Fish tacos were fresh and tasty and scallops in the risotto were cooked perfectly. Good selection of well priced wines by the glass. Great service from Val. Literally a 2 minute walk from Boston Opera House. Only slight negative is there’s little ambience so may...More

The food here was very good and the service was excellent and quite attentive. A nice bright, attractive setting. Prices were a bit high, but they delivered a nice experience.

We went here for dinner with another couple who really like this restaurant. Other than its location near theaters, I'm not sure why you'd want to eat a meal in an Equinox. And there are plenty of other good restaurants in this area. On the...More

We liked this a lot. It’s in the Ritz and although it was hard to find (poor signage), we were glad we finally got there! The restaurant is on a upper floor and is small so make a reservation. Most of the tables are positioned...More
