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.
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.
great waiter, we wanted to talk and eat slow and he was all in
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
