"I have been to Fairsted Kitchen six or seven times, so I obviously like it. I like that you can talk without screaming, the service is always friendly and the food is interesting. Generally I am there with a group of four or five and we usually order the small plates and appetizers. The good thing is some of them are always really good. The bad thing is there are always a few clunkers. This week I would say order the smoked mackeral, pei mussels, wilted kale and the asparagus with the soft egg. The gnocchi was quite good too.
Be sure and ask for bread, the spread they bring with it is good enough to eat with a spoon!"

"Four of us visited Waban Kitchen Thursday night. It was quite busy but we were lucky enough to be seated at the communal table in the back by the kitchen. It was quieter and warmer in the back so it made the meal that much more enjoyable. We could see the chefs in the kitchen turning out plate after plate of pretty delicious food. We had the duck breast, salmon and the risotto special, they were all good. The shrimp appetizer was a huge hit and the seasonal salad was good. We were not big fans of the desserts and it would be nice if they were able to serve espresso and cappuccino. All in all a very pleasant place."

Liquid Art House (“L.A.H.”) is Boston's first gallery-restaurant hybrid coming to the landmark building The Arlington, in the Back Bay. An innovative concept of art, space and design through the prism of social dining, L.A.H. is trailblazing an “art hospitality” experience to cater to Boston’s culinary, culture and social scene.

"Liquid Art House was a great disappointment from a fine dining point of view. The space is gorgeous, the food is plated beautifully, it just didn't taste very good. The $25 a la carte chicken was dry and under seasoned, the wagu beef was oddly slimy and the sea bass had no taste. The much touted dumplings, at least the mushroom variety, were tasteless. Even the members of our party who will pretty much eat anything, didn't like them. The desserts were gorgeous - ours remained uneaten. The LAH is incredibly expensive and I would have expected a great food experience. This was not the case
However, the cocktails were great, so this is a place I would go for a cocktail and perhaps a nibble at the bar and leave with money in my pocket and a smile on my face."

Besito, translated as little kiss, strives to delight guests with the warmth of a private hacienda offering thoughtful details and cuisine. Besito was rated “excellent” by the New York Times with its dramatic eucalyptus-beamed ceiling that embraces all the flavors and festivity of Mexican cuisine. Enjoy fresh, table-side guacamole and over 75 tequilas all straight from Mexico. Visit us on Facebook and Twitter.

"In the land of chains and steakhouses, Besito is a welcome addition to Chestnut Hill. The ambiance is great and the food is good. Most everything needs a little acid or salt added to it, but with a dash of salt and a few squeezes of lime most everything I have tried is pretty tasty. The quality of the ingredients is good and while it isn't really true Mexican food, it is a fund and different place to eat."

"The food at Del Frisco's isn't great when it is at it's best. Yesterday, they were out of the artichoke dish (the only dish that is consistently good) and the corn chowder - their only soup. When you are located next door to a large supermarket I don't know how you can be "out" of something like artichokes, but they were. Those two dishes were the reason we were there so things went downhill from there. Service was so slow it took us over an hour and a half to have a mediocre lunch."
