    It was my birthday dinner. We had to finally ask for bread after finally noting it to a server who almost seemed to forgot us! I got water but it was not until near end of meal that this same server realized my husband never got water. I am a member of the 75 Club and there was no “special gift” as listed in benefits. The food was excellent! Love this restaurant, but very disappointed with service.

    75 Chestnut is such a cozy and warm environment. It is quintessential Beacon Hill, very quaint and comfortable. Server was great, and drinks were as well. Polenta fries are to die for, and my entree was very good but the lobster was a touch fishy. We were sitting right near the door which was cold when the door opened so if I realized I would’ve asked for a seat further into the restaurant. The vestibule is tiny so when the door opened you really felt it. Otherwise I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely return when I am in Boston again!!

    Went to dinner at this cozy neighborhood restaurant with my friend. Delicious food (polenta fries!), friendly, elegant and yet relaxed bistro feel with excellent service. Not too loud but buzzing as all tables full on a weekday evening, one block off the busier Charles St. drag of Beacon Hill. Just lovely, highly recommend!

    Total experience. Service was excellent - friendly, fast and responsive - from walking in the door until the warm good-bye. Food was beautiful and delicious. We had steak, seafood, ravioli, salads and desserts. All yum! Ambience was formal enough to feel special and allow for pleasant conversation, but also cozy and comfortable. Would definitely go again!

    It has been awhile from the last time we ate here. Expectations do play a bit in this review. The service team was a bit swamped but lacked the level of professionalism I’d come to expect from a beacon hill restaurant. The food was good but not great or memorable. I had the fettuccine, it had good ingredients like squash, sage, spinach but lacked in complexity. It wasn’t balanced or refined. My wife had the seafood risotto. Fresh seafood, cooked well, but not balanced. The dish contained too much chorizo it overpowered the dish and dominated the flavor. This was after having the muscles for an app which contained the same. My daughter had a salad with steak. Good portion, steak was big but awkward cutting up in a bowl—almost too much meat. Again, the food was good, but not great, but the material was there to make it outstanding. This is a small place, so noise can be an issue with one or two groups who do not keep it in check. This was not refined dining with an elegant atmosphere. The decorations were… tacky. Someone had a budget and went to the Christmas Tree shop and dumped it on every open space. The cutting boards hanging on the back wall were a try at honoring the tradition of good food, but they were new, and the ones shaped like guitars was an odd choice. There’s good intentions all around in this space, but it’s the delivery that was off from the food to the decor. Not a place I’d go back for a special dinner. Maybe a drink at the bar. — which lacked in good options for gin.

    It was our progressive dinner tradition we do every year at the holidays. Salad and wine was good. Crab cake delicious. Fish n chips good. Pumpkin ravioli - after they gave me lobster by mistake - was ok. Pork chop was good. Server was nice but seemed a bit rattled. so for the dinner portion it felt middle of the road.

    We had a reservation at 5pm, but the restaurant wasn't ready for us when we showed up. That was OK, but since we were the first people there, I would have hoped for a good table- instead we were seated at a table with a wooden column blocking my right arm, making it hard to actually eat! (I ended up having to sit on the corner of the table- they have clearly crammed a table in where one does not belong). The worst part though was the food- heavy, overly salty, and I had a lobster ravioli which must have been bad, because as soon as I got home, I was violently sick and threw the whole thing up. This was our first time there and I won't be back.
