I've been to Waypoint several times and have always had great food and service experiences! The staff is friendly and attentive but not too invasive, and also make good food recommendations. The bar has a great cocktail selection. For brunch, I recommend the irish coffee and donuts. For dinner, make sure to try the clam pizza and branzino.
My husband and I came here for a pre-event dinner and were super impressed! We sat at the bar where the service was impeccable. We shared some $1 oysters (which were surprisingly tasty for being $1), the clam pizza (out of this world, the best clam pizza I've ever tried), and a farro and crab salad (fresh, light and flavorful). Given the quality of the food and drink, I thought the cost was quite reasonable, especially for Boston standards. Our bill was hardly more than a couple of burgers and beers would be at other area restaurants. We will definitely be back.
It was wonderful - food and ambiance fantastic!
This place never disappoints. We brought out-of-town friends who were just wowed by the individuality of the dishes, the multiple delicious tastes in every dish, etc.
Waypoint provided wonderful food and highly trained waitstaff. Really glad we came here.
I highly recommend this restaurant!
Six of us in on a Sunday evening, early (6:30). Had reservations, got seated promptly. We go out quite a bit, and have been to Alden and Harlow over a dozen times. Excited to try Waypoint.
Ordered 2 dozen oysters right away, as we were waiting for our party to arrive (all got there within the next 5 minutes). Oysters landed, delicious. We ordered the rest of our meal with the server before the oysters were even off the table. Then, the long wait. Ordered two of the 'roasts' ("for 2-3 people"), the large size vegetable roast and the branzino fish, two pastas, a pizza, 4 appetizers... all on top of the oysters.
The food came very very slowly, and seriously? The fish, once filleted, was enough for perhaps one very sated person. The vegetable roast had possibly 7 chunks of veggies (oh good, one quarter beet each!). Much hype, little sustenance.
The server realized we had been waiting ages, for these few morsels to arrive, and arranged for us to get free dessert. So in the end, we all felt mildly ill as we filled ourselves with donuts and cake, since we were all still hungry.
Nope, never again.
Very hip but approachable ambiance, kind of makes you forget that you’re in Boston!
The angel hair blue crab was excellent. Would go back.
Uni & Caviar Toast and the Blue crab Angel Hair are the must-have dishes.
Loved the cocktails, the food, the vibe. Will definitely return.
It was Great!
Fantastically prepared dishes, unique, imaginative flavors and outstanding service. We really enjoyed our experience.
Food and service is fantastic! Congratulations Waypoint team! Hospitality at it's finest. Kitchen killed it!
Easter Brunch, great cinnamon roll, meh donuts, great sparkling wine.
We loved Waypoint! Every morsel of food was delicious. We were there for brunch and we got the bread sampler and patatas bravas as appetizers for 4 people and then ordered mains. I got the lobster roll with pickle chips and I love it. The pickle chips are very thinly sliced pickles that are battered and fried. Everyone at the table was "helping" me eat them. The oysters and waffles were amazing. The ricotta blintzes were also fantastic.
The outside of the restaurant looks bland but once you're inside, it's welcoming and eclectic. The staff was attentive and friendly. Overall, a top notch experience!
First time at Waypoint for brunch, and like all other meals I’ve had there, it didn’t disappoint. The only problem is choosing what to order and not overeating because you want to try everything. We had the avocado and shrimp toast, ricotta blintzes, and because it was Easter, the donut with a homemade Peep on top. Too cute!
Very disappointed except lamb pizza
That was good not too much cheese no lamb meat smell would recommend it but this is the end Of good things
Hamburger was disaster it was almost McDonald s double burger plus little more condiments did not have any meat taste
Beyond that menu you need to read before you go to see if it fits to your adventures
There were no salad appetizer either
Outstanding menu and food quality. Wide selection of meat, fish, and veggie options. Everything was great. Pretty affordable to try different dishes as well.
Waypoint was absolutely phenomenal! The food is inventive/delicious. The waitress was thoughtful and paced the meal so that we felt we could savor every morsel...which we wanted to do!
Service was overall good but waitress forgot to bring us the coffee we had ordered.
Bartender was less that friendly to say the least, but our server was friendly and informative.
I went to Waypiont with my spouse for a meal before a show at the Sanders Theater on the Harvard campus. The restaurant offers a number of savory plates offered in a bistro environment. There are some large portions, but most plates are portioned at a level that might be ‘tapas plus’—enough to share but still not a full entree serving. There is the (mandatory) burger, and one or two other meat offerings, but the substantial majority of offerings are in the seafood category. But while the offerings are in the seafood category, the flavors across the plates vary quite widely across a wide range, and as a meat eater I was very happy to find a number of seafood offering that have rich and savory flavors. The service was prompt and knowledgeable (waitress made excellent recommendations, and immediately and authoritatively answered all ingredient questions from my lactose intolerant dinner companion.) The crowd was youthful, but not undergraduate. The bistro atmosphere was also friendly and casual, just what we were looking for prior to the show. Driving and parking in Cambridge is . . . what it is. We enjoyed our meal and will go back.
Good and creative see food variety. Kid-friendly.
Our waitress was amazing, she was extremely helpful with any menu questions and wine pairings/recommendations and was very professional. The manager visited us at the table and was also lovely. I have already highly recommended friends to go and try it if they haven’t already and will continue to do so!
Absolutely delicious food, fantastic service. Worth every penny
Waypoint impressed with not only the selection and quality of food, but the overall experience as well. Staff were friendly and helpful, and we really enjoyed our experience. Good for a night out with family, friends, or for a date.
It is really a wonderful restaurant overall. Great food, great service. A true gem.
Lamb Roast was the best lamb we have ever had!!
also loved the roasted vegetables. Our chicken was a little dry but otherwise flavoring was delicious. The waitstaff were great
Amazing! Great service and food.
Wonderful atmosphere and great service. Our waitress Kathryn was phenomenal with great advice about wine and food pairings.
I had a very good time with my friends. Food was very good, but small portions.
Great drinks. Fun waitress. Parsnip humus was divine , Arctic char ditto, pizza less so.
Great place to eat and drink
Great food and ambiance! Will be back when we are in the area.
We went for brunch. Terrible from start to finish. Disorganized and disinterested waitstaff. It started with cocktails that took forever to come, accompanied by 2 dozen oysters- 2 of which were "bad". The pizzas were soggy and covered with raw garlic and oil. The bacon was barely cooked and when we asked to have it cooked more, it came back evaporated. The burgers came without the bacon that was supposed to be on them and the covered with a coleslaw that is not mentioned on the menu. Gross- coleslaw does not belong on a beef burger. The arugula salad that accompanied the frittata was so salty it was inedible. The pancakes came with shriveled up blueberries and were cold. It was $300 for 5 people. Never returning.
I had an awesome brunch - will be coming back!
Estefania was one of the best servers I’ve had in years
good menu and drinks. waiter was very friendly, and ambience it top notch.
An interesting place. The food was good, but it was costly in comparison with other restaurants of the class
Menu is weird. Many of the small plates that are supposed to be for sharing are hard to divide, like a fish filet, or there are 3 pieces, impossible to divide by 4. And they are SMALL servings. The chef should make up his mind and go one way or the other. Many items make more sense as entree’s. Also my pasta with crab was very dry with just barely enough toppings. I should have sent it back. Waiter was friendly, helpful and wine steward was excellent. Not sure I’d go back.
