As always an amazing meal. Each course surpasses the previous and the wine pairings were sublime. The desserts blew us away....they have always been good but this time was by far the best. Already booking our next reservation.

Attention to detail, unique flavors and textures, may be the best food in boston overall. Very knowledgable wait staff. Nice extras for a hospitable touch- like amuse buche, and take home granola bar.

Unfortunately a mixed bag here. The food was very well prepared but the menu is extremely limited -- just two choices. If you didn't like tripe or skate wing (and we didn't), you were out of luck. However, the real problem was the truly horrible music and the volume at which it was played. I like everything from Metallica to Bill Evans. This was just loud noise with a heavy bass. My guess is that it was there primarily for the chefs in the open kitchen, but it was blaring throughout the tiny dining room. It was the kind of loud noise the CIA would use to extract a confession. It ruined the experience completely. The value proposition is poor at best at $150 a person with beer, no wine. The chair are hard, no table cloths, and the decor was essentially nonexistent. A few plastic flowers. Overall, a huge disappointment. Excellent bread and butter though.

Overall excellent although our table was underwhelmed by the marinated mackerel and I thought the skate-sauerkraut combination didn't work particularly well (although each element was very good separately). The wine pairings were tremendous and the service was excellent.

This was a repeat visit and we enjoyed the dinner. The chicken that was served was very tasty but was not elevated to a fine dining experience. Serving chicken as part of a fine dining menu is risky and this time it did not really paid off. My preference is that the restaurant stick to higher quality meats. Also, I love bubbly wine with my meal and the only choice by the glass started at $17/glass. I would like to find also quality sparkling wine choices in the $11-12/glass range too so I can have a couple without breaking the bank. We will keep coming back always hope for a better experience.

Came here for my birthday with my girlfriend. Parking was a little difficult, since we had to find it on the street. The restaurant is a small, and well furnished place. The wall decorations were appropriate and added to the experience. The open kitchen was fun to watch as well. The food was what we expected. It was fantastic, and the reputation of the restaurant is deserved. However, there was an intangible missing from the food that kept the meal from entering the upper echelon of meals I’ve had. That said, I’ll gladly return when there is a special occasion that calls for a meal to match.

Tee Table at Season to Taste offers a 4 course fixed menu with complementary wine pairings for an additional charge. As a couple we like to order one of everything on the menu and as each course arrives each have half of the 2 dishes. This means we get to taste everything - and believe me, you don't want to miss anything. The food is different every time we go and the wines are always interesting. The waitstaff can tell you the details of each one and why it goes with the particular dish. It's not overbearing wine-speak it's genuinely interesting information. It is not inexpensive - but it is worth every cent. You leave with a complimentary, home-made granola bar in your pocket feeling replete and well cared for.

Wonderful evening at Season to Taste. My partner and I ordered everything on the menu so we could try it all and it was fresh, flavorful, complex, but familiar in ways I haven't seen in Boston. We absolutely loved it. We also got the wine pairing and I'm not too sure how well it balanced with the food. It was more like the wine accentuated certain flavors in each dish. It was surely a unique and bold flavored wine pairing, which opened our eyes to all the many types of flavors you can get out of wine.

Delicious array of courses and variety! Spices were perfectly balanced not to overshadow the essence of the produce and meat themselves. A few favorite dishes were the sweet potato agnolotti and mushroom dashi. The orange zest at the bottom of the dashi bowl added surprising freshness! Thank you for a wonderful evening!

Overall comment is “WELL DONE”! It was a wonderful anniversary celebration. We went all out and did the wine pairing menu. It was fantastic! We started with a complimentary celebratory Cava, and ended with a complimentary granola bar to take home for breakfast! This was a tasty surprise as the granola had a hint of chili that was understated and was probably the best granola we’ve ever tasted! Highly recommend!

Our first visit to The Table was in honor of my wife's birthday. From beginning to end it was a special experience. Our waitress, Felicia, was cheerful and friendly and ready to explain everything. We enjoyed her company through the evening. Our courses were served, however, by several other people in addition to her - a flexibility that avoided undue delay. (At one point, however, we might have been impatient had we not been in such a good mood.) The food was exquisite. Since there were two of us, and two choices for each course, we decided to order everything. Felicia suggested this also, though we'd already decided. It is really hard to determine favorites. Especially shared like this, we had a few bites of each choice and then went on to the next. The measure of a wonderful restaurant is those first few bites: after that, even at the best restaurants, additional morsels are just food. At The Table, we were at the highest register all evening long. While The Table is not cheap, it is not that expensive either, and a great value. I'm looking forward to going back.

Absolutely fabulous! I took my entire family during our recent visit to Boston and everything was amazing. The food was outstanding and our server was world class - helpful and attentive without ever being overbearing or pretentious. We dined at 7 of Eater Boston's Top 10 during our visit, and everyone agreed that A Table At Season To Taste was deserving of its No. 1 Ranking.

An incredible dinner experience. Dishes are creative, seasonal, boundary-pushing in the best ways, and always delicious. Preparation is consistently excellent. Service is welcoming, friendly, and knowledgeable. Also recommend the wine pairings -- they never fail to impress. Overall, one of the best dinners Boston has to offer.

Our sons bought us a gift certificate for my wife's birthday to go to Season to Taste. She is a nutritionist and a great cook, so she appreciated the great food. I liked it too. It is very expensive, but we had a great time. One suggestion: Tell people that the meters on Mass Ave stop at 6 pm. It is helpful for planning for people coming from outside the city. Thanks for a great experience! Kevin & Lynn O'Reilly

Our anniversary dinner was outstanding in every respect. Four course prix fixe, for each course two choices. We ordered both and shared, and had the wine pairings. So we each tasted 8 dishes and shared 8 different wines. And, I think it is not an exaggeration to say that every dish was perfect.

The best place for an anniversary dinner. 2nd anniversary there and it lived up and surpassed the original! Delicious eggplant wontons in rabbit broth, short rib rigatoli, zucchini and kale in a red chili salsa - I could go on. Each course had something I was obsessed with - the honey chai ice cream, the fresh hearty bread in my salad with the garlic aioli, the housemade guac and shrimp on some sort of large chip. Service was also fantastic - Michael was informative and patient, and Felicia was an absolute delight to discuss the neighborhood with. Don't let the price scare you - this place is a once in a blue moon favorite.
