Steak was amazing!!!! Fries and side salad were just ok. Also no dessert!!! Probably a COVID problem, but we really wanted dessert.

No doubt some of the best food my fiance and I have had in Boston. She got the steak, I got the lamb, both exceeded our expectations. They have a great outdoor patio as well!

We had a terrific meal at Grand Tour. The food was quite good, but what truly stood out was the service - which was warm, friendly and attentive (without being overbearing).

The food impressed someone who isn't even a foodie. Servers were nice, although we didn't see much of ours after we ordered. Cool customers and great vibe.

Grand Tour is actually in hibernation and didn’t turn off their open table. We arrived to our reservation only to find an icy pathway and locked door. Happy Valentine’s Day 🤦🏻‍♀️

Booked a reservation, but the restaurant was closed. Per Google and open table they had reservations and their business hours noted they were open. I got to the restaurant only to find that they were closed, looks like for the season. No one called or sent an email to notify me, and it seems they are still accepting reservations and have not updated anything on their website. I even got an email from open table asking how my meal was.

GT was a great date spot - the food was delicious and the servers were lovely and gracious. We enjoyed the meal, pandemic and all. The only thing that could have been better was some greater separation between people on the sidewalk and our table, because unfortunately so many of them are not wearing masks.

Had a wonderful experience at grand tour! Absolutely love the atmosphere, location, and French theme! Having authentic French cuisine was an amazing experience. The vegetables were delicious, along with the flat bread and wine. Also the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, I would definitely recommend trying it!

Patio dining was pleasant and allowed proper spacing between tables. Indoor dining is also available. Food choices were creative and reflected a summer time theme. Ingredients are of a high quality and tasty. Be sure to try the Heirloom tomato salad and the fresh corn dish. No meal would be complete without having the steak frites. The beef is tender and cooked to perfection.
A wonderful selection of wines are available and the staff are able to assist in choosing the best wine to complement your food.
Service is top notch and efficient. They do a great job at adapting to outdoor dining.

Lovely food, interesting treatment of the artichokes, excellent carpaccio of jambon de Paris, carrots with duck confit was very pretty (seemed more like a Vietnamese treatment than French but no complaint implied), nice plump Maine mussels in a creme fraiche and wine based sauce, really good breads, all in all a really nice meal. Service was good humored and intelligent. We wished we could have seen more tables full - how will our restaurant community get through this with a 30% subscription level?

All four of us thought that dinner was good. Just not good enough to return. Fries w steak frite should be hot. All of ours were just a little warm. Had to send them back. Some of the preps on the side veggies were too creamy (French) for us. But perhaps that’s on us, not them.

Excellent appetizers and entrees. Disappointed by the lack of desserts and coffees. Good French inspiration, but it’s not French without a dessert. Love to see this part evolve.

Despite the space being small, it is well designed and uses the space to maximize the number of diners. Ambiance is modern, well lit and comfortable. Menu offers bites, appetizers and entrees no matter if you come in for lunch, after work, or dinner.
Food choices offer a variety of French inspired offerings. A must try is the steak frites. Service is well executed and staff are knowledgeable and helpful. Bottle selection of wines is terrific. Would like to see a more varied selection of red wines. Many of them were fruit driven, missing was a dry, full body wine that would pair well with the meat dishes .
Private dining room is available upstairs as well. This is a wonderful addition to the neighborhood.
