pretty slow. I remember the food being outstanding but this was just ok. Had the beef borgonione and it was super rich. I could only eat half and would not order it again. My wife had the bass and enjoyed it. I do have to say that The scallop appetizer was perfect.

Simply the best restaurant in Boston. Excellent staff, friendly service. One of my guests caught a little fly in her glass (mind you, a $180 bottle), and without hesitation the sommelier opened another bottle for her! Talking about customer service... Food is exquisite, fine French kitchen, hard to come by this quality of cooking ANYWHERE in the US

Everything was wonderful for our anniversary dinner. My wife had the Boulliabase and I had bolognese (enough for take home lunch the next day). Nicely presented and delicious. Oysters for appetizers. two kinds, very fresh, 3 sauces. Wait person was great. Attentive, chummy. tables spread out enough for privacy and even though there don't seem to be sound absorbing materials, we could have a normal conversation without straining our voices. Can't think of anything to fault.

The price of the dishes was not justified. The wine was served I chilled enough and the service was very impersonal. Overall not a great experience. We can do better at that price range. We will not return.

We had an awesome dining experience at Troquet. Our food was amazing- it was great quality and each element of the dishes were paired perfectly with what the main dish cans accompanied with. The service was also impeccable. Our waiter was on it - he was nice, socialable with us, and gave great recommendations. I will definitely go back and recommend Troquet to my family and friends!!

We wanted to eat small plates and I ordered 3 (I was told it was very small) caviar appetizers. They arrived to me in three different plates. They were good, as well as the tiny portion of fois gras. But we were charged 148 dollars for 4 glasses of champagne (2 each), more then a whole bottle.

We celebrated our son's birthday. It was the most memorable experience for all of us! Duck breast phenomenal; tagliatelle outstanding; Beef Bourguion superb! These were only exceeded by the most luscious desserts. We tried three; all made by the same chef. Worth every penny. We will definatly go back for another special celebration. Valet parking helped quite a bit. But stick to the back roads as GPS struggles with the directions.

Another excellent dinner as always. Service is so attentive and accommodating. The NY strip was tasty and tender. I had extra to take home.

The new chef has transformed the menu and there are so many options, so hard to choose.
Will go back for special occasions or to sit at the bar and have a light bite.

Matt, the bartender is a magician with drinks.

We had an amazing dinner! The French food was delicious! We had a variety of appetizers and mains and split them among the 4 of us so we could have a taste of all! The sauces were outstanding as well as the wait staff. It was upscale French food without the stuffy service - just our style! If you’re a foodie you need to go here. They are right in the heart of the leather district. A short walk from the theater district, if you, like us, caught a show after dinner. We were so comfortable, we came back to a Troquet after the show for some great bourbon & whiskey drinks!

My husband and I eat out a lot and find many of the meals we eat unmemorable. The food and wine at Troquet are the exception to the rule. We had a stellar dinner there last Saturday night. The food was terrific -- we had the crudo and oysters to start, then the black bass and cod, and finished with the chocolate soufflé. Each course was flavorful, interesting and beautifully plated, not at all heavy or over the top. The restaurant is known for its wines, and we paired each course with a 2 oz glass of wine -- really appreciated the small size option, as well as the quality of the wines. The service was impeccable. This restaurant is a true gem.

Our meal was outstanding along with the service and setting. Chris, the owner, was gracious enough to spend some time at our table and go over the excellent wine list. He perfectly paired a couple of bottles with our meals. I would highly recommend the scallops and the black sea bass. One of the best meals that I have had in a long time. We will certainly be back again soon.

I made reservations for my wife's birthday this Saturday, and let them know. Despite a modest crowd at 7.30, we were seated at a table set for 4. Not having the table set specifically for us is one of the small details that separates good restaurants from great ones, and they missed the mark. This sort of explains the entire evening. All the motions were correct, but without any of the special touches that propels a place beyond average. Our server did not even seem aware that we were celebrating a birthday. The owner walked by our table many times (even replacing a wine at one point), but never engaged on a personal level despite the fact that we told our server that this was our first visit to their new location after many visits to the old one, and that eventually we were one of only two tables left. There was a brand new chef that night and the server couldn't even tell us how the steak was prepared, nor did she offer to find out.

All in all a pretty delicious meal but an underwhelming experience, if that makes sense.

Excellent appetizers and mains. Dessert doesn’t quite match up the fabulous wine and main course.

Soufflés should be fluffier. I have had better Apple Tartines at Tatte and a few other bakeries and restaurants.

They over-promissed and under-deliveref. It was our 30th anniversary, and I asked to have a dozen white roses delivered to the restaurant for presentation to my wife, but what they got was not worthwhile. Midnight came and passed, but we got no champagne as promised.

After 6 years, I've decided to celebrate the NY Eve in Troquet again. So, first of all, it moved since, and many other changes had happened as well. Frankly, I liked the old location a lot, it was cozy and intimate and close to heart because of the good old memories, but I hope to get used to the new location also. Even though, the place is much more spacious now, it doesn't have the old charm and warm feel to it, but this is my very biased opinion. So, we had a reservations on Dec 31 at 9.30 pm and here goes our experience - the valley services are barely there: 2 stooges went to open the door for my BF, none came over to let me out. None of them had an umbrella either and it was raining outside. Inside the restaurant everything was quiet and decent, but a bit sad, due to the bar area being almost empty and the dining area so quiet with just a few guests that it felt like everybody, but us, went to bed early. We felt a bit awkward at first, but our waitress showed up right away and advised us about the drinks and the menu. There was a tasting menu that night and we had hiramasa (yellow tail) to start, which was delicious, in a citrusy sauce, with a little kick to it. Then I've got duck 3 way for an appetizer - foie gras was, simply put, outstanding and the rest was quiet delicious also. My BF got a rib eye for an appetizer and I stole about a third of it from his plate! For a main course he got lamb, which was awesome - tender and flavorful and I've got scallops with a vegetable mix on top of them and the dish was one of the tastiest I've ever had. The warm chocolate cake was crispy on the outside and warm and soft on the inside, just the way it should be. We've also got a cheesecake to go and it was extraordinary - tender, not overly sweet and with blueberries baked into it. The entire meal was phenomenal! Many thanks to the chef! We'll be back, despite the stooges in the front.

We went for New Years and the appetizers were fine but my main meal was pasta with lobster. I probably found two morsels of lobster. The dessert which was creme Brulet was watery. The price for two was over 300 and not good. The restaurant is an old Italian restaurant that was taken over by Troquest AND NOT MUCH DONE TO THE INTERIOR. VERY DISSAPPOINTED.

We’ve been coming to Troquet, probably since it’s brief stint in Allston. The go to dish is this mushroom cavetelli, accompanied by great bread and churned butter. For New Years we went with the 7 course tasting which I was great. Seared tuna in cistrusy, garlicky broth with tomato confit laced with toasted cumin was a great start. After a nice scallop, the honey smoked trout with a surprise foie gras top was maybe better. The mushroom cavetelli did make an an appearance,
before duck and steak, Cheese and then chocolate desserts. Great selections and pairings of wines, or just follow my wife’s’ lead and sample the champagnes. Over on south street it takes some focus to go there, but it’s always worth the trip

Somehow the place has lost some of its magic. The wine list is still spectacular, and the ambiance is better than the old location, but the food has come down a few notches. Wish they could recapture the quality of the menu of years past.
