In a word, stellar. My wife and I wanted to go out and have a really fantastic dinner, and that's exactly what we got. The ambiance was perfect, the music low and classey, the wait staff unpretentious and attentive without being invasive, and the food...just great. She had the gnocchi, I had the beef, both of us left full and very pleased with our meals. Compliments to the wait staff, the chef, and the owners.

Good location and good menu. The food was served promptly and was very good. The only problem I had with my entree was that one of the steak pieces was full of gristle. Could not find a person to ask to replace the piece. Waitstaff never asked how was the food??? When the server showed up to clear the entree plates I told her the problem with the meat. I got a snippy remark from the server "Sometimes that happens with that cut of meat" was the answer!!!! My answer was not at these prices. The waitstaff was not very attentive, even though there was adequate staff and the seating is limited. The other problem was that after leaving we commented on how high the bill was. We were a party of 4 and there were 2 glasses of wine and 2 coffees added to the prix-fixe menu. Each of us paid $74.37 before tip.The prix-fixe menu was $55, so it appears that the drinks, coffee and tax was around $80 - our error for not questioning the bill. I advise to check before paying. The food was excellent, barring the meat issue, but due to the service I would not come back, nor tell anyone to go there.

Neighborhood gem in such an unusual location. Great food and wine selection. Check for special prie fix menus they do with wine pairings; price is extremely good.

Excellent food; lovely small-house atmosphere; attentive but not annoying staff. What's not to like?

I had great expectations for this place, yet (and maybe because it was the "restaurant week" in Boston) I did not find the food to be as exceptional as I thought. :( I will surely give it a second chance as I've heard good things of it. Bummer that my first time there I was unimpressed though.

A couple of years ago me and my wife went here for our anniversary. Well I don't remember it a great deal because in my opinion the food was bad other than the first special they gave us and it was basically a piece of bread with a half cherry tomato on top, it was great to be honest so I had high expectations after that. My wife and I each had 3 course meal's, the appetizer's we got were a duck confiet pate' looking type deal and she got some pork, my confiet was awful and a strong flavor that wasn't so great. Her pork looked a little on the burnt side but left a bad after taste for her as well so already to a bad start. For dinner I got a steak dish, the steak was extremely salty and the vegetables were decent. I don't remember what my wife had but she took one bite and didn't finish it so not very memorable. Desert wasn't bad, I had a lemon cake with saffron ice cream which I thought was good and my wife had a chocolate cake I think, not too sure because she's not a desert person. All in all it was just a bad experience and I even went to mcdonalds after. I read all the reviews and they all seemed to be positive but me and my wife must have a different palate, maybe brunch will be better but I just wanted to give my review after all these years.

We made reservations for a Wednesday 7:30p dinner and were warmly welcomed into the quiet dining area of T.W. Food. The music creates a relaxing atmosphere and the interior decor is delicate and rustic. We chose to do the tasting menu for the table with 1 wine tasting to split amongst 3 and made substitutions according to dietary needs without trouble. The sourdough bread starter was an incredibly tasty start to the meal and it was difficult to hold back from eating the whole loaf. Overall, everyone was friendly, smiling relaxed, open to questions and supremely welcoming. The meal: Our meal began with a beet tartar spoonful and a chicken liver mousse cracker to prepare the pallet. The first course was a fresh crudo with melt-in-your-mouth soft scallops atop a delicious hazelnut miso, with crunchy charred corn bread and fried oysters. This was paired with an unoaked chardonnay that complimented the hint of spice from crunchy jalapenos. Next was the peach summer soup with floating flours and a chenin blanc that was an inspirational pairing. Each bite of soup paired with a sip of wine created an impressive floral explosion. For the third course two of us had the hamachi soba noodles paired with a german riesling. The pairing was delightful and highlighted the light sauce used to flavor the soba. Our third ventured in for the foie gras berry dish paired with an austrian red mix of pinots and cabs. The granola/berry/foie gras mix was creative and definitely worth the adventure pairing the dark heavy flavors of the foie gras with the refreshing light fruits. Fourth was Wagyu beef ontop of an onion sauce with roasted veggies for two and the ratatouille for one. The Wagyu beef was cooked rare and crusted with a delicious olive crust that highlighted the red wine (a cabernet sauvignon?) perfectly. The ratatouille was bursting with fresh garlic, zucchini pesto and topped with a lightly spiced yogurt sauce. Following the peak of the heavy savory dishes was a delightful slate plate of fresh goat cheese two ways with red pepper jelly and a biscuit that made for an awesome DIY assembly. I adored this course and thoroughly appreciated the two different textures. For dessert a plate of buttery, crunchy cake with a delicious sorbet and tart cherries finished the meal (placing a cherry on top) of a great gastronomy adventure. Before parting we sang happy birthday and enjoyed our light and airy almond financier parting tastes. Would definitely recommend for a relaxing delicious dinner.

The theme for tonight's Wine Series Dinner is Classic Blends! Several winemaking regions produce wine by blending together two or more grapes. The game of blending is to create a well-balanced wine. Come try some classics tonight! http://ow.ly/rDPAm
