    Great food, lively vibe, friendly service. Esp good are the burgers, salmon and salads. However, it’s very loud. It’s in a basement, the sound bounces off surfaces, the music is loud, and the tables are large- you may have to yell to the people sitting across from you. One of the reasons we came was for the excellent burger - but they were out. Of burgers. We tried two desserts this time and do NOT recommend. The “smoked chocolate bread pudding” tasted like someone’s week old frying pan scrapings (actually, more like someone got too heavy handed with the liquid smoke). I had just said “it smells like bacon, someone must have gotten the pork belly nearby” but it was the dessert. I couldn’t get a forkful down. The Lime pavlova was a slab of merengue with a lime basil goo on top and strawberries. I ate a bunch of it but the other people with me thought it tasted like chalk and was bad. Also, skip the coffee.

    I have never been to Boston before, and Garret and his staff are Eastern Standard gave us the best experience of what Boston food is and the culture. They were also all very friendly and very accommodating for time as well as recommendations on the menu. Thank you all so much! I will definitely be coming back whenever we are here.

    I had an amazing experience at Terra!! The service was great and fast, and the food… amazing. Everything from the bread to salads to pastas, WOW! I was thoroughly impressed. Not to mention how beautiful it is! We had sat at 3:30 and with the restaurant closing from 4-5pm for turnover, I was skeptical if service would dull down/ be more rush. Our server was SO nice and attentive and did not treat us any different no matter the time. Something I really value as a guest and with my experience as a service, it’s something I look out for. Overall, such a great experience at Terra and I can’t wait to return!!

    Harvest is a local treasure! At a time when nice restaurants are struggling to survive, come to the place where Julia child dined (with her back to the body of the restaurant so she wouldn’t be disturbed). The tables are a reasonable distance apart, and you can have a conversation. The food is excellent. The waitstaff are unfailingly kind and attentive. It’s not inexpensive. But it’s worth every penny. As the square is increasingly populated by places that are deafeningly loud, It’s competition has dwindled. It’s delicious, civilized, and you leave feeling cared for and with a warm glow. It cannot be improved upon, and I am delighted it exists!

Discover Boston

Beantown, dubbed for the baked beans that put the city on the map, is about far more than beans these days. Local restaurants channel the region’s farm-to-table traditions and celebrate the iconic seafood of New England’s coast—no trip to the region is complete without a proper lobster (pronounced “lob-stah,” steamed and served with butter and corn on-the-cob), freshly shucked oysters, fried clams—you name it. Hometown to a handful of internationally influential female restaurateurs and the inimitable legacy of Julia Child, who called Cambridge home, Boston will always be a city where liberal sensibilities meet a global approach, in politics and on the plate.
