Eastern European | Newton, Boston Suburbs

Moldova has a very interesting menu. Everything was very good, and the portions are very large! We especially enjoyed the chicken noodle soup, the mushroom and chicken crepes, and the roast chicken. Our server was efficient and patient with our many questions. Ambiance is that of a friendly neighborhood bistro. Parking is free and immediately behind the restaurant. More

Italian | Newton, Boston Suburbs

Our night started out by very welcoming hostesses. We had an amazing waiter, Andrew I believe his name was. He recommended some terrific food like the fra diavlo pizza, tomato and mozzarella salad, and the eggplant. He brought us complimentary wings that were amazing as well. We met with the manager Keri. Overall a GREAT place with terrific food and employees. More

Ate here during restaurant week. About what you would expect for hotel food with a touch of upscale. Good service with no issues. Food was above par and the view of the river is nice. Plenty of parking too. I imagine it can get busy during the college football season, commencement and when the students come and go. A nice experience overall. More

Thai | Newton, Boston Suburbs

Though we ordered some of the same items we have had before ( mango curry, spicy eggplant) our dinner was uninspired. Not flavorful enough and not as spicy as we would have liked. Wondering if they just had a different chef, but if we have the same experience again, we'll go down the street for Thai. More

While the decor was sub par-minimalist- the food was excellent. However, the noise level was out of bounds--- the background music was blaring (too loud and the tempo not conducive to any kind of conversation) as one could barely hear the person sitting next to, or across from them. More
