are any Boston food writers to be trusted?

I am just wondering if I am overlooking a local publication that actually has a critic that understands restaruant reviewing. Many times in the past I admit that I have fallen victim to the review and rushed to the establishment only to find that I dined in a different place than the reviewer. I recently rushed to Meil at the new hotel downtown after reading a raving review in a local publication. To say the experience was fair might be too nice. I even tried the same dishes that gained printed acclaim only to once again find myself wondering if the writer had actually eaten there. This is one example of many a bad experience I have had following the hype of a new review. Who's opinion is to be trusted in the local media?
