Great spot for business dinners and lunches – My company uses Radius quite frequently for business meetings and the staff never fails to meet our expectations. Whether it is a strict time frame that we need to be out by or getting late guests their meal, the team at Radius makes it seem effortless. We have tried other spaces, but always return because they do it the best.
Oh... make sure you try the prime rib eye if you get the chance. Amazing!
Outstanding. – I handle private events for our firm all over the United States. I have never been more relaxed at an event with our top clients as I was when I had my event at Radius. The staff was outstanding, the food delicious and appropriate for the group. (nothing messy, bite-sized) All in all it was a perfect venue for impressing the powers that be. I would trust this restaurant with any event, be it a small dinner for two or a buyout for 200.
Huge dis-aapontment – Having been in the food business for the past 30 years, I found Radius to be quite disappointing. Service was rushed from the minute we were seated. Appetizers were forgetable, gnochi and ahi, and entrees were mediocre at best. Desserts were a huge disapointment. Cepe Ice cream, Fennugreek Ice Cream? They have managed to take the "Dessert" out of Dessert!! Best part of the meal was the dinner rolls, and the over-priced wine. I doubt I will return,
Disappointing! – Our waiter had body odor. Do not order the cobb salad - it's disgusting. Don't go unless you have at least an hour and a half to dine because service is SLOW.
Modern chic atmosphere, romantic dining experience, excellent waiting staff – Radius is a fantastically organised restaurant. The service (from the reservation, coat check, waiting staff) is fabulous. The decor of this place is very impressive. I"ve been here once for lunch and another for dinner. The downstairs looks amazing, but I have yet to be down tehre ( i think tis for larger functions). The food at Radius is okay as well, great presentation, quiet for a dinner for two. I recommend Radius, though its prices are a bit high. I'd rather choose another place for dinner. However, this is definitely a great place for a POWER LUNCH.
Great! – From the moment we entered this fine restaurant, we were impressed. We arrived about 20 mins. before our reservation, but we were seated immediately. We had lunch (prix fixe $20.04!) We were offered still water or sparkling water. Our appetizers (tomato and onion salad and cucumber soup) were each mouthwatering. The presentation was even incredible. Our entrees (roasted chicken breast and salmon) were tasty and satisfying. The sour dough rolls that accompanied our meals were delicious. Dessert was fresh and a perfect ending to our meal. Wait staff was attentive, but not stifling. As soon as our water glasses neared halfway empty, they were refilled (several times). The lunch was a birthday celebration and I'd noted it when I made the reservation. When dessert was served to the "birthday boy", it came with a sparkling candle and 'Happy Birthday' written in chocolate across the rim of the plate. In addition, he was given a birthday card from the restaurant staff as well as a gift certificate for a visit in November. This truly was a fine dining experience. I look forward to another visit.
Boston's highly appraised destination restaurant for fine dining continues to impress with an outstanding take on modern French cuisine. – One of the city's elite restaurants, Radius is the establishment of choice for the nearby Financial District's deal makers and power brokers. Patrons enjoy an unparalleled level of service, whether feasting in the sleek, minimalist dining room or tipping back a cocktail in the stylish lounge. The modern French menu is the definition of sophistication; intricate, whimsical dishes that draw heavily on current trends and local, seasonal ingredients. Typical of the starters is the foie gras a la Radius, whose presentation changes nightly. For a standout entree, leave room for the slow-roasted rib-eye with Robuchon potatoes, haricots verts, pearl onions and red wine sauce.

If you can afford it, you must eat here. – Excellent. Service is generally very quality, although the last time I went (I go once a year for a special occassion), they did screw up a few minor things (missing a place setting, late with the wine). But that was just once - the other times have been literally perfect. The food is very tasty. Don't eat the whole day and go to the dinner, order the chef's tasting menu with wine paring (it's pricey but a great time).
Totally Worth it!!! – So far this has been the only fine dining experience in Boston where the level of everything was awesome. From the hostess & the bar tenders to the food & cocktails. This is how fine dining should be - in my opinion. The bar is a bit small, but has a fierce feel - very cosmopolitan meets chic. HIGHLY RECOMENDED!
Horrendous service, great food – Went for lunch with a group of seven and we were all frustrated by the shockingly bad service. Despite the swarms of waiters floating around the restaurant, we went ignored for the better part of the 90 minutes we spent at Radius. The only exception was the "bread girl" who kept our plates full of delicious rolls. The remainder of the wait staff seemed to be too busy keeping their hair properly primped.
Although we all agreed that the food was extraordinary -- one of the best burgers in Boston, tremendous fish and delicious salads -- it was overshadowed by the lack of attention we received. If you must go, stick to the bar.
