  • ChefMozI have been to this restaurants a few times now, and have never been disappointed. The food is phenomenal, bursting with freshness and complemented by creative sauces that enhance the taste. On this latest visit, my wife and I began with a champagne toast to mark our 34th anniversary. I had a wonderfully fresh Wellfleet Clams appetizer, Vermont Organic Lamb done three ways: loin, shoulder confit and belly (a euphemism for delicious lambs tongue), and Sour Milk Panna Cotta paired with a late harvest Gewurztraminer. The meal went very well with an Alsatian Riesling. In a gesture of ultimate faith in the restaurant, in these days of mad cow disease, I also ordered Roasted Beef Marrow with toasted Focaccia. It was delicious. The marvelous food, attentive service, and friendly neighborhood atmosphere made for an unforgettable meal.

  • ChefMozI love this place. The chef is very talented and creative, the setting relaxed and fun, and the food is wonderful. They offer a neighborhood 3 course prix fixe at $30. Wonderful, all-French wine list.

  • Jacqueline M.Get a cocktail and stand by the bar that connects the dining room to the bar. It's awkwardly placed, but it's so much fun to watch the open kitchen. It's like a dance.

  • Gloria C."burger: bone marrow, suet, miso powder, subtly sweet mace ketchup, and nutty, fonduelike cheese, then nestled on a buttery, griddled house-made bun". Only 18 served per night so go before 630

  • Edward K.I like sitting at the bar since I can talk to the bartenders who will make whatever crazy concoction the situation calls for. Bar food favs include seasonal locavore meat items & clam w/ squid ink

  • pappasBeen here too many times b/c now I have complaints. Savory yes but Waaay too salty- oysters were gagable. Out of hamburgers??? Whatever. Rice was butter overload to the point of gagable 2.. C'mon Tony

  • Mose B.A rich reflection of the locally grown goods, in a modern eclectic package. The 3 course offers the best deal of lot (6 course is same size, 2X price, but 2X variety). Food's too salty though...

  • Phillip V.Chef's Whim on Sunday nights after 9pm is the best food deal in Boston.

  • Boston MagazineFew chefs do both upscale and low-key fare as well as Craigie’s Tony Maws. Nor do many offer them side by side, as he does at his Cambridge restaurant.

  • Justin O.Not just breakfast spot, probably best french bistro in Boston
