Went for lunch with my son on a Saturday at 12:30pm...the one other table of people was just leaving so the entire restaurant was ours. Not usually a good sign but we were glad we stayed. The food was really good all around and we had an excellent time. Sounds like it is much busier at other times.

We liked this so much for dinner, we went back on the same stay. We went to the bar on Saturday afternoon to check out the menu and have a cocktail. The bartenders were excellent and provided some suggestions for the menu. We made reservations while we were there without any problem. We dined about 7pm and the restuarant was packed. Our service was excellent! All of the food was hot and had amazing flavor. We went back the next day for appetizers and had another great experience. Cudos to Hannah and Katrina for their amazing service! If back in Boston, we will definately do back!

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with a wonderful dinner at Rustic Kitchen in Boston. Started with drinks at the bar on the more casual side which was great as we were interested in seeing some of the hockey game. We didn't have reservations but only had to wait about 25 minutes for a nice, romantic booth. Caprese salad was so good, as was the risotto and the stuffed chicken. Found the prices to be quite reasonable for such a great dinner. Would highly recommend this restaurant. Very pretty interior and our waitress was excellent.

I rarely rate a restaurant as being truly excellent but this one deserves such a rating.
There are five primary reason for this are:
1.) The food is well prepared and well presented.
2.) The wait staff is properly trained
3.) The menu selection is broad.
4.) Lighting is ample. I didn't need a flashlight to read the menu.
5.) The diners were appropriately dressed (it was Marathon Monday) and
gave the appearance of being familiar with good food and good service

Had dinner and breakfast here. Dinner was very good and reasonable cost. Breakfast was a bit pricey, and my French toast was overcooked.
