Serene spot for French-accented fare
French · $$
Local roots and a simple, seasonal cooking approach inform this "casual yet classy" French-inflected eatery near Harvard Square, where a wood-fired oven and grill turn out "pitch-perfect" , "well-thought-out" plates served by an "attentive" staff; set in the storied former Chez Henri space, the "sophisticated" , "airy" surrounds feature wood-topped tables and a marble bar proffering "delicious" cocktails and a thoughtfully curated wine list.

The food was different, not too extreme, but definitely some things I'd never seen on a menu anywhere else. Everything was delicious and portion sizes were perfect. The gin cocktail was excellent. I would bring people from out of town here to show them there are great restaurants in Cambridge outside of Harvard Square.

Love this place. Incredible service, very delicious food. Try their chicken - it’s the best in Boston!

The food was quite good. Our waitress was not. She was condescending and asked multiple times to clear our dishes before we were done eating. She was young and perhaps this is her first serving job, but she needs more training! She is the face of the restaurant to the customers she is serving, and as such, makes the restaurant seem unprofessional and pushy. I already said the food is good, but it wasn't so good as to overcome the service.
