"This tidy restaurant tucked into the lobby level of a condo complex provides relief from the usual seafood focused stuff along the beach. Decorated at least two decades ago, featuring one room with blue lights, the place has a certain chic retro quality. That being said, the pecan crusted snapper is quite tasty, excellent salads and deserts are mostly versions of cheesecake. Oh yes, the ocean is seen in the distance but before you get that far the immediate view of of the condo pool and lounge chairs. Funky, fun and retro."

"As if the views over the seagrass and dunes to the Atlantic weren't enough, your senses will be sated by the fantastic food, wine and beverage offerings here. There is always a line of folks without reservations but, in my history, reservations are honored promptly. We dined on blackened mahi mani, grilled vegetables and key lime pie with a fantastic sauvigon blanc. Terry was our professional waiter and we'll go back time and time again."

"Rialto continues to be a beacon for amazing cooking, quality service and beautiful dining rooms. Over the years, Jody Adams has introduced us to the wonderful variety of Italian flavors and foodstuffs always in the most creative combinations. There are fresh surprises each time we visit plus a few of the standards which we hope will never leave the menu. On Friday, we started with grilled octopus followed by halibut and monkfish. All prepared perfectly with interesting sides. Finish the meal with the out-of-this -world pistachio cake. Dreams are made of this!"

Contemporary Italian-Mediterranean cuisine served in an upbeat and sophisticated environment by a staff intent on providing you with a truly memorable dining experience. Sorellina, the 'kid sister' of acclaimed Chef Jamie Mammano's Mistral provides an intense look at regional Italian food with a modern twist. Sorellina's wine list focuses on some hidden Italian gems paired with an international selection creating an effortless opportunity to explore the unknown. The warm-modern design intertwined with the glow of the back wall mural and the floor to ceiling windows are a visually stunning combination.

"Sorellina is one of my favorite restaurants in Boston. Not only is it one of the most beautiful settings but the level of mastery of the food is always impressive. Saturday night we began with fettuccini with a spicy ragu followed by halibut and sea scallops. The salads are also crisp and perfectly seasoned. The semifredo for after dinner was just the right touch. The wine list is diverse in price with quite good bottles below the three figure mark. Service is prompt, courteous and professional. The front of the house and valet service are both well run."

"Brasserie Jo is always a delight. The airy room has just the right vibe to create a pleasant dining experience. Most of the waiters have been there for a while and provide that friendly personal touch that is important. The food is quite good and focused on traditional bistro fare. Try the chicken paillard, salad Nicoise, muscles and tarte flambé. All excellent. The bar is a great meeting place prior to theatre or symphony and the drinks are generous and expertly prepared. Definitely one of my favorite places in town."

"Our lunch at a window table at Bar Boulud was terrific. From the hearty welcome to prompt service and inventive bistro fare, the place is worth a visit. There is a prix fixe menu for lunch at $28 dollars for two courses. We chose from the a la carte menu and had a terrific salad followed by an amazing dover sole. Wine choices by the glass are from an extensive list of both reds and whites. Table service was attentive and knowledgeable. A good addition to Boylston Street's restaurant scene."

Chef Mike Price and partner, Joey Campanaro, opened Market Table in the fall of 2007. Located at the corner of Carmine and Bedford Streets in the West Village, the restaurant boasts an airy dining room with exposed brick walls and large windows offering a view onto village life. The menu at Market Table is seasonal American, influenced by Mike's childhood on the family farm in Maryland coupled with years working beside great chefs. He offers nightly specials that reflect his love of creating simple dishes with big flavors.

"Market Table is flooded with light from great windows overlooking Carmine Street. The warm and welcoming room under the direction of Matt Howell creates a comfortable atmosphere. Service is spot on and the menu at lunch the Saturday after Thanksgiving was perfect. Pumpkin soup with nice chunks of the veggie along with a terrific mixed salad with hearts of palm was just right. A cheese burger cooked perfectly with amazing fries suited my companion. The room is lively without being overwhelming. This is a spot that you'd return to often."

<br />Our menu comes from New York's farmers markets, Long Island fishing boats, country fields and the wondrous meanderings of spirited travelers with passionate palates. We're crushing seafood, roasted meats, crazy good wine and creamy espresso. We present a wine list broad enough for you to come by and enjoy wine with us every night or you can order something you can't get anywhere else in the world. We're Italian influenced, American executed and entirely New York. <br />

"Although the slow cooked pork shoulder, black bass, brussels sprouts and fries were among the best I've tasted and the service was just right, the ambiance of Charlie Bird needs a lot of work. The designers who thought that wood floors, brick walls, metal window dressings and other hard surfaces in a room approximately 20 by 50 would allow for conversation (polite or not) should rethink their design. With a kitchen working hard, it's sad that your client cannot hear themselves think. There is also the issue of other patrons screaming to be heard while they take incessant selfies of themselves at their tables. Really, what is the purpose of good food if you have a carnival atmosphere - just throw some burgers on the barbecue! Someone in management needs to add some soft surfaces and tone down the noise - visual and aural."

"This is dining that excites. One of New York's largest dining rooms always seems intimate due to the exceptional design and amazing acoustics. It is both sophisticated, casual and accessible. The service is exceptional with captains and servers who always seem to be around when needed but not hovering. We began with pasta and wild boar and a lobster/crab salad. The main course was a perfectly cooked sirloin. Don't miss the donuts for desert. The food is always amazing. My favorite spot. Much of this is due to Chase who manages the dining room with grace and a keen eye for detail. Every patron feels his special touch."

Kin Shop is a contemporary Thai restaurant opened by Chef Harold Dieterle and Alicia Nosenzo. The duo chose the name, Kin Shop, because “kin,” is the Thai word for “to eat” and the restaurant is the “kin” to their acclaimed restaurant Perilla, a mere seven-minute walk away. <br /><br />Kin Shop’s menu features both contemporary reinterpretations of traditional Thai dishes and wholly new items inspired by Thai ingredients. Complementing Kin Shop’s menu (which is meant to be shared), are Thai-influenced specialty cocktails, a 75-label, spice-friendly international wine list with many bottles priced under $50, and a diverse globe-spanning selection of beers, many from small, craft producers. <br /><br />The casual, but polished setting features comfortable banquettes, a long granite bar, and a chef’s counter for walk-in dining with a front-row view.

"Fried bok choi, meatball/bok choi soup, black bass and goat curry make an unbeatable combo in this asian inspired storefront on 6th Avenue. The bar is fully stocked and the open kitchen provides tantalizing realizations of one of the most inventive menus around. Service is friendly and the room is filled with lively, happy folks. Great for a cold rainy night this week."
