Tasting Counter

Ticket Policy

  conditions

    All sales are final. Tickets are non-refundable. Date and time changes are not permitted. However, it is possible to transfer your ticket(s) to another individual. The guest who originally purchased the ticket(s) must notify Tasting Counter of this transfer by emailing eatwell@tastingcounter.com or calling (617) 299-6362.

    All-inclusive prepaid tickets and online guest profiles allow your dining experience to begin on our website. We are ready to cook for you from the moment you enter our restaurant. Then, at the conclusion of your meal, simply walk out the door. A dining ticket completely removes the financial transaction from the dining experience. Instead of reservations, all-inclusive tickets through our website are for set times, similar to going to a concert or show.

    Dinner seatings are timed events. We request guests arrive a few minutes before their ticket time in order to maximize the dining experience. Guests should plan their arrival ahead of time by reviewing our transit options, driving directions, and parking information. We make every effort to accommodate guests experiencing unforeseen circumstances, however, we are only able to serve the full menu if guests are less than 10 minutes late. In order to maintain the dining experience for all seated guests, anyone arriving over 10 minutes late will be served the course currently being prepared.

  health and safety

    Our top priority is keeping our guests and staff safe and healthy during your dining experience with us. Following new guidance from the CDC and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, face coverings are no longer required for fully vaccinated guests. We are operating on an honor system and trust that unvaccinated guests will continue to wear face coverings when not actively eating and drinking.

    Our entire staff is fully vaccinated and will be maintaining mask wearing at all times during your dining experience with us.

  dietary restrictions & allergies

    When purchasing your ticket, you have the opportunity to share any dietary restrictions. We are happy to accommodate nearly any diet, such as pescetarian (seafood only without any meat), vegetarian (includes eggs and dairy), and vegan (no animal products whatsoever).

    We are also happy to accommodate all allergies, which simply need to be stated in your "dietary preferences" when signing up. Such allergies may include (but are not limited to) avoiding nuts, lactose, shellfish, finfish, and gluten. However, we may do gluten-free only if you have a sensitivity to gluten, since we work with flour in our kitchen and unfortunately cannot guarantee a menu for a guest with celiac disease.

    Most importantly, we know you are dining with us because you are an adventurous diner who is open to anything we serve you, in accordance with your dietary specifications. You will also be requested to select your beverage pairing of wine, beer, sake, or handcrafted non-alcoholic drinks. Please note that we are unable to accommodate any last-minute beverage pairing changes.
