Birthday

My wife ordered the pork chop. It was cooked well and came with roasted bell peppers which was not mentioned on the menu. My pasta was great!

My swordfish was not up to Bistango’s normal standard. Thin pieces and tough.

When the restaurant was quite empty at 5:30, our waiter seemed more focused on cleaning the wine glasses and polishing the silverware on the other empty tables than attending to us. With a $62 bottle of wine, we expected him to keep an eye on our glasses but we had to pour the wine ourselves. Other than that he was friendly and professional.

Disappointed. We eat at Bistango often and tried Valentines day. First, never let them sit you in the back room. This is a boring overflow room to make more money. Bland white painted walls with a few painting for sale. You sit there while the music and ambiance are in the other dining area far away.
Second, you think they would plan ahead and order enough food for a planned meal night. Twice the waiter came back to our table and said they were out of that dish. Never again on a "Prix Fixe" menu night, which just mean fixed price.
Also, we have never seen these waiters here and they were inexperienced and probably temporary hires for the busy night only

Took 45 minutes to get appetizers, on a prefixed menu. Also had to ask multiple times for drink service. Had to ask for desert to go since we were going to be late to catch a show. Given it was Valentine’s Day, but on a prefixed menu, with a reservation, at this type of restaurant. I dunno I expect more for spending $250 on two people.

Took my girlfriend there for Valentine's day. Everything about that place was top notch. The food was fan-effing-tastic, great ambiance, and our server Chris was attentive but not overbearing. Definitely will be back.

It was busy and we waited for 25minutes and seated at a small table. Food was excellent, but pricy for a 3 course meal. Waitress seem over welm, but tried her best. We have been there many times for the regular menu which we enjoyed.

Hate the limited valentines menu, ridiculous inflated holiday pricing, and lack of attention on February 14th. Looking forward to trying a regular menu, service, and pricing on a normal night.

We were there for Valentines night and enjoyed the fixed priced three course meal. Wasn't expecting music but the piano player and singer were an added bonus. Food was really good the service was excellent.

Had a great time. It was Valentines Day and they had a prix fix menu that still gave us great choices. This restaurant is at least 30 years old but I had no idea it was there; don’t know how I missed it. We will be back.
