We really enjoyed the atmosphere as it had the décor of the 1920's and the "flapper's". Waiters and waitresses were in 1920 period clothing. The food was wonderful and we shared small plates. I must say this is not a cheap place and in fact it was an expensive night out.

Another Boston/Cambridge restaurant completely over-rated. Lovely setting and friendly staff. Service was a bizarre experience and slow. Being overly friendly, doesn't equal good service. Took an age to get bread and get served and we were forgotten a few times. Menu looks great but food is a let down. It just passes but for the price, should be a lot... More

Food is delicious and drink are amazing, tthe waiters are professional and friendly, their outfits are so cool and in general this restaurant provides a great experience, but be ready to open your wallet because food is expensive and portions are tiny.

This restaurant is so distinctive and unusual. The menu is extremely creative; the food is elegantly presented and the food is exquisite. My son is a foodie who knows how to pick great restaurants. I got to take him here for his birthday, and we were both thoroughly pleased. We shared the following: White Gazpacho ( a delicious cold cucumber... More

but I like the description by another reviewer as "international small plates" an eclectic atmosphere and an eclectic collection of dishes from around the world. I thought it was a bit overpriced given the portion sizes. the nice thing about the variety of foods is that if you don't share, then there is something for everyone. For those of you... More

Great quirky atmosphere in this restaurant. There are many delicious small plates, and an interesting and inventive cocktail list. Maybe a little pricey but the quality of the food and the great atmosphere are worth it for a special treat. The staff are dressed in 20s ‘burlesque’ outfits e.g. corsets. We had a reservation and they had even called us... More

It was not as loud that allow us to have a conversation. Nice atmosphere. We started with cocktails: HoochieCuchi: muddled sage, rosemary, gin, elderflower liqueur, pomegranate float;... More

Found Cuchi Cuchi by searching reviews on line and it didn't disappoint. Waitresses in flapper outfits. Menu has international small plates that are terrific. Cuban cigar, mushroom risotto, seafood in avocado and fried purple cauliflower in sweet salsa were all fabulous. With teenage son who also loved it. 10 min walk from MIT on Main Street, central sq

You won't be disappointed with this place. Staff is very welcoming and friendly. Food is delicious, you can travel around the world with their many plates (you get to choose a few since it's "tapas" plates style). There's a huge list of original cocktails. Decor is eclectic yet stylish. Loved it!

I love small plates and especially flavors from all over the world. I love the variety for vegetarians and also for those who loves spice. The decor, ambience and servers dressed in old hollywood outfits took us away to another world for an hour or so. My friend and I don't drink and were super delighted to taste the mocktails... More
