Really nice surprise for me
Really nice surprise for me after all these years living in the Boston area originally from NY and having traveled to Ireland and the UK..nice environment--almost like being there except for the Boston accent...good dining place!

The brunch selection was solid
The brunch selection was solid and nearly Mother's Day special was intriguing. Initially the waitress was gracious and thoughtful. When we considered asking her to pour coffee for my tardy father, she suggested waiting until he arrived, to make sure it was warm. However, she disappeared for the longest time after we got our food until we were done eating. Besides expecting the typical "How is everything" check-up, my father's granola didn't come with spoon (first world problems), so he felt necessary to wait and ask for one. The opportunity didn't come easily until the end of the meal.
Otherwise, pleasant ambiance, tasty, well-plated food and amiable service for the price.

Mother's Day Brunch
Great food, service and atmosphere for a Mother's Day Brunch. My children enjoyed the food and the menu offered several choices for our varying tastes. Out server was attentive and efficient. It was a great experience.

Love that beet salad!
Delicious food, well presented, great variety, including choices for those watching their weight. The portion size is generous and the beet salad is my go-to meal. The restaurant seems to be thriving. Need reservations to insure you get in.

A fun choice
Went here to celebrate a graduation. We were seated right away. Staff was friendly and attentive. Food was good pub grub and was served on a timely basis even though the restaurant was very busy. Bar was packed. Would definitely return for fun atmosphere. Only downside was food was slightly overpriced for what you got.

AMAZING truffle fries!!!
I'm English, and I have to say - their fish and chips BEAT the original hands down!! But that's only if you make sure to order them with the rosemary truffle fries instead of the ordinary ones - because these fries are quite extraordinary. (I should mention, you don't pay extra.) It's an amazing mixture of sweet truffle oil and fragrant rosemary - just heavenly. We keep coming back and we don't even have to look at the menu when we do - it's the fish and chips every time!

We've eaten at Grafton Street many times and have never been disappointed in what we ordered. The food is consistently good and the service is friendly and when you need it! We highly recommend it and will continue to go back.

All around treat
Great menu- plenty of choices, and our party of four tried quite a few! All delicious and so generous we left with doggy bags. We will be back next time we are in town.

The main courses ranged in
The main courses ranged in quality from okay to very good, but the appetizers were all delicious. We ordered three for our party of nine to share. This was the right amount – the appetizers are large and filling.

Harvard graduation celebration
We were very impressed with the service and quality of food on such a busy night. The dinner at Grafton Street Pub and Grill added to our perfect day. We will return to this restaurant and highly recommend it.

Great Harvard Square location
If you are going to the Oberon this is the place for you.

Lovely spot for a special
Lovely spot for a special dinner with family and friends. Appreciate parking area at church. Carrot soup, oysters, mussels, salmon and pizza all great. Wait staff was very knowledgeable and attentive.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went here for brunch on Saturday. Food was great, although the poached eggs were a little overcooked. Service was prompt. I would definitely go back
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a very nice dinner
It was a very nice dinner with a couple of friends. I had the chicken breast and my friends had the steak. I think both were very good. Wine list is a bit weird to figure out, but overall a great restaurant option.
6/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were three seniors from Cape Cod with a Harvard guest, so location and ease of making reservations drew us. But the very good, nicely presented, timely and VERY good service will draw us back.
6/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have been dying to try out this spot for a while! The red sangria was amazing! We ordered the scallops and the lobster mac and cheese. The scallops were probably the best I have ever had. The lobster mac and cheese was pretty good but very very heavy on the truffle oil which was overwhelming at times. We finished dinner off with the chai creme brulee which was very unique and yummy! I would recommend this place to others and will be definitely returning in the future! Also our waiter was fantastic!

Comfortable room with a varied and successful menu; nice mix of interesting beers and good basic range of wine; very consistent as a place to go for dinner; room is loud enough to feel alive but quiet enough to be able to talk over dinner

Would definitely return
This was our first visit to Grafton Street Pub. We were there early on Friday. Several diners were taking advantage of the nice night and eating outside. Inside the noise level was relatively quiet but it started to pick up as the evening progressed. We started with the hummus plate appetizer. The hummus was fresh and tasty. The pita warm. The olives too salty. But overall a very good app. Our entrees were also very good. I had the pan roasted chicken breast. It was tender and nicely balanced with the cheddar polenta & smoked bacon. My husband had the seared day boat scallops which he said was also quite good. Because we filled up on the appetizer, we couldn't finish our entrees & passed on dessert. Would definitely return.

We brought our family here for dinner before heading to a game. Neat atmosphere,
Interesting and yummy menu and drink options. Friendly & efficient service. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

Bachelorette Dinner here
We had my bachelorette dinner here and although I suggested this place, I was actually at a loss when it came to choosing dinner. I don't like anything curry and it seemed to be everywhere surprisingly. I ended up getting the burger, and it was great. The service was great, we were 7 people at a table, but everything flowed nicely.

