                                            Amazing service + food. Surprised my partner for her birthday after overhearing a dessert we were interested in. Thank you!

                                            Ambience and wait service was fantastic. I most likely won't return due to prices. The food could have better for $300.

                                            The waiters at this restaurant were amazing. I had put that we were celebrating 6 months of being married and at the end of dinner, they surprised us with a dessert. It was unexpected but very nice of them all. We would definitely go back!

                                            Very good experience. Perhaps a bit overpriced. Excellent service. Very good dishes — salmon and fungi risotto. Good pours on the wine. Nice atmosphere. Went there for my wife’s birthday — not for the casino. Will return at some point.

                                            Ambient lighting makes for a great date or anniversary experience. The drinks were unique and tasty. The food was very good. But what stood out the most was service. It was a small team of servers who worked seamlessly to make sure glasses were filled, plates were out of the way, and service was timely. Pricey but worth a special occasion dinner.

                                            Excellent service. Both entrees were bland, seriously lacking in flavor. Very expensive, still no sides with the entrees. Nice atmosphere, great hotel.

                                            Overall I was not impressed. I ordered arancini which were very bland, although the risotto was cooked well the flavor was lacking. Could have had more salt or perhaps more Parmesan cheese in the risotto to give it more of a creamy texture on the inside. Would not recommend. The shrimp scampi my wife had lacked the typical components of a buttery garlic sauce the pasta and shrimp were in. She said there was just too much citrus in the pasta. I ordered a half chicken which was cooked well but lacked flavor completely. It could have had some kind of seasoning on the outside or perhaps a demi glaze of some kind to go with it. The zucchini cake that came with it tasted like a nasty pancake. I also ordered mashed potatoes to go along with my chicken but I never Got them, but I was not charged for them so not a big deal. The bread they served when we sat down was toasted but it was so hard and crunchy it cut the inside of your mouth. A quality restaurant serves a warm soft dinner roll, not a piece of toasted Italian bread that is as hard as a rock. I was excited to eat here but after our meal I will make sure not to visit again for overpriced bland food. If I come again I’d like to show the chef how to make arancini a better way.

                                            Just wonderful all around. We have had 16 oz Strip Steaks several times at other places in the last few months and last nights was by far the best! Better than Sullivan’s, Eddie V’s and Capital Grille. Kudos!

                                            Food was good, steak was very good but very small. Didn’t look like 8oz. The service was great. Our waitress was wonderful and people kept checking on us. At the end they gave us complimentary Prosecco for our anniversary which was unexpected but very nice.

                                            The chicken was raw, and the food was not fresh. You can tell when dessert has been sitting there. We made the best of the situation but we won’t be back.

                                            First visit, couple, 1/01/2022. Everything was perfect - from choice of seating spot to main dishes and service. Very knowledgeable waiters - they were asking question about all sides of meat cooking to make it perfect according to customer's desire. We were seated at the private area (exactly where couples should be seated), our questions were professionally answered, food was perfectly prepared (two different kinds of meets) and nicely presented. So, highly recommended place with an extremely professional staff..

                                            New Year’s Eve dinner with a limited menu. Service was friendly but disorganized. There were two waiters and a bus service employee who would repeatedly ask the same questions. One took my drink but didn’t place an order for refill at the bar. There was a $30 up charge for surf and turf and the surf was 2 shrimp. Cheese tray app was a good start and salad was done well. Fillet was cold and tasted like it was reheated. The plate unfortunately was warmer. Maybe the experience would be better with a full menu and when they were not preparing to stay ahead of a busy evening. Overall experience was fair at best.

                                            Went for NYE. Made reservations for four. They had a Pre-fix menu without any notice. Not online not at the entrance. Did not know until we sat down. Had to stay everything else was booked. The selections sucked. 520.00 for four people with one drink. Felt like we were robbed. Will not go back.

                                            This was our 2nd visit to Bistecca. We decided to come back for New Year’s Eve dinner after the good experience we had on our Anniversary. The menu was limited and pricey but we expected that because of the holiday. The food was plentiful. I had the fish and my wife had the chicken. I have to say although it was good it was not as good as the fish I had at my previous meal. I must say a big thanks for providing a sugar free dessert as requested since my wife cannot have sugar and often has to miss out on dessert. And saving the best compliment for last…..the waitstaff is exceptional. They are pleasant, attentive, and professional. I suggest if you want a higher end meal with great service that you should try Bistecca next time you are at Mt. Airy Casino. Instead of putting that extra 100$ in the slot machine, treat yourself to a pleasant dinning experience!

                                            Food was phenomenal however we were not expecting a price-fixe menu that early in the evening so we were quite “sticker-shocked”. Our reservations were for 4:45 so we thought we would be offered their regular menu, however we were only offered the price-fixe New Year’s Eve menu.

                                            It was the best place we have eber eaten. The atmosphere was beautiful the staff was friendly and worked well together they took very good care of us since we were in for our tenth wedding anniversary dinner and they gave us a desert complimentary on the house on a plate that said happy anniversary. It was the most beautiful dinner that we've ever had can't wait to come back.

                                            The food was amazing. My husband had the filet with truffle fries. I had the Veal Piccata. Both were so tender. The service was great. We have been here a few times and never been disappointed.

                                            Food was good as has always been. However the last two times we were there the service was terrible. Last night we had to ask for additional drinks, silverware and waited 25 minutes for dessert to be served (which was ice cream and was melted when arrived).

                                            Food and service was great! It’s a little too dark in there but I’m sure some people love it. Had to use the flashlight on my phone to read the menu

                                            My. steak was donate perfection. The mushrooms were shiitake which I really do not prefer but they were ok. The service was impeccable. Will definitely return.

                                            I made reservations for dinner to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. Our usual place we frequent changed ownership and the restaurant will remain closed until after the New Year so I decided to give Mt. Airy and Bistecca a try. The ambiance was indeed romantic, the drinks potent and the food delectable. My boyfriend ordered the pumpkin gnocchi with Italian sausage and I had the crispy roasted chicked in a delicious cream sauce. I gave the service only 4 stars as it was a bit slow (if I wasn't Marriott-trained, I probably wouldn't have even noticed). I recommend Bistecca by Il Mulino for a change of pace and scenery, a celebratory event or a prelude to a night of fun at the casino.

                                            My husband and I went to celebrate his birthday. Everything was delicious and fairly priced. They even surprised us with 2 after dinner chocolate drinks on a plate with happy birthday written in chocolate. Service was outstanding as well.
