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.

As much as it pains me to say this, we were disappointed by our experience here. Don't get me wrong, the food was good, and the service was excellent. But, for the price point, we were expecting a little bit more. The food was good, but the flavors were too delicate. It just felt like there was something that was missing. I wasn't expecting to get hit in the mouth with flavor, but it just felt one dimensional. The one exception was the butternut squash tortellini. That was our favorite dish. And not that I wouldn't eat that meal any day of the week, but for what we had, like I said, the price point was a little high.

We love the restaurant and this is our fourth time dining at The Table.
Both of us felt that the meal was not as outstanding as our previous dining experiences.
We also noticed a large price increase so we would most likely only return for special occasions.

The food was excellent and the staff was lovely--and super accommodating for someone with celiac. The standout of the meal though was the wine pairings, they hit it out of the park! It's certainly not the cheapest place to dine out, but it was completely worth it for the experience. Can't wait to go back!

This may be the best meal I’ve ever had. It was so delicious. We sat at the chef’s counter and the staff was lovely. The food was meticulously prepared and every single thing was out of this world. I’ve never been so obsessed with every course the way I was here. We did the wine pairing and the whole meal was perfect and absolutely worth the price. Go. Just go.

Wonderful restaurant tucked away on Mass Ave. Fantastic food over 4 courses with a vegetarian option for each course. All the options were great (as we got opposite ones from each other). Highly recommended. Hope this place never, ever closes! It's not cheap - but it's worth every penny. A Paris type Bistro right in Cambridge.

The service was excellent and attentive, without being disruptive. One of the dishes (congee) was very highly spiced (red peppery), so much so that it overpowered the dish. It would have been useful if the server had let us know, in advance, about the 'heat' in the dish. Other than that, each dish was nicely flavored.

I love this place - I have been there 3 times! This time, the food was not quite as consistently great as it has been the previous two times, There were some wonderful things - the tasting turnip pear soup I thought was pretty remarkable, but I wasn't crazy about the Octopus entree - it just lacked cohesion, somehow.

All in all, this is a great place and well worth exploring.

There is an interesting vibe when you walk in the door of this unassuming gem. We were fortunate enough to get a set at the kitchen counter, and Chef Carl and his team were happy to engage in conversation while working to get the orders out. The menu is limited to two choices per course, but the team is willing to accommodate dietary changes (like vegan and vegetarian meals). The team of three chefs danced and performed flawlessly in a tight space, plating out beautiful courses. Chef Carl uses an intriguing mix of local ingredients, European flair, with some Asian touches. Every course sang with wit, whimsy, and outstanding flavor. We're looking to visit next time we're in Boston.

We had an absolutely spectacular deal And experienc at The table restaurant. Every dish was eligible he presented and created. The only disappointment was that they did not have an espresso/cappuccino maker. Otherwise it was close to perfection. It was but inexpensive But it was very reasonable for both the quality quantity of both the meal and the wine pairing.

Great food and we did include the wine pairing with our meal - we highly recommend adding the wine pairing to the menu. Really unique and perfectly paired wines. This is a farm-to-table spot with a four course prix fix meal with two choices for each. We ordered both choices and shared all the dishes.
