The cold winter months are officially upon us, but instead of hibernating, it’s time to get cozy up to some of the best fireplace restaurants in Boston. Here’s a look at five haute spots that are sure to warm you up this season.
Located at the corner of Commonwealth and Massachusetts Avenues, Deuxave features a French-inspired menu with indulgent starters like Israeli Golden Osetra Caviar and Alba White Truffles. Cozy up to the fireplace in the main dining room and order up the seasonal five-course tasting menu prepared by Executive Chef/Owner Christopher Coombs that can be paired up with wine, white truffles and foie gras for a dinner you won't soon forget.

2 Smith & Wollensky
It's not too late to think about hosting a private party in one of the cozy spaces at Smith & Wollensky's Back Bay Castle. Located on the second floor of this restaurant that is listed on the National Historic Register, the gorgeous rooms come complete with impressive ceilings, working fireplaces and historic artifacts that line the walls where you can dine on some of Boston's best steaks.

3 Post 390
You can see the winter warmup from the street and as soon as you enter Post 390, you will feel the warmth from the massive fireplace at this Back Bay restaurant. Grab a seat on the first floor for a casual bite or head upstairs where there is a second fireplace for a more formal dinner menu complete with seasonal dishes like lobster and chive ravioli, Brandt Farm sirloin and Berkshire pork and bourbon peaches.

4 Abe & Louie's
Nothing warms up your soul better than a juicy steak served right by the fire. That's what you will find at Abe & Louie's in Back Bay where steaks are taken almost as seriously as the service. Head here for the 24-ounce wood-fired, bone-in aged ribeye to celebrate the city's first snowfall.

5 The Fireplace Restaurant
It's just as cozy as it sounds in Brookline where The Fireplace heats up the winter nights. Cozy up with some butternut squash bisque, old school tater tots or a sampling of Maine crab cakes before enjoying some smoky maple barbecue beef ribs - the ultimate in comfort fare.
