Wonderful dining experience at Strega-Seaport! The wait staff was very attentive and made sure we were comfortable throughout our meal! The food was absolutely delicious and the cocktails were amazing! We had the creme brûlée for dessert and were pleased with it as well!

They didn't have two different types of wine we ordered. The meatballs, which is a ne recipe were terrible. Octopus was good. The entre that everyone ordered were terrible. The chicken picante looked and tasted like cardboard. The clams linguini, the pasta was WAY OVERDONE. Hopefully they will go back to their old ways of cooking.

Sadly, Straga Waterfront has slipped. This used to be one of our favorite restaurants. The Service and ambiance are still great but the food is nowhere near what it once was. Some great things were taken off the menu and the food was good but not great and certainly not worth the high prices charged

Although the food tasted ok I spent most of the night violently ill. I suspect I ate something that was bad.

For obvious reasons I haven't been out to eat much since March 2020. I used to enjoy Strega Seaport very much but since the change in management it is not the same Strega.
The changes in the menu has lost more than gained and the vibe is not as lively.

I have been there many times in the past and enjoyed it quite a bit This time the menu was limited,and the food mediocre at best. I had friends from out of town and brought them to experience great Boston dining. I was so disappointed.

Our experience was a bit lackluster. Wait staff and host were great. Main courses were disappointing and a bit bland. Overall, it felt like we were eating in the restaurant of a mid-range corporate hotel.

We went to Strega for my husband’s birthday. I requested the table under the arch and it was waiting for us. Our waiter, Tony, was fantastic! We had the grilled octopus appetizer which was delicious. The octopus was grilled perfectly. I had the lobster ravioli appetizer for my dinner. My husband had the special osso bucco. My was good. His was amazing. For dessert we shared the berries and cream. Again, delicious. My husband had a perfect Old Fashioned. We enjoyed champagne and Prosecco. Quite a birthday celebration.

Salad and noodles the highlight of the meal. Not much of a view due to construction dumpsters. Music was loud and contemporary pop. Ate early. Seated next to other occupied table.

Forgot drinks, forgot food … write it down. Food took too long to come out … approximately an hour for five entrees … one being the wrong entree! Too many excellent restaurant choices south of Boston to even consider going to Strega again. Not worth the time or expense!

The food we got was excellent, especially the light and pillowy gnocchi. Unfortunately they were out of several items for each course of the dinner. Service was generally very good, except for refilling of water glasses. We won't go into the details of the stuck lock in the restroom...

Great servers & attentive staff!! Overall really nice setting for dinner. The lobster ravioli was only 3 pieces, my friends were slightly disappointed in the sizing. My pasta was over cooked but the chicken was spot on. Salmon was nice! Would return and order differently next time!

Have always loved going to Strega, the food is so good. The only negative thing I can say is how rushed we felt throughout the entire dinner. Seemed like the waiter wanted us out, which made the experience less enjoyable.

My friend told me not to go to Strega,it's not worth the money, he was right. The best thing about the place was the waiter gave us great service. The waiter asked us if we were finished,because he saw us sitting there with full plates, I said I didnt care for it but its fine (Because I ate a 1/3 of mine). Manager came over anyway, was asking what was wrong,when I said we didnt like the taste,we have had these 2 pasta dishes in other restaurants, she gave me an annoyed look. Waiter did bring over free dessert . Would not recommend,so MANY other restaurants to choose from

Service was outstanding- decor too dark and masculine for my liking. Food was fancy and lovely presentation. I have had better Caesar salad and pasta at many places fir much less. Would not go back again.

The service was amazing! Loved the servers and the attentiveness. However, the food was simply bad, especially for the price. I got the Rigatoni Bolognese and it was pretty bland, had too much sauce, and was overcooked. The focaccia was tasteless and a mediocre texture as well. For the price it was, I was definitely expecting better.

As a meal Strega was everything we hoped for but the service was lacking. Our server was inattentive to us and we rarely saw him which meant that we often had to wait longer than we wanted for drinks and we couldn't ask for add ons as we never saw him. As for the dining the meal was fantastic cooked exactly s ordered but we definitely waited far too long to be served and when we did we didn't get our meals together. I also expect my bread to come out before appetizers are served not after. The manager was great unfortunately he paid more attention to us than the server. Definitely would go again just wouldn't want the same person serving us
