The service at the bar was very good, and the bartender was friendly, polite, but not overly invasive seeing my desire for some alone time. Wine was excellent, can't say too much about food as I only had a salad and it was fine. With tip, paid $38 for one glass of wine and a simple salad. Seemed excessive to me and that most other patrons were there on expense account or hotel guests. Probably the prices I'll keep me from ever returning to tell the truth.

The staff is very professional and helpful. My hamburger was delicious and very well presented.

This place was nice. Atmosphere was hip yet not haughty. The menu - while limited - was very interestingly arranged with an option for "tasting menu" as well as "small plates" and entrees. We got a free glass of wine with an order of an entree since we were staying at the Boston Park Plaza hotel, so that was nice. The seared tuna nicoise salad was fantastic - completely big enough to order as an entree. The wait staff were highly attentive.

Went here for breakfast on a Sunday morning with quite an appetite. Got the hot buffet and all I can say is the options are limited. The spread is the length of one banquet table and includes muffins, eggs, bacon, sausage, bagels, fruit, yogurt and a make your own waffle "station." The spread was not quite what I had expected for $25 per person. I would recommend going elsewhere.

Pairings provided me with a restaurant first - I actually got up from my table and left before having eaten a single thing. Although this was a mid-week appointment and the restaurant was only half full, the service was SLOW. When our main course finally arrived, my order was wrong. I ordered the steak, and they brought lamb. After apologising and taking away the erroneous dish, the waiter disappeared and I was left drink-less and food-less for another half an hour. After the three tables around us got served and my colleague had finished his dish, still no sign of the main. I finally lost patience and left the restaurant hungry, thirsty, and with a bitter taste in my mouth. Well over an hour had passed since I placed my order.