Good food, great service
This is the second time I went to Grafton St. Pub. The first time was not a good experience, table in back, food not very good, not great service. This time, we sat in the front. I ordered a beet salad. It was great; I brought half of it home and enjoyed it the next day. I ordered the Margarita pizza. It was delicious with a home made taste. I had a citrus cocktail, great. Our waiter was excellent. We will definitely go back. Thanks

Great Dinner Spot!
I have been coming to Grafton Street for lunch for years - always loved it. Finally got in for dinner - loved it even more. We sat at an outdoor table on the sidewalk - a trifle noisy, but otherwise excellent. Our server was spectacular, although we did wait a fair amount of time between drink rounds - not sure if the bar was slow in producing the drinks, or the server was slow in moving them out to us... Fish and chips were great, very large portion, not overly greasy, served with malt vinegar. Lobster mac and cheese was another hit and was also very generously served. Overall a great experience - highly recommend Grafton Street for an evening out!
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Their smoked pork is incredible. As are their cheesy grits. What a find!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great ambiance and food
Great gastropub in Cambridge near Harvard square. Entrees (New England Bouillabaisse and Sweet Potato Ravioli) were excellent. Would have been great service as our waiter was very friendly, but forgot about us for about 30 minutes after we finished the main course. Overall a very nice place and would visit agai .

Creative and tasty menu
Some good thought put into preparation and presentation. Good value too. Grafton was a very pleasant surprise. Definitely recommended.

Their specialty Manhattan is not to be missed - smoothest Manhattan I've ever had

Good food fun atmosphere
Service was great, drinks slightly expensive but otherwise reasonable.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was done right. We were in a hurry to get to a movie and the fast service by our waiter kept us on time.
I'll definitely return and hopefully be able to stay longer!
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went with my family for my birthday and we had a lot of fun. The atmosphere is great, the food was yummy, and the waitress was super sweet and helpful. I will definitely be back!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
great outdoor dining
in harvard square but not too much traffic. much better food than the other locations owned by this group. a perfect casual destination for an early fall dinner.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
very attentive service
A vegetarian and a person with food allergies aren't the easiest twosome on a busy Saturday night but Grafton handled us well and with very attentive service. Good glass of Malbec too!

My RR (restaurant review) is my first experience with Open Table. Also, this was my first opportunity to dine at Grafton St. Both are excellent and professional.

Great Food...Great Service
My favorite local spot is Grafton Street. I enjoy dining at the bar or at a table, but either way it's a win-win situation. You will experience amazing service from the host/hostess and the bartenders to the waitstaff. They are friendly and attentive. My favorites are the Grafton burger and the brussel sprouts and bacon pizza.

Great place for dinner in Cambridge
Grafton Street Pub and Grill is a nice break from some of the very tiny, oddball restaurants Cambridge is know for. A bit more spacious it has a very pleasant ambiance. The service was friendly, attentive and efficient. The food was also very good. My daughter and I both had the scallops which were cooked perfectly. The menu had a nice selection of entrees as well as less expensive sandwiches for dinner. I would highly recommend the Grafton Street Pub and Grill.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
its so much fun-always
Grafton Street Pub never disappoints, never lets you down, always consistent and always a good time! And what's better than that?
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Evening Out
The Grafton Street Pub was great for our small reunion of friends and family. The food was excellent and service was attentive. We were very happy with the choice.

After theatre matinee
The food entrees were all delicious and reasonably priced. Great flavor on the chicken dish and Ravilois. The outdoor dining looked like it would have been nice if the weather was a little warmer
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
8 of us were celebrating my daughter's 19th birthday, and it was exactly what we had hoped - a table off to the side for semi-privacy, excellent food, good service, and the ability to bring our homemade cake as requested by the birthday girl. Aside from a $2 each for cutting and serving the cake, it was perfect. I was told there would be a $2 charge, but didn't realize it was per person. No big deal, because everything else was delightful!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed our meal very much!
My daughter and I shared the cheese plate appetizer and the scallops with wheat berries and cauliflower dinner.
Both were delicious!
We wiped the plates clean!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved this place
We went here for dinner for my friends bachelorette party and we were so happy we made the decision to go! The service was outstanding as was the food! Especially the mushrooms pizza and the sangria! I can't wait to go again
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food and nice group environmen
Grafton is a great place for brunches or meals with groups or late night bar fun!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely lunch with friends
I needed a place I could take some out of town friends for lunch recently, and remembered that folks are always saying how nice this place is. It didn't disappoint. It was easy to find for the out-of-towners, friendly and welcoming from door to table, and the food was great. Service was pretty spectacular, too. I'd definitely return.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was delicious, portions generous, prices reasonable, and service outstanding.

Special family dinner
My husband announced his retirement at his school. Immediately after the announcement I wisked him away for an overnight at the Charles Hotel I was looking for a nearby restaurant to have our adult children meet us for dinner. Everything was perfect. A memorable night for our family.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were a party of 8 and were seated at a round table, this was the perfect set up for all to speak to one another. Our waitress was extremely efficient, helpful and friendly. The food was very good, although I thought the portions were a tad large and I am a big eater! Free parking was available. Very enjoyable evening.

Graftion Street Dining
The menu has something for everyone and the portions are generous. I had the short rib beef stew. The meat was extremely tender. The rosemary truffled frites were tasty and crisp. My dining partner had the pork porterhouse with roasted brussles sprouts and sweet potatoes with blue cheese. Only get this if you're really hungry or want a doggy bag to take home. If beer is your drink you'll like the number of choices both on tap and in bottles.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great spot to start the weekend!
I discovered Grafton's just the week before and so enjoyed both the delicious Grafton burger with rosemary tries in truffle oil and my glass of Malbec that I returned 2 days later with my mom and re-ordered the same meal!
It was just as delicious as the first time and my mother really enjoyed her crab cakes.

Great thanksgiving lunch
Had Thanksgiving lunch and the food was first rate. Wonderful flavors for both traditional dishes and special ones like Brussels sprouts. Highly recommend this place.

Great place. Across the street from Harvard. Great view and great food.
