This place is very special. Food is amazing as is atmosphere. I realize that all places are short staffed now but 20 minutes to get a cocktail after we ordered and it came after our Salads arrived is frustrating. Otherwise definitely recommend highly.
Excellent innovative edited menu; well executed by the kitchen. Good drinks.
Great unconventional food, friendly service reasonably priced. Overall excellent place for dinner and drinks
Waypoint is our favorite restaurant in town. Highly recommend it!
Another wonderful, prolonged early dinner at Waypoint. Oysters on special, smelts, clam pizza, salmon, a really good steak, expertly made cocktails, and a great wine list made for an excellent afternoon. Delicious robiola and truffle ravioli needed half a minute more cooking and the crab pasta needed a bit more crab, but that's nit-picking. Max tended bar and educated me to new absinthes. Noise level was a little high at the bar, but I'm older and a little hard of hearing -- probably wouldn't bother the average diner. We'll return often. An underappreciated jewel of a restaurant functioning at a very high level both in food and in service.
Music a little loud.
Varied menu accommodates group with varied tastes
Touted s a seafood restaurant, we expected a substantial number of choices of FISH. We were sorely disappointed, so much so that we would wound up ordering pizzas. (You'll never make it asa a pizzeria!)
Food is very good including oysters and the main plates. But the portions of their main plates are tiny and so was their desserts.
The problem with the evening occurred when our servers forgot about us and we had to forgo our drink/dessert orders and ask other employees for the check. I understand that COVID-19 has impacted the service industry by removing seasoned professionals. However, it's not a high bar to just check on patrons.
The menu features some imaginatively prepared food that we greatly enjoyed. The roasted striped bass on the cucumber panzanella was unbelievably delicious. The cacio e pepe with lobster was amazing.
My main concern was the wine list. The markup on these wines was very high. What's going on with this? A bottle of 25 or 30 dollar wine at retail, cost 125 to 150. It makes dining here a very expensive proposition. There ought to be several wines priced accessibly. We had the Greek xinomavro which went beautifully with the food, was a good wine, ample acid and lowish alcohol at a price of $45. More of these should be possible knowing that there is so much good wine out there that doesn't cost your mortgage.
Service was fantastic, drinks were great. Food was very good, but the only reason I’m writing this is because the pizzas have never been to the quality level they were at pre-COVID. The clam pizza, especially, has far less topping and the crust bottom is never crisp enough — but we used to love it so much that we keep trying.
Delicious food and very nice ambiance, waiter was ok... I still recommend this place
Ingrid was so wonderful, genuine and a great server.
perfectly cooked and seasoned salmon and unusual but tasty side of frisee with fried chickpeas and grapes.
great spot to grab dinner and drinks! cool atmosphere and friendly staff. Exposed kitchen is a nice touch!
Exquisite gourmet dishes
For our first time we enjoyed it very much. Liked the ambience and the decor
one of, if not the best, restaurant in Cambridge. The food was AMAZING cannot recommend highly enough.
Incredible service, but food was a bit overpriced for what it was (particularly the oysters). The mainstay dish of roasted egg yolk, uni, and thick udon noodles is certainly a must-have.
great neighborhood location... limited menu offers choices. loved the small plates.
We started with the oysters and would highly recommend. The drinks were good (although small pours on a glass of wine), the bartender was friendly and helpful answering questions (but again, small pours on the wine). I ordered the Johan Crab & Angel hair pasta and there was only one piece of crab in it... I would not recommend this one to anyone, it wasn't elevated and honestly something you could have made at home. My partner ordered the steak frites. The filet was good, not amazing, the fries though! The fries were great! Overall, if we went back, we would get the oysters, fries and a drink and skip everything else.
Tony is awesome
outdoor street side was fun, very open to passerbys.
"family style" arrival of food fine by us.
The bar makes particularly good drinks; better "value" than food cost, although both high quality.
Server Sydney was near perfect!
Outdoor dining was fun and fine.
Me er disappoints!
We waited over an hour for our food and ended up leaving
No apologies and of course we were charged for our drink an appetizer after waiting for one hour for our main course that never arrived
Outstanding service, interesting menu, great food.
indoor tables seemed a little too close for comfort so we ate outdoors. Seating was great and it was a perfect night to in the fresh air. French fries here a favorite of ours.
Great spot, great food and wine and the service was excellent
Everyone working there was wonderful and the food was delicious.
Very good food
Love Waypoint! Interesting and tasty menu options. Only con was the clam pizza and brussel sprout pizza tasted too similar. This was my second time here and I will be coming back.
great oysters and wine selection, unremarkable and overpriced main dishes
The food was great - the lobster cacio e pepe is fantastic, and although it can be shared, I wanted it all to myself. The service was poor, which can probably be chalked up to the pandemic labor shortage. We told our server we wanted to order wine with our meal, but then she didn't come until we had finished our meal. A glass of wine never showed up and the quirky wine list didn't have any matches to our white wine drinkers' tastes (even if the customers' tastes run to commoditized wines like pinot grigio, it would be nice to have an offering that answers those tastes even if it's not an actual pinot grigio). And even though the host knew we were celebrating a birthday, the server dropped the ball on that (despite a gift bag on the table).
Very nice restaurant, enjoyed the food. They were accommodating to move us inside when we asked because it was cold. We ordered the zucchini knots thinking it would be our vegetable side but it was actually like garlic pizza bread knots with just a tiny bit of zucchini- clarifying the description would be helpful. Also, the servers were not wearing masks which made me somewhat uncomfortable. The whitefish pizza was alright, the house salad was very large, tasty and a great deal, and the mussels pasta was very tasty though a small portion. Overall would recommend.
Nice food, recommend Tapas style, good wines, pleasant and helpful service
As always, the servers were attentive. The food was delicious. If I had only one last meal, it would be the uni bucatini.
Best french fries in Boston. crab caesar salad expensive but worth it. Noise low enough for OK conversation. Great front of house staff and operation.
It’s a good food, fresh seafood and elegant dishes
The place is sort of cavernous. A bit on the loud side, but OK.
I liked the food and service. My lobster was wonderful; my wife's fish was tender and moist. Fried Brussel sprouts - bountiful. Our server really went out of his way to make us comfortable. My only complaint - too much salt on everything! Attention Mr. Chef: easy on the salt, amigo.
