We had dinner here to celebrate our anniversary and our last night in Boston. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding! It was also a beautiful restaurant. We highly recommend it!

My husband and I recently took a trip to Boston to celebrate my birthday. On our first day in town, the hotel and the hotel bartender recommended Mooo for dinner. We were able to make online reservations within the next half hour and walked over...to the restaurant. We walked in about 5:20 and were informed that they didn't start dinner service until 5:30 but to please have a seat and they would seat us shortly. Once seated, I received a menu with "Happy Birthday" printed across the top - nice touch. Prices are pretty comparable to any high end steak house. We decided to spit a steak, shrimp scampi, creamed spinach and brussel sprouts. While waiting for our dinner, they brought out the softest dinner rolls lightly salted on top with butter. Talk about melt in your mouth. The dinner was delicious. At the end of the meal, the waiter brought out a birthday desert compliments of the chef. It was a very enjoyable meal.More

I made a birthday party reservation for 6 people at the last min and was very happy to be accommodate. I was asked what’s the occasion. Upon arrival we were seated right next to exit/ entrance. Smart staff would use common sense and figure out...that people who come for regular dinner don’t need a special table and people with some sort of event might be pleased to have a better table. Waitress…. NO PERSONALITY or knowledge how to serve. Asked for chocolate martini and I was asked if I wanted olives. Then she came back and said they don’t have chocolate martini. Apple martini? Came back again with answer “no” I ordered a fish and my daughter ordered the same. Both of us got only half of the fish with!!!! STAKE knives. Fish was good though. Dropped utensil was never replaced. Basically we were self served the entire dinner. They should change the name of this place Mooo-Boooooo. Never again. ☝️More

Let me start by saying the food was delicious. Our server was average. He wasn't as attentive once he took our order and we didn't order a lot of extras. The prices were ridiculously expensive.

Excellent service. Everyone enjoyed their dinner and drinks. No room for desserts. The only complaint was the room was very cold. We had a private room but they just couldn't warm it up.

MOOO Beacon Hill is a casual elegant steakhouse serving American seafood and steaks, in the Beacon Hill area of Boston, Massachusetts. In terms of variety, the menu offerings are plentiful and unique, compared to similar venues, serving this style of food at a commensurate price...point. Customers can expect to pay roughly roughly fifty per person, for brunch and over a hundred per person for dinner. Portion size is a bit large for the cost and restaurant tier. Considering these factors, as well as the quality and presentation of food, the restaurant met my expectations. Everything was cooked to order. Beverage wise, drinks were a little overpriced. Most cost over 20 dollars each. Though this is Boston, and drinks at casual pubs are upwards of fifteen a pop. During our most recent visit, we did make reservations in advance, and it took approximately 10-15 minutes to be seated. We have additional people joining our party and they did accommodate that. Drinks came out slow. Appetizers came out in a reasonable amount of time. Main courses came out in a reasonable amount of time. The serving staff was formal and knowledgeable. The atmosphere is elegant, and the overall design of the restaurant is hushed and serene, which suits the intended brand identity and cuisine style. Regarding ambiance, the restaurant is dimly lit towards the back, though light and airy at the entrance. The noise level is quiet. It is a good place to go on a date. Scale wise, tables are somewhat close together within multiple dining spaces, lending itself to the restaurant’s coveted, swanky feel. Overall, I would recommend and anticipate coming back again.More

Do not head to Moo if you are looking for one of the city's acclaimed Sunday Brunch experiences. We had an 11:00 reservation expecting to see a variety of brunch options on the menu. Instead we were given a lunch menu with a "brunch" card...offering which listed 4 items; an omelet, smoked salmon, eggs benedict, or pancakes. Our waiter informed us they really don't do brunch and that the menus were as is with no substitutions. This remark was uncalled for considering we didn't ask about substitutions but simply if the chef would be willing to prepare any other brunch type options. Apparently, the more brunchy items, like omelets, hashes, breakfast meats are only served until 10:30 am. No effort was made to accommodate our requests, something we have not encountered in other restaurants of this caliber around the city. In addition, when making the reservation we mentioned we were celebrating a birthday. The server never thought to bring over a "happy birthday" plate or even stick a candle in one of the parker roll trays he brought out. We walked away disappointed in the food variety and service and see why the restaurant was empty at a time when other establishments in Boston are bustling with brunch enthusiasts.More

Dinner was fantastic. First, let's start with the bread: coming from the country of bread, France, the brioches with a tiny pinch of salt were very tasty...even more with butter. Second, my filet came out perfect. The pepper sauce with the seeds added a legitimate...twist to the meat. The risotto side with truffles couldn't have tasted any yummier...maybe a bit too small for a shared side. Shrimp scampi was delicious, al dante pasta with decent amount of big shrimp and the sauce had a good unexpected kick in it. Finally, our only slight disappointment was maybe the first dessert we ordered, the Panna cotta strawberries and cream. We both weren't comfortable with the overall taste and our flawless waiter nicely agreed to exchange it for the chocolate cake. This piece of dessert was truly enormous and off the chart even if you're not a chocolate lover like me. Drinks and coffee might be overpriced but it's the downside of most fancy restaurants. Overall a wonderful dinner with immaculate service. This place tops a lot of other well known steakhouses in the city.More

Fine spot! Extensive wine list and nice variety on the menu as well. You can eat well for $1000 or for $200 here, so definitely look over the whole menu—not just the steak. Two of us enjoyed the beef Wellington—beautifully cooked and presented—while two others...shared the branzino. Sharing, generally, is very possible with the portions here. The shrimp were delightfully large and firm, and the ahi tuna a very nice way to start things off. Service was incredibly relaxed and friendly throughout. Worth the investment!!!More

The service is amazing which is why I am giving this restaurant 3 stars and not a well deserved 2 stars. The food just wasn't happening. The 90 day dry aged rib steak was set to fail when it was cut under an inch thick....If I'm going to pay $85 for a steak why not charge $110 and offer a real cut of meat. The thin cut robbed the meat of the extended dry aged flavor. The cream spinach was a total catastrophe. I could not count how many cheeses were in the lobster mac and cheese but it was overkill. In general I found everything desperately creative. The atmosphere is a posh, hip steakhouse with an impressive bar menu to sample decedent spirits. That's all you're going to get. And, the bread is good. The chef needs to tone it down a bit, have a back to basics approach and use his creativity to accent his food not engulf it. He needs to rethink his delivery of what could be an awesome upscale steakhouse menu. Rib steaks start at an inch and a half.More

Expensive- Steaks start around $38 and go up - don't include sides which range from about $6-$20 each (but big enough to share). Appetizers and desserts roughly $12-30 each.
