We recently discovered Bistecca and this was only our second visit. We were celebrating a 50th birthday and Bistecca did not disappoint. Bistecca has excellent food, service, and ambiance. Bistecca has become our favorite and we will certainly be back soon.

Food quality is excellent, as is the formal food service. However, the ambiance is banal, and the pricing is quite high.

We had a lovely meal (steaks cooked to perfection, vegetable side dish options, and fresh salads) with friends. The necessity of walking through the large casino reeking of smoke to reach the restaurant was offensive and will be a deterrent to a return.

The salmon was a little bland but it still good. The crab cake & steak were EXCELLENT! Pricey but excellent food and service.

Bistecca was so so good! Our waitress was extremely professional and attentive. The food was excellent. I recommend the fillet Oscar, done medium of course. I would definitely go back as a special treat every once in a while! I would also love to come back during a race to view from lunch!

Our server was very friendly and accommodating. The water glassed were filled promptly. We did receive our salads, wine and bread very quickly but did have to wait for our main course over a half hour.

Our servers were great. Very friend and attentive. But the food was another thing. We havent been there in a few years. The menu was alot smaller this time. And for the price. The sea bass should have been alot better. Would not return.

Overall everything was very nice. However I was a little disappointed that they asked and I stressed, that it was our anniversary. They made not one mention of it nor did they take any steps to acknowledge it or do anything beyond normal dinner. I think if you’re going to ask if it’s a special occasion then you should do something to acknowledge that guests special occasion.

Good Food loved the crab app. I didn't like the seasoning they put on the steak next time just garlic salt and pepper the wine that they recommended was fantastic. Will be back.

I've been to Bistecca several time before and in fact this time, I was there 2 days in a row because this is probably the best steak house in the area and I am usually taking people who like to eat steak or lamb. The service is always good and the food is always delicious and arrives piping hot. I don't eat steak or beef and usually order the salmon or sea bass but I wish they would add a risotto (or something similar) on the menu for those of us who don't eat meat. I am taking the time to write a review not because of the risotto request but because of one thing that didn't happen which I believe is an oversight on the restaurant's part. I made a reservation for 4 of us for my mother's 96th birthday and listed that in the OpenTable reservation and also mentioned that when I checked in and they said we had to order a dessert. As it turned out, none of us wanted a dessert and they ended up handing my mother a gift card for a dessert the next time we go there. At first I understood that they have to have policies for this but as I have been thinking about this since dinner yesterday it was a poor decision to not honor someone who had reached that ago and was still able to walk! I certainly did not expect singing that many restaurants do (we had already had a celebration and cake before we went to the restaurant) but I would have thought that as a local well-known steak house that they could have done something small - even one cookie with a candle in it. I know this is not a big deal and perhaps I should have called and discussed this ahead of time but still it would have been very nice on the part of the restaurant to do something small.

The restaurant, servers, and food was great. The only down side was that the casino is going through some sort of renovation and it was hard to find the restaurant. If signage is clearly displayed when the renovations are completed, then I would give 5 stars across the board.

Very nice waitress. The apps were fine, and 3 of the 5 steaks we had were great. However, it's priced as a top tier steakhouse would be and it just doesn't fit the bill. It's also oddly tucked in the back of the casino where you have to walk through the casino to enter

The bar was wonderful.
The restaurant put us in a side room that was alright but not optimal.
The Oysters Bistecca were wonderful.
One of our meals (Strip Steak au Poivre ordered medium) was dreadfully over cooked.
One desert (Tiramisu) seemed mushy and lacked structure. Really good Tiramisu has a bit more substance.

The most damaging aspect of the meal was the poor steak preparation.

We have recommended this restaurant in the past.

The food was pretty good. I ordered a medium steak and I wish it was a little bit less chewy. For the price I wish it cut like butter, but it took a little elbow grease. The rest of the food was very good and the service was divine! I would definitely go back, just maybe try a different menu item.

Everything was great. My only complaint would be is I ordered the chopped salad instead of the iceberg wedge because the description said the chopped salad is made with iceberg lettuce and it was not. There was very little iceberg. Yes...I could have said something to the waiter but I did not as to not want to be a pain but the menu needs a revision or the chopped salad should be made with only chopped iceberg. Other than that, everything was great!

Description per your menu:

Chopped Iceberg, tomatoes, cucumber, bacon, green olives, Parmigiano-Reggiano, croutons 8
