Mother's Day BrunchI had read plenty of negative reviews and I am happy to report we had a wonderful experience. We ended up arriving 15 minutes late due to traffic and our booth was held, with the hostess and waitress very welcoming. The drinks and food were great. We were impressed with the layout and the 4 piece jazz band played great standards and were very energetic. If I had one critique it would be that the band should turn down the amplifier's a notch or two as they should compliment the setting, not override it.
That said, I look forward to returning to First Printer and try them for either lunch or dinner.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the Melt Burger ...... on toasted rye. Perfect and I do not say this often or lightly. The shallot jam was wonderful.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Printer is definitelyFirst Printer is definitely one of the best places in Harvard Square. We are obsessed with the Sunday jazz brunch! The black and blue (berries) parfait is so simple but really delicious, refreshing, and surprisingly filling. My fiancé had the bourbon fresh toast the first time we tried the brunch and he swears it is he best he has ever had and will not order anything else. We have also had lunch and dinner there quite a few times and you just can't go wrong! Everything is good, the cocktails are delicious, the staff is very friendly, the owner is visible and hands-on, and it is overall just a lovely little place that we will continue to enjoy!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAccommodated our request toAccommodated our request to sit at a table in the former bank vault and prepped a specially plated dessert for our birthday guest. (Only downside to sitting in the vault is that it gets warm before long.)
As usual, good dinner and cocktail selections, with the scallops as a creamy highlight.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI went for brunch and reallyI went for brunch and really enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service.

The food was great as was the music, but the music was so loud that we were unable to talk during lunch.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for holidays!We decided to eat out on Easter rather than following the family tradition of cooking at home. Brunch and music at First Printer were awesome. We had a great meal and enjoyed the entertainment. What made it especially fun was all the other folks there having as good a time as we were.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI made reservations at FirstI made reservations at First Printer because I'm a former newspaper journalist, love history, and was on a weekend visit to the Harvard Square area. Before making my decision, I read numerous online reviews, most either very good or very bad, with the latter often noting "terrible" service. I decided to find out for myself and was not at all disappointed. In fact, I considered First Printer an excellent choice. Their mixed drink menu was fun and potent, the meals were not sensational but were very satisfying,the prices were reasonable for the location, and the host and wait staff were exceedingly pleasant and responsive. My date and I enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and left with not a single complaint.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great, service wasFood was great, service was excellent. A really nice restaurant with a great atmosphere. I would go back and bring friends. A good place to bring out of town bests. Menu was a little limited and heavy on the seafood, especially shellfish, but what we ordered was very tasty. We didn't leave hungry.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
