We tried the kobe beef dumplings as an appetizer and they were absolutely delicious. I had the bone-in filet mignon and it's the best steak I've had so far, you have to order the bone-in kind though, it's so much more flavorful than regular filet mignon. Service was excellent. One of the best restaurants in Boston for sure.

Fine dining with a nearly full house on a Tuesday night. We were pleased to find such a high quality restaurant at our boutique hotel, XV Beacon. My husband ordered a delicious filet mignon with what he described as the best lobster bisque he's ever tasted. I ordered a-la carte vegetables to suit my Vegetarian tastes, but this restaurant is...

Nice restaurant adjoining the XV Hotel. Service excellent. I was somewhat disappointed with my steak. Perhaps it serves me right in my choice. However I did expect it to be better than it was. Drinks and starters, good quality American dining.

I've always wanted to try Mooo; I've heard great reviews about the menu and food. I decided to have brunch at Mooo on a beautiful Sunday in April; and it was fabulous! I loved the decor and the menu-so much to choose from, a great cocktail menu and a real diverse brunch selection. I had the eggwhite and spinach omelet-best... More

We arrived without a reservation, but the hostess found us a table in the lounge, which was perfect for us. I normally do not eat steak at a restaurant, becoaude it is very difficult to live up to my standards. After an appentizer of calimari and peppers, we decided on the 18 oz rib eye for me, and the Beef... More

As the reprise of The Federalist, Mooo does an admirable job of maintaining an expansive wine list (three champagne offerings by the glass! don't see that often) and offering a breadth of beef (including Wagyu - though not quite Kobe Wagyu, I don't think) with creative selections to compliment these mainstays. We enjoyed a splendid meal following a cold, rainy... More

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.
