Took 20 minutes for our server to come (after we asked another server who was serving us). Server apologized but still didn’t pay much attention at all... checked in to ask how we were doing and went to walk away when I had to ask if we could put our orders in. I ordered a meal with GF pasta and it came with regular pasta... good thing I knew the difference otherwise it could have ended poorly for me. Someone else delivered it and I had to wait another 5-10 minutes before I even saw our server again to alert him of the mistake, to which he said it was GF until I reminded him the GF version was Penne and this clearly was not and then he agreed and offered to have it made it again... by that time I needed to get it to go as our infant daughter was reaching her limit. Had to then ask to have the meal comped instead of that being offered which I think should have happened proactively given the mistake being a pasta that could have caused me illness.
We’ve had other good experiences here but this one was pretty awful... unfortunately bad enough that we will reconsider coming again because it was not worth the trip/money to end up eating luke warm pasta at home later and not good enough the other times to roll the dice.
Love this place. Great food 💗
First time dining at this restaurant. After reading the menu and others reviews, I was excited about this place. The service and food was fantastic. I would highly recommend others to dine here.
We had a Cesar Salad and the dressing was creamy and well-balanced. Note that side salads are big enough to share between two. The Fried Mozzarella tastes like little crunchy puffs of air - so delicious. Braised short ribs pappardelle was delicious, with tender ribs and clearly homemade pasta. The fact that it was a bit heavy handed on the truffle oil and the pasta was a little stuck to itself didn't detract from it's yumminess. Veal Marsala was tender and delicious, though a bit disappointing in the lack of amber in the sauce - left to wonder a bit whether it was marsala after all. Cocktails were well mixed and tasty! Our chocolate mousse for dessert was a bit of chocolate mouse around a very large ball of whipped cream (we surmise not mixed properly). Our waiter was fine - not particularly attentive or friendly, which was odd given that there were only three tables filled on the night before an expected nor'easter.
Very busy, but we were seated right at the time of our reservation. The service was great and the food was amazing as usual. Great great job!
Food and ambiance great. Server was very nice and helpful... just took a while to be approached by anyone when we were seated. Then our food took a little more time than necessary. But that being said, we weren't rushed through courses. Overall wonderful experience.
Food quality and quantity way down from the past the scallops were small and dry the sword fish was burnt and tasted bad
Bon Caldo never disappoints. I haven't been in some time, but found the food, the service and the cocktails to be just as good as ever! Highly recommend for traditional Italian fare!
Had a wonderful dinner with friends. There were eight of us & were lucky enough to get a private room. It was fantastic. We were able to have a great conversation without worrying if we were talking to loud and disturbing other patrons. And as usual the food was terrific. Our waitress was very helpful (and patient) in helping us select the perfect wine and appetizers. We each had different entrees and enjoyed them all. I had the salmon and would highly recommend it. BonCaldos never disappoints!!
Food and service very good, Nice place to have drinks and Food, I liked the Salmon,
We had high hopes for a nice Valentine Dinner at Bon Caldo and were a bit disappointed. This began with a harried hostess staff who had difficulty seating folks and seated us (with 7:30 reservation) after folks who arrive after us with 7:45 reservations. We asked about this and were told that tables were assigned by numbers and they could not switch them. So we had to wait for our "reserved table to be cleared while others were available.
Once seated we had to ask the waitress to level our table because it wobbled (a lot). She was good natured about it - and in fact was the best part of the meal.
We ordered scallops wrapped in prosciutto - the scallops were overdone and rubbery and the prosciutto was stiff. The over-cooked theme continued where my date had swordfish that was dry and my medium filet was served medium well when I requested medium.
Not sure we'll try Bon Caldo again considering we have had better experiences at Sophia's a bit further down route 1 in Dedham and the places are similar in ambiance and menu
It was Valentine Day and we went there again for dinner. Always a great time.
