Since it's opening three years ago, Mantra has been thrilling diners with its ground-breaking French-Indian cuisine. The critics have also taken notice of MANTRA’s avant garde decor, seamless service, lively bar scene and unique upscale menu.

MANTRA has been lauded in publications as varied as In Style and Architecture Read Reviews and its food is rated three-and-a-half out of four stars in both the Boston Globe and Boston Herald.

The food at MANTRA is a sophisticated blend of French flavors and techniques, emboldened by subtle Indian 'accents,' yet the ingredient list is based on New England fish, seafood, poultry, meats and produce.

The atmosphere combines the stateliness of a large turn-of-the-century former bank building with the modernism of laser-cut steel mirrors, chainmail drapery, leatherette upholstery, and a 30' woven wood structure affectionately called The Hookah Den. It's a 10-person den with red suede banquettes for enjoying cocktails before or after your meal.

MANTRA is located in The Ladder District, Boston's hottest new neighborhood, close to The Ritz-Carlton Boston Common, Sports Club L.A., the fabulously refurbished Opera House, and other more casual restaurants and clubs. Park with their valet or at any of several nearby garages.

All major credit cards accepted.


  • This used to be an old bank which makes for some really cool interior design. The bar used to be the teller stations, and downstairs by the restrooms you can see the giant old money vault.
