We went for lunch. Great food , atmosphere and service. Never had cauliflower in a pizza before, it was delicious. I had a farro dish and my husband had the fish. Everything was great. I will be back. Downsides: hard to find parking at lunchtime ( evening they have valet) , unisex bathrooms. Hate them.
The food was delicious. I had no complaints.
The brunch menu is great—recognizably “brunchy” but with some really interesting twists. The Okonomiyaki Waffle was off the hook.
Bucatini VERY VERY VERY salty
Service was great. Apps were really good
Wonderful service and delicious ingenious dishes. Lobster toast was divine.
I loved it. The food was delicious and our waitress was fabulous. I have already told many people about it. Hoping to come back for my birthday next week.
We are regular patrons at Waypoint. During our last visit, we ordered ribeye steaks to our preferences. It took them more than half an hour to bring the food. The steaks came out to be very dry and chewy. When we reported this, our server brought in one scoop of plain ice cream for the table to share and eat. We asked him to take it away. This was almost like an insult to us. There was no compensation and the manager did not even bother to come and talk to us.
Waypoint is always a great time with delicious food and good vibes!
One of the best restaurants in metro Boston! We love the table sharing plates and entrees.
Very good seafood, energetic environment and nice service.
Hiramasa, Yellow tail ,crudo was great, very nice presentation and mix flavors.
The tuna tartare was good, fresh.
Kenny’s bread had a nice mixture of breads and seaweed butter and squid ink dip.
Pasta uni bucatini was very tasty and creamy.
The smoked mackerel was amazing, great mix of flavors and textures with scallions and eggs and miso.
The drinks were quite expensive, we ordered a shot of vodka on ice with limes ( and other order w slice orange) and they charged as a martini drink.
Coffee and dessert were ok. The crostata of the day was banana
Plates were smaller than I would have expected for the price, but delicious nonetheless!
Cacio e Pepe was just ok and hamburger was STRANGLEY chewy.
Delicious and inventive food and drinks, always some novelties.
Excellent, creative food, wine and cocktails. Sharing plates best way to experience cuisine.
I love Waypoint. When I want to be sure that I'll get a delicious meal, I come to Waypoint. The food is so beautifully prepared and beautifully balanced, and their flavors will knock your socks off! If I ever have friends come to Boston from out-of-town, this is where I go. And I hope that Waypoint is around for years and years to come :)
Food specifics: My friends and I got the Bucatini with Poached Egg, and we were all swooning. The crudo was excellent. I have also had the Squid Ink pasta which is excellent. I mean, really, any pasta from here is amazing.
Staff was friendly. Food was brought out cold.
Great, interesting food and wonderful cocktails. $1 oysters were a surprise and a great. Bartenders were serious pros. We sat at the bar rather than a table and found it just as comfortable. Definitely will go back.
Went for new year’s day brunch, had a great time!
NYE - great atmosphere
Expensive but tastes really amazing!
Great selection of small plates. Sharing with 4 people allows many options. Nice wine list.
Interesting menu - lots of good choices. Great drinks. Service was sporadic - our waitress was quite inattentive which was surprising because it wasn't super busy. The servers were really good though
Great seafood and cocktails. Wonderful service, attentive but not overbearing and very knowledgeable. Will be coming back!
So good! Went twice already and loved it each time. Highly recommend the lobster pasta! It was nice that they even offer gluten free pasta for my family who is intolerant.
The food was great. And we loved our waitress Molly, who was so friendly, timely, knowledgeable, and helpful. Oh, we did think the halibut was a bit overcooked, but tasty nonetheless.
The food, the staff, the seats, the drinks. I can’t say enough good things about Waypoint. This restaurant may be the reason I don’t leave Cambridge.
Fabulous brunch! Will definitely be back. Great food.
Awesome food! Amazing Mezcal cocktail. Cacio e Pepe lobster pasta was dope.
Wonderful spot. Made our way in from the white bread suburbs and was so worth it. The menu is creative, focused and well curated. Not all things to all diners, but excellent execution on each of the numerous seafood things we tried. We had a high booth adjacent to the kitchen line, a great location if you like cooking and enjoy dining as part theater experience. The staff clearly enjoyed what they were doing and it showed in both the service and the food. The one issue I had was the eye-watering drink pricing. $10-12 draft beers, really? Will definitely go back and bring friends, but might grab that first drink down the street first.
Service from the kitchen was a bit slow, the server was aware and apologetic. It's lunch, so you'd expect it to be a bit quicker, especially when most people have time constraints on business days.
The food was good. Some inconsistencies in the french fries (overdone and small broken pieces on one order). The tuna on the sandwich was fishy and the texture seemed off, the benton's bacon added for an additional cost was the saving grace. Hot/Cold Lobster and Burger were great.
Overall, it was a bit underwhelming given the caliber of seafood restaurants in the city.
Excellent! Love y’all every time we come in -pair of neighbors
Creative interesting food beautifully presented.
Cosy atmosphere on a chilly night
We will be back!
Everything was great except the seating next to the kitchen which was 100 degrees!
The brunch menu offers some interesting items other than the usual breakfast items like eggs, pancakes and sausage etc. The donuts are really good. It was great for our family getting together.
Highly recommended! Excellent food and service!!!
Looking at the menu one could think Waypoint was a little precious; in reality there is no novelty for novelty’s sake. I was so pleasantly surprised by our meal. Everything was exquisite. Highly recommend.
While this was a birthday celebration during the week, I was impressed with our server. Very good. The food is pricey. For four of us, we were over $200 pre-tip. That is without lots of alcohol. Appetizers, main meal, dessert add up quick here.
The lobster toast is good but small. Crab Fries are great for an appetizer. The Lobster tail was tiny but good. The Caclo Pepe was very good. The crab and angel hair pasta was overwhelmed by the jalapenos which is too bad. The cheesecake was good. The donuts were great.
Overall, nice meal but not sure about running back.
Delicious food and cool atmosphere. The cocktails and mocktails were creative and tasty. We had oysters, the lobster toast, smoked char belly, and ribeye. All were exceptional.
