Have been to Strata several times for lunch, appetizers and dinner. Time to share. It's a relaxing atmosphere. Strata's best: Happy Hour, the beef empanada appetizers, for dinner, filet mignon cooked perfectly yet the potatoes on the side shine. The BEST potatoes I've had anywhere. Thinly sliced, packed together in "bricks," marinated with cream and secret sauce, and finished with crusty outside and moist yummy inside. Fantastic. The Sage Chicken is wonderful. Sauteed side veggies are fresh and perfect. The only item I wouldn't try again is the mac and cheese -- more like noodles & sauce rather than baked goodness. Have had good martinis and the wine list is good. Service here is really efficient and friendly. Patio is wonderful as is the live music we've heard from time to time. Very diverse menu.

We eat out fairly often and have been disappointed on many occasions. However, our evening out at Strata was very pleasing. The atmosphere was surprisingly quite enough to have conversation a without raising our voices. Several couples and a few groups that included children were having dinner, but the noise level was still in a normal range. The meal selections were varied enough to accommodate most appetites. Finally, our food was exceptional and our waiter attentive without being overbearing. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Given a variety of more interesting options in the same Vintage Park mall, I strongly recommend to skip this one. Extremely poor service, hard to even call the little assistance we had from the two college students service worthy of an overpriced menu. Had to constantly remind our student waiter to pour the wine, water, clear the table, and other basics that are expected. When food came, some of it was cold and stale, tenderloin was inedible, while some of the filets weren't cooked anywhere near what people ordered. Lobster tails were tiny and with a strong aftertaste, and veggies weren't fresh tasting. Overall, good company, lousy dinner quality.

Excellent food every time we go there. We went on a quiet Thursday evening, and it was a slow night and fewer wait staff. Waited a while to get our water and iced tea refilled, otherwise the food was excellent, as always.

I love this restaurant. A good place for my wife and I to eat out and have a conversation without having to shout. Food is excellent and service is really good, observant but not stifling. Plus they are not trying to push you out the door for your table. Food presentation is excellent. I find it an excellent place for a business lunch as well.
Prices are very reasonable. If you want the glitz of a national franchise, don't go. If you like a good neighborhood dinner or lunch outing, I think you will be pleased.

Entering Strata and being greeted by young women wearing dresses and big smiles is a plus.
