I took a friend her for a special birthday lunch. The restaurant was almost empty, not a good sign. While the service was fairly good, the food was inconsistent. The appetizers were very good (artichokes and the agnolotti) and the oven roasted cod entree was excellent. But the chicken, my friend's choice was dry and tasteless. The dessert was particularly disappointing. No effort was made to acknowledge my friend's birthday. The meal was costly and to top it all, we could not find parking so had to valet park the car for way too much money. I could have made a better choice of venue.

Excellent and unique food options. Service was just okay. The hen egg appetizer was amazing! The dessert was equally unique and tasty. Entrees were prepared well and cooked to order. Ask for a table near the window for some great people watching in the heart of the city. The bar scene at asana seems to be consistently busy and lively.

Decided to try out breakfast at this beautiful property in Boston. From the moment we walked in the service was above and beyond. The breakfast menu has a great selection, quality was excellent and the atmosphere was quiet, relaxed and made us enjoy the meal, each other and the lovely quality service.

Asana was our choice for Valentine's Day evening ... our first visit. The contemporary design of the dining area and the separate bar area was quite impressive ... and unique for Boston. The excellent service was also quite noteworthy and clearly driven by the Mandarin Oriental. The food we enjoyed was very good. We'll be back!

Food was good and service was quick. Unfortuntaly atmosphere is not the best - very close to the bar which is far too loudly ( music and guests ), difficult to relax. Relatively expensive.
