REally Bad – Hostess did not even look at us when we arrived, until I asked her to do so. She took our coats and pointed to a table. The soup was cold and desperately needed salt, When it got it was really good. The pea puree with the rack of lamb was cold, very cold. The lamb was perfect.
Possibilities, but needs attention. Way overpriced for service
Disappointing – During a recent business trip, I thought this place fell short. The ambience was very nice, a bit dark but cozy. The service was excellent but I was disappointed with the menu, which featured a lot of standard items suck as grilled steak, colorado lamb, chicken cordon bleu...etc. I guess I just expected more creativity. I started with the broiled escargot, which were good, but similar to many other versions that I've eaten in the past. Nothing particularly interesting about it. I ordered the Lobster Scampi for my entree and, again, sort of boring. My partner ordered the Alaskan King Salmon which was five-spice seasoned and served with nutmeg infused creamed spinach, and that was tasty. For dessert we tried the cinnamon creme brulee and the chocolate bread pudding. Both were good. The wine list was somewhat limited. Not a bad place, but I'm sure Boston has better to offer.
In a League of It's Own – I really do not know what to say other than: FANTASTIC, INCREDIBLE, UNREAL, DELICIOUS, WORTH EVERY PENNY. This was my first trip to 75 and I cannot wait to go back.
75 Chestnut is simply class – I hate to let the secret out- but this neighborhood bar is nothing but elegance, romance, and simplicity. We order from the bar menu or the dinerr app menu to save $$ and still have a wonderful time. Go their for raises and quiet kisses.
Deliciously unique – "Our dinner last night was quite simply the best meal I have ever had. The flavors, the pace, the ambiance -- everything was perfect. I can't wait to go back."
truly magical – "elegant, intimate atmosphere, excellent service, and beautifully prepared meals make dining at 75 Chestnut's a memorable event. I had a wonderful lobster risotto to start, a duck entree, and the creme brulee. for cheese fans, there's quite a selection on the cheese plate. portions are just perfect, enough to fill me up, but not so much that i dread dessert. this is definitely a perfect restaurant for special occasions. i can't wait to go back again!!!"
Pros: friendly staff, beautiful settings, romantic
True "Feast" – "I have dined here countless times and they surpass my expectations every time. Chef Michael Heath's creativity for food with fresh herbs and ingredients from the Northeast is absolutely amazing. You have to drop the regular idea of "restaurant" though. You don't go there just to eat food and drink wine, but you go there to have a dining "experience". Who would've thought scallops and spinach go perfect in a sweet carrot sauce with mint? Or how about figs on gorganzola toast points with fresh farmer's greens and drizzled with lemon thyme honey? Steamed Atlantic salmon in lettuce leaves with a sweet dill sauce? It's like a magic. It's a true feast."
A Must-Try!!! – I really loved 75 Chestnut. I live nearby and have tried nearly every restaurant in the neighborhood, but 75 Chestnut is the best. Its quality, ambience and service are outstanding. We never once had to wave down our waiter, and he suggested a great wine and soup (the Herbed Clam and Shrimp Chowder!) for us to try. Also, it has great apps if you don't want to spend so much on the pricey entrees.
Was I at a museum? – The food is simply art !! so worth every penny and more than we expected. So personal and ever so fabulous. I highly suggest 75 Chestnut for any special event: a memory of a meal; not often possible is it !?
The Best – This has THE BEST View, THE BEST Food, THE BEST Service, and THE BEST Chef in town. A++
