Below average food. Inexperienced staff. Draft beer not available due to equipment malfunction. Cocktail special not available because they were out of an ingredient. Miss this one.

75 Chestnut was good! Much smaller than I expected from the photos, but cute atmosphere inside. There were hardly any guests, which made the place a bit more quiet then I would normally like but that's most likely due to COVID and the bitter cold of the evening.

We had one meal that was not up to par. The server immediately found a solution and the manager came out to apologize and ensure that aside from that we were taken care of. Well done on that front!

Was looking for a spot to have dinner after seeing a show at the Emerson Colonial Theatre. This was a short and pleasant walk through the Common and was a real treat! Food and service were wonderful and atmosphere was comfortable without being too casual. Would definitely recommend!

We took our adult children to dinner at 75 Chestnut after the theater. There was something to suit everyone on the creative menu, and all had a wonderful meal. The service was friendly and attentive. We took our time with cocktails; the server was there when we needed her but didn't hover. We had a separate and private booth, so no COVID worries. We will be back!

We enjoyed a high top table in the window by the bar. Out of the way and quiet. Ordered the Ceasar salad, Boston bibb salad, beef tenderloin au poivre, and the pumpkin ravioli; all were very good. The bar tender who waited on our table was attentive but not pushy. We did not feel rushed during our drinks and dinner. We would not hesitate to eat here again.

Overall a great experience! The food was excellent, holiday themed cocktails also very good. It was a little loud and tables close together, although to be expected for a small place. The servers were very attentive and overall this was a great dining experience.

Ok let me just start by saying I was SO excited to try out the crème brûlée trio because the pictures looked amazing. As someone who loves that dessert I can say with confidence this was the worst one I’ve ever had….it tasted and looking like pudding…no joke. We also tried the apple dessert which luckily was very good so we ended up only eating that one. The service was great but PLEASE don’t waste your money with the crème brûlée

I love 75 Chestnut! One of my girlfriends and I go every year as part of our Christmas tradition and were so excited to return last night after having to take last year off due to the pandemic that shall not be named. Everything was as wonderful as I remember! The prices seemed quite a bit higher than the last time we were there in 2019, but that's to be expected in these trying times. The staff was amazing, the food was delicious, and I definitely recommend making a reservation these days because the place was hopping! Love, love, love 75 Chestnut!!

First time I been there and didn't disappoint me. I went with my husband to celebrate his birthday. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly, the portions were satisfying and the food was good. We picked from the the wine Wednesday menu and it was well worth the price: two courses and two glasses of wine for ~ $40 pp.

The place is cozy, just like in the pictures, and is located in a beautiful neighborhood.

I will definitely come back soon.
