    So happy we found Grand Tour on our Boston weekend getaway. We had an excellent experience at Grand Tour. The food was delicious, elevated but not contrived, fresh flavors with bright colors and yet totally warmed the belly. Could not have enjoyed it more. If you’re a foodie, put this one on your list! Service was also exceptional. Stand outs: the Duck Breast, endive & beet salad, Bok Choy, Cauliflower w Harissa.

    Small bistro with open kitchen. Not many seats, so reserve early. Menu is French inspired and rather small. We order entrees and starters & sides to share. Everything we had was excellent! Service was great. Will certainly come back.

    Great spot for a date night, most of the food was excellent (we had tartare, squash, sole, duck, mushrooms, and cauliflower). I won't order the cauliflower again, but I would go back for everything else. The service was good, but understand that it is a small space, very much a bistro vibe. They serve wine and beer only, no cocktails, but the wine list was strong for french labels. They did not have coffee service at the time I went, which was disappointing, but I still plan to go back. Overall it was a really good experience.

    We had the clams as an app and they were fantastic. I would return just for them alone. Our side dishes were excellent: cauliflower and bok choy. Again I would return and just get all the side dishes they were that good. For main course I had dover sole and my friend had the steak. Excellent. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. Def. will return.

    The service was excellent. The food was not very good (we had a mix of very bland appetizers/veggies & split a dinner entree) & the wine was overpriced. We won't be going back.

    Server wasn’t very attentive of us, we need to constantly call the server to get them to serve us. Order the steak and frites and it was one of the worse steak I’ve had. Steak crust was very inconsistent, some parts were crispy and some weren’t. Asked for a medium and got a medium well. Very disappointed considering the price tag. Server did not mention that there was a 20% pre charged tip on the bill.

    Such a great restaurant on Newbury! The decor and atmosphere inside is so aesthetic. My boyfriend got the steak frites which was great, and for my vegetarian self I got 3 small plates of vegetables and they were all amazing! Only thing is that I wish they had a cocktail menu, but the wine I ended up getting was delicious (chilled red special)! We’ll definitely be back.

    we were stuck upstairs which was kind of out of the way. Service was very attentive, and it was much quieter, but in retrospect might have been a bit more fun if we had asked for a table downstairs.

    The food was extremely mediocre and overpriced for what it was. The inside and very small and they didn't indicate that my reservation would be at the bar. If I had known that I would not have requested to sit inside. The service was fine, not exceptional. Would not come back here again, many much better restaurants in Boston. Also, they said it was French-inspired, but I it seemed more American.

    My wife and I had dinner last night on an outside table. The food was outstanding. I had the striped bass and my wife (who is a vegetarian) greatly enjoyed her meal - which consisted of two of the restaurant’s vegetable plates. The excellent by the glass wine selection was all US wines, although both US and French wines were available by the bottle. Finally, we split a nice chocolate torte for desert. Service was friendly, helpful and professional. We will be back.

    My friends and I were excited to try Grand Tour as we recently visited their sister restaurant, Select Oyster and were impressed all around. We let the waiter know of our food allergies and he mentioned they take allergies serious, which is always nice to hear. My friend is allergic to mint and I have a severe allergy to tree nuts and sesame seeds. We ordered apps, and one the the apps had mint and we asked for this to be taken off. When the waiter dropped off our apps, it was obvious that the mint was still there.. I get it people make mistakes, but mint is hard to overlook from the chef to the waiter someone should have noticed before we did. We let the waiter know and he came back with a new plate. For my entree I wanted the Lamb and when it came out it has a white sauce that we were unfamiliar with, he said it was tahini and walked away, we googled it and tahini is made from toasted ground sesame, something the chef should have caught.. Needless to say they do NOT take their allergies seriously. I understand that restaurants are short staffed and we were super patient, but when it comes to allergies this place needs to do a better job. The chef did come out and apologize and brought a lamb with no tahini. The kicker at the end of the meal was the waiter letting us know that a 20% gratuity charge was automatically added. We had a table for 4 people and they messed the order up multiple times and didn’t take anything off.. I know times are tough and we planned on giving a tip regardless but surely not for 20%.

    Terrific food, service, and ambiance. Group of 6 originally planned outside but swiftly moved inside upstairs because of the rain. Hard working and attentive staff (Candace and Michael), seemingly always there at the right moment, without interrupting. Truly good food and great advice about accompanying wines.

    We had an amazing experience doing the “date night” dinner prix fixe and enjoyed every bit. The bavette steak was perfectly cooked and delicious, and we could not get enough of the bok choy- still crunchy with the perfect dipping side sauce. Evan was our server and he was delightful, attentive but not too much, friendly, and absolutely the perfect guy.

    We had such a nice experience at the Grand Tour. The wait staff were very friendly, attentive and provided great advice on what to try. The food was fresh and delicious. We tried the cucumber carpaccio and the bass crudo. The vegetables (corn and tomatoes) were absolutely the surprise of the evening; well seasoned and very fresh. Even the dessert (chocolate pot de crème) was great. We will definitely be back with our service animal, who was very well cared for as well.
