Food and service was everything you should expect given the slightly higher than average prices.

My only gripe - we were there for dinner, and sat outside on the heated balcony. The heaters only have two settings - off and way-too-hot, so you have to continuously keep asking the wait staff to alternate them on and off.

The wait staff were very attentive to my limitations based on allergies, and prepared meals with great flavor and texture. One of the best at attending to my special requirements outside of my wife's kitchen!

Food was well prepared and presented well. Service was a bit slow as we had a multitude of people serving us and it appeared that communication between them was lacking.

I had what can only be described as one of those last wish meals, Oysters, Steak Tartare and Roasted bone marrows all were on the apps section.

This is a very nice restaurant with a great bar, I higly recommend a visit if you are staying in Boston, I really liked the menu because there were some unusal items that you don't see everyday. If you are just drinking hang out at the bar, you will have fun.
