Was able to get a reservation even it's last minute. The place is old but we'll maintained looks like a residence prior to being a resto.. Order the rabbit, first time to eat rabbit so I don't have a benchmark to what rabbit should taste like. The ambiance is dark maybe that's the feel of the resto on the romantic... More

This was my second time coming here for dinner. This has become my mother and I's favorite spot after the ballet. First off the drink The Dove, is the absolute best, it's a salty grapefruit drink that borders being a margarita. I got the Mrs. Marliave, ham and cheese with more cheese in top and a fried egg, this sandwich... More

After the 4th visit, we're becoming fans of this place. This time, the young service was knowledgeable, very friendly and humble; the perfect combination. The food was perfect as were the drinks. Great selection of wines and the glasses were better filled compared to other places we've been. Upstairs, there are great seats right at the large windows with nice... More

We had never been here despite living in Boston for nearly 25 years. What a gem! Dinner before a concert at the Orpheum and everything was fantastic! The meatball sliders and oysters were great appetizers. The cocktail list is extensive, with something for everyone. We both had pasta dishes and they were delicious. Just a nice setting and ambiance. The... More

So what is this place, a French or is it a Italian restaurant. Lucky us, it is both. I found the menu a bit lacking, the decor OK, not spectacular, but the location to Washington Street excellent. My Salmon was very, very good, although the accompaniments seriously lacking. Our friends were very happy, my wife not all that hungry so... More

Excellent Italian cuisine. If you want have a nice dinner or a cocktail that's the place. The rabbit is awesome with polenta covers with gorgonzola cheese. Ravioli, risotto excellent.

We came here for dinner during a long weekend in Boston. It was within easy walking distance to our hotel and got good reviews on TripAdvisor. The building is really cool - we were seated on the second floor, looking out a window over the street, and this, along with the dim lighting and the smaller room size, made our... More

It is described as the first French Reataurant in Boston, but the current menu is quite "Americanized" with main choices of steaks or fish and chips, but there is escargot and French Onion Soup on the menu too. I enjoyed my medium rare steak here.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
