Doretta Taverna & Raw Bar
Greek fare in a chic space with a patio
Greek · Park Square · $$
Star chef Michael Schlow delivers this "modern" Greek concept near Boston Common, offering "delightful" , "upscale" dishes including olive oil–drizzled whole fish and "incredible" Mediterranean-inflected meze, complemented by an international wine program and "worthwhile" cocktails; service is "accommodating" in the casually elegant space, adorned with funky light fixtures and original art by the chef's wife, and a "beautiful" patio completes the picture.

I highly suggest Doretta Taverna! Came across it on Seated and decided to check it out - one of my best decisions this week. The vibe was great- the lighting, artwork, and overall atmosphere were very contemporary but funky! The service was fantastic- I felt like a VIP from the second I walked in. The food was incredible- the beet dip was an unexpected favorite! GET THE GRILLED OCTOPUS! Cooked to perfection. We also had the spinach pie, spicy lamb meatballs, and crispy eggplant. All were delicious. Definitely recommend the Medusa Locus cocktail- SO GOOD. GET IT!

This place is an absolute hidden gem. It's so convenient, but I never would've noticed it if I hadn't come across it in the Seated app. It's near Boston common, right near the end of Boylston. The food is amazing god damn. It's like fancier Greek food, so not your typical place but everything is so good. I got the lamb pasta and was one of my better decisions of the week. Go check them out.

Obviously greeks are the harshest critics of greek food especially when it's being done by non-greeks and my hats off to the chefs here . My barometer for good greek is octopus---and the dish is perfection. So well balanced with acidity on point--the lemon emulsion was texture heaven--almost a foam. Speaking of heaven, "getting the chicken" is always the boring bet for restaurant-goers and here I would highly recommend it. Greek food is simple and not remotely complex. It's all about highlighting good ingredients and these guys nailed it. My server Randy I want to bring with me on every dining experience. He knew the menu inside out --where everything was sourced ---and wasn't rattled by a single question. Cheers!
