This has become our go to eatery in Cambridge, it's nice in the winter with the fire going and equally nice in the summer with the doors open. While it's not inexpensive, the good is consistently good.

Had dinner here, restaurant was reasonably full and we didn't have a reservation but they seated us promptly. The service was great and the food good, although the steak was quite sinewy and luke warm.
