Boston doesn't really have great Greek restaurants, and this probably the best. Very good Greek food, good Greek wines, nice atmosphere, good service. Even if there were other Greek restaurants in Boston, this would rank up there as one of the best. Go here for...More

Michael Schlow’s take on Greek Mediterranean cuisine is not one to be missed! All of the small plates we tried (tzatziki spread, ahi tuna, scallops, shrimp, and oysters pictured below) were outstanding - never mind the fact that they were accompanied by several visits by...More

This is a high end Greek restaurant in a stylish yet casual setting. The drinks are good and the service is fine, if a bit slow, but the food is exceptional. The menu is varied, with meat, fish and vegetarian options. We had a number...More

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...More

We stopped in for a late mezze dinner and left happy. The tatziki spread was as it should be, and there were no real misses on any of our choices. The meatballs were rich and flavorful, the chickpea fritters crispy with a nice beet yogurt...More

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...More

Horrible horrible service. Loud, drinks were slow, water never refilled. Never cleared our table, sat at 7 ordered apps and entree, served at 9:30....certainly not worth the wait.

We shared the mezze: salads, spreads, sausages, and lamb meatballs which were so deliciously prepared and full of flavor it was hard to decide which was the favorite. It was all washed down by a lovely Greek white wine and followed by pastry and coffee....More

We visited Doretta last March during restaurant week and the experience we had was enough to bring us back in the door. We only came for cocktails and oysters this time but it was the service from the bar that inspired this review. I want...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
