Another great experience with great service and a delicious new special. Once again we could not have enjoyed a dinner more, which is always the case for us at Daedalus.
Wonderful food, drink & ambiance up on the roof! Loved it!
Great dinner and drinks ! Very relaxing atmosphere-we will be back
Wonderful service and outdoor ambiance!
Great place, very nice atmosphere. A bit pricey, but the food (the duck) is good
The host and the waiters were very patient and kind! We first sat outside In the back patio, which is beautiful but it got too chilly for us as the season was changing rapidly and the early September weather was unexpectedly chilly. We asked to transition to sit insides and they accommodated us with kindness. We Then decided to check out the upstairs lounge which is beautiful and has a roof deck. So we decided to ask to move upstairs since there was so much more light upstairs. The host accommodated us again with kindness and we ended up having dinner upstairs. The portions were great. The side and main course were wonderful and the service was awesome as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant and they’re wonderful staff.
Sat at the bar. The bartender was accommodating to my dietary needs. We both got the lamb chops with Brussels sprouts. The meat was extremely high quality and excellent, and the sprouts were very tasty as well.
Enjoyable and high quality meal in a good ambiance. We will be back.
This was my second time here. First time was on amazing roof top patio. The second time it was raining so we sat inside. The ambiance is nice and the food and drink selection is great. We had another great meal and highly recommend this restaurant.
This place was DELISH- we got a bunch of small plates and everything we had was YUMMY. We wanted to eat out on the upper deck but it was super rainy so we weren't able to :( The interior was gorgeous though and we will definitely be eating outside next time!
Another enjoyable meal, great service, and relaxing atmosphere. Daedalus continues to WOW us with their specials making it our favorite goto place.
the ambience was awesome and location was good. The food was just ok, the appetizers were good , dinner was not great. Value also not great. we had a pleasant evening
It’s unexpected in a good way! Hidden gem. Great cocktails and service. The foods great too!
I've had dinner in Harvard Sq more than 2 dozen times but just discovered Daedalus. The web site says it's a hidden gem and now, I hope no one else discovers it because I want to go back again and again and have no trouble getting a table on the most amazing rooftop deck. The food and service was amazing too.
Talapia Tacos were spot on. Definitely skip ordering the burrata bruschetta. Steak tips were pretty decent!
Wife and I went out for date night and we were seated outside which was gorgeous terrace and honestly a great ambiance (not too quiet, not too loud). Ricky was our server and he was amazing; so attentive to all our wants and answered any questions we had. For our appetizer we ordered the Truffle Burrata Bruschetta and with all the flavors coming together so well it was fantastic. For entrees we ordered the Pulled Beef Gnocchi and the Steak Tips. The tips were nothing to write home about as they were missing flavor but the gnocchi was amazing. They were able to put the mushrooms on the side so I could eat it and it was so good- super creamy, thick and packed with flavor. Our bill was to be expected after our courses.
We sat outside on the patio which was beautiful. The tables and chairs weren’t very comfortable but they were aesthetically pleasing. The sangria was delicious but the virgin mojito was missing simple syrup so that wasn’t the best. Service was a little slow and the waiter only filled up waters for half the group which was odd but maybe just a mistake. The food was great - we had the pork tenderloin, stuffed gnocchi, and burgers. We would go back!
Another fantastic meal with out of town guests. Always WOWED by the food and service. It’s why it’s our regular go-to place.
Fabulous food! Buffalo chicken tenders and burrito outstanding. Stuffed gnocchi and seafood linguine as well. Staff was fantastic . And the rooftop patio was comfy and cool!
The cost of the food was pricy for the amount of food. Small plates. I can recommend this restaurant to grab a drink.
Our Mojito had no taste. The fish taco was good.
Our waiter was excellent! The food was modestly portioned but very tasty. The rooftop terrace seating ambiance is great!
Very nice place to have dinner (the food is delicious) and some drinks with a very small group of friends (4 persons). A bigger group can be complicated.
Absolutely perfect restaurant for a summer night. The roof terrace is gorgeous and the service was amazing!
The staff were accommodating as usual, provided the best in customer service, and as always, had excellent menu options. All of this keeps us coming back and has made this our go-to restaurant with our visiting out-of-town family and friends. Never a disappointment.
Service was great and attentive. Food quality was lacking. I got the serf and turf. Steak was drowned in BBQ sauce and stringy. Scallops were subpar.
Fabulous rooftop for dinner and sunset. The blackened haddock was out of this world! And, Daniel, our server was wonderful and appropriately at tentative.
I love this spot!
Food was great drinks were great patio was a vibe I will definitely be back only thing my server is was a little musty and I didn’t like that 😭
The food and service were great. We sat on the patio and the plants were outstanding!
We had a very pleasant date night. The food and the drinks were great
As busy as it was, the team at Daedalus, pulled it off once again with their usual great service and excellent food. They went out of their way to gets us in and comfortable during a storm.
What a lovely place, inviting in numerous ways... ambiance, decor, hospitable staff & delicious food- just perfect/ thanks for asking
Food was overpriced and not that good, service was bad. Place is beautiful and still recommended for drinks
Just making more comfortable seating, but the place was fantastic all around.
As is usually the case, we enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and service. Definitely our to-go place.
Food was great and price was to be expected. Our server, Luna, was lovely and the decor and vibe was beautiful. Will be coming back
Very good restaurant
Brian was our server and he did an excellent job. The fish chips were very good, as was the soft shell crab salad. Tasty wine. Cute booth.
The food is pretty good, but the real draw is the roof terrace, sublime on a lovely evening. Even on a slightly misty evening, it was great.
Best place in Cambridge to dine outdoors. The appetizers are delicious, the ambience excllent and waitstaff friendly. I highly recommend this venue.
