The Blue Room is a hit or miss with me when it comes to brunch. The food can be fantastic, but it wholly depends on the replenishment of the supply as well as how many other guests are there. Too many brunch guests and you may not get to

Pros: seasonal, local food, cooked in front of you!

Cons: varies by the day!

I've been here for lunch and dinner and have had a great experience both times. The buffet brunch is small and well done, with lots of hot and fresh items.

The blue room offers the finest in quality food, wine and service. The food is always presented well and cooked to perfection. The wine selection is compose of a great variety of reasonably priced, quality wines. And service is tops, where the team always works to deliver the very best and most consistent dining experiences found in the Boston area. If you're visiting Boston/Cambridge, don't miss this locals only dining spot.

THE BLUE ROOM is consistently a winner over many years. great atmosphere, brick and woodsy and warm and cozy. very fair prices and always very high quality. totally unpretentious and an unassailable winner. simple as that.

Pros: Extensive wine list (tho pricey), reliable and diverse menu

Kind of "loungy"; the cuisine varies from Mediterranean to Asian; the service is OK; the quality of the food is not AMAZING but is not terrible by any means. Would recommend if you want something low-key

I've been here for breakfast and dinner and both are great. For breakfast, they have a lot of Spanish influences with black beans and guacamole and egg burritos. For dinner, the chicken is excellent as are the fried plantains.
