Alden and Harlow
While reservations are strongly suggested, we also save a portion of the dining room and bar for walk-ins in the event that your request cannot be accommodated. So please, come on in!
Parties of more than 8, please call to make a reservation.
We serve our full dinner menu until 11pm nightly and then switch to our late night menu from 11pm-Midnight, Sunday - Wednesday; 11pm-1am, Thursday - Saturday.
We’d heard amazing things about the burgers - namely that you need to be there early if you’re planning to get one, but everything we tried we loved- from the cocktails to a raspberry cheesecake that I could go back for that reason alone :) also this burgers has a cheese crust inside (yummy). Finally, our server was amazing, very helpful and friendly- we’ll be back for sure
Can’t thank the crew at Alden and Harlow enough for the most incredible anniversary meal! Our favorite spot in Cambridge - always a perfect date night!
Something was off about this night. Food was cold and playing looked hurried. Server (outside) was pretty rushed and largely unpleasant. Her main job was to take the order, and then whisk around and pour water for people.
Great meal well paced.
Great food and fantastic service!
This is the third time I have been here and I am constantly impressed! Had my birthday dinner here and very much loved it! Cant wait to go again!
Met my daughter and her friends for dinner. Very fun atmosphere and the food was diverse and delicious!
Everything our group of 8 had was fabulous. very easy for the gluten free to enjoy.
A&H’s new outdoor dining was great. Great food, great service and great weather. Who could ask for anything more?
I forgot how much I like this place. It has a great vibe, diverse crowd, and excellent service. I always leave happy after I have drinks or eats here. Don't hesitate just come. I would suggest getting 2 plates to share per person and be adventurous with the wine list and cocktails. Have fun!
Really didn’t like the Eggplant dish, left an awful taste in my mouth. Broccoli dish was yum and cheesecake was yum.
Food was fantastic, the drinks were fine. We had a big dish that was delicious.
Delicious food and excellent service. Mixed drinks are really strong.
This is a favorite of ours. The menu constantly changes as this restaurant serves local produce, etc. , interesting dishes that never fail to delight both the eye and the palate!
Fantastic food and cocktails, very attentative service. Always a pleasure coming here.
Incredible food, fun casual setting, good music and friendly wait staff
Food was sub par -- potato chips in several dishes seemed cheap and unimaginative. Felt we were forgotten about at times. Peaches and burger ok but not superb. Thought the peaches would be hot and they were cold, disappointing. Oh well.
Wonderful service and wonderful food. Outstanding selection of vegetarian and meat dishes. Corn cakes are incredible.
Food wasn't creative enough to merit the price tag.
Great tapas style brunch. Always amazing! Drinks are amazing as well
My friend had not been to Alden and Harlow. I steered her toward my two favorite dishes, and she loved them both! The service was wonderful with two servers teaming up to take good care of us.
Thoughtfulness and attention to detail evident throughout all the dishes, including sides (which are so fun!)
Guided well and everything came out at a smooth pace. It exceeded my already high expectations. Thanks to all!
On its way down. I have been here more than a dozen times and I think I am now done. The menu is tired and boring and the mainstays are not as good as they once were: kale salad was soggy and wilted, the charred broccoli was just a disaster.
Always a wonderful experience - great, inventive food and nice atmosphere. Always interesting to see what exciting new things they are offering. Lots of various types of seating which is nice, but our spot was a little dark for my old eyes! Great cocktails!
Fun place good food.
Food and service was average.
The brunch options were excellent. My friend and I shared an order of corn pancakes and herbed eggs that were both tasty and enough for two. The ambiance is an open floor concept and warmed by surrounding brick walls and earth colors.
Great place, food and ambiance. Biggest minus was that they first served us the sweet portion of our brunch and only then the savory options we ordered?!?
I just love the creativity that goes into the dishes. It might sound strange on the menu but when the food comes out everything works together perfectly. I also appreciate the family-style, all the dishes are meant to be shared with the table.
My favorite dish are the cornmeal pancakes with popcorn. Sooooo yummy!
Our first (but definitely not the last) visit here. LOVED the small plates theme. An excellent way to enjoy the multitude of amazing flavors offered.
Some on the choices were very creative. You have to trust the chef. Some of the dishes seem a bit unusual or even odd. They all seem to work, though.
Alden & Harlow never fails to impress. It is always my first choice and first stop for dinner when I'm in town from SF
Secret burger!! Secret burger!! Secret burger!! Secret burger!! Secret burger!! Secret burger!!
Wonderful restaurant! Will most definitely return when back in Boston...kudos to chef & team!
My friend and I were getting together for the first time in several months. We had a lot to chat about. The service was perfect. The food was great. No one bothered us about leaving ... even though we practically shut down the brunch service.
Consistency is a great virtue but especially when food, service and overall experience are consistently excellent. We eat here about 3 times a year and have never been disappointed by any aspect. With multiple small plates, pacing and sequencing is critical -- and again we found that this served to complement the dishes themselves.
Great food, service and environment. Hard to find one flaw. Enjoyed the the communal table very unique to be at a communal but set up to feel like you are at your own table. Great design.
Awesome food & service!
Stopped there for a Sunday brunch with my wife. The dishes were outstanding and by far exceeded our usual weekend brunch expectations. Creative flavor combinations, nice setting and a large dining room by standards of Harvard Square. Will absolutely go back for brunch and also want to try out their dinner menu.
