We adored the atmosphere. Our server, Colin, was a delight. The staff was extremely friendly. The wine list and our selected wine was fantastic (Peter the wine director). We found the Prime Rib Special to be a disappointment. 1/3 of my serving was pure fat. Same with the other diners. The side dishes (Caesar Salad/Creamed Spinach/Carrots/Potato Galette) were very unexceptional. I will try this place again for oysters and wine.
Introduced my in-laws to Puritan over brunch. Multi-generational satisfaction!
Four of us went for brunch. The quiche was dry overcooked bad. The hash horrible tou gh no flavor. Pankakes ok. We couldn't order poached eggs. Not doin that today. Seems everything was pretty made dry serv r 100 people move on. Worst brunch ever.
Need to fix it.relying on volume customers.
It was bad. Wish it wasn't. You can fix this. Just ask me.
This was, by far, the best brunch I've ever had. We ordered a basket of four pastries—maple bacon muffin, cinnamon roll, orange and thyme scone, cashew croissant—and I had the breakfast croissant with bacon, eggs, cheddar, and potatoes. The food sounds simple enough on paper but the flavours are spectacular, and everything was perfectly done. The bacon was smoky and just crunchy enough, the potatoes were salty and wonderfully crisp, the pastries were sweet without being toothache-inducing. The croissants were no limp, crescent-shaped dinner rolls; they were true croissants, buttery and puffed up with layers of crisp, delightful pastry.
Service was great as well, very polite and quick. The restaurant was packed (understandably so; if I lived near Cambridge I'd probably be queuing up outside this place every weekend) so make sure you book a reservation in advance. Floor plan is open and there's not much space between tables, so while it's no place for a hushed, intimate chat, it's not obscenely loud either. But to be honest, even if Puritan was filled with rude waiters and smelled like a dumpster fire, I'd still patronise it often because the food is just that good.
My boyfriend and I came here for brunch, and it did not disappoint. I ordered the croissant breakfast sandwich, and it was SO buttery good. He ordered the pancakes and enjoyed those too.
I would definitely recommend this place for brunch. The only downside is that without a reservation, it's almost impossible to walk in and get a seat on the weekends.
Our go to special night. A great foodie experience. Wonderful menu, fantastic service
Puritan never ever disappoints, and that is why we chose to celebrate my mother's 60th birthday at the restaurant. The staff is so kind and friendly, and carefully took the time to review the menu and the night's specials with us as we were making our decisions. We had a wonderful dinner, and will certainly be back again.
Valentine’s Day and Husband’s Birthday! Service was pretty good. Food was great. Chef’s tasting menu. Cocktails delish.
This was our first time at this restaurant. I have no idea if it is always this “busy” but people were rushing past our table regularly during our meal. Made it hard to settle in and just absorb the experience.
Granted, it IS Valentines Day and I am quite sure every table needed to turn as quickly as possible, but I would have preferred a bit slower pace.
Had 5:30 reservations on a Sunday night. Didn’t realize that it didn’t open until 5:30. It was pouring rain and they did not open the doors to let us wait in the hallway and yes, they saw us outside as well as other folks. That started the night on a bit of a sour note but we were excited to try the wonderful menu. Once inside the decor is rustic and charming and the staff were super friendly and helpful. We were seated along a wall that had a long cushioned bench. The bench was very uncomfortable. Loved the menu choices and our appetizer-mushroom toast was fabulous. The roasted chicken I was served however, was burnt on the outside and dry on the inside. I do like a crisp skin but this was burnt, as were the potatoes which were unevenly cooked. Roasted chicken seems so simple but I love to order it as there is an art to a great roasted chicken. This one was not good. My husbands meal was wonderful as was the salad. So very mixed reviews. We really wanted to like it but don’t know if we’ll return. And having us waiting outside when there is a sectioned off entry way was very off putting.
