We stayed at the Le Meridien MIT for the weekend, and we had dinner twice and breakfast once at Sidney's Grille. We really liked the modern architecture and furnishings of the restaurant, which was congruous with that of the adjacent hotel. We had the seared sea scallops, fried calamari, pan seared crab cakes, New England clam chowder, lobster mac and... More

Convenient if you are staying at Meridien. But quite expensive for the ambience/ experience they offer. Food was average. Service was good. But many better choices in the area.

Had the half sandwich and Soup lunch and it as very good and reasonably priced. We were a group of six and they served very quickly and everyone enjoyed. Can't beat that.

My family and I had gotten an early dinner well staying at the Le Meriden. It is a big restaurant and their wasn't many people dinning at the time we were there. Our waiter was very nice, I wish I had caught his name. The food on the other hand wasn't very good. Nothing really special going on at this... More

Had breakfast at Sidney's -- the food was good, service was poor. Very pricey for what we had, especially given the slow, inattentive service.

Even though I stay at Le Meridien every year, I had never eaten at Sidney's because it is so expensive and I am traveling with high school students. This year, however, a snow day forced us to try the breakfast buffet and I must say, it was really, really good. It's expensive, but comparable to what you get in most... More

The food at Sidney's is very good but a little pricey as with all hotel restaurants. However, I would say it was worth it!

Nice atmosphere, great staff and prices aren't bad. The restaurant was clean, wait staff was very efficient and the food was better than most.

Located within the Central Square location of the Le Meridien hotel, Sidney's is at best, a convenient spot. I have eaten at here at various times over the past six years. The service continues to be notoriously slow and food just average. It's a real shame - with so many new and existing dining options in the area, Sidney's could... More
