“Losing ground”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

we have been coming to this restaurant for a couple of years and I find the quality and value is diminishing. The staff are attentive and kind but the quality of food has definitely lowered over time. We will look elsewhere before eating here again although the atmosphere is pleasant.

“Zen dining and vibe with great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013 via mobile

Love this place with the elegant minimalism from breakfast to cocktails to the spa treatments. Good tartare and cocktails in the evening, Delicious merguez sausage with poached eggs for breakfast. Great croissant and dumplings too. Love the spa coffee scrub. Yum.

“Incomparable service and delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

Served by JC and Anthony. Ask for JC when you go, he has a great sense of humor and impeccable service. The food is outstanding and there is a great wine list. Plus you get to people watch on Boyleston.

“Elegant simplicity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013

I have dined here many times, solo, with friends and with family. The service is wonderful, the space is lovely and the food is delicious. While the prices are high and the portions aren't large, I never leave feeling hungry or disappointed. The Seasonal Tasting Dinners are exquisite, try them if you can. The signature artichoke appetizer is amazing. I don't like artichokes but this made me change my tune! The filet mignon can be cut with a fork, it's like butter. The desserts are beautiful to look at and a lovely end to the meal. Definitely go for special occasions!

“Worth it...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2013

Our oldest son with his family invited us to this restaurant. During reservation je secured a table near the chef's working place. The food was magnificent and they took also care of the kids' wishes who wanted something that was not printed on the menu. We had a great time watching the process of cooking and preparing the dishes under constant attention of the entire staff. Thank you, friends at Asana!
