Season To Taste is a neighborhood restaurant with covered patio tables outside, each equipped with fans, and semi private tables inside. Our frequently changing a la carte menu utilizes locally-sourced ingredients and features Chef Robert Harris' globally-inspired flavors ( we no longer offer a four course tasting menu). We serve small producer/ minimal-intervention wines and local craft beers.
Due to the small size of our restaurant, guest have a 90-120 minute window in which you may occupy the table for your meal. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with this.

Free Parking at Bright Horizons, 2465 Mass ave. Cambridge has removed all metered parking and loading zones on Mass ave, so this is also the best address to get dropped of if traveling by ride share.

If you need to cancel your reservation we do ask for 24 hours notice, and you can reach us to do so at 617-945-9535.

    We had an exquisite dinner at Season to Taste. Each dish was beautifully presented and so delicious. We shared the wild mushrooms on toast to start. Amazing fragrance and tastes from the woods in late summer. For entrees we had the swordfish, cooked perfectly in a compote of quinoa and summer vegetables, and the fried quail, so tender it fell off the bone. The wine by the glass selection is limited, but adequate. Sadly, we couldn’t manage dessert. But don’t skip the honey-thyme biscuit! We will be back, for sure.

    The appetizer menu was so great that I decided to have 2 appetizers. I had Yellow Fin Tuna Crudo and 24 Hour Pork Ribs. Both were fabulous and filled me up. I had a great glass of Cab. I also couldn't resist dessert. I had flourless chocolate cake and it was totally yummy! Great chef and restaurant.

    The food at Season to taste is fabulous. The restaurant is small but that kitchen turns out a varied and creative menu. Can’t wait for the move to a larger space is made, but as noted it is small but mighty! Crispy sweetbreads were totally delectable perfectly cooked pieces of sweet breads with shaved slices of celery and carrot on a tasty aioli dressing and mushroom toasts piled with a variety of sautéed mushrooms on lightly toasted bread were shared before our main courses of Roasted Cod and Gas Station fried quail. Both dishes were wonderful. Service was terrific. The wine selection reflects the rising prices of wine but excellent selections including tempting by the glass listings is on the mark of something memorable to accompany this wonderful food!

    Would highly recommend to anyone. Smart, original menu, relaxing atmosphere, thoughtful beer and wine list. I had the sweetbreads among others. Loved the comfort twist on a French classic. Very meta. The post-covid outdoor seating is great too. Fun place.

    The food that we ordered was delicious and original from conception to presentation. The ribs and crab cake were excellent starters. The roast chicken entree was rich in a delicate pan sauce accompanied by a crepe filled with porcini confit. The outdoor cabanas offer a wonderful alternative to sitting indoors. We have always enjoyed our dining experiences at Season to Taste, and plan to be back again soon.

    Known for their catering we were excited to try the restaurant and so glad we did. Outdoor seating is great Each table is separated by canvas drapes - fan or heater if needed. The food is the star - we had the gnocchi, mushroom toast, fries, swordfish, arepa, and flourless chocolate cake - every dish has a wonderful taste-the sweetness of the micro greens to the infused oils. Great service and nice wine list. Highly recommend to food explorers.

    One of the best meals we’ve had in a long time. We opted for a selection of starters to share (like small plates). The portion sizes were very generous for sharing. This allowed us to sample a variety of dishes, all of which were excellent.

    The choices we made were either tasty or disappointing. The strangest was the fried clam dish. Absolutely wrong texture and taste. The rigatoni had a flat taste. The artichoke was very disappointing. I make them myself and I found the presentation pretty silly. The Mexican corn and burrata dish was delicious, as was the crab cake, biscuit, and pork ribs.

    The partitioned booths outside were a handy way for us to dine outside on a sidewalk with some privacy. The street became part of the charm. The food and service were excellent….far better than i expected for a small, slightly remote venue on Mass Ave. High end casual. We will return soon!

    A true neighborhood gem! We ate in one of the "cabanas" outside, so some traffic noise, but private. The food here is unfailingly excellent and the service is friendly and helpful. Sadly, they will soon be moving from North Cambridge, though not too far off. One of my absolute favorite restaurants!

    As usual, the food was very good and the price fair. It has been a favorite of ours for some time and we will be back. The service was off a bit - the food came out slowly, the waitstaff was a bit distracted, and we were rushed at the end to vacate despite there being no diners behind us. We hope and expect those issues won't recur.

    This restaurant is fabulous. All our dishes were executed perfectly. For starter, we shared Mexican Street Corn Burrata with chipotle aioli, tempura squash blossom, green chili. So tasty and innovative. For our main, Husband had the Pork Schnitzel with german potato salad, purple cabbage, cucumber & dill salad. I had Gas Station Fried Quail with collard greens, bacon, cole slaw, crystal hot sauce beurre bland. So good. This is the type of food one goes to a restaurant for. Using seasonal food in a unique way. I am so glad we discovered this restaurant. Will be back.
