Centrally located in the Back Bay, Via Matta offers authentic Italian cuisine with attentive quality service in a comfortable setting. Compliment your meal with a selection from a wine list featuring an extensive offering of Italian wines. Via Matta’s Café serves a lighter menu from late morning through late night.

"Five of us went to Via Matta a few days ago. We had a nice dinner, but certainly not a great dinner. The bread and the calamari appetizer were the stars. The parmesan soup was interesting but way too salty. Our server commented that a number of other people said the same thing - apparently the kitchen doesn't care. My cavatelli with rage was also too salty (I like salt). It was pleasant enough but could use an infusion of tlc in the food."

Join us at The Mark Restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Jean-Georges Vongerichten brings his unbridled passion for market-fresh, simple cooking to The Mark Hotel, renovated and reopened in early 2010. The world-class menu features subtly innovative European classics blended with Jean-Georges’ signature global seasonings, and the wine collection,… showcased in a stunning copper and glass wall in the dining room, includes a range of both boutique and familiar food-friendly wines from around the world. The comfortably elegant dining room provides a warm and relaxed setting, fitting for both a neighborhood favorite and a connoisseur’s destination.

"Great atmosphere in a really elegant setting. The tables and chairs are really comfortable and the food is quite good. One of the things I really appreciate is that you can actually have a conversation without shouting."

Bar Boulud is Chef Daniel Boulud’s bistro and wine bar located across from New York City's Lincoln Center. An exquisite array of housemade charcuterie complements sumptuous French cooking for both lunch and dinner. Bar Boulud offers a 3 course price fixe for lunch for $29 and dinner for $45. Outdoor dining is available on the terrace seasonally. Three private wine-themed dining rooms adjacent to the wine cellar are also available for private events. <br /><br />

"I was very disappointed in this restaurant. I had a salad - the dressing was all but nonexistent but given the small amount I could taste, that was a good thing. The steak with bernaise had all the taste and texture of a sneaker. Can't think of a single reason to go unless you are starving, desperate and have theater tickets."

Home of Top Chef Season 12 Contestant Stacy Cogswell !!<br /><br />Though it's named after the much-loved local pub from Three's Company, the Regal Beagle certainly doesn't feel like a throw-back to the 70s or 80s. The dapper little restaurant, housed right on Harvard Street in Coolidge Corner, has a chic décor, a modern menu of seasonal, creative comfort food and a cheeky list of inspired cocktails.

"For any of us that remember "Three's Company," it would be hard not to find the Regal Beagle charming. Its old school decor and convenient Coolidge Corner location make it a great lunch spot. The menu is interesting with a mix of salads, sandwiches and main courses. While the food doesn't blow me away, there are some tasty choices. The specials are usually quite good. On my recent visit the tomato soup special was especially good, probably the best dish of the day. The chicken entree was beautifully cooked and the salmon entree was tasty."

 Hamersley's Bistro
Hamersley's Bistro
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.

"Still one of the consistently best restaurants in Boston. I have been a long time customer and continue to be impressed with the wonderful food. I had the chicken last night. I think it has been on the menu since they opened. It was delicious. As was they steak and the vegetarian offering."

"We visited Parallel 37 without knowing much about it. I didn't even realize it was in the Ritz Carlton. Visually the restaurant was lovely, a mix of flowers, wood and a hint of luxury. The food was really good, not amazing (with the exception of the duck), but really really good. We picked the three course option and enjoyed it very much. The service was a little slow, but the atmosphere was so nice it didn't matter too much. It is expensive, but I will go back."
