  • I do not give such praise lightly as it is my profession to truly distinguish the great establishments from the average – and The Bistro is a great establishment in every sense.

  • We greatly enjoyed our romantic dinner. The sunset was beautiful, and the food was delicious! The salmon was the best I’ve ever had! Thank you for the unique experience while we visited Boston!

  • As a Landmarks Orchestra attendee, I thoroughly enjoy The Charles River Bistro’s food service. They are very hospitable even when there is a very large crowd at the Hatch Shell. I used to bring my own food for years, but The Bistro’s selection is healthy and gourmet. My husband and I love it.
