If you are saving up for a special-occasion dinner, this is a splendid place to splurge. It’s got it all: A thoughtful menu with a variety of options that are consistently excellent, unwaveringly good service that isn’t stuffy, and traditional candlelit decor with a touch of fun. The restaurant’s open kitchen and penchant for welcome surprises bring a bit of drama to the experience. Back Bay Grill was honored with a AAA Four-Diamond Award in 2011.
