  1. Please see previous post. I'm looking forward to going back.

    1. I agree! The food at Lineage was excellent. I particularly recommend the scallop entree and tuna tartare app. Both divine. Service was fabulous too. I sat at the bar and fully enjoyed service (I think from Josh??) Anyway, check it out.

      1. I've been going there since it opened, just went back the other day -- IMHO it's one of the best restaurants in Boston. The oyster happy hour is brilliant!

          love to know what you think is great. i've been to dinner twice and thought it overpriced and physically rather uncomfortable though i loved the oyster happy hour (such good value). found the food good but not overwhelming so i'm curious as to what makes it "one of the best restaurants."

            I ate here on Friday to take advantage of their 50% wine discount. I found the food to be good, and the wine a great value, but the rest wasn't so good. The service was pretty bad, although our server did mention she just started a few weeks ago. At this price point, I would have expected more experience; she didn't know the wine list at all (and did not offer to get someone to help) and had a really bad habit of filling our wine glasses to be nearly full. (Less than 2 pours to empty the bottle, even after I cut her off from refilling mine after I had gotten it to only half full, which would have been considered a full glass anywhere else).

            Because I'm new to the area, and the food was good, we'll probably give it another shot.

              We went the other night for the first time and had a really lovely meal. For one I actually thought the prices extremely reasonable. Maybe that's because I'm used to Boston prices - many of the entrees were in the 20s and there was a prix fixe menu for $36 that looked great. I know of a lot of restaurants with this quality of food that will charge $36 just for the entree. We had the beet appetizer with goat cheese and grilled bread - the beets were sweet and perfectly cooked and drizzled with a goat cheese and placed on good bread and some butter lettuce. We also had a fig and blue cheese appetizer. Super honey sweet figs and blue cheese. It was simple and great! I had a scallop entree that had 3 huge scallops and buttery couscous and summer veg. I could hardly finish it, it was a lot of food, but I did finish it because it was so yummy. My DC had the steak and said it was great. We skipped dessert. Service was good - maybe a little overbearing but our server was new (maybe the same server as JoeM?) But overall I was impressed with the food and the restaurant.
