Haven't been here for years very disappointed. Used to be a very elegant place with exceptional food. Not the same any longer. Waiter very nice but I wouldn't go back.
Lively prominently gay bar, restaurant, and dance club. Good food, drinks, ambience.
Always consistent with their food. It is also a fun atmosphere. We started at the bar with drinks which are excellent and then sat down for dinner. If we had more time we would have moved to the dance floor.
Service was slow. Waited long time to get seated even with reservations. Food was good with nice size portions. Nice meal overall. Fun atmosphere and gay friendly. Recommend.
3rd time having Brunch at Club Café. We travel from Providence RI Area, to have Brunch there. Great Bruch and value for your money!!!
The food was good. This was a valentines dinner, I am happy it was not a date because the trivia was going on and it was anoying. Calamiri was excellent. My burger was good. My friend thought the fish batter was doughy. Drinks were good. Sangria needs some improvement.
Had Lunch with the purpose to catch up with some friends. Basic comfort food done well. Reasonably priced. One of my go to places before going to the Lyric Theater. The food has always been good there and the waiter, who was taken care of us many times, is fabulous.
This was my first time at Club Cafe, treating a friend to dinner. The service, food and ambience were most enjoyable, the wine was lovely. Will return.
There were four of us for New Years Day brunch. The hostess was very friendly and offered us a couple of choices for seating.
Our waiter Nicholas was great and very charming.
The only thing I would suggest is to bring the choices up a few notches. We have been to Club Café for brunch several times recently. One of thing I notice is that the selections are often similar. I always look for traditional brunch items, but the other lunch type selections are not as good.
Could I suggest trying the model I've seen lately in both Boston and New York? There are buffet items out as usual, but the actual "entre" is ala carte. Best of both worlds!
Food is disgusting. Service was worse. I thought it'd be fun to go back to CC after so many years, but I wish I hadn't.
Very Good Food......Drinks too!!
Great place for Thanksgiving Dinner. Food and Service were wonderful.
After finding Club Cafe last year when trying to find a Thanksgiving buffet/dinner on short notice, we had a great time and decided to go there again this year. This time it was my dad, my gf, and myself. The selection of food was a nice variety to suit all tastes, it was very tasty, and I went back for seconds. And maybe thirds. Service was friendly and fairly attentive. One nice touch was the live pianist. I suspect we will head neck again next year.
Excellent Buffet for Thanksgiving. Can't beat the way this Restaurant is operated. Always great....never disappointed.
I went for Thanksgiving dinner. I really like the fact that Club Cafe is giving back to the community in the form of a percentage of my dinner went to the Living Center.
The food was good. I especially liked the roasted turnips.
I have been going there for years and this year I decided to go out for Thanksgiving and saw their generous spirit and thought why not?
Food was very flavorful and the only reason I gave 4 stars is because the quiche was cold.
Great dining experience at my favorite place for food and entertainment.
Every year I made it my tradition to celebrate my birthday with my wife and friends. I had 2 orders of muscles and cocktail shrimp with several Strong pomegranate Martinis to top it off.
I was definitely impressed with the tasty muscles with the succulent juice that adorns it. Don't let it go to waste when you can soak it up with the warm bread that comes with it.
After all that I had to dance it off to finish the night.
Looking forward to next year..
The food was very good and the service was great!
I frequently visit this restaurant for dinner, drinks, and dancing. My first visits were great. The service was fast and friendly, the food and drinks were new and tasty. The last handful of visits over the past few months have gone severely downhill. My most recent visit the service was terrible. It took over 10 minutes for our server to bring two bottled beers. We ordered appetizers shortly after arriving and legitimately did not receive them for 40 minutes. I assume the waiter forgot to ring them in because after I asked about them it took an additional 15-20 minutes to get them. We didn't order chicken on our nachos (a $4 upcharge) but they came with chicken and we had a vegetarian at the table. We didn't say anything because we had already waited so long and were very hungry. Our entrees came out about 10 minutes later, but since I could see into the kitchen from the table and know the restaurant industry I saw our dishes sitting in the window prior to getting the appetizers. I knew they were ours because I saw our server move them there and then later grab those same plates and bring them to our table. The food was overall good, except for that there was black plastic in my sandwich. I stopped eating after I pulled the pieces out of my mouth.
