"I was on a date - they have great booths and the ambiance is nice. It was a Sunday - so pretty quiet. The bar is great for the individual traveler to eat. Service was appropriate, and the food was fantastic! I spent most of my career on Hawaii, and the ahi plate was one of the best I've ever had! We loved our appetizer as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant."

"I have to say I am so glad we chose somewhere new for lunch! Bambara is absolutely a wonderful place to eat. We were greeted at the door and given a cozy corner spot of our choice. Our waiter, Antonio, could not have gone out of his way more, as far as I can say. Instead of giving me extra plates so that we could share, he had the kitchen split our entire lunch onto different plates with the same presentation that would have been for the original dishes. The grilled cheeses was by far the greatest we have ever had, accompanied with tomato soup. We also had the chopped salad with chicken that was fabulous. Can't wait to go back. Be sure to ask for Antonio!"

"I really wanted to do dinner on New Year's Eve, but didn't want a 4 course meal. Bambara was one of the few restaurants offering an a la carte menu. The food was very good and the service excellent. It was a great option for a quiet end to the year."

"I've always seen Bambara while on my way to Cambridgeside Galleria and decided to suggest this restaurant for a date. I showed up first, and was a bit confused - there's no host stand..? Ended up sitting at the bar, right in front of the bartender and a server who were chit chatting it up. Took them a good while to realize that they had a paying customer at the bar... When i ordered a drink, I informed her of my reservation and asked if it was self seating. She gave me the most snarky glare ever. Rude, much? I'm sorry if I'm used to be greeted when I step into a restaurant. I'm also sorry that I've worked in the industry, and know that the way she handled that situation was incredibly uncalled for. Her manager should've taken her aside and set her straight.
Ultimately, I had the waffle, which I thought was ok, and he had the Brunch Burger, which he said he really enjoyed. Our server wasn't the most attentive, but he wasn't the worst I've encountered.
All in all, I won't be back. Hire friendly people who are willing to greet your guests!

"We were in the Boston area celebrating a birthday get away weekend at the Hotel Marlowe.
Bambara is in the hotel so after a long day of sightseeing it was easy and convenient for dinner. The Tuna was cooked to perfection and they had probably one of the best crab cakes I have ever eaten..
They don't shine for breakfast but dinner was exceptional.

"This was a good find to meet with a friend and enjoy a good meal. The adjacent hotel was full of character as was the restaurant. The menu was not extensive but my steak was well prepared and my wife enjoyed her seafood selection and our guest enjoyed her meal. After 8 p.m. the noise level exceeded our tolerance but enjoy ourselves for nearly three hours, great service."

"Went to Bambara with a work colleague on a Tuesday evening. The restaurant was approx 1/3rd full, so easy to sit and discuss topics. Food was OK - not inspirational, but very tasty.
The restaurant is next door to a hotel - so I guess it gets a lot of hotel traffic.
Reasonable beer & wine list. Good choice of appetizers and entrees.
