    I have been to the Bistecca several times and always had a great meal except for this weekend. Normally I would rate you 4 star + but on this weekend the rating would be 3 star -. Food came at different times for the three of us, service was not very good, one meal was over cooked and for another meal (part of Arctic Char meal was returned as the rositto cooked in its own pan was not very edible. Hopefully this is only a blip on the services and cooking of Bistecka and not an indication of what the future service could be like.

    It took 1.5 hours to get our entrees; very slow service on a busy Friday evening. By the time we had finished, we were in the place 3 hours. Normally the service is much better. Food very good, server friendly but overworked.

    It was our anniversary dinner and as usual out plans fell through. We found Bistecca through Urbanspoon and made the reservation and 15 mins later we were seated. Everything was amazingly flavorful and tasty. Probably one of out best dinners yet and that included the amazing food and great friendly service!

    I like how you can choose your own charcuterie platter that was great but don't get the tuna it tasted like canned tuna with hot sauce. The veal scaloppini is good but it's always good @ 99% of Italian Resturants. Also tried the chiopion, the Arctic char that was on top was disgusting! Almost in edible and it made everything else very fishy. Overall over priced okish food

    We recently dined at Bistecca for the first time. I was aware of the restaurant but had no idea of the menu or food type. The restaurant itself it not in a location we usually frequent so it's one of those situations of 'out of sight, out of mind' but when we DID see it, we wold usually comment that we should check it out. I am SOO GLAD we FINALLY DID! The food, service, menu, & PRICES were all so AMAZING! We were celebrating a Birthday & dessert for the birthday girl was on the house! It was also her choice! No questions asked and also no fumbling in her wallet to 'prove' it was her birthday. We especially loved the decor & atmosphere of the restaurant for our dining experience as we were out without the kids & that made it more special!

    We had a table for two and stayed there for over 3 hours and did not feel rushed. One of the managers was filling in for the servers due to a scheduling mishap and we had the best service we have ever received there. Our food was cooked and presented to perfection and all the drinks and wine we ordered was very delicious. We always go there on special occasions and we will definitely consider going there again.

    Me and my husband picked Bistecca for our anniversary dinner because we love Italian. We were dissapointed in the lack of service. They were noticeably understaffed and service was affected greatly. My pasta dish was good but certainly not up to par with the price. My husband orded the bison steak and he said it serverly needed more spice as it was void of any flavor. I was just expecting a little bit more.

    One of our group of 4 ordered the special which was "Halibut", it was bland and tasteless. When we asked for salt the waiter gave us a look of disdain and proceeded to grind a large amt of salt onto the plate. We had to ask for water 3 times and our waiter would disappear for long periods of time. The prices at the restaurant are far too high for exceptionally poor service and mediocre food. The gelato they served was at best a medium quality ice cream.

    We have been here a few times before and this time we were disappointed in both a bit in the food, the time it took to receive our food and the service. Appies and entres were "warm" at best. My surf and turf should have been much hotter. My poached halibut was lukewarm and barely seasoned. I understand it's poached - but it should also have some flavor to it. The beef had great flavour, but again warm at best as did the sides accompanying it. The tiramisu was dry and not moist. Total time of service was 3 hours long which is about 1/2 an hour too long. Had a "loud" customer sitting behind our group which was very annoying and disturbing.

    We have eaten at Bistecca on several occaiasions. It is fine dining and the prices reflect this. Their steak is always tender, cooked perfectly. and tastes wonderful. This time was a family occaiasion. They had our table ready, service was excellent and they had a child's menu for a very well behaved 4 year old. I loved the unique vegetables served with the dinner. The Caesar salad was very good not doused in dressing. The desserts were excellent.

    Our server was quick and polite. Our bottle of wine was perfect. Our food? Horrible. Both of our dishes were extremely bland, boring. Our feelings were that we could make a better meal at home. The majority of the food was returned uneaten. A lot of our feelings about the restaurant as a whole are negative. It's quite nice inside but we felt the ambiance was ruined by a few things. First of all, the music. Instead of blending into the background to contribute to the ambiance, it ruined it. It would have been appropriate for a Cuban restaurant, not Bistecca. We were anticipating a fancy meal and evening out. The attire of the servers lends itself to an extremely casual feeling. The corporate logo golf shirts were off putting.

    Went on a Tuesday to celebrate and bday. Server was very friendly but SLOW. I don't mean we were waiting for the kitchen but we were waiting for everything else, water, bread, order to be taken, wine to be served - everything. All the meals were very good as they have been on previous visits. If you are a wine guy (person) check the vintages on their wine as most of the affordable ones are form iffy years.
