We had such a great experience!
The ambiance/interior is absolutely beautiful. There is nothing else like it in the city, especially Southie. You can tell so much thought and care went into every little detail. There is subtle and soothing music playing in the background. It feels like a place you could only find in Europe. I think it is exactly what Southie needs.
As far as the service goes, I thought it was excellent. Some previous reviews cite poor service, but I think that comes with the growing pains of opening a new restaurant. Plus, it takes more knowledge and experience recommending certain cheeses and wines than it does to recommend a burger and fries. We had a waitress who was knowledgeable about the cheese platter we ordered as well as wines to pair it with. And the owner, Tatyana, is so nice!
The menu was not too extensive (which I liked), but it seemed to have something for everyone. I’d recommend getting a bunch of plates to share. We got the jalapeno poppers, calamari, “Cheese Mongers Delight” cheese plate, shrimp scampi and hanger steak. Everything was prepared so well and was so good. I’m not exaggerating… the calamari was the best I’ve ever had! The hanger steak was also so good. It comes with lightly fried/shaved brussel sprouts and thin potato strips. I could go on forever about the food but take my word for it, every plate was delicious.
The beer/wine menu was also really well put together. Like the menu, it wasn’t overwhelming but there is something for everybody. Wines from different parts of the world. You can spend as much or as little as you want. I was happy to see such a great beer selection, too. If you prefer beer to wine, you have a really good selection here as well. I’m glad to know that for when I go back.
Overall, Fromage is a really great place to bring a date, family or friends. Its refreshing to have something like this in Southie!
