We went for a Chef's tasting menu. What a gem! (Note - we wouldn't have ever heard of the place if not for the Groupon a friend purchased for 6 ppl). We booked our dinner approximately 2 months in advance, because we wanted a Saturday night, otherwise we could have gotten in sooner. They have off-street parking (a Godsend for... More

After wending our way through Cambridge with the help of Waze and parking in the restaurant lot we were welcomed and had a lovely glass of wine while waiting for friends. We had a comfortable (and quiet) spot next to the window. All four of us had the flounder which was the best I've ever had. The service was perfect-... More

Our first time here. Is a large space with large plate glass windows on a chilly evening and high ceilings. Was a bit cool when we arrived but did warm up as the evening went on. Service was helpful and prompt. Had cocktails to start which were excellent. My dining companion had the pear salad and then the gnocci; both... More

I don't know where to begin frankly. We both ordered the lamb and yit was served nearly raw. Luckily we sent it back and received better meals. The very crusty bread is delivered one tiny slice at a time and you must flag down a waitperson to beseech them for additional bread, sir? The manager came over to tell us... More

The seven course tasting menu is still a thing of culinary and gastronomic beauty and delight, and an honest value at $45 with Groupon, However, it doesn't seem to be worth the $75 or so per person that people pay without the Groupon deal. A couple of small critiques- (1.) there are other ways besides variations on the pork theme... More

Bergamot is a gem. I am a regular since a few years. But something is awry. I paid $14 for a bowl of soup that was basically 5 big spoonfulls. I paid $27 for a main dish served in a small bowl. The table next to me was enjoying the 7-course prix-fixe and had the same size. Not good, my... More

We did the 7-course tasting menu. The cost was outrageous for the amount of food offered. The pasta course had mainly one ravioli, the fish course was mainly one scallop. Granted, the food was well prepared and we did not expect Big Macs at a tasting, but we did expect to get the equivalent of a solid meal for $75... More

Quiet street a 5 minute walk from the north side of the Harvard campus, homey atmosphere, interesting menu, sort of northern Italian, yuppie American, with an interesting wine list. We enjoyed the creative small plates, had two each instead of a main, and it was all wonderful. Some incredible cheeses for dessert, also. Away from the hustle bustle of Cambridge... More
