Good food and nice service. Located in the Hyatt Regency Hotel this is more a Bar than an actual restaurant. However, the food is really good and the service is friendly. Just the price level is pretty high and due to a mostly fully booked hotel the place can be crowded in the evenings, reservation recommended in case you want... More

The restaurant is part of the Hyatt on the river and the view is lovely. Rowers can be seen as you eat your breakfast. Several tables as well as a counter are available -- and some couch seating which seems a bit odd for breakfast -- but might make sense of cocktails later in the day. The buffet is pretty... More

Given that it was pouring rain, we chose to eat in the hotel. Zephyr, while loudly touting its commitment to local sourcing, had a very predictable menu. I chose a local specialty - New England Clam Chowder. It had few clams and few potatoes and the broth was overly salty. My Fettuccine with Bolognese was served too hot, and was... More

The menu is limited but tasty. We had New England Clam Chowder (one of the best per my husband), grilled steak and Cobb Salad with lobster. Everything was very tasty, well presented, and service was quite efficient. The view is exceptional and watching the scullers practice on the Charles River was fascinating. Don't get that view everyday!

I had drinks and some food with a friend in the evening. The food was good and priced accordingly to the hotel. However, there were not enough staff to service all of the tables. So, like the Hyatt Regency Cambridge hotel itself – they need to work on their customer service.

With view on the Charles river this is a nice restaurant. It is not super top but good and has a nice bar as well.

Good service, drinks a little expensive, nice view over river but food just average. Seating area not overly comfortable. Plenty of staff but would be better if they were not having their own social chit chat in sight and hearing of customers.

I 'm sorry that I didn't get the name of the bartender who made our margarita's on our first night there. They were absolutely wonderful! the skirt steak was delicious and tender, as was the chicken Tacos. Love this restaurant. Not to mention the beautiful of the Charles River at night.

A very handy place to sup when schlepping kids to nearby colleges, We had a cobb salad; gourmet pizza, and bouillabaisse - all were excellent, as was the view of the nearby shell training and dragonboat races. Plentiful free parking in the garage was an additional benefit

There's absolutely nothing around here for restaurants, but I'm glad my hunger succumbed to this hotel eatery. It's actually pretty good. Get the filet mignon!
