La Strata-Staten Island-Get Your Act Together!

GlendaleGal | Jan 20, 2008 05:13 AM

Party of 8 waited over 20 minutes for our reservation in the very crowded bar area with no room to move. When finally seated, had to wait to have drink order taken & then wait even longer for drinks to appear. Had to ask for menus after waiting another 15 minutes & were told they didn't have enough! Their excuse -a large party had just left & 40 people were seated at once.Water had a strange after taste (soap??), which we told the waiter & asked for different glasses, but they never appeared. The people behind us, who had waited longer for their table than we did & were seated after us, had their dinners before we did. They had the lobster that we were told had run out. Food took forever, waiter seemed to forget about us. Had to keep asking for food. Never asked if we wanted more coffee, but at that point just wanted to leave & could not find our waiter. The food was good, prices not too bad, about $50 pp (plus tip) Seriously not worth the hassle of poor service to try a second visit.
