The food is really fine. It's not great, but it's not bad either, and it apparently doesn't take itself too seriously, keeping its prices all below $30. Drinks are good. The plating for the tapas was a little fussy and dated, with the quality and age of the plate-ware not helping. Bread was great. I say stick to more straightforward cooking -- no one needs these fancy seeming platings -- I mean really - we're in Cambridge, anyone who takes themselves so seriously as to expect these can gtfo. We want good straightforward cooking.

My favorite restaurant in Boston/Cambridge. Best owner in Boston/Cambridge area. Never had a bad dish. Toasted oriechette is to die for. Steve Johnson knows his food and he respects the food and he respects the customers. Excellent.

The food was fine but not at the level of a 26 rating. This place used to be better, and friendlier. It now seems more oriented towards a younger clientele looking for a lively "scene" than fine dining. It is probably a great local hang-out but not a destination restaurant for people coming in from the suburbs.

Dinner here is an all around classy affair. The food is good and covers a wide range of choices, the drink menu has some nice specialty items, and the service is good. The decor is nice, but the space is noticeably a bit smaller and brighter than some similar venues, so if you want the illusion of privacy there isn't so much much here, but the location is great, so in terms of good food and excellent drinks in the heart of Cambridge this is the place to go.

Excellent dinner with old friends. I truly enjoyed the swiss chard pasta dish. Salad was light and filled with good greens and the desserts delicious --

I love coming in here and sitting at the bar - especially on Mondays when they have after work tapas. The bartenders are excellent and friendly. The food is spot on and they have some intersting drink options - I have gotten some great cocktails here. I would defintely recommend a trip in here. This bar - the actual bar itself- is one of my favorite - it is so roomy. You have space for all your drinks/food. I like the 2 level action. Props to Rendezvous for thinking through the space and doing a great job with it.
