Congenial Harvard Square pub with reputable food, hearty pints and a clubby touch of class. – The Scene
Search no further for the proverbial "clean, well-lighted place." Huge front windows (swung wide in warm weather) and a greenhouse roof on the second level flood the pub with daylight; an amber glow radiates at night. Downstairs splits into a convivial bar and a narrow dining room. The upstairs lounge sprawls around the stairwell with a second bar, a scattering of tables and cozy couches along the walls. Those who come solely for drinks are rewarded with a solid beer selection and personable bartenders.

The Food
Best buys are the refined bar food--fish and chips, sandwiches, burgers--from the "late lunch" menu. More ambitious entrees like sea scallops with oyster mushrooms, bacon and potatoes are executed with finesse. The menu has all the current culinary-college touches (chickpea fries, braised greens, baby artichokes, Cuban spices) without the preciousness. Desserts are gooey, satisfying and familiar--fallen chocolate souffle, creme brulee, fruit cobbler.

shithole – so, daedelus maintains one of the rudest, meanest bartenders in the united states. i hate this restaurant/bar, and I promise that harvard students will all eventually realize how crappy it is.

Straight From Ireland Best In Cambridge – We came to boston 3 years ago. Thats about around the time Daedalus opened. So 3 years ago we had our first experience there. Simply Perfect! We've must of gone there almost 100 times in 3 years. One of the only places where the owners are truely fiendly with the costomers. The menu changes seasonal and always is top notch. I highly recommend an evening at Daedalus. Destined to be a true Gem. Cheers to the Owners. It how most restuarant owners should treat there costomers.

sexy,sultry, smooth – Harvard Square has been in need of a place like this for quite some time. The upstairs room is dimly lit and very chic. A very nice bartender guided us through the menu to find some real gems. Calamari is impeccably done, as was a risotto special that night. Drinks were great and competitively priced (best cosmopoitan I've had yet!)

Harvard Watering Hole – One of Harvard Square's unofficial meat markets, this bar serves overpriced food, but is one of the better watering holes in the area, if you desire to impress a date, or find one for the evening.

Fly away – This is a very cozy romantic spot. It has two floors. The atmosphere is amazing--dark but with the flicker of some scattered candles on the tables. The desserts are out-of-this-world. The upstairs has a greenhouse-like-roof perfect for looking at the Cambridge sky. It is trendy...but not too crowded. It's close to Harvard Sq., but not overly close. The bar area is also very nice.
