An eclectic twenty seat restaurant featuring seating overlooking the open kitchen and an intimate environment. Chef Carl Dooley utilizes French techniques to showcase both seasonal ingredients and international flavors in his four-course prix fixe menus. In addition, there is a menu of light snacks paired with choice wines and craft beers at the standing wine bar.

Please note, specific tables may be requested but cannot be guaranteed.

Reservations highly recommended. Prompt arrivals requested, as we cannot guarantee seating when diners are delayed by more than 15 minutes. Private parties can also be arranged upon request. We recommend booking these at least three months in advance.

Always wanted to try The Table at Seasons to Taste. Because of its size, reservations need to be made far in advance.
Went on 7/7 and was not dissapointed. Decor was cute and quaint. Only seats about 20 people and space is very small so it was a bistro feel but in a small space. Loved the open kitchen and the views of the food being prepared.
The service was friendly, attentive and superb. All the waitstaff was extremely knowledgeable but friendly and engaging. We also purchased the wine tasting option as well so the wines were very well paired with the food course and our server was very knowledgable about the wines, the regions and the actual producer.
Defininately for foodies and folks who love inventive foods and ingredients. From start to finish, delicious food in a quaint yet casual atmosphere. Highly recommend to all!

Great place if you like a fixed menu and variety of food. I highly recommend splitting the menu with a friend or partner so you both get to try a little of everything. Would definitely go back.

I wish I would have liked this place. The people who work there are young and earnest and I am sure they are intensely involved with what they do. They offer 4 course price fixed menu. I am a child of restauranteurs. In addition and kudos to the earnest staff; however, I found the food over-salted and much too heavy; the environment reminiscent of a Watertown breakfast diner. ....Seasons needs a personality--as is it's way too plastic and chunky monkey on the decor, menu is too random.

I don't even know where to begin. Everything I've eaten since this dinner has felt sad in comparison! The ambiance of the place is fun yet intimate. The whole staff seems excited to work there and are passionate about the food they serve. Every course of the meal was unique and creative. The food was absolutely delicious and I can't wait to go back.

The food and service were great! My only complaint would be the temperature was too hot. It was already very muggy and hot outside, would have been nice if the restaurant was cooler.

They change the menu every 4-6 weeks and provide tons of snacks and free appetizers. Probably the most fresh seafood I've ever tasted on the table. Awesome food quality.

I only hesitated because I want to go back and have no trouble getting a reservation! Went for our anniversary and was blown away. Not only was it a memorable meal, but our server was well aware of preparations, ingredients and we discussed the regions from which he chose the wines he paired with the courses. NOT pretentious. Going back!

Wonderful food! I appreciate savoring a meal but the time between courses was a bit long — the entire meal was 2+ hrs. Small restaurant is casual and cozy, though unfortunately the couple next to us were loud and annoying and there was nothing we could do to avoid hearing it all....

The occasion was a birthday for a vegetarian friend. She loved the choices and felt comfortable while having a great vegetarian dinner. We also had the wine pairings, and she enjoyed the excellent way the wines complemented the delicious and novel food. She also liked the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, as well as the sense that they were enjoying their work.

We love this very special neighborhood jewel. It was fun going on the first night of a new menu and watching all the activity from the chefs counter. All dishes were perfection except the rhubarb dessert - too much or not cooked enough cream pudding . It was soggy but knowing the excellent pastry chef she’ll probably have it right by now.

Delicious! It was the first night of the new spring menu and wine pairings and it was perfect. Standouts were the amuse bouche (raw red snapper with tomatillo and avocado), Hake with morels and gnocchi with bacon and asparagus. Service was top notch yet comfortable vibe. Will definitely be back!

Very imaginative food! Four prix fixe courses plus two complimentary amuse bouches and fresh hot bread with spreads made for a long leisurely evening of eating. All dishes are beautiful as well as innovative and delicious.

The acoustics are really bad; we had to lean close and yell to hear each other even though there were only a dozen people in the place. It's a cramped space. The decor is mismatched and eccentric. Our impression was that this is the starter space for a superb chef and menu that will soon be so popular it will be able to move to a better venue.

If you like great food served by great people (which everyone should like), this is a place to try. If I lived there, I would consider this a once a quarter type place that you keep coming back to just see what different ideas they are putting on a plate.

We had a wonderful meal here. It was great to be able to see them cooking. The lamb was one of the tastiest things I've ever eaten! The pasta was a little bit of a miss for me but I can see why others would like it. I can tell how much care they have put into their menu.

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at Season to Taste. We were promptly seated and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Their wine suggestion to please both my wive’s and my own palate was right on. The food was tremendous! The chef seemed to visit every table and make small talk and talk about his menu. All around great experience!

I wanted to take young foodie friends out for a meal to say thanks for having me stay with them on my first visit to Boston. I researched before leaving Australia and love the concept, the ethos and the menu! I also enjoy having paired wines as this usually ensures the perfect flavour combinations. Really enjoyed the food and the wine and service was just right, attentive without being intrusive.
