Our server was absolutely out to lunch the entire time. In two hours our water was never refilled, we had to ask for bread that was served to every table and were told "it's in the oven." He had no idea that bread wasn't on the table. Every order had to be repeated three times. And when asking about ingredients for allergies, he never returned with any answers. Hard to recommend or even tip service like that.

The food was very good; some unique flavors and well prepared.

The service was slow; waiter had difficulty with English, also was a very "low talker" - did not engage in conversation. The food was slow coming form the kitchen - both for the appetizer course and the entrée. Our meals were not complex (appetizers, followed by entrée salad and sandwiches).

The restaurant was not busy, so not clear in why the turn time in the kitchen was so long. Plates were not cleared, refills on drinks needed to be requested.

Wellesley location has better food and service. This past Sunday here was just all around unpleasant.

only issue we had was that the appetizer came out at the same time as our meals. We sent back a meal because of this, and i just ate the appetizer as my meal. in the future, it's pretty obvious that appetizer should come out before the meal....

Recently, I dined with my mom at the cottage and once again, we weren't disappointed. Everything from the bread to dessert was amazing and every time she comes into town, we have to eat here. Brunch here is also amazing. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who wants a change of pace and to escape from reality for a little bit.

A disappointing experience due to the lack of attention from our server. The 3 cheese quiche was acceptable, but not very warm when I received it. The donuts bites for dessert were very disappointing because they tasted VERY fried and definitely over-cooked. The coffee was weak and not worth ordering. Overall, our experience at the Chestnut Hill restaurant was very sub par and I would not recommend this particular location.

Nice restaurant for a rare weekday lunch with a friend. Peaceful vibe. Lunch was completely not rushed. Delicious bread to start, filling salads, attentive (and funny) waiter.
