“Slow”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

The service was pleasant enough, but once the tables filled up the servers were overwhelmed. The food was just ok. My halibut special was too dry to eat, but they did replace it without a hassle. I would not hurry back.

“Lovely Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

We were strolling from Harvard and wondering if we could walk to MIT, but needed Lunch. We stumbled upon this Cafe with a lovely patio which our weather was perfect for. Good lunch specials, and a unique building enjoying a second life.

“GrEAAT food; poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We really enjoyed the food... scallops, duck, kale salad, chocolate dessert, wine, martinis. The service was unusually and comedically bad. Three different wait staff asked us for our order. All three were asked for water. No water for 25 minutes after being seated... 10 minutes after our martinis arrived... 5 minutes after our salads were served. We like this place and will return with the (hope springs eternal) hope that the wait staff works out the bugs.
