PISTACHE is a Parisian-style French bistro with a Mediterranean twist. It serves simple, delicious meals made with fresh, local and imported products. It seats 180 people and is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
Prices are moderate and the recipes nutritionally healthy. Service is casual and efficient. The atmosphere is upbeat with a definite European flair. The interior is reminiscent of the Art Nouveau, which defined most brasseries and bistros opened in 1920"s Paris. It boasts cozy seating with numerous red leather banquettes, a full bar and giant antique mirrors. The restaurant has a feel of "Always been there". It is classic, retro-modern and sophisticated but unpretentious.
The outdoor patio overlooks Centennial Park, the Fountains and the Intracoastal Waterway. It is shaded with large umbrellas and seats 30 people in a Riviera-like setting.

Excellent, as always, both service and food. We tried some small plates this time, as opposed to our usual entrees, and were very pleased . Really never disappointed when we eat here. They know how to run a restaurant.

Great French bistro that consistently does excellent food. We consistently have superb food and my husband and father swear that Pistache does the best burger of any restaurant they know (in the US or the UK); I think the French bread and butter are as close to the "genuine" thing you can get in this country. Delicious! Monday night the service was really bad - we waited 50 minutes for our main courses, no starters - but this is unusual; normally it's very efficient. Pistache can be very noisy, and cold, so I love the tables outside, but you generally need to request one in advance.

Swordfish was pricey 32$ and not the best cut . Two smaller size pieces properly cooked but somewhat tough .

The Onion Soup is a must. The food was very good, the wait staff professional and friendly. We sat in the back room away from the jazz band and the music level was perfect. The dish was beautiful as well as delicious.

We saw this restaurant on the show “Check Please” so we decided to check it out.
We took the new Brightline train from Ft Lauderdale.
The train ride was fun, the restaurant was great, excellent food and service. We will definitely come back.

Very authentic late 19th Century Bistro decor. Great French cuisine. Lots of interesting dishes to choose from. Very helpful and efficient service even tho it was a very busy Friday night. If you like outdoor dining you can enjoy sitting on a lovely raised patio overlooking the park. Owner is French and owns a wonderful patisserie down the street that serves breakfast and lunch. Needless to say his deserts are to die for. A must visit for the Palm Beaches!

Valentine's day... So I had a 7:30 reservation and believe it or not I fell asleep at 6. My date texted me at 6:45 and I woke up and called Pistache to tell them I fell asleep and was going to be late... They said it wasn't a problem. Got there about 8... It wasn't a problem... They were busy.. Still honored my reservation. Great food.. Great night. Very happy.

About the best restaurant meal I have had since we moved to Florida 2 years ago from NYC. We went for lunch. I had the steak tartare and my friend had the mussels both of which which were excellent. The ambience was good , the tables were not crowded together and the noise level was acceptable. The menu was varied and more interesing than the ususal fare.
The vodka gimlet was generous.

Food was excellent, service was a little slow. We arrived at 12 noon and we left at 1:00. We were in a hurry we wanted to see the dogs that were in the Paws in the Park event and then catch our Brightline train to Fort Lauderdale.

The overall experience was good, not great. I ordered a lavender martini and when I mentioned to our waiter that it was not what I expected he did not pick up on the implication and offer me another drink, which any seasoned waitperson would do. We asked him if he would light the candle on our table and he said of course. We never saw him again. The food was good, a little under seasoned. We never ordered dessert because we waited too long and it was not offered to us. I did not leave a good gratuity and we have no plans to return. My opinion is they should know better and pay better attention. There’s a lot of competition out there.

We have been to Pistache often fir lunch and dinner, had not gone to brunch until today. Not surprisingly, each of us was thrilled with our choices: salmon tartar, omelette, one selects the 3 elements one desires and the special omelette of the day—crab meat omelette !!! And being that we chose the 11 AM seating, we enjoyed the freshest baked bread which is always offered and never refused!

There was a small combo playing, which caused us to seek a table on the back area as we did not wish to compete with music fir our conversation. We enjoyed the music that drifted toward us, but it seems to never fail at any restaurant offering jazz or other live music that ease of conversation suffers. That said, we would return for bunch “on a New York minute”!!

As ever, the food and service were superb, however, tonight we felt the restaurant seemed noisy . Perhaps it was because we were seated against a wall and by the glass window by the outdoor patio, where we might have been receiving /retaining ambient sound from the restaurant in front of us. When we return in Friday night, we will ask to be seated elsewhere. Let me say that noise has never before been an issue!

We love dining here!

We went forSunday brunch but it was spoiled by a very loud trio playing very loud music. Because of this, it was difficult to hear or be heard. A pianist would have worked better in this venue.
The food was delicious, but the wait staff left much to be desired. The waiter mixed up the orders and someone who was very specific about not wanting a pork dish was served said dish, much to her consternation.
When the mistake was pointed out the waiter assured our friend that it was the dish he had ordered, when in reality he had no idea.

The manager handled the situation with much aplomb and graciousness, a bad situation was saved from becoming a terrible one.

I would return to this restaurant because of its location and delicious food. Hopefully the wait staff will be trained a little better.

Cool restaurant in a great location. It had an authentic feel like a typical French cafe. The food is not necessarily fancy or gourmet but nonetheless, everything was delicious. I tasted my boyfriend's French onion soup and it was probably the best one I've ever had.
