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.

    I really like to return to this place for its location (overlooking a busy main street, watching children playing with ground water fountains in a small park across and looking at a strip of intercoastal waters). 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.

Very busy that night and service was slightly off, but we had a most enjoyable evening. We've decided this is our favorite restaurant in downtown WPB and recommend it often.

    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.

    We stopped at the restaurant last week and specifically requested a certain table to celebrate our 42nd anniversary (reservations made thru Open Table some time ago). Danielle at the front desk inputted into our reservation the table # yet when we arrived a few minutes early, the table had been given to someone else. Hubby's escargot were excellent, and he liked his pork torchon. My bouillabaisse was ordinary; well under my protein limit! Broth was tasty. The blanc-de-blanc flutes good, wine choices also good. Crepe Suzette good (a little too sweet); offered as a complimentary anniversary gift. All in all, having lived in France for over 4 yrs (met and married there) and visited many times, we were simply disappointed.

    Who ever would allow a large dog to sit at the table, not under it, then be held by the owner as it barks and barks? Children running out of control screaming by all the tables while Dad, an Owner we were told, shouts on his cell phone. For a very expensive restaurant it is more like Chucky Cheese meets Petco. Good money should be spent somewhere where respect is still expected.

    Had two friends visiting Palm Beach from NYC and since I had been to Pistache once before, I suggested brunch there as it was similar to Balthazar or the late Pastis in Manhattan. Well it compared very favorably to those two classic brasseries and we enjoyed Spinach Quiche, blackened Mahi sandwich and excellent frites. Sharing the Brioche bread pudding for desert was a wise move and the Provence Rose was chilled just right and poured by Johnny, our excellent server until it somehow disappeared. A beautiful, traditionally styled brasserie, with a lovely terrace in front with great people-watching along the end of Clemaitis Street where it almost joins the ocean. Will definately return next time I visit West Palm Beach.

    A great location for a post-opera dinner, particularly with the Boat Show taking place just on the doorstep. An excellent bistro menu, well-selected daily specials, and a robust wine list make "Pistache" a great place to eat ! A friendly, knowledgable waiter offering attentive service - and serving fresh bread and butter, all too often overlooked by resturants offering the mass-produced variety. Noisy, but a fun experience - we'll be back !
