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

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!

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.
