We came here other two sons and a friend and had the prix fix menu, absolutely stunning meal. I had the skate crisp which was wonderful. My wife had the foie gras creme brûlée which was even more amazing. The mains were duck, beef and a linguini dish, all spectacular. Desert was a valhrona chocolate, a s'mores sundae and cheese,...

This small and out of the way restaurant is wonderful. We visited Boston a few weeks ago and found a review of this place so we booked it. It is food heaven. We opted for the tasting menu and over six courses paired with perfectly chosen wines, we had a three hour experience of fine local food cooked with flair... More

I had eaten brunch at T.W. Food and been impresses so I made dinner reservations on the weekend of my son's wedding for an evening gathering of our best friends, four couples. We had a truly lovely dinner with appetizers and desserts. Everyone found something to their liking. Some ordered from the prix fixe menu and others ordered a la... More

Went here to celebrate the older kid's college graduation. The graduate, whose friends were clustering at a few better known restaurants, was utterly charmed. We all had the 3-course prix fixe menu. Big thumbs up for the wonderful arugula salad as a first course, and the pasta, cod, and ribeye entrees. The chocolate pot dessert was almost too rich. Nice... More

I've lived in Boston for 14 years and only discovered T.W. Food a few months ago .. I've been seriously missing out! This hidden gem is tucked away in Huron village and is charming on so many levels. The food is exquisite, beautifully presented and incredible flavours. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is delightful. I'm going for the... More

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
