Bistango Ratings and Reviews
I have been to Bistango many time and the consistent excellence is amazing. I took my staff for a Christmas lunch and the food was wonderful, the service is spot on and because of the set up the noise level is zero. We had a table of at least 16 right next to us and I never knew it until I left the table for a moment. It is impossible to go wrong here.
We were two retired couples catching up at lunch. The service was outstanding. The server was always there when we wanted something and never hovering. We ordered a variety of foods from fish to filet to risotto to cheeseburger. Everything was outstanding. I would recommend them all. The serving sizes were generous for a luncheon menu. It was a bit pricey but worth it.
The staff at Bistango were more than accommodating. We had a last minute reservation at the restaurant and had an event that evening so we’re very pressed for time. We mention this to the host and he made sure the staff were aware, as well as checked in with us throughout our meal to make sure things were running smoothly due to our time constraints. The food was wonderful (I highly recommend the sea bass). Service was exceptional. We made it to our venue on time and are extremely appreciative to Bistango. Well done!! We look forward to visiting Bistango again were we can throughly enjoy this beautiful restaurant!
Food was good. Service was not that great. Everyone we interacted with was a fairly new employee (2 weeks to 3 months). Is that saying something about management? Also, one side of the bar and our table in particular were within sniffing range of the bathroom sanitizer. Not appetizing. But it was our 1st visit and will try again sometime, requesting different table location.
Hostess tonight greeted us warmly and seated us at a nice private booth. We needed a quiet dinner tonight before all the holiday parties and bistango delivered. Food was well prepared and delivered in a timely manner. We've been coming for years and we're sure to return.
Thanksgiving dinner was a disappointment and a poor value given the cost for the selections....turkey and ham are inexpensive. Both ham and turkey dinners were "average" at best. My son had one of the the steak dinners which was excellent. This is a excellent restaurant but the Thanksgiving dinner was mediocre at best...even the pumpkin cheesecake desert was just average. I know they can do better!
The tuna sashimi was fresh and very well presented with water cress, cucumbers, spicy peppers and horseradish.
The scallops were also fresh although I found the accompanying mash too rich for me.
My wife loved the fillet mignon , done exactly the way she requests, medium.
The lobster bisque was OK.
We shared dessert which was adequate for two. The bread pudding was marvelous.
Service was quiet and efficient.
An altogether pleasant way to pass the evening.
Love Bistangos....our favorite restaurant. 11/14 was their 30th BD! We were lucky enough to be there on opening night 30 years ago.....consistently one of the best restaurants in OC. Food is delicious with generous servings with efficient and friendly servers. Also a restaurant where you can hear each other.
My boyfriend and I had a great dinner on Saturday night. The food was delicious (although the super crunchy sourdough bread was a bit of a challenge). I have to say that our server (can't remember her name) was amazing! She was funny, attentive and brought us fresh bread without us asking!! This is a great place for a date or work dinner.
