Contemporary French / American
An eclectic twenty seat restaurant featuring seating overlooking the open kitchen and an intimate environment. Chef Carl Dooley utilizes French techniques to showcase both seasonal ingredients and international flavors in his four-course prix fixe menus. In addition, there is a menu of light snacks and à la carte dishes paired with choice wines and craft beers at the standing wine bar.

Please note, specific tables may be requested but cannot be guaranteed.

Reservations highly recommended. Prompt arrivals requested, as we cannot guarantee seating when diners are delayed by more than 15 minutes. Private parties can also be arranged upon request. We recommend booking these at least three months in advance.

First and foremost, this is an amazing place. The care and creativity that goes into each individual dish are unmatched anywhere, at any price. With this said, we were (2 couples) very disappointed in a couple of things. Our reservation was scheduled for 8:15 pm. We sat down at around 9:00 pm. It's not supposed to work that way. There should be two seatings - period! At no time did any member of the staff come over to us while we sat in the corner next to the window to offer us water, a beverage of any kind, let alone a kind word. I'm sorry, there is just no excuse to ignore customers waiting in your restaurant to spend $500. This was our 3rd time at the restaurant. The food has always been excellent and this last time was no exception. Given the success and popularity of the restaurant, I think the time has come for the owners to address service and ambiance issues.

Excellent food. Wine pairings were perfect 75% of the time. The mencia and albarino were disappointing. Overall a magnificient experience and a great value.

The menu of items allowed people to go light or more hearty.Each dish was prepared with great attention to detail and the elements were presented very well; color, texture, flavor, savory all in balance. The ceviche and the lemon agnolotti received the most praise but the curried chicken and lamb were also outstanding. Personally, I liked the price set with tax and gratuity included. While the wines by the glass were good they do not need to be 15-17/gl.

Exceeded our high expectations. Food was phenomenal, and at least on this particular night, had plenty of heat. Truly enjoyed the warm and friendly service, which made us feel right at home on our first visit. Truly our new favorite restaurant in the Boston area. Best advice? Order one of everything and share. My wife doesn’t like lamb at all, but to our surprise, fell completely in love with the lamb carpaccio. You won’t be disappointed.

Very nice restaurant. Interesting and unusual food, surprisingly spicy with unusual combinations. Price is reasonable. Service excellent, enthusiastic and accommodating. Definitely worth a visit.

Food was very good with some intense flavors. The lamb appetizer was excellent. The price is high for the food that was served. Wine was pretty good and very expensive

Unfortunately, there wasn't much air conditioning. So despite the amazing food, the experience was less than optimal and not especially comfortable.

Excellent 4 course tasting menu with nicely varied choices to choose from at each course. The wine pairing was interesting, informatively presented, and well matched to the food. Overall an outstanding experience with wonderful food and service.

Starting from being greeted from the host right through dessert it was one of the best culinary experiences I have ever had in the greater Boston area.
Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and was able to walk us through it all. I suggest if you are a party of two just get the whole menu and share it, because there is not a single course that disappoints.

The place is charming, the service is wonderful, but the food was uneven. Our favorite dishes were the starters--lamb crudo and red snapper ceviche. An interesting mix of textures, flavors, and heat. The Jonah crab curry and grilled octopus were also excellent. We were less impressed with the gnocchi with blue cheese (too heavy), the jerk chicken (overly spiced, undercooked, and garnished with flavors that didn't mesh well together), and both desserts (which just weren't that interesting). One thing that was surprising to us was that all of the (non-dessert) dishes were spicy (to varying degrees)--although we both like spicy food, this felt like too much of the same thing.

The Table never fails to disappoint. The food is outstanding, the wine parings spot on and the service gracious and welcoming. The highlight of my dinner was the charred octopus -- perfectly prepared and delicious! Can't wait to see what's next on their menu!

I came into the meal with no expectations and left in awe of what had occurred. The freshness of the ingredients was outstanding; the sauces and seasoning for the food was a perfect complement to the main ingredient of each dish. The ambiance of the restaurant transported me far away from Boston to what felt like a friends counter at a rustic home. I cannot wait to go back for another meal.

This is the best restaurant in Cambridge. The food is incredibly delicious and complex, but is not pretentious. Actually that's true of the place overall - the service is great but also not pretentious. It's a perfect special-occasion restaurant.

Dining at The Table was a great night out- it was a tasting menu but you're definitely not going to go home hungry. They employee a knowledgable staff that cares about your experience and pay them a living wage which is the kind of place I want to support. Thanks to the staff for a great date night!

This was our second visit and it was as good as the first dining experience. It was an outstanding culinary experience. The dishes are creative, fresh and very tasty. The kitchen is in the same space as the dining area which makes the dining experience very authentic and inclusive. The service personal and friendly. We will return.
