A delicacy from the Southeast Coast states. A velvety blend of crab, shrimp and fresh herbs. Served tableside!
Topped with pecan butter crunch- roasted. Served with shrimp and crab risotto, baby broccoli and sweet potato
As always - awesome
Normally, this is our "go to" restaurant for special occasions and times when we desire a dining treat. This experience was quite the opposite. The noise level was beyond "energetic", more like deafening. Our server blamed the slow service on an extremely busy kitchen. It may be that during the holiday season and on busy weekends, if you want a nice relaxing dinner experience, stay away from this place unless you have a party of 12 and can out scream the other diners!
All aspects of service, food quality, and opportunity to meet the owner were outstanding. Will be back soon to enjoy more items on the menu
Great dinner ! Chef Came out and greeted us, and everybody in the restaurant. Our food was amazing, and the wine was excellent.
Enjoyed the food immensely, will definitely be back
Great food and great service.
I didn't personally dine at Bistecca but treated my parents to a 50th anniversary dinner there. They came home raving about it all - food, service, ambiance. They highly recommend! I can't wait to go & experience it for myself.
A great place to celebrate a special event. Food was delicious, and for being a high quality restaurant, it did not take a long time to prepare. Staff was top notch as well. I will be going back.
Bistecca never disappoints. The service, price, and especially the food are always top notch.
The food and service were amazing! We will be back!
This was definitely worth the splurge. The food was exceptional. Our service was phenomenal. I can't wait for another visit!
We enjoyed our anniversary meal very much. Our waitress did a great job too. It always feels very romantic and the food is wonderful.
My favorite fine dining restaurant! The food is amazing every time and the service is always outstanding. We are regulars here and will continue to be!
Wait staff was too aggressive and was constantly clearing and checking our table
The service was excellent
Outstanding. Well worth it. Paying for more than just food. It's an experience and Chef and staff put value in it. Really appreciated spending our anniversary here.
Amazing food, amazing service as always. We noted that it was our anniversary and they made sure to take special care of us. We will be back again and again.
We came for my husbands birthday and were thrilled with the service and food. My husband got the escargot as an appetizer and I got the Shrimp Grotto and we each loved the garlicky buttery sauces. For entrees we got the Steak and Crab which was done perfectly and seasoned very well. The Sea Bass was another wonderful treat, the sauces and accompaniments were absolute perfection. We ended the meal with a white chocolate cheesecake that came with a side of white chocolate mousse that was worthy of plate licking.....the meal was wonderful and our server (I think her name was Finley) took great care of us. Highly recommend this neighborhood gem!
Hands down best dinner we’ve had from appetizers to dessert everything was delicious. Service was top notch
We were seated under a speaker. The music choice was lovely but the volume of the music was too loud and impaired conversation. We asked to have the sound turned down and that did not occur. Having elderly hearing impaired guests made the noise level an issue.
The she soup was fabulous! The food was wonderfully prepared and was scrumptious. The Soufflés are a must!
Fine dining, 5-Stars, says it all. Chef Morris creates such wonderful dishes, from the appetizer, to the entree, and then to the dessert. You will loose yourself in the eclectic flavors.
Amazing!!!! Everything about our experience was perfect. The bartender made delicious cocktails and since it was our first time here we asked her for recommendations and she was spot on. I don't remember our waitresses name (not because she didn't mention it, but because I just didn't retain the information) but she was also a great part of our dinner. We ordered a half order of the Steak Salerno, 3 Rockefeller oysters, and 3 Mediterranean oysters for an appetizer. All excellent. For dinner, per the bartenders recommendation, we ordered the Veal DaVinci and I'm so glad we did. My significant other said it was the best veal hes ever had. For dessert the waitress recommended the Rumchata soufflé and it was unbelievably good too.
I like to leave nice reviews for most restaurants I go to, but I have to say that between the service, drinks, our main entree, and dessert this has to be one of the best dinners I've had in a long time. Thank you guys for making our date night a memorable one and we look forward to coming back.
Excellent dinner and service. Ernie was efficient and courteous.
Food and drink choices here are exceptional. For a fine dining experience, this is our go to place.
The good - most of the meal. The duck was excellent, as were the appetizers. The problem with this restaurant is noise - very hard to have a conversation. The portions were excellent, and service was good. But. It is tough to have a quiet evening in such a noisy restaurant. The restaurant needs to be treated acoustically. Other than that, a decent evening.
The steak appetizer was fantastic. My pork cop was undercooked a little, overall flavor over everything good.Their soufflés looked amazing. Our table had one but I didn't have any. I think I will give this place another shot!
Food was very good, but we were overwhelmed by the smell of PineSol at our table when we arrived. When we asked to be moved, they found the source and moved the container instead of offering to move us to another table. Smell dissipated over time.
Speakers above us kept cutting in and out.
Good and service were fantastic, will definitely go back!!
Better than ever. Many restaurants don't age well. This one has.
We were back in town after having moved from TX and being there felt like home to have our favorite dishes and cocktails.
We had a wonderful evening celebrating my husband’s birthday. So nice to feel welcome to stay and enjoy our meal and each other’s company, without feeling rushed. Special shout out to our server Emily.
Chef Morris is a master when it comes to cooking.
Great wine selection, good service and outstanding food!
Food was excellent with a good variety of wines. Server was very good.
The food and service are outstanding. The only issue we have had on multiple occasions is that with a reservation it still took over 20 minutes to be seated and there really isn’t much room to wait. So there are over 12 people standing in the entry way and the opening to the bathrooms for quite a while. We went to the bar area but that was over full and they don’t come and get you there. So we got drinks at least while waiting. The restaurant itself is too good for that big issue. My advise to them is to take fewer reservations so everyone doesn’t start the note on a downer.
It is not an issue about waiting a while as it is there really isn’t room for the people to wait.
Outstanding! My gosh!!!!
We both had the filet with brandy cream sauce, lobster tail, and asparagus. Everything was cooked to perfection!
This is our absolute favorite place. Anniversary dinner and it could not have been better. Love Morris, Eddie, Shelby and everyone there.
Bistecca is always a great experience every time we go. Chef Morris and all his team are fully committed to giving you an exceptional experience every time. They go out of their way to greet you and serve you and make you feel like a VIP.
Every dish we ate was absolutely fabulous, so delicious. We celebrated our 10 year anniversary and it was fantastic. The dessert, Pecan Grotto Twill, set it off perfectly.
Wonderful as always. Our server Randy was very attentive, food was exquisite and always came out at the perfect time. I’m never disappointed when I come here but I’m always upset with myself for not coming more often.
