I have eaten here twice, once on a girls night out and once with my young daughter. I truly don't understand the fuss about this restaurant. Honestly handling raw meat and cooking it myself at the table just makes me uncomfortable. More importantly the food...More

The service was great and the food was delicious! Had an 8:30pm reservation that we were early for and they were able to seat us a little early. We had a great seat with a nice view of the city.

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
