paralyzed by conflicting reports

It happens a lot: I'm looking for a good place to... and read through the posts until I think I've settled on one or two options, and then I keep reading and realize they've both been panned by reviewers I like, and I end up spending hours on the board weighing the odds. Now for example. I'm trying to figure out where to go for one night in Boston (this Friday). I was sure it was between Clio and Radius but have since been scared off by warnings of chronic disappointment in Boston high-end places (I've experienced this in the past myself at Rialto, for example, but remember liking Hamersley's once upon a time). I get to New York and Chicago enough that I don't feel the need to spend a load of money for ok food. I do want a good meal. I was interested in Frances's post seeking a 'superb bistro' for $50 per person but Chez Henri and Sandrine are both in Cambridge. I'll be staying downtown at the Swissotel this time and while I don't mind getting out I'd kind of like to do something in Boston. So I'm looking for what we're all looking for: the best price-overall satisfaction ratio I can find. Any ideas?
