Food was really good except for the salad that was super bland (they take out of the check). The restaurant's service has its fault but they always fixed them. The only thing I did not like was the tables, the booth is uncomfortable.

Excellent food, if overpriced. We went on a holiday when they had a prefixed brunch menu. The choices were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed every bite. $50/pp not including any beverage for a 3 course brunch was a little steep.

Our server stressed us out on Easter Sunday brunch. He had a strange demeanor and did not make us feel welcome. I don’t think I will be returning- which stinks because the food and rose sangria was so good! Bad service sticks with you!

Puritan & Co was super accommodating for our group as it increased from the reservation. They seated us immediately and found a way to keep us together over the course of the evening. Their Dine Out Boston menus was excellent all around, the dishes were hearty but fresh, and there was a variety of drink options. So glad that we finally had the opportunity to try this local gem!

Great service, food, and location. I made a reservation a few days before, because we had a family member visiting from the UK, and wanted a nice Sunday brunch. We arrived on time, and were promptly seated. The service was excellent -- attentive without hovering, relaxed and friendly, all despite the restaurant being quite busy. The good was excellent as always -- the cinnamon buns are highly recommended. This was the first time we've been seated at the front of the restaurant, which was very nice -- good people watching.

Food was above average, but also too greasy/buttery/heavy, and the kitchen was excruciatingly slow. They were working very hard, but it didn't seem like they had a good system in place. For how simple the food was, it should have come out a lot faster (less than 45 minutes).

My mother and I were in on a Friday night and had the best time! Great table up front perfect for people watching. The food was delicious from start to finish and we remarked on how attentive the whole staff was. Not just our lovely server Gray, but everyone who worked there! We felt very well taken care of. This was not out first time in to dine and it won’t be the last! Thanks Puritan! Keep doin what you’re doin

We always come to Puritan & Co for our anniversary, it's now our tradition starting with the first year. We'd heard about their brunch and kept saying we wanted to try it, so we finally made it happen. Unfortunately it wasn't nearly as outstanding as the dinner service (which is still among the absolute best in Boston), which kind of surprised us. The food was just OK, kind of bland actually, and the service felt kind of rushed. The seating is very tight, so I guess we've been spoiled with the anniversary dinners, and it's difficult to hear conversation in that setting. We still without a doubt love them for dinner, but the brunch was a miss for us.

This is my second time at this restaurant. It is a great addition to Cambridge. Space is really well laid out. Tables are not jammed together. The decor is fun with touches such as old file folders to house the menu. The food is delicious and always different whenever you come.

Food was great. Broccoli appetizer and lamb pasta were amazing. Wait staff were very friendly and informative.

The ambience was a little ho-hum. The experience felt a bit like a camp cafeteria - large room, high ceilings, and loud. Neighbors to my left and right were not using their inside voices. Difficult to carry on conversation at my table. Also there was a corner seat next to us so there was a gentleman facing us, tad awkward at first.

Food is delicious, top notch.

Puritan & Company is HOME, in our weekend Inman Square condo. We were welcomed after about a two month hiatus (snow, work etc.) with such nearly overwhelming delight last Saturday. Everything about the evening was precisely memorable - the welcome, the food, the wine, the dessert ---the WELCOME! We are fans. Ann Page and Rick Stecker

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.

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.

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.
