Restrauant lighting so low you could barely read the menu. It took a very long time for the food to come which is challenging for a business lunch. Lastly, one of the partons from an adjoining table stood up to take a call and was speaking very loudly in the middle of the restrauant while the servers passed by. Someone working there should have asked her to be seated at her table or take the 10 minute call outside. Troque next door is far better for lunch especially a business lunch

‘‘This is a place for wine and if you want a good meal and glasses of wine, they’re not interested in you and service shows. I had to ask for different appropriate glasses for our great Cabernet and Chardonnay .

Responded on July 11, 2019

Thank you very much for your feedback, and I apologize for your inconvenience. When guests order wines by the glass, we automatically use our smaller glassware, as most guests prefer enjoying their 2 oz or 4 oz in a smaller glass. Of course, we bring larger glassware upon any guest request, which is what we did for your visit. If there was any other issues, I would be glad to know them, so we can continue to improve in our hospitality. Thank you again.

World class food in a great location. The wine list is the best in Boston, both in fairness of pricing and having an extensive selection. This is a must visit for food and wine aficionados. Troquest is old school in the best way. At Troquet, dinner is the evening event.

Pretty mediocre experience that did not meet my expectations. Wait service didn't have a good handle on the meals or the wine. When we asked about that night's chef tasting menu, we got nothing. "Whatever the chef wants" - I get that is what is a chef's tasting means...but I expected some guidance on what that might entail that specific night. When asked about wine pairing with the chef tasting we got the same limited info. When we decided to order from the menu we looked for assistance picking a good bottle to pair with our choices. The waiter's only guidance was "this one is nice" which was a very young Bordeaux. I would be hard pressed to return.

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.
