Commonwealth Cambridge is an American home style restaurant serving farm to table family style dinners. We will be working closely with local New England farms to bring the freshest ingredients into our restaurant. Commonwealth Cambridge also has a full bar that will serve classic and original cocktails, local beer and a fun wine list. Commonwealth will also have a market with local produce, cheese, charcuterie, house made ice cream, pastries and prepared foods.<br /><br />

"This is the second time we have tried Commonwealth. I keep wanting it to be a great foodie place but the main dishes fall a bit short. I have not tried the fish yet so perhaps that is what i should order if there is a next time.
So far i have tried the pork chop, lamb steak and flatiron steak. All were less than great and a bit tough or dry. The other parties crab was just ok.
On the other hand all the vegetables are always flavorful and cooked just right. ALso, my clam chowder was one of the best i have ever had.
The deserts of ice cream and brownie was fantastic.
Load up on apps, veggies, and desert I think you will have fun here. I love the location. Fun to walk around in the vibrant square.

Blue Ginger, located in Wellesley, is Ming Tsai's award-winning flagship restaurant. This feng-shui inspired space offers three distinct dining options. There's the informal Lounge serving Asian tapas in a more casual setting. No reservations are required in the Lounge. The main dining room features an open kitchen for you to experience mastery at work. The menu features Ming's signature East-West cuisine, including his famous Miso-Sake Marinated Sablefish and Black Pepper Lobster. And lastly, there are three private dining rooms for larger groups or functions wanting to be enjoyed away from the crowd.<br /><br />"Blue Ginger is unusual, not only because of the food or the room, but because it's a neighborhood restaurant of a type not found too often in the Boston area...those of us who live farther away will just have to travel now that the secret is out." --The Boston Globe <br />

"We have been several times for dinner but this occasion they were having a Mother's Day buffet and my wife and i enjoyed it very much.
If you only had the salad bar and deserts I would have been happy. The main course had a great selection of beef, seafood, eggs, etc.
It was a home run!
