Russell House Tavern

This is one of the best restaurants that I have been to in the Boston area. Ginger beer is homemade, and very very good- it provides an incredible base for many of the drinks. My brother and I ordered very different dishes: I ordered a riced cauliflower chicken bowl & my brother ordered the chicken fried sandwich with fries- both were incredible.
A great restaurant for chilling with friends or a good drink & apps
It was great going back out since the shutdown. RHT was super accommodating and welcoming. Great food and drinks!
Everything was absolutely perfect. We had a party of five and tried many dishes. The food was on point, drinks and service were terrific. I highly recommend the calamari, the crabcakes and the wings.
no complaints other than Harvard square is just loud as hell, but that’s not the fault of this lovely restaurant.
It is a fun atmosphere. They have great appetizers.
Excellent food. Nice amount of creativity but still recognizable American fare. Crab Cakes were great!
Outstanding Service. Mike, Andrea and Zoe were wonderful. Very attentive, fast and personable. They made it a most enjoyable evening. Management is to be complimented on such a fine staff. We will absolutely be returning!
Nice brunch on Sunday morning. Great wide variety of choices!
The dining room was extremely loud, and the roasted chicken was a bit dry.
Me and my friend had really nice time. Ambiance was good and not much noise. Limited options for vegetarians and vegans.
Great service! Enjoyed my sweet potato hash bowl. It was flavorful and filling. Would come back again!
Nice menu, great service, great food, good beer/wine selection. Rather expensive.
Both of our fish entrees were completely unseasoned and flavorless. Not what I expected out of a $30 dish.
Our server was not very attentive. She was training which I know demands time,but we never got our water re-filled and when 1 person asked for more coffee, the server just took the mug and they never brought over a pot for everyone else to have more. I asked for my bacon well done and it arrived very pink and soft. (Which was sent back and fixed) The breakfast potatoes were also very sweet even though they weren’t described in menu as being so. Was not overly impressed.
Food was good. I felt the server was new. He did not check on us after we were served.
Perhaps we were there on an off night, but both main courses we ordered were very greasy. The chicken sandwich came with what looked like uncooked bacon - rather than crisp strips with rendered fat, the bacon was soft and the fat congealed in the bacon. The burger, too, suffered from excessive grease. On the other hand, the lamb meatball app was good. The service was good.
Fun hip place. Good food. Nice service
So happy we found this place. Cozy and inviting with good food.
It was our friends 40th birthday and our server went above and beyond for us! From the appetizers to the desserts, EVERYTHING was amazing!
Amazing customer service. Music was very good too, caters to a younger audience with it.
Had dinner with friends before a concert at Sanders theatre. Got a very nice quiet table in the corner. Service was very good. Food was good. Nice variety in the menu.
Lisa was a great server. Seasoned trout was delicious!
We had a reservation and decided to eat at the bar downstairs. It was fun and the food was delicious. Looking forward to my next visit here.
Convenient go-to place for a lunch place that allows conversation, if you get a table to the side. Prices are a bit on the high side, but that is to be expected given its location in the Square.
My friend got a burger, which was delicious. I got the haddock, which seemed like mostly cream. I really don't think that was worth the price. I had gone to the Russell House Tavern and loved everything, but this evening's meal was a disappointment.
I enjoyed dining at Russell House Tavern. Ambiance great and service excellent. My Eggs Benedict was a little too salty for my taste, in part because bacon was nestled under the eggs rather than on the side but the sauce also struck me as salty. The fried potatoes were excellent. Next time I’ll order a few poached eggs with toast and potatoes.
We really enjoyed brunch at the Russell House before a concert at Sanders Theater. The menu is most interesting. I had avocado toast and deviled eggs and my husband had the Tavern breakfast. Delicious. We weren’t rushed, everyone was very nice. Love Harvard Square and will come back to the Russell House.
We hung out at the bar. One bartender was only on his second day, and already fantastic. The other bartender, whose name I didn’t catch (in case management is reading this, she’s a tall brunette), has personality and hospitality in spades. I think I’ve been going to this spot since maybe 2012, and it has never disappointed. I wish they had old world wines, but that aside, they’re pretty much perfect.
Food arrived late, like an hour last, the steak tartar was an unrecognizable dish, side of broccoli all burned (1), simply disgusting.
Nice place . Good food. A few odd dishes on the menu but worth a try :)
Atmosphere and food was good. My salmon came with broccoli and cheese and when my food was brought to me the broccoli and cheese was not even warm. I think for the price they could have done better with timing my food to be at least warm before bringing it to me. Not super impressed and it was nothing special. Decent place to have a nice dinner or meet up with friends. Parking was a challenge if you didn’t want to park in a parking garage.
Great food and service. Everything from appetizers to desserts was delicious! It was a bit loud.
Music: a bit too loud and a bit irrelevant for a Saturday morning.
Service: good but esentials like salt and pepper and tea spoons forgotten.
Food: can be a little warmer, especially since there were not that many people when we were there.
Our waitress was awful! Calamari was bad so we sent it back and they admitted there was something worng with it.
Great servers, food was very good and looked great! Loved the music playlist!! 1 odd thing though.., they did not have cranberry juice, only a cranberry seltzer.
Though service and ambiance were decent, the food was not great
Staff was really nice!
