The food was terrible. For a place that is in Cambridge, one would think the food would be superb. It wasn't. The oil needed to be changed . The chicken wings were tasteless and fries were salty. I will never eat here again! The waiter was nice but there is no seasoning whatsoever. This is shameful. The chef/cook should know to change oil before frying anything.
I attended the restaurant earlier today with my colleagues. I ordered a fish sandwich. The fish sandwich was flavorless and the fish batter was very dark brown. Clearly they are cooking with old oil. The waiter was nice ad I expressed to him the food was horrible. My colleague ordered chicken wings and they were awful as well. The wings were super dry, no flavor and extremely dark. Am sure they were fried in the same oil as well. My waiter was very apologetic about the situation and I appreciated that. I still gave him a good tip.Am saddened that a restaurant in a well to do neighborhood would serve food like this. This is shameful. I would expect this from Friendly's or McDonald's not Nubar.Please have your chef know to change the oil and learn how to season better. This was unacceptable and ruined my experience at Nubar. No other guest should have to deal with tasteless food cooked in old frying oil.I love to eat out and had high expectations for this place. If Google had an option to give zero stars or half a star, I would have rated it a zero. The only good thing I had experienced about this restaurant was my waiter. He was nice and made my drink well.Please change your oil and add more seasoning to your food.
They recently renovated the space- the lighting is so cool (like a castle)! We sat outside, and even though it was a busy day the waitress was very attentive and kind. We each did the 3 course restaurant week meal. My friend also got the truffle fries, extra crispy. To start, lobster arancini- yum! Could see the whole lobster pieces. As a main I had the cod with the Kelly crumbs (the chef bakes the bread daily, and that's what they use for the crumbs.) My friend got the steak- which looked great. For dessert, I had the profiteroles, which came with a Mexican chocolate ice cream that was to die for. My friend got the key lime pie pot de creme, which was very light, and not too overpoweringly lemony. Great experience here!
