Cafeteria Boston Ratings and Reviews
I've been to Cafeteria many times now and the food never ceases to be great! They always have fresh fruit and brunch on the weekend is an absolute must to do! Their lunch options are also very great! Although the vegetarian options are few, they're so tasty that I keep revisiting. The Spinach dip is a must-have!
Servers only stood on one side of the table so I had to repeatedly YELL over all the noise just so they could hear the order, rather than just coming to the other side of the table to take my order. The server that was training literally flung food and crumbs all over myself & my belongings while trying to remove our plates- again reaching across the table rather than just coming to the other side. Ridiculous. Won't return
Love Cafeteria - but they just shortened their menu a ton and got rid of some of their best items! Their new menu is a single small page, with half as many sandwiches including my favorite the curried chicken salad. Used to love coming into the city to come here, looks like we will be trying new options this summer. Very disappointing.
Have gone here many times and enjoyed our visit again. The only notes I have was that it was pretty loud and the chef wouldn't make any changes to the meal we wanted to order and the waitress provided no real suggestions other than changing what we ordered. I would add a note to the menu (which I didn't re-check) if this is the case. We just wanted to switch out the sides. Overall, we had a nice time.
I've been to cafeteria many times before and the food is always fantastic. The service was extremely slow this time, as it took about 20 minutes to get drinks after ordering them and then took a long time to put food orders in. The table was ready when we got there which was nice and the drinks and food were delicious. Patio seating is perfect for when it's nice outside and great for people watching!
Our waitress was awesome!! She was no nice and hard-working. The food was also amazing! I loved the breakfast pizza. My sister got the pancakes and bacon and loved that too! Overall, I would 100% go back and loved the experience. Also side note-- the music was great and we were jamming the whole time.
Loved the outdoor seating area along iconic Newbury street in Boston. My friend and I went here for brunch and made a reservation prior to going. The service was average, there were some waiters in training so a few minor mess ups with knowing the menu but nothing that would deter me from recommending the place. I got the French toast which was good but could have been cooked a little longer to make it more crisp, as the middle part was a tab softer than I'd prefer. Overall enjoyed the meal and mimosa. Prices are a tad more than I'd like to pay for breakfast/brunch but the location is what you're paying for!
Having an OpenTable reservation didn't matter as I waited with others crammed around the entry. Two hostesses were clueless about seating us efficiently as they helped people with non-seating concerns even though several people left but we all still had no seating. The only benefit from all this confusion was seeing passing trays of food that convinced me the food choices were mediocre after all, so my steamy exit was a no-brainer. I ended up at nearby Bar Boulud (French fare) where I was treated to a serene, first-class brunch and, most importantly, attention. You get what you pay for ($10-11 more but worth it). Cafeteria Boston thinks a Newbury St address will get them customers regardless. Not this customer, ever.
I recently went here to celebrate my engagement with my parents and fiance's parents. It was the first time our parents were meeting as well. My only two "complaints" is that we were sat at a high top, which was a little less than ideal for older people, and that the music was very loud which made conversation kind of tough. Other than that, the experience was great. The menu is vast and fit all needs. Our server Clint was friendly and helpful. He/the restaurant even treated us to a round of champagne and a dessert for our celebration, which was obviously above & beyond and well appreciated. Definitely would recommend!
Very much enjoyed our meal at Cafeteria . Casual dinning right on Newburry st. We had a tasty mushroom pizza and a very creative Greek salad on a sandwich which arrived with Parmesan fries . If you looking for a casual meal in a comfortable setting stop in .
