Diner Reviews
  • "We have enjoyed the Tuesday night wine pairing dinners at this restaurant several times and have had a great experience every time. Good food, great wine selection and efficient and friendly service. Very high standards for such a small restaurant! The little touches, such as an amuse bouche to start, the great bread, the apres dessert are all lovely. Wish there were more places like this around."

  • "I've been wanting to check out TW for a few years now. Finally made it last Saturday night and was excited as I knew the seasonal menu would be in full swing. I went with the three course menu with wine pairing. Ordered the summer veggie johnnycake app (meh, but that was a misorder on behalf) and the squid ink pasta main course. I had high hopes and this dish didn't hold a flame to a similar dish at Coppa. The dessert was the best part and I'm not even a dessert person. I had some chocolate dish with olive oil and sea salt. The strawberry shortcake was bad. The service was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the wine list. The bill was about what I thought it would be for two people (200.00) but the food just wasn't where it needed to be"

  • "We went for the Tuesday Wine Series. What can we say? I love the cucumber soup: very delicate, very subtle with a strong tasting mussels to contrast it. One of the entree was the confit de canard. Confit de Canard is originally from the Southwest of France. This confit is reminiscent of German charcuterie. It was almost purged of the excess fat that ducks come with. We do note that the haricots that accompanied the duck were slightly unimaginative. The cheese was a brebis rousse d'argental; it went well with its bread. A nice change from French-like breads. Dessert fabulous as always."

  • "I highly recommend the Tuesday night wine series at T.W. Food. Excellent food and wine and a great value for a high-end meal. I'm sure the rest of the menu is great as well. Ingredients were fresh and well prepared and portions were more generous than you'd expect in a multi-course prix-fixe situation. The service was attentive, professional, and friendly."

  • "We'd heard about TW Food, but not yet been. Cousins from out of town joined us; they are much more "foodies" than we are. And they were favorably impressed."

  • "We tremendously enjoy dinner at TW Food - we went on Tuesday for their Wine Series - Washington State, which featured some delicious interesting wines. Everything was paired perfectly - even things where we were skeptical on reading the menu blew us away. The pork shoulder entree was the star of the evening - the cornbread and greens that went with it were amazing on their own, but everything together was really top-notch. I really can't say enough great things about TW Food - if we lived in West Cambridge, I think we'd eat there every day!"

  • "On our first visit, my wife and I decided to try the tasting menu. She had the vegetarian version, while I had the version that included meat. Overall, we both found the food delicious and refined, though we agreed that the vegetarian menu seemed less creative and ultimately less satisfying. We also felt that the tasting menu was too expensive for what was delivered. We have been more impressed by the value at other Cambridge restaurants that offer similar menus (e.g., Craigie on Main and, recently, Oleana). We may return, as the service was great and the food was tasty, but we'll likely order from the prix fixe menu rather than the tasting menu."

  • "Tucked in an out of the way neighborhood a mile from Harvard Square, TW Food seems like a hidden gem. The six course tasting menu was outstanding. Standouts: cream of arugula soup with smoked rabbit and escargot; scallop ceviche. And our favorite, Lambrusco, on the wine list. Great place to celebrate a big birthday."

  • "This is a very lovely restaurant. Splurge on the foie gras creme brulee and take it light for the rest of the meal. Superb!"

  • "Did the Tuesday wine series for rose. Food overall was very good. Portions were on the small side, but this is to be expected as it is a 4 course deal if you will. Best course by far was the eggplant. Beautiful prep and the heartiest dish. Far more satisfying than my dining companion's white bass. Weakest point was dessert, but I may be biased as I'm not really a dessert lover. I would also say that this was the largest portioned course, which again, isn't surprising since desserts are the least costly items to serve. As for the wines, they were pleasant and well paired with the food. The final off-dry rose was almost sherry like and the most interesting. "

  • "We did the prix fixe menu, and though not our motivation for coming to TW Food, it was a great value. I would have paid double for the meal we received. Lots of interesting flavor combinations, very creative without being too intimidating. Wait staff was exceedingly kind and gracious. I'm already looking forward to going back. "

  • "Always excellent wines and excellent food on Tuesday night themed wine dinners. This week's theme was Alsace, with a Riesling, a Pinot Noir, a Pinot Gris, and a Gewurtztraminer, and food to match. The Coq au Vin made with white wine instead of red was exceptional, and actually paired well with the Pinot Noir. A spicy wurst with red cabbage was a good match for the Riesling. Cheese, fruit, and toast came with the Gris and fruit sorbets complemented the aromatic Gewutz. With just over two dozen seats, reserve in advance to be sure to get in."

  • "T.W. Food has always belonged among the elite of the area, maintaining an impressively high batting-average for some years now. Our most recent Grand Tasting Menu showed it at absolute top form: from soup to dessert each dish imaginatively conceived and perfectly executed (OK, for my taste the beef could have been a bit rarer, but who's worrying?), accompanied by cannily chosen wines. Tim Wiechmann's food tastes like no one else's: it's subtle, still very European in orientation (plates much sparer than usual in the States!), clear, and engaging the mind no less than the palette."

  • "Brought my parents and my boyfriend here for a Sunday morning jazz brunch, and the entire experience was fantastic. My parents are both avid seasonal eaters, and T.W. did not disappoint. They were very excited to see local features such as "Nettle Soup" and fiddle-heads cooked in with the pork confit and grits, not to mention the three-man jazz ensemble kept everyone very entertained! My boyfriend was also impressed, mentioning how he's driven past the restaurant almost everyday and never knew it existed! Although it's a bit pricey and definitely cozy, the simple decorations opens up the room a lot and makes you feel like you're in a Parisian cafe."

  • "What a fabulous place! TW Food (admittedly not a great name) is hands down one of the top 5 restaurants in the Boston area. How it hasn't been lauded as such is a mystery - I have been in the area for over 10 years and never heard of it despite searching for just this type of a small, intimate restaurant serving beautifully crafted food. Every dish was excellent and masterfully prepared. The wine list is a bit pricey and lean, but understandable for such a small place. The homemade bread was about the best you'll ever have - it's worth a visit by itself. The wait staff was extremely knowledeable and friendly, yet professional and not intrusive. Without question my new favorite and will look forward to many future visits."

Superlative food and service, good solid wines that go well with the food, small intimate dining experience. Kudos to Tim and Bronwyn. They've done something very special."

  • "We went for our anniversary and it was the right place to go. The food is excellent and interesting. The service is warm without been overly friendly and professional. Wonderful wine list---not too expensive--with some very good choices. Wonderful Cambridge restaurant."

  • "T.W. Foods is a small, unpretentious restaurant from the outside, tucked in a small neighborhood street in Cambridge. But inside it is small, chic and prettily decorated. One wall is brick, reminiscent of New York bistros of the 80s, the tables have white cloths and delicately arranged small floral arrangements. The food is sourced from local producers, is organic, and exceptionally well prepared. This is not inexpensive good, but among the best your palate will experience. And the coffee is the best I've had anywhere. Definitely the place to take visitors to Boston or for that romantic occasion. Oh yes, and Sunday brunches have jazz."
