“Excellent breakfast buffet but service was poor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

The breakfast buffet here was very good and we had it every morning of our stay at the Royal Sonesta. The service though was lacking. The waiter both mornings was very slow and never refilled our water's and was very slow with the check as well. Not good service but breakfast here is good.

“Worth the visit if staying at Royal Sonesta”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I usually don't dine at the restaurants on site of a hotel property but I made an exception this time while staying at the Royal Sonesta in Cambridge because the menu caught my eye. My wife and I were quite pleased with our lunch. What I liked most is that the menu was creative rather than run-of-the-mill. Prices were also very reasonable, not to mention being able to dine outside on their patio in front of the Charles river!

“Lousy service. Great food. Great view.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Service was lousy to absent. We did not get all that we order nor did it arrive at the same time.

The pancakes are good. So is the lobster omelet.

View of Charles River is good.

“Great views but overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Staff was friendly but food was so-so and way overpriced. You can't beat the patio, though, for gorgeous views of the Charles River and the city of Boston in all her glory.
