Good, Quiet Restaurant in Back Bay?

Ann G. Jan 16, 2013 03:39 PM

Hello All:

I am searching for a quiet restaurant with good food for a business meeting for two, mid-week.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

    Lunch? Dinner ? Cuisine?

      Da Vinci would definitely be a quiet spot for this

        DaVinci's food unfortunately seems to have dropped in quality...tried it a few months ago and we both agreed we'd no longer come again despite it being so close to us. We liked it a lot a few years ago.
        Olive oil at the start isn't as extra virgin, and I can't remember what other dishes we had that were just eh for the prices :-P

        For business meals, I can't believe no one has mentioned Sorellina yet...it's a good writeoff place ;-)
        There's also Douzo for sushi.

        Sel De la Terre on Boylston Street. It is also easy for everyone to find, near the MBTA and has easy parking.
