Tivolis Bistro

We ran across this browsing the web for new and interesting restaurants in the area to try. This review was quite positive, so we decided to give it a try.

The restaurant is in an unremarkable section of Malden. This particular evening, they weren't especially busy, but they told us that usually reservations are required. I tend to like French food so, nearly everything on the menu was appealing.

We each got an appetizer and an entree and shared a dessert. The squash soup was very good. The Alsatian torte was good, though a bit milder than my preference. For dinner, as is my tendency, I got the filet and my wife got the Orecchiette and Chicken. The filet was quite good and the glaze was outstanding. The Orecchiette and Chicken was also very good. As mentioned in the above-cited review, the portions were remarkably large. The filet was easily 16 ounces, and the Chicken was a very generous portion. For dessert, we got a piece of the flourless Belgian Chocolate Cake, which was outstanding.

Overall, definitely recommended and worth trying again.
