Sunday Brunch 10am-2:30pm
Great restaurant...My family and I really enjoyed the food. The service was excellent and the staff was very attentive.
Our waiter was very good and accommodating. The kitchen was overwhelmed and sent the wrong food out our the dish too early as next course. So the pasta that got there too early was cold by the time we got to it.
Waypoint was 5-star out of this world!!! For starters, my wife ordered a Hungarian wine, I had a Greek wine, were so different and complimented our dinner perfectly. Our food, Tuna ceviche plate, bluefish plate and lobster pasta entree were out of this world. Everything was perfect, only bummer was I requested a birthday note to be on the table and nothing was there.
Our server was friendly and had an encyclopaedic knowledge of both the food and cocktail menus. Tuna crudo is a must. The Professor and the Buttered in Bond were standouts on an inspired cocktail menu. We finished the daily crostada—to die for. This place is fire. Don’t sleep.
Outstanding food, we were impressed by the balance of every plate.
Service is very friendly and amenable.
Had a wonderful experience. The food is always good and the cocktails always well made. This time the service was also particularly good. Our server (Lucas/Lukas) was really fantastic. We had a fun and interesting dialogue with him. He was around when necessary but otherwise let two friends catch up. We ended up engaging him quite a bit and it made our night even more enjoyable.
Great place, great food, great staff.
A bit pricey but totally worth it. The crudos are out of this world :)
The service was slow, and they were leaving dirty plates and empty bottles on the table. We had to chase them down, to clear plates, get drinks etc.
Wonderfully prepared food designed for sharing which made for a fun dinner. A bit loud in the restaurant which made conversation a little difficult. Dessert list seemed lacking so we skipped that course.
A few points:
. Great ambiance and servers were very attentive
. Cacio E Pepe was heavily salted
.Char belly done well with just enough smokiness and texture
. Solid menu for business dinners but does not have a memorable\ standout menu
We were party of 6, and ordered multiple dishes. The pizza was good, so was the crudo. The snail dish was very plain, so was the super expensive Lamb dish. For a seafood restaurant with high pricing, I didn't think it was worth it.
Outstanding Restaurant. Everything about it was supreme, especially the chef's creative menu.
Spectacular and original food, fun decor, hip atmosphere, great cocktails!!!
Far too noisy
Waaaay too much dressing on kale salad
Waitress good enough, but not very happy or pleasant,
What a great experience. The food delicious and beautifully presented. Our waitperson Yang S was beyond any one who ever provided me service before. She knew the menu and wines in depth and explained all in beautiful detail. My son, daughter in law and I ordered several plates to share and loved every one of them. Definitely one of best food experiences have ever had. Thanks so much!
Food was overall excellent. We had one raw course that was a fail. The rest of the courses were excellent. I love small plates and I love the sister restaurant Alden and Harlow, but did not think our dining experience was worth the $$. The food was excellent, but very very small portions. The atmosphere was loud and the service was only ok (especially for the price paid). Had the rest of the atmosphere been on point, I probably wouldn't have cared that the small plates were so small/$.
The food overall was good. However, our service was so slow that once our dishes were served our food tasted as if it had been under a heat lamp for quite some time as the food tasted dried out. We also ordered a bottle of wine and it took almost a half hour for it to be brought to our table. Our server apologized for her poor service, however we felt as if we were "forgotten" throughout our meal. The service was so slow that by the time we left the restaurant we were hungry, again. Had the food been served in a respectable time frame, there is no way that we would have left the restaurant slightly hungry. On a positive note, the oysters on half shell were some of the best we ever had eaten. I understand things "happen" which can delay service, however for the high marks Waypoint has been awarded we were very disappointed and embarrassed in front of the guests we asked to join us. I hope this was just an unusual "hiccup" for Waypoint and wish the restaurant the best of luck in the future.
Visiting Boston from NY and was dying to try Michael Scelfo’s restaurant. So proud of you, Michael!
