If you have 4 or less people, you can get an neat "pod" outside. They look really nice and have heaters.
Daedalus is a wonderful restaurant with a cozy feel! Loved eating here.
We were recently doing college visits in Boston. The roof top deck was so pretty, although a bit cold. I had the salad with Brie and pears and grilled chicken and it was delicious. My daughter had the shrimp salad and my husband had the fish and chips. All were delicious. The service was good. I would return.
Great time! Our server, Jake, was the best! He had just the right amount of energy, humor, and class. He made for a very elegant evening with the boys. Also he crushed it with the drinks! 10/10 night with a 11/10 server.
Delicious dinner on the roof deck - a bit windy, but good food and service compensated for that.
Overall, good experience, but somewhat limited entree and dessert options. Outside dining preferable during COVID. Server was excellent and attentive
Exceeded my expectations! Outdoor dining done right. The salmon was fabulous.
Only down side was the metal chairs and table felt a bit makeshift and we’re cold when the temperature dropped.
Overall very impressed - definitely would recommend to a friend.
Great spot and great ambiance. Drinks were good too. But we made a reservation and still had to wait 50 minutes to be seated. Every 15 minutes we would ask and they said, “ it’ll be another 15.”
It’s so unfortunate. I love daedalus and the ambience, but we had a such a horrible experience. We waited 40 minutes for our tables, the people were extremely rude and not understanding. The food was great, but the service makes me question going back there again. Also my Aperol Spritz was so watered down with basically no aperol in it. Wouldn’t recommend.
The service is attentive but not obtrusive and the menu is creative without being weird.
Amazing service and staff highly recommend
Great atmosphere. Great music. Very attentive and considerate waiter.
As always, great specials this week as well as great service. It’s nice to have a place to eat and feel comfortable that they are doing everything that can be done to keep you safe.
Lovely Sunday afternoon with my adult children in the outdoor roof garden, Beautiful weather, very private and peaceful setting with delicious food. It couldn't have been better! We highly recommend the rosemary truffle fries!
Festive individual pods on the rooftop were a creative Covid idea. All dishes were between 4-5 stars. Spiced cider was strong but hot and yummy.
Because of Covid we find restaurants that we could eat outside. This was perfect it had beautiful flowers all around and the spacing between tables was great!!
great service. the burrata bruschetta was fantastic, though the dinners - while good - were pretty average.
The food exceeded our expectations. We sat on the street side. Was a very pleasant experience.
Love that they had heat lamps outside. Food was mediocre but the drinks were great
The outside dining decor was beautiful and they have heat lamps ! Food was amazing, and they were very Covid safe. Highly recommend !!
the food in this place is SO good, the drinks are ample, the rooftop is beautiful, and the service (Jacob) couldn't be better...including the anniversary ending. my guests were first timers. they loved it. we'll be back.
this is generally a bar in my opinion. I have come here for happy hour and enjoy the patio. with covid they have more extensive outdoor seating which is nice if you want to be outside but not as nice as their standard roof patio which has a view. The food is ok to good. I got the fish and chips and it was tasty. I got their whiskey cocktail and I didn't love the flavor. It was kind of over-powered by the aperol - i believe it was the Daedalus Smash.
Loved the roof deck, great cocktails and the food was delicious!
Great roof deck
Experience booking and dining with Daedalus was TERRIBLE. We had reservations for outside and when we arrived they said they couldn’t honor it / asked us to wait 1 hour. Will not go back.
The pasta was cold and the services was bad, they also charge us more Thant we ate and it took us a lot of time to explain their mistake .
Daedalus has very good Barfood that is even nicer to enjoy sitting on the beautiful rooftop Patio.
Daedalus was a great spot for a night out in Cambridge. Although we had to wait for seating on the roof, it was well worth the wait. I will definitely be returning.
Unfortunately Daedalus was pretty disappointing. I made a reservation for 7:15 and did not get seated until 8:30. I understand with Covid there are less available seats but the hostess didn't even try to be accommodating for the ridiculous wait time, even though we made reservations. We should've at least gotten free drinks or dessert. The food was alright, nothing special. We had to wait a little longer than usual for the food as well. Not planning on going back.
Stefan took great care of us, the food tasted better than we anticipated and the drinks were A+. we'll be back.
Great food the outdoor dining in the alley is a wind tunnel, not bueno!
Had last minute dinner on a Sunday night. They have created a nice back patio that was pleasant, festive, and appropriately socially distanced.
It was great! The outdoor rooftop was nice. The only thing is we had to make separate reservations and the restaurant was not accommodating about trying to seat us together.
The food and service was very bad, I will not go back.
Always love a good rooftop meal at Daedalus! The food is amazing, the drinks are wonderful, and even with COVID the outdoor dining felt safe and enjoyable. The server was attentive and timely and the ambiance is beautiful with the flowers in bloom and tall plants separating each table.
Highly recommend the burrata, truffle fries, & salmon tacos. The red sangria is also delicious as a summer or fall drink!
Service not great, overpriced for small portions. But the ambiance and place was beautiful.
Daedalus has always been a favorite of mine. Their menu has a nice variety of interesting flavors from salads (pear & brie) to comfort foods (delicious risotto) and great sides (definitely try the truffle fries!) The bar is very well stocked - I personally enjoy a mojito, aperol spritz or a gorgeous rose from Provence. The hubby likes their rotating beers on tap as well as their bourbon collection. Any seat on their roof-deck is the best seat in Harvard Square. Everything is super-clean and appropriately distanced. The service is quick and very friendly. You can't go wrong!
A rooftop in Harvard Square - with delicious food, wonderful ambiance and great service. HIghly recommended -a good place to support local restaurants.
We enjoyed ourselves. they have figured out out door seating in the pandemic....
This is always a fun spot to meet friends. The food and drinks are satisfying, and the rooftop deck offers a welcome respite from COViD-19 isolation.
