A word from Pistache French Bistro
PISTACHE is a Parisian-style French bistro with a Mediterranean twist. It serves simple, delicious meals made with fresh, local and imported products. It seats 180 people and is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
Prices are moderate and the recipes nutritionally healthy. Service is casual and efficient. The atmosphere is upbeat with a definite European flair. The interior is reminiscent of the Art Nouveau, which defined most brasseries and bistros opened in 1920"s Paris. It boasts cozy seating with numerous red leather banquettes, a full bar and giant antique mirrors. The restaurant has a feel of "Always been there". It is classic, retro-modern and sophisticated but unpretentious.
The outdoor patio overlooks Centennial Park, the Fountains and the Intracoastal Waterway. It is shaded with large umbrellas and seats 30 people in a Riviera-like setting.

    Have had many wonderful dinners here. And now the best part is that the kitchen, with ample notice, will try to accommodate special requests. My party, on two occasions, has requested Beef wellington. They were the best I have had in So. Fla.

    As always, the food was superb! This evening, unfortunately, we had the worst service from Louis. The owner, Terry, ended up taking care of us. First, Louis ignored us two ladies and went to the table seated after us - a couple. Then he could not answer questions and then he forgot to put our dinner order in which caused us to be late for the theater across the street. We will go back for everything else but definitely NOT in Louis's station.

    We (two couples) enjoyed dinner at Pistache before going to Palm Beach Dramaworks down the block. We ordered ala carte and enjoyed mostly the small plates. Among us we had the mussels, the french onion soup, the escargots, beet salad, mixed green salad, and grilled salmon. Everything was excellent. We dined on the porch, looking out over the park next door, and enjoyed the ambience. The weather was very pleasant at 7 PM. We have dined at Pistache before and we will return again.

  • The Hidden Gem of Clematis

    Dined on 5/11/2014
    Walked past this place many times, finally tried it. The decor of the place is great, the service was very good, and the food was awesome. We started with the Burgundy Escargots, and one of the only reasons I gave the food a 4 star rating is because I was not a huge fan of the lemon in the escargot. Entree-wise, I had the Steak Frites which was seared and cooked beautifully. Mom went with the Hudson Valley Duck with the Truffle Polenta, which was delicious and also quite interesting with the Cherry Sauce. We shared the Lobster Truffle Mac and Cheese which was, far and away, my favorite dish from the night. The Crepes Suzette was disappointing because it didn't seem to be flambeed as listed on the menu, but was still great regardless.

    We enjoyed our brunch on Mother's Day. When they sat us, they did not have a high chair even though we had noted that we needed on on our reservation. Fortunately, they brought one after five minutes. There were 10 selections on the fixed menu which was pricey especially in comparison to their regular menu but food was delicious and service was excellent. It is a place we would go back.

    My husband and I reserved a table for a late dinner. Our server, Gus was very informative and helpful. We decided to try a few small plates and would perhaps order a meal to share....because there were so many great dishes that we wanted to try them all!! Well.....the small plates were VERY generous.....so we saved room for dessert.....the chocolate crepe!! Dont pass this one by!! Delicious!! Superb meal!! Biggest problem was parking!! We paid $15 at some lot on the street....felt like we got robbed!!

Returning my attention to eating was however not too difficult and sguash blossom was a pleasant adventure...

    We were a party of 8. The burgers were cooked perfect and the onion soup was too. The fries and mussels were delicious and were gobbled up. The swordfish entree was on the small side but everyone loved it. The service was sporadic. The food was delivered in a timely manner but had to look for waitress to get drinks. She was pleasant though and busy. The cappuccinos were a great way to end the meal before going to see a show at Kravis. Would definitely go back. Have been there many times and always enjoyed ourselves.

    Great restaurant in a lively night spot on Clematis Street. Apart from a slight hiccup with a poor welcome from a disinterested hostess, the rest of the evening was excellent. Food was very good, creative and full of flavour. The location is very close, but not too close, to the bustle of Clematis Street and has wonderful atmosphere with the doors open to the street. Service at the table was very attentive and of high quality. Will definitely be returning.
