We booked for a ten-year wedding anniversary so this was high stakes. On entry we had a somewhat less-than-friendly welcome, but were soon shown to out table. While that happened, our waiter was pulled back and spoken to: this resulted in his throwing "Happy Anniversary"...More

Neat atmosphere in Boston's Old City Hall. Great service, great cocktails and wine list. Steaks perfectly prepared, serving sizzling on your plate

The food is good, we ate steak and shrimp. Staff hurried, the noise is deafening. Very uncomfortable, could hardly understand the people I was with or the waiters. Prices too high for good, but predictable dishes.

The service was great, the food was wonderful and the staff were terrific. My dessert plate had "Happy Birthday" iced around the edge, which was nice. The only downside was that the tables were so incredibly close to each other; I had to ask the...More

A little hard to find, but worth the trip. Housed in the old City Hall, the restaurant sports two levels and several private function rooms. Service is very attentive and refined. The beef tenderloin is sublime. Go with beef here for sure. Skip the blackened...More

Had a business dinner at this location. Food was excellent but quite expensive. Staff was friendly. Good downtown location.

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
