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

Lots of variety for each course on the prix fix menu. I ordered the salad first, which was unlike any other salad I'd ever had in any restaurant in the world--absolutely beautiful presentation, "right-sized," and a bouquet of tastes layered one on top of another. It was exquisite. I tried the beef dish next and enjoyed a surprisingly well cooked... More

A special dinner to celebrate our son's recent engagement & beginning medical school and this place was PERFECT. I have eaten at the French Laundry ( Yountville), Four Seasons Hong Kong and a list as long as your arm of highly acclaimed establishments....This one deserves attention...but I'd hate to draw crowds and have to wait months to eat here....so Shhhhhhhh....

Small intimate space. Great inventive menu, with something for everyone. The foie gras to die for.... Wait staff was excellent

...I know it's been a mainstay of the Boston fine dining scene for awhile, but I am not quite sure what to make of this place. The food was very good, but tasting menu portions were a lot smaller than at most of the other fine dining restaurants. What you see on the tasting menu is what you get -... More

We tried to go there without reservation.... no way The restaurant is too small and on Tuesday (the day we tried to eat) they have wine pairing for a reasonable price. We ended up going back on Thursday day and were satisfied. The food is very good, the staff is nice, and the ambiance is very romantic.

Truly inspired and delicious food in Cambridge very close to Harvard. Wow this was quite the meal. The 3 course prix fixe was $55 but everything sounded so amazingly inventive and delicious that we splurged for the tasting menu at $85. It was delicious and filling. Some of the preparations were truly original (I never had duck on rutabaga that... More

After a co-worker told me about this place I made reservations for an upcoming Tuesday night wine series. I was a little put off by having to park 10 min away (only because it was freezing out!!) and once I walked in it was quite small and looked like it could be "stuffy". Glad I was wrong! This was one... More
