Italian | Somerville, Boston

Service was impeccable from the moment we arrived. When I made the reservation, I requested a table against the wall rather than in between other diners. As soon as we walked in they acknowledged that request without us saying anything and made it happen. We simply had to wait maybe ten minutes for the party to clear out, which we did while grabbing a drink at the connected bar at La Brasa from the super friendly bartender. You can bring your drinks from that side back to the Fat Hen (bonus!). We then embarked on the Chefs Whim tasting menu which was incredibly varied (hamachi, fois gras, pasta, steak, vegetables). The waiter was extremely attentive but never hovering. Dishes were presented beautifully and the staff very knowledgeable. I only docked one point on the food as the steak was tougher than we both expected. The pasta course was by far our favorite. The meal concluded with a bonus dessert round complete with a birthday candle as we were celebrating my bday (again, which I only mentioned in my notes while making the Resi). We look forward to celebrating many more special occasions here in the future. Their attention to detail all around is unsurpassed. The place is also so cozy and intimate. Very romantic. More

Tapas / Small Plates | Somerville, Boston

Great atmosphere Service was a little inconsiderate/unplanned/slow - and restaurant was almost empty Food was good but the menu is heavy, a lot of fried items and cheese. Some brighter/lighter options would have been really nice to balance the heavy dishes. Also sizes are a little large for tapas style, given the heavy/fried nature of many dishes Overall very cute place, fun to go, but I left before I was full because the food was too heavy More

My first time at Five Horses Tavern, very impressed with the beer selection and the food. They have the comfort food side covered, but they also have some nice healthy options. Liked the breadth of the menu on the drinks and the food side. It is noisy and a bit dark. Nice ambiance, but need to know those things. More

Discover Somerville

Somerville isn't just the forgotten sibling of Boston dining; it's now a hot spot for great food in its own right. From traditional diners to innovative Thai restaurants along Union Square, there's something for everyone. You'll find hearty, comforting clam chowder, meaty Boston baked beans, and succulent lobster rolls at diners and restaurants across the squares of the town. Best of all, it's just a Red Line trip away from the center of Boston. Once you're done eating authentic Somerville cuisine, why not top it all off with some Boston cream pie, which was invented in 1856 at what was then known as Boston's Parker House? If you'd rather stick around Somerville, pay a visit to one of the many bakeries that offer it.
