Went hear for Valentines Day and it did not disappoint. All of the food was outstanding, but the butternut squash bisque appetizer really stood out from the rest on how good it was. The place had great hearty portions. None of this small portion dishes that you see at some other "fancy" restaurants. Service could have been better, as our waiter was a little awkward and not very prompt, but it didn't deter too much from the overall experience.

Overall was a great time and a great date night. Would absolutely recommend.

Favorite restaurant still shines in a new(ish) location. Outstanding kitchen and gracious front end, and, as always, an extensive winelist and the best anywhere selection of wines by the glass.

My first time to this restaurant, following up on all its great reviews. Service was excellent -- friendly and prompt throughout. As we only went for a casual workday lunch, I can't comment on happy hour, dinner, etc. Food was excellent and nicely presented. Would definitely go here again and again.

Troquet is my favorite Boston restaurant. Seating is comfortable and spacious, staff attentive and polished. I am an open minded gastronome, and the menu at Troquet covers the food groups very well. The wine list is exceptional in strength and price. A must try for foodies and oenophiles.

My husband has a wonderful experience . We did the 7 course tasting with wine pairings and cheese and everything was exceptional. Portions were perfect and we didn't leave feeling overly stuffed. Timing of each course was well executed. Flawless service as well.

Seems underrated.Quiet and not busy- but with a fresh menu (more exciting than standard lunch fare in the many nearby restaurants), presented beautifully.

Ducked in on a cold snowy Boston night, and it was just the thing. We did the tasting menu, which took us through a real Tour de Force of what the kitchen had to offer. Everything was delicious, and the staff was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. Also, their wine list is insane. It was a little quiet, but I think that was mainly due to the snow and I believe a Pats playoff game being on. Would definitely come again.

Good food. Prompt and attentive service. Really nice to be offered a small taste of the champagnes we were deciding between before finally choosing. Slightly over priced compared to similar Boston restaurants.

Stopped by last Saturday night to celebrate my wife's birthday at Troquet... it was the perfect choice. We thoroughly enjoyed the night... top notch food and wine, excellent attentive service in a relaxing atmosphere.

Being in a celebratory mood we started Dom Perignon 2014 offered by the glass. First time I've tried this vintage... fantastic!

Our menu choices were all excellent...
- Roasted & Confit Beet Salad with pumpkin seeds, guanciale vinaigrette
- Butternut Squash Bisque with chicken confit, creme fraiche
- Ricotta Cavatelli with wild mushrooms, parmesan, and truffle oil
- Pasta Special... w/lobster, egg and black truffle
- Green Circle Chicken w/ speck ham, chestnuts
- Roasted Scallops w/black truffle vinaigrette
- Lemon & Blueberry Cheesecake w/coconut sorbet
- Classic Tarte Tatin w/walnut streusel

We loved everything. The Tarte Tartin was good, however it was more like an apple cake... not a classic tarte tartin. My server, Audrey, did mention that when I asked about it, so just clarifying the menu... perhaps they've updated the menu.

Service (Audrey M) and timing of the kitchen was great. We stayed with wine by the glass but the list has some great choices. Savvy wine lovers know this is the place to be.

With all the snow was nice to be able to utilize the valet parking... $18. They did a nice job.

Next, I think I'll stop by to try their bar menu and try one of the rare craft beers I saw on the menu. They have beers you can't find at many places. No surprise given the way the owner approaches the wine list.

Outstanding appetizers and starters, excellent selection of entrees with appropriate wine selections, but the wine list is awesome. We chose a 1999 Ribeira del Duero, not as good as 1997, 2001, or 2007, but still a wonderful wine. And the sommelier decanted the wine, and served it in Riedel glassware, even the decanter was Riedel. Only recommendations: jazz or classical music instead of pop crap, and it is incomprehensible how a wine bar has no cheese selection. I know this is America, but, please, the absence of a selection of cheeses with this wine list makes absolutely no sense to anyone with a palette or to a European.

Went 12/26 with my husband and 13 year old son (who has a peanut and tree-nut allergy) to celebrate belated bday. Because we were there on the early side and it was just after Xmas, it was very quiet and empty. I thought it might feel awkward but actually was very peaceful and relaxing. Food was amazing- especially my tuna appetizer, roasted scallops entree, warm chocolate cake and drinks. Service was fabulous. And they were very good about my son’s nut allergy. That was the 4th time we have been to Troquet and we will certainly return.

The food is really flavorful, and it’s not something you could cook better at home. The entree portion was generous, while appetizer and dessert portions were small, so there really was room for dessert. The wine pairings are helpful and complementary to the dishes. The result is excellence from beginning to end.

One of our favorite restaurants. Great food in the wine list is outstanding. The service is always terrific and it is a real treat to be able to go there. Highly recommended.

Really like the new location. French bistro with benches allowing corner romantic seating. As always amazing wines that Chris has hand picked and collected over the years. Creative menu and great service

If you live out of town it is not as easy to get to as some Boston restaurants. We found the atmosphere rather sterile, certainly not warm and welcoming. The food was very good but at the prices charged it should have been, and maybe even better. The food quality and ambiance for the same money or less at Mistral or Deuxave, with fabulous serving teams, is far better. The wine list is extensive but we didn't relate to any of the wines by the glass and therefore the creative 2oz and 4 oz pours didn't entice. With a bit of work, a memorable bottle may be found, but you will pay handsomely and some vintages are a crap shoot.

Great food comes with expensive prices. Great service from Olga. Was surprised the restaurant was not full at all. Think the ambiance and the pricy menu doesn’t make it attractive with so many choices in town. Dessert was chocolate flan! Price winner desert but understood the pastry chef is leaving soon. Wine list is super and once again if you would like to go for great food choices this is the place to be.

We were Troquet regulars at the old location just off the common and we worried that the character of the place would not survive the move. The new location, though, is great. A much nicer bar and additional new table formats (new high tops between the bar and the main dining area are completely new, and look nice.) The food remains delicious (the distinctive butter is carried over from the old location unscathed) and the wine list is spectacular, with both top notch selection by the glass (with optional tasting 'flights' of multiple 2 oz pours) and by the bottle. My wife and I were there on a date and had a great meal and a great. We will be back.

This was the 2nd time I dined at Troquet. The 1st time was on a Saturday evening and I left with great memories - the food was terrific, the wait staff was great and the energy in the room was fun. I was was disappointed with this visit. It was a week night so it was quieter. The food was good but not memorable and the wait staff was in a rush to have us leave. The meal was very expensive for a good but not great experience.

We did the 5 course chef's tasting menu for my girlfriend's birthday. My girlfriend has some difficult food allergies and they were very happy to work around them for us. The food was excellent, wine pairings were great, and the service was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this spot for a birthday, anniversary or special occasion - or if you're just in the mood for a high-quality, upscale meal.

The restaurant itself is a surprise inside. The entryway and bar are fun and you'd never know that down the hall is a large sit down restaurant. The meal itself was good but I would dare to say it was overpriced. We each got appetizers (upwards of $20 each), I got the clams & ocotpus appetizer and my husband got the tuna tartare. They were fine. For meals I got the braised halibut and my husband got the roasted suckling pig. For the price, the plates were very small. Again, the food was good but I wouldn't say outstanding. I was glad we went - it was a romantic date-night celebration. But I won't be rushing back.

The restaurant has a very very good wine list and okay pairings, not sure if our allergies affected the food pairings but it only seemed okay. Very good ambiance although sometimes bar music would leak into the dining room. Great value for the wine as well.
