Great experience. Atmosphere was great. Everyone including the customers were very friendly. I Loved our waitress Nicole. Great service and good recommendations. Beef tips were excellent. Chilean Sea Bass and salmon were some of the best we’ve had. Thanks for a nice evening. We will definitely come back. 👍

The food never disappoints! However, the service, or lack thereof tonight, was a bit of a bummer. We had to ask for water refills on several occasions and basically force our server to clear our app plates. Also, we were never asked if we wanted another round of drinks.

It was also really warm in the restaurant.

We indicated we were there for a bday but had to remind them and ask if they did anything

This visit completely made up for the previous Sunday's visit! Liz was EXCEPTIONAL!! The food was hot, delicious as always, served at the appropriate times, and we were able to enjoy ourselves without being rushed! It was HEAVEN, and Liz made it that way, after I explained my disappointment in service from the previous week. You guys are back on my first choice list, thanks to Liz!! I love Justin too, but he wasn't there that evening! I will be back, with MORE friends!!

We enjoyed Sterling Bistro. Only issue we had was that the tonic in the vodka and tonics tasted different then we've received at different restaurants. Wine was great. Other than that the food was great.

This may just have been an off night for our server. He took a while to come to my table, and he seemed to be in a hurry, so I asked for a drink, and off he went. While he was there, he DID ask if I was waiting for someone. I told him that I was, he said ok, and scurried off. After he brought the drink, he didn't even stay at the table long enough for me to order any food, nor did he ask if I wanted to wait for my friend before I ordered. My drink was very weak & not much ice. (The drinks that I have had every other time were terrific!) When I caught him running by me the next time, I practically had to grab him to get him to stop at my table so I could find out his name, and even then, he said it as he continued to walk away. I didn't have any food the whole time I sat there! When my friend finally arrived about 30 minutes later, he seemed to run up to the table, looked right at her, and asked if her martini was ok, (He never once asked ME how MY drink was, and I was paying the bill!) I asked for a 2nd drink, because I thought that maybe the 2nd one would be better, but it was awful too. I just let it sit there. At that time, we ordered a calamari. He also brought my friend her 2nd drink, but for HER, he came back to ask her if it was ok, still not looking at me, then walking away once again. My friend finally had to ask him if he would come to the table a little more often. He didn't come back EVER to ask if we wanted to order DINNER, which is why we came there! He went to the hostess stand (near our booth) but only played with his phone. (I guess he thought that that was close enough to the table for us to see him). Since he never asked us if we wanted anything to eat, we finally just asked for the check. It was $40. I tipped him $20, and we left. I am in the business, and have been for over 40 years, and this was NOT good service. Luckily your food is so amazing that I came back the following week, and Liz made everything GREAT! Thank you for your time!

Sterling's never fails, service, entrees, etc. Most of the time I have sea bass, had again, excellent. Friends, first time visit were highly impressed with everything. Quieter than usual, this was the last week before school starts. Bar area was quite busy.

Everything was pretty much perfect until the end. I had gift cards that had sufficient funds on it and was told after cashing out that I could not put the tip on the gift card. The waiter was great until the end when he was a little flipit with me and said this card does not do me any good. The only way I could use this is if a customer paid in cash and then I turned around and used the gift card to pay their bill. I had to try to find cash as I did not bring my wallet with credit/debit cards in it. This is the only place that does not allow tips on the card.

Went for Filet and Lobster tail special and the food was great. The only complaint if it is one is that we had to ask for bread 3 times in the bar area. We have been there a few times and will be back

Wanted to like the restaurant, bar area is large. We had a drink in the bar before our reservations. When we were seated we knew what we wanted so we ordered. We weren't half way through our salad when our dinner was served (huge pet peeve).
It was almost like fast food.

My husband and I had an incredible experience here. Our server, Sarah, was most attentive, kind, courteous, and very efficient. The Sterling bistro is offering several summer specials and we had the lobster over linguini. Absolutely delicious! This restaurant truly is a gem.

Never had dinner, bar was out of the liquor required for 2 martini drinks that I ordered. I thought to myself if the manager is to lazy to go to a local liquor store to keep the bar stocked to the drinks on there menu then I’ll go we’re they do. Andiamo Bistro 2 minutes away

We've been to the Sterling Bistro several times and each time was a pleasure. The food is delicious from the appetizers to the desert. We enjoy the Blue Chips appetizer with wonderful and crunchy house made potato chips, blue cheese, onions and more. I had the prime rib and it came exactly as ordered (medium rare). It was well seasoned and mouth watering. My husband had the scallops which were also cooked to perfection. We finished our meal by sharing chocolate mouse cake. Oh, yes, we were celebrating our anniversary and it was my birthday (got a special treat for that).
