The food was imaginative, Innovative and delicious. Try the smoked duck. Yum! Service was friendly, attentive and efficient. One thing I really appreciated about Viale was that the background music was interesting and upbeat but not overwhelming. It was easy to have a conversation with my dining partners. More

American | South Boston, Boston

Came here with my girls' part of our girls' weekend. They have a 90s hip hop brunch every 1st Sunday of the month and found that to be a bit disappointing as it was just 90s tunes playing with no other themes adding to it (like hiphop themed drinks/food, outfits etc.). If they do ramp that up it would definitely be another star!. Other than that the service was great, albeit our food did take some time to come out, BUT when it did WOW WOW WOW so good! My Good Morning Pizza was so big that I had to take some with me even AFTER I shared with BOTH of my girls (they kindly provided a plastic bag for me to make a portable cooler- to keep it refrigerated until I got to a fridge- with the ice from the ice bucket that held our champagne for our mimosas, which were great too!) . The food I sampled off their plates, the S'mores French Toast and the Chicken and Waffle Sandwich were also heavenly! And the bill was not bad at all for ordering our food plus splitting a table mimosa (which came out to be about 2 mimosas per person for 3 people) - a little less than $30 per person. Overall if you could just be a little patient for the food , it's a great place to come and eat and drink while bopping to some 90s hiphop jams :) More

French American | Jamaica Plain, Boston

Not sure what's better, the food or the friendliness of the staff? Both are outstanding!! This little restaurant is now our favorite place in Boston. We think it serves up the best food in the city! The spices the chef uses are like no other and the flavors are original. Everything tastes fresh. Even the cocktails are remarkable. If I have to offer an unsolicited suggestion it would be that perhaps they could add a few more items for people who don't like meat but don't go the full vegetarian route... more fish (without seafood). But that took a lot of thinking to suggest. More

My husband and I had a lovely time at The Table at Season to Taste. The four-course tasting menu is very filling and reasonably priced, especially since service is included. We also highly recommend the wine pairing. Though it's not the most interesting or delectable tasting menu in Boston (see O ya for that), the food is very good and the atmosphere and service make the experience top notch. More

Farm-to-table | Nantucket, Cape Cod and the Islands

This is a great place for sharing plates, in fact it’s encouraged but not required! We started with a stuffed artichoke which was tender and flavorful. Then moved onto the the cauliflower which is perfectly cooked and spiced in a most unusual way! For our larger plate we chose duck confit salad with a perfectly poached egg, another great combination! This is fast becoming one of my favorite places on Nantucket, healthy, creative and delicious fare! You must try it! More

Discover Boston

Beantown, dubbed for the baked beans that put the city on the map, is about far more than beans these days. Local restaurants channel the region’s farm-to-table traditions and celebrate the iconic seafood of New England’s coast—no trip to the region is complete without a proper lobster (pronounced “lob-stah,” steamed and served with butter and corn on-the-cob), freshly shucked oysters, fried clams—you name it. Hometown to a handful of internationally influential female restaurateurs and the inimitable legacy of Julia Child, who called Cambridge home, Boston will always be a city where liberal sensibilities meet a global approach, in politics and on the plate.
