Six of us went there for a nice dinner, we hoped, recently. We were disappointed in some of our entrees, at least. The ribeye steak was too fatty with grissel. The shared chicken was also mediocre. Other people commented on their food being too salty....More

Sometimes, you need to be very careful who you allow to interact with the customer and who you give control to. The Restaurant is in the Hotel we are staying at (The Boston Ames Hotel) and when we decided to make it an early dinner,...More

Four of us ate dinner at Cultivar on a cold January evening. The restaurant is really beautifully decorated. The tables were comfortable, despite a cold draft that blew in every time someone opened the main hotel door. My husband and I ordered the sweet potato...More

We went here for lunch and it was a good meal out if you are in the middle of the city, near Government Center. Pros: excellent, friendly, attentive service. Very good meal overall. One of us had a ‘dried’ beef burger. I was told it...More

So we went to Cultivar last night. Table for 4. It's an eclectic menu. Overall the service was poor to marginal and the food was between just ok and very good. Our server was either having a bad day or just an unhappy person because...More

We had a fantastic meal at Cultivar and really enjoyed our experience here. We were served bread to start which was fantastic. The fried oysters were delicious. The ambience was great, and we noticed a lot of attention to little details, even in the dinnerware...More

I have been to the other restaurant that this Chef worked n - and loved the food there. So I went excited and came back really disappointed. I am a vegetarian and had their entree (quinoa) - which was soggy, tasteless and had only root...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
