I had three-course meal here for dinner. The desert was the best part. I had escargot, steak & fries, and chocolate cake with ice cream. I wish the escargot could be processed with more flavor since it tasted a bit bland to me. Maybe more...More

This was recommended as a classic--harder to find perhaps--but reminded me of a classic European restaurant. Food is presented under a great silver dome, pleasant staff, romantic setting, variety on the menu. We enjoyed oyster specials after 9 pm. Loved the duck pate appetizer and...More

This place was absolutely amazing! It took us a minute to find it because it's kind of tucked away. The atmosphere was great for our anniversary dinner. Service was wonderful, everything was quick but didn't feel rushed. We had the escargot and duck liver ravioli,...More

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
