La Fabrica Central
Celebrity Chef Giovanna Huyke...
Excellent menu and vibe but food needs much improvement.
Great place to eat and enjoy beverages. After some dancing. Truly enjoyed.
Pleasantly surprised! Food, service and ambiance was great!
Authentic Latin carribean cuisine by PR chef Giovanna Huyke was such a welcomed surprise in Cambridge. The live salsa music after 8pm was added touch in making us feel like we were in PR.
Highly recommend the trifrongo with chicken and the pastelon.
No hesitation , we love La Fabrica. The various mofongos were delicious , my favorite was with the shrimps.
The service was super. We had the attention and the service was fast.
I will definitively go back and recommend friends.
Great food concocted by one of the greatest chef from Puerto Rico’s notable cuisine. Right on Mass Avenue in Cambridge it is a great place for both those looking for a taste of home and foodies. Try the Pork Chops (“chuletas”) and the mofongo Het q side of white rice with red beans and you can’t go wrong. If your are lucky, you will get to meet the chef, a very friendly and special human being. ¡Buen provecho!
Wonderful place on a Sat night for food, music and people watching. Service was top notch as usual too.
It was a wonderful experience. The food was great and the staff super friendly and accommodating. Loved it. I will go again soon.
I still love this place, LOVE the staff. Great overall
Enough said. I would never go back. They acted like we were a bother.
I found it too dark inside
I celebrated my birthday here and we had an amazing time! The mango spicy margaritas and mojitos especially were delicious. I highly recommend the plantains and yucca croquettas!! Our waitress was excellent, she was very accommodating for my party of 7. A manager/owner introduced himself to our party as well as was so nice and gave us a great experience. We went directly into the nightclub after which was such a blast as well. If you want a sure-fire good place for a lively, delicious, fun night out - this is it! I love especially the two-in-one deal with the nightlife right through the back doors. Love La Fabrica!
I absolutely love the club and bar but the food is overpriced and small portioned!
Wasn’t happy with the appetizers and the entrees
I will definitely go back for drinks and dance not to dine!
Our waiter Edgar was attentive, kind and thoughtful. He even went out of the way to fulfill an off menu item (morir sonando), and it was delicious. Gracias Edgar!
We were pleasantly surprised. We really liked it!
Fantastic food, excellent services and ambiance. Would definitely go again!
My husband and I have been to Fábrica Central a few times because of the fun atmosphere , music,and good food but the last two times the hospitality of the hostesses has been lacking. On both occasions we have walked into an argument between staff. On the first occasion I listened to foul language come of the hostess’s mouth while we were waiting to be seated and last Saturday we waited a couple minutes to be acknowledged by the hostess because she was in a heated discussion with a server. Fun place to go but bad first impression when you walk in. I will say the waiters and Valet parking attendants made up for the bad first impression.
We had a delicious meal at La Fabrica this weekend. The chicken/gouda fondue, green papaya salad, and swordfish entree were all amazing. The ambience was lively, and live music was just getting going as we left. We'll be back!
Amazing place. Still one of my favorite spots in the city
Great place, Latin food was just as was we get in Costa Rica. Ambience is a little loud with good music but we were hoping it was like that. Low prices, not small portions. Decided to share several small plates and one was really good. Probably will return
Excellent food. Authentic and healthy like no other Caribbean or Puerto Rican restaurant in Greater Boston. Lunch or dinner, it is a good place to visit.
A bit small of a lunch menu
Went to La Fabrica for a girls night out. The food was great, drinks were awesome, and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful in picking suggestions of what to eat and drink. Will definitely be going back to enjoy more nights there!
It's a great place for eat Puertorican gourmet food with a great atmosphere. Great famous international puertorican Chef, Giovana Huyke . Also they have live music. After 11:00 pm they close the kitchen and the keep it open like a club bar. I recommend it for any occasion. Best place here in Boston for puertorican gourmet food. I recommend it YOU WILL HAVE A GREAT TIME !!!
I've been to Fabrica several times, but this time around the menu was very limited. Bring back some of the classics!
I feel right at home when I go! It is a great experience , with amazing music, sweet waiters/waitresses/staff, and easy to get to. If I lived closer I’d be there every weekend. :)
The food was really good, I had some empanadas and they were delicious, my husband also really enjoyed the food. We were just a little confused because it said restaurant but the plates were not really a restaurant size. But since the price wasn't that bad I order 2 plates and my husband order 4 different dishes. The waiter besides being so cute, he was really nice and cordials, he took the time to explain everything to us. I had a great time definitely going back there.
Happy, sunny-feeling, even in winter. Team service (not just the person who takes your order), an interesting menu, good drinks list, and well-prepared food.
It started with the security guard outside the establishment. He was very rude and neither him nor the doorman would let me in to join my fiancé and her mother after I made reservations for three under my name. They kept telling me that my name wasn’t registered for a reservation when in fact my fiancé and her mother got in using my name. I was then asked by the doorman and security guard out front to call my fiancé and have her confirm with the waitress if there was enough room at a table that I already reserved for three. I finally got in but was very upset by the operation and how they treated me. Was raining so that didn’t help with the mood while waiting at the door.
I’ve been to la fabrica three times before with a great experience but this was the worst time I had there I don’t think I’ll be going back. Not to mention the table we were sat at was very small. What’s the point of reservations when your stopped at the door by people who somehow can’t look your name up on their iPads after they let others in on your reservations. Can’t tell if this place is a restaurant or mainly a night club that serves food items. This establishment was known for good food and service but it seems like on fridays the club takes first priority. Place went from a top of the line restaurant to Applebee’s because of the day of the week. Wish my fiancé’s mother had a better birthday celebration than to have had it there.
We get there and we order swordfish around 8 PM and then we want to drink the waitress comes back 45 minutes later says we ran out of swordfish can I get you something else and then one of the staff people come over and say will give you two complementary shots I feel like they could’ve told us that earlier because we are ordering drinks and anticipating the food to come after and she kept saying kittens little backed up right now that’s why there was a 45 minute wait and then at the end of the wait they didn’t have our food and they had some frozen salmon that was thawed it looks very pale and frozen looking I definitely would not recommend going here again for food drinks are a bit overpriced
The best place
The food was great, our server was great, and we enjoyed the restaurant, and then the show, thoroughly.
My wife and I love La Fabrica Central. We live a few blocks from it and it is one of our go to spots. Cerviche, tostones, seafood rice and the flan are all amazing,
Service was very poor. Staff was rude and the service at the back bar was horrible. They told us we needed to leave if we were not ordering drinks; we were still finishing the drinks we had ordered. Overall very disappointed with the entire experience.
Their was a$25 cover charge yo the club, but we ate and drank at the restaurant, why were they charging ya a cover ? Poorly managed establishment.
Always wonderful service. Food always makes me want more. Clean. Thank you.
The menu is very small. It would be great to have a bigger selection
Server was extremely slow to get to our table. We were seated but never approached by a waiter until we asked someone for service.
La Fábrica Central was a great place to go and eat, drink and dance. Had a really good time there:)
We stopped in after a festival in Cambridge. We each got a cocktail and those were delicious. I would highly recommend their drinks. We ordered a few appetizers. It took a little while to get our food, but we were enjoying the ambiance. I can say the food is okay and possibly a bit overpriced. I would definitely return.
