We love Strip by Strega! The filets are to die for, and the service is very accommodating.

The food was amazing and the experience was enjoyable. Our server was exceptional to say the least. My only drawback is that we selected this location based on a gift card I received from a client from Phantom Gourmet, after calling and confirming the gift card was accepted at the location and to confirm the availability of the prefix dinner that is listed all over the website, we were unable to use the gift card or order from that menu. The manager jumped in to offer a make good experience when coming back, which really speaks to the care they place on the people who come to dine with them.

expensive steaks made well.
Somewhat loud and not a particularly interesting menu.
For the price, no sides but only meat seems a bit penny wise pound foolish.

The DJ was by all means overwhelming, not only did his music need a major update, he continued to yell and scream obnoxiously and all on his own. It was very annoying. As for the food the steak was good but the sides were well below par because they were flavorless! The side of mashed potatoes tasted like boiled potatoes, there was not even a hit of salt. The side of Mack and cheese tasted like undercooked pasta with melted cheese on top. Both sides were extremely bland. Above all, they served lukewarm sparkling water which was very much on the warm side. Not an ideal experience ** specially at those prices.

Calamari was soggy and cold. The service took a long time. We weren’t brought out any bread to keep us full while we waited for our steaks. The steaks took two hours to come out and we’re cold , chewy, and dry. Our reservations were at 7:30 and we didn’t leave until 10. We ordered the creme brûlée’s to go. That was the only saving grace. Our server didn’t check on us for 20minutes at a time. The lighting on the table was missing for the first hour, then the waiter brought a candle to us but it kept running out of flame and wasn’t relit. The price we paid was not worth it. Will never go back there. We should have stuck to a finer restaurant like Davios!

We had a mixed experience. Our waiter did not come to see our table for about 15 minutes until after we were seated. Our drinks didn’t come out in a timely fashion either and we were often out of water. However, our food was very good. My mother got the filet which was cooked correctly. I got the Greek salad to start which was great and a sirloin that was cooked much too well done (I asked for medium). In addition, we asked for potatoes au gratin and were served mashed potatoes. Apparently, this is something that had to do with the head chef not serving them that night but no one told us and we had to ask about why we were served different potatoes with no explanation. We also got the Brussels sprouts which were great. The carrot cake was excellent for dessert.

my wife has a gluten intolerance and
Online their menu says to inform them of food allergies, we did but they had no alternatives so she was stuck not being able to order a good appetizer.
Her entree of salmon was too dry

Extremely loud atmosphere, tables for two are extremely close together making it impossible to have an intimate dinner. I couldn’t hear my spouse across the table and felt if I was part of everyone’s conversation. It was Valentines weekend, so thought that may be why...they were very busy but felt rushed through the entire dinner and honestly I couldn’t wait to leave due to the noise level being so loud...the food was good, but just wanted a nice intimate evening and didn’t realize that wasn’t the place for it.

We have been to Strip multiple times now. In the past we have come on a week night and have always had great service. This most recent visit was in a Saturday evening, so to be expected it was much more lively. Our food was great as usual but the service has definitely been better.

We were running 10 minutes late so I had called the hostess to let them know. When I called, they couldn’t find my reservation. I had asked them to look again because I called and confirmed the reservation earlier in the day. At a second glance the hostess just said “no”. I asked her what she meant and she said “no you don’t have a reservation”. My next step was to ask for management but my reservation was finally found. When we arrived at the restaurant the hostess told us to wait a minute. She wasn’t helping anyone else but needed more time I guess. Another couple walking in the front door and walked past us and were immediately helped by the hostess.

Typically we have had great experiences at Strip but it’s seemed the staff was overwhelmed on a busy Saturday night. Our first drinks were Martinis which were overly sweet and not pleasant. Granted it was Valentines weekend but I expect a better level of service for a steak house like Strip.

Started with stained napkin, oysters not cut from shell, one steak under cooked the other overcooked. No one even asked if we liked the meal. Go to Strega prime in Woburn where we always have an excellent meal. Hard to believe Nick V can own both with one exceptional the other so awful

This restaurant falls short on service
Staff is second class not like a steak house should be
Cant get drinks right not sophisticated at all
With so many other choices don’t know that we would go back
Cant compare your staff to that of abe and louie grill 23 and capital grill
That is clearly your competition
You nee. To address that

Sadly this is another example of star losing its luster in Boston. Food was average at best and atmosphere was tired and dark. Prices are the only thing that remained the same, unfortunately.

Had the pasta with clams and it was tasty. Had to ask for a separate plate for the shells thou as did our neighbor. Why?
The wedge salad was nothing special and for $15 they put only ONE cherry tomato cut in half!!! Really? Practically a whole head of lettuce and one cherry tomato???! I did ask for more and they delivered but still. It’s better with bacon - their version is panchetta. No onion and barely tasted the blue cheese. Tasted like cheap dressing not a rich homemade one as one would expect. Over all a fail. May go back to try something else but definitely will never order the wedge salad again and don’t recommend it. Service was pretty good but I expect that for these prices.

The service was excellent, we had an attentive waiter. The food was very tasty, the steaks cooked correctly and the sides were good. The only downfall with the food was their version of bananas foster for dessert, I had a really hard time to swallow it. It seemed to be accompanied with a no bake cheesecake, reminded me of a school’s cafeteria. The atmosphere looked to be a retro 90’s look with white leather seating and the look of waves throughout, not my taste.
