We are staying in the hotel, so thought we would try the restaurant. After being turned away the evening prior, we thought we would give it a second chance this morning. After 10pm the entire dining room is empty, you can only sit at the...More

We are staying at the Ames and tried Cultiver for brunch today. (We actually would have eaten there last night but were told we couldn’t sit at any of the open tables so if we wanted food we had to squeeze into the crowded bar...More

I had lunch with a friend at Cultivar. The good news is that our fish tacos and burger were excellent, and not unreasonably priced. The bad news is that service was very slow, making this a dubious choice for the middle of the business day....More

Very interesting menu. Delicious house special salad, swordfish, grilled octopus and bread/butter (with caraway!) Setting very charming with navy blue velvet banquets, pillows, beautiful table settings and overall decor. Not standard meat and potatoes.

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

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

From the upscale rustic interior design to the similar style table settings and the actual food, a very pleasant first visit. Love the creative menu. When I saw the beet salad with roasted hazelnuts i’m in menu posted on the window, I knew I had...More

Foodies, will love the selection and service. Love the convenience of a great meal after a long challenging day of work travel..

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
