Went to Bistecca for Valentine's Day. They had a special on for $100 for a couple off a special menu. This included bread and oil and balsamic vinegar dip, a choice of two appetizers from 4 choices, a choice of two entrees from 4 choices, a dessert to split and a bottle of vine from 5 choices. Pretty good value for your money. We enjoyed the smoked leek and potato soup, tomato boccinni, Coq au vin and beef tenderloin with chocolate tiramisu dessert. It was all delicious. The service was good for how busy they were. Restaurant was decorated nicely and the noise level was good for how many tables were full. We will return in the future.

I ordered the beet ravioli for Valentine's day and it can with a "beurre blanc" sauce, but I did not enjoy my choice. The sauce did not pair well with the ravioli because it tasted like pure melted butter (ie. no shallots or pepper to it). It would have paired better with seafood instead of pasta. Otherwise, the service was fantastic, the wine was great and the ambiance was nice. :)

We have dined well in Italy, so Bistecca was up to some serious scrutiny. Both the pasta and the boulonnaise were homemade rivaling anything we had in Italy. The organic wine was very surprising considering it's price point. All in all, happy to have had the experience and will return.

Had a nice time. Relaxed visit. Food was very good. Excellent wine selection. Local craft beer. Service was great. A bit loud, but we were seated in the elevated section, so it may have been quieter on the main floor by the windows. Looking forward to returning.

We had a lovely dinner and we were seated at the Juliette table. Nice cosy table for two, slightly secluded.
We would have given it five stars but the service at the beginning was extremely slow as The waitress was involved with issues at other tables. We had been seated for close to 10 minutes before she took our drink order. We will say though that once our order was taken everything was wonderful.
The food is absolutely delicious and every cooked item arrived piping hot. The menu is varied for all tastes.
The ambiance was that of a downtown bistro
and we will definitely return many more times. Glad to see a good fine dining restaurant in Kincardine !

The daily specials are very interesting and not the same each day. There are daily special appetizers as well as meals and desserts. Our server was Rena. This was the second time I had been served by her and found her to be very knowledgeable about the menu and extremely pleasant to deal with. The chef came to the table to introduce himself... I thought this was a very nice touch. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. A great part of why I go out for dinner is not just the food but the service. A charming server that interacts with you can change your dining experience good to great... Rena certainly did that. My steak was done to perfection and with the chef's expertise in cooking meat I see why the name Bistecca was chosen. I thank the restaurant for a great meal and a great evening.

OK, it's my fourth time here and I'm definitely hooked. The food, the service, the hospitality terrific.

I had to return for the escargot and the steak tartar (Chef Alex, I need to learn how to make that). Pasta was perfect. My co-diners shared a 38 oz, 60 day-aged Waygu beef tenderloin that was massaged in Jack Daniel's, FOR 30 DAYS!!! Who does this, right? Fortunately, they let me have a sample, OMG.

Thank you again for a great dining experience!

The only negative thing that I could say, was a large group of adults with their small children came in to dine. They were very noisy. I realize your restaurant cannot control who comes in, so I would not fault you, but felt bad for a few couples that looked like they may have been trying to have a romantic evening. I am not sure why people would bring their young ones, as the menu certainly was not kid friendly, although we thought the menu was interesting and what we ate was delicious. Service great.

Four of us had dinner at 9pm. Even though this is late the food was fabulous. Two of us had steaks and two of us had pasta. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the pasta was delicious and perfectly al dente. Service was friendly and not rushed even though our meal was probably the latest reservation you can get. I recommend this restaurant highly. Kincardine finally has a classy restaurant that will keep any foodie satisfied.
