We made a reservation for eight after previewing the Troquet website (and having forgotten that we'd had a less than memorable experience about ten years earlier). Although we anticipated a pricey experience, we were enticed by the menu, wine list and proximity to our entertainment venue. After being greeted enthusiastically on the first floor, with its empty booths and small,... More

We dined at Troquet on our last night in Boston so were looking forward to a special evening. We had booked well in advance and were a little non-plussed when they seemed not to have space, suggesting that we sit close to the stairs and kitchen. We could see available space at the large window which looks out to Boston... More

The food here is on the very good end, but does not knock your socks off. Should it? well, at the price points the answer is yes. Main courses are in the $30 range withe many above. Not a bad number? Add the tax and tip and you have $40+ main courses which in my opinion should offer some memorable... More

A dinner for four at this hip 2nd floor restaurant started out scary because the first floor was completely empty on a Saturday night... it turns out they use that for private functions. Then main room was packed. The menu was an interesting mixture of cuisines and not limited to classic French albeit there are clearly older techniques used. The... More

It's difficult to find a restaurant in Boston that welcomes guests who come on their own, solo guests who would simply like to eat. Troquet is not the one that would welcome you. Tables were empty, but there was no place for me! Escape from this place. It sucks.

The wine here is great BUT the key is that the food is very fine as well. As good as Park No 9 but less expensive. I go back both for business dinners and romantic personal outings. The Peking duck was very good. With large portions.

I was intrigued by the reviews of Troquet Restaurant and was not disappointed. For an appetizer, I ordered braised octopus. It was delicious. My entree was Dover sole. This meal was beautifully presented with a delicious sauce. The dinner menu offered 4 wine recommendations to accompany each dish. Troquet offered a very nice wine selection. It was a wonderful dining... More

Had dinner here with a friend for whom this is a firm favourite and I can see why! Wow!! Great choice of starters and entrees from the menu - somehow I managed to find room for dessert as I didn't want to miss out on more gastronomic delights! There are wines recommended for each dish as well as the option... More

This restaurant probably has the best wine list in Boston, when taking into consideration of the wines on the wine menu and the price they charge. The menu is good but it does need a little more variety and needs to change from time to time. Overall though, a great place to wine anddine

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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 your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
