Terrible service – Dining alone, no bread at table, no specials offered. I was the invisible diner. Waiter could have cared less. Food was average, but the service spoiled the whole thing. I will NOT return.

Like the atmosphere – Food was decent...post-modern comfort food I guess you could say.

Great place to get a drink on a cold winter night.

The food was terrible! – From the outside it looks like a great place, but the food was absolutely awful. My burger tasted "gamey", like the meat was old. My girlfriend's meal was so drenched in oil, it was practicallly inedible.

What a waste of 40 bucks.

Was it a club or a restaurant – 2 stars, need I say more!!! Went on a friday night, Will give credit for the service and the drinks, was the food frozen and cooked in a microwave? It was not worth the dining experience! Go back for the harvard club scene not the food.

Great bar, but steer clear of the kitchen – This place is great for a bar scene, but the food leaves something to be desired. The menu lacks consistency or any sort of theme and the food is surely frozen before preparation. Pizzas and apps are average at best and the sandwiches are nothing special. Stay in the bar for a good time, but seek other Harvard Square options for dinning purposes.

Great Food and Funny Bartender! – I went here recently with my wife Kate and we had a blast. We sat at the bar and shared a few appetizers and had a few drinks. The bartender Paul was hilarious, worth going back just to watch him in action. The food was atypical bar food in the sense that it tasted very fresh, and that someone actually put time putting together rather than just throwing it on a plate.

Love the outdoor patio!!! – Besides the food being amazing, I love love love that the outdoor patio opens up to Harvard! What a great scene - a little piece of Boston history in your line of sight while enjoying a lunch or dinner. There's always an interesting mix of people as well - everyone from students, to professors, to regular working people.

The crab cakes and the Pear Salad are delicious, and the butternut squash risotto is SO GOOD. I always have trouble making a decision when I eat at Grafton Street!

Love this place – I went to Grafton St. last night for a friend's birthday dinner - though i've eaten there in the past, I had never had anyhting beyond a burger or a salad, but i was left wondering why this was the case last night - had roasted chicken dish which was about as close to home-cooked as can possibly be - delicious, perfectly seasonsed and very reasobaly priced. Soemone else at the table got the pork and someone got a fish dish of some sort (bass maybe?) - everyone was super impressed. I'll definitely be back (maybe for brucnh, which I just found out they offered last night)! Good patio too.

Awesome new menu, new chef, new staff, new managers, NEW EVERYTHING – I think the only thing they didn't change here was the lighting... which is fine.

I used to go to Grafton street all the time a couple years ago until things started to slide and hadn't been back in a long time- It was almost by accident I ended up at the old haunt. Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised by all the work they've been up to. I know turnover is high in restaurants but it looks like they really went for it at Grafton and hired a new HAPPY staff that is friendly, knowledgeable and really hot.

The new menu is pretty hot for that matter too. The old pub staples are still there but now theres alot of new items and its being cooked by a new chef who makes everything look like a fine dining without killing me on the price. Even the new managers were walking around the dining room- one even came to my table just to see how everything was, then he refilled my drink himself instead of making a busy waitress do it.

It's nice to see the new life in Grafton Street- I'll definitely be hanging out there again in the near future!

Terrible, awful, don't go! – I went to Grafton Street with six other people. Our waiter was extremely rude and slow. We finally ordered our food more than half an hour after we sat down. One of our friends told the waiter that she was allergic to peanuts and tomatos. When she received her wrap, it was stuffed with tomatos. She pointed it out, and he lectured her and had an atitude problem. I ordered the same wrap...it was awful. The drinks are terrible. The waitstaff is lazy. The food is disgusting..
