A word from Bistecca Fiorentina

Also featuring other steak house favorites and authentic Tuscan dishes with a specialty in wild game"Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Nice dining experience but somewhat on the pricey side. I would advise shopping around on 46th for a better deal. Back in the day this eatery would let you substitute a side of pasta for the veggie accompaniement, no charge. Not the case today. The wine service was a bit rushed in an attempt to prompt ordering more. Unlike previous visits, there were not many diners on site for our 8 pm reservation. Food was very good with the exception of a rissotto entre that was looking more like a side dish than an entre. Used to love this place but ready to move on."

  • "A great place to go for a quiet lunch or a romantic meal. Loved the clean, crisp feel of the place--white tablecloths, fresh flowers, pictures of Tuscany. I went for pre-theater lunch. The location was ideal, prices reasonable and the food tasty and fresh. Classic show tunes were played in the background as a plus! Great service and no pressure--we felt like we could sit and relax before the show."

  • "Service staff was professional and polite . the portions of the food were just right for the evening. It is a little pricey but any quality restaurant in NY is pricey."

  • "We wanted a meal away from the tourist area and found Bistecca Fiorentina. We arrived after 8 pm (and after the theater rush) and enjoyed a lovely, quiet dinner. The food was delicious and our service was very attentive."

  • "Good food, good service, well-priced. Just a little too noisy, and the restaurant still had empty tables. We will be back."

  • "A friend told me about this place and told me that I had to try it! We made reservations for supper and thought the food and service were fantastic!! Price was very decent as well. Definitely a place I would go back too and would recommend to others."

  • "We arrived exactly on time. Our reservation was verified on their computer system but not registered that we had arrived. Hence, a later email from Open Table asking why we did not honor our reservation. Food was great, all four different entrees. Service began well but soon became slow and surly. If I had wanted that kind of service I would have gone to a French restaurant."

  • "Whenever I go to Manhattan for the theatre I go to Bistecca Florentina. I am never disappointed in the food or the service. Why go anywhere else when you find a good place? I've been going there for years."

  • "There were three of us eating at 8:30PM before a late 10:00PM curtain. The staff was very friendly, a bit funny, and prompt with their service. For the first course we all had a different salad each of which were delicious. The second course included a mushroom ravioli which was outstanding as was the steak that was served. My zuppe de pesc (fish stew) had a great broth but the shrimp came in their shells and I hate that as that makes it messy to eat. One of the best theatre district restaurants I've eaten in."

  • "A wonderful restaurant with great character, excellent service from a team who genuinely want you to enjoy your time with them. The food is wonderful; some of the best steak I have eaten and at a more sensible price than the ridiculous rates in some poster's venues."

  • "Had eaten here about a month ago and found the food to be more tasty and better presented than this time...it was just ok. I had the veal medallions with asparagus and it was the parmesan cheese on top that gave it any flavor. Staff is friendly and nice but not overly attentive. Location is great, close to theaters and that is why we selected it. Décor could use a bit of updating. Would probably try it again, maybe they were having an off night!"

  • "We visited in May, 2014 and were pleased with the experience; turn off busy 8th avenue onto this block of quiet, delicious restaurants. Service was outstanding; we ordered off the pre-theater menu, which included an appetizer/salad, an entree and dessert. Prior to dessert, we were close to our theater time, so they hurried things right along. Really impressed!"

  • "Bistecca Fiorentina did not meet our expectations, despite the fact that it was recommended by a good friend. One of the dishes we ordered, at considerable expense, was a salmon / pasta / asparagus dish that, while tasty, literally had 3 tiny pieces of salmon in it! When I politely mentioned this to our waiter, I was greeted with a hostile glare! This was especially unexpected as we spoke with a lovely, friendly woman when we phoned weeks earlier to make this pre-theater reservation. "

  • "Second time at the restaurant as we thought it was so superb the first time. They did not disappoint. Food, service, atmosphere all top notch and the prices were reasonable for the quality. I will plan to go back again the next time I am in NY."

