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.

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.

Outstanding food served in a four course price fixed format with excellent options. Service staff could not be nicer and the small confines allow for you to interact with both the chefs and the wait staff. The wine selections for the pairing were spot on. A wonderful experience.

My husband and I came here to celebrate our one year anniversary. We had used Season to Taste to cater our wedding, so we were looking forward to another delicious meal.

The food and service was both remarkable. Our waiter was so knowledge about the wines that paired well with the food. Every single dish was so fresh and all was very unique. If you go as a group of two, I highly recommend ordering one of everything on the menu!

Very delicious meal, accommodating to vegetarian preferences, warm and friendly service. Service was quite slow with long breaks between courses, and could have progressed a bit more smoothly. Also, it was a little strange after my wife ordered a vegetarian menu due to pregnancy concerns, she was still brought a raw oyster amuse, which is off-limits even if cooked - but the oysters were fantastic and I enjoyed both of them.

We had a counter seating and it was such a fabulous decision. We were able to see the cooking and plating processes, which we were very excited with. It was such a fun. We ordered the whole menu to tried everything, not every dish was a hit for us, but the flavors, cooking to perfection and great taste balance was 100% there. Loved the service, compliments from the chef. Definitely recommend this place to everyone.

I gave my 16 year old son a gift certificate for Christmas to come here. He's in a local culinary program at school and I wanted him to have a "chef's table" kind of experience at a fine restaurant. The Table exceeded my expectations. We sat at the counter inches from the chefs and got to interact with them when they weren't too busy. Chef Carl Dooley talked about his own training with my son and invited him to stop by any time to help out with prep after school. My son was thrilled. The food courses were superb and varied, and the restaurant is perfect for that special meal. The tables are not too close to each other and the noise level just right for private conversation. Lovely booth in the front window for a party of 4.

First and foremost, this is an amazing place. The care and creativity that goes into each individual dish are unmatched anywhere, at any price. With this said, we were (2 couples) very disappointed in a couple of things. Our reservation was scheduled for 8:15 pm. We sat down at around 9:00 pm. It's not supposed to work that way. There should be two seatings - period! At no time did any member of the staff come over to us while we sat in the corner next to the window to offer us water, a beverage of any kind, let alone a kind word. I'm sorry, there is just no excuse to ignore customers waiting in your restaurant to spend $500. This was our 3rd time at the restaurant. The food has always been excellent and this last time was no exception. Given the success and popularity of the restaurant, I think the time has come for the owners to address service and ambiance issues.

The menu of items allowed people to go light or more hearty.Each dish was prepared with great attention to detail and the elements were presented very well; color, texture, flavor, savory all in balance. The ceviche and the lemon agnolotti received the most praise but the curried chicken and lamb were also outstanding. Personally, I liked the price set with tax and gratuity included. While the wines by the glass were good they do not need to be 15-17/gl.

Exceeded our high expectations. Food was phenomenal, and at least on this particular night, had plenty of heat. Truly enjoyed the warm and friendly service, which made us feel right at home on our first visit. Truly our new favorite restaurant in the Boston area. Best advice? Order one of everything and share. My wife doesn’t like lamb at all, but to our surprise, fell completely in love with the lamb carpaccio. You won’t be disappointed.
