We were visiting our daughter who attends MIT and we hosted dinner with 3 of her friends. I made a reservation and we arrived on a Friday night at 7:30. It became more crowded as the night went on. There were lots of large tables...More

We were lucky to get a table for 2 quickly on a very busy weekend in Cambridge. Nice variety on the menu, reasonable prices and just-right portions. Had the salad with Cajun shrimp and fish/chips. Both delicious. Prompt, happy, friendly service. Thank you!

A bit off the path. We chose blindly and had a great meal. Carrot parsnips soup and a large salad with a crispy salmon filet and sesame dressing. All so fresh and healthy! The burger looked fantastic. Very nice polite waiters.

Great rooftop for summer nights or happy hour. The food os good but not incredible, go there more for a drink than for dinner. Service varies a lot depending if you are going with a group or not.

We like to go there to have drink on the rooftop. It's one of our favorite place in Cambridge for a drink.

We had a great lunch on the deck, nice beer, wonderful Chicken Sandwich. The staff were excellent. Great location and the overall experience was outstanding. I enjoyed a couple of pints in the downstairs bar with an outstanding bartender in Brian.

I just visited with a group of girlfriends, while in town for a Bachelorette party, and was pleased! We sat up on the rooftop, which was fun, as there aren’t a ton of rooftops in/around Cambridge/Boston to hang out. We LOVED the sangria and everyone...More

Had a very pleasant combination of drinks and dinner on the roof in the open air seating area. Service was nice but spotty. Be prepared to share tables with others. Food was good but the main highlight is the open air ambience.
