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.

    We've been here a handful of times and the food, service and ambiance is always to be enjoyed. We had another event prior to having dinner here that included some appetizers we weren't expecting and the staff was very understanding when we packed up most of our meal to go. It was still great to have it for lunch the next day.

    Food was fabulous. We have eaten at Pistache many times and usually order the same thing. Mooles et Frites. Steak et Frites. Onion soup which are all fantastic but this time we ordered other dishes on the menu and they outstanding. Service was great and this is one of the best restaurants in Palm Beach County.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    I had a Steak Tartar that was as good, if not better, than the one I had in Paris two weeks ago. Great ambiance (liek being in Paris) and service (career wait staff, not college kids) and excellent classic French bistro food with decent portions. A very good option in the otherwise weak landscape of French food that is South Florida.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    Finally went to Pistache, with great expectations based on their web site 'puffing'. Didn't take long for disappointment to set in. Water glasses were dirty, and served with bus boys hands all over the rim. Disgusting. Then, the silverware was dirty. Waitress had personality of a glass of water. No enthusiasm, no desire to make our experience special. She didn't even relate all specials and soup du jour. Sparsely any cheese on french onion soup. Coq au vin a disaster. Red wine/vinegar broth was overwhelmingly bad tasting. It even looked bad. The place is hardly worth even speaking about, unless I can stop someone from going there and wasting their time and money.

    Obviously a very popular place in a popular location in West Palm Beach. Pistache has very good service and food, but it's not the healthiest of dishes. But, what would one expect from a French Bistro. For lovers of French style cuisine, this would be an excellent place with a very lively and noisy atmosphere. It would quite warm outside, so most were inside the night we dined.

    The food was outstanding. The best French opinion soup we've had since our trip to Paris last summer. I had the half chicken- carrot purée was like candy. My partner had the filet and was equally pleased. Pistachio creme brule is superb! Our waiter started out a touch cold but he warmed up to us right away...there was a wedding going on when we got there so it was a bit loud at first, but after a glass of wine we didn't seem to notice. We will definitely be coming back here.

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    Tour du Monde '14 offered a hard-to-beat menu for it's visit to the former French colony known as Indochina comprised of Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. It was the most imaginative menu Pistache has offered yet combining Eastern influences in it's choices of spices, vegetables, fruits. The salad of papaya, cucumber, greens & more was a welcome antidote to the summer's humid heat. We both had the seared duck which was partially boned & perfectly cooked--by far the best duck we have had ANYWHERE. 2 halves were served but 1 was plenty if you didn't want to miss dessert. We used our take-home portions the next day in a salad: the duck was even better after being chilled, the cooking juices sealed in.

    Pistache is consistently satisfying, serving elegant food in a relaxed atmosphere. What? An elegant hamburger/ Sure, if it's prepared just the way you asked for it. Its well-rounded menu can be tailored to suit almost any requirement. My favorite dish, Hudson Valley duck breast over polenta, is always cooked as requested. On every visit, uur server has gone out of his way to accommodate the GF-vegan among us, and to make sure the mojito we ordered contained just a bit less rum than the recipe calls for. Pistache is my choice for commemorating or just convening with friends.

    This was a nice restaurant with a great staff and excellent food. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. I met the owner during my visit and he was extremely nice. I ordered the special which was seafood in a white wine sauce with homemade spaghetti. The broth was extremely flavorful and there was plenty of seafood. Not to much pasta, which was nice, I much rather fill up on seafood than pasta. I will definitely return to Pistache Bistro during my next visit to Palm Beach.

    Saturday night featured the cuisine of St. Tropez. Chef Isaac Cervny offered up a fabulous Rack of Lamb (not often featured on the Main Menu). There was a choice of 3 great 1st plates: I had a savory tart, my husband had an equally delicious salad. For dessert, my husband chose a milkshake with caramel and chocolate, it was refreshing; I had a rich, pistachio creme brûlée from the evening's menu. Next time, we will dine earlier, although our table was perfectly located, the live DJ's music was awfully loud, the bass was a thumping wall of sound one couldn't even hear a melody only the beat, it was enough to produce a headache.
