Mexican | Back Bay, Boston

Honestly, my only real complaint is how loud the restaurant is. I understand it's a bar, but it was 5:45 on a Monday when I went. My party was there for the food as well as the drinks, and it was difficult to have a conversation during our meal. The food and drinks were delicious as usual, though I did feel like the drinks were particularly stingy (mostly ice). For $15 a drink, you should probably give people a standard portion and not skimp by using way too much ice. All that being said, I really enjoy this restaurant, so I would love to see some minor improvements to make it even better! More

Bistro du MidiBistro du Midi

French | Back Bay, Boston

I had reserved well ahead for a pre-theater birthday dinner for my husband at our favorite restaurant, so I was disappointed when Bistro du Midi called me a few days before the date in question to ask if we'd be willing to dine downstairs in the Cafe, rather than in the dining room, which had been bought out for a "special event." Since the restaurant was convenient to the theater, and since I didn't have time to investigate an alternative venue, I agreed, though I was concerned the Cafe might prove a bit noisy for what was intended to be a romantic dinner. We were seated at a table at the Cafe's front window, and greeted with a complimentary glass of Prosecco as a thank you for our flexibility. For dinner we shared a mushroom flatbread and the restaurant's signature bouillabaisse -- both delicious -- along with a glass of red wine. We ended our meal with a complimentary birthday dessert -- the pepita financier -- a sweet coda to what turned out to be a lovely and generally quiet celebration. Service was excellent throughout. The pre-theater discounts on food (15%) and valet parking (50%) helped make our evening out a bit more affordable, and the much-appreciated complimentary Prosecco and dessert made it even more special.

I had been generally disappointed by the service I had gotten from restaurants in the Back Bay on my recent visit to Boston. That all changed when I went to Papa Razzi. I'm a big fan of old school Italian restaurants, but they are quickly disappearing from the landscape. Papa Razzi looks, feels, and tastes relevant, but it has that old Boston charm. I had a delicious Arrabbiata complimented by a tasty house Chianti and excellent attentive, yet unobtrusive service. Bravo, Papa Razzi! I'll be back. More

Italian | Back Bay, Boston

I was so impressed with the food at Il Tartufo, especially given that we ordered off of the $18 Spring menu! I'm so used to places providing extremely small portions when doing these 'restaurant week' offerings, but not the case here. I had the chicken mousse and skatewing, my friend the beef tartar and the agnolotti. We also ordered a formaggio app off the full menu, because we thought we might need something extra. The rice flavors and the full portions left us both satisfied. The delicate sauce served with the skatewing and the creamier sauce of the agnolotti were both incredible. The place was busy and the tables are small so its a bit tight in there. Our server was also handling many tables, so service was very minimal, but functional. The one item that stuck for me was the wine service. They were advertising $25 spring wines, but our server couldn't give us any recommendations as he hadn't tried any of the new wines. He did however recommend a $50 bottle of wine instead. I get that you want the up sale, but I would hope that management would have their servers sample new wines or at least provide basic tasting notes, if your going to offer discounted bottles. We ended up with a nice crisp Bianco off the Spring menu (I googled the tasting notes before we ordered) and were very happy with it. It paired very nicely with the rich flavors of the mousse and delicate fish. I would definitely go back! More
