Great Menu

A nice menu selection in a small venue. Only downside is that it can get very crowded at times. Try a mid-week day for the best dining experience.

The meals we ordered were good and well prepared, as was the one salad ordered. It has a very comfortable dining area. The Pistachio Grille should include a small salad with the meal price.

I was with my family (5) of us to celebrate my Sister's Birthday. We thought the food was good but the service was OK. Also, 3 of us ordered the chicken parmegiana over pasta. First, our bill had an addtional $26.00 that should not have been there. Our waitress corrected the bill and then added an additional $3.00 for the... More

My husband and I ate here recently for dinner. To be honest we had a Restaurant.com gift certificate which is why we went here as it is a bit out of the way from where we live. My husband got the wedge salad (very good) and chicken parm - which he also said was very good. I got the asian... More

Not cheap,but fair for an upscale menu, always check Out Groupon for any restaurant, which gave us a nice discount. They do have signs they are no longer taking Restaurant.com. We were here previously, still great. We had the Asparagus Tempura, very tasty and a Argula Salad, with pears and grapefruit, different and tasty. For our meals, specials of Duck... More

This restaurant is hidden in a "nothing" strip mall, and you would never stop in driven by curb appeal! Once inside, it gets a little nicer, but DO make reservations. Reservations seem to confuse them sometimes, and recently we were even asked politely to leave as a party was waiting for our table. They want you to eat and leave,... More

I went for a girls night and had the Calamari as my main. It was AWFUL! Very greasy and the batter had a sweetness to it that was off-putting. Others at the table were okay with their dinners but no one was raving about the place.

The Pistachio Grille is a nice local BYOB with food on par with some of the fancier restaurants in Center City, Philadelphia. Service is attentive and specials are very good. Prices are a bit on the high side, but we've never had a problem with the quality of the food. Also helps to have a Groupon!

My husband and I went there for dinner since I had a certificate from Restaurant.com. I showed the hostess the certificate and she said they accepted it. When the waitress came to the table, after explaining in painstaking detail all of their specials, I asked her if the certificate was still accepted. She also said yes. Long story short, we... More
