We have been to The Blue Room many times and always came back impressed. The wine selection is excellent the food, though pricey, is always good. Location at 1 Kendall Square means parking is always available.

I tried the buffer brunch here with a few friends who were visiting from out of town. I was worried about my choice but I think the Blue Room passed the test with high marks.