Cocktails are one of the highlights here. Make sure not to miss having a couple.
Oysters were really good
Lobster tail was decent but a really small tail :-)
Highlight of the meal was salmon crudo and soup dumpling
Definitely worth a couple of visits
Holy cow. We were staying near the North End and wanted a place for brunch that wasn’t going to be peppered by tourists. A quick T Ride to the Harvard stop proved completely worth it. The smoked peel and eat shrimp with the buttermilk sauce and house made saltines is something not to be missed. Bucatini with poached egg and bacon... oysters, both on the half shell and chicken fried with grits. Cocktails were inspired and the wine list was super interesting and well thought-out.
This might be one of my top five favorite restaurants in the country.
Outstanding brunch with an excellent service staff. We want to go back for lunch and a dinner during future visits to Cambridge
Excellent food with top notch service. We tried a wide variety of appetizers and plates all with incredible presentations and amazing flavors.
Absolutely amazing experience. The smoked bluefish, uni bucatini, tuna crudo, and grilled octopus were all mouth-wateringly delicious and thoughtfully constructed. And somehow their just-as-excellent cocktails paired well with every dish! Dessert (blueberry and corn panna cotta) was the perfect capstone to one of the best meals I've had in ages. Would give 10/5 stars if I could. If you like seafood, you owe it to yourself to eat at Waypoint.
At the price point it should 'wow' and it didn't. Drinks were OK, food was OK. You pay a lot for mediocrity here.
When you spread chocolate ganache thinly on a plate, providing a soft doughnut to scrape it up, most of that chocolate will travel back to the kitchen. I like chocolate a lot. This style over substance and comfort choice is representative. The menu is an origami project, with no recognizable logic to where to find what, with small print in soft lighting - topped off by the waitress which expected us to follow her high speed race through recommendations as if we were world record holders in folding swans. The dishes tasted okay, but felt similarly over-engineered - like, who makes a dumpling that's too big for the dipping sauce plate? The ambiance is nice.
Katie is the best server ever! And never get rid of the uni bucatini!
So good!! every meal was delicious and the service was excellent. The green lighting definitely sets the mood
For the second time that I had dined at Waypoint and loved it very much. The server, I can't remember her name was fantastic (beautiful Asian girl), very knowledgeable about the food and the wine.
Great food tons of options and I highly recommend it.
Waypoint is worth traveling for. Both the service and the food are great - I highly recommend the tartare and the uni bucatini. Only real disappointment was the pizza that was pretty boring and so excessively covered in garlic that no other ingredients were identifiable. Mentioned to the waiter that it was pretty hard to eat and in return he just wrapped up the pizza so I could take it home.
The lobster cacio e pepe is out of this world. My daughter and I ordered two pastas and a salad to share, and the staff was very accommodating in terms of supplying us with extra plates. Delicious oysters and helpful wine recommendation.
Birthday celebration dinner
We had such a fun evening at Waypoint. Our servers were welcoming and helpful with our large group. Back soon!
I Love Alden & Harlow, and have been very excited to try Waypoint. The menu was creative, however I wasn’t blown away by any of the dishes we tried: fish sticks, Char belly and octopus Polpetti. Everything was ok, but didn’t exceed my expectations as I was I thought it would.
Outstanding Service and To-Die-For Food. Great cocktails, perfect place to celebrate an anniversary or go on a date. Wonderful Staff. Would def recommend and would definitely go back.
Everything was great, except for the AV was too strong, and they were not able to change me to a warmer area which was not directly below the AC. I strongly requested to be changed, for I was really freezing, but they were not able to accommodate my request. It is very unfortunate.
Always one of my favorites and the menu is constantly changing.
Uni Bucatini all the way - fantastic dish. Great wine program and service.
Really amazing food, flavours and freshness! Wow :)
Wonderfully crafted small plates expertly paired with not-your-run-of the-mill wines. Well paced and presented. We had a blast!
