We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The Speak easy atmosphere is fun. The mixed drinks are exceptional and the food was excellent with highest quality ingredients and unique appetizers and enters. We'll be back.

Overall great food. The price for the portion size of the entree was a little much but the flavor was very good. Appetizers were great as well. Ambiance is a little loud and cramped but it is a bar so it’s not unexpected. Did not try the drinks.

Food was average. I’ve had the duck there before and it was not up to par this time. Expensive meal to just have it be ok. Drinks were good, too much ice. Service was good. Not ordering duck again. Good place for food and fun.

This restaurant is so charming. Hidden at the back of an micro creamery you have to ring a bell to gain entrance. The staff is perfect willing to chat and willing to let you be. The drinks are one of the many highlights. Even if we are ordering drinks we make at home they just taste better here. Proportions are good for us but we are older. Even then we also order an appetizer to share. It can be noisy or quiet depending on the time you go, so you can have it either way. The meals are well flavored and cooked to perfection.

OK food. Good drinks. Small place. Very noisy as it is a bar with some surrounding tablea. Cute idea to be a Speakeasy.

Great location for us. I love the concept and food was awesome. However, it did seem a bit to dark and after we left all our clothes smelled like we had been at a diner.

This place is adorable. I’ve been meaning to go for years. Glad we finally made it. The food was yummy, though small portions. The cocktails were fresh and delicious. They have a whiskey tasting flight Id like to try next time. We also didn’t have the boozy ice cream because we were already a bit tipsy by dessert time, but they also sounded amazing. I’ll definitely go back. The dark candlelit decor gives a relaxed vibe. It definitely has the hipster thing going on. Our waitress Kelly was a doll, but I already knew that going in because she’s also a yoga teacher and I’ve taken classes with her before. Only downside to this place is that these are Boston prices, but since there’s really nothing else of this kind in the metrowest area, I think they can get away with it.

Limited, overpriced menu and drinks. "Energetic" is one way of describing the din of "music" and conversation. We went to use up a gift card so at least the price was right. The server was attentive and personable, the food was tasty and the entrance/exit unique hidden away at the NE end of an ice cream parlor.

We had such a wonderful meal! From the drinks to the food to the service all was perfect! Although the restaurant has great ambiance it is quite lively and loud. It is something you have to be in the mood for. However, the food and service will keep us going back!

We held our second annual Operation: Holiday Cheer here with a few of our friends from outside the local area. We got right in and got a round facing the Bar. Our server (Kelly) was very welcoming, attentive and glad to provide explanations for anything new on the menu to our newest guests.
All the starters and mains were cooked to perfection, and the drinks here are always stellar. Kudos to Chef, Lyndsey and Alan for another great meal as well!
Also we learned that LTGT collaborated on a new gin with Bully Boy, and so I went down to Bacon’s last weekend to pick up a bottle of my own. Cheers!

Fun time - nice atmosphere with different cocktails to taste. However, the martini was quite small and the cocktails as well since most of the drink was ice. The short ribs were tasty but had a lot of fat and grizzle on them. Everyone enjoyed the duck dish, brussels sprouts, and the smores dessert.

After reading some reviews about what a fun and hip place this was to go too, I planned a surprise birthday celebration here for a friend and there were a total of 5 in our party. I was really excited to try something new and I was especially excited in anticipating the fun banter that would go along with the birthday girl (who is dippy) and the person who slides open the door to the secret speakeasy. I read you would be asked a few questions about why you were there and that you were suppose to say "you were there to see the shoe cobbler because your shoes were in need of repair." Well there was absolutely none of that. Zero. Instead, a guy slid open the door and asked us of we had a reservation. And I said yes. Then he saw that on my reservation I said it was a birthday celebration and so he asked us to point out who the birthday person was. So in my mind I am thinking, "OK, well now there must be a second door to where all of the fun shenanigans will go on," but nope, we just got seated at our table. We were all so disenchanted and let down. Really, there was NOTHING speakeasy about the place, except that it was very dark in there. We tried not to be disappointed and made the best of it. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about drink recommendations and most of the food was very delicious - waffle fries were cold and limp, not crisp at all. At the end of dinner, I was thinking that the waitress would be bringing some sort of birthday celebration to the table. Notta. Nothing, not even after spending $300+ there and not including the tip. What was the point of having us point out who the birthday girl was if her birthday was not even acknowledged???? So now I feel like I have to have a make up birthday celebration for her, because this goes down as being the most lame speakeasy in history.

Cool place with great cocktails. Food was not the highlight. Spent a lot on Steak Frites and Scallops which was subpar and extremely salty. If you want a cool vibe with creative drinks highly recommended just plan to go somewhere else for dinner.

We have been to Less Than Greater Than many times and were very disappointed with this experience. Our server paid very little attention to us and when he did, most of what he said was nonsense. We ordered cocktails and a cheese plate then, a long while later when the server finally returned, we ordered an entree to share with a bottle of wine. When the entree arrived, it was tiny; we thought it was half the portion, but it was not. We also split a dessert. After finishing that, we asked to take the rest of our bottle of wine home and were informed that the restaurant did not offer that as an option. This would have been nice to know when we ordered it! We have not been to a restaurant that does not allow you to take the rest of your wine in many years.

The cocktails are great, from the interactions with the bartender to the preparation and then drinking. Wonderful cocktail experience. The food on the other hand, leaves a lot to be desired. We had the chips and dip for starters, which were just fine. For our main course, my wife and I both ordered the Steak & Frites. I ordered mine rare and it was cooked to perfection. The problem is the quality of the beef and the excessive seasoning. Very tough and heavily overseasoned and frankly not enjoyable. For this price ($30 each), I expect much more. Go for the drinks. Order food with caution.

Service and quality of cocktails were top notch however the quality to price ratio of the food was only fair. We understand and support paying more for locally sourced produce and proteins but compared to other places offering comparable dishes this establishment was way off the mark to the point we'll never order food again. We'll definitely go back for cocktails but that's it.
