I love the Sinclair. The waiter was kind and attentive, and the noise level and ambiance was perfect for a casual catch-up dinner with an old friend. Oh and the food and extensive drinks list was so so good. There's something on the menu for everybody.
Today was a bad day. I'll consider returning when they are fully staffed. They only had one server on duty for the entire restaurant during brunch. I'm not sure why they thought that was a good idea. She tried her best and had a positive attitude. She also discounted our check significantly since my patty melt was burnt and fries were cold. They were nice and apologetic about it. That was appreciated. My wife's omelette was good and the el scorcho tea was good. Maybe it'll be better in the summer.
The food and service was good for pre-theater. There was a late show, so the restaurant was almost empty when we were there. However, the whole experience was ruined by my having left a special scarf on my chair or on the floor. The restaurant was not busy when we left Normally, this would be found by the wait staff when they clean the table and given to the management. After the theater we returned expecting that it would be there. It was not. It had been taken. I am not accusing anyone, but I doubt the table was filled after we left. Very, very disappointing. I know I left the scarf - those things happen. It is the failure to promptly retrieve and store it that bothers me - made it vulnerable to theft.
Sorely understaffed. Quick pre-concert meal took close to two hours. Impossibly long wait to order and receive additional drinks. Water glasses never refilled. Saw my food sitting in the open kitchen for nearly 10 minutes, so of course it arrived lukewarm.
We got to the restaurant right at 11:00 when it opened for brunch. The restaurant has a nice vibe and the waitstaff was very pleasant and attentive. Among the four of us we had the burger patty, the breakfast plate (scrambled eggs with English muffin, bacon and home fries), the western omelet, and the bagel with lox, bacon and chive cream cheese. The burger patty was very good and the other three brunch entrees were just average. I would come back to The Sinclair for drinks and music but wouldn't necessarily come back for the food.
We loved this experience...and it is such a great option before seeing the music. Great staff! Great meal.
Wait staff was a bit slow (may have been understaffed) but apologetic and very friendly. Food is consistently good. Attached to the Sinclair venue it's a no-brainer for a pre-gig meal. Great atmosphere and cocktails.
We arrived early before a show so had prompt seating. We enjoyed the brussel sprouts, mussels, ravioli, and roasted chicken but had to wait for a glass of wine until after the brussel sprouts were delivered and half eaten. Note that the menu on Open Table did not reflect the menu that night.
This was our first time at the restaurant and Our experience was SUPERB!!!The waiter was very kind and on top of everything!!!
The most amazing was when the cook took time from the kitchen to come and talk to us!!!!
The food was EXTRAORDINARY!!! Especially the roasted chicken dish, which we heard is one of the favorite and they cannot take it from the menu :)
It’s a classic!
Overall, we are definitely coming back and bringing family and friends with us!!!
Great spot in Harvard Square!
