We always have a wonderful dining experience here at Bistangos. From the time we get out of our car with the valet it begins well and always ends well. The food is delicious and the service is very good. We love to dance, so we enjoy being seated near the band. Funky 3 never disappoints.

We have been dining here for many years. I can’t wait til we can dance inside again on a real dance floor, Cement kills a dancers shoes not to mention it’s hard on the feet!

But, with Covid the management has done a great job with the patio. It’s well appointed with lighting, umbrellas, and heat lamps. They even have a lovely tented area,

I love the salmon and the sea bass, My husband usually enjoys the lamb or the flat iron steak. Sometimes they have Paella which is always tasty. Everyone loves their french fries and soufflés. Cocktails are really good. My favorite is the Bistangos Manhattan.

I’m grateful we get to come to Bistangos on a regular basis. Give it a try, I’m sure you will love it too!

They charged a fixed price(an high) for a fixed menu on valentine, while they were out of few options in that limited range of the fixed menu. We spent 300 including tax and tip for 2 of us and had to choose among what they haven’t ran out. Disappointing

It was Valentine’s dinner, and we were never informed of the pri fixe menu. In addition, the menu had zero vegetarian or vegan options. The website never mentioned anything of a Valentine’s menu. Very disappointing, especially for guests that have dined often and were looking forward to the regular menu, which was on open table and website.

The music kind of threw me off especially since it was Valentine's day. The gentleman playing the piano played sweet Caroline Bah Bah Bahhhhh.
My original plate was wrong but they fixed the issue immediately. The food was delicious. I wish I knew what the sauce for the steak was. Overall, we had a great time.

Beautiful setting for outdoor dining which included a band playing music. Food was very good. Customer service was excellent! I felt the price was reasonable given the wonderful ambience and good wine selection. It was nice to get out of the house and go for a fine meal in a beautiful outdoor setting. Bistango had plenty of heat warmers so my gal pal and I were perfectly comfortable.

We've been going to Bistango regularly for 10 years. It has had some ups and downs over the years as far as menus, road noise, drinks, and food. But we've gone a couple times again recently and it has been fantastic. They have set up a great outdoor and tent area for a really nice dining environment. Food was great, live band, lot of people, good service. Is a really nice place to get out and feel away from COVID in a nice restaurant.

The best part about this dining experience was the impromptu dancing. There was a keyboardist singing fun songs and several people danced taking our minds off the crazy restrictions happening around us. My husband and I joined in and enjoyed every minute. Now, the food and service were both mediocre. Cold soup and over dressed salads reminded me of bad wedding food. But we understand that every restaurant is doing the best they can right now and we will keep Bistango on our date night list.

We ate with another couple in the patio area and it was very well done. All of the tables were near heaters and there was a great 3 piece 60's band playing. They really did the patio up nice, service was very good also. We were told as we sat down that we had I believe 2 or 2.5 hours because they had another reservation. That was plenty of time. The food was as good as usual, no complaints.
