Good food, service, location after a visit to the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain. Only improvement would be better lighting on the restroom.

There's a separate section for dining and the waitstaff is great...knowledgeable, friendly, there when you need them, but not hovering all the time. The food's fabulous and the portions are huge. It's a large...More

Immediately seated 7 of us @ 9pm. Attentive service. Fine selection of beers and other drinks at usual expense. All meals arrived at the same time, properly heated. Ready to eat. My chicken pot pie was hot, crisp crust, savory filling, topped with mashed potatoes....More

This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other
areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an
emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to
