Five of us were seated and then ignored. Bread was served all around us but not to our table. We could not get the attention of anyone. Manager made the rounds but not to our table. Portions small. Not impressed at all.

The food here was such a treat. They add a fun spin to a lot of classics (highly recommend trying the clam chowder if you can). Everything was cooked well, and presented in a way that made you excited to eat your meal. Even their bread and butter was to die for! The filet mignon was delicious and the scallops an absolute delight.

Formerly enjoyed Bistango tremendously but they blew it badly on Valentine's. They made us (and others) wait an hour past our reservation time, wedged into a corner of the lobby. After a couple of "five more minutes" we told the hostess we were leaving and were miraculously provided a table (there were about three more empty ones nearby) in a side room, not on the main floor. Someone stopped by and blamed OpenTable for "opening up an extra 100 spots." When I told her I'd spoken with her staff the day before who didn't mention any problems the reply was "I hope the food makes up for it" and she was gone in a blink. The food _was_ excellent as always but the service was perfunctory and rushed and the faux pas at the front was a disaster. Everyone has a bad night and I would've appreciated and accepted an attempt at an apology or a bit off the bill or something but none was ever offered. A really unfortunate evening all around and not worth the price (which I've paid happily on previous occasions).

Like Bistango's and the atmosphere and food. But will avoid going there in Valentine's day next year. It felt rushed and was no more romantic than any other night there.

The tuna was flavorful, the wine list disappointed the part of me that prefers wine not made in the US because many of the wines offered are from the US. Great musical atmosphere once the music begins... then ensues dancing of all sorts. I recommend dining at Bistango at least once.

I took my girlfriend for dinner. I have never been there before, but my date had mentioned it to me. So I googled it and made reservations for Saturday night. The service was impeccable, and the food was delicious. We also danced to the live music. And topped it off with a marvelous dessert.

We dine here frequently and never are disappointed. This time around we had the garlic soup, the beet salad and for entrees the lamb and the pork chop. Dessert is always the chocolate souffle. Our server Noah seemed new and insisted that the Ora King Salmon was wild -- it is not. Ora King Salmon is farmed.

Our first time at Bistango. We came for our birthday dinners - my husband I have birthdays just 2 days apart on the recommendation of Le Grande Barr who entertains on Friday nights. Food was great and service excellent. Music by Le Grande was fantastic.
