Contemporary French / American
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 and à la carte dishes 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.

Everything about this place was great: the food, the service, even the music. Things were a little squished but it didn’t ruin the experience. Definitely worth the price!

Excellent food and reasonably-priced for the quality and amount (and we had the wine pairing too)! The extra special touches, such as the homemade granola bars we took home, ensured we were talking about The Table at Season to Taste the next day and thinking about when we will return!

Outstanding food! Chef Carl has an amazing talent for blending unusual flavors. Incredibly creative menu. Each of the three savory courses was a culinary experience, the first bite makes you want to close your eyes and just savor the blend of flavors. Since there are two choices for each course, my wife and I were able to sample the entire menu. This was our third time and each meal definitely did not disappoint. The attentive service made for a relaxing and satisfying evening. Also fun to sit at the bar and watch the chefs and converse with them. We love the tax and tip included pricing model. We can’t wait to go back!

The food was unbelievable! Everything was delicious and beautifully plated. We had very high expectations going in, yet the restaurant definitely overdelivered. Not only did we have 4 delicious courses, we were also surprised with extras including unbelievable bread, oysters, and a tasty palate cleanser. I can’t wait to go back when the menu changes.

As always, the meal was fantastic. It's difficult to comment on specific dishes, since the menu is always changing, but I'll say that my fish stew last night was phenomenal. The chicken consomme truly changed my understanding of how good chicken broth can be. (Unsurprisingly, it takes DAYS to make it.) In short, you should go eat here.

This was my favorite meal in Boston, and I have been to essentially every top restaurant in the area. It's exactly the right blend of interesting and delicious with great service and ambiance to match. I also love this new trend towards including the gratuity in the prices and letting the restaurant make sure their staff is compensated appropriately and fairly and I'm glad to see The Table at Season to Taste joining this trend. I will be back!

First time at this highly recommended location. It was as good as the reviews suggest. The food was lovingly prepared and beautifully presented. Having sampled all of the choices available in two tasting menus it was uniformly very good. The wine pairings were well chosen with nice variety and each was quite good. A minor complaint is that the paired wine only had a description without displaying the bottle, our bad for not asking to view the bottles. This dinner happened to coincide with the end of a birthday celebration week which we mentioned in passing to the staff and in turn they prepared a birthday greeting on the dessert. Well done! We enjoyed the dinner very much and can't wait to return.

What a wonderful experience. The entire team is extremely friendly and welcoming. The food is creative without being unapproachable and always rooted in tradition. Everything was thoughtfully executed and delicious. Wine pairings were excellent. Dessert program was particularly outstanding (and we aren't dessert people). I highly recommend sitting at the bar/kitchen counter.

We visited The Table on March 22nd. We had an 8:15 reservation and were seated directly on time. The place was much smaller than we expected but it didn't feel cramped, which was nice. The food was all very unique and very good. My boyfriend and I got each option and shared for everything except the main course and desert. They accidentally brought us the wrong desert but were very nice and changed them out for the correct ones, and it was worth it! A bit pricey at $100/person but the fact that tips are included softens the blow. Definitely a special occasion restaurant but would recommend the splurge!
