for a place with a knock 'em dead reputation, this place was a disappointment. the food was good but not great (sirloin sandwich and lamb burger). the wines were the same but what really aggravated me was that they were out of their best desert. the only saving grace was the atmosphere. the bar was the place to be seated...

The tender chunks of halibut with the shrimp and scallops were enough for me to give a favorable rating, but what sets stews apart from the pack is the broth. The broth is what I am thinking about right now as I write this. And the broth and the Cabernet went very well together. This cab that they picked out... More

The food was not great. The beef tips were tough and the coffee was cold. Ok place to eat but better choices out there

Lovely cosy restaurant in a great location. Fantastic food and attentive friendly service. I think this could possibly have been the best meal I've ever eaten in America.

Enjoyed our pre-theater dining at 75 Chestnut. Our waitress was aware that we had a show to attend and was attentive to our need to move things along but not so fast that we felt rushed. The hostess stopped by the table to make sure we were enjoying our meal, which was a nice touch. We felt that the staff... More

This is a small neighborhood restaurant with a pure Beacon Hill feel. The food is very good. The staff is professional -- not overly friendly -- but efficient and well mannered. The locals eat here. It is located off the main streets and the hostess can spot tourists before you open the door. My daughters and I were given a... More

Made a reservation for four and our table was ready right away, despite how busy it was. Lovely spot located on Beacon Hill with cobblestone streets and gas lit lanterns. Food was incredibly delicious and very creative. Interesting and delicious cocktails. Service was great and staff very friendly, despite how busy they always are. Will visit again!

We were staying at the Liberty Hotel and the concierge recommended this spot. We ended up having a wonderful dinner sitting at the bar which somehow managed to allow for some privacy even at the bar. We ordered steak au poire and duck which were tasty. The cocktails were really unique and delicious! They had complementary cheese and crackers but... More

Brought the family for Saturday lunch and everyone was very pleased. Kids had waffles and an omelet and were both happy. Adults had a burger as well as Steak/Avocado Salad. Both were excellent. This is a great neighborhood restaurant we will definitely visit again.

Thank John C

Staying in Beacon Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander through the hilly neighborhood and check out its exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking path. Make sure to meander down Charles street to poke into boutiques and antique shops, cafes, and restaurants on this quaint shopping street. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse up close of the State House with its beautiful and iconic dome.
