Diner Reviews
  • "Zephyr is a well kept secret, good food with a spectacular view of the Charles. My BFF and I went one Sunday afternoon and enjoyed a quiet meal served by an attentive waiter. I had the fish and chips, fresh fish fried in a light, flavorful batter, accompanied by tasty fries and cole slaw a little light on the mayonnaise for my taste but probably preferred by most. For beverage I selected a Reisling that was surprisingly crisp yet slightly sweet -- delicious. My BFF had a salad large enough to divide in half and take home, topped with grilled shrimp. I'm not sure why the restaurant was half empty but it suited our purpose as we were able to have a long leisurely chat. Validated parking in the hotel for free is a plus!"

  • "Breakfast: we ate there twice. The food at the weekend breakfast buffet was excellent, with a nice mix of carbs, fresh made omelettes, fruit, yogurt, etc. If there is a line and you don't mind eating at the bar or at the casual seating, go ahead and seat yourself rather than waiting. Dinner: I had a lobster cobb salad and my husband had squash soup and a club sandwich. We were happy with the meal. Would definitely eat there if I was staying at the hotel. I wouldn't come to the restaurant from outside the hotel. There are too many other good options locally."

  • "We ate oatmeal so we were not very demanding food-wise, but the service was great, and the decaf coffee was actually excellent."

  • "We wanted a table by the window. We refused an inside table when we arrived. We didn't expect to wait for an hour. We were waiting by the lounge. The manager came by and offered us water and snack for free while we were waiting. The dinner was good. It was late. We didn't order any desert. The manager came by again at the end to bring us some fruit. We may consider to host our graduation party over there."

  • "This restaurant is in the Hyatt and is nothing more than the standard hotel haunt. They have a nice view, if you get near the window, but that really is the extent of their offer (other than being open before 10am on the week-end). The food was nothing like the pictures and servings were (thankfully) small. Coffee is mediocre, albeit plentiful. Nothing special, but if your stuck in Cambridge, and hungry, it;s open. They do have a continental buffet choice as well"

  • "My wife and I dined here on a Saturday night. She had the flank steak and I had the bolognese. Both dishes were served hot and there was very little wait time for the food. The restaurant is across from the Charles River so the view is quite nice. The service was excellent and we never felt rushed or ignored. We had the breakfast buffet the following morning which was also very good with a lot of options to choose from. All in all a good take for a local hotel. We would not think twice about returning to the hotel and the restaurant."

  • "We went to Zephyr to meet an out of town friend for breakfast on a Saturday morning. The buffet breakfast was fantastic--selection and quality. Service was excellent. One member of our party wanted to select an a la carte specialty French toast, but also wanted the variety of the buffet. The waiter suggested that he make a special order for the French toast, and add it to the buffet without extra charge."

  • "We had one of our best visits to Zephyr this time around. The list of specials included an excellent Clams Casino and a Margherita Pizza. Best of all, our server Jeff was an absolute delight. He is truly a great asset to the Zephyr. Hope he serves us often in the future!"

  • "My wife and I met there for lunch and we had a horrible experience. We waited for 20 minutes before the waiter came to offer us water. After waiting 45 minutes for sandwiches to be made, the wrong food was served. I would not recommend this restaurant."
