I had a good visit. My only complain was that it was cold in there, almost like they had a door propped open.

There was an issue with the reservation. This took about 5 minutes to resolve with no apologies.
The food was good the service was ok. We were in a corner which was nice but they didn't check on us. I ordered a spiked selzer , and they just left the can. This is a nice restaurant and I would've expected a glass of ice. We waited for the server to return to ask for one but eventually my husband had to get up and find some one.

My boyfriend proposed to me this Valentine’s Day at Bistecca so it will always hold a special place in our lives! Wonderful atmosphere, food, and staff.

Over priced and underwhelming. The prices are set for super fine dining, but the meal is not even close to the price. Steaks were not cooked as ordered, they also were light on proper seasoning. I have tried this place a few times and only went because we were given a gift card from a family member. I would have much more enjoyed a trip to some other establishment, with better food. Our party of 3 was not impressed, except for the huge prices.

We eat there several times a month. The ambiance is perfect for us. Good drinks, good variety of food, great service. The Oso Buco is the best!!

A nice atmosphere but we will likely not return. Food is ok, not great but service in the dining room is consistently bad. Interestingly, many friends share the same sentiment.

New Year’s Eve, food was mediocre, service was OK. Slow although they were not very busy. Soup was cold. Prime rib was ok, definitely not great. They did give everyone a glass of champagne to celebrate which was very nice!

We started out a little rocky. We had a reservation for 4. When we first walked in, we had to wait several minutes for the host to show up. He seemed a little scattered and tried to seat us at a table for two. When we reminded him it was a reservation for 4 he said he only saw a reservation for two. We asked him to recheck, which he did and admitted it was his bad. He seated us at a table for 4 right as you walk in. We asked if we could move to the table for 4 just across the way to be out of the traffic and he said no, all tables are spoken for. We noticed later that two people sat at that table, so not sure what the issue was.
After our guests arrived, the evening went smoothly with good service, drinks and food.

I am only writing a yes for a recommendation on their steaks. Every year my husband and I travel to Billings, for a weekend of Christmas shopping. Every year we look forward to the Bistecca, this year we decided to try pasta. Not the greatest, my sauce was extremely watered down. My husbands shrimp scampi was so dry it was like eating shrimp jerky. The Caesar salad had no taste to it, even with the anchovies. Upon arriving we came 15 minutes early in the bar I ordered a glass of wine we were then seated. The gentleman who seated us/host was very nice made an awesome impression. Our server approached our table with “I see you guys hit up the bar”. I’m certain she was joking, but it was very distasteful. Then she did the same to the table beside us.

My steak came out so overcooked I could've laced it up and wore it as a shoe and by the time the replacement came my wife was done with her dinner. The hostess didn't seem to have any idea what she was supposed to be doing and tried to take my wife's plate when she was still eating. The waiter was very nice and did an excellent job. My first experience here was fantastic but since then it's been sub-par every time.

We had a very large party for dinner. Our server did really great job however we probably could’ve used to eliminate the wait on beverages and apps and avoid being there almost three hours. Food was delicious - everyone was happy- They did run out of a few things and did not notify us about the substitutions which would have been nice to know however it was still good. The steaks were very nice cuts cooked perfectly to everyone’s specifications. Crab legs and chicken dishes were very good as well.
