It was wonderful. The food was delicious. our server was knowledgeable and friendly. It was a bit expensive so good for special occasions
Amazing food but be prepared to wait, even if you have a reservation. Our party of 4 was seated almost an hour after our reservation time!
Our first visit to Pammy's did not disappoint. Service, Drinks, Food and Ambience made for a perfect and much-needed date night.
Even though it was a packed house for a Saturday evening at 8:00 pm, the hostesses were incredibly thoughtful and attentive and service throughout the night was helpful and pleasant. It was standing room only when we arrived 25 minutes early but were still seated about ten minutes prior to our reservation.
To start the night our cocktails hit the spot. My wife's negroni left me with drink envy - one of the best I've tasted - but the "Spanish Steps" was a quite refreshing campari-based cocktail in its own right. You'd be surprised how easy it is to mess up a Negroni, but they absolutely nailed the ratios of gin: vermouth: campari.
The food was outstanding, thoughtfully presented and prepared. We ate octopus, mussels, bucatini, branzino, and tiramisu finisher. Everything was outstanding from beginning to end, served perfectly piping hot (except for the Tiramisu, which would just be weird). Also, the Chef's homemade bread is something I would willingly disregard my gluten sensitivity for on a daily basis. I wish I had thought to ask for more with the mussels which were so delicious that I wound up eating the broth with a spoon. Wine was also solid with strong showings in the bottles and also a quite serviceable menu for by-the-glass drinkers.
The inside of the restaurant was cozy, warm and inviting, and quirky enough to be interesting but not so quirky as to be distracting. As with the food, thoughtful.
Great meal. Did was amazing! We have been there several times but tonight’s menu was great. One meal came out late but they took it off the bill which was the right thing to do. Will return!
The food was delectable: interesting, novel flavors that were somehow also comfortable, all perfectly prepared and well presented. The service was excellent: just the right amount of friendliness, attentiveness and skill. And the decor and ambiance were elegant and cozy. Strongly recommend Pammy's for anyone looking for a truly lovely evening.
Every dish was delicious. The service was relaxed and efficient. Sophisticated, but not stuffy atmosphere. This is our favorite restaurant in Boston. In fact, we accidentally overstayed the customary time for a reservation and kept the next customers waiting, which we felt badly about, but it was because we lost track of time! It's easy to do at Pammy's. Such an exceptional restaurant.
Amazing but the communal table really sucks and takes away from the experience.
We love this place!! It has the perfect ambiance in addition to fantastic food. We have been there several times and have never had a bad meal. Everyone that works there is so nice and helpful.
It's gotten so popular that it's hard to get a reservation, but it's worth the wait.
I am so glad that there is a restaurant like this near us.
Beautiful decor. Excellent and imaginative food and outstanding service. It has gotten so popular that reservations far in advance are necessary. Noise level is a bit high.
Favorite restaurant in Boston!
I loved two of the appetizers but my pork entree was lackluster both visually and taste. One of their special cocktails was the best I have had.
Hands-down, favorite place to eat, drink and basically spend the evening in Cambridge/Boston area. No other place I recommend more! Delicious food, careful selection of wine, cocktails that change often and never fail to surprise, and just the best, warmest service and atmosphere. That team knows what they are doing!
Fantastic as usual! The veal bruschetta is to die for and the pork is what dreams are made of! Absolutely LOVE Pammy's!!
Amazing as usual. The folks that work at Pammy's are more nice and thoughtful than you can imagine.
Lovely evening with friends!
The bolognese. What can I say about the BOLOGNESE?! Pammy's is dangerously close to my office, so I'll definitely be going back, the service is friendly without being in your face every minute, knowledgeable but not snooty (relatively) young staff. It's not a huge place, so there is a reasonable level of noise, but you won't even notice. We were sat right by the fireplace which was cozy.
Food was awesome, good portions made by someone who KNOWS what they're doing. All the stars for that bolognese, it's a "can't miss."
Superb experience. Excellent food that is surprising and delicious. We sat at the communal table and though you are sitting with others it still feels very intimate. The decor and staff welcoming and warm. This is a must visit.
Too expensive for the cramped and loud atmosphere and the uncomfortable seating. Also, not vegetarian friendly.
My date and I were sat in the middle of the floor. She had to sit on a fireplace and my chair was in the middle of the floor, in the way of foot traffic. We asked to move the table out of the way of the foot traffic but were told that we couldn’t block the fireplace. Yet, 10 min later they seated someone else directly in front of the fireplace.
I wouldn’t recommend going here unless you want a casual atmosphere and have a lot of $. The food is good though.
Just unreal. Best restaurant in years,
Maybe ever. Food,
Lamps, service, noise level, fireplace. Perfect, but the food was the best part.
The food was fantastic. Ask for a table by the window as overflow patrons wait for tables in the fireplace seating area which happened to be next to our table. My husband was 6 inches away from a stranger.
Other than that everyone else was wonderful, will definitely go back.
Fabulous service and the Brussels sprouts appetizer-was amazing
UsAlways a great time. Service is excellent and food is unreal.
Perfect food, perfect service. Definitely going to be a regular here!!
The duck is legitimately the best plate of food I've ever had.
Delicious bread and olive oil, pastas. Fun atmosphere. Great concept of seating pairs at big center table but it’s a shame they don’t take reservations for parties greater than 6 people.
We arrived late due to traffic, and they saved our table, and rushed our food so we were not late to the concert we were attending. Food was excellent as was service. We want to go back when we can relax in the lovely dining room.
Unfortunately, we had to wait 35 minutes before we were seated for our reservation.
Food, service, everything is great. Lauren the sommelier is spectacular and very helpful.
Great brown butter apple cake with vanilla ice cream, surprisingly delicious. I'm not a big fan of apple cake, but this one definitely worth to try.
Fabulous place, great ambiance. We were delayed for our reservation and our dining room table was given away, but they accommodated us in the 'lounge' which turned out to be even better. Sitting by the fireplace, in front of the windows, as the first snow of the season started to fall. The staff were all friendly, and unhurried, each dish we had was delicious and beautifully presented. Highly recommend, worth the trip from Boston to Cambridge, even on a snowy night.
Always amazing. Fav restaurant in the area.
This was out 3rd visit to Pammy’s, we love the place, service, vibe. While we really enjoyed our meal, we preferred the menu from summer. Will wait for new menu before returning.
Always a great meal and service at Pammy’s!!
Disappointing dining experience. Chicken "special" was no better than KFC Next day reheated. Looked disgusting, had unpleasant odor and tasted worse. Besides this, presentation was terrible, no attempt to garnish and was overall the worst main course I have ever been presented.
And the audacity to nor remove from the bill, when sentiments were conveyed to waiter and Chef!
Never again! In Boston, we have choices and this is one place that we will not go back to.
Great staff and amazing food. Definitely a little different as incorporate other ingredients in their food that you wouldn’t think of, but I mean that in the best way possible.
I almost don’t want to rave about this place so it doesn’t get more popular! They deserve so many accolades for their food, service and ambiance! Excellent!!
Great dinner- wonderful antipasto and pasta dishes.
Restaurant was very noisy and tables are too close together.
Best restaurant in the universe! Love it for every occasion.
Delicious food. Friendly staff made great recommendations and it never felt like I was rushed during my meal.
