Foursquare Tips

  • Beautiful place, great food. You have to try the Campfire Sunday (I found misleading the name), but the dessert is absolutely fab.
  • Main dishes are too small. Load up on small dishes instead.
  • Given the prices, we expected better service--and food! Extremely fatty steak (mostly inedible), bland dishes and tight seating--get your hipster fix elsewhere for less.
  • The oysters were fabulous - so many flavors in such a little bite! Be warned - the plates are small so getting a few smaller plates plus an entree is recommended!
  • Best of Boston 2016: Bar Program :: Bar manager Nic Mansur mixes one mean Manhattan, among other elegant, restrained cocktails; also a Francophile wine list and eclectic array of apritifs.
  • Here dishes read as interesting (e.g., grilled clams with cultured nasturtium butter) but eat with the simple gratification of a perfectly roasted chicken. Chopped liver has never felt so relevant.
  • I hate when restaurants call it tapas or family style but all the plates cost the same as regular sized entrees. Having said that, the food was great, but be prepared to shell out.
  • Among their American plates, smoky chicken wings are especially amazing. Its impossible not to love the seafood chowder thick with clams, pieces of hard-seared striped bass, and hunks of pork belly.
  • Sit at the bar, say hi to Nick. Ask for advice about drinks or life.
  • Great cocktails, small plates...loved the wood-burning fire
  • The cocktail program is amazing. Don't forget to grab a whipped camomile ricotta while you're there.
  • Love the small plate concept.
  • fluke is a+
  • Expensive for the small portions! Overall worth it and can recommend the fried clams, old fashioneds, & baked bean side. But the "wedge salad" wasn't a wedge and lobster roll was overly buttery.
