    We hadn't been to the restaurant since it was the Grotto and our experience had been sub-par. The new restaurant more than redeemed themselves by serving very good quality food with an attentive wait staff. The only down side to what was a pleasurable evening was the disturbing presence of a drunken patron who wanted to introduce himself to every guest in the restaurant. He should have been escorted out much earlier than he ultimately was. It was my wife's birthday and she received a complimentary dessert which was over the top in both presentation and deliciousness.

    Had a lovely dinner- first time at Bistecca. The back dining room was really quite loud. Like everyone was trying to talk over the next table. My only gripe was we ordered a $50 bottle of Simi Cab Sauv and they brought out the next step up at $75. It was the Simi Landslide. I didn’t really pay attention to it until she brought the check. I very clearly ordered and even pointed to the $50 bottle. So that really sucked because then we had to pay for our server’s mistake. I will say the pecan butter crunch sea bass was divine. We will be back.

    Food was very good, although the salmon was undercooked. But the noise level was unbelievably loud - we were almost shouting at each other to be heard. Ruined what would have otherwise been a nice evening.

    It was prom night so the restaurant was incredibly busy. Service was rushed, it took a while to get drinks refilled and to get bread, food was lukewarm at best. We were celebrating a birthday. I had called the restaurant ahead of time, reminded the folks who sat us. They totally forgot. It was sad because there were other tables around us that were remembered and we were celebrating an 80th birthday. The entire experience was disappointing. We won't be back nor will we be recommending this restaurant.

    Always look forward to their specials and the blackened sea bass with mushroom risotto and a creamy lemon basil sauce was absolutely delicious. Had the mussels for a starter and were probably some of the best flavor I’ve had in a while - almost a little smoky tone to them. Yum. Our server was lovely and the pace of our meal was perfect. If you can eat outside it’s an absolute treat!

    Bistecca has been one of our go to restaurants for special occasions for at least 25 years. We’ve never had any less than a great experience. The staff is attentive, efficient and friendly. The food is always great. Mr Salerno never fails to come by our table at some point to say hello and thank us.

    This is a great place to eat. The food is fabulous and the waitress staff is always very friendly. We alwasy make it a point to celebrate our wedding anniversary here. The chief usually comes out and greets the customers but this time he did not because it was extremely busy. If you are looking for great food and a family owned restaurant I would recommend this place.

    My niece from New Jersey was visiting, and we needed a special evening -- we had tried to make it to Bistecca before, but this time everything worked out. We had a lovely experience all around, and Allie commented particularly on the ambiance. The food was wonderful, as usual, but of special note are all the wait staff we encountered. Khalih was first rate!! And the young man (Tony?) who boxed up the rest of Sara's divine strawberry cake for us was delightful! Sometimes in a really nice restaurant such as yours, diners can experience arrogance in the staff. Your staff has found the "sweet spot" in their beautiful service of the beautiful food! Thank you!
