Bistecca Italian Steakhouse & Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
The staff was all very friendly however we were ignored while at the bar waiting for our table.. I got a cut on my hand from the chair and the waitress bandaged me up and the manager apologized, not their fault but still put a bit of a damper on the evening.
Second time visit at Bistecca. Spur of the moment date night dinner while we were in the area. Absolutely fabulous dinner from beginning to end. Front hostess and coat check was smooth and friendly. Great service with helpful suggestions while ordering. Wine glass regularly topped up. To top it off the meal tasted wonderfully! Perfect evening see you again!
It's a great restaurant, food And service is excellent, our only problem was that when we arrived they says we had cancelled the reservation, which we didn't do. We had cancelled the original December 8 reservation and rebooked for the 30th, so some miscommunication but they had a table thank goodness.
Since the last time we visited Bistecca a couple years ago, the quality and taste of the food is consistent. Light and flavorful without overpowering. The three of us girls ordered 2 appetizers and 3 plates of pasta. Pasta was well made but the surprising factor was the server did not offer the half size option. Which was not out of the ordinary but was understood by the 3rd maitre’d that the leftover is meant for lunch for next day so the expectation is to sell by large plates. We were so full we were unable to enjoy desserts. Big portions but would’ve been 5 star experience if it was well rounded.
Overall, our dinner was enjoyable. It was a quieter evening so the ambience was nice for a business appreciation dinner that was being held. The food was good to very good, but not off the charts by any means. Our server was efficient, but had almost a cold element to her in her efficiency. It wasn't bad service, just not what I would call friendly.
Excellent food and service. The staff are attentive, efficient, friendly, but not too friendly. We took advantage of the Bring Your Own Wine Wednesday. We brought our own good wine and spent more on the main meal and dessert. Good food plus good conversation equals a splendid experience.
I had not been to Bistecca in years but I will not wait that long until I go again. I had the daily fish special which was excellent. If you want a restaurant where the waiters are exceptional with good quality food and where you can actually hear your dinner companions this is the perfect place. Keep up the good work Bistecca
Took my girlfriend to celebrate her birthday....requested and received one of the funky tables for 2 with the high backrests where u sit side-by-side which set up evening for enjoyable, intimate experience ... food and service spectacular as always!... Will definitely be back soon.
Had a family birthday. Service was slow. Waiter appeared only to bring food.
Water was not replenished.
Daughter’s steak was dry and manager told her she order the wrong cut. Another person at our table had same steak and was ok. You can as a manager apologize for the issue, but don’t tell your customer that they ordered the wrong steak.
Waiter made the special dessert without asking if it was ok, just assumed( it was not charged and not what the Birthday people wanted).
Overall not the best experience at this restaurant.
Most of the other dishes were either good or very good.
Food was excellent, although on the pricey end. Service was okay, but very slow. Our reservation was at 6 pm on a Monday night and our main course was finally served at 7:30 pm. The waiter would disappear on us, then someone else would serve or inquire, then waiter would reappear??? We didn't order dessert because no came back to us for some time, so decided we had sat long enough.
Wine was a bit of a let down. Service was worthy of accommodation and food was decent. Almost chipped my tooth on a chunk of bone in my ribeye. Supposed to be the top cut and size they offer. Wasn’t that impressive and could have been trimmed and better prepared in my opinion.
Beautiful ambiance. Great manager; very nice. Our waitress seemed new as she had to keep leaving to get answers to our questions..but that's ok..everyone is new at one time or another.
The reason we won't return is what happened with our drinks.
We have never been served Caesars that are diluted before. You could actually see through the drink. We thought that odd. They didn't taste like a typical Caesar. No flavor, very watery.
When asked how our drinks we're, we mentioned that, and the waiter offered new drinks. We ordered a rye & coke and a rye & ginger ale. We waited 20 min for this. We thought they forgot.
Both drinks came totally flat. Not one bubble. We didn't complain because we didnt want to wait for another drink. We just left afterwards not impressed. Maybe the bartender just had a bad night. I would suggest to just stick to the wines.
Caesar salad was very fishy and soggy from heavy anchovies and dressing. The steak was excellent though.
Don't think we'll go back.
Atmosphere was great. Loved the Mussels, the jalapeno in the Calamari was awesome. I particularly loved the martinis. I had the Char and it was DEADLY. My husband's steak was a little off from what he was expecting, but the restaurant manager, and staff bent over backwards to try and make it up to him, so to me, that is absolutely worth noting because their customer service was definitely top shelf. No doubt about it. Next time I'd love to try their pasta.
Our sever, I really wish I had gotten his name, was really attentive and personable. Thank you!
Tasty food, excellent service, and friendly atmosphere. Ordered Caesar salad but forgot to specify the unroasted romaine lettuce version. The waiter, Glenn, brought us the roasted version. We apologized for not being specific. He apologized for not double checking. Took the roasted version back and got us our preferred type. Classy.
The atmosphere was amazing, we went on thanksgiving Monday and it wasn’t too busy.
Our servers( sorry names elude me) were the best I have experienced for a long while, the appetizers, salad and beef rib Ravioli were spectacular, I had the New York Steak and it was Ok.
The Flambé desert was delicious and prepared at our table, they even comped it.
My daughter had recommended Bistecca as she has gone a couple times
I would recommend to others. I would go back just for they way we were treated by staff alone.
We had a great Anniversary Dinner.
Love Italian food so this was a good choice. The service was excellent and the ambiance was great. We were here for a get together with friends so this place was perfect. It was quiet, there were no children, nice place for adults, able to hold a relaxed conversation. Will definitely come back and will definitely refer friends and family.
