Service was excellent, the starter escargot was good. Food was good but the that we had was too salty. The sole was good, but the accompanying vegetables for all meals were quite simple (boiled greens and carrots). Overall though, the restaurant is pleasant and the...More

Ma Maison is a welcome portal to an authentic Parisian Bistro in Paris. The staff was swift and courteous. The food authentically French and a great value. A lovely location just off the Charles River and a nice walk down Charles Street from the Commons.

Yes, the pommes frites are homemade and delicious but so are the mussels, the meat dishes and the just-right-size of the place. The weekly specials are worth investigating. We love the unexpected location and urge reservations.

I love this place -- one of my two favorites whenever I am near Beacon Hill. The best authentic French meal you can get in the area.

This place is a little, unassuming gem that has excellent French food at a very reasonable price. Every single dish was superb. We've been meaning to for years; we finally did and we'll be heading back soon. Probably one of the best French restaurants in...More

Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking
