Not very impressive

Staff was lackluster. Kitchen staff could be overheard swearing and trying to figure out how to cook the entrees. Food was over salted and the menu was a weird mix of dishes that lacked any sort of cohesiveness or definition. Definitely over priced and really saddened by the experience.

I have never been treated like that before

If you are going to be open on New Years Eve, then have some staff that are willing to work. I have never experienced such poor service and rude management in my life. The saddest part is that the food is quite good. The management and servers succeeded in ruining the whole experience by acting as if they were our guests rather then the other way round.

We love getting yelled at by the restaurant owner!

Worst restaurant management experience EVER! Can you imagine that the OWNER of this place chased after us to complain that we only left a $4 tip on a $300 tab--when we actually left a $45 tip??? And, he didn't apologize when the mistake was realized. THIS IS THE WORST RUN RESTAURANT ON THE PLANET. The food is actually very good, but the service was super-slow and unprofessional (we left a 15% tip anyway), the wine was truly ordinary (we sent a half-finished bottle back and didn't ask for or expect anything off our check). We spend $300 for dinner for 2 of us at least once a month all over Boston and are professional diners; this place is totally unprofessional and not recommended at all--unless you want your New Year's Eve and 2nd Anniversary to be a complete disaster!! Our first time there was also good food but lacking service--especially for a $300 tab. The owner has no concept of the hospitality business and made us feel like he was our guest. That's the worst thing any restaurant can do. I strongly recommend avoiding this restaurant--unless you love paying top dollar for slow service, average/overpriced wine and management that should be running an auto shop.

The best in Boston for Food, Wine and Cheese

If you want to learn about wine or if you are a wine expert looking for a great value, this is the best place to go in the area.

Chris Campbell, the owner, sommelier and cheese expert can guide the uninitiated to appropriately priced wine that will knock their socks off. For those that know wine, he also stocks his cellar with some of the finest wines available at prices that are almost always far below those you can find elsewhere. Every wine connosseiur familiar with Boston knows about Troquet.

They do a very good job of matching food and wine with a variety of dishe that are all superbly prepared. Their suckling pig and steak dishes are my favorites.

Lest I forget, their cheese selection is excellent. There are often a dozen or more to choose from, from various countries, and perfectly ripened due to Chris' 'cheese-expertise.'

This is one of the best restaurants in Boston year after year.

Very good, but not cheap

It's a nice small room upstairs. Dishes are well prepared and full of flavor. Service is very good. It's a good dining experience, but it's not cheap. It might be overpriced.
