Am I searching for something that doesn't exist in Boston/Cambridge??

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a festive and fun Saturday evening spot with solid food and dead-on cocktails, where we (a party of 4) can hear each other talk, and we can either make a reservation or get a bar table without waiting a year. Is this an impossible dream?

Here are the places that first came to mind, and why I suspect they won't fit the bill. Let me know if you think I'm wrong, and if based on the below, you have ideas for what might work.

Bar at Chez Henri -- would be perfect in every way, but I suspect we'd have to wait forever to get a bar table.

Silvertone -- love the cocktails, but super loud and maybe one step down on food than I'd like to go

Marliave -- not super crazy about the food

Green Street -- same as Marliave

Gallows -- won't take a reservation and I'm sure the wait would be crazy

Rendezvous -- a little too sedate/formal of a vibe

South End Buttery -- would be great, but on their website it looks like they only have cocktails at brunch. Could that possibly be true?

Would appreciate your thoughts on this! Thanks so much!
