We had a great evening here for a business dinner. Everyone loved their food, very attentive service and relaxed atmosphere. We even made room for dessert and weren't disappointed. Hoping for a reason to return.

We celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary on Sunday with tapas at one of our favorite spots in Cambridge. The servers were friendly and efficient as always, the food was outstanding. We always love the food any day of the week but we really love the Sunday tapas menu. The food always meets our high expectations and even exceeds them. Keep... More

We were referred by our Innkeeper and glad that he did. My husband is usually wary about “French” restaurants but we had a fabulous experience. We ordered cocktails and my Jameson and the Giant Peach was one of the best cocktails I have had. He had the onion soup and I had escargots to start. Mine was terrific and lots... More

A group of seven went for a business dinner on a Monday evening. The wait staff looked young, but could not have been more attentive or efficient. The food was praised by everyone at the table. The beer list had numerous craft beers, local and international. The restaurant was almost full, but not so loud that we couldn't have a... More

We are staying in Easton and made the 20 minute drive over to Cambridge. The restaurant is lovely and the food even better. We started with the best French onion soup I have ever had. One of our party ordered the smoked chicken thighs....said they were phenomenal. I had the shrimp creole....presented deconstructed and seasoned to perfection. Lastly someone had... More

I have been to Bistro Poplar about five times and the food has always been very good. On my last visit 7/6//2015 I had the roasted salmon with curried fingerling potatoes and palak paneer (an Indian dish made with spinach and cheese.) It was exceptional. I don't say this lightly but it was one of the best entrees I have... More

We were staying in a local B&B whose owners recommended this restaurant. It could not have been a better suggestion. We made reservations (needed) and were seated promptly. The menu has one inviting item after another. Natalie, our server helped my wife negotiate the menu in keeping with her low salt needs. My wife settled on the pork loin and... More

Quaint French restaurant, we had an 8:30 reservation for 4, felt a little rushed because they were trying to close by 10p which we hadn't been told. The food and service was great but be would have relaxed and enjoyed every bite if they hadn't closed so ealy on a Sat. night. We felt it was a little pricey but... More
