    We were the only two people in the restaurant, so we had a private dining experience. The food was excellent, as was the service. A little pricey, but worth it.

    I used to like the food and ambiance here but somehow this time the food was not impressive at all. The Tuna I ordered was dry and there are too much olives in the salad that came with it. Made is awfully salty. Heirloom tomato salad with corn has a couple wedges do heirloom in there and other tomatoes are not. The corn is obviously frozen and it is dry… evaluating whether I should give it another chance.

    Service was very friendly and wine was good. Better than the food, I’m afraid. The steak tartare was advertised as “hand cut,” but was actually ground, and finely so, to boot. (Also sprinkled liberally with grated Parmesan, for some unknown reason). It was meh in taste, and unpleasant in texture…a waste of a nice piece of meat, if it was actually filet to begin with. I adore steak tartare, and this was not good. But, nice server, nice wine, pretty room. I’d go back and get something else.

    This was my second time there in a week. The menu is particularly great right now. The hamachi is the best! The lamb entree is really substantial. You don’t see a lot of slow cooked meats during the summer, but this one is paired with a great, crunchy salad so it’s perfect for warmer days. Love it! The people who work there are wonderful, too.

    Fantastic as always! Evan took great care of us, and the food was excellent. The hamachi crudo was probably the freshest I’ve ever had (I’m not always a big hamachi fan). The surf and turf special was light and delicious.

    Outdoor dining area was elegantly appointed including fragrant rosemary planters that helped keep away bugs. Service was phenomenal; wine selections & recommendations were perfect. First course – mussels & Bibb salad – were very very good, the salad was particularly nice. But the stars of the whole show were the main courses. The duck breast and harissa lamb leg were simply among the very best dishes we’ve ever had. Bravo to the whole team and thanks for a memorable anniversary dinner!

    We had an early dinner at Grand Tour and were happy with their outdoor seating as we are still a little covid-squeamish. The service was friendly, helpful and on top of things. Indoors looked cool and comfortable and if it wasn't for covid, we'd have been very happy in there. We both had the duck which was beautifully prepared with delicious vegetables, and perfectly cooked. We shared a 16 oz beer which was perfect for an early dinner. GT is pricey and we chose not to have appetizers or dessert (we very very rarely have dessert.) They have a nice wine list but a glass of wine was pretty pricey too. All things are pricey these days, and GT also automatically pops on a 20% gratuity even though we were just a party of 2, which we thought was a little presumptuous. We usually give a 20% tip anyway, but think that should be up to the customer. Regardless, GT was a lovely experience and the food was excellent.

    The menu has many interesting appetizers and mains. As well as vegetable sides. We had the broccolini with white anchovies— unique and quite tasty. Next time we will try the cauliflower. Our chicken confit was tasty if just a tad dry. The service was excellent. The wine selection was very good. We enjoyed a Rhône. We will definitely return. The outdoor seating was comfortable and indoors looked very appealing. A new addition to our city “go tos.”

    All but one aspect of my experience was perfect. I loved that outdoor seating was available but traffic noise was terrible. Obviously nothing the restaurant can do about that, but definitely recommend indoor seating if you want to have a conversation! Service was spectacular and the steak frites did not disappoint! Wine list was awfully nice too!

    Sat outside, in the area downstairs from the sidewalk. Not as nice as the area on the Newbury Street sidewalk that we were hoping for with a reservation, but was still pleasant. Inside ambience seemed like a lot of fun also. Service was very attentive, polite helpful. Bibb salad and tarte flambé were excellent. My wife's sea bass was excellent. Confit chicken was very good, but not quite as tasty as I'd expect for a confit. Cauliflower was very good. Sancerre with dinner hit the spot. Desert special - apple rhubarb baked thing had an overly sweet filling with a shortening style shell. Pretty pedestrian. Overall a very enjoyable experience and we'd eat there again and recommend it.

    My clients and I had a wonderful dinner at Grand Tour on 05/12/2022. We had lamb shank, salade niçoise, and loup du mer as entrées. As starters, we had tarte flambée, charcuterie board, and mussels with plenty of bread to sop up the yummy sauce. Our primary server Kandace was knowledgeable, attentive, and pleasant. The supporting staff ensured that we had an efficient and enjoyable experience, even during the dinner rush in Back Bay.

    The best steak tartare in Boston. Was also very impressed with the steak frites (it also comes with a not insignificant side salad- which was an unexpected but much enjoyed addition) Only downside- restaurant is only beer/wine. But the wine was great.

    The food is delicious and unique. The wine list is very strong. We enjoyed a birthday dinner for 4 on the first level. The space is tight but a great atmosphere. I wouldn't want to eat there when the bar is packed - there simply isn't comfortable space, but on a weekday night, great spot!

    We booked a mother's day reservation outside and when we arrived we looked at the set up and saw 2 nice 4 tops in the sun and 2 2 tops in the shade. We were three people. The host filled a 4 top with 3 people and then sent us to a 2 top with a 3rd chair. There was barely enough room for our food on the table. It was very tight. We asked why we weren't at a 4 top they said the one left was for 5 people. We asked the host to let us know if a larger table opens inside and never saw the host again. My husband approached the server when we saw only 3 people sitting but there were 5 people coming. Then our check came and 20% was added as a tip which to me is not good. We should have the opportunity to tip as we see fit. The positive was the food was good but it would be very hard for me to refer this spot.

    Newbury street is great, and you know what you are getting into by sitting outside there. That said, between the cars and the wind it was hard to hear. The food was fantastic, and I have only one complaint. They offered a prix fixe menu for Mothers Day. Then, they added several options that had a supplemental charge (not drinks, but actual items). This goes against what a prix fixe menu is supposed to be. I give them a pass on the caviar because some people might want it and it would be hard to include without blowing up the menu for everyone, but the omlet should have been part of the prix fixe. As for the service, our waitress was fantastic! The folks helping bring out items were less so. They failed to bring my daughters entre on time and so she sat while we were forced to choose between waiting and our food being cold or eating without her. I chauk that up to a busy day and they did make up for it in other ways for us so overall it was a great time.
