Came here with my girls' part of our girls' weekend. They have a 90s hip hop brunch every 1st Sunday of the month and found that to be a bit disappointing as it was just 90s tunes playing with no other themes adding to it (like hiphop themed drinks/food, outfits etc.). If they do ramp that up it would definitely be another star!. Other than that the service was great, albeit our food did take some time to come out, BUT when it did WOW WOW WOW so good! My Good Morning Pizza was so big that I had to take some with me even AFTER I shared with BOTH of my girls (they kindly provided a plastic bag for me to make a portable cooler- to keep it refrigerated until I got to a fridge- with the ice from the ice bucket that held our champagne for our mimosas, which were great too!) . The food I sampled off their plates, the S'mores French Toast and the Chicken and Waffle Sandwich were also heavenly! And the bill was not bad at all for ordering our food plus splitting a table mimosa (which came out to be about 2 mimosas per person for 3 people) - a little less than $30 per person. Overall if you could just be a little patient for the food , it's a great place to come and eat and drink while bopping to some 90s hiphop jams :) More

Wonderful restaurant tucked away on Mass Ave. Fantastic food over 4 courses with a vegetarian option for each course. All the options were great (as we got opposite ones from each other). Highly recommended. Hope this place never, ever closes! It's not cheap - but it's worth every penny. A Paris type Bistro right in Cambridge. More

Seafood | Chatham, Cape Cod and the Islands

I have dined her many times and even held my daughters wedding here and I have never failed to have a fine meal and excellent service. The view is spectacular. I would make one suggestion: clarify the "service charge" of 18%. This has been termed a "resort fee" in the past. The check includes a notification of this charge but also has a line for specific gratuity. Would the gratuity be the usual 30% that I leave for the wait staff or 12% additional added to the 18% service charge? Since the bill here is usually substantial the amount is not inconsequential. A 48% gratuity would be overgenerous. On the other hand, a 12% tip would be rather low considering the great service. This isn't a cover charge as it varies from diner to diner and I don't like to have a conversation about this with the waiter or manager at the end of my meal. More

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.
