Lunch on the cheap...NOT!

We stopped at Pistachio's with a friend who suggested this spot. At first glance, we were surprised by the cost of the meals. Most lunch options were upward of $15. I opted for the special salad of the day which included, apple slices, spinach, gorgonzola cheese, walnuts and a dressing. The... read more

Was with a large group for a business dinner. The service was friendly, but very slow. There were only few others in the restaurant at the time. However, the food was excellent with a good-sized portion. Good selection on the menu including pastas and pizza. Very modern decor, with high ceilings. Large bar area.

Hello, I am sorry for your time here @ Pistachios. No one informed me of any issues that day. I can say that the special salad you had that day was not listed as a spinach salad, is was described as mixed greens. Sorry for the confusion. I do have a more price friendly menu coming out in 2 weeks.... More

Visited last Fri. 10/16/15. My friend and I used to like to dine here, in fact we had our first dinner date here in 2007. We always had a special fondness for the cuisine and atmosphere. We had a bad experience a couple of years ago with a wait staff member who messed up our order and did not want... More

Menu was pretty limited- daughter wanted chicken and there were not many options. Also a bit pricey. The burgers were cooked to order but lacking in toppings and flavor. Great selection of martinis, however- will stop by next time for a few drinks!

Stopped by for lunch. Husband and I shared a turkey avocado club sandwich. Got it with fresh chips. Sandwich was average at best and definitely not up to the level of quality one would expect at $12.99. Will never return.

This is a fun casual place with funky atmosphere. Great bar and a nice selection of food with excellent service. You can sit outside in nice weather. It's not a cheap place but the value is there. I have been going there for many years. One of my favorites!

Came here for a lunch for work and enjoyed it. Lots of refills on ice tea and most of the meals were excellent. My beet salad however was a little lacking in beets!

Always fantastic! Never have to wait! Mediterranean Sampler is to die for! I never understood why this place isn't packed every night. Maybe because it's hidden in a little strip mall? Terrific!
