We had a reservation and waited over 30 minutes for drinks and an additional 15 for the waitress to just take our food order. It was very loud and service was awful but food was good.

We enjoyed the urban contemporary dinning setting which affords views of the sidewalk guests and nearby shops. Our server, Jennifer, made us feel welcomed promoting taking our drink order and returning at near perfect time intervals throughout the meal. The 8 oz filet was prepared to order with sides. We split the entree which was a perfect counter to the majority seafood entrees ordered at area restaurants on the previous 2 days. The cocktails, spicy Margaritas, were prepared with the necessary fresh ingredients and on point. Overall, Theo’s offers great value for dollar and a upscale counterpoint to the family style seafood restaurants.

We enjoyed the Chateaubriand steak for two—cooked perfectly. Appetizers were good as well—French onion soup and wedge salad. The bread basket is amazing! Server Amanda was very attentive!!!

My husband and I had a wonderful dining experience last night at Theos! Decor, cleanliness, service, pace, wine, and food were all superb!! We both loved the French onion soup. My husband had a perfectly cooked filet and I had the tuna - which was also perfectly cooked and served with delicious sesame croquettes!! We enjoyed the entire experience from beginning bread basket to end with key lime pie! Very well done!

My steak was so heavily peppered that I could barely eat it. A bit disappointing for how expensive it was.

My husband, son, and I ate at Theo's two nights ago (Saturday evening) and it was very good. The food was good, the service was good and the dining accommodations were lovely. The BBQ Shrimp appetizer was delicious, over the top with great flavor. I had the Aperol Spritz and my son had a signature drink and they were both very good. All of our entrees were delicious: Steak Frites (the sauce they serve on the side is amazing), Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna, and the Salmon. Our waitress did a great job. We will be back again.

I took my gf for her 45th Birthday. It was the worst part of her birthday.We were sat at a table under one of the AC vents that dripped water onto the table and onto the plates. However no one seemed to notice this until we were seated and we pointed it out. Then we were seated at another table and it was the same thing happening. I was so frustrated at this point that this even happened it truly just ruined the ambiance and I tried to make the best of an AC unit dripping water into my onion soup and dinner. I just became disgusted. Had to even request a set of silverware to eat with since no one gave it. I got a peechy keen that was awfully way too strong. Told them we were celebrating a birthday and no one offered to share what they could do to make it special or anything as I would have paid to do so.

No comp or offer of discount whatsoever for the inconvenience. Hopefully when you are seated you don't have the same experience. Like it literally has been the worst of of Open Table that I've had so far. Not pleased at all for the amount of money spent.

The staff at Theo's always tries their best to accommodate requests - to include what you add when making reservations. The entire staff is friendly, always smiles, says hello and waves goodbye sharing their hope to see you again. Everyone is willing to help if you need something, and they always make sure your food is cooked correctly. Other restaurants could take service lessons from Theo's in Cambridge - this has been the case since they opened a couple of years back, through and post COVID-19.
Steaks are incredible and match top steak house quality. The two bummers are 1) prices have gone up which will make it harder to go, and 2) they did away with their wine special night a few months back which also will minimize our visits. Even though it'll be harder to go with higher prices and specials minimized, I'd choose and go to Theo's over a Ruth Chris, Sullivan's or Morton's any day - food is wonderful and all aspects of service is really the best.
Thank you Jennifer, the server she was training, Wednesday night's hostess, cook and bar tender for making our evening out a beautiful evening. Theo's in Cambridge - you always make it perfect!

I mentioned on open table that it was an anniversary. Waitress didn’t mention anything. She also didn’t supply us with happy hour menus, know what type of steak “coulotte” was or how to describe a specific red wine - said she didn’t drink wine. Also couldn’t describe the type of beer my husband asked about. We have been to Theos before…waiter could always answer those types of questions. Another person in party had their burger cooked wrong. Sadly too…the bok choy was sandy. A bit disappointed.

Outdoor dining was provided on the sidewalk, which I appreciated. My ahi tuna entree and my friend’s blackened salmon were outstanding! The rose wine available by the glass is now on my list of favorites. Our waitress was very attentive.

Food was beyond amazing. Service honestly was so poor….the waitress was obviously very stressed or annoyed about something and took it out on us. We tried to make light conversation but it didn’t help, very awkward. Really didn’t spoil the evening though, still was amazing food and we were with friends so that’s all we cared about.

Enjoyed dining experience. We had filets. The food is good, but in my opinion very highly salted. The spinach was just too salty, I sent it back but it came back salty but not as salty. Lol.

Other than that, the food was very good.

We ate outside with a heater close by and it was a great dining experience. (I did request my salmon to be rare, but it was not. That was the only drawback.)
