  • "This was the third time my wife and I have been to Sterlings. Each time the food was excellent! The first two visits we sat at the bar and had dinner, this time we chose to sit at a table. The food is what brings us back, the service is mediocre. This past time our server was just too busy to give the quality of service customers deserve who dine here. It looked like a bachelorette party got sat in his section while we were there. The service James have us was not bad, just not as attentive as it should have been. A manager was not present on the floor as far as I could see and it seemed like employees were more interested in socializing with each other than taking care of guests."

  • "Really enjoyed our food, companion had the tuna taco, excellent and I had roast beef slide, which was thick slices of beef. We had a sushi which was the best I have ever eaten. Happy hour wine was a bonus. "

  • "This was our second year of dining here on Mother's Day. It is the perfect location for us, because it sits in the middle as far as distance goes for each one of us. But this is not the only reason. First, our table was ready when we arrived so we were seated right away. It did take a few minutes for the servwer to come to our table but when he arrived, he took very good care of us. Everything was very timely from the time we received our appetizer to our entree'. However the biggest awe of all was how well prepared the steaks were and the side dishes equally as good. We definitely will be returning, it made my day perfect!"

  • "We didn't know much about this restaurant. When we walked in, we instantly fell in love with the decor and atmosphere of the place. The menu itself was wonderful, it was hard to choose what to eat. It was easy to talk and it felt very I intimate while waiting for our food. The food was outstanding. Very full of flavor and the presentation was even great. We found our new date spot."

  • "Yelp gave it two dollar signs but entrees were $25-30 each for small portions. Food was good but it was not a casual restaurant that they call themselves"

  • "Sterling Bistro was a pleasant surprise! The bleu chip and roasted brussel sprout appetizers were both outstanding - not the same 'run of the mill' experience. Our server was prompt and friendly. We'll be back!"

    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The service was impeccable. The food had a lot left to be desired. This place was not very busy but I think if they improve the food quality that would change. The price of the food was high for such mediocre food."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "We chose Sterling's for a meeting, and found the noise level low enough that you could easily have a conversation, even though the restaurant was fairly busy. Service was outstanding, food was excellent. We asked for a table away from the door, and got the table as far from the door as you could get! I would recommend Sterling's for a group, special occasion, dinner meeting, or just an evening out with my spouse or family."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Food was good....service was just ok. Our table wasn't ready when we had arrived....we had to wait about 20 minutes even though we had reservations. Also...the tables in the dining area were pretty close together and the waitstaff kept bumping into my husband."

  • "Me and my girlfriends decided to go out for dinner and I suggested Sterling's Bistro. I have been there several times and have had great food and service every time and this time was no different. This time I used the booking system online, love it! We will be back. Only suggestion is add cappuccino to the beverage! A Great atmosphere to go for dinner with your friends or for a date night! Kicki"

  • "The goat cheese appetizer is outstanding. The Sanders bumpy cake dessert was heavenly. The rib eye steak was too fatty but cooked perfectly. The fisherman's platter was tasty but could have been warmer. Beer selection featuring Bell's products on draft was great but adding more Michigan craft beers to the menu would entice more serious beer drinkers to stop in for one. It can be a bit loud so if you want an intimate experience, you probably will not get it. This might be a nice place to go if they instituted a late happy hour that starts at 9:00 or 10:00."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We've been going here for a few years and are usually happy with the food. Maybe because it was Valentine's Day, but the food and the service were off - forgot to bring the bread, forgot to replace the water. Couldn't find anything on the menu - the wait staff recommended the chicken pasta - it was so spicy it was inedible (no flavor, just heat). Waitstaff cleared the soy sauce and main plate from the table while I was still eating the ebi roll - I was leaving that last ginger to clear my palate...."

  • "Our food was great, as was the service. Got there early and had a couple of drinks in the bar during happy hour. Only negative comment is that the dinner menu is somewhat limited."

  • "My fiancee' and I have gone to Sterling's more than a dozen times. We have never left disappointed. I know Valentines Day is a huge night for restaurants but I did feel like they were herding cattle that evening. The staff had lots of small tables and the food was coming out fast but to the wrong tables. I think they should have trained the staff a little better for such a busy night. Over all they put on a good effort and we will go back again."

    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "My husband & I decided to go to Sterling's bc we wanted a departure from the same old eating spots. I ordered the braised short rib & my husband ordered the cajun ribeye. The ribeye was cooked just right & both dishes were very tasty. The price for each was $22. I also got the pear cocktail (forgot the actual name), which was really good. We had to look around for the waitress a few times to order more drinks, but the service was friendly. The prices seem appropriate, but they add up quickly. Overall bill w/tip for 2 dinners, 2 beers, & 2 cocktails was about $90. For us, it's a little pricey for a weekly visit, but we'll definitely be back."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "This is a little gem in the heart of Lakeside Circle. Where can I start? The service was excellent and discreet. The food was excellent - we tried out the Sea Bass, DragonFire Shrimp and the Goat Cheese Fondue. The mixed drinks were excellent - Pear Blossom and Sangrias. Overall, everybody had a good time. This was supposed to be birthday dinner. The restaurant was very accommodating in allowing us to bring in a cake from outside. I would recommend this to anyone who would like to dine out."

  • "We came in around 5:00 on New Year's Eve to enjoy a mellow, relaxing and "no place to be" meal. We ended up sitting in a booth in the bar area - enjoyed the Happy Hour menu which included $5 cocktails and $5 selective apps. One would think that they would limit the choices but they offered any cocktail - including the good stuff. The apps also included some wonderful sushi rolls that were regular price $12. Needless to say, we filled our bellies on an assortment of wonderful appetizers and drinks - all for around $55. Overall service was attentive and enthusiastic. When dining at happy hour prices- always remember to tip the waitress on the amount that the check would have been at full price - it's the right thing to do!"

  • "We have been fans of this restaurant for some time now and on New Years Eve we were very excited to be taking a couple who had never been there before. Unfortunately, we had a waiter who was in an obvious hurry to get to a party he told us he was having at his house.From the moment we sat down he rushed us to order and we never really felt welcome. i understand some servers are better than others, but I am afraid the couple we were trying to show the place off to will never be back. We will not let this stop us from coming in but we were very disappointed this time around."

  • "this guy did not want to be working... We went for drinks and social eating, had to beg him to take our order, brought us our bill without asking if we were ready, had to start a second bill.."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "Our food & service were both good, but Sterlings sacrifices comfort & ambiance for the ability to cram more seats in. Decor is interesting. We were a couple (with a reservation) seated in the middle of a very crowded main dining room among some large parties. There are nice sized booths around the perimeter....if you'd like one, it may be a good idea to mention it when you make your reservation. A more appropriate seating selection on the part of the hostess would have greatly enhanced our experience."
