We ordered the meatballs they weren’t hot. Neither was the flatbread. Bread was blah. But entree was good we ordered prime rib and fishermen’s plate was really good. Waiter was okay.

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).

Great meeting place for friends. Wish they would have offered happy hour drink specials in the dining room but it's only in the bar area which was full, other than that, great place with great food, good selection and friendly service.

We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, and the service was great! Our waitress was very helpful and offered suggestions at our request. The food was cooked well and not over done. The flavors were good and distinct without being ‘too much.’ We ordered the assorted cheese appetizer, and the flavors were delicious and the presentation was lovely. The amount of food served was substantial. The fish was fresh, well seasoned, and with absolutely no hint of a fishy taste. We had a good time and will definitely be returning to enjoy another meal.

This was our second time at Sterling's. We wanted to take my mother and father in law, and they LOVED it. We all ordered the fried brussels sprouts to split and they did not disappoint. So flavorful. I ordered the bistro burger, my better half ordered the prime rib sliders, and his folks ordered the wedge salad and blackened chicken pasta. Everything was spot on. I don't always order burgers or sliders at restaurants like this (because there are so many other amazing options) but I will definitely be ordering both again; very memorable and cooked well. We also ordered the red sangria and sterling martini...holy cow! The red sangria was sweet enough without being overbearing and the sterling martini was so smooth. Would definitely recommend both.

The sea bass was very disappointing for the price. It had a sweet glaze on it which ruined it.
The menu did not describe it that way. I told the server and he told the chef. The chef's reply was he knew it tasted sweet too but that is how everyone likes it. I thought that was an odd reply. It doesn't say much for the chef or everyone else who orders the sea bass. The menu description of the sea bass should be changed.

We are new to the area and always drive by Sterlings from work. We made a reservation for a Friday and got there a little early for happy hour. The hostesses were very nice and professional and so sweet. We will DEFINITELY be going back for happy hour, half off wines and cocktails & $6 apps is incredible for the kind of service and food offered. At dinner, we ordered the ahi tuna flatbread, fried brussel sprouts, bacon mac & cheese and the steak tips. Our waitress was on top of it and everything was absolutely perfect and so flavorful. We will definitely be back and can't wait to bring friends with us.

Had Easter dinner there with spouse, son & his ladyfriend. Good service, drinks were swiftly served and good, and we were left alone for a short while to talk and decide on meals. Just short enough. Food was really good. Didn't have dessert as we had some at home. We'll be back.

Went with another couple and all of our dishes were good. Especially liked that our waiter did not rush us and we were able to take our time. Biggest issue in my opinion was the noise level was somewhat loud.
