Gustazo Cuban Kitchen & Bar - Cambridge
Great food as always. Shrimp is my favorite! Drinks are good too
Food is terrific, location has easy parking, everyone who works there is super-nice and responsive. No complaints!
Fantastic authentic Cuban food. Great addition to the neighborhood. Reasonable prices, great staff and service.
They've introduced weekend brunch - great idea, delectable-looking menu. But they are totally unprepared. Arrived exactly on time for our Sun brunch reservation, seated promptly. Waiter informs us that the bartender has not arrived, so no cocktails. Also, most recommended item on the menu is not cooked yet, won't be available for 30 minutes. Place our order. Food is slow. Meal comes out stone cold - not lukewarm, but cold. It's topped with a poached egg. I try to make the best of things, but a meal of cold poached egg is just too disgusting to eat. Waiter is apologetic, promises to bring me a new order. 60 minutes after being seated, my meal still hasn't arrived, so I walk out. Waiter comps me the coffee like he's doing me a big favor. No exaggeration - this is one of the worst restaurant fails I've EVER encountered. Wait till they iron the kinks out before risking your Sunday morning
Always a great go to in the area with fantastic cuisine.
This place is a gem, and definitely worth going out of your way for. Delicious, creative food.
The food, especially the ceviche was very disappointing. The dish was simply not as good the last two visits to your restaurant.
The pork belly, while still pretty good was very salty this time. The mussel dish was also below par.
Everything about Gustazo is magical. The atmosphere is upbeat, yet also warm and inviting. The menu is fascinating, and the servers are friendly and helpful. The food -- mostly tapas-style small plates (though they also offer entrees) -- was fantastic. Lots of interesting offerings full of bright flavors. We loved it and can't wait to go back.
They are still trying to figure out the brunch menu. Had to wait for our table for 20 minutes even though we had reservations. Ended up at the table tops. Management noticed and acted very nicely rushing our food. The food was excellent. Service was very good as well
One of the most overrated places I have ever been to. We were put in the basement which looked like a dorm basement with zero character. The noise level was extremely loud, more like a frat party. The service was excellent but the food was just ok. Not amazing. We had the gambas al ajillo with polenta for $15.... and the garlic was raw. This recipe has you sauté the garlic in oil with the shrimp. And they just left it raw in there and added four shrimps and said it was $15.. ok. The empanadas were just ok, Masa and Barcelona make better ones. The octopus was just ok and so was the eggplant. Will I go back...no.
This was my second time dining at Gustazo's and the first time dining on the main floor, rather than downstairs at the bar. The meal was phenomenal! I went with my parents and boyfriend and as my father said, the food was all an A+ or an A, nothing below that. The cocktails are delicious, the service attentive and informed and the dishes were all unique, fresh and flowed out of the kitchen at a good pace. Some standout dishes were the guacamole and plantain chips, the yuca fries, the tamale, empanadas and tres leches cake - basically everything! My only critique is it was quite loud so if someone is hard of hearing that could be an obstacle. Keep it up Gustazo's, we will definitely be back!
We may not be the right kind of customers for this restaurant. It is too dark and too noisy for older people. Just couldn’t really enjoy our meal because of the ambience. We really won’t be going back here.
Loved everything I was served. From the guava mimosa, the breakfast taco, the yuca fries, to the churros and dulce the leche crepes. Delicious!
Fantastic service 👏 delicious food 😋 was not packed at all for Saturday brunch. Wish they did tapas for brunch like they do for dinner but we still really enjoyed our food!
Came late to my reservation and was still accommodated, which I appreciated. The food was outstanding, I just wish the portions were a little bit bigger. My group got the truffle yuca fries which were awesome and the queso frito. The Maduros wrapped in bacon were to die for-definitely too small of a portion. For entrees we got the arroz con pollo and one of the seafood dishes. Chocolate cigar was a great dessert. Definitely will come back again. Nice ambience
Loved everything here! The drinks were great and we tried 8-10 different tapas and enjoyed it all.
Food at Gustazo is wonderful, go for the tapas menu - that is where the magic is. Cambridge location is larger than Waltham. Ambiance is comfortable, including couches for waiting or having a drink. My complaint is that it was very noisy, which made it hard to chat around the table.
The food was superb - well-executed, creative plates and lots of appealing choices on the menu. The service was a bit lacking in that the servers were not all well-prepared to answer our questions about the menu. And the restaurant was a bit chilly inside on a cold night with the door constantly opening and closing. But I would return for the food!
I did not feel full confortable at this place. They send us to down stars where it was noisy.
Food as always was good, and the service too.
Very slow and messy service. Kept bringing items we didn't order all the time. Ruined a much awaited birthday dinner.
Wow! Awesome friendly and helpful staff and service! Busy night when we were there and we did not feel rushed. We mostly shared delicious tapas plates but next time we will try some of the entrees.
Wonderful night, wonderful service, wonderful food!
Nice food and beautiful dinner room!
I was a lunch time, empty and quietly
Gustazo is my new go-to when I want to take someone out for a great meal. The food has been spectacular, their cocktails are complex and delicious, and the space is beautiful. Highly recommend.
Lovely as always! For how high quality the food is, the prices are very reasonable. Our server was attentive but not hurried, and the food always comes out of the kitchen fast and hot. Can not recommend Gustazo enough.
Best food in Boston. The room downstairs was a good volume for conversation.
The ambience is really nice. We always come back for their truffled yuca fries, they are delicious. I loved the quinoa bowl for brunch but I'd be nice to see more vegan options too!
Awesome meal & service! Absolutely recommend visiting
Excellent food and service, and especially appreciated that it wasn't noisy on a Friday night.
Fantastic food!!!! Service staff were phenomenal. Ropa Vieja was tasty!
Every dish was unexpectedly fantastic. Fab place !
We had recently been in Cuba so it was very exciting to sample a wider range of Cuban foods. The dishes we ordered were superb (empanadas, ceviche, cauliflower, lamb chops). We were there at 5p so the noise level was reasonable. I'm already planning to return.
Overall excellent experience. Food was delicious and the waitstaff was kind and attentive.
Great food and service
very loud. Called ahead and the host couldn't hear me, nor i her, over the phone.
Food, drink and service were all very good (food was excellent). It's not a quiet spot, so hard to have a conversation, but the food is worth it.
All the food was very tasty and well prepared. Service was very quick (if anything, too fast - would have liked a bit more time before the dishes started to appear).
We had a fantastic, interesting meal. Nice change up from typical menus in other restaurants. The food snd cocktails are terrific and the atmosphere is lively and fun
Service is friendly and on point. Portions are generous. They recommend 2-3 dishes pp which would have been way too much food
Would definitely go back
Yes. Very yes. Absolutely yes. Have I typed enough characters yet?