This was my second time eating at Bon Caldo. The first time was about 10 years ago and I remember it being excellent. Not the case any longer. From a hassle over where we were going to be seated (when the restaurant was practically empty) to poor service and mediocre food, it was quiet disappointing. We won't be eating here again.
great waiter, we wanted to talk and eat slow and he was all in
I made a reservation and then edited it to have a birthday dessert arrive at the table when we were finished with dinner. Obviously that request was ignored. Our waiter was pleasant , although was a novice. The food was fair, not outstanding. I would not go back to this restaurant.
My wife and I were looking for a spot to have dinner as we were on the road all day car shopping. We decided on this place after browsing Open Table. We were very impressed. The place was/is awesome!!
This is our second time dining in (we normally get take out) and we enjoyed our experience here! We usually get the chicken parm with gnocchi which is always delicious! The eggplant appetizer is always good. Calamari was cooked well also! The only reason I can’t give this 5 stars is one of the pasta dishes my mother-in-law ordered was missing the pasta! Other than that, great place for take out or to grab a bite for everyday dining or celebrate a special occasion.
We were there two times already and it was amazing. I don't change my opinion on the restaurant. It's very nice.
I like the atmosphere, service and music. Food is good. Always have a good relaxed time here.
Always a good meal
Food was somewhat mediocre. had veal scallopini and it was very tough. Others had fish dish and it was nothing special. wait staff pleasant and atmosphere nice but not sure I would go back soon
This was a disappointing visit after always being excellent in the past. Service was spotty; almost every request was missed until a second request (lemons, water, bread, olive oil, etc). Effort was made to rectify but . . . Food was mixed on this visit, especially the pasta. Gnocchi was mushy and spaghetti was dry.
Fabulous! And remarkably reasonable! Leftovers were just as good also.
First time at this cozy place. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Menu different and delicious.
Good food with good service. The menu had something for everyone. I would recommend.
The food, as always, was very good. We always enjoy the meals we get. The service was less attentive than we hoped. We had to wait 20 min (unfortunately not an exaggeration) for our server to come back into the room before we could order a second round of drinks. The couple next to us had to wait the same for them to get their bill, which was even worse.
Great food! Great value! Great atmosphere not noisy!
We had dinner here New Year’s Eve with old friends. Good food, nice ambiance, great service!
The food was okay - not as good as prior visits. Not sure if they changed chefs? Service was not up to par. Dropped our caesar salads off and never asked if we'd like fresh ground pepper. We had no pepper shaker on our table, so I had to go to another table in the dinning room and borrow it from there. We were a bit disappointed with the whole experience. Hopefully, it was just an off night for the restaurant, but it was New Year's Eve which made it that much more disappointing.
This was the first time I took a party of 10 people for a New Year's Eve dinner to the restaurant .
The food was delicious and our table was right in front of the fireplace (very cozy). We were not rushed thru our meal. It was a very enjoyable evening! Look forward to many more visits to the restaurant.
Went for New Years as it was too cold to go into Boston. Had a great meal the waiter was excellent😄🍷
Early dinner, very nice atmosphere, our waitress Ashley was fabulous, food was prepared and presented very well, delicious.
Nice to have a waiter that does not screw up our order. BTW where was John? I thought he was a permanent fixture of the place!
Bon Caldo is consistently good. Good food, good service, reasonable price. A good neighborhood restaurant.
Great for a big group and you can hear yourselves. The food was delicious and reasonably priced
Our meal was excellent and the service outstanding. Drinks were delicious as well.
Menu has a good variety to choose from. Food was outstanding. Best time we've had out to dinner with friends in awhile. Service was excellent!
We have been here many times and have never been disappointed. Portions are large—we always get another dinner out of it. Great place to relax and carry on a conversation.
I was only slightly disappointed that no one at the restaurant inquired about the "birthday " I mentioned when I made the reservation. I wasn't looking for a 'freebie', just an acknowledgement.
Gave this 3-star. I expected a lot more. It was an average experience. Nothing really negative other than the hostess sat us with no menus - had to ask for them after 5-10 minutes, and the ownership of our table changed multiple times while we were there. Almost appeared like no one wanted to serve us. The food was good, and the dinner prices were reasonable. We were there for my son's birthday (noted in the OpenTable reservation and also mentioned to the final waiter), expected "singing" but nothing.
