The food at Troquet was very good, but we found the wine list disappointing, You cannot see a wine list online, so we had to wait until we got to the restaurant. The wine list caters to people who want to spend a lot of money on wine….there wasn’t much for those of us wine lovers who want a moderately priced bottle. Because of the threat of rain showers, we opted to eat indoors. The inside is very dark, and rather noisy with the wood floors, service was very good.

Nice outside setup
Expensive menu other than sandwiches, which is good because the Speed Dog is a standout at $10.50

We also had the foie gras which was delicious but tiny and way overpriced at $26.

My husband and I travel quite a bit to LA, NY, and Chicago. This is by far the best meal I've had in Boston. Usually a restaurant does a few dishes really well, but every dish we tried, from appetizers to entrees was fantastic. And couldn't ask for better service. Before going to the restaurant, we put our name on the waitlist at the speakeasy next door (Offsuit). The host there actually kept tabs with the waitstaff at Troquet as to when we'd be done with our meal and be ready to move next door for cocktails. Overall outstanding experience.

Staff very friendly - food took forever so appetizer was comped - steak tartare was excellent!
Chicken main course was ok - duck was better
Next time I’d have the steak tartare as a main course and ask not to be near door to secret bar!
Would happily return

Stopped in for dinner while I was in town on business. I picked this spot primarily for their reputation for their wine service. I must say I was a little disappointed with the options for by-the-glass. The offerings they had were very good and quite interesting (i.e. not the same crap everyone has on their BTG list) my disappointment was the limited # of wines available. I understand the challenge of having too many bottles open and available at any given time but given their reputation as being wine-geek friendly I would have expected a few more. (Props however to them because I do believe they resealed each bottle after the pour - rather than just at the end of the night)
This place definitely lends itself to 'interesting' fine dining - i.e. Fluke Crudo for a 1st course (which was delightful BTW) ... The selections are somewhat unique and very interesting - but the atmosphere is totally chill and super friendly.

Thank you so much for visiting with us! Yes, as the economy is getting back into gear, we did intentionally reduce our "wines by the glass" selection so that those lovely wine bottles are not open too long. However, our wine bottle selection is currently over 43 pages long, if you are looking for more range! We look forward to your next visit. Cheers! --Jake Tringali, General Manager

The food and service were amazing. My husband has the streak, while I had the pasta. They were delicious. Their wine list was incredible. My husband and I were just recently married and took a trip to Boston for a quick getaway. Our server brought us the most amazing creme brûlée as a celebration dessert. It was so nice to get out of the tourist path and try something more local. We can’t wait to come back on out next trip to Boston. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!

The staff could not have been any nicer. Started with the Grilled Caesar Salad. A simple dish, which this was, elevated to an outstanding salad. The balance of the anchovy pecorino and crispy shallots was sublime. Hudson Valley foie gras with the local pink muscat grape, cashew paste, and zucchini bread was another wonderful layer of flavors with everything perfectly cooked and elegantly presented. The steak tartare was perfectly prepared and not overly fussed with and the hen egg yolk, a delicious first for me! Do not miss the warm rolls and the wonderful butter presentation, so much fun! The veal sirloin was perfectly cooked and an explosion of layered flavors as was the duck breast with the combination of dark meat and wild ramps (now going out of season) was a delight to sample and left me wanting more. I look forward to returning to sample more of their fine offerings. I must also comment on the Barman, Nate. A mixologist of high quality and exceptional talent. Nate's kindness, patience, and professionalism was on high display as he sorted out the flavors and kinds of beverages we wanted but were unable to communicate. His talent enable us to imbibe with new and memorable beverages. I would return just to visit with Nate and sample his amazing creations.
Offsuit was were we had after dinner drinks and dessert. Chocolate chip cookies with warm boozie milk - OMG!!
While the food is perfect, the entire staff was accommodating and so kind. A breath of fresh air and professionalism. I cannot say enough nice things about how wonderfully we were treated. I cannot remember the last time people were so kind and we were treated so wonderfully and valued.

We went to Troquet on South based on the excellent reviews... and we were in complete agreement with them! The food is amazing- everything was portioned just right and had wonderful flavor. I had the bolognese - on the spicier side (which I love). We shared the Caesar salad, my mother had the steak frites and my father had the chicken. Our server let us know the timeframe would be about 25 min for the entrees since all meals are made to order from scratch... this was appreciated so that we knew there would be some time before the meal and enticed us to get the salad. Overall the service, food, and atmosphere was wonderful and we will definitely be back!

This has become our new "go-to" spot in the Leather District! Food is incredible, and the staff is always top notch. It's doesn't have much of a presence from the street - actually kind of hidden - we had heard about it from friends and decided to try. Cocktails are unusual, menu is small but every dish is special.

What makes this place incredible aside from excellent food and phenomenal drinks is genuine, hospitable, professional, kind staff. Guest recognition is on point.
I’d like to highlight Nate who is an excellent bartender and server who will predict your every wish and make you a custom drink based on your preference.
Highly recommend this place!
