"Overall the food was very good at Waban Kitchen. Perfect roast chicken, flavorful sides, great fish fritters. Unfortunately, the bay window - an otherwise prime spot - was so cold that it became the dominant memory of the evening. That along with the kind of wait person who inserts herself into the table conversation, expressing an opinion about a movie under discussion. That said, pacing and attention by the wait person were actually very good."

"I usually love restaurants with an open kitchen - however, at Waban Kitchen there was so much scowling between the kitchen staff and the front of the house it was unbearable to watch! I was seated at one of the tables directly facing the kitchen, and all my husband and I saw was a young female chef scowling and another chef shouting at the servers. Our server wasn't the sharpest, so I could sort of see their pain - but mainly because it was written all over their face!! There didn't appear to be a manager anywhere that could bridge the gap between whatever conflict or resentments they had going on but it was AWKWARD!! Maybe they should put up a wall - because the food was excellent!"

"We dined here for Valentine's Day and the service plus food presentation was well below the super-premium pricing would lead us to expect. My friend ordered a fish special / entree which was insipid and my rib-eye was cold / lukewarm! When we asked them to take the rib-eye back for re-heating they brought it back a tad warmer given it would have spoiled the "medium" done-ness I had requested. Instead, they should have brought back another piece of meat at the right temperature. Appetizers were decent and the wines are also good. We love the "sister" restaurant to Waban kitchen but were very disappointed by this poor showing."

"The food was terrific on this pre-Valentine's Day evening and the service was very good and personable. The tables are very close together; and the dining area can get really chilly when guests arrive and depart with the opening and closing of the door. I had to keep my scarf on for the duration of the meal but it was an exceptionally cold evening. We enjoyed our meal and will return!"

"The food was delicious and service very attentive. The only negative was the bar program, unoriginal and overly sweet cocktails. (A negroni, even a cranberry negroni shouldn't taste like a cosmo, and shouldn't come in a martini glass) Luckily the wine program is a solid alternative. Overall I would return."

"We were unable to get a table early, other than 5 pm. When we left at close to 6:30, there were still many tables available. The menu is limited, but if you want really healthy food, this isn't the place to go. That said I did have an unbelievable black bean soup. The mezze platter wasn't the best one I had every had."

"Server recommended that a vegetable we had picked would make a great appetizer to share and it was the perfect suggestion. Noise level is louder than I would have liked, but everything else is great. Loved the hake and its flavors and textures."

"I ordered the ribeye steak and it was likely the best steak I have ever had. A few weeks prior I visited a famous steakhouse and they were not even close. Great food."
