This is possibly the best food and service that my wife and I have ever experienced. The restaurant is very small but the quality of food and the service are very, very, large. Every dish that we have tried ( this was our 2nd visit ) has been the most flavorful experience and we were remembered by the staff and treated like family, on our 2nd visit. Im feeling guilty writing this review, I would rather keep the Fat Hen a secret. More

The food was excellent - we ordered about 6-7 different small plates/apps). Their cocktails were also amazing and interesting. Fun/cool atmosphere although we all though too loud (high ceilings make it noisy with crowds). Service was a little slow at first (wait staff was working hard, just spread too thinly), but then it seemed to settle in and then very attentive staff across all servers. All of us (foodies on our crowd of 4) would definitely and highly recommend! More

Contemporary American | Somerville, Boston

We took advantage of restaurant week but their menu offers 3 course dinners for a few bucks more outside of restaurant week so we will definitely want to take advantage of that. Plus the entree prices were very reasonable and outstandingly delicious. For the 3 courses I had a kale/shaved Brussels salad with a delicious dressing, then seared scallops with wild mushrooms and rabe in a scrumptious sauce (forget what), and a dessert of chocolate mousse. Everything just perfectly cooked and flavorful. My husband had the appetizer with crispy potatoes and a pistachio sauce, the huge pork chop which he loved, and I forget his dessert. We both loved the food and atmosphere. This will be someplace we’ll come back to with friends and for a nice dinner out. More

The orange creamsicle was very yummy, just like the picture! The burrata was simple but good! The truffle pizza could have been more creamy or had more flavor or something (even though we added truffle cheese as well). Next time we would try a different pizza, maybe one with a marinara sauce instead. The Nutella calzone was delicious. Our server was very efficient and nice, the hosts were also nice. Overall very good experience, we’ll prob be back! More

Discover Somerville

Somerville isn't just the forgotten sibling of Boston dining; it's now a hot spot for great food in its own right. From traditional diners to innovative Thai restaurants along Union Square, there's something for everyone. You'll find hearty, comforting clam chowder, meaty Boston baked beans, and succulent lobster rolls at diners and restaurants across the squares of the town. Best of all, it's just a Red Line trip away from the center of Boston. Once you're done eating authentic Somerville cuisine, why not top it all off with some Boston cream pie, which was invented in 1856 at what was then known as Boston's Parker House? If you'd rather stick around Somerville, pay a visit to one of the many bakeries that offer it.
