Emilie it seems was sent from Heaven to serve us tonight. She gave us every single recommendation that was spot on an made our night heavenly. The best French experience we have had outside of France. Try the escargot, steak tartare, steak frite and mousse. It will blow you away.

This was a repeat visit, drawn by the foie gras, actually! The quality and creativity of the appetizers and entrees makes this a very interesting experience. I was not satisfied due to the lack of balance in the dishes' ingredients. The venison dish, though it had a generous portion of what struck me as similar to a dry-aged tenderloin, but the blueberry red wine sauce had bitter overtones and could have shown a more soft, umami take-away, offsetting the dryness of the medallions with a more tasty coating. The wine list, though limited, covers the bases well. Desserts were a bit too sweet and sticky, the pear tart would have been better served with a puff pastry, rather than the thick, grainy frangipane base. But, I like the staff, the ambiance, and I'll visit again, just be more careful in my selections. And, oh, by the way, the foie gras is definitely worth the visit!

The food is tasty, but not delicate enough considering the price. I wish the entrees and desserts can be finer in both looks and tastes.

We tried Ma Maison for our first time on the 15th (for Valentines), very romantic, the food was outstanding (and we are picky), and priced reasonably for a first class night out in Back Bay. Also the staff was very accommodating for a special request that I had to impress my date. Would absolutely recommend.

Cutest authentic French restaurant. Went for Valentine’s Day lunch & it was perfect. Escargot, tartare & duck were all prepared perfect. Prices are just right for what you get. One of my favorites in Boston.

My daughter and I had our birthday/valentines’s day breakfast there. Food was delicious and the service was very fast. Their special dessert for my daughter’s birthday celebration was an unexpected surprised and made her soooo happy. We loved it and will come back again.

The food was very well crafted! Definitely will be back! I found price; quantity ratio to be a little much for some, but I also think that the craft going into the food combats that! The waitress Emilie made for an amazing night, was very personable but popped in just enough to make sure we were well served! It was fun to try some new foods and she was happy to share her advice when asked for her favorites! The restaurant has plexi glass for social distancing and it honestly added a layer of privacy to the ambiance that was welcomed! Along with that, the restaurant itself felt cozy and intimate with a few tables; it felt lively and dim light and like a little Parisian night! Will definitely be visiting again!

This is a perfect restaurant in every way. I made it a point to stay overnight nearby in order to eat there when sweetbreads were the special. It was well worth it.

Ah-may-zing! (Amazing). We had a fantastic meal at Ma Maison for this week’s date night. Fondue was great, the classic French dishes (coq a vin, beef Bourgogne) and desserts (chocolate mousse and profiteroles) made the evening.

Food was excellent. However I found the waitstaff a little rude. I hadn’t chosen my order yet and we were a group and she insisted I order now and immediately while my friend was explaining her recommendations instead of just skipping ahead to the others who were ready. At the end we were taking one picture and she interrupted to tell us we must leave as they were closing. I suppose it was very difficult to wait even 20 seconds to tell us this? We inconvenienced her that much? She then came over and fixed the hood of my jacket which I thought was inappropriate touching of my clothes without asking first in light of covid risks. Overall it wasn’t very relaxing especially in light of a 20 percent gratuity is automatically included.

This was for me and my husband’s anniversary. They went above and beyond to make our evening special. Our waitress was fantastic and the food was amazing. They gave us complimentary champagne and dessert for our special night. They did everything right as far as keeping parties separate due to COVID and we felt like we were their top priority. We will definitely be back here again.

Anniversary, waitresses were very enthusiastic and friendly. They planned all accommodations on the house and made my anniversary the best. I really appreciate all that they’ve done extra without me planning anything. The desert and some dishes were on the house. It was an excellent pullout for trying French for the first time a memorable experience. No flaws, flawless.

Our Christmas at Ma Maison was absolutely perfect, from the seamless, gracious service to the absolutely wonderful food - and all in the midst of a pandemic, with partitions between the tables and a rainstorm outside!

I honestly don't know how they did it, but the entire experience was so so warm and lovely that I'll always remember it fondly as the wonderful end to a perfectly horrible year.
