Inconsistency and New Competition might spell the end.

Pistachio is a good place to go at the spur of the moment on a Friday night. No reservations were needed because the place was half empty. Our server was indifferent and scarce. One meal was tasty and well-presented, one was poorly presented and contained a mangled gristly piece of beef that... read more

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!

We were a family group of 18 at Pistacio for lunch. Service was great. Servers were pleasant and accommodating. Food arrived quickly and was hot and well prepared. Most family members ordered different menu items all dishes arriving within minutes of each other. Everyone was positive about this dining experience.

If you are looking for a clean, very roomy place to have dinner with a huge bar, the Pistachio's Bar & Grille is the place for you! Great food, atmosphere, pleasant serving, good prices. The menu will address everyone's desire.

Worst service I think I have ever had. The waitress was upset we showed up an hour before breakfast ended (we were the only people there). Then we felt rushed through the meal. The food was not good. Needless to say, we will not return.

My husband and I come here often for dinner, and I have also been here with friends for dinner, and with family for brunch. It has a large menu. An advantage of the brunch is that you can get typical breakfast/brunch foods, like omelets, but also regular dinner food.The service used to be slow but has been getting better. It... More

My husband and I had lunch here with my mom. It was about eight months ago and all I can tell you is that the food was quite unsatisfactory. I can't remember what we ordered but unfortunately for Pistachios I do remember that not one of us appreciated the food. We were all in agreement that it is unlikely that... More

Decent food and service but unless you are half deaf, this place is unbearably loud when it has even a small crowd. Tried it three times because it is close to home but have given up
