Not sure why this was the first time I came to this restaurant because it is EVERYTHING I want and need in a nice dinner and date with husband! I actually met with a work colleague for an early dinner on a Friday night and had no idea what I was in for. This place is beautiful, the bar is very chill, and the service is fantastic! Bonus was that they have live jazz music later in the evening.....definitely coming back over and over!
Hidden in an office park, this is an amazing place to dine with exquisite food and service with live music. Extensive wine and cocktail list.
The food was great. Overall, a good place to have a nice dinner with live music. Perfect for a business meeting, it’s not dark and not loud. Service is good.
Wonderful people. We were seated for a late lunch even though it was past their normal time. My date loved her risotto with shrimp but my daily special salmon salad was just a bit toasted and the spinach kind of wilted in places. Given the accomodation made for us I shouldn't complain but I felt a bit short-changed on the food. I didn't say anything due to our late arrival.
Had the king salmon this time. Regretting the decision to not go back to the Chilean sea bass. Both are good, but the sea bass is a must at this fine establishment.
Mother's Day offered a prix fixe dinner in addition to some regular menu offerings. 1st course was lobster/shrimp ravioli, 2nd course was halibut and 3rd was an apple pastry dessert. Everything was cooked perfectly and all courses were so ample that we were able to take half of it home and enjoy it the following day. The service was extremely attentive. It was NOT overpriced, as so many restaurants are on holidays. Because it is located in a business area, it is sometimes overlooked as a great dinner spot. Music/dancing made the atmosphere festive.
Food as usual was greta. Service this time was horrendous. Our waiter would disappear on us, forgot our drinks. Place the wrong order. Just terrible. They have greta management they should be more selective on the staff they hire.
Impressive menu, food, and service. Satisfied six very picky family diners. We had salmon, halibut, filet, lamb chops, tuna tartar, beet & Goat cheese salad, and creamy Garlic soup. Every dish was world-class wonderful. We'll be back.
Always wonderful. The food is amazing and you should always make time for the chocolate souffle - it is the best we have ever found! Great people work here and are always friendly. If you want a nice treat out, this is the place to go.
When in San Diego, I always make
Outstanding food and service as usual — better than usual.
Excellent restaurant, great food, great service, great management. Great ambiance.
Bone in filet full of fat. For an almost empty restaurant we were given a very small table. If your not a regular not given the best treatment. We won’t be back.
Hostess plays an important role because they give the first impression! Then comes the service and of course the food!
I give this five star for all three! Hostess was welcoming, ready and very pleasant ! Service was fantastic and the food was perfect! We shared a Paella and a beet Salad and my guests had steak and fish! All superb and made perfectly! I will be there every time I visit LA!
Particularly liked that you had a 'mini menu' or whatever you called it
Thank you so much for the free surprise birthday dessert of profiteroles which is my absolute favorite,!
Took my boyfriend to celebrate his new promotion. Staff was amazing, accommodating. The food was great and I loved the ambiance, decor and live jazz
The Chilean sea bass was supposed to be fresh but it was definitely not. It was frozen and thawed and very chewy. Disappointed.
All they do for birthdays is day happy birthday as you checkin... no dessert no personalized menus.., kind of disappointing... ordered medium rare porterhouse which came out medium well, ordered pork chop that was tougher than leather
Service was slow and sporadic. Food was very good.
We dine here frequently and it is almost always excellent. This time around I had the "new" halibut and it arrived at the table smelling very fishy. Any seafood should not smell at all or it is not fresh. The appetizers and the other meal were fine. The chocolate mousse was underdone.
Our server JJ was wonderful. the food is always consistent. The menu has a good variety for anyone with special diets. We go often because they will make you anything you want.
Bistango is a very nice restaurant, however it toke them almost 40 minutes during the lunch time to serve me one salad. The food was OK for all of us.
Always a great restaurant
Food was so salted and grease. Sea bass dish wasn't fresh
I really enjoyed my dinner at Bistango. The food was amazing, fillet mignon prepared just right, wine choices were great, the ambiance and service were fabulous with the live jazzy music and the guests getting up and dancing and enjoying themselves. We were give a nice large table with a beautiful white linen tablecloth near the jazz band & piano player, but it was not too loud and just right. Loved the sealing made out of white sails that created a unique outdoor experience. Really loved this place and looking forward to return.
Year over year, amazingly delicious food and fantastic service from valet service to food delivery. One of OC’s best restaurants.
Brought clients here for their third time. This restaurant is their favorite. I know I can always count on great service and excellent food. I am never worried the experience won't be wonderful. As always, we had the halibut and the Chilean Sea Bass- delicious and never disappointing! Thank you for your consistency, it is appreciated!
We had great food, wine and service. The band playing wasn't very good, especially the vocals which were out of tune most of the time. Definitely one of the best spots around however.
This was a wonderful dining experience for my co-worker's Birthday celebratory lunch! The food was amazing. Wonderful service. We had an excellent dining experience. Thank you!
Need better wine list and more affordable it is limited
Absolutely great.Better than the last time and that was good.
Great food and customer service. Ambience was almost perfect. The only thing I would have liked was for the live band to play some current songs. But they were still pretty good.
The ambiance was great. A live band was playing during dinner and some people were even dancing. The food was good and not that expensive. But didnt really blow us away. I would probably go back for drinks and the music.
We tried the fixed price dinner. It was very good and included wine. The service was excellent. Highly recommended.
Despite the fact that we took a long time before we ordered, we were never hurried nor ignored. The service is great, and so is the food. Everything arrived exactly as ordered: one of us wanted extra sauce, one wanted no sauces or butter, and a third person wanted to make sure her steak was served rare. Everyone was pleased! I especially appreciate the “petite” portion options.
Love their live music! Not too loud like others, got the vibe yet still able to carry on a conversation.
We had the filet Mignon and it was excellent, as was our soufflé. Our server, Summer, was exceptional. She was very attentive, friendly and professional.
We have been to Bistango many times (at least once per year) and the food is always prepared perfectly and presented beautifully. Highly recommend any of the beef dishes, Rack of Lamb, the Chilean Sea Bass and the Chocolate Souffle. Those are always our family's favorites. Also the Tuna Tartare appetizer is a delicious starter.
Our first time here was impeccably amazing! We came here for Restaurant week! The food was amazing! I had the pork chop and ahi tartare. And the whiskey bread was delish! I’m a pastry chef and that’s what sold me for coming back here! Too bad we didn’t get to taste the soufflé And our server that night was superb! She was very friendly and really great with suggesting food that is not on the OC restaurant week menu! We are coming back here again! Such an amazing night!
