We went to Chiara the evening after Thanksgiving with family. We had been there two years ago and really liked it. If anything, this local favorite has gotten even better! Everyone in our party loved the food. I had a wonderful salad made of beets and a superb pork chop on a bed of risotto. Others had oysters, which they... More

Was expecting bona fide steak fries with my meal, but the second-cousin of the McDonald's Fry Family was served. Downhill from there. I expected more from what appears a fine i timate establishment in a neighborhood.

Chiara is my go to restaurant outside Boston proper. The food is wonderful and everyone working there is very nice. My favorite are the fries that come with the hamburger, but all is delicious. My daughter asked for a vegetarian dish and said to surprise her. The best she had in years she said.

Had been here before and left feeling it was really good. This time the feeling was not there. First the server did not introduce himself and we order appetizers and a bottle of wine while deciding on our entrees. The apps were very tasty, however our small bowl of spread for the bread was empty when the apps were served... More

Very nice restaurant, location, and ambiance. The food is very, very good, but certainly what you would expect at these prices. The calamari was great, as are the salads. The scallops and chicken were also two great dishes. Not 5 stars because this is exactly the food quality you would expect at these prices, no better, no worse.

I like this place but the menu is very limiting. It has good appetizers and drinks. We like to sit at the bar. They have a nice lounge area too which is great for groups. The dinners are good but it is a very small menu. It is close to our house so this is a appetizer and drink stop... More

Friends and family frequent Chiara and it always feels like a special occasion for me. I frequently dine at the bar due to the friendly neighborhood vibe. The menu changes but consistently maintains the best choices. Seasonal choices - such as the stuffed figs, lolli chops and scallops are always a welcome sight. Wine selection is excellent - frequent wine... More

I must've passed by Chiara Bistro at least a thousand times, but I never paid that much attention to it. This is a Kitchen Dining Room Combo, you can actually watch the chefs prepare your dinner. It is very clean & professional team. Knowledgeable of the menu items & friendly wait staffs provide good recommendations. My dinner; > Very fresh... More

Great food, nice to eat in the bar area. Friendly and professional staff. They have a great private dining room for 10-12 people which we have used on multiple occasions.

Chiara Bistro in Westwood center, is a gem of a restaurant that attracts couples and families, as well as singles and wine experts. The French-American menu never disappoints. Seasonal specials are worth following. The wine selection is outstanding, and management intentionally keeps the mark-up low; as a result there are exceptional values. It can get a bit noisy when the... More
