Biagio Ristorante and Bar Ratings and Reviews
Service was a little over the top cheerful to the point of very annoying. The got my cocktail order wrong and sent my wine to a different table. once we received the food it was excellent. I was surprised by the people that would go out to dine on a Friday night in dirty jeans and T-shirt. If you ignore the other patrons, and the wait staff it is very good.
We had not been here in a while, and were celebrating someone having a birthday in our party.
The menu was not anything other than ordinary, and I thought the pricing was high, especially for the entrees. The service was just "okay." We ate early so the restaurant was not very crowded, but it seemed like it took a while for our drinks to show up. They did nothing special for the birthday person either, even when I had noted this on the Open Table reservation. The waiter who checked us in (I don't think he even read the OT reservation), was also our waiter for the evening, so.....Honestly, I don't think the menu or the service at Biaggio's warrant the high prices. I wouldn't rush to go back, especially when there are a plethora of very good restaurants in Waltham. The ambiance is nice, and that is about where it ends.
We were in town for one night. Looked on Open Table to check out local restaurants, we picked this place. I was not disappointed in any way. Very comfortable, food was excellent! Service was outstanding! If I'm ever in the area again will definitely stop in.
I can't recommend the service provided by the staff enough. Above and beyond expectations and this doesn't occur often. Very relaxed meal. We didn't feel like they were rushing us to get the next customers in. We had special handmade pasta fish dishes. We would have liked a little more garlic but that's a small nit.
Everything was wonderful. A slow night mid week. Windows were open which was nice for the air but the outside noise was often so loud we couldn't carry on a conversation. That was the only negative of the entire evening! Would definitely go back frequently if I lived closer!
We had a beautiful rooftop table, great view. Unfortunately our party of 5 waited interminably for our meal...they must have lost our order and after an hour of not even getting our apps, all we'd had was drinks and bread, they were very sorry and apologetic, but it took at least another 30 min for 2 apps to show, then another 20 or 30 min for the entrees to arrive. I'd lost my appetite, I just wanted to leave. They gave us a VIP card and offered free desserts (we declined, we had been there for 2 hours already mostly waiting). We really appreciated that they made sure to let us know how sorry they were and we were really nice about it. It just kind of blew the night.
My meal was MEMORABLE to say the least. The risotto was amazing and I would definitely eat here again. Mark our waiter so great - checked on us just enough but not overwhelming. Good wine selection and quiet ambiance. Windows to street were open so we felt "outside" without being in heat. Will definitely return.
Service was truly excellent as was most of the meal. Only sad note was the caprese salad. Presented as a horizontally sliced and reassembled tomato meant the only the top layer had any basil. Far more important, the tomato was unripe and mealy. Everything else was delicious.
This was our first time here and it was worth the trip. The food and service were very good and plentiful. I would recommend going here for a special occasion. My only complaint was that the waiter did not check us in when we arrived and it took 2 days to get my points. It was not busy when we arrived and even though we told the waiter twice we had a reservation, he did not follow through
We went for my birthday. I have been many times before, but this was the husbands first time. Our waiter was Phil. He was literally amazing. We had other plans so we were one of few tables in the restaurant. Totally ok, I don't care if it's full or empty I'm there for dinner not for the people! We had 2 apps, both amazing. I got lobster raviolis and hubby got surf and turf. Turf was over cooked but immediately taken care of. We didn't have time to stay for dessert, but they put two desserts for us in our packed to go food as an apology. Totally not necessary. Thing happen and we understood. We will happily go back again!
This was a very nice experience ... we had a large group, and they managed us quite well ... very friendly and helpful service. The food was great, and the environment worked well. Also nice that they have clear understanding of gluten issues, and a nice selection of entrees that are or can be made gluten-free.
I was expecting more and left disappointed. We went on a Sunday evening and it was not very crowded except for a large party. The service was slow and the waiter disappeared for extended periods. We ordered calamari-delicious-but it was not served with lemon-and waiter never came to check on us. He did not take orders for our entrees until appetizer was served. Scallops were OK-not the freshest-but were served on a bed of tasty but gelatinous rice. Other dishes-salmon, swordfish, and alfredo chicken were tasty good but not exceptional. We ordered a surprise dessert for our daughter-and the waiter did "dropped it and ran." Overall, an OK dining experience, but I would not return-better options nearby.
Special dinner to celebrate a college graduation, but did not feel special. Unfriendly, unattentive waitress who didn't need to be concerned with our needs or her tip since 19% is automatically added for a party of 5!! We were seated and forgotten about. Took about 30 minutes and several requests to receive drinks, including tap water! Waited much too long for food and wrong entrees were delivered to our table. When our food finally arrived, we had to ask for silverware and napkins and wait again. Food was okay, but not very enjoyable after such a lengthy struggle. Extremely noisy atmosphere even when there were only two other tables with patrons. No one around to wish us a good evening and thank us for coming, as we gladly left. They may be able to do better when it is not a busy commencement weekend, but they should have been prepared for it. We won't be giving them a second chance.
The food was good. Creative Italian. Had the Cioppino. Nice blend of seafood and flavors. Like a little part of the North End in Waltham. Service was timely and pleasant. Would recommend. Would also be good for a large group. Saw two groups and 18 and more.
This was our third trip to Biagio and we will not return. We saw our first waiter after twenty minutes of waiting and we never saw him again. Someone else took over . We waited forever for our wine, appetizers and meal. Apparently our first waiter was new. Our second waiter was on her first night and explained that another waiter had walked out. It was chaotic and unpleasant. The food was cold. They were obviously having a very bad night. Management was nowhere to be seen. At the very least, someone should have stopped by the tables to check-in. As I stated, all in our party of four agreed that we would not return.
Came to this restaurant as it was the only place on Open Table that could accommodate our party of 9 on a Saturday night. We arrived late, and the person who greeted us was none to happy that we were late. This was my fault as I thought our reservation was at 7:00 but I must have made it for 6:30. I'll take the blame for that, but could have done without his attitude. Found us a table fairly quickly as the restaurant was barely half full. We were greeted by a lovely waitress who took our drink orders almost immediately. It was all down hill from there. Drinks took 15-20 minutes to get to our table so we quickly polished off the water on the table. Asked our bus boy 3 times to refill our water - and got none. Drinks came and asked our waitress for more water and placed our appetizer order. Appetizers came out, still no water. At this point we were ready to order another round of drinks. Placed our dinner order, and finally got water. For those who ordered beer at our table, they were served quickly, but mixed drinks took 15 minutes or more. Our waitress was clearly overwhelmed, and let us know the bar was short staffed that evening. I think the dining room had to have been short staffed to because she was running at least five tables of very large parties. Meals came out and were totally UNDER-whelming. Not one of us came away from the meal thinking it was any better than what I could serve at home during the week. Towards the end of our meal, the dining room did fill up and it became quite noisy. Certainly will not make an effort to come back to this restaurant for the price we paid.
