    This is my fourth or fifth Open Table review of Forage; it is just about our favorite restaurant in the Boston-Cambridge area. This review covers the 08/09/2022 cucumber-peach wine pairing dinner. We had one omnivore menu and one vegetarian menu, plus the optional cheese course. All of the plates were superb in the style we have come to expect from Forage: imaginative, sometimes surprising, but also very coherent and delicious. The wine pairings were especially good at this meal, also imaginative and surprising but they worked beautifully with each course. Needless to say, we will be back.

    A true Cambridge classic, as good now as it has always been. Ingredients you’ve never heard of, surprising combinations, and hidden subtleties abound in almost every dish. Very veggie and vegan friendly. Can’t wait to get back.

    Incredible upscale restaurant. Every item on the menu is unique and I've never seen them before. And they mostly taste exquisite. Except for one or two that are way too out of the box. Definitely on the pricier side but worth it. Outdoor tables have a very good ambience. The service is very nice. Definitely recommend.

    Ugh. This place is trying way too hard. Our bill came to over $150 and, while we did have two glasses of wine, we basically overpaid for squash blossoms. This is the kind of place you sit down at and know right away you're going to need a real meal after your meal. Our waitress was weird too and kept calling us darlings. Meh. Skip it.

    We had the tasting menu and wine pairing. We’d highly recommend adding the wine paring. The food was great. It felt very fresh and light, yet was satisfying. The indoor space created a very close, intimate environment. I would highly recommend this spot for a date night or small gathering with friends and family.

    We enjoy Forage each time we have dinner there! The waitstaff is attentive and knowledgeable. The ambience is a quiet chill and the wine selection is broad and varied. The price point is expensive, and usually worth the cost. Recently, though the vegan meals are basically a plateful of barely cooked vegetables with little to no flavor. It was disappointing during our most recent visit! Sauce accompaniment would be a great partner for the grilled vegetables. Desserts are usually creative delicious.

    WAY overrated. 'Forage' is an accurate name -- we had plates after plates of a mess of overpriced vegetables with seemingly little preparation and no thought of presentation. WAY over rated and over priced.

    Extremely overpriced! The food was so-so and very difficult to eat. Long strands of very tough vegetables impossible to cut. A very small piece of fish was good but didn’t justify the price. The chocolate mousse was a soupy inedible mess. I would not recommend this restaurant. The only saving grace was a very pleasant waiter.

    I have requested outdoor seating and they rejected it because apparently there is no outside seating after 7:30 pm. There was no indication of that when i made the reservation. So we ended up sitting in a crammed place receiving dull service. Food was mediocre. I had indicated that we were there for a celebration and there was no acknowledgement on that. Overall we had a poor experience.

    Great flavor, but food was way too salty. This is my third visit, and it’s been too salty every time. Forage is really great (for a restaurant), but I typically cook better at home and use higher quality ingredients (like grass-fed beef).

    Spectacular service, great presentation. The food and drink are on the expensive end, but it feels worth it based on the quality of the food and its ingredients. My only complaint is that the potatoes were underdone, which I suspect was intentional but isn't my preference.

    Was excited that they had vegetarian options on the menu. Appetizers were quite good, but entrees were odd. Steak was served at barely warm temperature, hot mushrooms were served with warm rice and very cold beans. We asked to have the entrees warmed up and they came back marginally warmer. Parking was a pain. We won't be returning anytime soon. Service was VERY courteous! They tried. Kitchen and bathroom not very clean.

    Had vegetarian tasting menu with wine flight. Delicious plates with well prepared and presented seasonal options - familiar (asparagus), scare (fiddleheads) and new (knot weed, nettles). Locally sourced cheeses were exquisite. Wines were delicious complements, unusual varieties, available and accessible staff and each wine had a unique depth and profile to enjoy. Made the celebration evening memorable and I have a plan to return with many friends.

    Great place for a celebratory dinner! Food was great. My wife had the lion's mane mushrooms as her main, and she said, "I could eat this again *tomorrow*" and she is one who likes variety! My skirt steak was excellent. Our server made us feel right-at-home; she was attentive without it coming off as oppressive. Her recommendation of orange wine was spot-on. Excellent night all around!
