There are plenty of reviews explaining The Alembic in length so I will keep mine a little shorter. The Alembic has been one of those go-to places in San Francisco for me for a few years now. It was actually the first place which had a pork belly that was cooked so well it caused me to seek it out (unsuccessfully) at other bars. Really just about any of the tapas I've had there has been good if not great. The atmosphere is casual and a little hip but not over the top. Service is wonderful as well and really helpful when a decision is needed. I will continue to visit as long as they are around.

Hello Shawn, The Alembic sounds wonderful but we think you may have reviewed the wrong restaurant. Next time you are in Cambridge, MA come check out Bambara! Best, Bambara Kitchen and Bar

After hearing so much buzz from this place I was somewhat underwhelmed. Food is standard issue, flatbread, etc. Roasted veggies sounded good but were watery and salty rather than crispy and nutty. Cocktails were nice but delivered quite slowly. And the after work bar crowd was a bunch of shouting tech bros braying over the din of televisions.

Hello Mr. Wright, Thank you for joining us at Bambara. Your feedback is important to help us learn as we are constantly striving for improvement. I hope you'll visit us again and try some our unique appetizers or entrees. We do love our chorizo and goat cheese flatbreads but our lobster sliders and pan seared tuna never disappoint. Best, Amanda M.. General Manager

The breakfast is fairly standard hotel fare: eggs, omlets, and french toast. We didn't find it anything too special, but maybe dinner is better.

Stumbeled on this place during MDW and was very dissapointed!! The sea food is all farm raised and tasteless.. we also ordered a steak and that was undercooked and tiny. Overall poor quality food and high prices. On the other hand service was fair and the ambient was pleasant.

Taste good, let me start with that. The descriptions are suppose to give a full description of what you're ordering, BUT I guess when it said avocado I was not imagining 5 super tiny Emily poop emoji like drops of avocado on the dish.
Response from the owner - in the last week
Hello Steve, We would have hoped for a different reaction on the presentation of one of our dishes. It is not our intention to serve a dish that is not visually appealing. We will take your feedback to our kitchen to ensure that other guests do not leave with a similar impression. Best, Bambara Kitchen and Bar

This is a great place to go if you're looking for lunch with some co-workers. Their power-lunch menu lets you choose any appetizer plus any entrée for $15. This is great since you can pick what you like and not worry about your meal costing too little or too much. Overall good food, great atmosphere and great service!