  • "Great restaurant, great food, lovely wine, great service. Shared the T-bone steak, had dozen oysters, 7yo loved the spaghetti marinara and fried calamari. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Restaurant is well situated in the lively NYC theater district. Room is comfortable and inviting with good noise levels. Food was excellent in preparation and presentation. Starter Antipasto was sufficient for 2 and a very tasty way to start a meal. Veal Chop was large in size and broiled to perfection. Veal Marsala was a hearty dish with a plentiful portion to eat. Sides are easily shared between 2-3 people. The thing that most impressed me was that prices were moderate and their wine list contained several choices that were very reasonably priced ($25-29 range) which is difficult to find in most NYC restaurants where $40-50 seems to be the norm. Overall an excellent meal. Would gladly return on next visit to city."

  • "We went to Bistecca Fiorentina prior to an early 7:00 p.m. performance. We were warmly greeted and everyone on the staff was so friendly. I expected this to be just another "Theatre Row" touristy restaurant.... I was totally wrong!! Excellent Food, Great Service..... I will definitely be back even if I'm not going to the theatre!!"
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Excellent steaks and pasta dishes as well as other foods. We started off with oysters and salad for our starters, and then I had the filet and my wife had salmon and pasta for our entrees. Everything was prepared perfectly. Desserts were also delicious. Service was first class."

  • "Service & ambience were great but the food left a lot to be desired. Caprese salad mozzarella tasted stale & chicken florentine had no taste."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "I like strongly seasoned food and Bistecca Fiorentina seems geared toward a bland palate. The space is lovely, the wait staff was responsive without being intrusive. The food isn't bad by any means and my companions who had the specialty steak raved. I had the Theatre Menu (bowtie pasta with salmon, Minestrone, and creme caramel) and it was all rather disappointing. I'd go again only for the Florentine steak."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "We have been to Bistecca Fioretina on many occasions for pre-theatre dinner, and have always enjoyed the excellent Italian, and the fact that the service is efficient if not charming. If you arrive at 6:30 they can get you out easily for a 8:00 curtain. I have to say though that on our most recent visit our server was unusually gruff and unhelpful. We asked for a few items that weren't on the menu, such as Biscotti for dessert, and the answer was "no". Not "I'm sorry, but we don't have it, but just "no". What Italian restaurant doesn't have biscotti? Anyway don't mean to be harsh- this is a great little Italian restaurant for pre-theatre. We were just a little annoyed by our last visit. "

  • "We usually go to Matinees and then to Bistecca on Restaurant Row for an early dinner. The Prix Fixe is an excellent price and the food is first rate. Atmosphere is a good New York experience and they have an A rating. Service is attentive without being intrusive.Never disappointing."

  • "Had dinner here before going to see Kinky Boots on a Monday night. Made reservations but didn't really need to as it was empty (then again it was only 6pm). Sat outside on the small patio which was nice. Our waiter was very nice and friendly. I had penne w/ lobster and my partner had a NY strip steak. The pasta was ok - nothing really memorable and the same goes for the steak. The décor inside was cute. For the price point you could probably find somewhere else that might be more memorable. "

  • "We go to Fiorentina when we are looking for a reliable pre-theater meal. The food and the service are oustanding. They serve quickly but never push you out the door. Restaraunt Row can be spotty and "tourist-trappy." Not here."

  • "The pre-theater menu was good. The food was average. The service was efficient. It appears that many customers were enjoying the steak for 2. My salmon tasted a little too "fishy"."

  • "We ate post-theater. Food was routine at best. I've eaten bistecca fiorentina in Florence, and this was no chianina steak. (Of course it was only 39 bucks too.) It was OK. The pasta was significantly past al dente. But they did a terrific job from a service standpoint, and the pickings are slim in the theater area generally, so overall OK. Probably wouldn't rush back though."
