They could use some more vegetarian entrees. Service was great - very friendly. Loud guests nearby, but that may have been only that night. Lots of screens showing sports: nice if that's your thing; a bit too much if it's not. Food was ok, but expensive.

Maybe just a slow night?

Went in on a Wednesday at 7:00 and just felt like it should have been busier. Unless you're there for appetizers, the menu feels like a whole suitcase of missed opportunity. We had $15 burgers, which is a bit on the high-priced side for a burger that was good but not great. (Although, I should point out, they were beautifully prepared - a true rare and medium-rare, respectively, and seemingly few kitchens get that right.) Our server's mind was simply not in the game (or maybe ON the game - there were at least three in big TVs all around us), asking us questions we had repeatedly answered (Can I get you anything to drink? For the third time, no. And what would you like as your side? Sweet potato fries - we already covered that. And how about some dessert [she asked AS she took our dinner order]? No thanks, again). Cmon. With about four tables occupied, it should have been an easier night for her.

Went here for the Sunday brunch buffet. For $17 couldn’t beat it, they had a great selection of delicious , fresh food and desserts. There was a water main break down the street and posed an issue with the water that day. The manager and waitstaff were so apologetic and even took our drinks off the bill. I would go back for the food and definitely for the hospitality!

Nice place, great location in Central Square near Cambridge City Hall and good food. I had the steak frites and it was honestly as good as any I had in France last month.

The service was wonderful and foods had plenty of options in the all you can eat brunch with a good price for brunch and drinks. I especially loved the mimosa it was a very good price for a bottle which is around 6-7 glasses. I will be definitely coming back.

730 Tavern is what one would expect; offers a nice range of food and drink choices, plenty of TV screens and cheerful service. I recommend it for a happy get together or a friendly place at which to while away time.

The food at this place was decent, but everything else was below par. The staff was distant and a little surly, the service had trouble getting the order right, the place smelled bad and seemed dirty and the multiple giant TV screens had the volume turned up so loud my ears hurt.

The medium-well burger we shared, topped with guacamole & bacon, disappointed. This was our first trip to this venue since it changed from being in the Tavern in the Square chain. Very little has changed so far: same seats, lay-out, types of food, etc. The food wasn't as good, however, this visit.
Upgrades expected.

My wife and I ordered a flatbread and nachos. The flatbread tasted like a frozen pizza from the grocery aisle and the nachos were a mass of glued together chips that arrived cold. The comedy show we went to in the next room also sucked. I get that it takes balls to get up in front of a dozen people and tell jokes but these people were just not funny. Maybe we didn't have enough to drink and they get funnier during their next set.

My daughter and I were in search of someplace new to try in Central Square. We were delighted. Our server was very personable and attentive without lurking. Food came out fairly promptly, and was attractive and delicious. Her Ruben came on a very good bread, and had just the right amount of beef. My salad had a lovely piece of salmon and I was very satisfied. We definitely will come back.

Went for some appetizers and drinks. The nachos were delicious and there was a good wine selection. The servers were wonderful, (we had two since one was training and they were both lovely). The noise level, just like the previous incarnation of this restaurant, is really high. If you’re going with a group it’s lots of fun but if you’re trying to chat with a date or a friend it’s challenging. Not the spot for an intimate conversation but definitely a relaxed, fun place to go with great food and drinks.

We went to 730 Tavern to watch the MN Vikings game last Sunday with other local Vikings fans. We had a blast! The wings and nachos were good, and there was a nice beverage selection. The wait staff did a nice job of making sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely be back!

Good beer, reasonable cocktails, forgettable food. Generic Boston upscale bar. Too many TVs and sports memorabilia to be ideal.
