Fine service, lovely atmosphere, delectable food start to finish. Refined, fresh, complex flavored. Chef Joseph came out to share secrets in food prep

“Lacked Hospitality!”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Found the service at this restaurant to be less than professional and bordering on a bit curt. We were a party of five with only 3 other parties in the entire restaurant. Arrived promptly at 7, ordered salads and entrees and then proceeded to wait close to an hour before we received the salads. A couple of guests in our party wanted wine....we had to ask to order it.

Our server did not come to the table with an explanation as to why we had to wait such a long time to get our salads. Frankly it was befuddling. When we were served the salads they were quite fresh and nicely presented. Waited a good while more for entrees which were ok. Our server came by and partially cleared away plates while some guests were still eating. I find it difficult to excuse these kind of service errors. I got the feeling we were being rushed out and that the server was less than interested.

“Relies on the good reputation of predicessor 51 Front STreet”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Now known as Strada, fine as a wine bar. Absolutely the worst experience with food and manager. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE. Special for the day was a scallop dish. Undercooked, no browning of the entre. Returned to kitchen after two bites, Manager came and argued : They are not 51 Front Street, scallops airshipped in that day. Charged for all entre's. Now the kick the receipt reads 51 Front Street, phone number same, where we made the reservation. We had driven eight hours to get to BAllston Spa, had done our homework and as you can see reviews are great. This was not our experience.
