Commonwealth Cambridge

Commonwealth Cambridge is Kendall Square's
American Style family restaurant built on good food. 


Validated parking is available after 4 p.m. Monday
through Friday and all day on Saturday and Sunday. 

Starting in 2017 Commonwealth Cambridge began charging a 5% Independent Restaurant Fee. With this decision we took on the responsibility of providing our entire staff with livable and sustainable wages and benefits. This is not a gratuity and is not intended to subsidize our servers' hourly wage. We believe this decision reflects our core beliefs regarding the well-being of our employees and their families. We love what we do and want to build fulfilling careers for our staff. We warmly welcome your feedback.
