Bistecca has been a family favorite for special occasions for over 10 years and it never disappoints. Service is always outstanding, the food is always exceptional, and Chef Morris makes it personal.

Great menu cooked superbly. We visit monthly, and try the attached cocktail lounge called The Grotto for happy hour. Get there early as it fills up fast.

This restaurant is truly a hidden gem in Flower Mound. The service was excellent and the food was great!! I’d order the soufflés because they are bomb! Definitely going back and bringing family and friends so they can enjoy it too!!

Overall a good experience. However, I recommend my wife order lobster tail ( which I had on Valentine’s Day dinner and it was excellent), but this time it was almost TASTELESS! I also had it in addition to a wonderful beef tenderloin. I wish she had ordered something else. It was our 28th wedding anniversary. So her celebration dinner was a flop. I feel responsible.
I wish they had informed us that the lobster quality in taste could very.
Oh well, otherwise a good experience. We like the restaurant and go there often.

The atmosphere is cold, it smells old, the wait staff seemed unsure, and had to be reminded to get us bread and water. For the price of the food the presentation was sub-par. The chief is being held back by the atmosphere his food is presented in and the cold atmosphere.

Normally we have a great, romantic dinner here. However this evening left much to be desired. It took way too long for our waitress to greet us and she didn't seem to know the menu very well. My first glass of wine was the house cab which I sent back because it tasted like vinegar. I ordered coffee after dinner and was brought hot tea instead. Our food was just okay and it's usually amazing. It was also extra noisy that evening when we really were looking for a quiet dinner our away from the noise level children carry naturally.

It was a great dinner! We were there to celebrate my sons 18th BD. About midway through the meal it seemed like the music was turned up tho, and it was hard to talk at our table. All in all tho, a great experience.

It is always a wonderful time and such a pleasant dining experience. Although we eat there just for a great dinner, this evening was a celebration of seeing our dear friend from out of town. Beau, our sever, was right on. He was engaging and fun. The food is unbeatable. However, this visit, the asparagus was short on portion and a bit over cooked. Lobster, steak, soups, delish. We look forward to dinner there again!

Our first time here, and I can’t believe it as we’ve lived in FM for almost 3 years! Great Caesar salad, tomato soup, ribeye and filet! Even my 13-year old who is a picky eater ate almost everything on her plate! We were so stuffed we couldn’t eat dessert, but sweet Anna packed a to go chocolate cannoli for us. What an unexpected wonderful evening! It’s not cheap, but would rather go there than Perry’s and Capital Grille from now on as it’s less pretentious. Oh, and the wine list is quite impressive. Go enjoy a special night out!
