Every year my family and I go to bistecca to celebrate my brothers birthday. We lost my brother 7 years ago but bistecca was his favorite restaurant. Tonight our very sweet and wonderful waitress, Ella asked what his favorite dessert was and I told her it was strawberry shortcake, but I knew they didn’t have that on the menu. While finishing our dinner chef Morris came out and spoke to each of us. We’ve known him since the 80s when we first started coming to his restaurants. Soon Ella brought out six perfect strawberry shortcakes-one for each of us and we all shared our favorite memory of my brother. All of our food was perfect especially the she crab soup yum yum, but Morris really made the night even more special and memorable. Thank you so much!

So many great food options - hard to decide because everything is great! But the peppered steak with the brandy sauce is my favorite. Service is very friendly and they really appreciate your business. Perfect spot for a special event or just a nice night out.

The food and service was amazing! We ordered the snapper and crab and it felt like we were back in Jamaica! So incredibly good! Everyone was very friendly! They were running behind so we did have to wait but their bar set up is perfect for that and we went and hung out, were served bread while we waited and had a couple of drinks so it was perfectly fine! Highly recommend the love potion #9 drink if you like a strong/slightly spicy drink! It was so good! It was definitely a splurge for us on the cost but it was totally worth it and a special occasion being our 5th anniversary! They make special occasions special by writing on the dessert plate in chocolate syrup! We will definitely go back!

This is our new absolute favorite restaurant! The service was absolutely amazing from the second we sat down at our table. Our waitress, Ella, took the very best care of us and was very sweet and informative. The chef came out personally and greeted us and welcomed us. Manager stopped by our table to make sure everything was good… This is the very first of many many future trips to this restaurant!

One of our favorites. Prices are reasonable for the quality and service, especially when compared to some of the big-name restaurants. Both the seafood and beef are top-notch, appetizers can't be missed, and if you can squeeze in a dessert, it's worth it. We love the Chocolate Destruction! Chef Salerno is often saying "hello" to guests, and many of the staff have been there for years.

We had a very enjoyable first visit to Bistecca. The food was well prepared and presented, and the service was attentive without being annoying. There were some large groups that were loud to the point of being intrusive, which did take away from the experience a bit. While we enjoyed our experience, we did not find it to be particularly valuable due to the cost. We would recommend Bistecca for a good meal, but only as a pricey option and not as part of our regular restaurant rotation.

Overall good food and nothing to complain about. The AC was not working that great so the wife was a little uncomfortable but once the wine kicked in no issues. Menu is not huge but good selection with good variety. Eddie was our server and he did a great job. I had the peppered steak with the brandy cream sauce and the flavor was outstanding. The wife had the filet and was cooked perfect for her. Once again nice small place tucked back in there and service and food done well.

I was surprised how good the mussels were. They were also great with accommodating my wife's allergies. Most restaurants just leave off the sauce but here they made a different sauce for her fish

What an outstanding experience. We went for our anniversary. I took a chance and made a reservation here as my wife has a favorite steak house in the metroplex we usually went go to. I knew I would be on trouble if it was not outstanding. But hey a guy has to take a chance. We could not have been more pleased. The waitress was so personable and efficient she would have made the evening memorable all by herself. The food (Salmon and Filet) were incredible, sides outstanding. It was a very comfortable atmosphere and we were treated like royalty. Manager and Chef both stopped by to wish us a happy anniversary. I went home a hero and not even close to in the dog house had they failed to deliver. Recommend this place for any special occasion.
