My favorite restaurant!!! They make me feel like I’m being welcomed to their home. Amazing food, especially if you have gluten and dairy allergies, they go above and beyond to take care of you.

Had brunch here today and oh my goodness! The warmest outdoor dining experience I've had in NYC, best service (thanks Milan!) and delicious brunch with huge portions.  Me and my girls can't wait to come back!

Experience was not too bad. We had a 8:45 reservation and only got seated around 9:00 but we were offered drinks while we waited. Which we very much appreciated.

Outside area was very comfortable with heaters and a tent. We were able to eat and drink comfortably.

Food was ok. Portions were small for appetizers (shared between 4) and a bit expensive. We got the grilled octopus and tiger prawns, both very delicious. My mother and I got the same entree, hers had about double the amount that mine did (linguine with clams) and was very watery. Hanger steak was great but also smaller portions than we’ve gotten in New York. Plates were being removed before we had finished and waiter didn’t have much patience to take our dessert orders.

Overall for price, drinks, food and dessert. Pretty ok. Bill wasn’t too expensive for 4 (each got a entree and dessert)

I took my parents here when they came to the city to see the tree. Food portions were great. We had the hanger steak, lamb shank, and the flatbread margarita pizza. There many gluten free options. We loved it and would definitely go again!

Ate outdoors on the rooftop on a Sunday. Though it was cold out, fireplace and heaters helped keep us relatively comfortable. Service was extremely good and friendly. Lobster rolls were delicious and served on fresh house made rolls with good hot fries or a salad. I would return.

Bistango's has made the best of NY's outdoor dining restrictions! I was pleasantly surprised that we could take our coats off while eating. It was only 32 degrees out but the semi-enclosed temporary patio space with heaters over almost every table kept us & our food warm. It even felt like a nice atmosphere with the lights and Christmas decor. The food was good, service was great, and we didn't have to wait long for our reserved table. Great place!

Christmas Eve day my husband daughter and I were looking for a nice place for lunch outside in NYC. After some research I found the Bistango at the Kimberly Hotel and what a find. I have been to the Kimberly Hotel Rooftop before so was excited to try their other restaurants. Well it was a perfect outdoor set up! Not only did we sit 6 feet from the other people there but the over head heaters even enabled me to take off my coat! We had a delicious flat bread for an appetizer and our lunches were perfect. My husband is gluten free and the waiter said that anything on the menu could be made gluten free! We each had a cocktail and it was a lovely experience. The waiters were so friendly and the food was delicious and the ambiance was just right. We look forward to coming back again for lunch or dinner and bringing the whole family. It was a perfect setup especially during Covid times.

Eating outdoors in December might be unusual but the staff at Bistango nailed it! Great heat lamps, stellar service, amazing food and all for very reasonable cost. Portions are generous as well.

As someone with Celiac disease, it is always difficult to go out and eat with worry that I could become sick. At Bistango, our waiter went above and beyond with making sure that all of my food and my boyfriends was gluten free so we could share if we wanted. It’s so nice that everything on the menu could be made gluten free- it’s unheard of. Great service and great food. Can’t wait to go back.

Yummy food and relaxing, lovely lunch. Staff were great and really enjoyed the seasonal fall flat bread! They have a nice pre-fix lunch special as well. We dined inside but they have a nice covered and heated outdoor space as well.

We had a lovely experience. We were there for a special event and Erin the manager went above and beyond to create a special area for us. Food was good one - of our meals was way overcooked and not great but other than that everyone’s dish was really good. We sat under a heater which was great because it was a cold afternoon. Service was a tad slow but it was fine because we were all enjoying each other’s company.

I was particularly impressed that they could do any of the pastas Gluten Free even the pumpkin ravioli! When we ordered Capuccinos they also had oat milk! We had a very nice table outside on the hotel part of the street. My friend ordered the carrot cake for desert which is my favorite so I tasted it and we both thought it was the best one. We also hung out there for a while and they were in no hurry to get us out!
