We tried Grafton Street Pub & Grill again recently. This restaurant is at the edge of Harvard Square and has a decent outdoor eating area. The weather was nice outside, and we scored an outside table!
The restaurant calls itself "a combination of a traditional Irish pub and contemporary European restaurant." They have a big bar with a big selections of beers, and the ambiance inside is definitely buzzing with activity.
As we didn't go inside, I cannot really comment much else about the inside. As for the food, we definitely thought the cooking was solid. My salmon was perfectly seared on the outside and moist on the inside. The portion size was not too big, and the salad on top was refreshing.
Bryan got the seafood paella, which he enjoyed. Again, very reasonable portion sizes. I think we both finished our entire meals, which is quite rare.
Although we enjoyed our meal, in the end, neither of us was wowed. We thought that, for the price, you could get better food. Nevertheless, if you happen to be in Harvard Square and you want solid cooking in a nice atmosphere, Grafton's is not a bad bet.
