The service was slow, our order was incorrect and the food was mediocre. After the food came the server paid little attention to us. I have to say, I was hoping for a better experience especially since they are known for their brunch!

The brunch was absolutely fantastic. The portions were very filling and a little on the large side if you want to try their amazing pastries. I highly recommend the kouign amann.

It was a solid “date night” location without separating itself from the pack. I was hoping it might be a step or two better than restaurants where I live in Jamaica Plain. It was about the same quality, but a little more expensive, and the service was only ok. The negroni was great though. I would go again for sure, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

Food was outstanding, and the portions were bigger than I anticipated. Typically when you order duck, you tend to get skimped. This what not the case with the hash, which was awesome. The rose sangria was exceptional. Bathrooms have a weird setup and the light was broken, but I'm definitely recommending this place for a brunch date.

I went here on a date on a Friday and used OpenTable for the res. P&Co did a great job of working with our dietary restrictions (no gluten, no dairy.) Everyone we interacted with knew enough about the items on the menu to recommend dishes that fit or could be changed to fit our needs. We had excellent meal for a good price!

As always, Puritan and Co exceeded my expectations. The food was great, our waitress was very kind and accommodated a few food allergies adeptly. The kitchen was turning out amazing food. I always forget how wonderful their food is. Everything we had was just a little surprising and all very satisfying. I can't wait to go back. They have a cocktail with bourbon, grapefruit and honey that is dangerous. Also ask lots of wine questions because they have a great list and are happy to help!

I've heard great things about this place for a while now and recently took my parents there while they were visiting. We had a great time, the service was excellent, and the food was delish! We split the spinach and artichoke toast, burrata, and barbeque beets before order out entrees. I had the salmon and would highly recommend any of those choices and would happily order them again. The server was personable, kind, and offered the perfect wine pairing suggestions for our meal.

I think this goes down as the worse Mother’s Day meal ever. Our server was nice- but after taking our order and pouring our sangria into our glasses we never saw him again. The chopped salad appetizer was fine and a good serving. The asparagus bisque was 8 tablespoons full in a large bowl with a shallow insert to make it look plentiful. It was served warm and was not hot. Someone cleared our dishes. Then our entree came and was thrown in front of us by a sever and he left. No explanation. Just dropped in our place setting. The cod was fine although we were advised that it would not be served in a phyllo dough. The gnocchi was indistinguishable. It was mushed potato with artichoke surrounding the gnocchi. It was hard to determine which was which. We never saw our waiter from the time we ordered. No one came by to see how everything was. My husband finished and I had no one to tell about the disappointment in the dish. Someone arrived to clear the plates and asked if I’d like to take it home. I asked for the manager. Peter arrived at our table. I told him about our disappointment. We had hoped to see Will Gilson there as we had done two private parties at the Herb Lyceum- and that we I was most disappointed with my meal, the lack of service, and we asked for the check and to skip dessert. We waited and waited. Our original server still never came to our table. Two spoons were placed by our table setting. We looked at each other as we were waiting for the check and NO DESSERT. Peter was packing the dessert to go. He brought a togo bag to our table, dropping it on the table and said there was no charge for the meal and hurried away. We were startled by what happened. We want to leave something for the server. We left a $20 on the table. I got up and went up to the server and said I don’t know what happened as it started off just fine. Peter was nearby and I asked why he just left the bag without and apology and he just blamed us for having a problem

I took my mom out for Mother's Day brunch because their menu looked absolutely amazing! Very well curated, focused on mostly seasonal items, and even had a lemon artichoke gnocchi dish for a brunch item! The portion sizes were PERFECT, not too small and just right to not fill grossly stuffed at the end. The place is beautiful and very quiet, even with almost every seat taken. Definitely a place to go for a more casual, special occasion, or having friends visiting Cambridge, or even just for a fun dinner with friends! I will definitely be back (especially for Bloody Mary's with the option of gin!)

This is a very well run establishment. The front of the house staff is attentive and efficient. Our crab toast was interesting in a very good way, my duck perfectly cooked. My wife didn't enjoy the accompaniments that were served with her salmon, but her salmon was cooked very much to her liking. We'll be back.

Cozy romantic ambiance, with acoustic panels and soft seating to decrease noise! Much appreciated. Limited seafood-heavy menu can nonetheless be quickly made vegetarian with veg or mushroom substitutions. Just ask! Servers are so helpful and knowledgeable. Delicious and craveable spring greens salad with green goddess dressing and crispy flat bread chunks! Perfectly cooked tender salmon w crisp exterior, lots of flavorful veg, and delicious crispy spaetzle!! Notable and interesting wine list! An entire section of Vino de Velo, or wines aged under Flor/yeast layer. Sherry, etc. Impressive selection of amari as well. Can't wait to go back and try all the things!! Out of the way place but well worth the trip: great food, great drinks, great ambiance, relatively quiet, gracious and attentive A+ servers who strive to meet your dining needs.

Diners should be cautioned that this restaurant engages in mild price deception. Upon completing dinner, the bill that we received included an additional 4 percent charge listed as a fee for the kitchen staff. I inquired about this, as I had never seen such a fee before at any restaurant. I was told that the waiters pool tips, but that law does not allow pooling tips with kitchen staff. Hence, the management adds 4 percent as an implicit tip for kitchen staff. I suggested that the pricing of menu items should include the amount to pay kitchen staff adequate wages. I was told that the management prefers not to do this, as it makes the restaurant appear more expensive. Thus, instead of being honest about the prices of menu items, the restaurant has chosen to be deceptive about its pricing, with diners paying 4 percent more than the prices shown on the menus.

We had an OK time but it was my brother's Birthday and I asked the hostess if she could do something for his Birthday (which typically signals the desire for a dessert with a candle in it) and they brought a bowl with a candle in it standing up NOT inside any desert. It was very weird. This seemed like a major miscommunication and if our party hadn't been good humored it could have gone poorly for the waitstaff.
