My wife and friends recently had a lunch date at this restaurant where we ran into an issue with fruit flies. We initially made a complaint where the staff moved us into another table but it still didn't not resolve the issue. After several complaints later the management compensated by reducing the amount on the bill. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone especially the way management resolved this issue. This restaurant is highly rated but with fruit flies I would rank this restaurant a 1 star. But I would like to mention the service was excellent.

Horrible service. Our server talked to us as if we were at a diner. The service was incredibly slow. We did the Chef's Tasting Journey and it cost $200 a head when it should have honestly been $20. I'm glad I tried it but I'm never going back. You know the restaurant is going downhill when they leave you with a coupon for lunch. The whole experience was a huge disappointment.

Underwhelming mediocre food at a high price. Meh is the first word that comes to mind. I have no problem with paying high for amazing food, but this was mediocre at best. Tried the Journey Menu... Dishes did not pair well and dessert was bird seed to be kind. Most expensive indigestion ever. Cheese plate was incredible as was the Fromager and Sommelier. Atmosphere was tainted by the group loudly arguing about their Greek Roots the last few courses and the service did nothing to quiet the VERY LOUD give you an idea, I had to lip read to understand my husband sitting across from me! Hop in a cab and head to Bergamot in Somerville for better food and service. Very disappointed all around.

boasts a stellar 9 course tasting menu with every course better than the one before it. for those not feeling up to the wine pairings, they also offer the most exotic yet wonderful juice pairings the world will ever know

This is certainly one of the best restaurants in Boston. Romantic, outstanding presentation of food, at the same time bringing out the essence of authentic french cuisine. Not only are the waiters warm and friendly, they are also extremely knowledgable with food and wine. I visited them 3 times in one month during my short stay in Boston in 2008. That was before they moved to this current location. I miss their fig bread and caviar.
