The Table at Season To Taste Ratings and Reviews
Book in advance--it's hard to get reservations at "normal" dinner hours so be sure to book in advance. They are a small neighborhood restaurant with a prix-fixe menu. I recommend getting the wine pairing to really enhance the experience. The food is fantastic and the wine pairings are a lot of fun. The service is great--they are very knowledgeable about both the food and wine so be sure to ask lots of questions. :) This is a great spot for a date night or other romantic occasion (or just a night out on the town). Come prepared to try some fun new food and flavor combinations.
The Table is small - 20 tables and their dining format is a 4 course tasting menu with a choice of 2 dishes for each course, with an optional wine pairing. We did the wine pairing and I heartily recommend it (though not if you are driving) - we learned about some very interesting new-to-us wines from our well informed waiter and it was obvious that they had been chosen with care to enhance the wonderful food.
There were 2 of us so we ordered one of each dish and shared so we could taste everything on the menu - there were no disappointments, everything was delicious and the presentation was impeccable. I particularly liked the portion sizes which allowed us to taste everything without feeling like we had overeaten - we left feeling satisfied rather than overly full.
This was an expensive meal, so definitely a location for special occasions - but worth every penny. We will definitely be back.
This place couldn't have been better. Small place on an area of Mass Ave that's down the road from a lot of places in the area.
It's a pretty focused prixe menu, but the food is outstanding and their recommended wine pairings have you trying new things that complement the food as well. Friendly and knowledgeable wait staff gives an overview on everything they bring, but not in a way that interrupts the meal or conversation. On the night we went dishes included a tuna sashimi and veal loin and tongue to start followed by smoked trout/ramen noodles and entrees of venison mole and shrimp boulebaisse. My wife and I split everything which worked out great.
You're definitely paying for how great this place is, but you'll get a really special night out of it.
The Table continues to hit it out of the park. Everytime we come the food is simply amazing, the staff is great, the wine pairings are on point. For modern high quality dining, its well priced with an every changing and diverse menu. It has become our go to place for amazing food experience in and around Boston.
My guest and I had a marvelous meal and a wonderful time. I had the wine pairing, and the server did an amazing job of describing each wine with enthusiasm and great detail. Her descriptions were almost a good enough reason to dine here. I asked her if she had trained as an actress, and she said "no." But I wonder.... The food was awesome. The wines were spectacular. The staff made us welcome and gave us a delightful evening experience.
One of the best meals I've had in a very long time, both for the delicious food and the dining experience. It's clear that they put a great deal of thought into all aspects of the meal. The little touches and relaxed but professional atmosphere made my family feel valued as customers. The staff were extremely knowledgable and welcoming. The food was incredible. I would elaborate more on the food but I don't think I could do it justice. Highly recommend.
Took my mother for her birthday. This may have been one of my all time favorite meals. The tasting menu included multiple "snacks" and amuse bouche that really filled out the main courses of the menu. There was not a single dud to be found across the of the breadth menu. Additionally they have moved to a gratuity included model which provides living wages to their servers which is something to be applauded. Finally I definitely heard J5 - What's Golden and I am 90% sure I heard Pidgeon John and Abstract Rude as well (the music wasn't so loud as to be intrusive but there is no way you can miss Chali 2na's flow) so their music is on point.
We arrived there earlier than our reservation. A few parties after our arrival got the tables or seats before us. After our reservation, we were still waiting for our table. We expected good management, tasty and creative foods, and good service. They failed the first one. The foods were bold and tasty. But we wanted more memorable foods. They also served extra sweets after the dessert. For us, they were not necessary (indeed, we did not finish all of them). The service was very good. Compared to other good and memorable restaurants, overall experience with this restaurant was 4.2 stars.
Hesitant to write this because the secret's already out of the bag and now I have to wait three months to eat here but....
This place is a total gift to Cambridge and the city as a whole. Chef Dooly is the Picasso of comfort cuisine - rearanging ingredients, adding just a bit of color and abstraction, but never so much that when you step back you don't know what you're eating/looking at. The familiar becomes the subllime. Shhhh... dont' tell anyone.
Very cozy, small space with set menu, but choice from two in each category. We tried both in each and all excellent. Service excellent and knowledgeable with good wine list of little known choices well curated and well described by staff. Fine choice but a fair ride from town, about $19 with Uber.
We went to The Table for my birthday after getting recommendations for a good special occasion dining experience. The prix fixe menu is incredible, very filling, and extremely fun! We learned that they re-do the menu and the wine pairings every month, which is incredible! All of the dishes are very unique and delicious and the wine pairing is a must. Already thinking about coming back for my boyfriend's birthday!
The Table at Season to Taste was awesome! What a pleasant surprise. We were travelling to Boston on a family vacation over the holiday and found the wonderful reviews on Yelp. We were fortunate enough to get a reservation. On our 10 day foody vacation, my personal favorite! Everything was unique. Nothing was oversauced, overdone, simply perfect. Very unique ingredients, and incredible taste. The chefs, the owner, everyone was wonderful. Very quaint and personalized. We tried their "Brush" beverage, it was great! The Boar's head pasta was delicious as well as the Coq au vin and the scallops. Every course was so unique and every item was perfect! Would most definitely recommend. Only wish we had a restaurant this amazing close to home.
Arguably the best meal we have ever had. Everything was executed perfectly, and the depth of the sauces was amazing! This has become our go to restaurant for date nights. I always turn around and make another reservation right away once it gets booked so quickly.
