Highly recommended. Have been several times and am never disappointed. Always treated well by all of the staff and the food is very good. The short rib ravioli is one of my favourites. The atmosphere is cozy for a friend get together and/or romantic if that's the occasion.
We like Bistecca. It is a natural choice for dinner out alone or with friends or for special occasions, and it is nearby for us. Gluten-free meals are handled well. The restaurant has well-trained and pleasant staff.
best ravioli I think I've ever had; excellent bison ribeye; even olive oil with bread was a win
Food was amazing, we were there celebrating a very special occasion, however our server seemed very disinterested in being our waitress. She immediately asked us to put in our order as she had a “19 top” getting seated and wanted our order in first. No hello, no how are you and then seemed annoyed that we wanted to start with wine and appetizers. Our salad and meal came out simulateously. Very inattentive to us in general in what appeared to be a 1/2 empty restaurant. We were a table of 8 and spent nearly $500. Although the food was great, the service really put a damper on a very special occasion. That being said, she wouldn’t have known we were celebrating as she was not interested enough to ask much at all. Overall, Bistecca needs to ensure they actually hire servers that want to be at work, she clearly did not!
Brought a friend who had never been. We had some appies and both had the veal scalopinni (which is what I always have) and it was delicious. as usually. My friend thought so as well and cleaned her plate. Absolutely scrumptious
Deadly food as usual. Service was beyond fantastic and she gets the difference between keeping up with the customers needs and not being annoying. Will be back for our 5th time soon
One of our favourite go to places. Food and service are always excellent.
Birthday dinner for my mom. 7 of us went for dinner. Calamari plates too small for the price. The rest of the food was very good. The service was terrible. No coffee offered or more drinks after dinner. The waiter spilt some red wine on my mom and didn’t offer free dessert or anything. The bill took too long to come.
Best meal we've had in a long time; food was unbelievable! Slightly pricey but well worth it and much better taste/value than The K-g.
Our original server took a while getting our drink order.
Order our food from and never saw him again. We ended up just asking someone who walk by if we could order another drink. She was nice and did check on us again.
We were confused as who would get the tip.
Food came way to fast for fine dining.
And we were never offered a dessert menu.
Ambiance was as expected of a fine dining restaurant. Food was of good quality and well prepared. Service was friendly and the restaurant kindly paid for a drink as a birthday gift which was a nice touch. Would return for sure. Expect to be charged a premium for dinner as this is fine dining.
Excellent in every aspect. Service was outstanding, food was mouth watering, and the staff was extremely friendly. It was a special night with my wife and everything went just right. The gifts I had for my wife were brought out at the right time, I couldn’t have done it better myself!! Thank you to all the staff at Bistecca!!! We will be back!
Thank you Stephan for the amazing service!
Great food and service. The free corkage on Wednesdays is the absolute deal-maker. Bring an excellent bottle of wine from your cellar and it feels like you are getting the meal for half-price. Highly recommended on all fronts.
Bistecca is a great place, with great food and above service and best food quality
Our waiter was attentive but delivery of food was aweful. We were there two hours before the main curse was served. They could have used more cooks and servers on this night. It is no reflection on the server but on the management who totally underestimated the demand.
excellent meal great service
good wines at reasoble price
Absolutely love Bistecca, never had a bad meal, staff/service is up & beyond!! Highly recommend
Very good food ...always relaxed Good wine list to choose from. Clients and friends always enjoy.
Went for a 4 course seafood dinner... amazing is all I can say!!
Service was excellent, and the food was hot and tasty. We missed out on wine corkage night but will do it again. Nice to have the manager come by and introduce himself and ensure our dining date night was all good.
Always a pleasure dining at Bistecca. Food is very impressive and delights the taste buds.
The food was fantastic, the wine was enjoyable, and the ambiance was comfortable. We enjoyed the tall, private booth. Our wait staff was pleasant and attentive (and answered my many questions🙂). We appreciated the quiet environment and the relaxed dining pace (we didn’t feel rushed). I would definitely recommend this restaurant and we plan to come back soon.
We took our family for dinner on Easter Sunday. The group included grandparents, parents and a 10, 7 and 4 year old. We have been to Bistecca with the family before but this was an exceptional visit. Our 10 year old...going on 30, ordered the flat iron steak and a lobster tail. As he was trying to get into the lobster, it fell on the floor. Stephan, our server, scooped it up, told M not worry and within a short time, brought him a new one. Our 4 year old, decided that Stephan was his best friend and wouldn't let him out of his sight. Stephan was amazing with the kids! We don't allow our grandkids to run around in any restaurant yet before we knew it, they were sitting at the bar colouring. Thank you, Stephan! You made our visit memorable and happy. Food was amazing, as always. Service was exceptional!! "Imported" wine...special thanks!!!
We had an issue with one of the meals, it was taken care of in a prompt courteous manner. The Short Rib Ravioli is outstanding.
The atmosphere and service were first class! The manager came to see us twice and was very cordial.
My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. We were given a cozy corner booth, very friendly and attentive service and a complimentary dessert. The food was fabulous and the atmosphere was cozy and romantic. We will be back!
We had a fabulous dinner to celebrate our anniversary. The food was fantastic, our waiter was attentive and friendly and everyone made it very special. We will return again for sure. Thank you so much
We have been to this restaurant a number of times. We invited friends to join us who had never been before. My friend said it was the best food they had ever tasted.
The service was great . A lovely evening! You can actually carry on a conversation without having to compete with loud music and restaurant noise.
Great setup and the service was fantastic. Unfortunately, my partner and I were very disappointed with the food we ordered. The escargot was too salty, the calamari wasn't the greatest, the steaks were okay. I would go back to try the pasta options but we'll keep to having our steak night dinners elsewhere.
Amazing food, fantastic service!!
One of my favourite restaurants, never disappoints
As always Bistecca staff, service and food were exceptional. One of our favourite places.
Wonderful evening with excellent food.
Ambiance and pleasant staff was nice but the overpriced and poorly cooked food ruined the experience. We arrived at 7:00PM and did not get our main dish until 8:30 PM. The ravioli was over cooked and mushy and my wife’s pasta flavourless. The manager stopped by to let us know that there was a printer issue which was the delay in receiving our meals and offered us a dessert to compensate for the delays. Tiramisu was bland.
Save your money and head down the street to Sicilian Pasta house.
The service was very slow. They ran out of mashed potatoes and made some hash browns to go with the steaks. They were soggy and drenched in oil. The grilled veggies were also drowning in oil. Will not go back u less the food improves.
My wife and I will be back
I wasn’t very impressed with Valentine’s Day menu and the quality of food. It was quite disappointing considering how much this meal cost
The service was second to none. Glen did a fantastic job. Food was outstanding. I will be returning there.
We tried Bistecca for the first time for my wife's birthday on the weekend and had a wonderful time. The food and atmosphere were great but the service we received was what really made our night. We will definitely be returning and I would I would absolutely recommend Bistecca for a great night out.
Service was very good, ambiance is nice, however the food lacked taste. It wasn't bad, but didn't match the ambiance, service or other rating I've read about it. I had the Veal Scaloppini, my wife had stuffed chicken (veggies were cold). Over all not likely to return because of it's location. We have a condo downtown.
Great food and service for a memorable family dinner!
