My fiancee and I celebrated our birthdays on a Saturday night. Our server Victor was attentive and a joy to be with. My fiancee had the lamb chops which were perfectly cooked and I had the Mexican shrimp risotto, also beautifully prepared. We love the live music and that you can dance anytime the urge strikes. We will definitely come here more often for the food, music and service.
Chose this place to celebrate my Birthday with family especially my sis who flew from Colorado. Food was delicious & everyone enjoyed their food. However, service is what disappointed it for me. 1st, the host tried to seat 5 of us in the back center right next to kitchen. Had to wait 15 minutes for a better location. There was no acknowledgement of my birthday nor a birthday dessert and had requested it in my reservation. I had seen the next table with a dessert & candle. Worst part. I had asked our waiter to take a photo of us which he said sure and came back to give me the bill! Had to remind him about the photo. After this experience I don’t plan on coming back. Thank god I didn’t sign up for their VIP program.
Our server was excellent! Everyone was very attentive, food was prepared as requested.
Always a treat... garlic soup is amazing... service impeccable... I tell everyone to go and enjoy a fabulous lunch or dinner.
Been there a few times now. Food has been good but there always is a clunker in the order. Something that is far below the rest. For example, this last time one person ordered The chicken dish - it was tough and tasteless . It was served on top of something we couldn’t even identify. Strange. It is pricy and one would expect it all to be good. Service was fine - the only exception was the valet had to bring 3 different cars before we got the right one!
$20 coupon from Lincoln made lunch very reasonable.
We celebrated my husband's 87th birthday with a meal at Bistango. It did not disappoint us. He ordered his favorite meal, salmon, and was very happy with it. I took the waiter's recommendation of sea bass and was delighted although I don't usually order seafood. It was perfectly seasoned and the mushroom risotto was delicious. We'll be back.
Great as always. Only complaint is that the Chilean Sea Bass is so good it's hard to ever order anything else.
Great as always.
Honestly everything was great. Only issue was with the Valet guy. He was rude and never asked us if we are parking here for the restaurant or not. Our server and food were outstanding.
A favorite for 30 years. Very dependable and classic Cali. Maybe clientele getting a bit older, as a group, like me.
This is the perfect place for a special occasion. From the effusive greetings from the front desk young woman and attentive waiter to the thoughtful mid-meal visit from the manager, the service was first class and matched the elegant surroundings. And the food and drink? It was sublime and generous. The Mojito was complex and refreshing and the Talisker pour was generous. The entrees of an extravagant Paella with Filet Mignon and perfectly prepared Lamb Chops arrived promptly as did the superb Truffle Fries. Finally, the 1/2 portion of Chops and half bottle of wine allowed us to treat ourselves to the exact tastes we wanted without wasteful surplus. We left feeling pampered and satiated. We will return.
Good food and great service.
Contemporary California cuisine in an elegant setting, very good selection of dishes, quiet and well suited for a conversation , live music this evening close to the bar which was good as background.
Service, food and manager Ray made me want to come back and book my holiday party there.
I never comment but the food amazing and the server was great! Very accommodating and very nice. Attentive at all times! I wish I remembered his name. The bday girl spilled a cocktail and most fell on me but he was great to recoup....
Food-,rib steak w/creamy pepper sauce was excellent. Wedge salad different but very good.
Fabulous spot for a birthday celebration! Great complimentary dessert!
Will our waiter was outstanding! The food incredible and the overall experience lovely.
Dinner, Service & Atmosphere outstanding!
Had the Mahi Mahi special. It was amazing. Everything on the menu is delicious and the service is always stellar.
The food was amazing as was the setting and service. This is a wonderful place to dine for special occasion.
Excellent food, fish perfectly prepared. Helpful and personably waiter. Wonderful evening. Thanks
Been a while since we last visited....about 10 years! We will be back Mike was very good!
Best, Steve and Dannielle Schmidt
The service was wonderful and the food was very good. They had a piano player in the bar area with room for dancing and that made for a very fun night. We will absolutely go back again. The French fries are amazing as was the grilled octopus appetizer. The lamb chops were cooked perfectly!
The food, while a bit pricey, is outstanding. The ambiance is moderately noisy.
Fantastic wait staff, great food and great wine prices.
Service extremely slow. Food tough. Dessert tasted like it had been frozen and inedible.
First time it was so bad.
My wife and I have been going to Bistango's since 2004 every year to celebrate our first date, where I took her there.
Great ambiance, good food, and a fully stocked bar.
The drinks and food are a bit pricy, but the restaurant is a lovely place for a special dinner, a bit of dancing with the quartet. The Host, bartender and waiter were very friendly and attentive.
See you all there next year. Saturday, Sept 26, 2020.
Outstanding service and excellent food at reasonable price
Bistango is everyone’s favorite special business lunch location. Food is great and parking easy. Normally it’s fairly easy to talk but this time we were seated next to the outdoor fountain and it was a tad noisy for me to hear across the table. Next time I’ll mention this.
I go there since 1987 when day open and they keep the excellent for that many years it show the right management keep it up thanks for your service
I enjoyed our meal here very much. We had a mixed green salad to start which was well prepared. I had the swordfish and is was done perfectly. My husband had spaghetti Bolognese which he said was good. And we shared a fantastic creme brûlée. Lovely meal and terrific service. I think our waiter’s name is Victor. He was very good.
A short drive to the Barclay theatre.
Our table was ready when we arrived. We had one less person than our reservation due to a last minute change and there was no issue. We had 2 small children with us (7 and 5) and they did a nice job adjusting the menu as needed for the kids.
Bistango is a wonderful restaurant to enjoy high quality and inspired cooking along with a festive and inviting environment. Everything my wife and I ordered was tasty and so enjoyable and loved listening to live cover band perform Beatles and other hits from the sixties! Considering how large a restaurant Bistango is, the kitchen clearly is very efficient and maintains high quality throughout! Highly recommend for a great night out.
Great food and service. Try the amaretto soufflé if on the menu. It was fantastic.
Medium steak very rare................................................................kkkk
It’s was our 14th Anniversary, we had our first kiss 14 years ago at Bistango, so nice to reminisce, Victor our waiter was incredibly fulfilling, attentive and accommodating, from the moment we entered and spoke with the hostess, our experience was perfect, thank you so much, see you again soon.
