A nice vibe for a restaurant in a strip shopping center. Good Martini specials but only at the bar. Food has always been good and the staff has been very nice and friendly. The price of the food is a bit high and there are other restaurants in this market that I would go to first. With that said, we... More

Went with my husband to try this place out. Not bad. I enjoyed the vibe, the decor, the atmosphere and the menu. A little pricey but we enjoyed treating ourselves. Food was very tasty.

The facility is attractive but that is the end of the positive review. Very pricey for the caliber of food. Interesting menu but poorly executed. If you do have a complaint, don't ask for the owner, he can be arrogant.

Overpriced considering the small portions. Food was tasty, but come on! The place is far from romantic. It is in a small strip mall. The wait staff could be better; they are friendly but they should have accepted my statement that I am not an alcohol drinker especially at noon. We won't go back.

Enjoyed the food and the martinis. The veggie sampler was a total rip off. $20 led us to believe it would have been a generous portion, but not so. And being that tomatoes are in season, it was shameful to put pale tomatoes, like what we see in the winter, on our $20 platter. No one even touched them. Our... More

Stopped in with a friend for dinner. The martinis were good and the menu had a lot of variety. The service, however, was spotty at best. It would be nice if I didn't have to hold a glass aloft over my head to finally get the waitress' attention. I ordered a tuna special and, while it looked appealing, it was... More

We have been going to Allentown for the Drum Corp event for 24 years and always struggle to find a decent non chain restaurant. We discovered Pistachio's about 10 years ago and we keep coming back. Their happy hour is a great deal--granted you have to sit at the bar to get the discounted prices--and the menu has tons of... More

I have enjoyed cocktails and apps. here in the past but have never been overwhelmed with the dinner selection.........until now! A last minute, late night decision brought my wife and I here at 9:30 on a Sat. eve. Not only was the outdoor service extremely cordial, my entrée was exceptional! A half of chicken served over pasta with shrimp, Andouille... More

Really don't understand the complaints here, this place is easily one of the better eateries in this food forgotten Valley we call home. Very well prepared, imaginative dishes, presented well. Yes, I'm sure to the Buffalo wing crowd it's over priced, but for those looking for something not TGI Fridays, it's actually a little gem. I guess we've been lucky... More
