We weathered the snow storm, we loved it all , on a sunday nite

My high expectations for T.W. Food were certainly not met. The food served ($55 for three courses or $85 for six courses) is good to very good, but not excellent, as there simply is not enough creativity or flavor on the plate. I started with the foie gras creme brulee, which was enjoyable for a couple of bites before getting... More

Thanks to a friend who had been given a very generous gift certificate, we both had an amazing dining experience in this small, intimate neighborhood restaurant on tiny Walden Street in Cambridge. The portions were just right, and the wine/food pairings were great. I am not a culinary snob (not that I can afford to be!), but due to Life's... More

This is a wonderful experience in all ways. The service is excellent and attentive. The food is very well prepared with very fresh and local ingredients. We began with the muscles. I have a very tender and properly prepared steak which I seldom order and I was pleased with the portion size and preparation. My wife had swordfish which was... More

I have been fortunate enough to dine at T. W. Food a number of times and each time is wonderful and always new. The menu changes all of the time and when they have a wine pairing tasting menus I try not to miss it. They flat out know what they are doing. The service is warm and friendly without... More

Brunch can be so boring but on a recent visit to T.W. Food we had a beautiful brunch with fresh ingredients and elegant service. Three of us had eggs benedict done with spinach, cauliflower and parsnip, the sauce was not the usual Hollandaise but a bernaise sauce with tomato paste added for a sweet and rich taste combination. They serve... More

Dinner here for 4 was quite good, if not spectacular. In general, food was solid, though mostly not outstanding. (Exception: the Agnolotti, which really was outstanding.) Foie gras crème brulee app was very enjoyable, if a bit more bland than hoped. Other dishes and desserts generally were certainly OK, though flavors seemed a bit muted. Platings were uninspired, and did... More

I have tried various fine-dining places in Boston/Cambridge and this one is top of my list. Creative dishes made with fresh ingredients and attentive service. Recommended for a romantic evening.

One thing is very clear - the reviews of T.W. Food are all over the place. I think I understand why. First T.W. Food is a very small (in terms of operation and physical space) restaurant. In addition, the food, designed around a farm-to-table philosophy is constantly changing. Finally, with their recent accolades (Boston Magazine Best Restaurants 2014) - T.W.... More

This is a GREAT restaurant. The food is simply on a par with other great restaurants in the world. While on having about 30 seats and a closet sized kitchen, they do an incredible job. We try other places every now and then, and when we come back it reminds us that the others are just pretenders, and that this... More
