We were really looking forward to this, but unfortunately disappointed. Most of the food was ok, but my dessert (creme brûlée) came out burnt to the crisp on top and ice cold on bottom...I really couldn’t even believe a chef would let that get to a table. Plus the restaurant was very cold, and the bathroom had NO heat, I literally saw my own breath. Not so good experience and we won’t be going back :(

Food was excellent
Service was bad
25 minutes to get a menu
They were out of one of the specials and one of the regular meals at 7:30
Second order of bread took 20 minutes to arrive
Entrees took almost an hour to get
Vegetables were cold
Not particularly concerned about these obvious issues
Overall disappointing

Have been to this restaurant at least 5 times previously and most food was very good - this time all 4 dinners were not good - pasta was undercooked, chicken so tough I couldn't cut it with my knife - not happy

My short rib and my daughter's salmon w/crab were very good, but some of my wife's eggplant dish was sliced too thick and not entirely cooked through. The top of my creme brulee was burnt and the very cold at the bottom. The service was very good.

I had been to Pistachio Grill several times for lunch with colleagues but this was our first time on a Saturday night. As always, the food was excellent. The service was attentive and the ambience comfortable and quiet--very conducive for the friendly conversation we craved. A neighborhood gem!

I was very unhappy with my experience. My husband and I went out for a date night. Our sever never read us the specials. They were out of filet and swordfish and the soup of the day. My husband ordered the lamb chops they came out raw. They took it back, but left the veggies and potatoes to get cold. They never apologized. Our waiter never came back over to us. When asked about the specials the hostess was rude. My eggplant was burnt to a crisp. The one blonde waitress in her forties , literally kept giving me the stink eye!! The one of the worse experience I ever had at a restaurant. This is my first review ever, hopefully they read it and realize not to treat people so rudely!