We were at the restaurant for the finale of Rupaul's Drag Race and it was loud and busy, which we expected. Unfortunately after the very unappetizing talk between the hostesses they performed numbers which were so loud that people around me and myself we plugging our ears. We would have left as soon as possible but our server was too busy talking and hanging with his friends nearby. We waited nearly a half an hour to pay and leave. Granted that this is one of the few gay establishments in Boston I will return, but it will likely only be for drinks at the bar and dancing. So disappointing since I typically love this place!
Host was stuck up. Waiter came and took drink order for "another waiter Chris" but he never came. The first waiter eventually came back and took our order. We reported we were trying to make a show. He was very good at getting us out on time. 20% discount was not offered as advertised on website.
Friendly competent waiter, excellent food, great show. Overall wonderful experience.
Loved the veggie options! Great and attentive service.
Very pleasant to be there with all kinds of folks from community
Super nice staff and delicious food.
Sat in the Nepolian Room where the live entertainment was happening. The room was staffed with one individual covering nine tables. Food was good and live music excellent.
The main room was exceptionally noise. Even with the door and 80 wall the noise was heard.
Excellent service and good food at reasonable prices. Ask to be seated in the dining room, which is closed off from the main room and much quieter. Convenient dining for the theater performance in the Club.
We always have a great time at Club Cafe. Often eat there before a cabaret show or even during the show! Great, friendly staff, excellent service!
Saw Bonnie & Tracy show with friends-food great, show fantastic.ambience fun
The Filet Mignon is always spot on here! Love our servers especially Maureen! This place is more than a restaurant, it's a part of history. Can not be experienced fully in just one visit. The owner "Jim" is a gracious hands on host. Definitely recommend to friends and people visiting the city!
I almost don't want to write this, as this is the only real piano bar left in Boston and the venue is too small to get lots of new groupies. But it's all that the West Village haunts of NYC used to be -- friendly and fun, with everyone knowledgeable about Broadway, and not having to just listen to boring karoake renditions of pop music. If you're a live theater fan, you should check it out.
Sebastian our waiter was great! Piano/vocalist in Neopolitan room were excellent. Fun night
Good food, but waiter that basically ignored us and had attitude.
No one came to me when I arrived but they saw me and they took their time to do their errands so I left
Great food. Live piano player playing softly (and beautifully) in the background. Friendly waitstaff. All together, an extremely enjoyable brunch.
"Club Cafe" is a gem. The food is better than ever and the menu is interesting and varied.
The portions are generous but not obscene and the staff is so warm and friendly.
We really love this place and go back time and time again.
Went for Sunday brunch. Uninspired selections, barely lukewarm, quiche dry as dust. Piece of plastic in the cream cheese. Had to keep searching for the waiter, who seemed determined to ignore us. Won't be returning.
Went for a quick early dinner before wine riot. Our waiter was a sweetie and the food was excellent. Went back after the riot for dancing. Great time!
Server was knowledgeable. No dinner rolls? We arrived on a whim and I only wish there was a way to pay cash to see the Golden Girls. Good cocktails.
The foodie sandwiches and entrees are appealingly described but haphazardly implemented. For example, the slaw with my fish sandwich was heaped on the bun. If it was funky, dry slaw of some sort, that might be okay. But it was the usual the anodyne mayonnaisey stuff, resulting only in a soggy sandwich that fell apart after two bites. My wife had an "Italian grilled cheese" with prosciutto and basil. Of course, once you cook prosciutto, it becomes simply stringy bacon, and without enough basil, the sandwich was flavorless.
Best place for lunch, dinner or Brunch. Oh their famous Brunch! You'll be to glad you stopped by. Great vibe. Sort of the "real" place every one knows your name. Or will.
I'm a member of Club Cafe. Which mean you receive a 20% discount on food. The food is okay. The Cob Salad is huge and a star on the menu. The cocktail list is huge and delicious but a bit over priced but most Boston and Boston area cocktails are. The bingo on Mondays is a good time. Especially when Ru Paul's Drag Race starts up again. They play the episode and it's very fun. Pay attention and get there early and you can leave with a lot of prizes.
The weekend brunches have also gotten much much better.
