There are restaurants to go in Boston for your average night out on the town, but there are only a few that stand out for a power dinner – impressive places to go to seal a business deal. Here are our picks for the Top 5 restaurants in Boston for a power dinner where reservations are recommended.


1 The Palm

The Palm Boston is known for its serious steaks and attentive wait staff in the Financial District so it is no wonder they recently introduced a special Power Dinner menu here. The three-course menu is available nightly here. Reserve a table in the main dining room with beautiful cathedral ceilings and caricature-lined walls of Boston’s most famous faces or on the outside patio overlooking the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Start off with a choice of beer steamed Prince Edward Island mussels, a classic Caesar, mixed green or shredded kale salad before moving onto veal Malfata, jumbo lump crab cakes or pan seared Atlantic salmon. Our favorite entrée is the juicy nine ounce filet mignon topped with Nova Scotia lobster Oscar (butter poached lobster in a rich béarnaise sauce) served with a side of fresh asparagus. Finish off the three-course dinner with a tasting of delicious salted caramel vanilla crunch cake or decadent flourless chocolate cake with raspberry sauce. If you choose to dine off the regular menu, the bone-in filet with a side of three-cheese au gratin and mussels will surely seal the deal.

2 The Bristol

If you want to make a lasting impression on your guests, book a reservation at The Bristol located at the Four Seasons. The restaurant overlooks the beautiful Public Garden and is one of the hottest scenes in Boston for a business dinner. Start off with a stiff martini from The Bristol Bar and indulge in a 45-day dry aged Bristol cut steak, seared lemon sole, truffle Wagyu beef meatballs or roasted half chicken. The signature favorite here is the Bristol burger topped with house made pickles, aged cheddar served on a brioche roll with side of golden truffle parmesan fries.

3 Mooo Restaurant

Nothing says powerful more than Beacon Hill and Mooo Restaurant does it best here. Reserve the private Wine Cellar for up to 50 guests on the lower level of the restaurant and order up a bottle from one of 325 available here. Located inside the XV Beacon Hotel, Mooo offers a menu that includes notable selections like the grand seafood platter, roasted beef marrow bones and Israeli Osetra caviar. The six-ounce Japanese A5 Wagyu sirloin is one of the city’s most impressive offerings.

Dining at Bar Boulud is a memorable experience in itself with its French fare that includes olive oil confit rabbit, large boards of charcuterie, coq au vin and spring lamb trio. Located inside the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Chef Daniel Boulud’s signature restaurant features a wine list with rare finds and one of the best selections of champagne to toast that newly inked deal.

Here, the business crowd sips on highballs and starts off with duck liver mousse, veal sweetbreads and steak tartare.
