Waiter was not very attentive. Didn’t take drink order or even ask if we wanted anything to drink. Came by and quickly/curtly took dinner order and we had to ask for drinks. Seemed like he didn’t want to bother with us.

The service was great but because of a party with 50 people our diner has a 45 min delay. It was the worse thing of the evening. The food was awesome.

Strega is a wonderful restaurant with a great culinary team at each location BUT the management team on the evening of our most recent visit (4/20) was oblivious to the poor behavior of certain customers. While we were having a nice dinner with family, a group of four entered the restaurant; who had no regard for other customers. You know the type - over-served (not by Strega), outspoken, rude, loud, and obnoxious. The management team ignored their behavior and left the responsibility to address their behavior to other customers.

First of all, I would like to give a special thanks to this restaurant for accommodating a party of 12, with only several days notice! We got together for a pre-race meal the night before the Boston marathon. The restaurant had a beautiful table set up for us when we arrived in a room off to the side. I was immediately impressed! We also had a phenomenal lead server, and a great team of other servers that helped out. Everyone was SO attentive, despite the restaurant being full and the food was delicious! Everything from the appetizers to dessert was fantastic. We all thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Strega Waterfront and I highly recommend it to everyone.

Crammed our group into a small table and were short with me when I requested a larger table. We had 6 and was told I could have the larger table because it was for 7 people. They kept filling the water glasses like they were on fire not getting the pitcher close to the glass spilling water on anything between the server and the water glass. I had to request the slow down on filling the glasses as the table was becoming noticeably wet. It was extremely loud, our waiter was encouraging the table next to us to the point we could couldn't hear each other for polite conversation. Not a classy location, wouldn't recommend entertaining clients unless your looking for party, drinking yell around the room night.

Came here with 9 friends for an easter lunch. Our reservation was at 12:30, we were sitted right away, it was obvious that the restaurant was ready for a crowd, a lot of servers stood by waiting. Our server was nice and attentive but the food was very slow. We ordered appetizers right away after we sat down and our main came in around 2:15, i kid you not, that was like an hour wait from appetizer to a surf and turf... the food was really good tho, but its very pricey for lunch. The surf and turf (half lobster and 8oz filet mignon) was 105$! Altho the food was great, i dont think we will be coming back.

Romeo and his entire staff made our experience out of this world! We were celebrating 2 birthdays, and they truly went above and beyond to make sure we had the most wonderful evening. Whether you are looking for a casual drink at the bar, or a special dinner in the back bay, go to Stegga Waterfront!

We were seated over 30 minutes after our reservation.

Waiter was attentive at first until we placed our order. Apps came out relatively quickly and were good. We packed up the leftover apps to save room for entres. And then waited... and waited... nearly a full hour passed between them clearing our appetizers and bringing out entres. The meal arrived a full two hours after our reservation was scheduled!

The meals were not great. The "special" seafood pasta I ordered (which happened to be $52- the waiter didn't disclose that at the beginning), was covered with seafood and looked delicious. I spent about 20 minutes trying to de-shell everything including the hardest lobster shells I've ever experienced... I was covered in seafood juices with no napkins, moist towels, or waiter to be seen anywhere. It was not how I envision a nice dinner out. The flavors were only okay.... way too expensive for the quality and experience.

Took 3 hours from start to finish. Food was okay, but way overpriced. Needless to say, we missed the movie we'd bought tickets to and will not be going back.

We chose Strega Waterfront for dinner after our son's small civil service wedding ceremony. First off I will say the customer service is exceptional. We were a party of 9, with a couple of big guys. After seating us the waiter noticed we were kind of crunched in and quickly came over and added and additional table allowing us to spread out. He (Antonio) was friendly, attentive and professional. The food was equally amazing. We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate such a special occasion. Thank you Strega for adding to an already wonderful memory.

Came for restaurant week lunch. The food was fine for what we paid for, but it definitely wasn’t up to normal standards. The eggplant rollatini was very good for the app. I ordered the risotto as the main dish and was VERY underwhelmed. It was literally just rice (not risotto). The chicken was super bland. The cannoli for dessert was also underwhelming, overly sugary and tasted like it came from a box. Despite the bland food, the service was incredibly good, so that’s a plus.

We went during Restaurant week. The menu choices and portion sizes were excellent on the restaurant week menu. We ordered an additional appetizer which had ample amount to share for 6 people. We also had an infant in a carrier & the staff graciously helped us find a great place to place the carrier out of foot traffic. Our waitress was excellent. Lovely atmosphere & great food.
