A “hidden jewel” in plain sight of Downtown Crossing, this “classic” French-Italian has “been around for generations” offering “tasty meals” , interesting cocktails and “oyster happy hours” ; the staff’s “professional” and the “vintage atmosphere” – think dark woods, white tablecloths and pressed metal ceiling tiles – telegraphs the “history” of the space, first opened in 1885.

Delightful ambiance, some of the best cocktails in the city, and you leave feeling truly well-fed. Make reservations, as even the bar begins to fill early and it is terribly difficult to get a seat. If you're around at lunch, be aware they have a lovely little espresso bar downstairs were you can get $1 slices, $6 sandwiches, and really well brewed Counter Culture coffee.

I made a reservation for 2 on a Friday night and once we arrived we were seated right away. We got offered a window seat which was very nice and the overall service was great. We got cocktails(Boston tea party), appetizers( mac and cheese, and escargot) and entres (steak, and scampi), all were very delicious. Will definitely be back.

My wife and I dined here on Sat 12/2. The food and service were exceptional as many of the other reviewers have stated. However, I am incredibly disappointed with the lack of follow-up and respect the restaurant has showed. After about 2.5 hours of eating at the restaurant, my wife became incredibly ill. The symptoms were generally worse than a simple norovirus. I called the restaurant the next morning, and left a voicemail detailing when & what we ate at the restaurant and that my wife had gotten ill. Two days later, my wife visited her primary care doctor, and after several tests - my wife was diagnosed with Trichinosis - a roundworm based in tainted pork. My wife's dish was the Sunday Gravy, which contains pork and it was the only pork she ate that weekend. I called the restaurant and asked to speak with a manager. The host was kind, and after a ~5 min wait, I was told the manager was in a meeting, could not speak & that they would call me back. I did not receive a call back. Two days later I again tried to reach a person of management, and was told again the manager could not be reached and that I would be called back. My wife, having used an online reservation service to make our original reservation, attempted to contact them through this reservation service as well on 12/13. Still no response. Again, I will reiterate that the food and staff were wonderful - up until the food poisoning. I am incredibly disappointed by the seeming lack of respect that this staff has exhibited by refusing to acknowledge or follow-up.
