We came here for a nice lunch, but were disappointed. The food is ok, but not worth the price. They say everything is made in house, but some of the food (the fries and tiramisu) tasted freezer burned. The service was very friendly, but spotty.

We had a lovely brunch at Bistango and was also a guest at the hotel. As a frequent visitor to NYC I can clearly say the staff and the hotel were the highest quality. In addition we had our daughters wedding at the sister Reston 3rd and 29th street. Having a gluten free wedding was a priority for my daughter and the food was excellent. In addition the staff were very helpful and the service great. Thank you all for a beautiful weekend!

Very nice service, food and ambiance. Especially enjoyed our flatbread, salad and blueberry tart dessert (which was more like a small pie).

Outstanding value and excellent service as my wife and I entertained or were entertained by a friend.. who happened to be in NY on the same dates... we are all from Malaysia and Singapore hence the coincidence is super special.

The food was excellent.. enough variety to meet our varied dietary restrictions and the service was just superb.

I would visit again if given a chance.. for the location and the value and even the drinks just made for an awesome ambience

For someone with a gluten allergy to hear a server say “anything on the menu can be adapted to accommodate your needs” is simply the best - and Bistango graciously offers this. The GF bread, pasta and flatbreads were excellent. Better than others I’ve had. Will definitely return.

they asked about allergies, and took care for those from appetizers to dessert .
The Halibut was cooked to perfection and the Cavatelli was delicious.

My family went to this restaurant for the first time in April 2019 and had a great experience. We had three of four diners with dietary restrictions, and all were able to be handled and were provided multiple options. The entire menu can be made gluten free, and there were lots of vegetarian options as well. Food was delicious and reasonably priced, and the ambiance was nice. Will definitely go again.

I had guest staying at the hotel so decided to try the restaurant in the lobby. I was a cut above most hotel restaurants and the prices were in line with NYC. I was very pleased that I chose Bistango for dinner. And our waiter was great! Wonderful personality and very helpful.

All menu items can be made gluten free - all pastas and deserts! So good!
We took some friends there for dinner on Friday who were not gluten free and the dishes they had were also delicious. Service is great. Noise is not an issue. We go to New York every couple of months and Bistango is always one of in our destinations, sometimes more than once in the weekend!

I booked a table for a party of 10 after a performance at Carnegie Hall. We came in earlier than our reservation time, and they were able to accommodate us early (5:30 PM for a 6:15 PM reservation). The server was a delight, made wonderful wine recommendations. Most everyone ordered pasta dishes, and no one was disappointed, including some of us with food restrictions. We also indulged in dessert, and there wasn't a bad option of the entire menu (we got one of everything, when looking around the table) - I will note that the carrot cake did not seem to have cream cheese frosting, which as a little bit of a bummer, but the cake was still delicious. As a gluten-intolerant person, it was a treat to be able to order anything off the menu, and it wasn't just "good for being gluten-free", it was just good. I highly recommend coming here and checking it out (the butternut squash ravioli was SO good!)

I love the fish tank as you walk in! The restaurant was smaller than I expected, but that didn't take away from the food which was really delicious, perfect for a prix-fixe lunch with coworkers. The kitchen was accommodating with my special requests and I'd definitely go back again!

Service is a little slow for not being very busy. Main server was goo . But one of the waiters kept coming around to take our plates before we were all done ,making you feel a little rushed . Literally still had the fork in my hand and grabbed the plate before I answered .

The service was excellent. We never felt like we needed to summon the server. She was always coming to our table to check in on us. The food was great, as it normally is as I've been to this restaurant several times. The value is okay, typical Manhattan prices so not sure it's a value per se but maybe it's considered a value when comparing other really expensive restaurants in the vicinity.
