    We had a reservation on a Tuesday night to meet some friends for dinner. We had not seen each other in some time so we spent a good deal of time visiting before we even ordered an appetizer. We did not feel rushed in any way. Our waiter was polite and patient with us. The food was delicious! We had a wonderful night and will definitely return very soon. I would highly recommend this restaurant as a great alternative to driving into Boston for the evening!

    We decided to try Strega Prime for a splurge night out. We were greeted warmly by the hostess and the restaurant manager, and shown to our seats promptly. The bar side of the restaurant was quite full, and energetic conversation was flowing. That same conversation joined in the more muted conversations of people in the dining room, making the noise level moderate. Not quiet by any means, but not boisterous either. Our waiter was quick to welcome us and offer some suggestions on wines (the wine list is quite extensive), and his 1st choice, based on our meal was actually a lower priced wine which did not disappoint. The meal, which consisted of the Wygu Meatball to start, 12oz Filet, the large portion of the lobster gnocchi, and crème brulee for dessert was sublime. Everything was cooked perfectly, taste was excellent, and the service exemplary. While the price is not cheap, it is in line with other high-end restaurants. As I said, this was a splurge, and was worth every penny.

    Rib Eye unevenly cooked, very rare in spots, chewy and totally tasteless (no seasoning). Sides were average - truffle fries were good, but asparagus was bland, mushroom polenta was just ok. Service was slow and inattentive. For the price, it was disappointing.

    Probably the best place for dinner North of Boston. The service, presentation and food were all excellent. Even though my wife and I don't eat red meat there were still many choices on their menu they we could choose from. My wife had the Chilean sea bass and I had the salmon and were very satisfied. We are spreading the word 10 STARS for Stega Prime.

    I went to Strega for my boyfriend's birthday and the food was fantastic! We were given our own private booth, and it was quiet and romantic. The servers were very friendly and knowledgeable - making excellent recommendations. They even sang happy birthday as a surprise with a fantastic dessert. I'd recommend for date nights or special occasions.

    Sunday Brunch. From start to finish, this experience was just off. You could see waitstaff was trying, but their somber demeanor dampened any welcoming warmth. The live musician had a wonderful voice, but several members of our party were hard of hearing. Our initial order of cinnamon buns was not recorded and never delivered, but also not charged. Our server did not inform us that they were out of veal, which forced half of the party to a new selection. One member's rare aged sirloin came out barely pink on the interior and well done on the outside 1 inch edges. They cooked him another which was better. Midway through the meal an employee knocked over a glass lamp, sending some of its shattered fragments across our table.

    My wife and I had an outstanding meal at Strega prime. This was our first visit to a Strega restaurant, but it certainly won't be our last. The food was excellent and the service was more than excellent! It is rare to find outstanding service these days, which is really a sad reflection on what we have become used to for many of us who eat out alot. We were very pleased with our waitstaff, who were attentive-but not overbearing. It is obvious that the folks at Strega have it figured out! Thank You!

    We dined courtesy of a gift certificate, so the a la carte pricing was less of an issue. I am not a meat eater, so there were limited options, but I thoroughly enjoyed the salmon with the accompanying sauce. Popovers were good (they could have been hotter), and our waiter was very attentive (he had to bring drinks to the table because the waiter who took the order never came back with them). I would recommend Strega Prime for those who enjoy a good steak (there is no prime rib on the menu).

    Strega Prime is an expensive restaurant which I would keep for special occasions. It was an excellent dining experience. The menu offered a wide range of choices, the wine list was impressively endless. Our waitress was well trained and knew about the menu. Service was a little slow, we did not complain, but apologies were offered and a complementary creme brulee was served to thank us for our patience. All in all, a memorable meal in a professional setting.

    The dining room is beautiful and relatively quiet and service was nicely timed and well trained. This could have been a 5 star review except that my steak ($49 bone in filet) was slightly overcooked and the pumpkin sticky toffee dessert was dry. The prices are quite high (major city prices for a suburban mall location?) Including tip we paid $100/person with only sparkling water for my husband and one $9.00 glass of wine for me. Definitely not the place for a weekday family experience.

    We were looking for a great place for a rare night out by ourselves. Strega Prime turned out to be that for us. It was a treat to be able to order a 2009 Silver Oak Cabernet by the glass. My wife does not drink wine so ordering a bottle almost never happens unless we are out with a group. We started with the Tartare di Manzo (beef tartare) and it may possibly have been the best appetizer we have ever eaten. Truly amazing and highly recommended. My wife went with the petite filet and I had the bone-in filet. Both were cooked exactly to our ordered temperature and excellent. Don't miss out on the foie gras & truffle marrow butter. Sweet potato puree & brussel sprouts sides were perfect. Service was very attentive and always with a smile.

    The steaks were very good but the meal seemed overpriced for what we had. (We ordered Prime Steaks, aged beef, and very expensive cuts of meat) Two steak dinners, lobster bisque plus a beer and sangria. The check after tip was almost $200. I lived in Los Angeles and thought that our meal might compare to Maestro's Steakhouse, but it fell far short of my expectations. Too many other Boston restaurants left me feeling like I should have went elsewhere. It was worth going to visit but I think it will be a long while before I return to this location. I heard the waterfront Strega is beautiful. It just appeared that this location was struggling for a Friday night.

    Another creation from Nick Varano and in his persuit of quality food, elegant dining, and superior service he had created another master piece! Wait staff is attentive, knowledgable and friendly (not stuffy) and made us feel welcomed. A large selection of steaks but also creative dishes with fish, chops, lamb, and italian dishes. I recommend the steak tartare for an app, the Chilean sea bass (if you aren't in the mood for steak) and if you have room, the zeppoles for dessert! We will definitely be back for more!
