Contemporary American | Kendall Square, Boston

We had a celebration dinner here on Friday night. I was surprised that the restaurant was not more crowded. This is my first time at this location. I thought the food was good, not outstanding. It is very attractive and good service with attentive staff. My husband had the Chinese box which was excellent. Other dishes were pretty good as well. Price is standard for this type of restaurant. I would return. More

Middle Eastern | Kendall Square, Boston

The food was delicious, as always (Aushak, Banjan, and other dishes). Service was friendly and welcoming, but they seemed understaffed, resulting in delays in receiving items requested. Noise level was comfortable in the back room at first, but quite noisy after a short while. I still love The Helmand, and hope they can overcome these issues. More

Seafood | Kendall Square, Boston

We celebrate my brother’s birthday there every year, and are never disappointed. The food is superb, as are their wine and drink lists. The waitstaff are very attentive, even at their busiest times (we were there at peak time on a Friday at 7:00 pm) and helpful regarding food and drink choices. The prices are very reasonable, given the quality of the food and ambience. I’ve lived in Manhattan my whole life, and wish there was a place as comparable in quality and price back home. More

Italian | Kendall Square, Boston

We had a lovely dinner celebrating my son's college graduation with 7 of his family and friends. Bertucci's is a place near and dear to him as when he was in high school and had an early release day he would meet me there for lunch. Many of the wait staff have worked there many years and know him and always go out of their way to come by and talk and provide great service. This time our waitress, Annie, brought by a complimentary dessert to acknowledge his graduation. Thank you!! More
