Reviews of 75 Chestnut

From a 75 Chestnut Guest

A great place for a date or to bring out of town guests. I have been here with many guests for a classic Boston experience. The food and service are excellent. Be sure to visit for brunch - the sticky buns they offer for free are to die for.

This is the second time we have eaten here and it keeps getting better. Even though it was a crowded Friday Night on a graduation weekend, the service was great and we were seated at our reservation time. The table ordered the fried calamari, which is true to New England frying - light and grease free!! We had the cod, mahi mahi and the halibut specials. All were delicious with great sides. Love the crowd, very Bostonian, can't wait to get back there!!

75 is a friendly, reasonably priced (by beacon hill standards) place to grab a bite to eat or a casual drink. I've never had anything off their menu that i didn't enjoy. It's a small place and i wish the bar area were a bit larger, but all in all it's one of my favorite places in the neighborhood.

The servers were quite knowledgeable about both the menu (despite it being altered for the occasion), as well as the wine and cocktail list. Our waiter was able to offer quick suggestions to us upon request, and was quite attentive throughout the entire evening. The food here is reasonably priced and quite frankly, delicious! Another great thing about 75 Chestnut is that many of their cocktails and wines are "green," and they even host Green Thursdays weekly. We will definitely be back!

My family and I had a meal at your restaurant last month. We were visiting Boston from England, UK.

"A great neighbor"
By Denise Taylor, Globe correspondent March 24, 2005

Restaurants for me are usually all about the food. Glaring lights, bad service, impressively garish decor -- all is forgiven for, say, a perfect curry buzzing with flavor, or a luscious stew. But the bar at 75 Chestnut could win me over even with a cup of instant soup.

This sliver of a room, tucked into the side pocket of the main restaurant, is not so much a place you walk into. Rather, it's a cozy nook you sink into, like a big cushy sofa. Mind you, nothing here is upholstered. It's just that with all the dark, polished wood, the bronze-hued light warming the room, and the lantern-lit rows of Beacon Hill brownstones forming the backdrop outside, it just feels good to hang out here...

"75 Chestntu Still Charms"
By Martha L. Ballard, April 2001

"It still seems like your own little secret, this subtly signed, discreetly placed little spot located just steps from the bustle of Charles Street. Its unexpected presence on semi-residential Chestnut, with an austere black awning framed by a pair of paned bowfront windows, feels like something that slipped in and took root at the dawn of time, before draconian zoning laws could have excluded it. This is not a place that one just spots and happens to saunter in; you must stride purposefully off Charles Street, past the intriguing antique shops, and be looking for the entrance." ...Continue >>
