"We attended brunch at Pour. I had a spicey Bloody Mary and we shared a charcuterie plate which was excellent. We had the frittata and the brioche French toast. Both were very good to excellent. We finished brunch with a serving of coffee cake and coffees. Total experience: highly recommended."

"I'd been wanting to visit Sydney for some time, but its location in East Berlin means we have to travel through York to get there (always a disincentive). Nonetheless we went, we saw, we tasted and we enjoyed our Sydney experience. My lunch started with the celeriac soup which was cream based, had a mushroom garnish and just a hint of Tabasco sauce to warm the back of the throat...delicious! I also ordered the pasta special with chicken, more mushrooms and a cream based sauce, also extremely tasty. Mil and I split the carrot cake for dessert. Note: this restaurant has its own pasty chef. The carrot cake was created in layers. The filling was almost like eating a creamy cheesecake. Presentation with a sweet carrot purée...great!"

"Mill and I stopped by after dropping samples at the lab. One thing I'd say at the outset, and this doesn't directly affect the restaurant experience, is that the parking is great nearby with a multi-level municipal parking garage that can shade your vehicle on the warmest and sunniest of days. Enough on parking: the restaurant was quiet as we had a mid afternoon lunch time. My scallops, along with the grilled vegetable medley and apple/cabbage slaw were excellent. Mil liked her broiled haddock with apple cabbage slaw and Parmesan potato wedges as much as I enjoyed my lunch. Service could not have been better."

Once called "the most genteel tavern in America" by John Adams and the first unofficial "White House," Chef Walter Staib's City Tavern has boasted the finest celebrations since 1773. With over 230 years of hospitality, City Tavern has been the centerpiece of affairs now immortalized in history. An evening at City Tavern is certain to be remembered. Just imagine sampling specialties, such as pepperpot soup, colonial turkey pot pie, roast duckling, Thomas Jefferson's sweet potato biscuits paired with ales the ales of the revolution made from George Washington & Benjamin Franklin's recipes -- all served by costumed wait staff. <br><br>Watch an episode of A Taste of History on PBS, our Chef Proprietor Walter Staib will give you glimpse of what we do here at City Tavern.

"We were looking for a taste of history around July fourth this year, so we headed down to old city in Philly for a revolutionary dinner in the historical replica of the tavern inhabited by the likes of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin. The atmosphere was enhanced by servers in colonial costume. Mil started with the corn chowder, I with the romaine and Roquefort salad. Both were good, with the corn chowder being just a wee bit salty for my taste. The mains were tenderloin tips for Mil and the turkey pot pie for myself. I was happy to have a couple of glasses of the William Hill Chardonnay to accompany the lusciousness of the pie. After dinner coffees completed the meal before the Army Band and fireworks at Penn's Landing."

"Stopped in for lunch at this mid town spot. We gave our drink and food order to Casey since we decided on everything before she came to the table for the first time. The first part of my meal and Mil's main course came out before Casey brought our drinks to the table. When we asked about our drinks they were "forgotten," The drinks eventually showed up as did my main course. The food was as expected, however, our server never checked back with us before we had finished our food. Service needs improvement. We almost always tip at 20% or above! but this time service did not merit that level of gratuity."

Gordon and Fiona Hamersley have owned one of Boston's most popular restaurants for 20 years. Hamersley's Bistro serves contemporary, full-flavored French/Mediterranean food in a relaxed environment. Located in the fashionable South End, Hamersley's is adjacent to the Boston Center for the Arts and its' affiliated theaters and galleries. The historic brick building, which originally housed a piano factory, has been transformed into one of Boston's most comfortable dining atmospheres. The dining room has butter yellow walls, exposed beams and a view of the open kitchen so diners can watch the chefs work in their brightly colored baseball caps. There is also a cozy bar, where neighborhood regulars gather for food and drinks, as well as a large patio for casual summer dining.

"Mil and I took Katherine out for dinner in celebration for my 30 years in business. This upscale South Ender has been a Tremont Street staple for decades and has lost nothing in that time frame, from our first visit. Service was both friendly and efficient. We started with the duck confit app. The sherry aigre doux was the perfect foil to the richness of the duck. Mil and Katherine both ordered the classic chicken with garlic, lemon and parsley. Both enjoyed their bistro classic. I ordered the lamb with risotto which was done perfectly. A side of asparagus split three ways and a pecan pie with vanilla ice cream finished our celebratory meal and sent us all home happy."

"For our last evening in Boston, celebrating my 30 year anniversary in business, we chose Mama Maria's. While I generally felt the food was beyond reproach, sadly the same could not be said for the service. Our server was Rich. Several issues related to service were quite unsettling: 1. Bread plates were inexplicably removed while a half full bread basket remained for much of the rest of the meal. 2. A less expensive half bottle of wine was substituted for the one I ordered. 3. Rich, rather clumsily, while delivering my wife's salad, placed his hand all over the rim of her water glass almost knocking it over. The correct response would have been to immediately replace the mishandled glass, but none was offered. Service needs improvement."

The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. Enjoy ocean-side dining just steps from the New England Aquarium. Our restaurant couldn’t be more convenient to the Financial District, Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall and waterfront hotels. We think a visit to Boston must include a meal at Legal Sea Foods. <br /> <br />We’ve received a boatload of accolades including “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” (USA Today, 2013), “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010), “Best Chowder” (Boston Magazine, 2010) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

"On almost all of our 25 visits to Boston over the years, we always try to make it to one of the "Legal" restaurants. With their proliferation in the northeast and beyond, we don't always wait for a trip to Boston to indulge. We enjoyed our dinnerr at the Long Wharf location. I had their notoriously famous chowder, swordfish, with rice and slaw sides. Mil had the fish fry du jour (haddock) with French fries. The food was, as always, very good to excellent, and the service, provided by Rick was excellent."

A modern vegetable restaurant by Chefs Richard Landau & Kate Jacoby, formerly of Horizons: Located in the historic Tiger Building on Locust Street, Vedge offers classical, elegant dining experiences as well as a sophisticated bar. The menu takes a fresh approach to cooking vegetables, presented in a series of mid-size plates. Think: Smoked Eggplant Braciole, Salt-Roasted Golden Beets, Wood-Grilled Maitake Mushrooms.

"Our friends Jean and Greg joined us for dinner at Vedge. We each ordered a different choice from each of the three groupings "The Vedge Bar, Hot Plates and The Dirt List." We also selected three selections from the "For the Table" (appetizers) section, and three different desserts. All in all we each had 15 "tastes" at this meal. Here is what we shared, chronologically: smoked new pickles, curry pickled cauliflower, lupini beans, roasted rutabaga salad, portabella carpaccio, smoked carrots, roasted gold beets. We also shared, peas and cauliflower served in a buckwheat crepe, roasted maitake and trumpet mushrooms, brachiole, grilled seitan and too many other items to mention, but take my word all were vastly different and exceptional!"

"Our friends, Mike and Stephanie joined us for dinner at El Sol. When we arrived for our 5:30 reservation on Monday evening, the place was a little quiet, but soon was filled and quite lively. We started by sharing chips with a goat cheese quac. I like that the chips are heated and the quac had added flavor with the cheese. The freshly made salsa was great, too with just a bit of heat. For dinner we had crab enchiladas, chicken tacos and carnitas, a pork dish cooked in a sauce of spices and served with flour tortillas. Sides included refreid beans and a flavored rice with peas. Everything was great but the rice which seemed a bit bland. For desert, we split the tres leches cake and flan, both were very good."
