This is our favorite restaurant. The filet is the best of the best. It just melts in your mouth! Also the Piña colada martini is delicious.

The appearance and service were very good, however, as an Italian restaurant, the dishes could be more authentic.

Hubby’s birthday, one of the best steaks we’ve ever had. We wanted spumoni for dessert but they ran out so that was sad. But we had two other deserts that were still delicious. Overall great date night. We’ll definitely go back soon!

We went for my boyfriends birthday. It was a party of seven. We got the sampler of the most popular items. And everyone got their entrees. It was the best food. The filet was so tender the knife went through it like butter. The sauces on everything was absolutely amazing. And the drinks tasted amazing. It was so great. It was pricey but worth every penny.

A favorite spot for over 15 years. Veal chop is the best in town. Escargot is to die for. Very nice wine list. Save room for Creme Brule and or Tiramisu. Many quiet, intimate spots in the dining room for "date night" or other special occasions. High top tables in the bar/lounge make for a lively weekend evening out. Should be in consideration for an HOUR Magazine restaurant of the year.

Food and server were great. One thing that prevents me from giving all 5’s is that I requested a table away from the center of the room to celebrate a birthday ahead of time on line. I we were seated in the center, right outside the kitchen. When I asked about moving, we were initially told they were too busy. We were then seated at a table which easily fulfilled my request. The other table, was never even seated during the time we spent at the restaurant. Nor was another nearby. I was not sure why it seemed as though my request initially could not be honored. Server, food, chef excellent.

The restaurant went above and beyond to make our 50th Anniversary very memorable. From the table setting to the beautiful napkins folded into a rose and fresh yellow roses. The wait staff and owner were so caring and taking care of all of our needs. They make you feel more like family vs a customer. Thank you for a memorable evening.

We were looking for a special place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We found it here!

The menu options were broad including lamb chops and veal. The food was beyond our expectations. We had steak and lamb chops. They were both prepared to perfection.

The service was excellent. Our waiter was attentive and made several great recommendations. We did not feel hurried in anyway.

Lastly the ambiance was very intimate and comfortable.

We are already looking ahead to future celebrations that we can enjoy there.

We have been going to La Bistecca for years and know what to expect from the food, services, and prices. They have always lived up to our expectations and therefore we would recommend to anyone considering a higher end Italian meal to strongly consider La Bistecca.

Wow, from the moment we walked in the door you could tell it was going to be a perfect evening. The place looked great, stylish, elegant, cozy, and inviting. The owner met us at the door (at the time we did not know he was the owner) and we felt important, welcomed, and excited. The restaurant hit all the buttons for covid-19 protocol including sanitizer at the front door. But on to the most important part of a good night out at a restaurant - the food. From the moment we dipped our bread into the olive oil and red pepper puree we were pumped. The bread also came with a delicious bean salad. The bread and bean salad were so good you could fill up on it, but don't, the best is yet to come. The house salad exceptional but we highly recommend upgrading to the Caesar. We are Caesar connoisseurs and this was out standing. We ordered two appetizers, the calamari was 120 out of 100 - absolutely amazing, the arancini was 100 out of 100. Our entrees were Veal Marsala and a 9oz filet. The filet was the best we have ever had in our lives, and we have been to Morton's, Ruth Chris, Roast, London Chop House, and more. The veal marsala was excellent, I actually prefer the veal to be slightly breaded in a marsala but I did not miss that as the marsala sauce was so delicious. The sides of risotto parmesan and truffle mac and cheese were delicious. The desserts we also top notch, the homemade spumoni ice-cream with chocolate crunch topping was our favorite and would order again the tiramisu. I can't say enough about this restaurant, only wish we had found it sooner.
