    The food here is unsurpassed. My friend and I were blown away by the flavors and originality. The service was incredible. Ariana was super knowledgeable and attentive. Sofia was warm and engaging. We cannot wait to come again and have told all our friends to do the same! Bravo!

    Great service with very good food. One note, check the fruit in the charcuterie platter before sending out. Quite a bit of it was shriveled and not edible.

    Excellent appetizers , the lamb meatballs were exceptional ! Drinks were well made, nice to see Hendricks and Mac Clalland on the menu Did not care for Brussels sprouts but fried chicken was good, wish I had a breast instead of two legs/thighs. Will definitely dine here again p

    After waiting awhile for our table on a Saturday night, staff was very apologetic, and offered up their starter of delicious fried pickles with dip once we were seated. Staff was very kind, and provided excellent service. Food was top notch.

    Excellent food well prepared. They are a bit understaffed and although the waitress was pleasant, and well informed there were delays in the meal presentation. However, overall, it was an excellent experience.

    Nice place, waitress was great. The sourdough bread was awesome. I had the fried chicken. It was kind of over cooked. I thought the food overall was a bit bland. It’s worth checking the place out. Don’t sit to close to the door on cold days you’ll feel it.

    Comfortable and date-night casual, with a small but creative menu. Very pleasant atmosphere and friendly, just-attentive-enough service. It was busy at 6pm on a Tuesday, so I would recommend reservations. Fairly loud, and I can imagine it would be even louder at capacity.

    Buttercup was awesome!! From the cocktails, (obsessed with The Last Laugh). To the charcuteries board, the bread with different dips and the fish tacos everything we ordered was stellar-far better than many a restaurant in Boston!! Can’t wait to go back!!

    Fabulous from the moment I walked in. Greeted with kindness and professionalism. Got water the minute I sat down and Server was over a few minutes later. Never had to look for server for anything. She was attentive but not overly. The place has a good feel! I will be returning soon.

    Better than good food and better than great service. Understanding that weekend nights are just about everywhere noisy, I felt it was a bit loud given our 6:00 PM reservation. Nonetheless, great venue for our needs, 65+ years old couple.

    We had an awesome meal with fabulous service by Arianna! Huge appetizers (I had the squash with quinoa and goat cheese, hubby had the coconut squash soup). Filling entrees really hit the spot on a cool Fall evening: short rib with homemade pasta, and lamb shank with mashed potatoes. Delish! Don’t miss the butterscotch pudding!
