About Cafeteria Boston
Cafeteria is a cool, casual, contemporary atmosphere where the comfort food of "yesterday" gets schooled by the flavors of "today" to create a dining experience that is "tray chic."
Our new cafeteria-themed menu is a modern interpretation of classic soul-satisfying American dishes prepared with organic grass-fed beef and lamb, free-range chicken, the freshest seafood and organic, local produce. These properly raised ingredients
behave perfectly with a new world of herbs, spices and culinary techniques to create deeply satisfying comfort food for the new millennium.

Poor service(not our server's fault...he was very nice but trying to wait on our table of 7 and be the bartender), food that was fine but not outstanding. Place was kind of worn...chairs ripping. Would not go back.

So, our server was a lovely person BUT if I ask for a spoon for my 4 year old's ice cream, a 15 minute TAT on getting that spoon is crazy. We were a party of 5 and we had to prompt her at every turn to clear our table of empty plates, glasses. For what we paid for drinks and dinner the service should have been better. Also, with the low ceilings, turn your music down - I could barely hear the person next to me speak.

The food was great and the service was good but the ease for the guests can be improved. The pizza was not cut, the sandwich was messy and overfilled. This creates an overall uncomfortable experience for the customers while eating.
The breakfast pizza has practically raw ...
The breakfast pizza has practically raw eggs on top covered by arugula and salty cheese. I asked to have the eggs cooked more and the pizza was brought back with a more solid egg and a blackened hard crust. Very unappealing.
The manager did try to replace my meal after defending the strange combination of uncooked egg (I have never had a breakfast pizza I didn't like) but by then everyone else was almost don't eating so I picked around and ate some of it and paid for the meal as they did not take it off the bill.
If I were to go back, I would ask for a full description of anything I ordered. My friend to my right ordered Huevos Rancheros and it smelled terrible.

We have been here for dinner and Sunday brunch and were always impressed by the food and service. Everything has always been fresh, local, and well prepared. For dinner we had the salmon with black lentils and asparagus and the whole wheat penne. The salmon was perfectly prepared and served with a large serving of black lentils on a delicious mushroom sauce. It was the highlight of the dish. And the asparagus was perfectly crisp tender. The penne pasta was also delicious. The Parmesan fries are excellent.

The first thing I noticed was the restaurant smelled like mold or water damage. It was dingy and not attractive. The word "Restroom" was scrawled on the wall with an arrow. It's pretty expensive for what you get.

Always like Cafeteria for lunch after a spa day with friends or casual get together. Only consistent problem (more chronic now than consistent) is their disgusting bathrooms. Not sure if it's from a lack of attention or some issue with the building's plumbing. But it causes me to rethink just how sanitary the restaurant is overall

Our evening started okay until was time to order , every entree we wanted to order was not available. The server was not aware about the meals available . We were celebrating a birthday, I called in advance to request a simple candle. The server brought us the check did not acknowledge the fact that I called and asked him directly to bring us a slice to cake with a candle . About 20 minutes later I found myself looking for the server to remind him again , he was not around , I reached out to his colleague and no luck . We were about to leave the restaurant and someone came with a slice of cake . So sorry to say that I'm disappointed about your service.
Thank you for the opportunity to express my feedback .

We had a wonderful time at Cafeteria Boston! Our food was yummy and the fries are to die for! Our server was very friendly and the White Sangria was also delicious! Highly reccomend having a bite to eat here if you are in the Newbury Street area!

Food was very good. Wait staff was lost most of the time--hard to fine. Took our drinks when they were 3/4 empty. Hostess were rude....they alone about made us leave tonight.
Obviously the kitchen carries this place!

Lovely location on Newburyport St. Nice trees for shade. Server Nick was knowledgeable and friendly. But tables for two are too small to reasonably hold drinks and dinner for two. All food - shared appetizer, salad, and pizza - were delivered at once. One of us had to use the pizza tray for a plate. Pizza was cool by the time we got around to eating it. Will go back - food was very good; service was excellent - but will order one course at a time.

Overall it was a very nice meal and a relaxing experience. My beets were a bit too bland but really that isn't why you go here. The lamb burger my niece had was delicious. We sat outside on a very hot day and it was quite nice.

The service here is impeccable. Very warm and friendly, the most I've experienced in all of Back Bay. Waitresses are attentive, polite, and spot on with their warm and welcoming demeanor. The food complements the staff with great tasting fresh cuisine. Indoors is a little quiet on a nice day but can seat outside without reservation; its a popular choice on a sunny Boston summer day (rare).

Food is great but it's too loud! It's hard to listen and converse. The service is spotty, you'll get a good waiter/waitress but other times you have to wait a while to be greeted or for a water refill. I keep coming back for the spinach artichoke dip.

I had the macaroni and it was not good at all. It tasted like something you could make out of a box from the grocery store. Regretted going to Cafeteria because there are so many other great food options around like MET Back Bay.
