I'm taking my husband on a suprise 24 hr break at the Charles Hotel in Harvard Square the Sunday after Valentine's Day. We live an hour outside of Boston and do go into have a nice meal upon occasion. We love Chez Henri's food and I'm a big fan of their drinks, but I'd like to try something different. We've never been to Rialto. I had one incredible wine dinner in the Sioree Room and an OK dinner at the Monday Club Bar at Upstairs. I'd be willing to give the Sioree Room another try. Ideally I would like to keep it within walking distance of Harvard Square. I'd like to go someplace with great food, a perfect drink, and service that is willing to cater to my every whim. (Instead of me catering to the food whims of our two year old, who is being left behind!)
If the service at Rialto is half as good as the wonderful reservation person I just spoke to at the Charles I'd say that is the place. I was thinking of Finale for dessert, but looking at some past posts that seems to be overating, so I'm probably not. Thanks in advance.
