OpenTable Diner (San Francisco)

Not very impressed with the food. It was lacking in flavor. Service was fine, as well as ambiance. Would not recommend.

Excellent service and very good food. Nice ambience.
We’re picky and all three dishes were excellent.

While the food is reasonably good and the location is very convenient, I am sure I will never go there again, furthermore, will probably spread the word on other forums about my experience. My wallet was stolen from my purse (hanging on the back of my chair) by a very shady looking guy sitting behind me. He and his equally shady looking company left before us, and on my way home, I received several alerts from various credit card companies about his many attempted fraudulent charges on my cards. After reporting the theft and freezing all my accounts within an hour, and filing a police report the next day, I went back to the restaurant just to see if I could recover my drivers license and other miscellaneous items in case the thief had thrown them in the bathroom garbage. While one of the waiters was very nice and trying to help me, I was asked to leave (three times!!!) by the manager (an old guy who looked and behaved incredibly unprofessional), since he was more concerned about diners possibly looking and wondering what I was talking about with the staff, than being a decent human being and helping me.

Our server was Carlos, he was distracted all the time
We did not get our drinks on a timely way
No show for bread
We asked other servers to bring our food
When we were going to order coffee he brought us the check!!!

We have been to this resturant many times in the past but this was a first time inside seating because of weather. We found our party alone in the resturant at 3PM quite surprise since when trying to book the time Open Table said there was nothing available for the time I originally wanted. Next time I will call the resturant directly or just pop in. Food is always good.

Casual or dressed to go out - never feel out of place. Great food for good prices

I had the butternut squash ravioli - normally a favorite for me. Instead of emphasizing the simple, delicious quality of homemade ravioli, they served a heavy, mushroom sauce that completely overwhelmed the dish. My friend had an ahi tuni salad and rated it only so-so.

Open Table stated that restaurant hours were until 11PM. We were flying in late to SJO and thought we could arrive by our 9PM reservation time. At hotel check-in about 8:15, I got a call from the restaurant whether or not we would be coming because they had a lot of cancellations and they would be closing at 9PM. I explained that our reservation was for 9PM. We rushed to get there before 9PM and were served, but felt rushed and did not really enjoy the dining experience. Food was good; the waiter was polite; the eggplant parmigiana was not good. It looked and tasted overcooked and tired as if it was waiting all evening in the oven for someone to order it. When I took the call from the restaurant, I should have taken the hint to cancel and go somewhere else. We will not go back to La Strada.

I asked the waitress to have the ice creme dessert served with a candle for daughter's birthday. She forgot. I had to ask the waiter in front of my daughter. :(
