    Good French onion soup, Wellington was covered in too much gravy and pate. Couldn’t taste the meat much at all.

    Never fails to impress, never disappointed… We’ve been coming here for years and very much the best French restaurant in Boston… Foie Gras is spectacular, the Veal Chop is outstanding and the Duck Magret was amazing! Wonderful Soufflé, homemade macaroons and the Cafe Gourmand is delicious! Highly recommend this place, inside is quite comfortable and the side street outside patio is wonderfully discrete and quiet for a nice ambiance.

    INCROYABLE! This was our fifth time dining at MA MAISON and each time the experience seems to get better and better. There were four of us so we had a fair sampling of what's available. The onion soup well deserves its reputation and the escargots were perfect. The coq of vin with those delicious noodles merits the highest praise. The special of of the day --SAVORY SOUFFLE with beef-- was thoroughly enjoyed. MA MAISON is an exemplar of the finest French cuisine. And the care and concern of the waitstaff is much appreciated. Kudos to our waiter Mr. Smith. ENCORE.

    We had a wonderful evening at Ma Maison with the family. We ate outdoors and all had delicious authentic French meals. It was definitely a special occasion. Scallops, shortribs, duck, mussels - all incredibly delicious. The desserts were excellent too. Also enjoyed the belgian endive salad, escargots and pate.

    Our veggie side was forgotten and ended up not coming out until after we had already finished our entrees. Other than that, the food was incredible and reminded us of a very sentimental trip to a bistro in the heart of Paris.

    Tables are uncomfortably close together. when the hostess motioned to us the table we were to be seated at, I was embarrassed that I didn’t think I could fit squeezing between our table and the one next to us. I barely made it without knocking over anything on the other table. I am not a super large person so I don’t know how someone bigger than me would feel about trying to squeeze through there. Even my daughter, who is much smaller than me, was a little uncomfortable sliding between the tables. They’re so close you can hear the others tables conversation without even trying. So while the food was very good, I won’t be coming back here.

    Excellent dining option & distraction while waiting for loved ones during procedures at MGH. Can't go wrong w/ the mussels, foie gras, or duck breast. Ask for the souffle when placing your entrée orders to make your meal seamless, as it requires ~15-min to prepare.

    Always a great experience. Been a regular for years. Food and service is top shelf. I came earlier this time around and noticed the restaurant was rather quiet. I could hear all the conversations around me. I asked what happened to the lovely French music and was told the stereo was broken. Hopefully it is fixed soon.

    Ma Maison is a delightful bistro Everything was delicious. The escargot arrived steaming hot in garlic butter. Save your bread to dip in the remaining butter. The French Onion Soup was one of the best I've had. And then the scallops . . . Order them and don't share! They were perfectly cooked and the buttery tomatoes and spinach they sat on made for a magical dish. The green beans, asparagus and julienned carrots were all perfectly cooked.

    The food was not up to Chef Roberts usual level. The caché may be French, but the preparation isn't. In general, the dishes are over-priced for what they are: ordinary home cooking with no surprises.
