    I have celiac, so it was nice to have a completely gluten free menu and to feel confident that the restaurant paid close attention to our gluten free concerns; the servers brought gluten free bread to the table without us even requesting. We got a salad, a pasta, and an entree to share. The salad was good, the pasta was great, and the entree (fish) was very bad. However, the service was good and the servers were attentive.

    Great lunch special and service. Food was very good. We were not seated in the main part of the restaurant- disappointing; instead in a sparse room (felt like we were in a lobby). Aldo there were dead flowers on the table.

    This has become my midtown lunch/brunch spot on Sundays for the good food, healthy choices, and surprisingly good value in that neighborhood. It’s also an easy walk from my church at 53rd and Fifth Ave. - a great place to meet friends from all over town.

    This place was so rude. I made a reservation and they informed me they were too busy and it would take a while for us to be seated. The hostess was the rudest person I’ve ever met and we felt so uncomfortable we left without eating. I don’t recommend.

    The atmosphere was very low key. Service was excellent and the food was amazing. I love grilled octopus, and it's hard to do well. The grilled octopus appetizer was excellent. My guest is also gluten free for health reasons, and they are able to do anything GF. I am excited to return.

    Bistango has become my "go to" place for Sunday brunch in Midtown that is a convenient location, has excellent food for health-conscious folks like me, warm and attentive service, and is not over-priced. So many lovely places closed during the pandemic that it's wonderful to find a small hotel that's reliable for those who love good food that's well presented but are neither billionaires nor on big corporate expense accounts!

    Came here because of the gluten free options. Overall the experience was good, the appetizer (flatbread) was over priced and very thin. Not worth the money. We split the chicken parm and they first brought out the chicken with no parm! We asked for the tomato sauce on the side. They ended up making it agin and it was much better. The gluten free bread was excellent. The pasta was very good as well. Couldn’t even tell it was gluten free. The service was good although they sometimes mixed up our order with another table near us. The manager was very nice and accommodating. He took an interest in our experience. We would definitely go back again but would stay away from the expensive flat breads. It’s tough to find places that are so accommodating to gluten free options.

    We had a nice holiday weekend lunch. Flatbreads were good. Egg dishes were bland. Great for gluten free which some in our group were. Setting was nice. Servers friendly although could have refilled the waters without us having to ask repeatedly.

    We went here on our anniversary and the ambience was great and we were really excited but our server barely showed up to our table and when he did it seemed like he wasn’t interested in serving us,while he chatted with tables around us he seemed to mostly ignore us,the wines were good but the food was plain,hard and barely edible but the server never came back to check on us,we were really excited to try this place out but we were severely disappointed

    A wonderful experience at Bistango. I am gluten-free, but my husband and 2 children are not. The menu at Thanksgiving was delicious for us all. The stuffing was amazing…Best I have ever had. The staff was so attentive and helpful with our small children (even when one spilled a glass of water.) Thank you, Bistango, for another amazing meal. We will be back!

    The food was very good and the service attentive as usual, and I appreciated the option to have the entire meal gluten-free! The patio is a nice setting, well-covered with heat lamps. However, the outdoor area has a problem with pests--we had a cocktail and a glass of wine ruined by tiny bugs flying into them, and we were charged to replace those drinks.

    We had 5 adults and 2 children for Thanksgiving. We had dinner there because the children have food allergies, The waitress was very good with regards to making sure the ingredients were safe. She was very thorough and went out of her way to accommodate us. But the bill was almost $600 with tip. The food was mediocre and definitely not worth this price.
