Mexican | Back Bay, Boston

Honestly, my only real complaint is how loud the restaurant is. I understand it's a bar, but it was 5:45 on a Monday when I went. My party was there for the food as well as the drinks, and it was difficult to have a conversation during our meal. The food and drinks were delicious as usual, though I did feel like the drinks were particularly stingy (mostly ice). For $15 a drink, you should probably give people a standard portion and not skimp by using way too much ice. All that being said, I really enjoy this restaurant, so I would love to see some minor improvements to make it even better! More

I went to Uni with a partner and we were seated right in front of the Maki chef. He was charismatic, the perfect level of chatty and willing to explain ingredients and flavours whenever we asked, plus we watched the rolls be prepared all night. The food itself was incredible. A vast array of non red meat options and very high quality sushi. It was a special taste experience. The ambience is great it isn’t too full and noise doesn’t travel to the bar. Drinks are creative and reasonably priced relative to the food. Highly recommend More

-our waiter was a bit slow and not very aware of what changes could be made on the menu (turns out bo changes were accepted in the sushi rolls). he then told us there was no wasabi available. I love eating wasabi w my sushi so i was disappointed. The manager came over and said the rolls were on the house. I thought that was very graceful and generous. -cocktails were very good -tuna poke was excellent Overall this is a very fun place always full and popping. More

Kashmir has great food in a no frills atmosphere right on Newbury Street. Service can be a bit slow, but not terrible. I have a gluten allergy and I was a little uncertain if the waiter understood the issue, but I've eaten here a few times and never had a problem. Lastly, the spice level is not clear to me either. I ordered medium the first time just to be safe and it was not spicy at all. I ordered hot the next time and the food was inedible because it was so spicy (there is an extra hot level so I can't imagine how hot that must be!). The order patio is nice in the summer. Definitely recommend if you like Indian food! More

$$$$
Italian | Back Bay, Boston

I was so impressed with the food at Il Tartufo, especially given that we ordered off of the $18 Spring menu! I'm so used to places providing extremely small portions when doing these 'restaurant week' offerings, but not the case here. I had the chicken mousse and skatewing, my friend the beef tartar and the agnolotti. We also ordered a formaggio app off the full menu, because we thought we might need something extra. The rice flavors and the full portions left us both satisfied. The delicate sauce served with the skatewing and the creamier sauce of the agnolotti were both incredible. The place was busy and the tables are small so its a bit tight in there. Our server was also handling many tables, so service was very minimal, but functional. The one item that stuck for me was the wine service. They were advertising $25 spring wines, but our server couldn't give us any recommendations as he hadn't tried any of the new wines. He did however recommend a $50 bottle of wine instead. I get that you want the up sale, but I would hope that management would have their servers sample new wines or at least provide basic tasting notes, if your going to offer discounted bottles. We ended up with a nice crisp Bianco off the Spring menu (I googled the tasting notes before we ordered) and were very happy with it. It paired very nicely with the rich flavors of the mousse and delicate fish. I would definitely go back! More
