Bistango is a wonderful restaurant to enjoy high quality and inspired cooking along with a festive and inviting environment. Everything my wife and I ordered was tasty and so enjoyable and loved listening to live cover band perform Beatles and other hits from the sixties! Considering how large a restaurant Bistango is, the kitchen clearly is very efficient and maintains high quality throughout! Highly recommend for a great night out.
Great food and service. Try the amaretto soufflé if on the menu. It was fantastic.
Medium steak very rare................................................................kkkk
It’s was our 14th Anniversary, we had our first kiss 14 years ago at Bistango, so nice to reminisce, Victor our waiter was incredibly fulfilling, attentive and accommodating, from the moment we entered and spoke with the hostess, our experience was perfect, thank you so much, see you again soon.
Service was great! we were free to chat and felt no pressurec to order quikly. Food is hi quality. drinks are priced right and generous. The decor and ambience are relaxing.
First time visit. Party of 4 and everything was fantastic! Salmon, chilean sea bass, soup special....
Great food for a lunch special. Surprisingly large portions also. Our waiter not only gave us separate checks for the 4 of us, but also brought out 4 plates & forks so we could split the dessert (very large also). The nutella cheesecake was outstanding and not too rich - just right.
It was fine
Great cocktails, food is always perfectly cooked, wait staff is attentive and never rushes you and I love the ambiance. My go to place when I don’t feel like cooking or have family in for a visit.
Delicious Filet Mignon was cooked to perfection. Servers were all attentive and yet not overbearing. We ordered the Creme Brûlée for dessert and have never tasted anything so rich yet light. Fabulous!! To top it off, we went to the bar for s nightcap and ended up dancing to the live band. What a fun night!!
The food was good as was the service and the ambiance was very welcoming.
We've dined here a ton of times over the years and enjoy the food and service. However, this time around the menu has grown much smaller -- there were only 3 pastas when there are usually 7; the petite entrees and the section on steaks and chops have both been removed; even the lamb chops -- 2 ribs only on the half order seemed smaller. We are still fans of the chocolate and Grand Mariner souffles and probably will continue with the bar menu but maybe not for dinner.
Great food and wine. Garlic soup was excellent. Our waitress was extremely professional and made the experience top notch
I proposed to my GF on this date night, and Bistango made sure that everything was perfect...THANK YOU
Always love my meal at Bistango. I also love introducing friends to the wonderful food and excellent service. The artichoke appetizer is one of my favorite dishes ever. Highly recommend it to locals and visitors alike!
Longstanding go-to for business lunches. You know it will always be top notch food in a pleasant environment. I usually have the prix fix, but everything else is good too.
Excellent menu, food was amazing, great service and reasonably priced for the quality of food
I MADE 2 RESERVERSATIONS 1 TO SAY GOOD BYE TO AN INTERN AND THE 2ND WAS FOR AN INFORMAL INTERVIEW.
This restaurant is one of best to offer Great quality foods , services, images, cleanness and warm ambiance.
I am very impressed. Thanks .
Great food and excellent service. Love the pre-fix 3 course dinner.
Michael's service was outstanding and a pleasure. He really took care of us.
The black fig with goat cheese appetizer was perfect!
Two at our table had the sea bass and it was too salty, Michael insisted they redo it and when it was done, it was very good
everything else, drinks, dessert, was very good.
the music and dancing capped the evening off perfectly!
My friend and I had the fish special. It was amazing. I always look forward to hearing about the specials, but if there isn't anything I want to try, I have about 6 favorites on the menu.
Bistango is the best value and quality restaurant in OC. I frequent this place.
Food was amazing, service was impeccable, staff was gracious and extremely accommodating.
3 course dinner was great, and at $39.95 it was very reasonable. I had the caesar salad, a large delicious piece of glazed salmon with vegetables and a generous slice of chocolate cheesecake. The service was exceptional, and in the midst of a city-wide blackout, the kitchen was adept at getting the food hot to our tables on time! The servers did not skip a beat; very professional. P.S. Don't miss their souffles!
Outdated decor and vibe.
We celebrated our first year anniversary, great food, service and ambiance.
We really enjoyed our dinner there. Brought two friends and had a delicious meal. Fish and steaks were superb! The service was great and the ambience inviting.
Bistango is one of the very top restaurants in Southern CA. The food is excellent as is the service and ambiance. It is a must visit restaurant!
Waitress KC always make lunch a fun experience. Go there is like going home.
I like some of the changes to the menu.
Went here for my birthday. Everything was excellent. I had the shrimp risotto which was one of the best I have ever eaten
Love this place. Food & service always excellent. Live music in bar is nice touch.
I would only recommend it for the music on a Friday night, Le Grand is the best entertainer they have.
The food just not that great. Need a new chef.
The food and the service is always great at Bistango's. No matter what company I am entertaining it's nice that we can always rely on Bistango!
Very pleasant quiet evening. Steak superb. Duckhorn char a bit too pricey.
Our waiter was extremely personable and provided top notch service. Our experience was perfect!! Food was amazing and ambiance absolutely beautiful. Bistango is a must go for the OC dining experience. You feel like you are somewhere in New York City, Chicago or DTLA. I will be back soon Bistango!
My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at Bistango on July 10th, we were celebrating Peter's Birthday.
We lived in Newport Beach for a few years and Bistango was introduced to us by friends, it became our very favorite restaurant.
Not only is the food still amazing, but the service and ambiance outstanding as we remember it.
We held our wedding reception with you on April 4th 2004, and everyone who attended had a wonderful experience.
Thank you for being the best, we hope to visit again soon.

Superb in every respect and wonderful live blues music.
We were meeting a family friend- an 89 year old lady who is soft spoken. The ambiance, lighting were great so we could have a decent conversation. No noisy crowd, no blaring music. She enjoyed her rack of lamb. I enjoyed the souffle
Still my favorite restaurant in OC!
