"WE wanted to go someplace near the concert we were attending. We wanted someplace quiet and unagressive, but elegant, to put us in the mood, and with excellent food that wasn't over-the-top expensive. Nubar was perfect. My companion had the excellent grilled chicken sandwich and I had the tomato and basil flatbread, which is really one of the best pizzas in Boston, though it's not shaped like one. The service as always was courteous and considerate, the food was delicious and not very exp[ensive, and it put us in the perfect frame of mind for the concert. Nearby was a couple who were also going to the same concert. We all had the right idea."

"We've been several times and I enjoyed this time as well, but it was not as good as on earlier visits. I liked my second drink (Ward 888) much better than the first one, which had an ingredient substituted (they did ask first) and wasn't my favorite. I got a tofu dish, not the same as my typical choices, and it was the right choice for me. My partner got a pasta special, which was disappointing because the pasta was overcooked and the limp boiled-seeming mushrooms in the sauce gave it a "canned" impression (though I'm sure it was not). There was also a huckleberry lemonade cocktail that was pretty good."

"Interesting to see the Sheraton Commander come of age. Nice location. Parking was reasonable for Cambridge. Only concern was the room was quite cold and this was April- might be even chillier in the winter."

"It is difficult to find a good quiet restaurant so that a group can talk and hear without shouting. This is one and I recommend it strongly. Food was interesting and good; service was excellent. While many people were in the restaurant (it was pretty much full the whole time we were there) it was always possible to hear each other without an effort. And this is a great location -- basically in Harvard Square -- and (for a price) there is valet parking."

"I love the set up here. We went for my birthday lunch and it was very relaxing. I guess my friends had a hard time finding parking but that wasn't a problem for me. The flatbreads are a great choice and the kale salad is amazing. Also, my drink off the "skinny" drink list was very delicious. If you're looking for a calm and relaxing lunch spot then this is a great choice."

"Delicious menu whether you choose pre-theater fixed or full menu. Duck confit and mushroom flatbread was out of this world!"

"I went to dinner at Nubar for Dine Out Boston. I had the curry lentil soup and salmon. Both dishes were good but not great. The salmon was cooked perfectly but the vegetable and bean accompaniment left something to be desired in the flavor and texture departments. I couldn't eat any of the desserts due to my egg allergy, so my server provided a fruit salad. While I appreciate her flexibility in giving me something not on the prix fixe menu, it was a disappointing dessert and contributed to my sense that I did not get my money's worth.
My brother on the other hand, had a salad, the braised short rib with polenta, and crème brûlée, all of which he enjoyed. My experience may not be indicative.

"The food was very good. Having said that the service was so bad it ruined what could have been a great night. There was half as many waiters as they needed for a room of this size."

"We liked what we had for dinner. Not high end dining; very good for the price. It is not a tablecloth restaurant, but the ambience is nice casual. The service, however, was unacceptable. We waited more than 15 minutes after being seated before a waitperson came to the table. We ordered drinks, nothing elaborate to make, but it was another long wait before the drinks appeared and we could order dinner. The courses were served in a reasonable amount of time but we had to get up to track down the waitperson for our bill. It looked like only two waitpersons were working, so maybe the restaurant was understaffed for some unusual reason. We would give Nubar another try but if there is a repeat on service, that would be the last visit."

"Nubar's menu was varied, wine list was strong. We found the waitress to be a bit neglectful, but we had allowed enough time before going to a theater performance, so it didn't really mar our evening. My companion's chicken dish was a bit on the salty side; the Nubar salad and the butternut squash flatbread were delicious! We were able to take a taste of wine before ordering, which was great."

"They have a selection from the regular menu that is designated as a pre-fixe pre-theater menu. It's well-priced and includes appetizer and entree. You can come back after the show and have the included desert.
Everyone was very happy with what they ordered.
